The Ranch at Rock Creek is an all inclusive guest ranch nestled in one of Montana's most pristine valleys. The Ranch at Rock Creek offers year-round unique vacations on an authentic 19th century homestead. It has been recognized as the World's only Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Guest Ranch. As a Relais & Châteaux property, we've spent the last six years expanding the frontiers of luxury travel with our one of a kind accommodations, extensive amenities, inventive cuisine and access to over 35 guided outdoor activities on the ranch.

Set among 6,600 acres (10 square miles) of rugged Montana ranchland just outside Philipsburg, MT, guests experience limitless outdoor recreational opportunities, outstanding accommodations and cuisine, and a renowned full-service spa. Families, couples, and friends will discover that The Ranch at Rock Creek is unparalleled among Montana vacation ranches. It's a place that offers the feel of the ‘true West’ without sacrificing true comfort.

Our employees come not only from Montana, but from all across the United States, Europe, and Asia. Meeting new people, creating custom guest experiences, trying new activities, and taking advantage of all The Ranch and the local community has to offer is part of a typical employee experience.

The Ranch is located in a very remote area, and those seeking the hustle and bustle of city life should not look here. Successful employees enjoy the rural beauty of the area and the outdoor activities it provides. Candidates should have a strong luxury hospitality mindset. Our most successful employees are those who are self-motivated, confident, good at multi-tasking and creating special connections, and who, above all, show impeccable work ethic.  A love of the outdoors and an adventuresome spirit are crucial. The desire to work as a team and go above and beyond the call of duty when necessary is what makes our Ranch so special. 

The Ranch at Rock Creek staff enjoys Montana at its finest. There is exceptional access to hiking, camping, and backpacking in the Anaconda-Pintler Wilderness. There are plenty of chances to try new hobbies, such as horseback riding, archery, ice skating or sapphire mining. Southwest Montana is an excellent place for budding photographers, who will see some of the most diverse wildlife in the United States.

In addition, staff members will find themselves steps away from Rock Creek, one of the world’s only Blue Ribbon trout streams. More fishing access is enjoyed on Flint Creek and Georgetown Lake. If you love to fly fish, there is almost no better place in the world to spend a season. Just 25 minutes away, Disovery Ski Area is an alpine skiing destination that becomes a mountain biking mecca in the summer.
