Bozeman's Lehrkind Mansion Bed and Breakfast

719 N. Wallace Avenue , Bozeman, MT 59715 USA (Show map)


Enjoy stepping back in history within the elegant and relaxing atmosphere of this Queen-Anne Victorian Mansion. Built in 1897 as a brew-masters residence, The Lehrind Mansion now sits as the anchor of one of only five Historic Brewery Districts listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Furnished throughout with period antiques and live plants, the setting provides for the perfect get-away.Relax in one of the spacious parlors and listen to tunes from a seven-foot tall music box or one of several victrolas. Or make your own music on the period piano. Located only seven blocks off Bozemans Historic Main Street, you are within easy walking distance to downtown gourmet restaurants, brewpubs, the historic shopping district and theaters. Skiing, both downhill and cross-country, are only a drive of 15 minutes away. After an active day of skiing, hiking, shopping or sightseeing, treat yourself to a soak in the hot tub off the back deck and gaze into the stars. After a restful night's sleep under a down comforter, wake to the aromas of freshly brewed coffee, fresh baked bread or muffins, and the delicious gourmet breakfast that awaits you downstairs. You are once again refreshed as a day of adventure lies before you under Montana Big Sky!

A wonderful, fair priced and beautiful retreat in the heart of Bozeman and at the edge of the Bridger Range

Chris was a delightful host and was sure that everything we needed was taken care of. He put us up in the Muir Room, which was full of character, beautiful furnishings and decorations. Each morning we would be treated to a delicious breakfast, hot cup of coffee and friendly chat. I would HIGHLY recommend Bozeman's Lehrkind Mansion Bed and Breakfast and will surely stay there next time we have the pleasure of visiting Bozeman. Also, Chris is a knowledgeable birder- so for all of you naturalists out there, I'm sure you'll be glad to have a well informed guide at your fingertips.

Pre-Christmas Getaway

5 on December 28, 2012

My husband and I took a couple days before Christmas to sneak away and get some alone time prior to the family arrival. This was our first stay at the mansion. The mansion was beautiful with its Christmas decor. Upon arrival, Chris showed us around the mansion and shared stories of the mansion, the area, and the decor. The music box in the living room is truly amazing - a one of a kind item for a one of a kind place. We cross country skied, shopped downtown Bozeman, and enjoyed our surroundings at the mansion. The breakfasts were simply amazing. We met new friends at the breakfast table. And enjoyed our time in the delightful room. Truly a fantastic experience. It's already on our "do again" list. A must visit - to add to your Bozeman experience!

Best place to stay in Bozeman

We very much enjoyed our stay with Chris at the Lehrkind Mansion. He served delicious and nutritious breakfasts and has a house full of beautiful antiques. We especially like the huge music box in the living room. The bedroom and bed were most comfortable.

This is a wonderful B&B with amazing antiques. The breakfast is incredible. We enjoyed the group at the table in the morning. Well worth the few extra dollars. They aim to please.

Wonderful time at the Lehrkind

My wife and I spent two nights at the Lehrkind and had a wonderful time. It is everything you would want from a B&B and then some. The mansion is beautiful. We had a great room. The large bath included a clawfoot tub. They really made us feel at home. The highlight of the stay was the magnificent breakfasts. We have stayed at other B&Bs over the years, and not one could top the breakfast at the Lehrkind. We will definitely stay there the next time we are in the area.

A find

We really enjoyed our stay at this labor of love. You could see that the owners took great care to recreate the Victorian feeling of the house. Our room was quiet, clean & comfortable. The owner took time to give us a brief historical overview of the home and area. Additionallly we received excellent referals to local restaurants, brew pubs and sights.

Beautiful, hospital B & B

A Memorable Experience

We had a delightful time in this charming mansion. It is filled with lovely antiques. It is surrounded by trees with many species of birds. The food is excellent. It is located within walking distance of downtown with all its shops and restaurants. And the owner is most gracious.

Nice place to stay

Made a last minute reservation here for the 4th of July. Chris was very kind and accommodating to my check in times and questions about holiday events in the area. Loved that it was in walking distance of the fairgrounds for the fireworks (great display, too!). The bed was comfy (not too squishy, which I hate!) and the room was very pretty. The carpets have a kind of musty smell but granted, the house is over a 100 years old. the bathroom really really needs a makeover, with sad linoleum and broken glass on the dated shower door, and a toilet that needs to be jiggled so the water stops running. But breakfast was very tasty and I loved that the portions were human-sized not oversized. Asparagus and mushroom omelet - yum!
