This is an amazing place! Bears and views and wild trees and superb food prepared by a friendly couple that you can just tell love the area. If you want to be on vacation, this is a definite place to visit.

If you enjoy being in the quietness of beautiful mountains, this is the place to be. Mountain lakes are close and the view is amazing! Relaxation at its finest. The lodge is well equipped for those that love to enjoy good food with good company. Definitely would visit again.

Wonderful hosts, ultimate seclusion. The surrounding forest invites exploration and offers an alpine lake on the lodge property. World class biking with MANY miles of forest roads and single track trails. We rode for two days and saw only Montana wildlife. At the lodge expect very comfortable beds, a hot shower with fantastic views and great food. Retire to the...

Just spent summer weekend hiking biking watching sunsets and sitting by the fire. Wow! Take a shower while enjoying a 120 mile view, eat great food and relax! Sit on the deck...long easy hikes or short easy hikes or hard hikes. Same for bike rides. Every type of recreation or just pure quiet relaxation

This is a fantastic location/vacation cabin. The views are amazing, and Denison is extremely friendly and accommodating (and a fine cook). Access is a beautiful 2 hour ski in in the winter time, or you can drive up in the summer. Once there, you have all the rustic charms you would expect of the best "off the grid" lodges, including...

Starting with the turn off the highway into Maxville, this is an authentic Montana experience. A few more miles up a dirt road, a few more on skins, and the lodge pops out of the trees below Birthday Ridge. Great views into the Bitterroots to the west and Pintlers in the south. All the ebullience about sunsets on the website...

Went to Altoona for an Avalanche class and was blown away by the lodge, and lodge hosts. Food, Beds, Sauna, Yurt, Views, Skiing and Sunsets area all spectacular! Would recommend having Dennison and Eric cook for you! They are pros and not to mention fun to hang out with!

Altoona staff is extremely friendly and makes your experience very easy. We chose a winter trip with an avalanche course included. The lodge offers basic bunks and a couple beds, which are surprisingly comfortable and clean. There is plenty of heat with the included wood burning stoves. The view from the outhouse is outstanding. No shower in the winter (but...

Just spent three days at Altoona Ridge Lodge. Did a training course there but cant wait to return to just play and relax. The Lodge is cozy but with lots of room. The sauna is a wonderful option after a day of skiing. BUT what is really unbelievable is the view. You can see several mountain ranges more than a...

We had a wonderful birthday getaway at the Altoona Ridge Lodge! Denison and Drea are so sweet and hospitable. We loved exploring the majestic Flint Creek mountains on both fat and skinny skis, reading on the cozy couch next to the wood burning stove, gazing at constellations in the dark sky, doing yoga in the lodge over looking stellar views...
