Cushy Montana Destinations?

#1
An impending delivery is threatening my annual Montana trip with my wife. We are expecting a baby girl in November and I'm afraid the September stream-side tent set-up might not cut it this year. Does anybody have a recommendation for a Lodge or B&B type destination that won't prohibit starting a college fund??

My wife and I stayed at Fairmont Springs resort summer before last. It's a few steps above tenting, has a couple restaurants and a swimming pool. It's between Anaconda and Butte, within an hour of the Big Hole and a number of other popular rivers.

Headhunters and there cabins on the Missouri. Theres alot of really nice other lodges in the state so its hard to pick just one. Somewhere in Livingston might be nice aswell.

Another vote for Chico Hot Springs. Rooms in the old lodge start at around $45, on up to expensive suites, cabins, etc. Spa with massages and that stuff and a good restaurant.
It's right next to the Yellowstone and just down from the famous spring creeks. Not too far from the park.

Chico Hot Springs. Boy, that brings back memories. I haven't been there in nearly 40 years. I used to stop there for a meal and a soak after Yellowstone trips. I'm sure it has changed a lot in that time.

The Main Lodge rates at Chico start at $55 during the summer months. But those cheaper rooms do not have a bathroom in them. That might be a problem for a 7 month pregnant woman.

Chico is a very nice place and I go there every few years. And it is very close to the Yellowstone, YNP, and the Spring Creeks.

I really liked the "Saloon" at Chico Hot Springs as well. There's quite a few little BnB options toward Gardiner. I can look for the name tonight where we stayed, but it was directly on the Yellowstone.

the Ranch at Rock Creek?
Well he did ask for "cushy" didn't he?

But then he also wrote

While the Ranch at Rock Creek satisfies the "cushy" part and there's a ton of activities, the cheapest accommodations I know of there are ~$1200/night/person.
