Looking out at the majestic Emigrant Peak and its green and gold grasslands, the Lodge blends the raw and rugged beauty of Paradise Valley with distinctive Montana hospitality. The expansiveness of Montana's unspoiled terrain is right outside your door for hiking, horseback riding, biking, fishing, and so much more. All conveniently located just 50 minutes from Bozeman.

Sage Lodge offers 50 rustically elegant guestrooms, including 34 lodge accommodations and four stand-alone Ranch Houses with four guestrooms each.
