The gourmet dinners with fine wines are excellent as are the breakfasts every morning. The ranch property is worth the trip alone providing beautiful views and wildlife wherever you look. Many thanks to Manu, Parker, Zach and the entire staff. They did a great job following Covid protocols to keep everyone safe and feeling normal. You guys make all the difference!!! Can’t wait until next year. Only 335 days to go...
MVR receives high kudos for their handling of virus related safety protocols during our stay. The safety measures were executed so smoothly that our visit was as positive and uplifting as always. We have stayed at other Orvis endorsed lodges, all of which have been excellent in keeping with Orvis standards, but MVR is even a cut above.
From the minute you arrive at the lodge you are part of their family. Laid back and fun was the theme of our experience. The service was spot on, the food delicious, the guides knowledgeable.This was my first fly fishing experience and definitely not my last.
The perfect Montana fishing trip isn't complete without a comfortable place to rest after a long day on the river. Our lodge offers the perfect retreat with authentic high-end Montana accommodations and your own porch surrounded by stunning views of the Madison Valley.
We're here to make the ultimate Montana vacation a reality for you. Whether you want to stay longer, fish different water, play golf, tour Yellowstone National Park or go for a horseback ride, we can make it happen! Many guests choose to take a day off from fly fishing the Madison River to explore the diverse range of outdoor activities in SW Montana.

A 50% deposit is due upon 14 days of booking to secure the reservation. Final payment is due 30 days prior to arrival. We strongly suggest to all of our guests to look into trip insurance and are happy to make a recommendation. In case of a cancellation, the deposit is fully refundable less a $200 processing fee per person if the cancellation is made prior to 90 days of arrival. For cancellations within 90 days of arrival, 50% of the deposit will be credited to a future lodge trip to be taken within one year of the cancellation, and the remaining deposit is non-refundable. If a cancellation must be made within 30 days of arrival, 25% of the package price will be credited to a future lodge trip to be taken within one year of the cancellation. Unfortunately, the balance is a cancellation fee to cover the costs and inability to rebook the trip on such short notice. Because of our intimate size and reliance on advanced bookings, we must make no exceptions to our cancellation policy. If you are at all concerned with a cancellation possibility, we strongly encourage you to purchase trip insurance.
