A wonderful place to stay and great experience. The rooms are clean, spacious, and rustic. We loved the knotty pine! We'll definitely be back for another visit in the future and highly recommend to anyone looking for a lil slice of Heaven in this beautiful Paradise!

Besides being clean, comfortable, charming, great value and good blueberry muffins the host/owners are terrific. They and the staff can't do enough for you.Fishing the Madison was made that much better by our stay at Rainbow Valley Lodge.

We have stayed here for several years, no complaints! Going again in 2015:) The flowers are really beautiful. Folks are very friendly and helpful. It's quiet and restful and Yellowstone is a day trip away.

I just returned home from the most rewarding fishing trip of my life...and I have two people to thank for that...Ed and Jeanne Williams. The owners of the hotel who treat you like family. They are always there if you need something....they make sure your needs are met...and they just know howto make your stay memorable. The rooms are clean...comfortable... More

We had a float trip on the Madison and decided to stay in Ennis. Because of a last minute booking, we could not stay in the main lodge. Instead we stayed in one of their two bedroom houses down the street. It was large and well equipped, but for two it was too big. Next time we will request the... More

RVL continues to be one of my favorite places to stay in the West. Ed and Jean run a fabulous lodge with spotlessly clean rooms, a great continental-style breakfast in the a.m., and all with a clientele that is friendly and very pro-fishing. Conveniently located on Route 287, about an hour from Yellowstone Park and about an hour from the... More

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
