Sagebrush Suite

Sagebrush Suite at the Blue Mountain Bed and Breakfast

A spacious bed and breakfast chamber with unique, hand-crafted queen log bed, pillow-top mattress, and down comforter. Large picture windows, private bath with heated tile flooring, lovely two-person jetted tub/shower combination, surrounded by tile. Large sitting space with leather recliners, near an outdoor deck, large TV with DVD and music- $134.00 per night, up to $165 in peak season

The Sagebrush Suite offers a western, log decor that is reminiscent of an earlier era, tying the Inn to a past history of family homesteads and ranching. The suite looks out over the beautiful Missoula Valley, allowing for views of the city and of one the first ranches around here- a fitting scene given the Western feel. You will enjoy many relaxing moments as you take in the expanse of the West in the room’s comfortable sitting area or on the outdoor deck.

After that long day on the trail, you can look forward to a soak in your private jetted tub, something that would make a cowboy with his old-time wash basin more than envious. And when it is finally time to “hit the sack,” you can lie in the comfort of your log bed, watching the stars and listening to an old cowboy version of “Silver On The Sage” or the beautifully haunting melodies of Native American flute. When dawn comes, you will find yourself still nestled beneath the cozy down comforter, anticipating a fresh cup of coffee and the events of the day.

Binoculars, guide books, and historical information related to the West are provided for the purpose of enhancing your visit to our Missoula Bed and Breakfast.

History of the Sagebrush

history_imagesSagebrush, which is part of the sunflower family, has long been associated with cowboy territory and like the tumble weed, has become a symbol of the West. There are in fact several different species of sagebrush and nearly all have held significant religious and medicinal value for Indian tribes within the Western region. The Kootenai tell of their cultural hero, Coyote, having smoked a type of sage as tobacco. Many tribes continue to use it in traditional purification rituals.

There are a number of sagebrush varieties native to Montana but only rabbit brush, a distant relative of true sagebrush, grows on Blue Mountain’s hillsides. In the Bitterroot Valley however, early settlers commented on this tall, dense plant which continues to thrive on some of the more arid hillsides and offers wildlife such as deer, elk and grouse an important winter food source.
