Triple Creek Ranch Voted World's Best Hotel by Travel + Leisure

Legendary Triple Creek Ranch, a small resort in the Bitterroot Mountain range of the Rockies, has been named the World's Best Hotel in the Travel + Leisure 2014 World's Best Awards.

Triple Creek Ranch's number one ranking was evaluated by the readers of Travel + Leisure in the annual poll that scores hotels based on rooms, location, service, food, and value. Competition for this top spot included all of the most highly regarded hotels and flagship brands in hospitality.

Set against a vast backdrop of four million acres of National Forest, Triple Creek Ranch guests enjoy hiking, cattle drives, guided wildlife outings, panning for sapphires, horseback riding along the Lewis and Clark Trail, Orvis-endorsed fly fishing, dog sledding with a 12-time Iditarod Race finisher, or simply relaxing by the fireplace.

Triple Creek Ranch offers an authentic Western experience, where a day spent outdoors in nature is followed by relaxed gatherings under soaring timbers at the lodge and dinner prepared by Executive Chef Jacob Leatherman, who recently cooked for a sellout crowd at New York's James Beard Foundation.

Nestled under Ponderosa pines, each of Triple Creek's 23 log cabins are appointed with wood burning fireplaces and private or nearby hot tubs. Original Western art from the owners private collection can be found in the cabins and throughout the property.

"This prestigious endorsement from well-traveled, discriminating readers confirms our belief that today's sophisticated traveler is looking for active getaways offering upscale accommodations and thoughtful food in inspiring places," says Barbara Barrett, who owns the ranch with her husband Craig Barrett. "We don't feel like we own Triple Creek Ranch. We believe we have temporary custody of a national gem with the responsibility to conserve, improve and appreciate it."

Triple Creek Ranch is an all-inclusive mountain retreat for adults and children sixteen years and older. A member of Relais & Châteaux and Virtuoso, rates start at $950 per couple, per night, based on double occupancy and include a private cabin, all meals, house wine and spirits, and most activities.
