What To Know

  • The spa has a great staff, but it’s a one-roomer and can pick up some noise from the road
  • It’s best to rent a car, as the lodge is fairly isolated
  • Call ahead to schedule snowmobiling, skiing, horseback riding, rafting or fishing trips after you book your stay

Wonderful accommodations, view and service

We stayed at Rainbow Ranch Lodge for last three days of our six night vacation and wished that we had stayed there the entire trip. So relaxing to sit on the back deck in our own Adirondack chairs to enjoy the view. We also had a cocktails by the fireplace in the bar area that was cozy and comfortable. Cocktails were very good. Buffett breakfast was delicious. My sister and I agreed that it was the best bacon that we have ever had. Dinner menu was amazing . Service was top notch in every area of the lodge. My husband took a hike up the trail by the river at the hotel and said that is was incredible views. One evening we called the front desk to ask if there were towels at the hot tub and we were told that they would deliver some for us. When we arrived, the fireplace had been started for us. We loved it. As we were reluctantly leaving, we were already planning our next stay.

Wonderful place to stay, Great comfortable accommodations.

I had a king riverside room with fireplace. Well decorated and maintained. Ample firewood for fireplace. Nice porch with two adirondack chairs. Great vew of the Gallatin River. First night had dinner the service and food was very good. My lodging included a wonderful tasty breakfast buffet each morning. It included eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, cererals, breads, pastries, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, tea and etc. Service outstanding in all areas.

Great stay with our four legged friend

We stayed at RR Lodge during a road trip with our dog. The lodge was an excellent place to stay with the pet friendly rooms set at the back facing the river. Service was really good and friendly and we had a great dinner at the restaurant on site. There is a 3 mile hike with great views and wildlife spotting straight out of RR lodge and the grounds and setting are beautiful. Highly recommended.
