The Ranch at Rock Creek

Horseback riding, fly-fishing in a blue-ribbon trout stream, and archery classes keep visitors to this remote ranch, which sprawls across 6,000 acres of rural Philipsburg, Montana, busy during long days that bleed into comfortable evenings. After spending a few hours in the saddle, the only thing better than finding a seat at the resort's Silver Dollar Saloon is a dip in the heated pool. Or enjoy a cold one in the jacuzzi and watch the stars come out. Accommodations for a maximum of 60 guests range from luxury tents on the bank of a creek to log cabins and plush rooms in the main lodge. [From $850 a night, off season; theranchatrockcreek.com]
