We stayed 2 nights at Bad Rock and had an unbelievable time. Bill was so accommodating, giving us ideas for our Glacier National Park trip. The room was so clean and cozy. The breakfast was more than I expected. I’m gluten free and they made a special breakfast for me (waffles with strawberries and bacon). The views are amazing. Was the best part of our 9 day trip. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. With being one of the largest bed and breakfasts in the state of Montana we seem to have far larger rooms than most establishments. If you are Gluten-Free make sure that we sit down with you and set out a meal plan for your entire stay...many guests in the past have greatly appreciated the vas selections of GF meals for their stay. LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION...we have some of the best sights in Northwest Montana. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Safe travels.

One of the best B & B’s we’ve stayed at! The attention to detail is extraordinary. The food was exceptional and plentiful. They had our room set up to our needs prior to our arrival. The owner, Bill, was willing to spend time with us to not only orient us to the property, but also guided us to make the best use of our time while in the area with great recommendations on hikes and places to eat. The property has many amenities to take advantage of that make it apparent you are being catered to. The staff is also very friendly & helpful.

WOW, your words make what we have done here ...."over the top from beginning to end". First of all, thank you for the review. Secondly, the wife and I can not do what we do without the outstanding staff that we have here this year. They are the true heroes of our team. Angie and Letty - the Queens of the kitchen and meticulous housekeeping that you both do; Mel - a true workhorse and exhaustive work attitude...housekeeping was never better; Randy and Roger - the Handy-man's handy-man... their knowledge and expertise are second to none; Tim - the King of our landscaping...the beauty you see here at our place is solely his doing...there is no greener thumb than his. We seek to make everyone's stay one to remember. Our staff allows us, the wife and I, to spend all the needed time necessary to guide our guests to a memorable stay here in Montana. Thank you again for the great review. Be safe.

Close to Glacier NP and several other sites worth visiting in the area. Staff and owner were very attentive and personable. Owner very knowledgeable and helpful to find places to visit and sites to see. Breakfast was always fresh and delicious. Cabin was clean and cozy and the on-site amenities provide value beyond the price. Will recommend to any family or friends heading to this area.

We absolutely loved spending time at Badrock Bed N Breakfast. The hosts Bill and Roz are wonderful along with their rocking staff. Each day they prepared fantastic breakfasts. They also have anything you need if you want to hike, swim or picnic. We also had away breakfast bags delivered to our room, when we went for early morning hikes. There is a washer and game room for guests to use during their stay. The location is very close to the park, Columbia Falls and Flathead river. I would recommend this B & B to my family and friends.

Thank you for the review. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay at our little slice of heaven. Our cooking staff is the best..." I will make sure they hear just those words". It's important for incoming guests to make sure they get a property tour. During this tour, many things are identified that the guests are able to use and if overlooked the stay at our BnB is just not as magical. LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION. We hope your stay here in Montana will keep you coming back year after year. Be safe.

It was a good location and an overall pleasant experience. One of the best B&B's we have stayed at! Bill, the host, went out of his way to make sure our experience was perfect. The grounds were beautiful, the game room great and a washer and dryer - fantastic. I would recommend Bad Rock to anyone.

My husband and I planned a weeklong trip to Glacier National Park and stayed at Bad Rock Bed and Breakfast our first night before entering the park. We could not have found a more perfect launching spot for this much anticipated trip. Not only was the location perfect—-close to airport and gate to West Glacier—-but the hospitality and the accommodations set the tone for a very special adventure. Upon arrival we were given a tour of this lush, well tended property, by our gracious host/owner, Bill, including the use of a club house with a complete kitchen—-which we used to store the groceries we had purchased at a local grocery store near by. We stayed in a spacious, immaculate cabin room. Comfortable mattress and amenities galore—-small fridge, microwave, table and chairs, and a rear patio with field and mountain views. A delicious breakfast of homemade waffles and fresh strawberries was served with bacon, juice and coffee. I could go on about the beauty and accommodations this property Offered, but the highlight was the generosity of our host who offered knowledgeable tips for our adventures. We used every one and I believe it enhanced our experiences in Glacier. Bill’s hospitality and humor will be a memory and story to be told to our friends and family. Just wished we had bookended a stay at Bad Rock our last night in Montana.

Thank you for the very kind review. Treating our guests like family is our goal and along the way, we inject humor every chance we get. Our major advantage is our location to everything (GNP, grocery stores, entertainment, river, and the over 75+ restaurants). We seek to give all incoming guests a tour of the property and all the amenities that our BnB has to offer. Sometimes when guests check in after hours they miss all the niceties that we offer and often miss out on things that our BnB has that set us apart from all the rest. We have original hewed cabins that were built in 1992 and are one of the standouts on our property. I will be sure to pass on your appreciation of the food and cleanliness of our property to our outstanding staff. Staying at a Bed and Breakfast SHOULD offer you more personable service and a plethora of local knowledge. Life is short....enjoy all that you can. Thank you again. Safe travels.

If you are in this area, splurge on this B& B. The location is beautiful, and the breakfast is delicious! Bill, the host, is friendly and very helpful! The St. Mary’s Lake room is beautiful! We loved their tea station which was always available.

Thank you for the review. We here at Badrock Bed and Breakfast welcome all to our active Hay Farm in the country of Columbia Falls, Montana. We seek to serve our guests food that is locally grown and meals that are authentic to the upper northwest. I will be sure to thank the staff for their hard work and cheerful attitudes...we couldn't do what we do without our staff. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Be safe.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. With over 1500 books in our expanding library, we have something for almost everyone. We are constantly improving our in-house (free check-out) cachet of hiking accessories. Probably the hottest topic of every season is our food...I will be sure to pass on your fondness to the kitchen geniuses they’re worth their weight in gold. We look forward to your return. Be safe.

What a great place to stay. The owner, Bill, gave us a heads up on needing tickets for GTSR and likely saved our whole trip. Very nice and accommodating. Clean, large space. Actual cooked breakfast that changed every day. Has a game room with air hockey, pool, a bunch of games etc. Has trekking poles, bear spray and other useful items you can borrow.

Thank you for leaving a review. Our country estate property is nestled in the middle of farms ranging from 5 - 50 acres...enough room to let every guest enjoy the large canola and hay fields just outside the window. I will be sure to pass on your appreciation of our breakfast' and housekeeping to our friendly and accommodating staff. What's unique about a bed & breakfast is that they offer local information and special insight into the surrounding areas...we are grateful to have been able to help you during your stay. It's great that you took advantage of all the hiking accessories that the BnB has to offer. Thanks again. Be safe.
