At The Tackle Shop we work with only the best lodging establishments in the Madison Valley and beyond.  Each of these properties we personally know the owners and managers, have worked with each for years and, all have been completely vetted.  Each has its own personality and is perfect in its own way.  Below we have short descriptions on each of the lodging options we recommend and what we feel they are best at.  We work with hotels, RV Parks, all inclusive lodges as well as private rental homes.  Let us help you design your perfect lodging and fishing vacation.  Our guides will pick you up from each of these lodging options each day and return you at the end.  

Lake Shore Cabins--The perfect out of town but not out of the way Lodging

Located Just out of town in McAlllister Montana and right on Ennis Lake.  Lake Shore Cabins provide the quiet relaxing atmosphere on the lake our guests desire while being just a short ride to town and restaurants.  A multitude of cabin options on the lake from small 1 bedroom options to much larger cabins adequate for the entire family.  The best part about the Lake Shore Cabins is the location.  Sit on the porch in the evenings and watch the sun go down over Ennis Lake after a great day on the water.  This is our premier lodging option.  Give us a call about availability and ask about stay and guided fishing packages.
