Magnificent location and very comfortable. The owners will make you feel at home in this cozy fishing lodge just outside the town if Ennis and close enough to Yellowstone, Virginia City and the Lewis & Clark Caverns to make them day trips. We had a great time!

There's really nothing wrong with this 24 unit lodge on the outskirts of Ennis, Montana. We found it as we were headed to Yellowstone National Park and were worried about finding a place to stay as the day grew later. We know that Yellowstone lodging can be dicey in mid-summer, so we turned around after having passed the lodge the... More

My wife and I spent Christmas holiday week at the Rainbow Valley Lodge. We were the only guests at the lodge for the first few days of our visit. We are working with the local realtors in an attempt to move to Ennis. During our stay, the Lodge hosts, Ed & Jeanne went out of their way to make it... More

Whether you are vacationing, fishing, hunting, or on your way to or from Yellowstone, there is a lot to love here in this small, personal, log cabin style motel. Maybe most of all, Ed & Jeanne, who make you feel like you are their house guests. The accommodations are quiet, comfortable, very clean, and best of all... charming. Those with... More

We have stayed here for 20 years and we keep coming back every hunting season. The owners (Ed and Jeanne) are the nicest people you'll meet. They work hard to make your stay perfect. Rooms are quaint and comfortable. Some have kitchens and prices are great. If you need to land in Ennis, MT, this is the place to stay!

After visiting RVL in 2011 and having a great trip, it was only natural to stay there again. Ed and Jean Williams do a fabulous job of making you feel at home with beautifully clean rooms and a friendly home-like atomosphere. If you are looking to fish the Madison River, this is the only place to go.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights to get some fishing in on the Madison. Our stay was great. The rooms was clean and very quiet. The entire lodge was just wonderful and had everything we needed. We recommend the lodge to anyone staying in Ennis!

This is a fine little hotel in a beautiful part of the world. Only drawback is the lack of AC, but for most times of the year, that wouldn't be an issue ... and the property is otherwise top-notch. Good customer service, coffee and muffins in the office in the morning (and when we were there, on a group bike... More
