This romantic adults only getaway in Montana’s magical Bitterroot Valley deserves the accolades it receives.

The Atmosphere

Triple Creek Ranch is a romantic getaway that sits at the southern end of the Bitterroot Valley, one of Montana’s prettiest corners. Sitting west of the Continental Divide, this heavily forested area feels more like the Pacific Northwest than typical ‘Big Sky’ country. The Bitterroot Mountains form an imposing backdrop and pretty towns populate the valley floor alongside the river of the same name.

Triple Creek Ranch has recently been crowned ‘The Best Hotel in the World’ by Travel + Leisure, and while this weighty crown must be difficult to live up to, they certainly don’t disappoint. Quiet, unpretentious luxury with a focus on impeccable service and comfort, make this romantic Montana getaway the perfect place for couples to come and relax in nature.

Whether you are here for a romantic getaway or looking for some western adventure, the activity program is extensive and much is included. Sitting on 26,000 acres there are a multitude of riding trails that lead through the countryside. Fishing on the ranch’s section of the Bitterroot River is excellent and guided trips further afield can be arranged. For a more sedate pace, try panning for sapphires or a wildlife safari.

The ranch has an incredible collection of western art that can be found throughout the property. Works include classics from the likes of Charles Russell but also more contemporary paintings and sculpture. It also runs regular workshops where guests get to work with well known artists during their stay.

Your Room

Set among the trees, rooms are a series of private log cabins. All have king size log post beds, inviting living areas with wood burning fires and most have private hot tubs looking out into the woods. Guests are given their own golf buggies to get between the main lodge and their cabin.

Need to Know

The food at Triple Creek Ranch is a highlight. All meals are included and you can expect fresh local ingredients from Montana combined with influences from other regional worldwide cuisine. The wine list is one of the best we have seen and the glass fronted cellar is remarkable in itself.

The ranch is a grown up getaway and guests must be over sixteen.
