Ed and Jeanne take great care in making sure you have a stay to remember, a clean environment, and a very comfortable room. It doesn't matter what time of the year you visit, you'll have a great time and feel right at home. The property is immaculate, the breakfast in the morning is just right, and your host and hostess... More

This hotel is located a short distance outside the town of Ennis, Montana along the main Highway. This is a great fishing area, but my sisters and I did not come to fish. We wanted to spend some time at the nearby Ghost towns. Although Ennis is small, it has all the amenities that you could want, a little walk... More

We were involved in an event that ended in West Yellowstone, but the rooms there were on average over $200 per night. Since my wife wanted to visit Virginia City while we were in that area, I looked for a place in Ennis. I found the Rainbow Valley Lodge. For well less than half the price of an average room... More

This place is a gem. My wife and I stayed here in August 2014 for four nights. Room was good size and comfortable. The owners (Ed and Jeannie) have been here for many years and have really created a family environment. This place is very clean inside the rooms and outside the rooms. Property is immaculate surrounded by green grass... More

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

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
