An authentic Montana experience conjures up a vivid array of images. You picture scenic beauty - from inspiring peaks to rolling rivers to expansive landscapes unique to the Northwest.

Sage Lodge, located on the banks of the Yellowstone River just 35 minutes from Yellowstone National Park, offers the ultimate Montana luxury resort getaway. It’s an idyllic headquarters from where you can launch a day of fly fishing, hiking, biking, hunting, cross-country skiing - or any other endeavor that calls your name. And, your outdoor expeditions will culminate in serious indoor comfort. Our Lodge guestrooms and Ranch Houses deliver pure Montana ambience inspired by anglers, along with the coziness essential to any type of vacation. While at the Lodge, you can also retreat to our full-service spa and the Fireside Room for a drink and a Montana-inspired meal.

Sage Lodge is open all year with multiple activities available including fly fishing, mountain bike riding, hiking, or a relaxing day at the spa. The best fly fishing starts in June and ends October. That’s not to say you can’t fish year round if you are rugged enough and chew gravel for breakfast.


Sage Lodge delivers unbound access to the outdoor wonders of Montana, but we also cater to those who enjoy a range of creature comforts. Our amenities are extensive, so whatever you feel like doing, it’ll still feel like you’re getting away. When you’re not outside hiking, biking, or fishing, you can still treat your body well inside - whether in our fitness center, luxurious spa or outdoor hot tub.

Sage Lodge guestrooms make it extremely enticing to simply relax in front of the fireplace or stretch out on our cozy beds and crack open a few books (or spirits, for that matter). And, our Ranch Houses offer a full kitchen and large flat screen TV. It’s the perfect locale to gather and make plans for the day, or wind down and relive the adventures you just enjoyed. Then, when you’ve worked up an appetite, head to The Fireside Room or The Grill for an authentic Montana meal.

Consider Sage Lodge your personal retreat, as we can customize an escape from the everyday in any way imaginable.
