Those were the first words out of our 7-year old grandson's mouth when we opened the door and truer words could not have been spoken!! The lodge is very spacious, clean, and fully stocked. Pam and Steve provide everything you need for a wonderful vacation. We were lucky enough to spend a week there with our daughter and three young grandsons. We enjoyed shopping in Ennis, visiting Yellowstone National Park, visiting Virginia City, and best of all, relaxing...especially in the jacuzzi! The boys loved hiking around the property and especially playing by the river. Hoping to return with more of the family!!
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!
This property is perfect if you have a large group. We had a minimum of 6 and maximum of 8 with two dogs and we were very comfortable. The house is in the perfect location for sightseeing, within an hour you can to go West Yellowstone, passing Quake Lake and Hebgen Lake which is a beautiful drive. Another must see area is Wade and Cliff Lake, the water is turquoise and crystal clear, a perfect spot for fishing or floating. Just past the town of Ennis is Virginia City; it is completely dog friendly and like stepping back into the 1800s. Pam and Steve were excellent hosts! The property is fully stocked with everything you could imagine, we only had to bring food and drinks. The Madison River is walking distance from the house, but we choose to drive down to the day camping area a mile away, there are flat areas for your chairs and fishing was great. If you like to float, the Madison was a lot of fun! I completely endorse this property for vacation, it provided great memories for our family and friends!
This was the second summer that I spent a week at Elk View Lodge. This year, I invited my daughter's family (which included my 4 year old grandson) and some of my extended family members. We had a fabulous time, and the house met all our expectations. We had some enjoyable evenings grilling dinners on the screened-in porch and then relaxing in the hot tub and enjoying the views from the hot tub after days of hiking and exploring Yellowstone National Park, not to mention the fishing on the Madison River by family members. The house, very comfortable for all of us, is also conveniently located to Virginia City and Nevada City, which we had fun visiting. This was a special family vacation for us and one to remember! Thank you to the owners who were so friendly and accommodating.
We had the most relaxing and fun-filled week we could have imagined. The home was well-equiped with everything we needed to be comfortable and happy for the week. The views from the deck were so beautiful! The easy access to the Madison River was such a treat too. My 6-year-old fell in love with the river experience, and my 9-year-old loved the games that were provided and Wi Fi. We all loved the hot tub and the big open area for playing catch. The location was SUPER and we had a blast exploring Yellowstone, Ennis, Virginia City and Nevada City. Thank you for providing us with such a wonderful getaway for our family! We will be back!
I stayed at Elk View Lodge in July, 2011. It is in a beautiful location with magnificent views all around, including the Madison River in back. I found this home spacious, well-appointed and meticulously clean. The beds were comfortable, and the kitchen had everything that was needed to prepare and eat meals. I have already made another reservation to stay at Elk View Lodge with my family in summer 2012. The location is excellent (easy to get to Yellowstone) and the views breathtaking. I would not hesitate to recommend this location.
