Overview

Montana Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This Sourdough Canyon lodge sits at the base of the Gallatin Mountains on the pristine waters of Sourdough Creek. The lodge is just 10 minutes from downtown Bozeman, Montana, 20 minutes from Bridger Bowl and world class trout fishing on the Gallatin, Madison and Yellowstone Rivers.

This luxury vacation lodge is an ideal one of a kind setting for a family or group vacation. This spectacular home along with the majority of the stunning furniture and custom cabinetry was built by the owner with loving attention to detail.

Nestled in secluded Sourdough Canyon, surrounded by old growth cottonwood and aspen groves, you will enjoy wildlife from every room, a giant back deck with two stocked trout ponds and the blue ribbon fishing of Sourdough Creek on the property.

The lodge sits just a few hundred yards from Bozeman Creek Trailhead which boasts miles of groomed cross country ski trails in winter and the best mountain biking and hiking in Gallatin Valley in the summer.

This lodge is comprised of 2 levels to maximize function and privacy. On the main level the Great Room enjoys nearly floor to ceiling southern facing windows with gorgeous light, a two story river rock fireplace and sumptuous leather furniture for relaxing by the fire or enjoying a movie. The large kitchen was designed with the chef in mind, with a six burner gas oven, ample counter space and every necessary appliance so guests may prepare gourmet meals with ease. Adjoining the Great Room and Kitchen is the Family Room with another TV and french doors opening onto the deck. One bedroom with full bathroom is on the main level with views of aspens and Sourdough Creek. Completing the main level is a generous mud room with plenty of storage for both winter and summer equipment and top of the line energy efficient washer and dryer.

Upstairs the master suite includes a large walk-in closet, king size bed, flat screen TV, windows overlooking the trout pond and creek, double shower head two person shower and giant tub with built in jets.

The other upstairs rooms consist of one suite with a king size bed and views of the entire Bridger Mountain range and the Bunk Room which sleeps 4 in handcrafted bunk beds. These rooms share a bathroom with double sinks and a large tub and shower.

This home comes with a property manager who will be there to assist you. She can provide you with a fully stocked kitchen upon your arrival and linen changes throughout your stay for an extra charge. Don't be afraid to ask her for anything else you may require!

About Bronwyn Hennessy

I'm a high end custom furniture, cabinet and home builder who loves to fish! I built this home to serve as the ideal retreat for fisherman and mountain bikers in summer, hunters in fall and skiers in winter.

Bronwyn Hennessy purchased this lodge in 2005

Why Bronwyn Hennessy chose Montana

I built this home in the perfect location, just 10 minutes drive to downtown Bozeman and 20 minutes to the Gallatin River and Bridger Bowl Ski Area, the lodge is secluded, private and serene.

What makes this lodge unique

While staying on the property my wife and I hike, ski, bike and fish without ever having to get in a car! Just sitting on the deck in the summer sipping wine and listening to the creek is a nice way to relax at the end of the day.

Wow, had no idea how spectacular this Lodge would prove to be... from ownership, to amenities, to the setting, our expectations we're wildly exceeded. Spent a week w/ 5 close friends taking advantage of fly-fishing, rafting, ATVing, hiking & this was an ideal stepping off point for all of those activities. The Lodge is unbelievably spacious, very well designed, the pictures don't do this place justice. The on-site trout provided the perfect setting to teach & practice casting and the wood-fired sauna was the perfect way to close the day after our activities. I've used VRBO extensively and this Lodge deserves Hall of Fame status, truly exceptional, we will be back, and not soon enough!

Beautiful Rustic Style Lodge with modern features

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a total of 6 nights. This is a beautiful house, with extensive space, very high ceilings, beautifully and carefully decorated in a rustic style. We loved the sound system. An IPad on the wall that allow you to control music with different volume in the kitchen, living room and patio. The internet worked well. The beds are super comfortable. They even had a crib, which worked perfectly for our 3 y/o. There is a floor heating system in the master bathroom. The lodge has everything you need for a perfect stay. It is 1,5 hours from the northern entrance to Yellowstone National Park and it's 20 minutes away from Bozeman airport and probably 10-15 minutes away from downtown Bozeman. We also loved the patio, the pond and the river.... we had the chance to explore the area a little bit and it is so beautiful.

The only issue we had was bugs, they looked like huge ants with wings, they basically invaded the dinner table (not for the food, as we did not leave visible food), there were just around our books, souvenirs he had bought, sweaters, jackets, and only downstairs. No bugs on the bedroom at all. Bugs appeard on the second day ion the evening. Overall we spent a couple of hours for two days trying to clean them up . The owner 's response was great, they came to spray and clean up that same day and the following day. We continue seeing ants in the cooking area, the rest of our stay, but we understand we were in an area where it could be difficult NOT to have bugs. We could handle an ant here and there.

Even with the bug issue we give our stay 5 stars, because it was a wonderful and unforgettable trip.

Lodge like feel, very quiet and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this house five nights and there were five adults and two children. The house is really more of a lodge, the construction is magnificent. Lots of fine details and because it was built so well, it's very quiet. We saw lots of wildlife, including a turkey who seemed very tame. He wandered around the back for a long time. We also saw lots of bunnies, deer, a muskrat in the pond, a kingfisher, and tons of birds. The guys fly fished in the pond but never caught more than about 5" whitefish out it, but had a lot of fun doing it. The grounds are very nice but could use some landscaping. The lawn was mowed but things were very overgrown elsewhere. It looked a bit neglected.

The kitchen was nice and had lots of pots and pans and other utensils you would need to cook meals, which we did almost every night. My only complaint was that there weren't enough bowls, we were constantly having to hand wash them.

The bedrooms again were very quiet, the linens and towels were very nice, however we all agreed that the beds were all too soft and the pillows were equally soft. It would be nice to have a variety of pillows instead of all the same kind (all very flat). But the rooms were decorated nicely and you can't beat the views.

One last note, there's no AC in the house and we were there during a particularly warm week. It's important to close the windows during the day and the blinds,and open them up when it cools down in the evenings. Thank heavens it cools down in the evening!

Owner's Response: Thank you for you review! I'm sorry to hear you found the lodge grounds neglected. They certainly aren't manicured in the style of a urban park. My husband and I landscaped the property to reflect the native plants of Montana, the lodge really is grounds are supposed to give the feel of being in the woods. Great to hear the lodge needs more bowls! Things get broken and need replacing from time to time. Because I have had other reviews that praise the comfort of our mattresses and bedding, I believe that your dislike is a matter of taste. Can win them all!

Perfect Montana Experience!

  • 5 of 5

It has been over a month since our very memorable trip to the Sourdough Canyon lodge and beautiful surrounding Montana and Yellowstone. Our family is still reminiscing about the trip and definitely planning to return -- maybe on an annual basis! Although our group only included adults this time . . .we are looking forward to bringing the entire family with young children and grandparents next time as the home would be comfortable with room for all. The pictures on the internet, although inviting, do not come close to capturing the elegance and open space in this home. Montana and Yellowstone are beautiful to tour, and the home seemed to reflect what is special about the area -- beautiful wood and stone with a rugged and simple elegance.

The lodge plan was very well thought out -- with private areas for all, and yet enough common living space to accommodate a large crowd. We particularly enjoyed making dinner in the well-appointed kitchen and then spending the evening in front of the fireplace (thanks Bronwyn for the extra firewood!).

Finally -- we especially appreciated Bronwyn's last minute scheduling for a change in our plans, so that we were able to return to the home for a couple of additional days on our return home from Wyoming.
