The Gallatin River Lodge was built in 1998 and opened to the public in 1999. The founder and owner, Steve Gamble, worked with Kane Architecture and Robert Naert Construction to construct a classic western Inn that enhances a spectacular location just west of Bozeman, Montana. The site includes a beautiful trout pond and is a short walk from the world renowned Gallatin River. In 2005, the Patio Dining Room was completed as shown in the photo below. In May 2012, the new Trout Cabin Lodge, is complete andalso offers new contemporary rooms with cutting edge design features.

"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."
