We booked this place after finding out the resort we planned to stay in was not available. Hosts Marilyn & Gary were very pleasant, room was clean. Needs maintenance (electrical, ceiling fans, leaky shower door) and updating. Breakfast scarce, not too healthy.
thank you for your review. I was not aware of shower door and I will look into it immediately. as for the ceiling fans I love them, they circulate air better than anything else that I have found. I have listed the breakfast provided. Muffin, fruit cup, granola bars and oj. Thank you for staying with us and hope you come back another time.

Very clean. Comfortable beds. As mentioned before, water pressure not so good in the bathroom attached to the bedroom with the whirlpool tub. Owners are very friendly.
We had one of the water heater units out and it has been repaired and working great. Sorry you had problems

We stayed at the Montfort's two nights, and could not have been more pleased. The room was cozy, clean and comfortable. Marilyn and Gary were extremely friendly and attentive. Everyone is saying it, but you can't hear Gary sing, and not be tickled. Thanks to the Montforts for sharing their home and their stories. A nice place to stay when far from home.
Thank you and hope you come back again

We found ourselves in Cougar after dark on 9/4/2012. How lucky for us that the motel was full but that a helpful staffer recommended the B&B. Gary & Marilyn were warm & charming. Loved Gary's guitar-playing & singing! The place is comfy & clean. We slept well. Highly Recommended!! Tom & Susan from Delaware
thank you We were happy to have you drop in. hope you come again

Gary and Marilyn were very gracious and accommodating hosts. Their B&B is located within walking distance to restaurants, gas stations, and groceries. Also close to the outdoor recreation sights of Mt. St. Helens. A great place to stay when climbing Mt. St. Helens.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Gary and Marilyn are friendly and sweet people! The next time we go explore the area, we will be staying here again! I rated the dining because it made me but we took our meals for hiking so didn't eat the breakfast provided or in the area. There was more than enough for us and it looked appetizing! Gary came out and sang a couple of songs for us - that was such fun! He is a good entertainer! I wish the second night we would have been up for more singing. See you guys again soon!!!

Beautiful place, very clean, and the owners couldn't be more accomodating! The gentleman played music for us; it was hilarious! "If my nose ran money, I'd blow it all on you", and "I just don't look good naked anymore"... I'd love to go back there again, and I recommend it to anyone.

We visited this B&B for our 20th wedding anniversary. Perfect spot for exploring the south end of Mt. St. Helens. And we loved having this cozy place to come back to after a day of hiking to relax in the soaking tub. Gary and Marilyn were wonderful hosts who displayed the perfect balance of friendly conversation and giving us space and privacy.

"Salt of the earth" is the phrase that occurs as one visits with Marilyn and Gary Monfort. Their greatest source of pride seems to be their independence and passion for service. The location in the woods of Cougar, WA is beautiful. Close to the lake, surrounded by forests and visted frequently by lots of wildlife. I can't recommend the Monforts enough.
