The Real Gateway to Yellowstone
A real Western experience is easy to come by at the Yellowstone Valley Lodge. The Lodge includes a number of beautiful cabins and a restaurant situated along the Yellowstone River in Montana's spectacular Paradise Valley. The lodge is known for the bespoke touches found throughout the property, from the food in the kitchen to the design of the cabins.
This is one of the finest Yellowstone National Park bases you'll ever find, and perhaps the only one you'll ever return to after a night or two of falling asleep along the river.

Fly-Fishing and Big Sky Views Galore
An hour outside of Bozeman and just 30 miles from Yellowstone National Park is the Yellowstone Valley Lodge. Owned by the O'Reilly family (the auto parts giant), this place used to be a rundown fly-fishing camp. They put a touch of TLC into the property and now it's a clean, basic place to rest your head, and to connect with the outdoors and your fellow fly-fishing fanatics. The kitchen serves up some pretty great dishes including locally-sourced lamb and beef.
