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 marvelled 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.
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.
Diana and David Magistrelli purchased this lodge in 2002
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.
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your gorgeous cabin. We had everything we could possibly need (it definitely made us want to stay longer, in fact, all of us didn't want to go home). Not to mention the stunning view and all the wildlife we go to see in the early morning. Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality and we can only hope to find the time to visit again and there is absolutely nothing we'd wish to change about this trip.
We stayed for a week in the beginning of August 2013 and I cannot say enough about the lodge. First, Dave and Diana are amazing hosts and you don't have to worry about a thing. They took such good care of all of us. Everything was BETTER than described! There were antelope grazing and running through the property and ever so beautiful to watch. The Madison River runs right through the property as well. We ran out of time to fish, but it's one of the best fly fishing rivers in the United States, if not the best. The rooms were comfy and we had a nice fire a few nights in the great room. Yellowstone is not far away and so worth the time to enjoy. We also did some zip lining and whitewater rafting not too far away. But the best part, IMO, is the peace and quiet, the start lit nights, and being literally surrounded by the mountains.
I cannot give this any higher marks. We cannot wait to go back again!!!!!!!!!
Cabins and view are amazing, we saw eagles, mule deer, mountain goats, antelope and even a fox. The only real issue is the owners stay at the property with you. Almost like having a baby sitter. Owner even walked in our room unannounced while my husband was still in bed.
The cabin and view were amazing. We had a wonderful time, we saw mule deer, bald eagles, mountain goats and antelope. The only down part was that the owners stay in the property with you. Almost like having a baby sitter. Owner even walked in our room unannounced while my husband was still in bed.
This was perfect! Everything that we had expected and more. The property was more secluded than we expected (get a 4 wheel drive) but that just added to the charm. We saw antelope and mountain goat while were there. While we didn't have much luck fishing, the access to the Madison was easy and there were many options to try other fishing holes nearby. Gods country for sure! Thank you for providing a perfect location for our family to enjoy the area and Yellowstone.
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.
