"My boys LOVED this place!!!
Authentic log cabins, lots of space and the Big Hole river to fly fish on! My boys (21, 22 & 55) were able to walk into the river and go upstream into a huge section that is not easily accessible to the public. If there had not been huge rains the day before we arrived, fishing would have been outstanding. Be sure to have good river boots the rocks are a bit slippery here.
Each log cabin has been incredibly restored, three are on new foundations and are all sealed pretty tight. Chris, the owner, has put a lot of love into this place. I am a home remodeler and appreciated all of the detail and lots of thought has gone into the restoration of these great buildings. The beds were comfortable and well appointed.
Each cabin is a bit of a distance from each other, which we liked, and were glad to have brought flashlights. Great for adults or older kids who are comfortable sleeping in their own cabin.
The kitchen has an amazing commercial stove/oven and huge refrigerator. We were able to grilled outside every night.
It is rustic but very comfortable. My boys are planning their next getaway and would love to make this their landing place again.
Be sure to come with your groceries or drive to Butte or Dillon for supplies. Melrose has two fly fishing shops and both were very helpful. We also drove over to the Wise river and Twin Bridges to fish, all within 45 minutes or so.
We booked this rental at the last minute…like one day in advance and arrived late at night. The cabins were opened (window shutters open and fans on) and music greeted us in the cooking cabin. It was a bit of an adventure learning the lay of the land late at night.
About my rating. I would have given it a 4 star rating since I, the only gal, had to sweep out each cabin the first day, behind the bathroom doors had not been swept for a while, and wipe down the kitchen for my liking (I would have liked to have had a vacuum with an edger). My boys roll their eyes and give this vacation spot 6 stars out of 5 so I had to use the average and rated it a 5 :-)
Thank you Chris for sharing this great place it has given us wonderful family vacation memories."

"This description doesn't do justice to the comfortable family setup and ease of use of the home that took all the strain of being in another home. The well organized and provisioned house allowed me to enjoy fully my family, the fishing and wildlife and the peace and quiet. This place offers a lot more than meets the eye from the pictures. It became our home the instant we settled in. The house owners and manager obviously were thoughtful in that they wanted to provide a first class accommodation. So rare to be surprised to the upside these days. Thanks. I will return for sure."

"The Elk View Lodge provided and excellent location from which to venture forth, south into Yellowstone and north to Ennis, Virginian and Nevada Cities. We were greeted by Pam and Steve who provided everything from directions to wine. They are genuine, warm and accommodating hosts. The home is very much as advertised and was very clean!!! The views are incredible, especially appreciated while sitting in the jacuzzi. We had everything we needed and more with plenty of room to spread out. There were nine adults in our party which was comprised of old friends and family members aged 25 to 88 and we all had a wonderful week. We were especially thankful that our dog was welcome."

"We booked this beautiful home for a week as we had people coming from all over the U.S. for our fathers funeral. We had ten people staying there, with more family members coming and going. We were so happy to have had such a nice place to use as our home for the week. It is spacious and has a beautiful big well stocked kitchen. We were able to cook all of our meals there and had some wonderful dinners in the awesome dining room. We never felt crowded. The front and back porches were wonderful to sit and visit on too. Very clean and well kept. Mary and Betty are very nice and obviously have a lot of pride in the home. Very nice yard, in a quite neighborhood. I would highly recomend this property."
