Bar W Guest Ranch

Go to All Members

The Bar W Guest Ranch in Whitefish, Montana is open year-round and is ready to show you what Western hospitality is all about! As a small Montana ranch with about 30-40 guests per week, we pride ourselves on remaining flexible and attending to each guests expectations. While there are many activities offered at the Bar W, horses are the center of attention and riding is our focus. Each guest is carefully paired with a Bar W ranch horse for the week. All riding abilities are welcome and we offer daily trail rides, ranging from one hour to all day, horsemanship lessons, barrel racing, and cow sorting.

There’s a variety of Western activities available outside of the saddle including; swimming on Spencer Lake, fly casting lessons, archery, skeet shooting, roping lessons, hiking, and our kids program. Activities continue into the evening with square dancing, attending local rodeos, country singers, s’mores around the campfire, and wagon rides.

During the summer month’s children are the heart of the ranch. Kids learn to explore nature with our kid’s counselors who guide them on nature walks, crafts, fishing lessons, horse painting, and more. Spring and fall are adult oriented with themed specialty weeks including; Cowgirl Up, Cattle Drives, Adults Only, and Photography Weeks.

We’re known for our superb customer service, intimate size, down-home cooking, and well-rounded activity selection. The Bar W is conveniently located 4 miles from the vibrant resort town of Whitefish, 20 minutes from Glacier International Airport, and 30 minutes from Glacier National Park.

At the Bar W, people arrive as guests, and leave as family. Give us a call and start planning your dude ranch vacation!
