It's a little out of the way but worth it. Hospitality and the food are fantastic. Ryan is a great chef and Suzanne is very welcoming and a wonderful hostess. We really felt at home here and would've liked to have stayed longer. Beautiful location, very relaxing. We'll definitely stay longer next time.

My wife and I stayed here two night in early April 2013, and had another couple with us the first of the nights. The Inn is off the highway about a mile and somewhat isolated, if a mile can be called isolated (not really). It's a beautiful home built as a B&B and turned into a "dine and recline" a... More

I booked The Great Bear Inn for my husbands 30th Birthday. In one word – “AMAZING”. The staff was beyond wonderful; we felt like we were visiting family. The food is indescribable (a custom cake was made for my husbands birthday - one that he stills talks about!). We had read online that the chef was professionally trained - but... More

This is the first review of any type I've ever made for either product or service. I just don't make reviews. Except this time I feel compelled to share with all what an incredible experience staying at The Great Bear Inn turned out to be. Plush accommodations were only part of the experience. Kudos are also due to the chefs... More

For the past two days, I have been struggling with whether or not to write about finding "heaven on earth" in Montana. Why, would anyone in their right mind want to tell the world about this amazing find? I wanted to keep it all to myself, but alas, decided to let others in on The Great Bear Inn. I frequent... More

We stayed at the Great Bear Inn for a week in 2012. The grounds, setting, and architecture of the Inn are simply gorgeous. A wonderful compliment to Glacier National Park. We wanted a place to relax and unwind....and we found it! The furniture is high-end rustic, the bed very comfortable, interior elements perfect. The owner Susan is very hospitable, very... More

Being born and raised in Montana...this place is the most amazing place I've ever stayed. No matter what direction you take to get to the Great Bear Inn, you're blessed with beautiful scenery all around and it just gets better upon arrival. We were welcomed with open arms by Susan and her clan of dogs, which are very friendly and... More

We have stayed here twice, and both our rooms were very comfortable. Absolutely loved the food, Ryan is an excellent chef. We will definately... More
