Overview

About the property

Secluded Riverfront Lodge, 8 Bedrooms, 6 baths + Bunk House (Sleeps 30-40)

Montana River Lodge is a wonderfully inspiring and relaxing facility available to couples, families, weddings, fishing or corporate groups by reservation. We are located on 25 acres of private Clark Fork River frontage completely surrounded by hundreds of acres of gated state forest. A wide array of activities and an opportunity to enjoy the wonderful beauty of Western Montana awaits you. We are located just downstream from the best whitewater rafting in Montana. The world famous "Alberton Gorge" is a thrilling class 3, ten mile stretch of big waves, sandy beaches, and amazing scenery. The lodge overlooks a spectacular river setting with great fishing, swimming, volleyball, horseshoes, sports field, and a huge bonfire area.

Fishing at the lodge uniquely combines terrific trout size in good numbers and very low fishing pressure. Our easement provides private access to over two miles of rarely fished trophy trout stream. Rainbow, Cutthroat, Brown, and Bull trout average 15 to 20 inches with some over ten pounds.

The beach has several sandbars, a perfect spot to sunbathe while the kids play in the river. Have you ever tried gold panning? The beach has some 'color' that is fun to swirl in a pan and gives you the feeling of a 'gold rush'. Eagles and osprey often soar over the river pool formed by the cliffs on the shore across from the lodge. Watch them swoop down on an unsuspecting trout.

The open hillsides on the mountains across the river provide opportunities to see deer and elk through a spotting scope or binoculars. Get a magnified view of the eagles and osprey as they perch in the trees or in nearby nests. We are surrounded by thousands of acres of forest with numerous mountain lakes. Endless miles of trails and roads provide opportunity for hiking or riding bikes and atvs. The river provides miles of amazing fishing and floating pleasure. Located just 40 miles west of Missoula, we provide a spacious, secluded, and private atmosphere for those looking to get away or just relax in an enviorrnment of cozy comfort. Let us know how we can make your vacation a truly memorable experience.

About The Owner

We designed and built the lodge in 2002 and operated a teen home for 9 years. In our design and western decor we have incorporated our interest in fishing, hunting and the Montana outdoor experience. We enjoy talking with our guests to offer suggestions about the many area attractions and adventures that may enhance their stay.

The Owner purchased this lodge in 2002

Why The Owner chose Montana

While floating the river one day, we found this amazing setting just downstream from the famous Alberton Gorge whitewater canyon. The undeveloped site was completely surrounded by hundreds of acres of state forest offering the ultimate in privacy in our end of road location. The forest around us is closed to automotive use, resulting in a nature preserve offering quiet walks, mountain biking, horseback riding, snowshoeing, or x-country skiing. The scenic setting is simply stunning. Guests repeatedly tell us the views of the river and mountains result in relaxation and rejuvenation. We watch eagles and osprey gliding over the river from our deck daily. The river allows an amazing assortment of water sports including fishing, rafting, kayaking, swimming, tubing, and boating. The natural flat below the lodge made a perfect area for our sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits, sports field, bath house, and bonfire ring. The large lawn areas overlooking the river are available for events such as outdoor weddings.

What makes this lodge unique

There is a fruit orchard and berry patch with raspberries and strawberries for snacking. We have several tubes and life jackets for enjoying the river. There is a 14 foot self-bailing raft, float tubes, fly rods and a drift boat available for rental.

Our lodge is located 40 miles from Missoula, at the Tarkio Exit 61, about 1 mile off of I-90 on the Clark Fork River. There is excellent fishing on our property and on the river above and below us. The Alberton Gorge is a very popular class 3 whitewater stretch that ends just upstream from the lodge. A thrilling ride awaits the adventurer on a raft ,kayak, or bogieboard. The section of river from the lodge downriver is perfect for gentle floating on a raft, canoeing or tubing. We are surrounded by state and national forest lands, and there are numerous trails for hiking, horseback riding, mountain bikes, ATVs or even snowshoeing in the winter. Our beach is the ultimate swimming hole or the pefect place for a sunny afternoon nap. Mountain bikes are available at Lookout Pass for touring the famous Hiawatha Trail thru tunnels and over trestles. The National Bison Range is a favorite day trip. The nearby historic Jesuit Mission has amazing frescos and an informative history of early mission work among the local native tribes. But above all else, the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery is the highlight of all these activities.
