Fodor's Review

Just a short drive north of Whitefish, this working dude ranch, nestled between two pine-covered ridges at the base of Spencer Mountain, 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's unlimited hiking, 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.
