We did not stay here but I wanted to mention how nice the owners are. We saw on their sign fly fishing so we stopped in for details. They booked a float trip for us and made Sure everything went smoothly. We are traveling in a motorhome but if I needed a room in this beautiful area I would definitely... More

This is our second year in a row at this very special place. Rooms are clean, comfortable and very reasonably priced. Besides rooms they have fishing guide service and a fully stocked fly shop on site. Rooms are a reflection of what you would expect and want to stay in when your in Montana. This place and grounds are well... More

This was a great little lodge and the owners were super. Ed helped me out finding local places to fish and flies to use. I spent 2 days fishing the nearby O'Dell Creek which was tough but very rewarding and enjoyable fishing. I will be back to stay, fish, do O'Dell and maybe get a guide to do a float... More

We love small family run hotels and lucked in by picking up a day-of cancellation by another traveler. The Rainbow Valley Lodge owners are helpful, friendly and went out of their way to get our kids hooked up at the local fishing pond. Rooms are large, clean, lovingly appointed, and relaxing. Join the fishing guides in the lobby/lounge for breakfast... More

Having travel here before I was comfortable making another trip back. Still the greatest selection of flowers blooming all over the place. The hosts were as usual friendly and helpful making us feel at home. From the number of repeat guests others obviously feel the same as I do. Can't wait to come visit again.

Let me start off by saying if you are a fly fisherman it would be a 5 star stay. The room we stayed in was extremely comfortable. We stayed in room 12 with the kitchenette. My wife and I were on a vacation with our grandson and nephew. The boys loved the heated pool and having a room seperated from... More

Great hotel in beautiful Ennis, MT! Ed and Jeanne are so welcoming and friendly. The rooms are spotless, cozy, and very spacious. Close to the Madison River and Ennis. Highly recommend and hope to stay again when we return to the Madison Valley.

We took room 24, at others suggestion, the view is wonderful of the mountains. The room is clean, spacious, and the hosts, VERY friendly. Over all, a great stay! We did not fish the Madison, and were just touring the history of the local mining towns. Good Coffee and AMAZING GIANT donuts were among the breakfast offering in the lodge.... More

Ed and jeane are very open and nice. This is the perfect lodge for your fishing experience ennis. Ed will organize a guide. I had Braden and he was great. Really knows the Madison and we fought good fish. Both browns an rainbows. Lodge is straight forward, clean and well organized. No better place in ennis I am sure.
