Even if you are not a flyfisher stay here anyway. It isn't a fancy resort but it does have everything I needed and you won't find a more colorful place with the multitude of flowers. At around $100 a night you feel like you got a sweet deal too. The continental breakfast was better than I expected and was enough to last until lunch. No complaints from me other than the trout in Odell Creek had horrible aim or just like playing with anglers that are not on top of their game. I missed 15 in a row, a couple of which were quite large. At $60 a day I thought the creek was one of the prettiest places I have ever fished and well worth the price of admission. Hope it always stays private.

The Rainbow Valley Lodge is located just east of the town of Ennis, Mt. in the middle of the trout nirvana of the Madison River. The owners, Ed and Jeannie Williams are what make the RBV special. They are great hosts and genuine people. The rooms are spacious and clean. The rates are reasonable and there is a continental breakfast and a fly shop. We stay there each year because it is the best accomodations in southwest Montana.

I love family-run motels and this one was lovely. We had a room with private patio. Cost a bit more as there was a kitchen with the room but so worth it. The regular rooms face the parking lot and you can sit outside those too and enjoy fresh air, but I love solitude & privacy when I creep out with my first cup of coffee or that evening glass of wine. We even saw llamas in a nearby field. The owners were delightful and even though they had coffee in the lobby each morning, they delivered a full size pot to our room when I told them how important that was to me! Even in Montana some of us don’t want to be seen early in the morning-heck I even take 14 mile hikes with mascara in place! Gift shop area was fun with nice shirt selection and all those flies too. Place was just outside of town. Loved it. Recommend it!! Be aware though that use of masks and social distancing was NOT happening here or in many small towns in Montana.....

My wife and I stayed in the Moore's Creek Hideaway for four days last month on a fishing trip. Location was great, walk to town takes 2 minutes. Very nice 1 bedroom cabin with living room, kitchen (and utensils) and living/TV room. Plenty of space for our exploding stash of fishing gear. Ed and Jeanne were wonderful. Ed arranged our fishing excursions. His guides were great. Weather was terrible, unless you like freezing cold, howling winds, and torrential rain with a lightning strike for desert. we definitely will be return customers. French fries at the Gravel Bar are KILLER.

Ed and Jeanie are wonderful host, they make you feel like you are home. They brought in Cory to provide music to all the guests with a great meal. The accommodations are very welcoming and the staff are great people. River Borne Outfitters are great to fish with as well.
