Great ranch experience, options for relaxation, options for excitement. Amazing rides, classic American food! Plenty warm if you get cold. Stay a week. See Glacier Park. Enjoy the rodeo and the trails. Definitely more for the wild type but with enough luxury to remind you you're on vacation! Wonderful staff! Will return!

We stayed at Bar W Guest Ranch, on their fall Cattle drive holiday (September 2016). From start to finish we were made so welcome. Dave, family, staff & wranglers were so friendly & helpful. Absolutely beautiful Ranch. Gorgeous horses. We were given horses to match our riding ability. The wranglers, Nick, Thain, Alyssa & Rebekah were great. Totally professional, putting...

From moment one the Bar W staff was welcoming and accommodating. My glamping tent was clean, cozy and plenty warm though the temperatures were 20 degrees colder than expected (and it snowed one day). The trails around the ranch were muddy due to the season, narrow and a bit rocky, but all of the horses were sure-footed. The ranch rides...

I always like to visit a new guest ranch each year and Bar W fell short of advertising promos and expectations on many levels. I enjoyed the glamping tent; cozy and relaxing. Food, ok. Riding, average. Fellow travelers were lots of fun. Ok week but would I go again or recommend? No.

We feel really bad that we did not hit the mark here. We strive to reach every “reasonable” mark set by each of our guests. In fact, during our orientation on Sunday nights I personally talk with the guests telling them that we want this to be a participatory vacation. We, of course, want them to participate in all of...

We stayed for 3 nights in the Aspen suite from Sept 4-7. We did the 3 night because we have never ridden before and weren't sure what to expect but boy do we wish we had stayed for the whole week. The all day ride along the Canadian boarder and learning to lope were the highlights of the trip. The...

We spent our annual family week vacation at the Bar W and had a wonderful time. My wife and I enjoyed "glamping", luxurious tent camping, while the our daughter, son-in-law and grandson stayed in the Eagle's nest. The words tent camping don't do this justice. You have a very comfortable bed, couch, refrigerator and both heater and air conditioner. The...

We had three generations. Only the grandparents (my husband and I) had spent any time on horses. The 5 grandchildren - ages 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 - had never spoken of any great desire to ride. But we all agreed to try it. We had a blast. The staff was wonderful with all of the kids (as well...
