Gallatin River Lodge

Reviewed 21 July 2014

We stayed one night here. The room was spacious with separate twin beds for the kids. The lodge is nicely maintained and has an excellent restaurant for dinner. We took advantage of family fly fishing lessons on the trout pond on the premises. The kids also enjoyed running around the property and playing both the outside games like horseshoes, as well as board games in the second floor parlor. Staff was very friendly.

We were originally booked to stay a night at the lodge but then decided against staying based on some of the TA comments and the $300/night cost. The cost didn't bother is as much as the cost based on the comments. We had dinner at the lodge and felt it was very good and would return for dinner. After dinner, we looked at a few rooms in the main lodge and although nice, tough to justify double or more the cost of a room closer to Bozeman.

Note that the lodge is a short drive west of Bozeman and this shouldn't be an issue. I was surprised by the final bill which was reasonable from the perspective of cost for glasses of wine and drinks (Tangueray and tonic $7.00) and dessert. The scallop appetizer was very good. My entrée of local beef tenderloin was excellent and the chef cooked it to my specification exactly , the potatoes a bit undercooked which is surprising for a five star restaurant. There are no vegetarian entrees on the menu but the chef cooked up a pasta with vegetables that was good but not spectacular.

Room Tip: Unless you love jacuzzi tubs in your room, consider not staying in the main lodge or if possible ask...

We were doing a long road trip through Yellowstone and made some last minutes changes and decided to go to Bozeman. Found this amazing place on TA and they had dog friendly rooms. Great hotel - great food. Staff very accomodating and room was well appointed. It is located about 15 minutes from downtown Bozeman but you can't find a better restaurant with wide open windows looking out onto the view.

We needed a short vacation. We wanted to ski and not deal with lots of people. We also wanted great food. We had it all here. Ski all day, have a great meal ready upon our return and relax in our in-room jacuzzi by the fire. We can't wait to return. Spoiled is an under statement.

Room Tip: Pick the lodge rooms.

My husband and I have eaten at the restaurant at the lodge once before for a business dinner, but this was our first time staying in the hotel. We both have spring fever, so we decided to take advantage of their Winter Romance Package. From the time we entered the lodge, the service was spectacular! We were greeted warmly upon arrival, and every employee of the hotel/restaurant that we interacted with was exceptional.

The room was well appointed, and the jacuzzi and fireplace were wonderful. Our neighbors were a little noisy upstairs in the morning, but other than that it was very quiet. We also enjoyed hanging out by the fireplace in the lobby after dinner.

Our dinner was excellent. We especially loved the scallops appetizer.

Keep up the good work. We will definitely be back!

I had the pleasure of spending one lovely night at this Inn on Feb. 15, 2014. From the warm welcome/complimentary pick up at Bozeman's airport, to the friendly/delightful staff, comfortable/cozy/spacious rooms with fireplace/jacuzzi tub & all the necessities ... to the delicious dining ... it will be a place I will treasure in my memory and HIGHLY recommend to you!
