A Special Retreat

5 on August 15, 2016

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

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.

Wonderful innkeepers, wonderful food and great ambiance. Unique to the 10th degree; you won't find anything like this anywhere.

A Gem of a B & B.

This is a wonderful place---unique breakfasts, nice rooms, and great hosts. All this and interesting wolves to watch. The country setting is peaceful and scenic.

Awesome!!...from start to finish!! As a Scot, personally I would say it was Fan Dabi Dozi !!! Made to feel welcome and at ease from the get go by Mary-Martha and Chris, we were introduced to the wolves straight away thru the kitchen window!! We had booked the Western room (the photos do not do it justice) mainly because it has a window overlooking the wolf sanctuary, but the room itself is gorgeous with a king size bed....the comfiest (bar none) that I have ever slept in...not to mention the jet tub bath...although we were far too busy watching the wolves interact to make use of it!! Breakfasts were freshly cooked by Chris each morning, while we guests chatted and shared fast food in this establishment!! Also, no alarm needed here as you are awoken by the wolf chorus each morning. The icing on the cake...or sheer privilege for us was the fact that we were able to stroke/scratch Commanche, the friendliest wolf in the world!! He is extra special as he is about to become dad to the 6wk old orphan wolf cub that has been taken in by the Bahn family. This integration began the day we were leaving and we'll be keeping fingers n toes crossed that it is successful. Thank you so much Mary-Martha and Chris for allowing us for a very short time to share your way of life and commitment to giving sanctuary to these beautiful animals who otherwise would suffer and die at the hands of "so called" hunters...what are these guys really afraid of???

Memorable Stay

Mary Martha and Chris were fantastic hosts and so helpful with local sites and directions. Very knowledgeable about wolves; it is clear that their wolves are an important part of their lives. Amazing views of the mountains, incredible home cooked breakfasts, and a powerful experience to be able to connect so closely to the wolves.

Very Relaxing

I lived in Bozeman a few years back and didn't even know it existed. Tucked in the Bridger mountain range it is so quiet and peaceful. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were Excellent, homemade and filling. They had plenty of different things to do in and around the house..... spa, pool table, movies, and that is just the things to do in and around the house. Then there is the whole outdoors. Right out doors are the wolves!!! Real live (not tame) wolves. They had four of them when we were there and watching them wander around was very cool. I can't say enough good about how wonderful our stay was. They made our 10th anniversary extra special. Thank you thank you Thank you!!!

Relax in the country

Four of us [two couples] stayed in the Carriage House one night at the beginning and one night at the end of a week. It was comfortable, clean & nicely appointed. Having the complete kitchen with table allowed us to bring a dinner and relax in the country instead of having to go into town. I was delighted to see that placemats and fabric napkins were provided. The hosts, Mary Martha & Chris, were relaxed and full of information about the wolves and the area. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. It was an easy three mile drive from I-90 into quiet country. We recommend the Howlers Inn B&B to everyone!
