“So much to do...so much to eat...”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We visited TCR for the first time in July 2014 with our two twenty-something kids. We had a cabin and the kids had a cabin. Both were well appointed with large bathrooms with separate sinks and toilets (his and hers) and a very large shower. We were in Pintler which backs up to a ravine and a creek. We saw deer almost every day and lots of squirrels and ground squirrels playing around the bird feeder. TCR provides golf carts for cabin guests and these made it easy to run back and forth to the cabin and the lodge - especially if you forgot something. There are so many activities to enjoy. We went fishing, hiking, trap shooting, sapphire panning, trail riding, wildlife viewing and even tried the team penning. Staff who ran outings were very polite and helpful. Brenna was particularly patient and positive with the team penning as we really had no idea what we were doing. We had a great experience. TCR allows you to fish over on their sister ranch which was a great opportunity for some quiet time and river exploring. They provide all of the equipment you need for fishing. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Wes was particularly helpful in making suggestions about other activities that we would probably like. TCR also has a nice pool where you can hang out in the afternoons after a hot day of exploring and we also played a fun game of Boccee Ball. We really enjoyed the food. Most of it was excellent with only a few exceptions. We were there for a week and the menu typically consisted of three entrée options - meat, chicken, and fish. The starter and salad options were probably my favorites - although one night the chef did a papparadelle pasta that was outstanding. Dessert was always hard to pass up too. We particularly enjoyed the "meet the chef" night where you got to go back into the kitchen and literally meet the chefs including the dessert chef. It was outstanding. We ordered wine every night with each of us taking a turn making the selection. Jeremy, the sommelier, was very helpful and knowledgeable without being at all pretentious (as some sommeliers can be). He made great recommendations. Overall, we had a great time and would definitely go back. Even in our week stay there were still activities that we would like to have done or additional trails to hike. On our last day we hiked up in the trails behind the ranch and finally saw the elk I had been wanting to see all week.

Room Tip: Pintler cabin is relatively private with a nice balcony overlooking a ravine. We saw deer almost ev...

We celebrated our anniversary here with 8 of our family members. We had 3 cabins and a wonderful 6 day experience. Planning this event was enjoyable as Catherine Reed was always available to answer questions and make suggestions. When we arrived she took us on a tour of our cabins and the hotel properties. Our grandson is kind of a fussy eater so she took him, and us, into the kitchen to meet the staff and chef. He made his requests and they were ready to meet his needs. The staff was always so pleasant and seemed to enjoy what they did. Our accomodations were great and the ranch so pleasant and comfortable. This is a first class experience. We did horseback riding, hiking, nature tours, archery, sapphire panning and just enjoyed each other, the staff and our surroundings. Not inexpensive but a good return on investment.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Aspen, Sappire & Bitteroot and all were excellent.

It was fabulous from head to toe. We flew to Missoula and then rented a car and drove to the ranch. It takes about 90 minutes to get there. We had room "Nez Perce". Our location was perfect and so was the room.

This is a beautiful resort with really nice cabins and lodge rooms. This resort includes all your food and drinks. There are some exceptions that you have to pay for but what they offered included was more than adequate for us. We arrived very late and they actually put dinner in our cabin for us. A really nice thing to do. The rooms are well appointed with with wood burning fireplaces and mini kitchens. Our particular cabin had a very small bathroom which was hard to place your cosmetics and things but was very nice. The bed was very comfortable. The cabin was isolated so it was peaceful. Many treats are left for you. We wanted to do a drive to see areas to take pictures and they prepared a nice lunch for us. We were given many choices. The things to do are horseback riding, fishing, hiking. We brought our mountain bikes so there were good fire roads to ride on. Not very technical. All the fishing is done by outside contractors using a boat. I would have preferred a guide to take me out on the river with wadders. That to me is real trout fishing. The food is just ok. Nothing to write home about. This was a disappointed to me being a real foodie. The staff was friendly and said all the right things but some folks did not appear to mean it. It was like they had no heart. We showed up for dinner and no one was there. There was a barbeque at the owners house to celebrate the purchase of the land 20 years ago. However, we were not told about the event. We were not the only ones as there were three others not told. One staff member said "a notice was placed in our cabin as said why did you not read it?" So please read everything they put in your cabin or you will miss things. After the dinner, I went back to our room to check and she was right as there was paperwork about events but it was on page two. The owners house was interesting to visit as it is filled with amazing Native American and cowboy art work. That was a treat.

This is certainly a first class resort - the staff support to make your holiday special is nothing short of superb, no request fazes them and the personal attention you receive is outstanding. Sure we were visiting at a time when not many were staying, but we had wonderful and often one-to-one care. The setting is spectacular, the cabin spacious, comfortable and well appointed, the horse riding terrific even for such as ourselves with limited experience, the bird watching and nature generally extremely good, and the other activities (we did a cooking school) very well arranged and managed. Finally, the food is absolutely superb, from breakfasts to packed lunches to top class dinners and some very fine wines. It is expensive, but you also get a lot for your money.

Room Tip: I doubt there's a bad one, just some cabins are closer to the ranch house than others

Clearly Triple Creek is one of the best ranches/resorts in the US. I would equate it to Crystal Cruises on Land.
Firstly Montana is a wonderful state (except perhaps in the middle of winter). The location of the ranch is prefect; near great fishing, wonderful horse riding trails. The food is 5 star and the service 5 star plus.

Room Tip: Lots of different cabins to choose from. All are luxury equipped.

We went the first week of April. The weather was all 4 seasons which made it interesting. The service is nothing short of amazing. There is nothing that isn't addressed. We sat at the bar and had a drink and asked for a snack. The bartender came back with 3 cheeses, crackers, fruit spread and grapes. We had a chef's dinner in the kitchen that was fabulous. They take pictures of you doing all the activities and leave them in your room. We went skiing, horseback riding, fly fishing, sapphire panning,archery, photo safari, bird watching,and hiking to name a few. The hot tub on the deck was a great way to relax at the end of a busy day. The food was delicious. The cabins were beautifully done. Fabulous bathroom!
I would highly recommend Triple Creek Ranch.
