We stayed in the Granite cabin 2 nights over Thanksgiving weekend 2016. The cabin was clean and very comfortable. The bed and linens were top quality, and the hot tub was private with a good temperature. This was a mini-honeymoon for us, and we were not bothered by anything during our stay. I would highly recommend Rye Creek Lodge to... More

Everything was perfect. An extremely well kept & clean lodge. I would love to return to Rye Creek Lodge in the future. The location is very scenic & quiet. It was just a short drive to Darby. We especially enjoyed the fireplace.

We bookended our travel at Rye Creek Lodge staying the first night in the Aspen Cabin and the second in the Ponderosa. We hadn't experienced the night stars away from city lights in several years.

Our family of four stayed at the Granite Cabin at Rye Creek Lodge in Darby MT. It was the highlight of a spectacular trip across the west. We had plenty of room, a lovely view and porch, laundry facilities and very friendly and accomodating staff to address our every need. Mike Nelson was fantastic and helpful in providing hiking advice,... More

Absolutely lovely! Clean, new and tastefully done with total seclusion from other guests. Amazing views, nice (and clean) hot tub, star gazing and a romantic place to stay or get away that won't break the bank! Very nice and easy phone check in for late arrival. My only complaint was no coffee creamer. Stayed in the Sapphire cabin

We had a great stay at Rye Creek Lodge. The cabin was beautiful, clean, and cozy and we were able to see a herd of about 150 elk. It is just far enough away from Missoula to get out of town yet not to far. I would highly recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Amid millions of acres of pristine wilderness, this first class Montana ranch offers a spectacular vacation hideaway. Activities include trail riding, wilderness hiking, world class fly fishing, fly casting lessons, white water rafting, and ATV rides. Fly fishing is rewarding on the Bitterroot, Selway, Salmon and Big Hole Rivers or the many nearby alpine lakes. For a slower pace, relax on your cabin's front porch and view wildlife or visit the hot springs. Our luxury hand-hewn log cabins are nestled in a beautiful natural setting and offer excellent privacy. Cabins are generously distanced from each other by 100 yards or more. Each luxury log cabin has a river rock fireplace, modern kitchen, laundry facilities, and a private outdoor hot tub. Rye Creek Lodge is located at the southern end of the scenic Bitterroot Valley in western Montana. Rye Creek meanders through 120 acres, providing over a mile of prime habitat for moose, elk and deer. Several ponds create an oasis in the "high country" of Montana. Granite outcroppings, large ponderosa and numerous aspen provide close-up views while Trapper Peak looms overhead. The Bitterroot Valley on the western Montana/Idaho border is a place of serenity, natural beauty and wonder in all four seasons. In spring, the meadows come to life with wildflowers and the air is fresh with new beginnings. In summer, the sun-filled days are perfect for fly fishing, horseback riding, scenic float trips, hiking and cycling. The Bitterroot Mountains in the fall are a dazzling sight with bright blue skies and quaking aspen shimmering in the sun ... Followed by crisp, cool evenings. Our mild winters are exhilarating with the beautiful quiet of fresh powder mornings, the breathtaking view of the Bitterroot Range panoramas and the thrill of Alpine and Nordic skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing through unspoiled snow-covered wilderness. Spend your next Montana vacation at Rye Creek Lodge. Make your reservations today.... ... more   less
