    Triple Creek Ranch

    The Triple Creek Ranch located in the small, western Montana town of Darby boasts an atmosphere that caters specifically to lovebirds. This adults-only resort features 12 different types of private cabins, each of which sports a wood-burning fireplace, a king-sized bed and easy access to hot tubs. But just because you can spend most of your time in your cabin doesn't mean you should. Recent guests loved the amorous atmosphere found in the Main Lodge and the tasty food at the restaurant, as well as the variety of activities available on the property (such as horseback riding, hiking, dog sledding and fly-fishing). For a more relaxing time, book an in-room massage or lounge by Triple Creek's pool. Just note that room rates here are pretty pricey, but you can breathe easy knowing that meals, drinks and select activities are included. And because this is a Relais & Châteaux property, Club 5C members can take advantage of the loyalty program perks here.

    The Ranch at Rock Creek
    Philipsburg, MT
    #2 in Best Hotels in Montana
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 278 reviewsTripAdvisor (278)

    Outdoor enthusiasts will feel at home at The Ranch at Rock Creek in Philipsburg, Montana. Divided into three categories – Signature Experiences, Trail Adventures and Traditions – on-site activities range from winter sports like ice skating and snowmobiling to warm weather pursuits like  horseback riding and archery. Travelers can also bowl, play billiards or shuffleboard, participate in complimentary yoga classes or enjoy a spa treatment. For meals, the ranch offers two restaurants, the upscale Granite Lodge and the casual, seasonal Blue Canteen. Specialty dinners and s'mores are also provided during the warmer months. After filling up on gourmet fare, visitors can retreat to one of the ranch's accommodations. Standard rooms feature rustic decor and come with perks like minifridges or minibars, bathrobes and loaner cruisers or mountain bikes. For additional space, travelers can reserve one of the cabins, barn rooms or luxury homes. Previous guests described their experiences as "amazing" and "magical" but warned that a stay here is expensive. However, room rates include all meals and drinks, activities and round-trip transfers to select airports. Guests at this Relais & Châteaux property are also charged a separate "Ranch Fee," which is 20 percent of the reservation total and includes staff gratuities, Wi-Fi access and daily snacks and beverages.

    The Lodge at Whitefish Lake is all about location. This cozy hotel sits just a mile and a half north of Whitefish, Montana, 6 miles from the Whitefish Mountain ski resort, and 28 miles from Glacier National Park.

Recent guests describe the hotel as cozy and inviting, praising the property's rustic decor. Rooms feature crackling fireplaces and mountain-inspired decorative accents; however, many recommend booking a lakeside room, unless you prefer views of the road. The Boat Club Lounge & Restaurant also wins visitors over with its locally sourced cuisine.

    Where both Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson stayed when they visited Billings, Montana, in the early 20th century, the historic Northern Hotel reopened in 2009. Now, lodgers will find contemporary features that complement the property's big sky country decor.

After working up an appetite exploring downtown Billings, grab a bite to eat at TEN restaurant, which serves steak and wild game and is worth the price tag because of its tasty food and impeccable service, according to recent guests. Another on-site eatery, Bernie's Diner, serves casual plates for breakfast and lunch daily.
