GALLATIN RIVER LODGE

Gallatin River Lodge, Bozeman’s only boutique luxury hotel, restaurant, and fly-fishing outfitter, was awarded the Traveler’s Choice, Top 25 Small Hotels in the United States for 2017 by Trip Advisor.

Traveler’s Choice Awards are the highest honor Trip Advisor grants each year, as they include only the top 1 percent of all hotels. This award is based on reputation, reviews and opinions from millions of travelers.

“We feel fortunate to have a stunningly beautiful setting on the edge of Bozeman, incredibly talented staff that go above and beyond with every guest, and an amazing group of partners that provide us with the highest quality product possible,” said lodge manager PJ Wirchansky. “All of this with Yellowstone in our backyard is really amazing—we love to share our home with each of our guests at the Lodge, and are ecstatic about the recognition.”

Gallatin River Lodge is located on the west side of Bozeman, near the famed Gallatin River. The lodge has 12 rooms, including six suites in the main lodge, each with a Jacuzzi and fireplace, and six rooms in the new Trout Lodge, each with radiant floor heat, and tiled spa showers.

The lodge has a fine dining restaurant featuring farm-to-table cuisine, an extensive wine list, and a full bar. The menu features local product from Montana farmers, as well as fresh herbs and vegetables from the kitchen garden, just steps away from the restaurant. The patio dining room has floor to ceiling windows overlooking pastures, and surrounding mountains. Each year, the lodge hosts many special events, weddings and corporate gatherings.

For the outdoor enthusiast, there is fly fishing on-site in the lodge’s stocked trout pond, as well as private access to the Gallatin River within walking distance. The lodge is also a licensed outfitter offering guided fly-fishing trips daily on area rivers and private lakes.
