Triple Creek Ranch

The best hotel in the world isn’t in New York or Paris, Singapore or Hong Kong. According to readers of Travel + Leisure, that title belongs to Triple Creek Ranch in Montana, where guests sleep under the stars in log cabins.

While it may not be a world-recognized name, the ranch is a member of Relais & Chateaux, an international association of luxury properties made up of historic landmarks, castles and manors, often in bucolic areas in the world.

The typical Triple Creek Ranch guest, meanwhile, books a stay in search of nature and the return to simplicity.

Its impressive placement on the list may also signal a growing desire among travelers for unplugged, nature-centric vacations, editors said.

Triple Creek Ranch Cabin

The site features 23 log cabins across 600 acres, against the backdrop of the Montana Rockies. Each cabin comes with a wood-burning fireplace, hot tub, and the property also offers wine tastings, a chef’s table and helicopter tours of the area.
