Destination Montana: Marry on an Exclusive Island in a Rocky Mountain Lake, SALMON LAKE, Mont. When couples consider a romantic island wedding, the Rocky Mountains probably don’t come to mind perhaps they should.
The Montana Island Lodge. For the past several years, couples have been discovering the luxurious, intimate and romantic setting afforded by the Montana Island Lodge, located 50 miles northeast of Missoula, south of Glacier National Park and just west of the Bob Marshall Wilderness.
Wedding parties of up to 25 can be accommodated overnight in the 11 guest rooms and suites of this 18,000 sq. ft. contemporary log and stone mansion. The Montana Island Lodge provides customized gourmet dinners for 50, and full receptions (with planning help) for 125, with customized rates and packages based on the number of nights and guests, menus and other amenities requested.
All to Yourself, and Surrounded by Salmon Lake. Speaking of amenities, it may be that privacy is the one luxury wedding parties appreciate most, according to general manager Jane Fisher. The lodge is available exclusively to only one group at a time. And while we’re happy to pamper our guests with 24/7 butler and concierge services, they can choose to vote the staff off the island and be entirely alone.
That way, once the party is over and wedding guests have floated back to the mainland, the lodge becomes an incomparable place for a honeymoon.
A Private Playground for Family and Guests. Before or after the nuptials, guests are welcome to take to the lake in canoes, paddleboats or hydrobikes, or simply to jump in for a swim or soak in an outdoor Jacuzzi. A pontoon boat is available for sunset cruises. And a bonfire deck by the water’s edge is the perfect place for campfire stories and late-night s’mores.
Recreational activities including golf, fly-fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking and white-water rafting are only minutes away.
Spacious Guest Rooms and Impeccable Service. Couples and their family and guests will be treated to a true mountain resort experience. Luxury accommodations showcase incredible views of Salmon Lake and the surrounding backcountry from every room, and include satellite television, sliding glass doors to outside decks, and private baths with such fine details as bathrobes and hair dryers.
From the moment guests arrive, they have the complete attention of an expert staff. After being transported by private boat to the island, wedding groups start and end each day at their own pace, in a relaxing, tranquil environment, for a remarkable sense of freedom and fun. Says Fisher, it’s unlike any wedding destination in the west. And it’s right here in western Montana.
Customized Package Pricing. Rates are based on availability, type of group, length of stay, meals and event requirements. Contact Jane Fisher (888) 773-2643 or jane@MontanaIslandLodge.com, she’ll put together a proposal customized for specific event times and needs.
It’s just one of many features that help wedding planners and families enjoy the personal attention of an experienced and dedicated facility staff.
