My 2 nephews (ages 8 and 4), my son (8 years old) and I stayed at the River’s Bend Lodge for a week the end of July in 2012. Having grown up in Plentywood and Helena, Montana I want my son and nephews to be able to experience Montana, this is the second year we have stayed at River’s Bend and it will not be our last! The hosts, Cindy and Soren were extremely helpful in telling us about the local area, and things to do. The breakfasts and dinners we ate at the lodge were always fantastic. The rooms and common areas were exceptionally clean and nicely decorated to give you that “country cabin” homey feeling; the beds are wonderful (I’ve never slept so well). The views from the deck on the river are breath taking and always changing with an abundance of wildlife, Golden and Bald Eagles, White Pelicans, Beaver, Whitetail and Mule deer are daily occurrences. Soren took the boys fishing to Pelican Point one day (they wanted to go every day after) each of them caught a Perch or two that they brought back. Soren showed the boys how to clean and skin the fish, and then cooked them for dinner. Mmmm good. Osprey, many waterfowl, River Otters, Martins, Big Horn Sheep, and a Weasel were some of the other wildlife we observed while floating the river. We floated the river 2 days once from Mid Canyon Access and once from the Deerborn Access back to the lodge, the boys and I love the river and floating it was peaceful and relaxing. We also climbed Tower Rock, Tower Rock State Park, an original campsite of the Lewis and Clark Expedition is within easy walking distance of the Lodge. The boys and I spent a day, doing the Gates of the Mountain boat tour and visiting the State Capital; a day at the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, and the Charles Russell l Museum (these were more for Mom), so the next day we went to the Montana State Fair. Thank you, Cindy and Soren for letting us stay with you at your wonderful Bed and Breakfast and making us feel at home.

Overall had a wonderful stay. Some key points: Breakfast prepared by host were fantastic and very tasty. Host were very welcoming, they made their home our home. We had full access to all the kitchen amenities. Everything was very clean (bathroom, bedroom, kitchen). Can't emphasize enough how friendly and helpful both our hosts were. Helped us book a hotel close to the airport with shuttle service. Offered advice on fishing and sight-seeing. Offered fantastic views of the Missouri river off their back deck. Great place to congregate early in the day, and in the early evening after a long day of fishing, hiking! Sit back, put your feet up on the rail and enjoy yourself. They are located in a beautiful part of Montana, very centrally located so trips to Glacier Natl Park and Yellowstone are within a few hours drive! The valley they are located in alone is worth the trip. Very scenic and peaceful.

As part of my bucket list, I wanted to do a fly fishing trip to Montana. I highly recommend River's Bend Lodge. It has a lovely setting that is on the river, very comfortable and the rooms are decorated with tasteful fishing decor. Cindy and Soren are wonderful hosts and I felt like I made some new friends. They are also excellent cooks and the breakfasts that they prepared was outstanding. My first fly fishing trip to Montana was awesome and they made it extra special. I will definitely take another trip there and stay at River's Bend!
