As soon as we pulled onto the property — I could immediately tell this was going to be an awesome lodge. Manu & Kaitlin are the perfect host. From meeting/greeting you as soon as you get out of the truck to sitting down to converse over dinner, you can tell they, along with everyone else at MVR, wants your time there to be spectacular. The property is immaculately maintained, the food and wine pairings rank right up with the top restaurants you could find anywhere, their attention to detail is simply amazing. I could go on and on about the lodge — but it’s a place you need to experience for your self to have a true appreciation for this place. As for the fishing and their guides — they are the best of the best. Brandon, Gunnar and Dave were all on top of their game and know where to find fish. They were all very informative and didn’t let the less than perfect weather conditions (an on river blizzard with 20mph gust) slow them down and kept us on fish all day despite conditions. Book this lodge.. You won’t be disappointed. I’m already planning my next trip back out there!
