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. A complementary, order from the menu, outstanding breakfast! The only thing better than the breakfast is the dinner! A must try, as an appetizer, is... More

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

This small cozy hotel is a delight. It is the cleanest hotel I have ever visited. Very comfy bed, beautiful views and a wonderful restaurant. The staff is super accommodating. We slept late and missed the complimentary breakfast by 30 minutes. I called down and the young woman in the kitchen said, " oh, sure come on down I have... More

We were lucky enough to stay at the GRL for 3 nights, and we didn't want to leave. The lodge is a few minutes outside Bozeman, which makes it very quiet/ relaxing. The rooms were incredibly clean and didn't have the typical "hotel room" smell. We had a fireplace and jacuzzi tub, which were a lovely touch. Everything was well... More

We stay here almost every year for our anniversary, and we love everything about it. The location feels like a perfect country getaway, but it's conveniently close to town. The views are beautiful with frequent deer and eagle sightings. The beds are comfortable, and the jacuzzi tub and fireplace add a nice romantic touch. (We stay upstairs.) The chef cooks... More

I cannot think of one thing to object about this hotel. Quiet location close to town, huge rooms, gorgeous views, gourmet food, and excellent service. We have stayed at many upscale hotels and this was one of the best. We will be back, perhaps next time for fishing!

We were only here one night on our way to Washington. I certainly wanted to stay longer. GRL is situated in open Montana area that just exudes peace, quiet and relaxation. Our room was well appointed and I'd come back just for the linens alone, they were so amazingly soft. We dined at the restaurant, and had a full-service breakfast... More

My husband and I stayed here to visit our son at MSU and yes there are closer places to stay ( this is about 15 minutes from campus) but well worth it. The rooms are large with a fireplace, soaking tub and a comfortable bed. It was nice to have 6 pillows in the room without having to ask and... More

Spent a lovely evening celebrating a special event. The food was delicious, as were the drinks. Unlike other places in Bozeman, we were not just bodies to be rushed out in order to seat the next persons. I would highly recommend this hidden gem.
