About the property

Lodge, 6 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 17-20)

Conveniently located, Lucky Dog Lodge serves as the perfect home base for a terrific range of year round activities for all ages, interests, and abilities. You can walk out the back door with private access to the Gallatin River for an early morning fishing session, walk or bike a short distance downstream to Bozeman Hot Springs and Spa, or drive a few miles up Gallatin Canyon where hiking trails are numerous and everything from white water rafting to horseback riding is available. There's even a public 18-hole golf course just minutes away. Downhill and cross country skiing, ice skating, and other winter activities are all conveniently located to the Lucky Dog Lodge including both Big Sky Resort and Bridger Bowl Ski Area.

As you enter the Lucky Dog Lodge, your eye is immediately drawn to the third floor balcony and the massive logs and ridge pole surrounded by a ceiling of fir tongue-and-groove wood planks, lit up by a myriad of natural light. Open rooms and high ceilings provide a spacious and airy feel throughout. Radiant floor heating and thick logs maintain a comfortable temperature year round. Wood decks extending from the second and third floors, as well a large ground level deck, offer views of a number of mountain ranges and the Gallatin River while you are entertaining or relaxing. Enjoy the sunset from the hot tub on the second story deck overlooking the Gallatin River and surrounding cottonwood forest.

In all there are six bedrooms and five bathrooms. The open main floor sports a fully-equipped modern kitchen complete with pine breakfast bar and a large dining area. The comfortable relaxing area is also perfect for family games or a small business retreat meeting. When it’s time to take a break from enjoying the inside of the Lucky Dog Lodge, try out the 2nd floor deck outdoor hot tub on a starry Montana night!

Pets are permitted with a $50 fee per pet and agreement to our pet rules.

The Lucky Dog Lodge is a licensed and permitted tourist home facility through the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services, License # 301793.

Enjoy pure and simple comfort in this unique log structure built with gleaming ponderosa pine logs from Montana forests. Relax to the sounds of the legendary Gallatin River while resting in your log bed from an old Montana Ranch.

Guestbook comments from the owner


This is just a little note of thanks. We thoroughly enjoyed our nights (July 08) at the Lucky Dog Lodge. The lodge, yard and river access were all tremendous. We will definitely keep the Lucky Dog Lodge in mind for future gatherings."

Home Style Gathering

  • 5 of 5

To start out, the lodge and the story behind it are inspirational. You can feel the love that went into it as soon as you walk in the door. It has a feeling of a comfortable home. The downstairs space allows for the entire group to spend time together. The kitchen is fully stocked with every pot, pan, utensil, cups, plates, coffee pots, will ever need. The gigantic table and the comfy couches are natural gathering spots. There are cozy spots within the big room that allow for multiple conversations to happen or just a spot to snuggle. We were able to sleep 17 people very comfortably. The rooms were quiet and there is a beautiful view from every window. The sheets, towels, and soaps were of good quality and the bedding was comfortable. There are many bathrooms which is great when you have that many people. The views from the balconies (especially the 3rd floor) make it worth the stairs. It is a great location. When you are there it feels like you are out in the wilderness but it is a short drive to town. The Lucky Dog Lodge will be a part of our memories for years. Not only was it a great stay but the Cats won the Battle of the Brawl at home!

Comfortable and well equipped lodge.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lodge recently as the base for a 50th high school reunion. It worked out beautifully. The first floor had an open floor plan with several furniture grouping allowing multiple conversation areas. Dining tables were big enough to accommodate out large group. The kitchen was wonderful to work in and well equipped. Everyone was well satisfied with the sleeping accommodations and bathrooms. It included a laundry which at least some of our group used. We had a great time and everyone commented on what a good choice the lodge had been.

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cabin for our daughters wedding weekend. We had 15 people come up from our family alone. Thanks to the wonderful owners we were also allowed to invite the grooms family over from their cabin they had rented and had a big family BBQ. The cabin was very well-stocked with things we needed including a washer and dryer. Our five-year-old son had spent a good chunk of our road trip sick in the truck and we were able to wash everything from blankets to car seats with ease. There was more than enough room for everybody including the three dogs that were brought up. The cabin was very well-kept, it had very easy fishing access case i The cabin was very well-kept, it had very easy fishing access, and was in a great location so we were able to get to the mountain and into town easily. I would absolutely love to rent this place again

Great home for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was as advertised and worked well for our family of 8 adults and 6 children from the ages of 7 to 12. Everyone especially enjoyed the proximity of the river. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and we found that the bedrooms worked well. The large common area was a comfortable space for game playing, reading, and catching up wth each other.. The yard provided a great playground. Jeff, the caretaker, lives next door and couldn't have been friendlier. He even encouraged us to pick and enjoy his rasberries. Hope to return.
