• Montana’s Triple Creek Ranch recognized as a Top Resorts in the West

    POSTED November 9, 2017

Montana’s Triple Creek Ranch was named as one of the Top Resorts in the West in the 30th annual Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. This independently-owned resort doesn’t just provide guests with a comfortable and luxurious place to stay; they provide guests the opportunity to partake in unique and exciting experiences. Buried in the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana, the ranch offers immersive weekends in viticulture, birding and the arts, horseback riding, fly fishing with Orvis-endorsed guides, skijoring, and panning for sapphires. 25 unique and very private log cabins come with a wood-burning fireplace, king-size bed, fully stocked wet bar and outdoor hot tub. For 25 years, owners Craig and Barbara Barrett have been creating a warm and welcoming mountain retreat.

Chef Jacob Leatherman’s thoughtfully prepared menu highlights the experience gained from his time cooking at the James Beard House in New York. Sommelier Jeremy White directs the wine program and received consecutive Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence awards since 2005 and a yearly Best Of, Award of Excellence from the publication since 2012. A series of Vintner Weekends brings some of the world’s best winemakers and vineyard owners to Triple Creek Ranch.
