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

This has long been one of my favorite places to stay. This lodge has been a part of Ennis for forty years that I'm aware of, and likely much longer. It has grown and is a beautiful motel in a park-like atmosphere. It's simple but very clean. Rooms are large, beds are comfortable. Interiors are knotty pine and the exterior... More

Nice clean hotel and very nice owners. I love the log decor and you cannot beat the view. The place is small but the they make good use of what they have. A nice touch is the coffee and rolls in the morning, I was not expecting that. A nice little fly shop is onsite and a guide is available.... More

We stayed at the Rainbow Valley Lodge on our way home from Yellowstone. The place is beautiful from the outside. A lovely deck with chairs & colorful flowers everywhere. The log features inside are lovely as well. While the room was very clean, that's about the only thing going for it. The biggest drawback for us was NO AIR CONDITIONING!... More

So refreshing to stay at this clean non-brand name motel. Great place to make lasting memories for kids, dt hotel chain experiences all blurring together in our minds. You will make a lasting memory here. Be advised of no air conditioning which usually is not a problem.
