Golf Missoula

Our Missoula lodging is less than five miles from Larchmont Golf Course, in Missoula.

Puma Golf Marketing Team Wins Big with Rickie Fowler Sponsorship

Golf while in Missoula. It's fun.

This makes it super easy to enjoy a game of golf while staying with us. Rise early and feast upon Swedish pancakes, crab crepes, or a golden fried polenta. Enjoy a homemade cinnamon roll with hot coffee, or a blueberry scone with a nice cup of tea. You’ll be ready to walk 18-holes and golf better than ever after breakfast at our Missoula bed and breakfast.

Montana Fly Fishing – A Dream Come True

If it has long been your dream to fly fish in Montana (think A River Runs Through It), then now is your chance. Spring through fall, the rivers of Montana team with fish, and anglers come from all over to catch them. Book a holiday at our Montana bed and breakfast, and help turn your dreams into reality.

Blackfoot River Outfitters has been guiding Montana fishing trips for a good twenty years, and we feel good about recommending them. They are a family operation, they are passionate about fly fishing, and they know how to catch fish. People return to them again and again, year after year, because they understand the kind of experience folks hope to encounter on a Montana fishing trip, and they deliver.

Fish are caught, but there is something more to the experience as well. Maybe you have to be an angler to understand, I don’t know. Magic happens out there on the river. Something changes inside, even if only during the trip. Knowledge is gained. A ritual is performed. Blackfoot River Outfitters offers day float fishing trips (full and half), overnight trips, and wade fishing. Overnight trips include delicious food. Stay at our bed and breakfast Missoula before heading into the wilderness (for a few hours or a few days), and as a place to recover once you’ve caught your quota. Regale us with stories of your success, and tell us tragic tales about the ones that got away. We’ll listen. We care.

There is no time like the present to visit Montana for a fishing expedition. Seize the day.

Montana White Water Rafting

As the snows melt in the mountains, the rivers swell. That means there is great whitewater rafting in Montana these days, especially in the rivers around Missoula. Are you the adventurous sort? If so, reserve a room at our Montana bed and breakfast and contact a Missoula rafting outfitter.

The beautiful Blackfoot River

Rafting is exhilarating, whether you’re floating down Class I or Class III rapids – it’s all a question of perspective and experience. The guides in and around Missoula are professional and experienced. Safety is paramount, as is creating an exciting expedition for all on board. Continue reading

Hike Crazy Canyon Trail

Crazy Canyon Trail is an easy to moderate hike of seven miles, not far from our bed and breakfast Missoula. It is best tackled mid-May through October, which means now is a good time to start planning for it.

View from the Big "M" above the Univeristy of Montana. The vew from Mount Sentinel is even better!

Plan to spend at least three and a half hours on the move. The trail starts in the Pattee Recreation Area, passes through Crazy Canyon and meanders through Lolo Forest. It climbs to the summit of Mount Sentinel, the 5,158 peak that rises above the University of Montana. If you are interested in a shorter, one way hike, you can descend Mount Sentinal towards the university. Ask us about transportation options.

The views from Mount Sentinel are superb – 360 degrees of the surrounding mountains, Missoula and the whole Missoula Valley. Bring a picnic (Missoula’s Cafe Courie puts together great take-out food) and relax at the summit for a while.

A hike up Crazy Canyon Trail is sure to make you good and tired, and you can look forward to a relaxing evening at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast. Peruse our large collection of music, challenge each other to a board game, or cuddle together and watch a movie. In the morning, we will feed you a feast fit for royalty, so you’ll be ready for more adventures in the Missoula area.

The Beauty of Missoula

Rain Soaked Sunset

The beauty of Missoula is everywhere. It is sometimes found where you least expect it, like in the glow of the evening sky pictured above.

Stay at our Missoula bed and breakfast and explore our town for a few days. There is much to do here: interesting cultural events, great dining, and some of the finest outdoor recreation in the west.

We will pamper you and feed you well at our bed and breakfast Missoula. You will leave refreshed, and count the days until you return.

There is Something Sweet in Missoula

It’s true. That something sweet can be found right here, at our bed and breakfast Missoula.

Valentine’s Day falls during the President’s Day long weekend, which is as good a reason as any to drop all work, grab your sweetie, and head for our Montana inn. Think about it: no cooking, no dishes, no laundry… just the two of you.

You know that if you stay home you’ll each head off your separate ways to tackle parts of the “to do” list. The only solution is to leave. This is something you may want to consider even if you live in the Missoula area.

Sink your teeth into these...

The February Specialty at our Bed and Breakfast Montana is “Something Sweet”.  Make yourself at home here, but let your main goal be relaxation and enjoyment. You’ll find chocolate hearts and a long stemmed rose in your room to help set the mood.

Consider staying in one evening and letting us cook for you. We are offering an Italian menu to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year. Can’t you just taste Italian Carbonara with shrimp and Italian sausage in a Marsala cream sauce? How about roasted red pepper soup, salad with huckleberry vinaigrette dressing, and Italian flat bread? Leave room for the chocolate fondue.

So shred the “to do” list (his and hers) and throw caution to the wind. You’ve made it through the dark days of January, and, for that, you deserve a weekend off.

First Night Missoula

Missoula is planning to welcome 2010 in style, and you should do everything in your power to be there. Our bed and breakfast Missoula is close to downtown and all the festivities.

Remember the Masquerade Ball? We see them in movies all the time, and they always look so fun. At a Masked Ball, you have permission to be anyone you want to be. Have you always envied the glamorous movie stars from the 40s? Do you wonder what it would feel like to sport a peacock’s majestic tail? Now is your chance!

First Night Missoula

First Night Missoula

There will be no fewer than five bands performing at the Masquerade Ball. One of those bands will surely play your favorite kind of music. You can plan to stay for the entire evening or drop by for a while – there will be no shortage of events and activities available.

The celebration kicks off at 1pm with a parade, and from then until midnight the city of Missoula will be given over to fun. There will be a shuttle bus transporting folks from place to place. Stop by the Courthouse Lawn to see this year’s ice sculptures, carved by the chefs of the University of Montana. Swim at Currents Aquatic Center, or ice-skate at Glacier Ice Rink – or both. There will be magicians, face painting, and sonnets on the sidewalk. Art Galleries stay open late, several dance troupes will perform, and you’ll be able to listen to many musicians. Huddle around the bonfire when you need to warm yourself.

Don’t let the fact that you live a good distance from Missoula deter you; plan to stay at our Missoula bed and breakfast and experience First Night Missoula.

Hiking in Missoula

There is great hiking in Missoula. In the Blue Mountain Recreation Area, enjoy the Maclay Flat Interpretative Trail.

It is a gentle stroll on a wide path that can also accommodate wheelchairs.  The trail takes you along the Bitterroot River and through adjacent meadows, with some great views of mountains around Missoula.

Blue Mountain Views

Blue Mountain Views

If you want to pick up a little knowledge while visiting our Missoula lodging, the Maclay Flat Trail also has 16 interpretive signs along the way describing the river system, wildlife, vegetation and archeology of this area.

There is wildlife in the area, and the observant guest has seen evidence of porcupine and beaver. Also look for wood duck nesting boxes attached to trees and for bluebird boxes on fence posts.

About a third mile down the trail, you reach a flat, grassy spot along the river – perfect for picnicking. There are also some fishing spots along this stretch of the river. We at the Blue Mountain Montana Bed and Breakfast will be happy to provide you with picnic baskets and coolers!

There is also great bird watching at Maclay Flat. During spring in Missoula look for lots of wildflowers and other plants. Hope to see you at our Missoula Inn soon!
