Today’s post is purely for aesthetic delight – with a western slant.

Here you see an authentic 19th century barn near Philipsburg, Montana that has been repurposed into an incredible living space.

But it is not a private residence, no sir. It is offered up as “glamping” accommodations for the discerning western wanna-be.

      Glamping: (noun)

A form of camping in which participants enjoy physical comforts associated with more luxurious types of holiday

Which kind of defeats the purpose of camping and being close to nature.

Not that I’m dissing the practice of glamping.

Heck, I’d glamp! You bet I would – with a bathtub like that!

This barn & hayloft remodel are part of a larger guest ranch in western Montana.

The Ranch at Rock Creek was originally a mining claim in the late 1800s. Somewhere around the turn of the century, The Ranch was homesteaded by W.W. Shaffer and P.W. White and has been operated continuously since then as a working cattle ranch.

The current owner purchased the property in 2007 after a long search for the “perfect” ranch.

And this place is near perfect in its rustic appeal, indoor plumbing, and soft, plump beds.
