Enjoyable and relaxing stay

Our two night stay at Howlers Inn was more like a visit to your favorite kin folks. The amenities seemed endless- large shared living room, a huge TV room, great rooms and a great breakfast. The hosts are very kind and helpful. Mary-Martha is a wizard at preparing unique and delicious food. She will go out of her way to accommodate any dietary limitations. The place is very quiet and peaceful with a nice view of the mountains. This B&B is a great deal on it's own, but the wolves in the back yard, that are very friendly, make this a truly enjoyable and special place to visit.

Howlers Inn is an incredible oasis to spend time. We stayed in the carriage house with another couple. It has all the amenities you need plus a full kitchen and living area - perfect for the 4 of us. The bathroom is a bit quirky with its angled ceilings but it has everything you need. The grounds are beautiful and the wolves are a very special addition, especially being able to get up close to them as well as hear their howling in the early mornings. There is nice outside gathering areas for relaxing, reminiscing, and visiting with other guests, over cocktails about your day's adventure in Yellowstone or beyond. Breakfasts are delicious! and is another chance to visit with the other guests and the hosts. The hosts are so nice and helpful,always at the ready to help as if you're their very first guest. We would come back, and stay longer in a heartbeat. Mary-Martha and Chris Bahn, thank you for sharing your home and wolf sanctuary!


Best in the west

We were on a two week trip from England when we stayed with Chris and Mary Martha. Easily the best accommodation on a 2500 mile trip around Montana, Wyoming and Colorado. Wolves were beautiful but took second prize against Mary Martha's wonderful breakfasts! It's also great knowing your money is doing something good. Keep up the good work.


Amazing!

This was by far the most amazing and wonderful place we have stayed -- ever. We timed our trip to be over our 45th wedding anniversary... and we are so very happy that we did!. Mary Martha and Chris are wonderful hosts! The room was perfect and HUGE! The views from the room and the deck and the porch are simply beautiful. It was so great to meet the wolves and hear their stories. And the food was just awesome! Wonderful, hot, gourmet breakfasts every morning. It was such a pleasure to meet the Bahns and stay at their B&B. An experience to treasure!.

Wonderful views from our room, the Western. Great hospitality, excellent breakfast. So close to the wolves. The wolves howls.


A Howlin' Good Time

4.6 on August 21, 2016

My wife and I recently (July 2016) spent three very enjoyable days at Howlers Inn. Mary-Martha and Chris are wonderful, easy-going hosts and the breakfasts were delicious. Our room (the Southwest) looked out over the wolf pens where we were serenaded by Comanche and his pals in the mornings - what a unique experience. The bathroom is a bit cozy, but fully functional and lots of closet space and floor space in the room. Certainly hope we can visit again sometime.


A Special Retreat

Mary-Martha and Chris Bahn were incredible hosts and have the most gorgeous retreat property. You will feel right at home, and what a unique experience to wake up every morning with wolves in your backyard. The property is incredibly picturesque yet only a quick10-15 minute car ride to downtown Bozeman with all of it's wonderful dining and shopping. I would highly recommend a stay at Howlers Inn.


One of the best places we've stayed

4.6 on July 30, 2016

After spending 5 days touring the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone we ended our trip with 2 nights at the Howlers Inn B&B. It was such a fantastic experience! Not only was the price way more affordable than where we had been staying, the room was roomier, the bed was as comfortable, and the sheets were amazing. I'm going to buy a set for our house! But comfortable sleeping accommodations were nothing compared to the kind and gracious treatment from the owners, Chris & Mary Martha, and the shear joy of being able to hear the wolves howl, see them up close and even pet two of them through the fence. Sekani, even licked my hand! I hope we will be able to return to visit them soon. Do yourself a favor and book a stay here!! Oh and yes there is plenty to see and do in Bozeman as well.


Something to howl about!

Our daughter is obsessed with wolves, and she actually found the Howlers Inn prior to knowing we would be in the area. We surprised her with two nights in the Carriage House (two bedrooms). The facilities were awesome, the owners were wonderful, and breakfast each morning was delicious and filling. The wolves were wonderful, and this is definitely worth the time and money if you're in the area. We plan to come back again.


Unique, comfortable ... excellent!

The house overlooks a beautiful valley in the mountains outside of Bozeman and is well separated from neighboring properties. The hosts greeted us, made sure we knew where everything was…not only in the room but in the common areas such as TV and entertainment areas. The wolves were amazing to watch. So much like dogs but so different in many of their behaviors. And, when we were there, the star of the show was the 9 week-old pup. The room we had was large and light with windows on three sides. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean and set up for comfort and convenience. In our room there was also a mini-fridge and small microwave. It was very quiet. The breakfasts were truly outstanding and coffee was available before breakfast for early risers.
