We have stayed at the Gallatin River Lodge for years and it never disappoints. The rooms are always clean and everything is kept up to a high standard. Even though it has been open for 16 years the hosts keep the rooms and public areas in immaculate condition. The new Manager PJ is doing a great job and makes guests... More

My husband and I decided to visit a state that neither of us had ever visited. The Chamber of Commerce needs to recommend every first time traveler to Montana should spend at least 1 night at the Lodge! Every single employee was genuinely friendly and could not have been more helpful or accommodative. We arrived a day early and they... More

My husband and I celebrated my birthday at the Lodge and everything was perfect. Our room was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. We were greeted by Chris at the door and every person after that was pleasant and helpful. Our dinner was exquisite. The evening was so wonderful we discussed making this an annual event.

This place is over the top incredible! Everything about our stay was comfortable and relaxing while still being very close to city activities in Bozeman (which is only a short 15 minute drive). Tremendous value in the quiet season and amenities that make this place a great choice for travelers on a budget when comparing prices of traditional hotels. Our... More

Gallatin River Lodge sits outside of Bozeman on a nice, secluded farm. It's not a luxury lodge but it's a good, simple place with AMAZING people and very good food. The rooms are spotless, the bed was comfortable and its was fun to wake up to the sound of cows welcoming the sunrise. We watched the the NCLS in the... More

This has to be one of the best finds for pure hospitality west of the Mississippi! One could not ask for a more natural setting, a beautiful facility, great hospitality, wonderful locally sourced food, great brown liquor (Whistle Pig Rye), great wine (Biale Black Chicken Zinfandel and J. Christopher Pinot Noir) and the blue Big Sky of Montana. My wife... More

We got married at this gorgeous place in 2004. Since that time, it has only continued to improve! It was fantastic then, but it's out of this world now! The food is amazing, the ambiance is spectacular, and you can't get better service in the Gallatin Valley. We stay for the winter romance package- a great deal! They have amazing... More

We live in Hamilton, MT and our little town became overwhelmed by the smoke from surrounding Forrest fires. I had to escape and Bozeman had the best air. I called this Inn on a Monday morning and they were ready for me and my lovable Labradore by the time we arrived 5 hrs later. This is an amazingly beautiful spot,... More

The staff here go above and beyond to make your stay a delight. Rooms are large and sunny with all the amenities. Sheets are luxurious-gotta find those. It is located about 12 miles West of Bozeman so not in the thick of college life which is nice. Quiet. Great contacts for float fishing or you can take your fly rod... More
