Timeless and beautifully maintained, the log cabins and lodges of El Western are a unique blend of authentic “Old West” style and modern comfort. Hand-peeled logs and knotty pine paneling with original furnishings compliment the tile baths, thick towels and fluffy pillows. For more than 60 years, travelers seeking a truly Montana experience with mountain vistas and impeccably maintained cabins and grounds have enjoyed the hospitality of El Western.

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.

There is always fishing on the Madison River. In early June, the lower parts of the river can be murky or run high from the snowmelt, but there are streams and lakes and areas we can point out and many days float trips are still great. Our cabins are perfect for father-daughter with separate sleeping areas or even large condo-size cabins. It is just an hour's drive to YNP and there are many other attractions within 30-45 minutes of Ennis. Give us a call and we can help you plan!

Hi Linda, While most of our cabins close for the season on October 15, we keep our Moose Lodge and Eagle's Loft Lodge open. These are houses that sleep 6 people. The Moose is a cozy 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath and the Eagle's Loft is a large 3 bedroom, 3 bath. Both are available for a minimum 3 night stay. Hunting has been very good this year and Ennis offers great support services for hunters including groceries, restaurants, gear, ammo and proximity to public land. Contact us for more information anytime!
