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.
