My husband and I did a road trip through Wyoming and Montana in August! Before our trip, I picked this inn randomly off of the computer website as we knew with our sketchy itinerary we would be in the Dubois area. We were so happy we stopped here! Owners and staff were so friendly...felt like we were visiting long lost relatives! The bed was the most comfortable we had on our entire trip...and c'mon!!! ....where else can you have linens fresh dried in the Wyoming air!!!! Shower...again....the best of our whole trip! The river behind the inn is great and what a place for campfires, s'mores and meeting new people! My husband was able to have fly fishing lessons and even went on an evening fishing adventure! LOVED this place and hope to go back again!

My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary, and it was better than we could have hoped for. First of all, the three night stay at this Inn was donated to a summer camp for a silent auction, to help fund the camp and camper scholarships. My husband and I purchased this visit at the auction and decided to use it for our anniversary, which was Labor Day. The owner was planning on closing the Inn that weekend, because her son was getting married, but she decided to keep it open for us. She had some friends run the Inn for the weekend while the family was out of town celebrating, and they were the most lovely people ever. Everyone was so kind, friendly and accommodating. Their brand new water heater for our room broke, so they opened up another room just so we could have hot showers. They also left us an adorable "happy anniversary" message in chalk on the sidewalk outside our door and wine inside to celebrate. All this to say, the people who run this place are generous, loving, and have the most caring hearts out there. You'll be well taken care of and just feel relaxed. The rooms are clean and comfy, the river is peaceful, there are s'mores every night, the town is quaint and there are fantastic places to adventure nearby. Good wifi and hundreds of movies to borrow if you'd like a night in. We definitely loved our visit and highly recommend staying here!

The room was clean and comfortable. No cable but they have many DVR's which were delightful. The too cool weather cut short our sitting by the river. Too bad. Next time! Liz & her crew were very friendly and helpful in every way. We even learned of the fresh baked pies at the "Cowboy Cafe."

We stayed in this motel on the TransAmerica Trip on our tandem bicycle. Liz is a very nice, welcoming and caring host. The room was clean. The laundry is dried in the warm Wyoming air rather than in a dryer. They also offer loading stations for electrical car (which we did not need). The shower was the best we had in 24 days on the road in the northwest of the US. A large unclogged rain forest shower head with a very strong water pressure. Heaven after riding 50 miles over the Togwotee pass!
