GRL is or is close to our favorite restaurant for special evenings out. Saturday, March 21 was no exception. The evening started out well enough. We had a reservation for 7PM. We arrived with friends at 6 to enjoy a cocktail by the fireplace and view photos of our recent trip. At 7 it was time to move to the... More

We recently spent a week in Yellowstone and needed to spend our last night in Bozeman prior to an early departure from the airport. I chose the Gallatin River Lodge and it was so wonderful that we can't wait to go back as a destination! PJ and Steve couldn't have been more welcoming. The room was lovely, and we spent... More

Stayed here night of January 24,2015. Great room, excellant food. But perhaps the best part was our treatment by the owners, Steve and Cindy and their staff. Only regret - we could not stay an additional night.

We can not say enough about how wonderful our experience was at the Galletin River Lodge. The rooms were first rate. During our stay we enjoyed a wonderful dining experience in their restaurant. When you include the wildlife viewing, Steve, Cindy, and PJ; why would you stay anywhere else? A perfect experience. Rocky and Helen, North Carolina

We recently had the pleasure of staying two nights at the Gallatin River Lodge with a Tauck tour. The entire staff were outstanding, the meals excellent, and the rooms warm and charming. The owners and staff were very friendly and went way beyond expectations. The owners and manager made sure we got into Bozeman to see the Museum of the... More

I stayed in this place as part of a small group trip organized by TAUCK.com, in the dead of winter. A (fortuitous for me) change in logistics mandated that I be lodged for two nights at this inn; I arrived relatively unexpectedly there at 8pm. I stayed for two nights. Not only was I accommodated in a way I very... More

We ended up at this lodge as a back up to the lodge we were supposed to stay in that was not available. We were so lucky! This is an outstanding property in every way.

This was one of our top destinations on our 36 night, 8,740 mile road trip. I knew we would arrive after 7:00PM and asked if fresh trout was always available for dinner and if 2 orders could be held for us as this was our purpose for staying at the Lodge. Steve said he could not guarantee they would be... More
