Winter Wonderland

Philipsburg, Montana

Innkeepers Maja and Thomas Kilgore can't take credit for the pulse-quickening beauty of the remote Montana landscape. That speaks for itself: green meadows, alpine lakes, rushing creeks and mountains that look like chunks of Toblerone bars. But they do ensure that ranch guests enjoy a less-than-rustic rendezvous at their luxury resort version of an old-time Western ranch. With comfortable, upscale cabins and “glamping”-worthy family tents, the ranch has gourmet fare, a full-service spa and myriad activities to offset any possibility of boredom. In winter, ski, skate or take sleigh rides. In summer, hike, bike and fly-fish.
