Unsurpassed. Inside and out.

Montana is a state of mind. It is the crown jewel of the Great American West. Big, brash, and beautiful. Above you, cobalt blue skies send radiant reflections into the Bighorn River as you cast your line always mere moments away from the strike of a lifetime. At night, 5-trillion stars above make perfect dinner companions as you enjoy the area’s finest culinary creations. And you’ll sleep in the replenishing mountain air as it prepares you for the next day’s adventures.

A variety of side trip options are available in close proximity to the Bighorn River Lodge offering an opportunity to revisit the history of the Old West punctuated with names like Lewis and Clark. General George Custer and Sitting Bull. Just a thirty-minute drive to the east is the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Park, a must see for those interested in the history of the west. Just another hour to the south is the icon western town of Sheridan, Wyoming, home to the Brinton Museum and its world class collection of the best in Western art. Not to be missed in Sheridan is the King’s Rope Museum and its collection of the finest handmade leather saddles and Western memorabilia. For a side trip of a lifetime take a day and spend it on the Bighorn Lake with its towering five-hundred-foot limestone cliffs winding its way though canyons carved out over millions of years of erosion from the Bighorn River.
