Bar W Guest Ranch

The Bar W is open year-round and ready to treat you with authentic Western hospitality. The Bar W Guest Ranch is family owned and operated and is located a stone’s throw from Whitefish.

Nestled at the base of Spencer Mountain and surrounded by pine-covered ridges the ranch is an idyllic piece of Montana paradise.  Spencer Lake is perfect for cooling off during the warm summers with swimming, canoeing and fishing.  The ranch offers 3,000 acres of state land with endless trails to explore by horseback, hiking or mountain biking.

During the summer months we showcase the iconic Western vacation by offering 6 night and 3 night all inclusive package vacations. We feature western activities such as horseback riding, skeet shooting, archery, cattle work, roping, square dancing, fly fishing lessons and endless outdoor pursuits.  For vacationers interested in just a taste of the West, during the warm seasons we offer hourly horseback rides, wagon ride dinners and “Western Weekends” which is ideal for groups

During the winter months we offer nightly bed and breakfast stays in our main lodge or cabin suite.  The lodge features 6 unique bedrooms, a game room, living room and hot tub.  If you’re looking for rustic luxury our cabin is not to be missed and offers two suites with kitchenettes and a charming view.  During the winter we offer 45 minute sleigh rides pulled by our team of gentle draft horses.

Give us a call today to experience relaxing hospitality and endless outdoor pursuits in the heart of Glacier Country.
