Focus on mind and body wellness at Granite Spa, offering wild-inspired treatments incorporating the deep connection with the Montana land. Also expect exquisite dining options as the culinary team masters ranch-to-table cuisine.
And Do Good: While sustainability has been central to The Ranch at Rock Creek since opening, this exquisite ranch is also doing so much good in its local community. The Ranch is committed to serving the Granite County community and surrounding area through its support of local organizations and events that improve the lives of our fellow citizens. In addition, Granite County, a frontier county with fewer than two people per square mile, lacks efficient emergency medical services, The Ranch at Rock Creek is helping by getting more EMTs to respond to emergencies by hosting EMT classes in the fall and winter.
When General Manager Jon Martin and his wife Brenda came to Philipsburg in early 2018, there were no childcare options for their two young girls. A parent staying at home was a change the Martin family was able to make, but they soon saw that other employee families and single-parent households needed more childcare options to maintain their careers and provide for their families. In 2019, they opened The Nest on-site childcare. Ranch employees pay $25 per day for the first child and $15 per day for the second, which covers a portion of the expense for this program. The remainder is covered by The Ranch as a benefit to employees.
