About
Description
The Bar W is a year-round ranch ready to treat you with true western Montana hospitality - from the moment you arrive until long after the sun sets. Conveniently, located in NW Montana 4 miles from More Whitefish and 25 miles from Glacier National Park. There are over three thousand beautiful acres available for horseback riding and outdoor activities. Guests can saddle up and enjoy thousands of acres of Montana wilderness on horseback or enjoy the array of arena activities including barrel racing, pole pending, cow sorting, roping, and team penning. Take the family for a leisurely cruise around the lake on a row boat or canoe, jump in for a refreshing swim, hike miles of trails, enjoy a relaxing afternoon of birding and lawn games, or explore the unspoiled nature of Montana on Bar W mountain bikes. Follow our expert wranglers to the play meadow for skeet shooting or archery or take the afternoon to whitewater raft! Lodging accommodations include; main lodge, cabin, or glamping tents! Less
