Surrounded by 4 million acres of national forest, the spacious and luxurious main lodge and the 23 private log cabins are nestled in the trees. Privacy and pampering are hallmarks of Triple Creek Ranch, and each cabin features king-size beds, complimentary wet bar, wood-burning fireplace, a private or nearby hot tub, and golf cart 
transportation during non-snow months. Original Western art from the owners’ private collection can be found throughout the property.

Triple Creek is ideal for romantic getaways, honeymoons, elopements and small board meetings. 
Triple Creek will open for its first-ever Thanksgiving Celebration this year from November 21 to December 2, 2013. The highlight is a special Thanksgiving feast created by Chef Jacob Leatherman that pays homage to the bounty of America. That will be followed the next day by a Thanksgiving Barbecue. Late fall and early winter are ideal times to visit Triple Creek Ranch, where a day might begin with an early morning horseback ride or a team penning competition. Depending on the weather, guests can go fly fishing for trophy cutthroat trout on the Bitterroot River at this Orvis-endorsed ranch or head out for dog sledding with Triple Creek’s resident musher, Jessie Royer, who will compete in her 12th Iditarod in Alaska this winter. This winter from Jan 4 -19, 2014, Dog Sledding is being offered free to Ranch guests, a $325 per person value.
