Founder and Outfitter
Steve is the Owner and Innkeeper at the Lodge. He has over 30 years of experience in various hospitality, lodging and restaurant businesses. He founded the Lodge in 1998 after 20 years operating Yellowstone Mountain Guides, a wilderness horseback, hunting and fly fishing guide service. He also had a wintertime career in the ski industry as a search dog trainer, snow safety specialist and patrolman. Steve enjoys salt water fly fishing in far away places when not guiding and fishing the Yellowstone region. He enjoys cooking and entertaining Lodge guests by reciting Robert Service and cowboy poetry.
Craig Seguin grew up in St. Cloud, Minnesota. His first culinary degree was received from St. Cloud Technical College. This experience was great for him, but it left if wanting more... a lot more. Chef Craig was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend the world renowned, Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York; which was a defining point in his career. At the CIA he worked with some of the top chefs in the world, and even got the opportunity to be a part of the filming of "Great Chefs", as well as many other unique opportunities. Along with his excitment for great food, Craig is also an avid flyfisherman, so the fit with the lodge was even more ideal. Do not be surprised if he comes running out to the pond to see the trout you landed, or chats about your day on the river before he cooks you dinner.
