Message from Lodge Manager, PJ Wirchansky

The past month at the Lodge has been incredibly exciting, as we have begun several new projects, along with the celebration of our 17th IMG 4906Anniversary. In addition to the outdoor projects, we welcomed new Executive Chef, Scott Myers to the GRL team. Scott loves to support local farmers and ranchers, and brings over 20 years of culunary experience to the Lodge. You can read about Scott Myers here.

We are also bringing back the GRL Chef’s Garden this summer, with recent MSU graduate, Brianna Dudek as our Garden and Landscaping Manager. She promises a delectable garden full of fresh herbs, edible flowers, and specialty vegetables. Learn more about the GRL Garden here.

Also outside, we are in the process of building a brand new deck/ event pavilion just east of the trout pond, which we plan to complete early summer. We have created a water feature that flows into the pond, aiding in the necessary water inflow.

IMG 5086The summer season is looking very busy, and we are all very excited to welcome our GRL friends back again, and to meet many new ones this year. Let us know when you are ready to return, or join us for your first GRL experience. We promise to do everything we can to make it a memorable stay!





Meet GRL Chef's Garden Manager, Brianna Dudek

The Gallatin River Lodge is excited to announce our new Chef’s Garden. Our garden focuses on herbs, edible flowers, and specialty vegetables and items that may be hard to find in our local market. Our goal is to provide the freshest possible ingredients, hand-picked only hours before service.  Our garden manager, Brianna Dudek, is a recent graduate from Montana State University with a Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Food and Bioenergy Systems.
