Bar W Guest Ranch Review

Just a short drive north of Whitefish, the Bar W is a playground for horse people and outdoor-recreation enthusiasts. You can ride the nearby trails or in the indoor arena, watch trainers work with horses, or take lessons yourself. There are also unlimited hiking opportunities, and there's fishing in nearby Spencer Lake, skeet shooting, archery, and more. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a distinct Western flair. The cabin overlooks pasture and the nearby woods, and it's not uncommon to sit on the deck and watch deer and other wildlife.
