5 Swanky Dude Ranches Perfect for a Girls Getaway
We love so many things about a good old dude ranch: big skies, expansive ranges, worn cowboy boots, wide-brimmed Stetsons, chili recipes slowly cooked in cast iron pots and lots of horses. The dude ranch is a symbol of true cowboy (or cowgirl) culture, an Americana escape perfect for you and your besties. We’re talking about the kind of ranch with perks like spa treatments, scrumptious cuisine, wine tastings and mares ready to be ridden into the sunset. Here are five swanky, yet still wonderfully rustic, dude ranches to saddle up to.
1. The Ranch at Rock Creek, Philipsburg, Montana: Entering into one of the old-timey buildings at the Ranch at Rock Creek will make you feel like you walked back in time (or stepped right into a Ralph Lauren catalog). They sprinkle the day with seductive touches, like the lure of artisan cocktails with hors d’oeuvres each night in the Great Room. The ranch also has a Silver Dollar Saloon that is “equal parts cowboy saloon and luxe club,” which includes a four-lane bowling alley and a private movie theater.
