The Bighorn River Lodge is crafted in the log-style construction that is representative of historic Montana. Guests enjoy luxurious double occupancy rooms that have been updated and renovated for your comfort.  Each room features a pair of soft, warm beds adorned with fine linens, a private bathroom and plush accommodations.  King size beds are available for couples on request. The Lodge comprises of five different bedrooms each with it’s own unique personality and décor. With the addition of the Caddis Cabin, we can easily accommodate groups up to fourteen.

A warm and inviting hearth room is where most guests congregate to swap stories of the big one that didn’t get away.  Enjoy a crackling fire in the fireplace and delicious hors d’oeuvres. Step out onto our spacious deck and take in one of Montana’s breathtaking sunsets while the finishing touches are made on dinner.

lodge-verticalThe Bighorn River Lodge has been described by our guests as “a gourmet restaurant disguised as a fishing lodge.”  Guests can expect hearty Montana-style breakfasts, delicious handmade boat lunches, and savory home cooked dinners that are beyond compare.  A typical dinner might include your choice of Merlot Glazed Beef Short Ribs or Cornmeal Crusted Walleye with Lemon Caper sauce, served with Garlic Roasted Mashed Potatoes and Bacon wrapped Asparagus.  It is truly exquisite cuisine, prepared from scratch every day.

After a relaxing meal around the dinner table, enjoy a friendly game of poker at our custom made poker table, fish our private bass pond or hit the river one last time and take advantage of the evening hatch.
