- The Caddis Shack is located in the heart of the small town of Ennis, nestled in the splendor of the beautiful Madison Valley, of southwestern Montana. If you enjoy fishing blue ribbon trout streams, the Madison is world famous, and other streams, such as the Big Hole, Beaverhead, Yellowstone and Gallatin, are within reasonable distance for a day trip. If exploring caves is of interest, The Lewis and Clark Caverns and State Park is approximately 39 miles north of Ennis, and offers guided tours through the caverns, and can be a fun, cool thing to do, on a hot summer day. Stop by at the Water of the Gods for a soak in the natural hot springs at Norris on your way home. Enjoy a meal and some music, if your timing is right, then jump back in the car for a short 14 mile drive home. Does floating down the river in an inter tube sound like a relaxing thing to do on a hot day? Be sure to check out tube rentals in town and journey to Warm Springs Fishing access on Hwy 87, for a slow meandering float along the shores of the Madison River below Ennis Lake. Bozeman is approximately 52 miles from Ennis, and is where you can find most anything you might want, and is most likely to be the spot you fly into, if your arrive by jet. Take in a movie at the modern cinema's, or browse through the Museum of the Rockies, and marvel at the exhibits, planetarium and world renowned dinosaurs collection. Dining is a matter of choice, and their are many restaurants to chose from, whether it's Sushi at my favorite, Seven Sushi on Kagy and Wilson, or a fun and wonderfully creative meal at The Cat Eye Cafe, the list goes on and on, so be adventurous, and find your own personal favorite. West Yellowstone is 71 miles from Ennis, and is the jumping off point to Yellowstone National Park, which offers an entirely different array of wonderful trout streams from the Firehole and Gardiner Rivers to the famous Slough Creek, known for it's big Cutthroat. If fishing isn't your bag, wildlife and photography opportunities abound in Yellowstone Park, and you are sure to be awed as you admire the scenery in our countries oldest National Park. Historical Virginia City is a mere 14 mile drive from Ennis, where you can step back into time and be entertained by the Virginia City Players, or the bawdy antics of the Brewery Follies actors. Whether you are a fishing fanatic, a history buff, or just simply looking for a beautiful place to relax, the Madison Valley, and the town of Ennis, has something for you. Browse the seasonal art walks, the weekly farmers market, take in one of the many festivals, listed with the Chamber of Commerce, peruse the galleries, antique and gift shops, or take in a meal at one of several wonderful local restaurants. Want some wild and scenic touring time, that you can enjoy from the comfort of your car? Consider taking the Gravelly Range Rd., along the spine of the Gravelly Mountains, for scenic panoramas and wildflowers that will take your breath away. Check with the Forest Service in town before departing for updates on travel conditions, just to be safe. Drive south and enjoy the Centennial Valley, and Red Rocks Wildlife Refuge, on the Idaho border, for a chance to spot birds and wildlife, without the crowds of Yellowstone Park. Be sure to bring your binoculars, a bird book, and a spotting scope if you have one, and don't forget the fishing rods. If you are not opposed to crossing a state line, and purchasing another fishing license, Idaho has some famous water that is worth the effort. The famed Henry's Fork of the Snake is approximately 73 miles south of Ennis, and you will pass by Henry's Lake en-route. Whatever you chose to do, The Caddis Shack is centrally located for all of your activities, and can offer you a private, comfortable place to hang your hat and put your feet up for some R & R.....moreless

We fell in love with Caddis Shack, Marina and Ennis!
We fell in love with Caddis Shack, Marina and Ennis!
Our recent 5-day stay in Marina's lovely Caddis Shack exceeded our expectations for comfort, convenience, consideration and good ole country charm. We were greeted upon arrival by Marina, who had the cottage in tip-top shape. She showed us all around and then we indulged in a deep and roving discussion of all things food-related in and around Ennis. Fortunately, we trusted our hostess's great instincts and followed many of her recommendations, which netted an excellent dinner of local (farmed) trout at the Gravel Bar bistro; a stupendous New York strip, handmade potato sausages and ground round from Deemo's butcher (which we grilled over coals in the leafy & private backyard); and excellent coffees and breakfast sandwiches at the coffee shop. Oh yeah, don't forget the smile-inducing espresso milkshakes at the Pharmacy counter -- another hugely-appreciated Marina suggestion. When we weren't eating or checking out the Friday night farmer's market, we were enjoying every minute of the community-wide July 4 parade, meeting ranchers and artists and exploring Lower Ennis Proper, buying a gorgeous leather "blessing bowl" at an art gallery and turquoise jewelry at Benji's, swimming in the reservoir behind Meadow Lake, chatting with boaters and fishermen on the Madison River and generally lolling about wherever we felt like laying a blanket and a picnic. Next time we'll do more touristy stuff like the train ride out of Virginia City, the Virginia City players and maybe the fancy Continental Divide restaurant. But for now, we are just thrilled and grateful for the wonderful vacation we experienced at the Caddis Shack. Thanks, Marina! J+T

We are staying at The Caddis House for the 3rd time in 3 years. Each stay has lasted at least 3 weeks. We keep coming back because it is truly a home away from home for us. It is charming, cozy, clean and ideally located to everything we want to do in the area. The owner clearly loves her place and that's reflected in how she has decorated and maintained The Caddis Shack. B and B Walnut Creek, Ca.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: I bought this house for my father to live in, in 2000, and have since decided to use it as a vacation rental, with the hopes of using it as my retirement home someday. While I upgraded it with a vacationer in mind, it is furnished as comfortably as a home, and I hope you will call it your home away from home. If you are lacking in something, within reason, I will do my best to see that your needs are met. I live 40 miles south of town, and while I can't be there in an instant, I will do my best to make sure that your stay is comfortable, and that the house is well functioning during your stay.
Why the Owner Chose Ennis:
This property is perfect for a couple looking for a comfortable spot to base their Madison Valley vacation out of. It is affordable, well appointed, comfortable and convenient. If needed, it can sleep up to 4 people, but is ideal for a couple, since it only has one small bathroom. Ennis is a quaint small Montana town with festivals, a 4th of July Parade, Rodeos, art walks, a golf course, antique and gift shops, a new library, several good restaurants/bars, and a locally owned, old time movie theater, all within an easy walking distance of the house. Don't miss a tour through the new Whiskey Distillery, Willie's Distillery at the east end of town.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This little house was one of the original homes in Ennis but is newly remodeled and modern. The location, in the 'old' part of town assures big mature shade trees and the quaintness of small town America. It has a residential/commercial zoning, and is surrounded by commercial buildings, which are used little, so you won't have a bunch of noisy neighbors bothering your vacation time! Off street parking is a bonus, and the close proximity to downtown makes everything in town an easy walk for most.
