About The Ranch at Rock Creek

The Ranch at Rock Creek is an all-inclusive guest ranch which covers 6,600 acres and is nestled in one of Montana's most pristine valleys. The Ranch offers year-round unique vacations on an authentic 19th-century homestead. It has been recognized as the World's First Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Ranch.

As a Relais & Châteaux property, we've spent the last 14 years expanding the frontiers of luxury travel with our one-of-a-kind accommodations, extensive amenities, inventive cuisine and access to over 30 guided outdoor activities on The Ranch.

The Employee Experience

Our employees come not only from Montana, but from all across the United States, Europe, and Asia. Meeting new people, creating custom guest experiences, trying new activities, and taking advantage of all The Ranch and the local community has to offer is part of a typical employee experience.

The Ranch is located in a very remote area and those seeking the hustle and bustle of city life should not look here. Successful employees enjoy the rural beauty of the area and the outdoor activities it provides. View a year on The Ranch from an employee's point of view here.

For Fun

The Ranch at Rock Creek staff enjoys Montana at its finest. There is exceptional access to hiking, camping, and backpacking in the Anaconda-Pintler Wilderness. There are plenty of chances to try new hobbies, such as horseback riding, archery, ice skating or sapphire mining. Southwest Montana is an excellent place for budding photographers, who will see some of the most diverse wildlife in the United States.

In addition, staff members will find themselves steps away from Rock Creek, one of the world’s only Blue Ribbon trout streams. More fishing access is enjoyed on Flint Creek and Georgetown Lake. If you love to fly fish, there is almost no better place in the world to spend a season. Just 25 minutes away, Discovery Ski Area is an alpine skiing destination that becomes a mountain biking mecca in the summer.
