This was a wonderful find for a first time visitor to Montana. I think this review is aimed more at the novice fisher or first time Montana Visitor. Location. The location is great and gives a rustic and country feel. It was much better than the local motels I saw. For me, I can stay in a Hampton Inn anywhere,... More

In our restaurant business we strive to remember that we are first and foremost in the relationship business - from that simple principle flows great things, such as a desire to live into the Golden Rule. Each of the people I met at GRL clearly have the same mindset. They seemed to go out of their way to be welcoming,... More

You don't have to be staying at the Gallatin River Lodge to enjoy its splendor. The restaurant is open to the public for dinner and Sunday brunches just call and make a reservation. It has the best service in the area, and it is a quiet atmosphere with a beautiful view for conversation. The food is local and the menu... 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.

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
