We had our wedding at Butler Creek Lodge in June. It is truly breathtaking property and I couldn’t imagine a more perfect setting for the biggest day of our lives. Dorinda and Dennis are the kindest hosts you could imagine. They made us feel very welcome and it was truly a pleasure to get to know them over the course of the weekend. We’re extremely grateful we were able to celebrate our marriage in such a beautiful place. This is Montana at its finest. We’re already talking about booking the lodge for our anniversary.

It is Truly Breath-Taking Property

Our family of 12 had plenty of room and our every wish fulfilled at Butler Creek Lodge. Dorinda and Dennis are those rare hosts who really want you to be as comfortable as they are! From coffee and muffins for 1st mornings’ breakfast to DVD’s for the kids to beautifully landscaped grounds with comfy chairs to enjoy the sunsets, this is a lovely home in every way. This is a super well-supplied kitchen! It is convenient to downtown Missoula yet private and quiet in typical Montana country.

Graduation Celebration at Butler Creek Lodge
Wow! What a find! We celebrated our daughters college graduation from the University of Montana and our entire family stayed at the lodge. Dorinda and Dennis are the most wonderful hosts and we wished we could have stayed longer. We had 16 guests and also had additional guests for the Grad Party. Perfect for this occasion and we did not have to stay in hotels separate from one another and did not have eat out at every meal. There was nothing we wanted or needed as the lodge and hosts had it ALL! I want to have an event in Missoula just so we can go back. And the price was cheaper than a hotel!

Graduation Celebration at Butler Creek Lodge

This review is long overdue! My husband and I got married at Butler Creek Lodge in August 2018. I fell in love with the venue the moment we arrived to tour it and continued to fall more and more in love every time we went back to take measurements, plan the layout etc. It was the most perfect venue for our little enchanted forest wedding. Dorinda was such a joy to work with and the venue itself is stunning. The lodge was stunning and rustic and welcoming and the perfect place to house our wedding party and their spouses. The grounds are a wonderful, green and serene location and once you’re there you’d have no idea you’re just a few miles out of town. It feels like its own little world, quiet and peaceful. Dorinda also allowed us to take our engagement photos there the winter before our wedding. I fully intend to rent out the lodge again for something in the future…not sure what but the second I have another need to rent out a large space like that, Dorinda will be my first call! I loved the soft, beautifully green lawns and the stunning lodge kitchen with large windows looking over the grounds. The beds were so perfectly soft and downright indulgent. One of the best nights of sleep I’ve had! The other wonderful thing about renting the lodge was that Dorinda was so supportive of all our decoration ideas and of not forcing us to call it a night before we were ready to stop celebrating our nuptials! We had our rehearsal dinner there the night before the wedding, the ceremony on the lower-most lawn and the reception through all 3 lawns. Thank you Dorinda for making our wedding day the perfect fairy tale I’d hoped it would be!

Perfect.
The house was awesome. The owners were so nice. We loved the place. Wish we had more time to spend and enjoy the house. It is well worth the price. It is a place that I will always go back to if I ever go back to Missoula.

Awesome service. Great location. Surreal feel. Fair price. If you’re in Missoula and don’t want the normal motel, this is the place. A fast drive out of town and it seems like ages. Highly recommend. Will not disappoint.

Missoula Trip

While on a recent visit to Missoula, MT we stayed at the Butler Creek Lodge. We were on a fly fishing trip. It was very comfortable, beds were great. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. The setting was very pretty.

A friend and I booked Butler Creek Lodge for the first 4 nights of our Montana fly fishing trip. The owner’s sister Dorinda, and her husband Dennis have recently taken over management of the Lodge and are doing a fantastic job!

The Lodge was full and so we were accommodated in a self-contained apartment within the main house. The apartment was ideal for our needs, consisting of 2 bedrooms, shower room, kitchen and living area; and also had a covered patio area looking out over the gardens.

The gardens are well looked after and very peaceful, and you can find yourself sharing your coffee with a couple of grazing deer.

Dorinda and Dennis were a lovely couple who couldn’t do enough for you, without making you feel as if you were being crowded or watched. The breakfasts were superb and the choice extensive.

I feel the Lodge was perfectly located. Only 10 minutes from the airport, but well away from the flight path so the tranquility was not affected. Only 10-15 minutes from downtown Missoula, and located about halfway between two of the main National Parks, Yellowstone and Glacier.

If you are a fisherman then you’re in for a treat! The Bitterroot, Clark Fork, Rock Creek and our favourite, the Blackfoot river are all only a short drive away,

We enjoyed our stay so much that we booked in for the last 3 nights of our 2-week fly drive fishing tour as we couldn’t leave without fishing the Blackfoot one last time. Coming back to Butler Creek was much like coming home.

Highly recommended.
