BRIEF DESCRIPTION: T Bar M Lodge offers rustic elegance near the banks of the Madison River, between Ennis and West Yellowstone, Montana. Guests can fish the Madison, hike in the Gravelly and Madison Mountains, or take a day trip to Yellowstone. The home is very comfortably appointed with high-end Western décor and Indian rugs. On twenty acres with lots of privacy.
BEDROOMS AND BATHS: The lodge has three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The main level master has a beautiful Old Hickory queen bed and a private bath with two sinks and a tub shower. The second master bedroom is upstairs and has an iron king size bed and attached bath with a double vanity and a tub shower. This bath also attaches to the third bedroom, with a queen under twin bunk bed. There is also a half bath on the main level, just off the living room.
KITCHEN: The kitchen is set up for cooks who like to be part of the action. It’s open to the rest of the living area and the four burner gas stove is set in an island facing the livingroom. There is a kitchen bar counter for anyone wanting to coach the cook, and there’s also a great happy hour bar, complete with a log top that has an old fly rod set into it! There is also a charcoal barbecue for your outdoor grilling. Off the kitchen is a full laundry room with washer and dryer.
DINING AREA: There’s a dining table that will seat six comfortably. Just a few feet away is the kitchen bar, which seats two, and if you have a crowd two more can be seated at the happy hour bar.
LIVING ROOM: The living room is really a great room, with a two story river rock fireplace and is open to the loft. The stunning log work and 2 story rock fireplace are what first grab you, and the bull elk mount over the fireplace and the elk antler chandelier add even more Western feel. Around the fireplace there’s a cozy sitting area with all leather furniture and there’s a great stereo system and TV, equipped with CD and DVD players as well as an iPod dock. The living room opens to the wonderful front porch. There is an additional sitting area, in a cozy loft over the great room. It’s a great place to take a book, and there’s a desk set up here as well.
SETTING, ACREAGE, AND VIEWS: T Bar M Lodge is situated on 20 acres on the east side of the Madison River, about 15 miles south of the wonderful small Western town of Ennis, and about 55 miles to West Yellowstone in the other direction. You have incredible sweeping views of two mountain ranges, and a short walk further down your gravel lane takes you to a picnic spot and private walk/wade entry to the Madison River. Put-in locations for boats are just a few miles away at Ruby Creek and McAtee Bridge. It’s a great location!
OUTDOOR AMENITIES: A long deck on the east side of the house is the place to watch the sunrise over the Madison Mountains with a cup of coffee, and to see the evening colors on the hills as the sun sets. The Madisons are a truly stunning sight any time of day, so there are four big rocking chairs waiting for you there.
ACTIVITIES NEARBY: Besides fishing on the Madison, there’s horseback riding nearby, hiking in the two mountain ranges, exploring at the historic towns of Virginia and Nevada City, tours of Yellowstone National Park (just under an hour away), and everything that the fun little town of Ennis has to offer.
CLOSEST TOWN AND AIRPORT: You are about 15 minutes to Ennis and about an hour to Bozeman’s Gallatin Field Airport.
Additional amenities include: less than 30 min to town, 45 minutes to yellowstone park, on 20 or more acres, ironing board, washer & dryer, considered with approval & fee....Read more
Beautiful home and setting, rodent problem would prevent me from staying again.

The home was incredible in every way except for the issue with mice. Mice turds were in the silverware drawer 3 out of our 4 mornings. We loved the setting and wildlife and even the home, but the rodent issue is major for us. Our last night there a mouse was running all around living room and kitchen and gnawed on a little block of poison that was out in the middle of the floor. I would love to recommend this place to others but the rodent issue was too major.

Our family of 6 (and a dog) stayed at the T Bar M Lodge for one week in august. The Lodge seems to be nearly new and is beautifully decorated in a rustic, western way. The kitchen is made for people who like to cook. Nice pots and pans, knives, small electrical appliances. Complete with a dishwasher and a laundry room with a new washer and dryer. There is an outdoor grill (charcoal and lighter fluid provided). Paper towels, TP, garbage bags, dish soap, laundry soap and fabric softener all provided. There was an impressive selection of staple goods in the pantry available for our use.
The bedrooms and baths were roomy and comfortable with fresh linens including plenty of extra bath towels.
There is a large entertainment center. Also, a collection of Dvd's and satellite TV. Wi-Fi was appreciated by those of us who needed to check in at the office. The lodge also offers a large collection of books to read.
During our stay in Montana we visited Yellowstone Park, Ennis, and Ennis Lake, Virginia City, floated and fished the Madison River, hiked local trails. The Lodge is centrally located to all of these spots.
Although not located in a forest, T Bar M does have beautiful views, and plenty of wildlife to see including antelope, Deer, Black Bear and Osprey. From the front porch you see the Madison/Gallatin Mountain Range and from the back deck you see the Gravelly Mountain Range.
