Relax in the country

5 on January 21, 2016

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!

Howlers Inn - The Best in Bozeman

We had an absolutely fabulous experience at the Howlers Inn. Our room was very comfortable and spacious with great views of the wolves! We immensely enjoyed each wonderful breakfast. Evenings on the porch were very relaxing as well as fun when the elk meandered out from the tree line across the street. The B and B is convenient to downtown Bozeman - definitely fun to visit - and there is great hiking and golf in the area. This is a must for your itinerary!

Howlers Inn - A True Gem

Everything and everyone exceded all expectations. The location, furnishings, and especially our hosts were superb. Sincerely was one of the highlights of our vacation. My family and I look forward to coming back to beautiful Montana. The Bahn family was the most gracious that we have had the pleasure to stay with. Thank you, the Ellis Family.

wonderful stay, great hosts

A Terrific Experience

We had expected a nice rural experience, The surroundings are lush green hills (in June) far from traffic. The only sounds are the sounds of nature. We stayed in the Western room that looked directly on to the wolf sanctuary. Watching them out the window day or night was an amazing experience. Our hosts are extremely friendly and informative. The breakfast was delicious and we totally enjoyed our two night stay. I hope to one day take my grandchildren there.

Beautiful, Peaceful, Montana's Best - with Wolf Music !

Howlers Inn is a truly peaceful, picturesque, and very welcoming "home away from home". Beautiful setting & scenery frames this quietly majestic log home. Mary Matha, Chris, and their daughters are SO laid back and easy going: we felt like we had been there many times before as family members, but, this was our first (but will NOT be the last) visit. We enjoyed walking the roads around their home, visiting with Chris and Mary Martha (and their daughters, too!); their backgrounds and love of where they live make conversation easy, comfortable, and stimulating. We toured Bozeman, Hyalite Canyon, and the area - all worth your time! AND, the WOLVES !!! We never heard of this sanctuary for wolves before; we got to see them up close, watch Chris feed and comb them - he is part of their pack - what an awesome experience. The rooms - the entire place - is super clean and kept up beautifully; the in house amenities are most comfortable (TV, video, sauna, ......, ) and QUIET ! (We did enjoy wolf music early one morning, as they responded to a wild wolf in the mountains across the meadow - haunting and beautiful, I will never forget it !!) The breakfasts we enjoyed were splendid: "eye candy" as well as being delicious!! Absolutely no negatives, save one: we had to leave too soon; but we WILL be back!!! THANKS, Mary Martha, Chris, Delaney, Alexis, and wolves!!!!

Will Go Back

This is one of those places that you just can't visit once. The location is beautiful & peaceful, Mary-Martha & Chris make you feel like family, the accommodations are great, the breakfast was amazing and the wolves are a fun to watch.

Blissful B&B!

Beautiful surroundings in the Montana mountains! The hosts, Chris and Mary-Martha, were welcoming, helpful, and very willing to answer the million questions that we had. The room was huge, breakfast was delicious, and the wolves were right under our window - tough to beat that!

One of a kind!

5 on July 24, 2012

My fiancé and I stayed here from July 4th to the 11th. Having never been to Montana before, our adventurous spirit brought us here with high hopes and an open mind. In researching places for us to stay, I came across this place and as soon as I saw it and looked into the details, I knew this was the place for us. It is absolutely beautiful, in a picturesque location and the uniqueness of the wolf sanctuary right outside your window means there's something for everyone. Plenty of land to walk and admire, cozy rooms for quiet reading or gathering with others and always a friendly word (and dining or activity suggestions if you'd like) from Mary-Martha and Chris. You will not want or need for anything, every detail is thought of and Mary-Martha and Chris make you feel comfortable and like one of the family, cheerful all the while and making it look effortless. Oh and I can't forget the breakfasts! So delicious and artfully presented you almost don't want to eat them! Overall, it is without a doubt the best place to stay for couples, groups, or families with kids of any age. The "stars", the wolves, keep all ages intrigued with their antics and their playful interactions with Mary-Martha and Chris (especially around feeding time!) are fascinating to watch. This place is an absolute one-of-a-kind gem that deserves every positive review and accolade that it gets. We will definitely be back!
