My husband and I took a side trip on our way through Montana to stay at the Gallatin River Lodge. Glad that we did. Lovely setting- quiet, peaceful and nothing like waking up to the songs of birds. Our second floor room faced the water, meadows and views of the distant Mountains. It was spacious, very clean and comfortable. We... More

I have to give Gallatin a five star for their location and food. Food presentation and taste is like going into a fancy restaurant and location is tucked away from the crowd of hotels and street. This is a small boutique feel with about 9 rooms. They serve only breakfast and dinner. Like the rustic decor, hate the noisy patrons... More

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
