Triple Creek Ranch Named No. 1 Montana Resort Hotel

July 9, 2024. Darby, MT. Triple Creek Ranch, the celebrated Relais & Chateaux luxury guest ranch, has been named the Number 1 Montana Resort Hotel in the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2024. This marks the 11th consecutive year as a World’s Best Award winner in which Triple Creek Ranch has held its winning position at the head of the influential T+L list.

Triple Creek Ranch received the highest honor when it was named The World’s Best Hotel in the Travel + Leisure 2014 Awards and has ranked consistently at the top ever since.

“We are proud to be named Montana’s Number 1 Resort Hotel yet again,” said Molly Smith and Kristen Snavely, Co-General Managers, in a joint statement. “We want to thank the readers of Travel + Leisure for supporting us. Many of them are loyal guests of Triple Creek Ranch. We look forward to welcoming them back and encouraging more readers to experience the Ranch and the beauty of Montana in the coming year.”

Triple Creek Ranch is a treasure of the American West, a classic guest ranch elevated to an exceptional level of hospitality and service in one of the most dramatic locations in Montana. It offers seclusion, tranquility, and an all-inclusive experience for a select number of guests who stay in one of the Ranch’s 25 western-style log cabins. They’re outfitted with wood-burning fireplaces, log frame beds, and peaceful views. Each cabin is unique, a private retreat, and most have their own alfresco hot tubs. A museum-worthy collection of original Western art from the owners’ private collection can be seen throughout the cabins and the main lodge. Triple Creek Ranch’s five-star food, wine, and service make it a true standout.

Executive Chef Jacob Leatherman is lauded for combining his classical French training with creative and innovative techniques to bring out the best flavors of the American West. His creations are paired with selections from the wine cellar, which has been awarded a Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence each year since 2012. The service throughout the Ranch is anticipatory, warm and welcoming, whether in the dining room, during in-cabin service, or while enjoying the array of Western activities on offer.

A day at Triple Creek Ranch can include horseback riding, cattle drives, hiking, mountain biking, sport shooting, archery, ATV adventures, and more. As an Orvis-endorsed lodge, Triple Creek Ranch offers guided flyfishing raft float trips on the trophy waters of the adjacent Bitterroot River. Yoga and guided meditation sessions are also a perfect way to unwind after a day outdoors. Many of these experiences are included in the room rate.

Winter is one of the most remarkable times of year for a visit to Triple Creek Ranch. It’s the ideal season for horseback riding in freshly fallen snow, snowshoeing, dog sledding, cross-country skiing, and alpine skiing. Famed for its Vintner Events with acclaimed winemakers, the ranch also has a notable Artist in Residence program, Artist Workshop Weekends, Culinary Weekends, Cowboy School, and a yearly Stave Puzzle Weekend.
