The Four Seasons of Missoula


December through February are perfect months to enjoy a downhill or cross country skiing expedition, a sleigh ride or ice fishing experience near our Missoula Inn.  (These activities are not offered at the Bed and Breakfast, but you can find information on our links page.)  The University of Montana offers many musical and cultural events at this time and our Community Theater is at its height. You will find nothing more spectacular at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast as a crystal clear day framed in blue sky and frost covered trees or a moonlight winter night that casts shadows over the pond and rock garden. We invite you to join our family on Christmas Eve when we often have a Medieval feast, a Swedish smorgasbord, or a more traditional meal of roasted meats, vegetables and lots of fun and song!

Winter at The B&B is a great time to curl up with a book, watch a movie, listen to the old player piano or take a walk in the snow. A party of four or more can make arrangements for an evening of fondue, or a multi-course ethnic dinner featuring French, Italian, Spanish, Scandinavian, Thai or even Medieval cuisine specialties.

Dinner (for four or more):

  • Winter Feature: Enjoy one of the best bowls of clam chowder around accompanied by warm, buttery popovers, a light salad and a grilled salmon steak with lemon-tarragon seasoning.
  • December Specialty: gather around with family for either an evening of fondue, a Swedish smorgasbord or a Medieval feast!
  • January Specialty: “Sum” New Year Fun.” Get ready to ring in the Chinese New Year with a selection of Dim Sum delicacies and a couple of good friends!
  • February Specialty: “Something Sweet.” Treat your sweetheart to a special Valentine’s Day getaway, complete with chocolate hearts and a long stemmed rose. You can make reservations for an elegant candle light dinner of Italian Carbonara with shrimp and Italian sausage in a Marsala cream sauce. This is accompanied with a roasted red pepper soup, salad with huckleberry vinaigrette dressing and Italian flat bread. Dessert will be chocolate fondue.

$50.00 per person and includes non-alcoholic drinks. Please feel free to bring wine if you wish, we will provide the glasses.

From mid-March through June, Missoula is alive with activity, including such events as The International Food and Wildlife Film Festivals. Amid green valleys and mountain peaks capped with white, the birds begin nesting and wild flowers blanket the hills with color. Missoula offers several bird sanctuaries that are truly spectacular this time of year, and there is no better time to re-trace the footsteps of Lewis and Clark, Native People or other historical figures within the Rocky Mountain West. Remember to dress in layers. Spring weather in Montana can be varied.

Dinner (for four or more guests)

Our featured menu highlights Japanese cuisine and includes selections such as delicate shrimp tempura, katsu curry, sukiyaki or yakitori, accompanied by a spring rain salad and miso soup.

Please ask about a special Mother’s Day brunch or tea.

Late June through August is the perfect time to enjoy an early morning hike, horseback ride, or float trip down one of the rivers. In the evenings, there are often band concerts and theater productions. On July Fourth, Fort Missoula is booming with an old fashioned celebration.

Dinner (four or more guests)

Here at Blue Mountain bed and breakfast Montana, you might enjoy a hearty cowboy BBQ with baked beans, fresh garden vegetables, Montana, ranch-raised beef and home made pie.

September through November at our Missoula Montana Bed and Breakfast offers a dramatically beautiful change in seasons. The leaves along the river turn golden in the sunshine, geese begin to migrate south and the first few frosts hint at the winter to come. The harvest season is a wonderful time to visit a historical ranch or homestead, take part in apple cider making festivities or take in a Montana ghost town tour.

Dinner (four or more guests)

Among other specialties, you can enjoy either Spanish Paella or Cornish game hens served on a bed of wild rice, both are accompanied by a lovely autumn bisque soup, rosemary focaccia, our house salad with huckleberry vinaigrette dressing and a ginger-lavender creme brulee.
