about the ranch

Our humble acreage just outside of Bozeman Montana is both a ranch with farm animals and a short-term rental named House On A Hill.  

Since the beginning of our name we have been collecting R-words.

One of those R-words is the word Respite: a short period of rest and relief. One definition adds ‘from something difficult’.

Both of us are pastor’s kids and have served as church planters, pastors, and worship leaders. R Creek has its roots in our desire to bless pastors and those in ministry with a place where they can experience some of that respite.

This is a peaceful place with plenty of opportunity to experience many other R-words besides rest and relax. Recreation is all around this area, and the experience of the Montana ‘Big Sky’ is in abundance as you overlook several mountain ranges. 


Guests at R Creek Family Ranch can come spend a day enjoying the ranch, the animals, nature, share a meal together, have a campfire. A chance for them to get away and a chance for us to get to know them.

Experience the beauty of our Ranch.

Family is part of our name because we love families.
