Renowned fly rod maker enters the lodging and hospitality industry
LAST OCTOBER, one of the most recognizable brands in fly fishing, Sage rods, announced it plans to lend its name to a resort lodge slated to open in late 2018 on the banks of Montana’s Yellowstone River, and effectively establish the company’s first foray into the tourism market.
Sage is working with the lodge owner, the Joshua Green Corporation, and its designers, builders, and hospitality management company to get the project off the ground. When it’s all said and done, the facility will have 34 rooms and four standalone cabins, a spa, restaurant, and on- and off-site amenities like horseback riding, dogsledding, and snowshoeing. But the main attraction for fly anglers will be the lodge’s location—about 30 miles from Yellowstone National Park and an hour from Bozeman, with views of Emigrant Peak and a mile of frontage on the Yellowstone.
Room rates are projected to start at $300 a night, and guests can book individual rooms in the freestanding cabins or collectively sleep groups up to 16 people, and there will be indoor and outdoor meeting spaces suited for up to 150 people.
“Sage Lodge will truly speak the language of adventure seekers and those looking to be inspired by the great outdoors,” said Stan McCammon, president and CEO of the Joshua Green Corporation. “The Green family, now in its sixth generation, is comprised of fly fishing and outdoor enthusiasts, and this magnificent property will offer endless opportunities for generations of families, friends, and the community to enjoy.”
