We stayed one night at the Bitterroot Bed and Breakfast and really enjoyed our stay. The room was really nice. We had a view of the mountains off in the distance which made it even better. The breakfast was especially good... Tim is a great cook! Tim and Shelley are very personable and made us feel right at home.

Innkeeper Response

Restful, Serene, and Bucolic

Tim and Shelley were very hospitable and accommodating. My schedule meant that we needed to have breakfast at 7:15 rather than the usual 8:30. No problem, Tim cheerfully had a lovely breakfast ready at 7:15 each day. Every thing about our stay was superb and we would happily return if our travel plans get us out to the beautiful Bitterroot River Valley. We loved the setting on the river, the facilities, and the camaraderie. I only wished I had time to try a little trout fishing.

Would stay there again

This B&B was clean, quiet, and close to both the town and the river.

Wonderful Weekend

My wife and I would recommend this to anyone. Beautiful location, beautiful rooms and the best hosts. But don't book a room here unless you want a peaceful, relaxing time. Thank you both for a great weekend.

Great Find!

My husband and I spent a long weekend with Tim and Shelley at their B&B while I was participating in a workshop and we found everything wonderful. Clean, quiet and situated on the beautiful Bitterroot river facing the mountains. The breakfasts were incredible!

Most Excellent

We stayed here Sept 25, to Oct 2, 2012.Beautiful home, extremely comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast, serene, quiet, truly a home away from home. We could not have asked for a more delightful place to stay for our week in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley. We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to our friends.

Innkeeper Response

Comfortable B&B

5 on September 30, 2012

We had a two night stay in September 2012. This B&B is in a beautiful setting along the Bitterroot River. A great location for touring the Missoula area and the Bitterroot Valley. The rooms are clean; the breakfasts were tasty. The front porch is very inviting for relaxing/reading. Tim & Shelley are gravious hosts. Would highly recommend this B&B.

Innkeeper Response
