We have stayed at the El Western numerous times with both family and friends and have never been disappointed. It is a great place to stay. The cabins, as well as the lodges, are tastefully decorated with just the right rustic Western touch. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The grounds are immaculately kept and the owners and staff are...

This is by far the nicest place to stay in Ennis. All the rooms and homes are clean, well done and comfortable. The best of all is the people who run it. The owners are some of the best people in the world and see to your every need.

Staying at the rustic El Western Cabins and Lodges was an exceptional experience! VERY clean and comfortable and provided the ambiance for utter relaxation. John & Kris go above and beyond in their meticulous care of the facilities. The acres of beautiful green grass, in and of itself, makes this a must stay. John's background as a retired Air Force...

We love this resort. Rooms are immaculate and well stocked with all you need. The owners and staff are very gracious and accommodating. The lodges are very private with wonderful views. We look forward to our annual vacation in the beautiful Madison Valley.

This was our second visit to the El Western. These are duplex cabins, small kitchen, small sitting area, large bathroom and a large bedroom. It was great for my husband and me. Location is wonderful. Can be a bit noisy because it's right on a busy highway, right outside of the town of Ennis. Cabins are spotless and super cute....

The place was as many described but unfortunately for me it was warm the day I arrived. The cabins don't have A/C and it was hot and miserable inside. I could have put up with that for a few hours until it cooled down later that night. What I really didn't like was that the free WiFi wasn't working. The...

Indeed we were having significant difficulties with our internet for a 24-48 hour period which we attempted to resolve. We learned shortly after your departure that it was a widespread but intermittent problem in the area, possibly also related to the lack of cell signal, which is usually very good in our location. Air conditioning is not common in our...

We spent just one night here, but what a comfortable night it was. We chose El Western after hearing from friends who are related to the owners. Of course their recommendations were good, but our experience exceeded even the great expectations we had. Kris, one of the owners, was a pleasure to deal with both before, during, and after our...

Thank you for your descriptive and detailed review! Being classified as "specialty lodging" in TripAdvisor can make travelers wonder exactly what to expect. We are so glad you enjoyed our little piece of Montana and it was a pleasure to meet you both.

The resort is a must visit on your way through to Yellowstone or on your way back. The lawns are the best in the valley and the employees are some of the best in the industry. It is very affordable and is pet friendly.
