What To See in Downtown Missoula This Spring

Downtown Missoula offers many incredible things to see and experience while taking a break from the hiking trails. Most of the time, when you think of this part of Montana, you associate this town with outdoor adventures of hiking, biking, rafting, or rock climbing. While you are here though, time spent downtown in the heart of the city is a great way to fully immerse yourself in one of the largest cities in the state. The majestic Clark Fork River runs rights through the center and is a great reminder of the wilderness that surrounds this city. Here there are unique shops, restaurants, cafes, art galleries, and events that make up the cultural center of Western Montana.

Let our mountainside retreat be your perfect getaway this spring! At our Missoula bed and breakfast, you are within minutes of downtown Missoula and everything it has to offer. Our Montana inn is a tranquil escape with a bird’s eye view of the Bitterroot River and the valley below. Private rooms compliment and reflect the rustic beauty of the forested surroundings. We have 20 acres of registered wildlife habitat that opens up onto state and federally protected land. You feel as if you have your own private mountain cabin. If you want the perfect getaway to Missoula this spring, book your stay with us today! Continue reading

Missoula Shopping Spree


Peruse eclectic Missoula shops during a Missoula Shopping Getaway.

It may be October, but it’s not too early to start thinking about the holidays. They’ll be upon us before you know it.

Many folks in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming live in the country, hours from the closest city. For these people, holiday shopping involves the internet or a road trip. We hope you’ll choose the road trip, and come spend a few days at our Missoula, Montana, Bed and Breakfast.

Missoula has an eclectic community. There are wizened cowboys and bespeckled intellectuals, avid outdoorsmen and creative artists, and a lively mix of all of the above. Shops have sprouted up to cater to thisĀ  diverse population; it makes for interesting shopping.

Our Missoula Bed and Breakfast hosts many guests who come to town each November and December to shop. Internet shopping is convenient, but it’s somehow not as satisfying or fun as walking up and down a street, popping into one shop after the next. Plus, everyone can go on line from anywhere and find the same product. Not everyone has the opportunity to shop in Missoula.

Some of our favorite Missoula stores include:

  • Fact and Fiction: fantastic bookstore.
  • Bird’s Nest Books: another fantastic bookstore, with rare books.
  • Butterfly Herbs: eclectic items from jewelry to coffee mugs.
  • Fair Trade Store: clothing, musical instruments and jewelry from around the world.
  • Monte Dolack Gallery: features the work of Dolack and other Montana artists.
  • Pirnie Art Showroom: unique work by Larry Pirnie and others.
  • Red Rooster Trading: a super kitchen and bath shop.
  • Army Navy Economy Store: full of treasures, if you’re willing to look.
