FOR GUESTS COMING FROM OUT-OF-STATE

We are open and taking reservations!  The governor has announced that the 14-day quarantine for out-of-state visitors will expire June 1.  This means visitors will be able to move about freely and fully enjoy everything Southwest Montana has to offer!

FOR GUESTS WHO BOOKED STAYS PRIOR TO THE PANDEMIC

We are here to help!  We have been very flexible with the uncertainties and disruptions the virus has caused.  Please contact us if you are having concerns about your stay or your ability to travel and we can discuss moving your dates, extending your cancellation window, and more.

CURRENT STATUS AS OF MAY 19:  We are currently in Phase 1 of our reopening with Phase 2 beginning June 1.  Social distancing must continue to be vigilantly observed anywhere you go.  Bars, breweries, restaurants, casinos, gyms, and theaters are currently open at their own discretion at a maximum 50% capacity and will be observing strict cleaning and physical distancing protocols; capacities will increase to 75% in Phase 2.  Bars are required to close at 11:30pm and will not be offering counter seating.  Take out continues to be an easy and widely available option.  Retail shops and pools are also open with similar cleaning and distancing requirements as restaurants.  Guided services, such as fishing, are allowed as long as a waiver is signed.

Please be considerate of the many freedoms you're enjoying while you're here.  Trailheads and fishing access sites have a habit of getting crowded, especially around the Bozeman area.  We want these to remain open during this uncertain time, so consider making backup plans for hikes and fishing spots in case your spot of choice is too crowded.

Yellowstone National Park is partially open as of May 18.  The south (Jackson) and east (Cody) entrances in Wyoming are the only gates open at this time with the Montana gates (Gardiner and West Yellowstone) slated to open June 1.  Visitors are currently able to drive the lower loop through Old Faithful, Madison, Norris, Canyon, and along the west shore of Yellowstone Lake.  Roads in the northern portion of the park will remain closed (Mammoth, Tower Junction, Lamar Valley, Cooke City) until the June 1 opening of the North and West gates.  Trails and boardwalks will be open where accessible, as well as some stores and restrooms.  More details about restaurants and shops will be forthcoming as concessionaires submit mitigation plans.  This will be an amazing and unique time to visit Yellowstone and experience it as it was 30 years ago with fewer people, fewer services, and more wildlife!
