Montana’s Paradise Valley has soaring peaks, majestic valleys, and 100 miles of trout-filled rivers. Which is to say, the name is no exaggeration. The Yellowstone Valley Lodge and its three new riverside cabins (from $209)—40 minutes from Bozeman—are the perfect base camp for rafting trips down the river. Plus, you’re just 38 miles from Yellowstone National Park and even closer to Absarokas hikes like the five-mile trek to Pine Creek Lake.
