This was a wonderful find for a first time visitor to Montana. I think this review is aimed more at the novice fisher or first time Montana Visitor. Location. The location is great and gives a rustic and country feel. It was much better than the local motels I saw. For me, I can stay in a Hampton Inn anywhere,...

In our restaurant business we strive to remember that we are first and foremost in the relationship business - from that simple principle flows great things, such as a desire to live into the Golden Rule. Each of the people I met at GRL clearly have the same mindset. They seemed to go out of their way to be welcoming,...

You don't have to be staying at the Gallatin River Lodge to enjoy its splendor. The restaurant is open to the public for dinner and Sunday brunches just call and make a reservation. It has the best service in the area, and it is a quiet atmosphere with a beautiful view for conversation. The food is local and the menu...

We recently spent a week in Yellowstone and needed to spend our last night in Bozeman prior to an early departure from the airport.

Stayed here night of January 24,2015. Great room, excellant food. But perhaps the best part was our treatment by the owners, Steve and Cindy and their staff. Only regret - we could not stay an additional night.

We stayed and also had dinner here with friends for my husband's and my birthday. We have always enjoyed dinner here and have stayed stayed several times in the original lodge. I have to say that the new addition for dining and accommodations are even better! This place is great for a quick "vacation" from the stresses of life.

We can not say enough about how wonderful our experience was at the Galletin River Lodge. The rooms were first rate. During our stay we enjoyed a wonderful dining experience in their restaurant. When you include the wildlife viewing, Steve, Cindy, and PJ; why would you stay anywhere else? A perfect experience. Rocky and Helen, North Carolina

I stayed in this place as part of a small group trip organized by TAUCK.com, in the dead of winter.

Not only was I accommodated in a way I very...
