  • Truly Amazing!! We can't wait to go back!

    "My husband and I were lucky enough to get to spend a week here at Elk View Lodge and we had the most remarkable time! This was our first visit to Montana and we can not wait to go back. We drove up from Southern California and stopped along the way to see Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon. Both completely worth the trip. When we arrived at Elk View, Steve was there to greet us. He showed us around the lodge and gave us a lot of information about adventures and place to see near by. Elk View Lodge itself was amazing. Very clean and well maintained, very spacious and plenty of room for a large family. The lodge was completely stocked with everything you will need. You will only need to bring your food. The kitchen was also completely stocked with everything from spices to a crock pot! Oh and what a view, spectacular! We visited Virginia City and Nevada City and had fun walking through site seeing and taking pictures. Ennis is the closest town with shopping and plenty of places to eat. West Yellowstone was about a 45 minute drive and was absolutely a must see. We also took a day trip to Jackson Hole Wyoming to see the Grand Tetons. Awesome! The town itself was a wonderful place to visit. Lots of cute boutiques, art museums, shopping and quaint restaurants. This is a place you will want to see. And if you are an angler, then you will be pleased! There are so many lakes, Quake Lake, Cliff and Wade Lakes and Ennis Lake, just to name a few. And of course the Madison river which is just down from the Lodge. These lakes are all beautiful and surprisingly not very busy for the middle of August. One day, Steve was nice enough to drive us up river so we could kayak back down to the lodge. That was so much fun! In the evenings we would sit out on the patio and watch the beautiful sunsets over the Madison River. A couple of nights we saw some incredible thunder and lightning shows. Not something we see to often in Southern California. Montana was truly an amazing place to see and Elk View Lodge is the place you will want to stay. Pam and Steve were awesome hosts and they have thought of everything you might need. The descriptions and the pictures are accurate but really do not do it justice. Your really have to see the place. I would recommend Elk View Lodge to any of my friends and family and we are looking forward to being able to visit again. Thank you Pam and Steve for a truly amazing vacation that we will never forget!"

  • We spent a wonderful month at this house

    "We spent a month, Aug/Sept, in the house and had a fantastic time! Mark was excellent to interact with from initial inquires to refund of deposit. He is a really nice guy. The setting of the house is perfect, it is furnished with everything you need to have a relaxed time, and it is very clean. Besides fishing on the Madison, there are many other smaller streams to fish as well - West Fork of the Madison, Indian Creek, Ruby River, Willow Creek, etc. If you are there over a major holiday, go to the Patagonia Outlet sale in Dillion and then to the Taco Bus for lunch. Thanks for sharing your beautiful house Mark!"

  • Perfect vacation!

    "Bob and Dallas have a beautiful home! Five guys from New Hampshire and Maine headed out for a Montana fishing trip and a great time was had by all. The house was just as advertised and very comfortable for all of us. Ennis is a great town, and thanks to Dallas, we found some great food and fun places for a beer without a lot of trial and error. Most nights though we relaxed around the house and took advantage of the beautiful kitchen and all the amenities. Can't wait for the chance to head their way again! Thanks again Bob and Dallas!"

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.
