Our Inn

Our Missoula Bed and Breakfast

Bed and BreakfastThe Lewis and Clark Lodge facility at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast is a three story log building that is inviting upon arrival and perfect for small family reunions or conferences. The spacious, top floor of our B&B in Missoula affords a magnificent view of the Bitterroot River and Missoula Valley while curling up with a good book, visiting with family, friends or other guests, or playing a variety of board games or billiards. The decor of the bed and breakfast offers curious folks an opportunity to learn more about Montana’s history, wildlife and culture through a wide selection of books, novels, and family heirlooms.

The middle floor of our Missoula B&B lodging is reserved for two private guestrooms, The Sagebrush Suite and The Bitterroot Room.

Hawk Hill House, the main facility, lies a short distance from the Lodge. The house stands on top of a spectacular forested overlook, allowing for views of the valley floor and Sapphire Mountains to the east, as well as a nestled-in view of the hillside, pond and waterfall to the west.

Picture windows in every guestroom and common space of the house look out over the mountains and gardens, luring a person to go hiking, sit on the patio, or enjoy the out of doors from inside while reading a good book or listening to the old player piano.

The kitchen, gift store, and living and dining areas are on the main floor of the home while a small library/study and three guest rooms, The Syringa Suite, Ponderosa, and Rose Room, are on the upper level. We look forward to showing you around our Missoula B&B  soon!

Your Hosts


Brady and Elaine Anderson-Wood are native Montanans who have an avid interest in helping to preserve and pass on local history and wildlife opportunities to others. The gardens as well as log and cedar structures on the property were designed and built primarily through the joint effort of family members who worked together to create a mountain dream, come true.

The antiques and decor of the Inn reflect generational ties to western ranching and history as well as personal travel experiences throughout parts of Europe and Asia. Family stories related to the settling of the West, including a great, grand uncle who was one of the first tour guides in Yellowstone Park, are shared through historical displays and albums at The Bed and Breakfast. Many of the exhibits, including an international mask collection and a Western art display, give one a genuine feeling of being in a small museum or art gallery.

Brady and Elaine have passions that include gardening, woodworking, cooking and music, meeting new people and enjoying the little critters that reside in their home and on the mountain. When they are not busy with the Bed and Breakfast, they spend their hours hiking and photographing the surrounding landscape and taking part in community activities. Brady is a full time host at the b&b, while Elaine maintains a part-time teacher career during the school year.

Elaine and Brady are proud of the fact that their dream of establishing Blue Mountain B&B in turn helps other local projects maintain important dreams for the community. When you stay at The Inn, you further their ability to contribute to a variety of worthy organizations including, The University of Montana Alumni Band Association, Travelers’ Rest State Park, The Audubon Society, P.E.O. (educational scholarships for women), Missoula Butterfly House, Tamarack Grief Resource Center (an organization helping Children and their families whom have lost someone close.)  Five Valley Land Trust, The Flagship Program (an after school & summer activities program for disadvantaged youth.)

“You are both such accommodating hosts and there is so much to see and do at The Inn.” C.L., Montana

The Blue Mountain Experience

Be met at the door with a warm welcome, facility tour, complimentary beverages and snacks as well as suggestions for any of your dining or touring needs.

Wake up each morning to the song of wild birds and the aroma of freshly brewed Blue Mountain coffee. Enjoy a variety of gourmet specialties as you take in views of the Missoula valley, mountains, water gardens and wildlife surrounding our Missoua Lodging.

Feel well rested and ready for a day on the town or in the surrounding Missoula region, taking in the art, culture, shopping, sporting and other events offered. (Pamphlets, guide books, menus and suggestions are always on hand at The Bed and Breakfast.)

Let us orient you to the area with a personal camp-side Montana Trails and Tales “tour” (with advanced reservations). While relaxing in either the forested picnic area or the Lodge, enjoy a personal storytelling hour as you are taken on a fascinating oral history of the area through story and song. Afterward you can locate the places talked about either on your own (with our complimentary guide packet), with us, or with another locally established historian (advanced reservations are requested).

(If you would like to plan for your trip in advance, please see our Area Links which include contact information and many ideas which will help you plan for the perfect vacation!)

Relax after your day in Missoula or at The Bed and Breakfast, and absorb the cool, evening breeze, the sound of crickets and the reflection of the moon in the river, below. Sit down to a romantic candle light dinner, the lights of Missoula and the illuminated lily pond. Spend a movie and popcorn night in the Lodge recreation room with our wide-screen projection system. Our large collection of DVD titles offers something for everyone, or Retire early to the comfort of your room where you can read, relax in your jetted tub or enjoy a glass of wine.

Prepare for your departure by using Missoula Lodging small library/study facilities to research the rest of your Montana travel route, or catch up on your computer work with the use of our high speed internet service. Before you go, choose a gift for yourself or someone special from our mini “mountain store” which includes locally autographed books, wildlife photographs, note cards, tea, preserves, and more!

Leave with fond memories, a sense of inner peace and a bottle of cool spring water for the road. Just let us know how we can make your stay a memorable and relaxing one, whether it is just for the night or for a week or more!

“There is nothing to describe the rejuvenating feeling of your waterfall. We will remember sitting by it for hours, just listening and relaxing.”
