Bed and Breakfast at Bear Creek Guest Ranch!

We want you to expect so much more than the words "Bed & Breakfast!  As the name implies, we are also a fully functioning Guest Ranch.  Which means when you stay with us, you can take advantage of ALL we have to offer.  In addition, you will be part of, and will enjoy, feeling the genuine nature of western hospitality, and culture .

We welcome you to stay in one of our 5 cabins during your visit.  Each cabin is uniquely different and separated from the others, so you are ensured your privacy and comfort during your stay. Breakfast is "by Diana" and served in the Sun Room of the main lodge every morning at 830.  Coffee is on at 7, so if you’re an early riser come on over and grab a cup!  

  • Our Property: While staying at the ranch we like to emphasize that our home is your home too, so we encourage guests to take advantage of the entire property. Whether it’s checking out the horses at the corral, taking a walk in the back pasture in the evening, going for a quick hike into Glacier National Park, or even sitting down and shooting the breeze with us, the place is yours to explore. In addition, the main lodge is also open for anyone to come in at anytime between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. We have a pool table, library, games and a reading area, so come on in and enjoy yourself!
  • Location: We are located just off of highway 2 between East and West Glacier at mile marker 192 and are ideally placed for those interested in seeing Glacier National Park, the Blackfeet Indian Reservation or the Bob Marshal Wilderness. In addition, we are just 55 minutes from Glacier International Airport, where car rentals are available.
  • Additional Ammentities: Did we mention that we offer horseback rides for those interested?  Just let us know and we can set up a ride right away!

We pride ourselves on our hospitality so you can expect us to be waiting for you at the main lodge when you arrive, "We like to say you arrive as strangers but leave as friends."  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us any time via email or phone (406-226-4489). We’d love to hear from you.
