Who can resist the charm of sleeping on the banks of an historic river? Add the view of fresh snow on the Absaroka mountains in the distance, and it's a Kodak moment. With exemplary service, this Lodge knows its niche as an upscale fly-fishing retreat. Alas, we are not fishermen, but were still satisfied with a location that allowed several unique drives on backcountry roads, plus an interview with a potential pack-trip outfitter who is permitted in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness and YNP. Our well-maintained room was a cut above average, but easily hearing the people adjoining us was a downer. (We used the fan to mask the noise.) The restaurant takes pride in its impressive cuisine - my husband couldn't believe that fishermen ate that highfalutin! If you like watching rivers with a story to tell, check out the Grand Union Hotel in Fort Benton, MT, on the banks of the Missouri River.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We're a small, off-the-beaten-path collection of contemporary cabins and one exceptional five-star gourmet restaurant, tucked along the banks of the Yellowstone River on a ranch style property in the Paradise Valley of Montana. Our passions: Falling asleep to the sound of the river (we've also got a weak spot for high-count linens, fly-fishing, and microbrews—you'll see.), anything locally grown (if Chef Marcos prepares it, it's good) and showing off Yellowstone National Park (and the Valley's other endless outdoor opportunities). With our local knowledge, upscale amenities, and taste for both fine food and outdoor adventure, we're a natural base for your Yellowstone-area experience. ... more less
