Romantic candle-lit dinners, going on outdoor adventures together, and staying in the most incredible hotels! Montana sure is a wonderful destination for a couple’s getaway!
And since there are so many stunning options, today I’ll help you find the best Montana resorts for couples! After thorough research, I’ve come up with a fabulous list of hotels with great reviews, which I ordered from most to least expensive.
That is just the beginning, I’ve also added 2 bonus sections (since there were so many amazing accommodations), with the best romantic cabins in Montana and the top hotels which have a hot tub in the room.
So there’s plenty to go around, but I would recommend booking your hotel early, as Montana is a super popular destination, and many tourists come here to enjoy the Montana Rockies or the hot springs.
NOTE: Since most people visit Montana during the high seasons in summer (June to August) and winter (December to March), prices tend to be higher then, so make sure to book even earlier if you’re planning on visiting during that time.
But let’s not waste time, and let’s hit the road!
