Recent Ennis property reviews

  • Great location and house

    "Great rental home and location. The Madison river is a short walk away, and plenty of wildlife to watch right off of the back porch. Really enjoyed the wood fireplace, as we made fires every night. The kitchen was fully stocked which allowed us to cook each night. 60 minutes from West Yellowstone, 75 minutes from Dillon (beaver head/big sky rivers), and close to Bozeman. Perfect central location for all of the activities that we wanted to do. Can't wait to go back! Great owners, and very easy to work it."

  • Perfect River Retreat

    "We stayed here for a romantic getaway in July, 2011. This riverfront bungalow has been nicely renovated, but maintains its original charm and cozy ambiance. I thought it looked better than the photos and was very pleased with how clean it was. We especially loved being able to open up the windows and sleep (in the comfy king-sized bed) with the summer breeze blowing through the curtains and the sound of the Madison River lulling us. Walking to town for shopping and eating was a plus, but the real highlight of our trip was the river. It was so calming to sit on the deck, drink wine and enjoy the ever-peaceful Madison. You can wade right in if fishing is your thing. The kitchen had everything we needed to fix delicious home cooked meals. And the restaurants in Ennis are very good. Nearby attractions include Yellowstone, Bozeman, Virginia City, and world class fishing. We really enjoyed our stay here and plan on returning next year!"

  • Trout Fishermen

    "I have had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful home twice now and have the highest recommendation. Very comfortable and expansive - especially the great room as a wonderful, cozy place to play cards in the evening after fishing right out front of the property!"

  • Family Reunion

    "Our stay at Cold Creek Cabin was excellent! The cabin was perfect for our family reunion. We fished, floated the Madison, fished at the kids pond in Ennis, went to Art in the Park, Virginia City, many walks, visited Wade Lake for 2 days, and went to the Fish Hatchery. We loved watching the wildlife and the morning sunrise. It was truly an exceptional vacation. We all live in Montana and enjoy everything about it, but it was so much fun to all be able to stay together and RELAX!"

Ennis Travel Tips

Country Living at Ennis Vacation Rentals

Ennis is a destination you can visit and feel as though you have escaped to an entirely different world. The homes are spacious and set on large properties. Many of the homes are used as wedding venues and can accommodate large groups of people. If you want to teach your children to enjoy and appreciate nature, there is no better way than to stay in a place like Ennis for a while. Here, you are surrounded by beautiful mountains, rivers and streams with no city lights to interrupt your views. Most people come to Ennis to enjoy hours of fly fishing on the waterways. The region is rumored to have the best trout fishing for miles. It is also a destination where there are endless outdoor adventure opportunities.

Activities to Do near Ennis Cabins

The Madison River and its tributaries are popular fly fishing spots for both locals and visitors. Stop in at one of the local fishing and lure stores and have a chat with the locals. They may let you in on some of their favorite fishing spots. Fishing guides are also available to take you down the river if you’d like.

If you like faster paced river adventures, you can raft or kayak down the lower Madison River, the Gallitin River or Beartrap Canyon. Commercial operators run the rivers in season and tours can be booked through the local information center.

To explore the region in true Montana style, pull on your cowboy boots and get into the saddle. Trail rides on horseback are some of the best ways to enjoy the countryside. Guided back country rides can be arranged though any number of the ranches near Ennis. Some offer mult-iday rides where you can sleep out under the stars and see the northern lights.

There are many trails that can be explored on foot or mountain bikes. The lakes of Ennis, Harrison, Sure Shot or Hebgen are great for picnicking. There are many opportunities for wildlife viewing on the various trails; however, visitors need to be aware that it is bear country and take the necessary precautions. Yellow Stone National Park is just a short drive away; there, you can see Old Faithful, the natural geyser that shoots up into the air at regular intervals.

The area was once a place to which many gold prospectors flocked. If you are interested in the gold rush history, you can take a guided tour in either Nevada City or Virginia City. As part of the tour, you can ride an old steam train and pan for gold. There are also several ghost towns dotted throughout the region that you can seek out by exploring the back country roads.

In the wintertime, there are many cross country ski trails and showshoe tracks for exploring. Snowmobile trails cut through the forests and are great ways to explore during the snowy winter months.

Large living and lounge areas provide space to congregate and socialize. The kitchens are generally well equipped. While they may be old in style, many have a host of modern appliances that make holiday catering easy and convenient.
