Cute little cozy cabins with everything you need, situated amongst the most beautiful backdrop. Love the family who runs the hotel and their sweet dog who lounges in the lobby area. Plenty of open space to walk, jog, and just get outside. The little town of Ennis is so quaint and the people are friendly and kind. Definitely worth a stop.

We very much enjoyed our short stay in the Moose Lodge. It is everything you would expect in a quaint town like Ennis. Unfortunately, we did not have the opportunity to meet the owners, perhaps because we were there off season when the El Western scales back operations & only offers 2 cabins for guests. I must say I was a bit dismayed that the employee handling our check in was not the friendliest person we encountered on our road trip, almost like she felt put-out by having 2 guests on property. In addition, we were asked about food allergies prior to arrival (apparently they normally provide some sort of snacks in the cabin); we received nothing upon arrival. It would be nice to have a little welcome basket in the kitchen, perhaps with a small pack of coffee or something.
Be prepared to provision prior to arrival. Also surprised that no one checked on us during our stay or followed up with how we enjoyed ourselves on check out day.

We are really glad you enjoyed your stay in the Moose Lodge. When the rest of our property closes for the winter, it’s great to have a cozy log house for our guests. Although it is a quieter time, we have personnel available on property and by phone 24 hours a day for any questions or needs you may have during your stay.
Whether you arrive in the busiest or quietest time of year, we always strive to provide a warm welcome. Our manager was surprised you were unsatisfied as she had enjoyed visiting with you as you checked in. We are sorry it did not meet your expectations for friendliness! Our standard services include daily housekeeping, but we do not make regular checks on folks staying with us or provide a snack on arrival service – perhaps there was some confusion with another property.
We hope you will come back to our beautiful part of Montana again soon and have another great stay in the Moose Lodge!

We had not been to Ennis in decades so decided to stay after a brief jaunt to Yellowstone. The El Western is a great little spot--cozy cabins and dog friendly. The coffee in the lobby (there is no coffee maker in the cabins) is exceptional! It is clean--and vintage..the heat is old fashioned. The grounds are nice--take a walk down to the meadow and you might spot a muskrat. Friendly people. Our only concern was we were booked for one night, and left for breakfast, and when we came back, one of the beds was clearly made up, but not the other room. It was odd for cleaning staff to be in there when we had not checked out. Mentioned it to the owner and she said she would check into it, and agreed it was odd! But all in all, a great little spot in a tiny little town!

Thanks for posting - nice to hear from you! Glad you enjoyed our office coffee. If you prefer to brew your own, the majority of our cabins have kitchens with coffeemakers and filters for your use.

The mystery of why the room was partly cleaned before you checked out was not so odd, after all. Not every guest stops by the office to return their keys. Seeing no car, our housekeeper knocked at your cabin and found no personal items whatsoever in the cabin. She assumed, mistakenly, you had checked out and began cleaning. After your final departure, she returned to finish. Our apologies for any concern it may have caused you.

First time visit in Ennis but it won't be the last. Roll into town early (1145) and stopped by to ask for check in time; it's normally 3:00 PM but they let us have it by 1:00 PM, They would have given it us if it was ready when we stopped ... you gotta love the small town friendly feel ... I love Montana period.

As others before has commented, the cabin we stayed at are rustic, clean, beautiful, and comfortable.

IMHO, it's a must try place to stay esp. if you have a 4-legged family member. It's a dog-friendly place and our Karelian Bear Dog Thor had a wonderful time exploring the grounds.

We're definitely coming back.

To the owners, keep up the excellent work. Cheers!

So glad you all and Thor had a great stay. We have heard rumors that dogs think our lawns are worth a visit, especially with all the rabbits and deer to check on.

We were passing through Montana and decided to stop at Ennis. We stopped at El Western and asked about availability for the night. The proprietors greeted us and offered us a cabin at a great rate for the night. We stayed in Cabin #27. Their property straddles the road. We stayed in a cabin mountainside. The grounds are meticulously kept. The cabin is updated and clean. The front porch was appreciated with such beautiful surroundings to take in. They have free wifi too! The place is charming!! The Hauck's are wonderful hosts! Do not miss the opportunity to stay here!

Room Tip: They offer 2 BR 2 Bath cabins for families.
