But some of the things that mattered most back then are still important today; like delicious, hearty meals, and the staff’s friendly, laid-back attitude.
Unique Features: Two miles of the Blue Ribbon Gallatin River, made famous as the setting for the fishing scenes in the movie “A River Runs Through It,” literally run through the property!
