Make Your Heart Happy in Missoula, Montana

You will enjoy spectacular views of the stunning Bitterroot River, encompassing mountains, and beautiful valley below.  Our comfortable and elegant B&B offers a relaxing mountain retreat to our guests.

Conveniently close to the peaceful and scenic Blue Mountain Bed and Breakfast, the International Heart Institute of Montana brings together a recognized team of cardiologists, heart surgeons, nurses and researchers to perform advanced cardiac procedures and to search for new and improved ways to treat heart disease. Founded in 1995, IHI involves physicians and staff of St. Patrick Hospital and The University of Montana in Missoula.  They are one of the Top 50 Heart Hospitals in our country.

With your doctor’s approval, you can take good care of your heart by walking, biking, or hiking the historic Lewis and Clark trail.

Innkeepers Brady and Elaine know a lot about the history of the area.  In fact, family stories related to the settling of the West include a great, grand uncle who was one of the first tour guides in Yellowstone Park.  They share their family’s history with informative and entertaining displays and albums at their bed and breakfast.  

Elaine is a certified tour guide who can provide you with a personal camp-side Montana Trails and Tales “tour” (with advanced reservations).
