What a delightful B&B! Hosts, Annie and Josh, are lovely, experienced and welcoming and we had a great night's sleep, a soak in the beautiful outdoor Japanese tub and a delicious, gourmet breakfast in the morning. Very well priced and one of the nicest B&B stays ever!

This is the first time we were staying in this specific Montana area and we were pleasantly surprised by The Darby Bed and Breakfast. Would we stay again?? YES! It was a quiet place to stay, furnished to compliment it's beautiful Bitterroot Valley location and extremely clean. The new owners, with restaurant experience, were very, very nice and friendly. The gourmet breakfasts were superb and they accommodated by asking if we had any food allergies and by asking what time we wanted breakfast to be served. We stayed two nights in August 2013 and had two completely different, delicious and beautifully presented breakfasts. We were told what ingredients were in the breakfast items and the produce was purchased at the local farmer's market and picked fresh from their backyard garden. The layout of the house and the bathrooms were handicapped assessable. Guests are free to enjoy both the lower floor of the house and the backyard for relaxing, especially in the evening while enjoying the freshly made cookies and fresh coffee prepared just for them. When you are staying in the Darby/Sula area, please consider The Darby as your home away from home and you won't be disappointed! M and S from Iowa

My husband and spent the night in Darby at this charming B and B while driving through Montana. I enjoyed the garden all afternoon until it too dark to read. Anne and Josh were friendly and breakfast was delicious. Would stay again.

My husband and I stayed one night at The Darby during our recent tour of Montana. Inge was a fantastic host, providing an amazing breakfast, an incredibly comfortable and clean room, and a great patio area in which to enjoy the scenic views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend The Darby unreservedly..

A very clean an lovely B&B, the food was above excellent and so was the service. The Ofuros soaking tubs were a very welcome experience under a full moon after a day of XC skiing. I would go back again and would recommend to anyone.

This B&B was definitely a great place for a quick weekend get-away with my husband. The place was immaculate. Loved the cozy fireplace, the food was outstanding (we are admittedly food snobs), the service was outstanding, and the Ofuro tubs are a must! Inge is very hospitable and makes you feel very welcome. I'd recommend this to everyone. The Bitterroot Valley is so beautiful and sitting in the hot tub at night with the starry sky is a must-do. You wqn't regret it.

I was treated like family by Inge at the Darby during my October 2012 stay. The room was simple and modestly furnished, but the bed and the linens were the standouts there as they were super comfortable and I only spent time in the room to sleep anyway. I had views to the mountains from my room and it was super quiet. The breakfasts were outstanding and easily the best meals I've ever had at a B&B and I've been to more than a few. Inge prepares a multi-course meal as if she is feeding you for a day of hard work out on the ranch: pastries, yogurt and fresh fruit, juice, coffee, and then an amazing entree with usually locally-sourced, gourmet ingredients, piping hot served up just as you're done with the first course. I was in heaven with her vegetarian take on eggs benedict and other incredible dishes. She always made sure I had recommendations for lunch/dinner options, too, and I had a great time visiting some of the hiking and sightseeing destinations she suggested. The common space in the Darby was spacious, open, and very inviting. I spent time sitting by the fireplace in a leather chair reading while looking out across their horse pasture to the mountains beyond. The Japanese soaking tubs are amazing as well. I highly recommend doing that as many nights as you can during your stay. It's such a relaxing experience to be outside with the snow gently falling, soaking up to your chin in the fragrant red cedar of the tubs, watching the steam rise into the clear, quiet night surrounding you. All-in-all I had a very good experience at the Darby and would recommend it to anyone!

We just returned from a delightful weekend at the Darby Bed and Breakfast. Under Inge's skilled and thoughtful care, everything lived up to it billing - delicious and plentiful gourmet breakfasts, plush beds, immaculately kept house, and gorgeous scenery. She also arranged for skilled and professional massage therapists and made sure our soaking tubs were heated to perfection. We will tell our friends and anyone looking for a pampered weekend away.
