We held our rehearsal dinner at Rainbow Ranch a few years ago and we, along with all of our guests, LOVED it (the only reason we didn't get married there was because it was already taken!). We celebrated our anniversary this September and stayed in Ermine, a beautiful, rustic, but luxurious suite with fireplaces everywhere! Just to make the welcome... More

Spent four days here in early august. Appreciated the ways the lodge has manage to muffle the sound of the highway with running water everywhere. Stayed in the Osprey Suite which was spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately on arrival we noticed that house keeping had failed to clean the floor well - a previous guest must have spilled a soda on... More

Eagle Mount Bozeman brought a group of women wounded warriors to the Big Sky area this last week of August and were nothing but satisfied with our stay. The staff and accommodations were first class and they GRACIOUSLY donated our weeks stay. We had our own private cabin with 2 rooms for staff. This worked out fabulously and couldn't have... More

My husband, 3 yr old daughter and I stayed at Rainbow Ranch for a wedding. The staff was incredibly helpful and accommodating!! The rooms couldn't have been better. We were surprised that our room was actually a suite and was perfect for our family. Not to mention the bathrooms were stocked with Molton Brown (my absolutely favorite!!!!). The staff was... More

Our family stayed a week here as a base for day trips to Yellowstone National Park, fly fishing and rafting. The staff was cheerful and very helpful in directing us to attractions and restaurants. The restaurant was expensive but the food was excellent. Breakfast is included in the room rate and was delicious. The property is maintained beautifully. We would... More

My daughter was married at the Rainbow Ranch Lodge on July 12, 2014 and I cannot praise the staff enough for providing her and our guests with a beautiful venue, a reception menu fit for foodies and outstanding service. If we asked it was done. Mollie and her staff know how to manage all the details involved in an out... More

Our oldest son got married here at the end of May. Everything about the trip was absolutely wonderful! I will have to let my son and his wife review the wedding planning services because they had the most contact with the staff, but from my perspective, the staff did an excellent job. The bride and groom were very pleased as... More

The staff was always helpful and friendly. The Moose room was sizable with two rooms connected by bath & closet; private, yet conversational between them. The grounds hosts a pond, outdoor kitchen, covered patio and a fabulous, LARGE hot tub. The breakfast was terrific and their pastry chef is awesome! Our dinner was halibut, a wonderful fish, large portion, just... More

The staff were friendly and helpful. In fact, they recommended a local hike to the Lava lake that was extraordinarily beautiful. Although the lodge is situated a little too close to the 191 highway, all of the rooms face a pretty pond and the roaring Gallatin River which makes up for the occasional noise of cars rolling by. Our room... More
