1 cozy Traditional room, tastefully decorated with a queen size bed and ensuite bathroom. Comfortable and cozy seating area, writing desk and everything you need to make your stay comfortable and unforgettable.


It is customary to tip fishing guides 20% of the fishing cost per day ($650) for each guided trip (1 or 2 anglers), or approximately $130. Calculating guide gratuities works similarly to how you would calculate a tip for any service provider and is based on the overall level of effort and performance provided by your guide. Your cash gratuity should be given to the guide at the end of each day’s fishing.


  • A deposit of 50% is due at booking with the balance due at least 30 days prior to your visit. We accept most major credit cards and we recommend you purchase travel insurance.

  • Although we all love our four-legged pals, we cannot welcome pets at the lodge.


  • Because of our small size, cancellations affect us significantly. A last minute cancellation gives us little chance of filling the space. For this reason we uphold a strict cancellation policy. Your deposit, less a $100 cancellation fee, will be happily refunded if cancellation is made at least 90 days prior to arrival. After that, we regret that no refund is possible for non-guided fishing days, non-arrival or early departure. 


  • For the ultimate getaway, the lodge may be reserved for private fishing parties, corporate fishing groups or family fishing groups. We can arrange the most exclusive of amenities and services, so please contact us to discuss this amazing Montana experience.
