Stave Puzzle Weekend

May 4-8, 2023

Diabolical fun!

Sitting down to solve a Stave puzzle is a favorite pastime for Triple Creek Ranch guests. These devilish, hand-carved creations are the cause of much vexation and delight!

In 2016 we welcomed our first group of puzzlers to an official Stave Puzzle Weekend. The intimate, tranquil nature of Triple Creek Ranch proved to be a great setting to focus on these fun, diabolical puzzle challenges and the weekend was a great success! In 2023 we will host the 7th Annual Stave Puzzle Weekend from May 4-8, 2023. Learn more about the creation of these masterful mind-teasers and test your skill alongside fellow guests for chances to win a prized Stave Puzzle.


  • Thursday Arrival and Monday Departure (Puzzling activities conclude on Sunday afternoon)
  • Welcome reception with Stave Puzzles Team
  • Three days of uninterrupted puzzling, competition and games

All puzzling activities are included in the all-inclusive nightly cabin rate. It is a perfect excuse to slip away for a weekend, cozied up with tea or a glass of wine to exercise your mind! Take a break from puzzling for a horseback ride or hike through endless miles of Montana forest, and recount the story of that one stubborn hand carved piece over the sublime options of our nightly dinner menu.
