"Wanted to thank you again for your hospitality on our recent stay. Your staff was exceptional in every respect. As a manager of a large Ag related business, it is indeed rare anymore to encounter a staff and business who exceed all reasonable expectations. Your staff did, and it is testament to an engaged owner and manager with an able eye for people. Our stay was great and everyone on your staff from Housekeeper to Chef to Bartender to Guide to Manager was engaged in our having a good experience. I have stayed at Five Star hotels where I was not treated as well. The food was exceptional as was the experience. Thanks to everybody. Steve, you should be very proud of what you have built and fostered."

"I wanted to thank you for the wonderful stay at your lodge, fly fishing, and instruction. My daughter and I had a blast! The accommodations were excellent; the fishing great; the food was superb, but most of all the staff went out of their way to be cordial and made everyone feel taken care of. Your lodge was a joy to visit. Steve, you have played an instrumental role in "hooking" Lindsay on trout fishing and giving me the joy of knowing she's looking forward to our next fly fishing trip. Be assured I've already recommended you to several people. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to promote the Gallatin River Lodge back East! Thanks again for a delightful stay."

“We would highly recommend this Lodge for anyone. We usually do not return to the same place on vacations (we are usually a ‘been there, done that’ type couple) but we will return to this lodge. It was simply perfect. The guides are terrific and the food was the best."
Steve & Resa, Budapest, Hungary
 “Staying at your lovely peaceful lodge was a highlight of our driving vacation. Your location, ambiance and food were wonderful. Our stay of one night was too short! Leroy started talking of returning to fish right away.”
Martha & Leroy, California

"We really look forward to returning to the Lodge again this year. My wife has only requested to return to one lodge in the past 7 years and never before in the next year. We were very impressed with your accommodations, food and the Yellowstone river. We really love it there."
Jim, Indiana
"All of our guests commented on what a finely crafted, well-appointed and charming lodge you have built. Equally important, we found that the staff at the Gallatin River Lodge bent over backward to make each of our guests feel welcome."

"We always love coming to Montana, but this trip was special. The whole family enjoyed being at the Gallatin River Lodge. The accommodations are great, the food delicious and the staff wonderful."
Don & Barb, Illinois
"We certainly did enjoy our vacation out there with you folks. I enjoyed the fishing very much and Faith and Reisa had a wonderful time. It was especially nice that they got to do some riding together. You folks were fine hosts and we enjoyed our stay at your beautiful lodge. We will see you again, maybe a long weekend in Montana next spring to catch some fish!"
Robert, Florida
"Gallatin River Lodge was really very good. Rooms extremely well equipped, with Jacuzzi bath and shower, large TV, fireplace and a large comfortable bed. Meals were up to superb standards and well patronized by local folks. It is more than simply an excellent fishing lodge: they are open all year and arrange other activities for guests. My guide was excellent and an enjoyable fishing partner."
Nigel, Cyprus
"Just want to thank you for a great time. We are all impressed with your lodge and the fine fishing, food and accommodations. It is a wonderful operation and we had a ball. I caught lots of beautiful browns and rainbows in the time we spent there. The water was clear, cold and low-Perfect. There were rising fish around the first upstream bend of the river at the Lodge, and I nailed three on parachute adams and a caddis emerger. Could be among my favorite spots of the trip. Next time I want to spend more energy on the Gallatin River."
Fred, New York
