  • Right on Yellowstone River

    Do you want a quiet cabin right on the Yellowstone River that has a restaurant with a fantastic chef then this is the place for you. Want to fish? They have the best guides.

  • Breathtaking

    The lodge was breathtaking. The restaurant exquisite, we ate there 3 times. Being in the restaurant business myself I'm not an easy person to please in that category, if I could give them more stars I would. We were also set up with a fly fishing guide for one day, it was awesome, and I don't fish. This trip was nothing short of a luxury vacation, complete with outdoor adventure.

  • Best Place to Stay in Montana

    The view of the river was gorgeous and I read each night on the deck overlooking the river until dark. It was AWESOME to be able to book this place with our fly fishing as a package. We didn’t have to worry about anything while staying here. On top of all that, the dinners were the best I have ever had. I would say it has better food and service than a 5-star restaurant in a big city. The service was also bar none, everyone was very attentive to all of our needs and work great as a team. No doubt the best place to stay in Montana.
