“Grasshopper Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

I have been to the Grasshopper Inn 3 times since January. It is very clean and has a wonderful homey atmosphere. The staff were very helpful and nice. It is nice to have a restaurant and full bar as part of the Inn. The mountains are beautiful and the view is spectacular from any where there but the front deck of the Lodge is the best. Sitting there with a hot cup of coffee or cider and just enjoying the scenery is good for the soul. The rates are very reasonable and so is the cost of the food and drinks. The food is awesome and they are adding new things to their menu. The Chef and Manager are cool. They want everyone to have a good time and enjoy the food and their stay. If you have the chance you need to visit the Grasshopper.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the lodge have better internet.

Leigh!
Thanks for the kind words. You know everyone here loves having you around, and you're so right about the views from the front porch! Its beautiful and sunny out today and the snow is starting to really leave us. Next time you come out it should be as green as can be!

A gem in the beautiful Grasshopper valley of MT. We had a small business meeting there with guests from across the country and we all had a great time, the NEW staff and manager did a great job and were very warm and friendly. The food was excellent, they would prepare and cook anything we requested. The rooms were clean and comfortable. This kind of experience of simple comfort in a unique setting is fast disappearing in America, if your looking for a national chain experience with Sysco pre-prepared foods over 12 months old, then stay with the chains.
We will return!

Room Tip: Some have been renovated recently, ask for one of those. Be sure to eat the BLT, best in a while.

We stayed for two nights, what a nightmare!! I have gone here since the late 70's. I have nothing good to say. Service was rude, room was filthy. We pre ordered our food as it was a birthday party, family get together. Was told by Harvey that the chicken was sold out from under us, so sorry. Walked up behind Liz complaining that they are booked and we are a pain in her.... I could keep going on. We shall never return, it was that bad!! Even the kids commented on how dirty the place was and rudeness of the staff. Went to check out and let them know the key didn't work(didn't say anything before as the staff was very obvious about there dislike for us) Was told they gave us the wrong key, wanted me to pay for everything AGAIN! It was not wrote anywhere on the reciept that it was paid for. The adult that had paid had a sick two year old and left the day before for the er, he is doing much better! She had the reciepts, oh yeah, totally my fault that Harvey was still asleep(10:30am) and hadn't wrote paid down anywhere, one verrrrry mad employee, slammed down the paper, slammed the door because I wouldn't pay again and she had to wake up Harvey.......I just walked out the door and we will take our business elsewhere. Not sure who V Nine LLC is, listed owners, but perhaps the should try some version of undercover boss?

Room Tip: Don't go

My daughter and I were traveling from Spokane, WA with her 2 boys, ages 7 and 9 to do fun things in Montana. What a lucky
find The Grasshopper Inn was. We first reserved a cabin at Elkhorn Hot Springs, but it was rustic with no water or bathroom. When we had second thoughts they suggested The Grasshopper Inn. Can I say straight off that the boys loved this place. It is very close to Crystal Park, where they had a wonderful time searching for crystals and they found quite a few. The fee per car is only $5.00 and you can keep any crystals you find. I actually found a clear one with a point under a log I was sitting on!
Then we went into the pools at Elkhorn Hot Springs right on our way back to the motel.
There is a wonderful old bar at the Grasshopper and a nice restaurant - oh and a 3 machine "casino" where I amazlinlgly won $50. They helped the boys wash their crystals and had a place set up to do it. We felt comfortable letting them roam with "Schmeagle" the beagle. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. You might want to bring a hair dryer and there is no cell phone service. There is tv in each room. Everyone is so friendly - you will taste the real Montana.

We live in the Grasshopper Valley and went to the Inn for Mother's Day dinner. It was excellent and everything was beautiful and inviting for the mothers who are treated there for dinner. Love Eric the cook and Patrick the bartender and waiter. Great dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our time spent there. Kudos!

We stayed at the Grasshopper Inn this weekend and found it quaint with a rural backcountry Montana charm - loads of personality you would never find at a chain place. If you are into being lazy and pampered and can't handle no cell phone/Internet service and rustic charm, this place is not for you! The price cannot be beat ($60 per evening for 2 adults). The room was very clean with beautiful log furniture and unique art and decorative furniture. Lovely view out of each room of the scenic Pioneer Mountain range. We ate at the attached lodge restaraunt twice and the food was wonderful. Delicious prime rib and a nice selection of soup, salad bar, sandwiches, pasta and other items. There is also a beautiful old ornately carved full bar in the main lodge and the fireplace was perfect on a cold evening. We had our three children along (ages 11, 7, 5) and they had fun, enjoyed the food, and we all slept well. There is a fun game room in the basement of the lodge.
