The Gallatin River Lodge was built in 1998 and opened to the public in 1999. The founder and owner, Steve Gamble, worked with Kane Architecture and Robert Naert Construction to construct a classic western Inn that enhances a spectacular location just west of Bozeman, Montana. The site includes a beautiful trout pond and is a short walk from the world renowned Gallatin River. In 2005, the Patio Dining Room was completed. In May 2012, the new Trout Cabin Lodge, is complete and also offers new contemporary rooms with cutting edge design features.


We operate all year and provide services to our guests that are beyond the average hotel. As a small luxury boutique hotel, we offer exceptional luxurious accommodations, fine creative dining, business conference services, and a quiet place to unwind and relax. We are just 20 minutes from downtown Bozeman, yet in a country setting on a ranch near the Gallatin River-where the movie "River Runs Through It" was filmed. Our staff and their attention to every detail have earned us the distinction of being the #1 hotel onTripAdvisor and we have a very high percentage of returning guests each year.

We also are known as a destination Fly Fishing Lodge and offer exceptional fly fishing opportunities and guide service on the Gallatin, Yellowstone, Jefferson, Missouri and Madison Rivers. We also fish famous private spring creeks nearby. 

Our full service dining facility, The Gallatin River Grill, is known to Bozeman and Gallatin Valley residents as the finest dining in the region. Check our dining page for our most recent menu. We also operate as a small event and conference center and are a great venue for weddings.
