For those who aren’t familiar with the area, this means you are invited to explore millions of acres of pristine wilderness and experience first- hand the genuine western way of life. You’ll be witness to a culture of cowboys and cowgirls and you’ll have the distinct pleasure of meeting many of the wonderful folks of the Blackfeet Nation.

We also provide bear spray for hikers so no need to buy any!

Bed & Breakfast


The ranch is situated between the east and west entrances to Glacier National Park. Bear Creek Ranch is in an ideal location to explore both sides of the park. This option is ideal for those who are interested in trekking out on their own and exploring the local attractions, most notably Glacier National Park. We offer our B&B guests the opportunity to spend at least a day on horseback. We arrange your riding plans at any time.

Cattle Drives


 If you’re interested in moving cattle in and out of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, on working cattle ranches, or exploring uniquely different tracks of land each day, from the South Fork of the Two Medicine River all the way to the Canadian border, you’ve come to the right place. No matter your riding experience or abilities, we are confident we can find the right trip for you.

Big Fish in Big Country

There may not be a more dynamic fishery in the lower 48 than the lakes and streams just thirty minutes from our back door in Northern Montana.  I read recently about a fellow who had successfully fished Alaska’s Yukon  River and caught many rainbows in the six to eight pound range.  We fished those “thirty minute” waters this past summer and caught ‘bows in the 8- 10 pound range I kid you not. 

We also provide bear spray for hikers so no need to buy any!

A Cowboy’s Ethics

As you read ahead, let me give you an overview of what we do at Bear Creek Ranch. Basically, we have two types of guests at the ranch; those folks who are taking advantage of our Bed and Breakfast program and those that are taking part in our All Inclusive Adventure Ranch Vacations. The Bed and Breakfast folks are normally interested in hiking and touring Glacier National Park with perhaps a horseback ride or two. The All Inclusive Ranch Vacation Weeks are primarily all horseback in a variety of different locations and with different purposes like trail riding remote country or moving cattle on private ranches. Those activities are described on our site in detail.

Here at Bear Creek Ranch, we are true believers in the Western Way of Life, extending a genuine welcoming hand and maintaining that friendship throughout your stay and beyond. We want to exceed your expectations of the vacation that you planned and worked hard to afford. And when it’s all said and done, following goodbye hugs and handshakes, we hope your memories from your time spent at our ranch with you will be nothing but the best.

We’ve been in the business for almost forty years and still love it. The horses we ride, the country that we ride in, and the folks who ride with us make it just right. Ask ’em. We wouldn’t want it any different.

So here’s hoping you’re able to get away sometime soon and with any luck we’ll be crossing paths right here at Bear Creek Ranch.  Diana, Dusty, Indi, and I look forward to shaking your hand, doing some quality visiting, and swinging a leg over one of our horses headed out on a great ride.

We’ll see you soon.

Bill, Diana, Dusty, and Indi
