Sleeping and meals

The Bar W offers blended elegance with Western informality. The main lodge is 6,200 square feet with 6 bedrooms, 3 common spaces, game parlor, and hot tub. Each of the lodge rooms is unique in size and amenities. For a more rustic ambiance look no further than our cabin suite. Each suite offers a private deck, kitchenette and views of our horse pasture and often visiting wildlife! For a unique experience consider "Glamping" or glamorous camping. Glamping offers the best of both worlds, wall tents are beautifully appointed with queen size beds, kitchenettes,and private porch. Just a few steps away is your private bathroom! Believe us when we say, you will never think of camping the same way!

Wait until you sit down to some of the best down-home cooking this side of the Mississippi-Montana style! Meals are prepared with love and care and are always in hearty portions-no one leaves hungry! Meals are served family style and sometimes out on the trail! We are happy to accommodate special dietary needs with advanced notice.
