Working Ranch with Comfortable Cabins near Glacier National Park

There’s a sweeping view of the Montana countryside at the top of Gratitude Peak, located on the eastern side of Gaynor Ranch and Resort. But before guests can enjoy the sights, they must follow a strict but simple rule: all of their worries must be left down below at the Gratitude Tree. Perched atop this overlook is a Native American medicine wheel designed by ranch owner Nancy Gaynor, a Kootenai tribe member. The wheel is said to inspire meditation and self-reflection. This overlook underscores the resort’s focus on relaxation and reverence for the area’s natural beauty, set amid forested hills and wide blue skies. From here, you’re only a short drive from Glacier National Park and the slopes at Whitefish Mountain Resort.

Touches of the old West, including a weathered wagon and a large white tepee, are scattered throughout the working ranch. Guests can take an active part in the surroundings via fishing trips, river floats, and horseback or wagon rides along the many trails.

Near the horse pasture stands a cluster of cabins, each of them spacious enough for groups and equipped with a full kitchen. For more secluded accommodations, choose one of the eight freestanding Cabins in the Woods, located a short distance from the ranch. While you’re at the resort, you might see some of the ranch’s canine companions, who help protect the property from local wildlife.

Whitefish, Montana: Charming Alpine Gateway to Glacier National Park

Gaynor Ranch and Resort is tucked into the Flathead Valley, an expanse of jagged peaks and windswept lowlands carved out by glaciers during the last ice age. Within the valley—and fewer than 7 miles from the resort—is the charming alpine village of Whitefish. Restaurants, specialty boutiques, and a microbrewery sit along the main drag of Central Avenue, with the Northern Rocky Mountains jutting out of the skyline to the north. Though outdoor activities are a major draw, Whitefish also features an independent theater company, art galleries, a historical museum, and a Frank Lloyd Wright–designed building—one of a scant few in Montana.

About 30 miles away from the ranch is the west entrance to Glacier National Park, where Lake McDonald comes into view as visitors drive down Going-to-the-Sun Road. During warmer months, you can see a variety of wildflowers and rare orchids along the park's many hiking trails. Keep an eye out for bighorn sheep, which are among the area's indigenous wildlife.
