Stayed here after doing a few days at Yellowstone on a road trip. We booked the larger unit that is separate from the motel. It was great. Tv, kitchen, laundry etc. Felt like we were at home. The outdoor pool was a great treat for the kids and we were across the street from an alpaca farm which was fun. The breakfast is great as well. Lots of choices. Would highly recommend. Would stay here again.
We spent a week at the RVL Trapper Cabin and 3 nights at the main motel. Both experiences were delightful. The cabin & room were clean, the hosts accommodating and the setting stunning in the Madison River valley. You will be amazed at the beautifully abundant & colorful flowers that are meticulously maintained by the hosts. My husband took advantage of a fishing trip with one of the guides provided by Odell fly shop located on the premises. It was a last minute booking, but Ed was accommodating and made it happen. We plan to revisit the Rainbow Valley Lodge again next year and I would highly recommend a stay here if you’re in the Ennis area.
We loved this historic lodge located just outside of downtown Ennis, which was close to excellent fishing and just an hour from the West-Yellowstone entrance. Even though the lodge was about sixty years old, it has been very well cared for and the grounds and rooms meticulously maintained. They offer appealing, clean, quiet rooms with comfortable beds, a wonderful shower and plenty of room to move about. The owners offer guided fishing trips, and there is a heated swimming pool near the rooms. With just ten minutes driving distance to downtown restaurants and shopping, and very reasonable prices, this lodge is a winner.
Everything about the stay was superior. The room was spacious, clean, well appointed, well cared for and the beds comfortable. The setting was very pleasant, and the price was very reasonable. More than anything, the owners/hosts, Ed and Jeanne were very friendly and welcoming. Their reception area was a natural setting for guests to socialize. It was a fly shop on one side and a refreshment area on the other side, where a high quality continental breakfast was provided in the mornings. It’s a real quality operation.
It was our first trip away from home with a newborn and the cabin was warm and cozy enough that it went great! Check in/out was super easy and efficient and the rate was great for the cabin, would definitely make a point to stay here anytime I am in Ennis.
I booked a large group here and had a handful of last minute changes throughout the stay and Ed was BEYOND accommodating and so kind and helpful! All of our group loved the rooms and cabins and would recommend staying here again. Thank you for all your help!
Home away from home is how I feel at the RVL thanks to the proprietors' warm hospitality and the overall ambiance of the place. Everything is perfect, I can't think of anything I would change, except perhaps a firmer mattress (cuz I like it real firm).
A very old fashioned motels/ lodge where you park your car in front of your room. Pine walls and ceiling’s antler lamp, no frills and yet it’s everything we need. Clean and well cared for. $125/night. Money well spent The owners welcomed us. They’ve run this for 32 years.
We spent a weekend at this cabin and made it our home base to visit Yellowstone and Big Sky area. The cabin is nicely equipped for a comfortable stay. The setting is quiet and close to town with easy access. I would recommend for anyone looking to stay in the area for fishing, sightseeing, or just to explore the area.
Nice location in town and walking distance to the Madison. Ed is great host. Small Cabin with Washer, Dryer and galley kitchen. Clean and comfortable. Small outdoor deck with grill. Able to enjoy Ennis on foot. See you again.
