Lodging in the Madison Valley and Beyond

At The Tackle Shop we work with only the best lodging establishments in the Madison Valley and beyond.  Each of these properties we personally know the owners and managers, have worked with each for years and, all have been completely vetted.  Each has its own personality and is perfect in its own way.  Below we have short descriptions on each of the lodging options we recommend and what we feel they are best at.  We work with hotels, RV Parks, all inclusive lodges as well as private rental homes.  Let us help you design your perfect lodging and fishing vacation.  Our guides will pick you up from each of these lodging options each day and return you at the end.  

Madison Valley Hotels:

El Western

The premier hotel in the Madison Valley. The El Western has everything from quaint cabins near a creek to large multi bedroom lodges for larger groups. It has been a Montana Tradition from 1948 and the attention to detail is extraordinary. The perfect place to stay if you are a traveling fisherman, a family, or even that group that wants to experience all that Montana hospitality has to offer. Free Wi-Fi and only 1 mile out of town this is a sure bet. 

Lure Me Inn

A total of 8 quaint cabins with all the amenities just outside town. Each cabin has all that is needed including a stove for cooking, fridge and microwave. With either one or two queen-sized beds per cabin this is the perfect spot for any family or group. It is located in town and close to great restaurants and shops. Guests rave about how quiet, clean and perfect this is.

Silvertip Lodge and Motel

Located in town and walking distance from restaurants and the shop this is the perfect fisherman’s hotel. Great rooms and even a multi bedroom lodge for bigger groups. All the rooms are super clean, well appointed and quiet. When you’re more worried about your fishing and not ultra fancy lodging this is the place for you. We recommend this option every day and have not been disappointed yet.

Riverside Inn and Cabins:

With small remodeled cabins near the river and Lyons Park this is a great lodging option for any group or family. Very well maintained and conveniently located in town and walking distance to restaurants and shops. This is a great option for the groups that want a rustic cabin feel but still want to walk and grab a drink in town. They also have a small RV facility on property.  The entire property backs up to historic Lyons Park and the Madison River.  You can easily walk to fish.  

Fan Mt. Inn

Not your typical  budget roadside Inn and Motel. Updated rooms, great staff and a great location make this a perfect location for anyone visiting the Madison Valley. It is walking distance from shops and food and has a large parking area if your towing a drift boat. 

Sportsman’s Lodge

The historic Sportsman’s Lodge has been a Madison Valley staple for generations. With small individual cabins, a restaurant and bar on property this is the one stop shop for your vacation needs. The entire bar, restaurant has been completely rebuilt recently and new ownership has been updating all facets of this historic property. A good location for fisherman’s groups, small family groups and individual fisherman looking for a one stop shop for food and lodging.
