About the property

6-Bedroom, 8-Bathroom Private Retreat in the Heart of SW Montana

Take advantage off an incredible off-season rental opportunity:

Hold your company meeting, family reunion, our group retreat on the beautiful grounds of a luxury fly fishing resort!

An ORVIS-endorsed fly fishing lodge in the summertime, Madison Valley Ranch is situated on the banks of the Madison River near Ennis, Montana. Our backyard is outdoors men's paradise with inspiring Big Sky Country views and daily wildlife activity.

We operate as an all-inclusive fishing lodge from April through October and are thrilled to make our largest lodge building available as a vacation rental in our off-season.

The lodge offers six spacious bedrooms, each with two queen beds and a full private bathroom. A generous great room features a fully-equipped open kitchen, bar area, two-story gas fireplace, and living area with a flat screen TV and surround-sound entertainment center.

Furniture can easily be moved and set up to create a meeting space for up to 20 participants.

On the property, a two-acre stocked trout pond invites to wet a line and our 7-person is the perfect place to soak as the sun sets over the mountains.

More bedrooms in a neighboring building can be made available upon request.

Also ask us about gourmet catering options!

About Manuela Redmond

Our team at the Madison Valley Ranch is passionate about fly fishing & the outdoors, and we’re excited to share the wonders of Southwest Montana with our guests.

When the Carver family looked at the picturesque property on the banks of the world famous Madison River in 1996, they knew they were hooked. The Carvers put a lot of hard work into making the lodge feel welcoming and homey to please even the most discerning guests.

In 2003, Scott Carver was joined by two of his friends, Dan and Tom, in the ownership of the Madison Valley Ranch.

MVR has since become and ORVIS-endorsed lodge and proud winner of the 2015 ORVIS Lodge of the Year Award.

Contact Madison Valley Ranch managers Manu or Kaitlin to book your retreat!

Luxury accommodations with beautiful mountain views!

  • 5 of 5

We held our weekend staff retreat at the lodge in March and completely enjoyed the open common areas with mountain views, and spacious, well - appointed rooms with private baths. This property works well for just about any event you can dream up. The staff is friendly, gracious and accommodating. We highly recommend it and we hope to be back next year!
