Very Good8.0
Overall the hotel is very nice I enjoyed my stay there. Room is clean and well-appointed and the staff was very friendly. The area around the hotel can't be beat plenty of hiking trails in just 48 miles to Yellowstone.

We stayed in one of the riverside rooms - while modest, it was clean and cozy and we slept with the window open with the river lulling us to sleep. So peaceful. Would stay here again should we visit Big Sky another time!

Great View at Raindow Ranch Lodge
The Rainbow Ranch was lovely. Great room with a wonderful view of the river. It was a great touch having cookies waiting for us in the room.

Cozy room with beautiful river view
Spent 2 nights here in a comfy riverside room. The ambiance is amazing with the Gallatin River flowing right outside the door. Dog-friendly room with plenty of room for her dog bed, and a nice grassy area to walk in. Great insulation, couldn't hear our neighbors at all.
