This place is wonderful. The location is great, just 5 minutes south of Ennis. They have the most beautiful pots of flowers outside of each room. The room was very clean. We had a room with a patio and a view of the mountains. Would stay here again. The pharmacy in Ennis offers a great breakfast..

Was referred here after the other place was filled up. They had a room which we were happy to take. Close to the pool and spotlessly clean. Plenty of room and there was a kitchenette as well as porch to relax and enjoy. It is close to the highway but we slept solid - very little noise. The breakfast left... More

Ive been travelling to Ennis for almost 45 years and the Rainbow Valley always fits my needs in between days fishing the Madison. Great hosts in Ed and Keanie Williams. Fly shop, continental breakfast and Outfitting available. Super clean and very well priced. Thanks again for another great stay!

Our 2 cabins for 6 people worked well with a queen bed in the main room and one in a separate bedroom. Plugs are limited. The heated pool was enjoyed by the kids. Only concern was lack of AC. Grounds are nice with outdoor seating and lots of flowers. Owners were pleasant.

This is where I stay whenever I get out to Ennis. Beautiful setting, neat and clean rooms, and Ed and Jeanne are wonderful hosts! The hotel is also conveniently located just at the south end of town. I'm headed back in July.

My son and I stayed here for 2 nights on a road trip through Montana. The rooms are very large but cozy and spotlessly clean. Beautiful flowers and beautiful views from our room. Excellent location close to the small town of Ennis.

RVL makes no pretense of being a luxury hotel. It does what it does exceptionally well. RVL fills up in fishing season with trout hunters eager to enjoy the nearby Madison River and Odell Creek. And it earns its popularity with warm welcomes, good breakfasts, and squeaky-clean rooms. Our pine-paneled two-room suite included a small kitchen area, completely equipped for... More

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
