TripAdvisor Rating


Bar W Guest Ranch offers the perfect Western vacation for all ages. Located on Spencer Lake, 3,000 acres of mountains, foothills and open prairies welcome horseback riders. Guests will also enjoy horsemanship clinics, barrel racing, egg races and pole bending in the hotel’s indoor and outdoor arenas. Cowpoke lessons for beginners are offered, and for the more experienced cowboys and cowgirls, advanced lessons include roping, team penning and sorting cattle. Additionally, Bar W guests are encouraged to explore the entire property. Watch the trainers work the horses, fish for pike on Spencer Lake, hike the trails, mountain bike, swim in the lake, throw horseshoes, or play badminton and volleyball. You can even test your archery skills or try your hand at breaking some clay pigeons.

The hotel offers six spacious guestrooms in its main lodge, two cabin suites, and “glamping” tents, glamourous tents on wooden platforms. All guests enjoy a hearty breakfast and dinner daily, and though you’ll feel like you’re miles away from civilization, the hotel is just over 3 miles from the town of Whitefish, where you’ll find an array of shopping, dining, theater and nightlife options.

Memorable experience

by AntCar

We visited at the beginning of the season and had a fantastic time.
We had limited riding experience on arrival but found our riding skills improved every day and we came away feeling a lot more confident.

The staff are fantastic and will go the extra mile to help, food is great and you won’t come away hungry.

Best Vacation Ever!

My friend and I arrived at the Ranch very early in the season at the beginning of May and had the entire ranch to ourselves. It couldn't have been any more perfect. First, the staff generously upgraded us to one of the best rooms in the lodge, for free! The weather was gorgeous. I've never seen so many beautiful, perfect horses. (Seriously, I've ridden a lot of horses and the one they put me on was the most extraordinary animal I've ever met.) And the staff couldn't have been nicer or more capable and attentive. They planned the most magnificent rides for us out in Big MT Country and we enjoyed sharing our meals with everyone. The food was exceptional too! Cannot recommend this place more highly. It's really something special.
