A place to go back again!

4.6 on February 17, 2014

I still reminisce about our trip to Glacier and Bad Rock was a key reason. For my 50th birthday celebration my wife included this stay for two nights. The western feel of the cottage, its cleanliness, scenery, campfire at night, and fabulous breakfast made it so memorable. Thanks! We can't wait to come again sometime.

We decided to stay at Bad Rock because we needed to be near the Kalispell Airport and nothing was available in Whitefish Bay. I think we were lucky! Bad Rock turned out to be one of the nicer B&Bs we have stayed at. The Inn Keepers give you the run of the house and always have complementary wine available. Our room was large, well furnished and comfortable. There is a computer available for those wanting internet access. And breakfast was great. Mark knows the area restaurants well and made a great recommendation. We would highly recommend Bad Rock.

First B&B Experience - Rated 10

4.8 on July 21, 2011

My wife and I married on July 4th, 2011, and we wanted a place to stay near Glacier for our honeymoon. We searched around and went with a Bed and Breakfast choice for accomodations. After reading reviews of Bad Rock, we made the decision to stay here, and we are both so glad we did. On our first morning, my wife awoke with an eye issue that needed medical attention. Mark, the owner, was quick to call around and find us a place to seek help. We didn't make Glacier park that day as we ended up needing two appointments to see an eye specialist. The morning meals that were provided to us were exceptional. We enjoyed each and every one of them. Meals were plentyful and came with plenty of coffee and juice. We met many people during our stay from all over this country as well as other countries. We also met people who were repeat clients to Bad Rock. Mark is a very personable and enjoyable owner. We loved our conversations with him. Bad rock provides everything you might need if you forget something, and even offers a complimentary beer and wine treat every night if you so wish. Highly recommend Bad Rock!! You won't be sorry.
