About the Property

main cabin has 3 bedrooms/2 baths. Mountain views, on the Madison River

Step out the front door and be on the world-premier fly fishing Madison River. Fish when you want, catch the evening hatch while you enjoy antelope and deer grazing nearby. The cabin has three bedrooms and the guest lodge has two units. Each unit contains its own kitchen,private bath, two bedrooms and a private entrance.

When you are in between the hatches on the Madison River visit Yellowstone National Park, Virginia City, or Nevada City. You are minutes away from the Gallatin River, the Firehole, Gibbon, and other famous rivers in Yellowstone National Park.

Every guest who has visited has marveled at the beauty of the surrounding area and the comforts and first-class conditions of the living space. This is our home which we open up to you as you enjoy the beauty of Montana and the great Madison River. Check us out for your winter snowmobling and skiing vacation. It will be an adventure!

Please call to check on availability. All booked dates are not on the calendar until both the Guest Lodge and Cabin are full. Make sure your dates are available by contacting us immediately. We'll be glad to explore possible dates with you at any time.

Winter at our place is a special time of year..even if you have to snowmobile into the property. Soft snow, cold nights, a warm fire and plenty of winter sports...including fly fishing is available to you here.

Winter is coming, think about a week of Winter fun cross-country skiing, downhill skiing at Big Sky or just enjoying over 1,000 miles of snowmobile trails within a short drive of the property.

Montana Spirit Guest Lodge is located on the edge of the Lee Metcalf Wilderness area just down from Quake Lake on the world famous Madison River. Step out the front door with a quick walk down to the Madison to catch the early evening hatch. We are just 26 miles from West Yellowstone, the western gate to Yellowstone National Park and 40 miles south of Ennis. Henry Lake is a few miles down the road and Henry Fork is ten miles further.

Hiking, fishing, horseback riding at nearby ranches, sightseeing, exploring Yellowstone National Park and visiting the rustic town of Virginia City are a few of the many activities one can do. Cliff and Wade Lake are a short drive as is Quake Lake for those big brown trout lying in the cool deep water for those who might prefer boating as to wading the Madison.

Day trips into Yellowstone National Park for sightseeing or fishing is only a quick ride away over the Continental Divide. Day hikes into Alpine lakes can offer spectacular trout fishing for cutthroats, or golden trout with the chance to see Moose, Wolf, bear, or elk along the way.


Owner info

About the owner: Diana is a retired cardiac nurse and has always enjoyed being around people. David is a consultant and is now Executive Director for Habitat for Humanity of Gallatine Valley. Both of us have always enjoyed the outdoors and have traveled west for many of our vacations. We decided, once we retired, that here in Montana is where we will make our home and run a Guest Lodge. Best decision we have made.

Why the Owner Chose Cameron, MT, USA:
The property encompasses all of our dreams of owning a log home on 20 or more acres, with the Madison River in front of our home and close to Yellowstone National Park. Ideal for fishermen, tourists, and family reunions.

Main cabin rents for $2200/week ( 7days, 6 nights) Main cabin and one unit of the lodge $3200/week Main cabin and both units of the lodge $4200/week One unit of the lodge $1300/week Entire lodge$2200/week.
