My wife and I recently stayed at the Gallatin River Lodge for our 1st wedding anniversary while in Bozeman. We had originally only had plans to eat here for dinner, but wanted to extend our stay. I had emailed the lodge at 11:30pm the night before our dinner reservation, inquiring if they had any rooms available. Promptly at 7:30 am, I was called by the manager Keith, informing me that they did in fact have rooms available. I was offered a room, and personal invitation to come fly fish their 2 or 3 miles private access to the Gallatin river. I immediately booked the room over the phone and awaited my arrival.
Upon arriving at the lodge, we were greeted by name as if we were family, or if we had been there before, even though it was our first time staying at GRL! As a former employee of a AAA 5 diamond resort, I certainly did not expect this level of sincere service in the middle of Montana. Boy, was I suprised. Keith the manager gave us a tour or the property, and lodge, showed us to our room, and even offered to carry up our bags.
The room was absolutely immaculate, flat screen tv, king bed, jacuzzi tub, and everything one could need in a room. Bed was comfortable, and the room had a "at home feeling."
Dinner was spectacular, with cocktails before. As an avid BBQ'er/griller, the chef's special smoked pork chop was one of the best I have ever had. The dining room was overlooking the trout pond and deer grazing in the field. We ended the evening with a fantastic creme brulee, and another fantastic cocktail, along with a walk along the property, to the gallatin river to fish the evening hatch while watching 2 fawn deer and several others graze near by.
We woke up feeling refreshed, and had a terrific breakfast overlooking the pond and field. I will definitely return, and recommend this lodge to all of my clients. Overall rating 5/5 stars. The staff and views made this an anniversary that will not soon be forgotten.
