A great Western vacation for all ages is what the Bar W Guest Ranch on Spencer Lake in Whitefish is all about. The Bar W is open year-round and ready to treat you with true Western Montana hospitality—from the moment you arrive until long after you have left. Beautiful vistas and rolling ridges adorn the countryside of this cozy Montana dude ranch. Located on Spencer Lake, where there are 3,000 acres available for horseback riding and all kinds of outdoor activities.

The Bar W is nestled at the base of Spencer Mountain between two pine-covered ridges. The ranch consists of a lodge, cabin suites, indoor and outdoor horseback riding arenas, stables, a barn, play meadow, an entertainment area and a gazebo on the lake—all helping to make the Bar W an idyllic piece of paradise for our guests to soak in all year long.
