Hope you’re having a great Wednesday!
We’ve been relaxing in Fort Smith, Montana. What a BEAUTIFUL place. Fort Smith is a small town in Southern Montana, most of which is Native American reservation land. It’s beautiful, quiet, simple.
I was not expecting too much when hubby said we were going to be staying at a fly-fishing lodge. We stayed at the Kingfisher Lodge, and I was pleasantly surprised by how wonderful a fly-fishing lodge could be! This one was not only beautiful, it was well-run, friendly, and the food was some of the best we’ve ever had – which is saying alot, as we’ve sampled some great restaurants on our travels!
The Kingfisher’s Lodge was hard to find. It is on Indian Reservation, so it is not mapped on any GPS, AND, most of the streets do not have street signs. Somehow, we did make our way there, with several directions from the locals and good old-fashioned luck. PLUS, there is no cell phone coverage in the city. Even the locals will tell you, there are a few spots around town that you “might” get cell phone coverage – usually higher up the mountain, on a ridge, etc.
Here’s the main lodge, a central place for the grounds, where all the meals are prepared, and a central gathering place for everyone.
The front porch is so inviting!
As part of your stay, 3 meals are included. Breakfast at 7:00AM, a bag lunch & snacks packed for you to take on your fly-fishing excursion, and then a wonderful gourmet dinner. When I say gourmet, I mean GOURMET. Some of the best meals we’ve had EVER!
The chefs! You don’t have to have a big poufy hat to create the most delish meals! I wish I had whipped out my phone and taken a picture of our meals, but eating and enjoying every single delicious morsel was at the forefront of my mind!
Everyone is welcoming, including the several dogs that live on the property. This one loves to play ball, and she’ll let you know it!
And since this is a fashion blog, what do you wear when you’re relaxing at a lodge? I’ve got on my comfortable denim and my converse!
Hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday! YAHOO!
