An expansive bed and breakfast chamber with vaulted ceiling, over-sized picture windows and a sitting area overlooking the Japanese lily pond and waterfall.

A lovely two-person jetted tub w/Roman shower and rich marble flooring. TV with DVD and music capability, small fridge, air conditioning.

The Syringa Suite is our bridal “suite” and largest room. To the north, large picture windows overlook a breathtaking Japanese water garden where Koi swim among the water lilies and a spectacular water fall tumbles to the garden below. On the west, sliding glass doors open onto a deck that is nestled among wild flowers and Ponderosa pines. Within, rich green carpet and beautiful stepping stones create a “garden pathway” that leads the eye outside and complements the room’s Asian decor. While you soak in your private tub, you will find yourself transformed to a Japanese mountain inn as the open window bathes you in the sweet smell of pines and the sound of the waterfall beyond: tranquility for the mind, body and soul.

The comfort of a plush, king-sized bed and more traditional American sitting space is all that gives away the true secret of this room as a Montana Bed and Breakfast.

History of the Syringa

historyofsyringaThe sweet smelling Syringa, which is Idaho’s state flower, is part of the Hydrangea family. Its species name, Lewisii, honors Captain Meriwether Lewis, who collected it in this area along the Bitterroot River in 1806. The Syringa is also known as Mock-Orange, Bridal Wreath and Indian Arrowwood. Its straight stems were used by Native People in making arrows, while the leaves, roots and branches were used for medicinal purposes.

In late June, the lovely “orange blossom” fragrance of the Syringa fills the mountain air as swallowtail butterflies sip its nectar. It is fitting that the Syringa Suite looks out over the Japanese water garden, where varieties of Japanese hydrangeas bloom throughout the summer. In late June, these splendid garden varieties are paired with our native beauty which covers the hillsides in white, like a fragrant blanket of soft winter snow.
