Reviewed July 25, 2011

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hickory House Inn. Our host was a delight and very helpful about things to do in the area. The room was a suite so we had lots of space to relax in.

My wife just loved staying at the Hickory House in the Janie Jane Room. The gardens were beautiful and the breakfast outstanding.

Jan the owner is very cordial.

Stayed here with some friends last fall. We were in Anaconda for the "Big Game Opening Day" shopping day....formerly known as hunting widow shopping day. After a long day of shopping and walking around town, the Hickory House was a great place to relax and enjoy some down time. We played games in the main living room and had a very relaxing, fun evening. Mary Jane (i think that's the right name) came over and locked us in for the night around 11:00. The pumpkin pancakes were incredible the next morning and gave us a good start to another great day taking the Pintlar Scenic Route through Philipsburg and stopping at the Sweet Palace, the Sapphire Gallery and heading back home to Helena.

a girls night out to celebrate opening day of big game rifle season. We were accommodated with extra blankets from our cold evening of walks, comfy rooms and fun games. We borrowed the fridge for our snacks and beverages and enjoyed the company at breakfast and the pumpkin pancakes. At about $35 per person for the evening, it was well worth it!

We were on the road and found the Hickory House Inn on google places as beeing close. It was a last minute, one night stay, but i wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed in the Montana room and had an amazing room and bathroom! She really has the house set up nicely. The breakfast was wonderful and price was great for everything we got.

I would definitly recommend this B&B to anyone!

First off, let me say that the Hickory House Inn was a nice B&B. MaryJane was a good host. You will get your money's worth by staying there - assuming that the amounts charged are correct.
Next, be sure to see a movie at the historic Washoe Theater. First run movies at half the price and reasonable prices at the snack bar. 6 people's admission, popcorn, candy and drinks for under $50. Amazing.
That said, there is an interesting policy of PRE-CHARGING guests the full amount BEFORE arrival. We used a card that we watch very carefully and saw a charge come through before we even left home. I called and was told that they implemented the policy this year, to combat last minute cancellations. I can understand how hard it is to run a B&B with fickle guests who cancel at the last minute. However, I have never run into a place that charged me the full amount before I even leave home. By the way, this policy is nowhere to be found on the website or in the literature.
To top it off, we came home a week later and found another charge on our card for two additional people. The original charge covered our full party and Maryjane had just made a mistake.
Her mistake was not only the erroneous charge, but in not letting us know before she did both transactions.
The end result was two refunds on my credit card - one for a $10 discrepency between the web-posted rates and the original charge, and the second to refund the erroneous additional person charge. What a hassle - it ruined my memories of an otherwise great experience.
Advice to the owners: post your policies prominently and communicate with your guests, especially when you are messing around with their credit cards.

The Hickory House Inn bed and breakfast is a place rich in history…it’s located in the historical district of Anaconda, MT and was formally the parish house of St. Paul’s Church. The former Rectory has 4200 square feet that includes five guest quarters and some wonderfully spacious and comfortable common areas. The Hickory House was built in 1902 and had been a Rectory for most its life, until a female naval officer purchased the property and lived there by herself for some thirty years.

Most recently the home was purchased by Mary Jane and her husband George who restored the home to its natural state and converted the property into the B&B as we know it today. The restoration was a painstaking process as the entire house was donned in brown colors (probably making the former owner, the military officer, feel right at home) and had many modern changes that required undoing in order to get the home back to its rightful state.

Mary Jane had searched high and low, often using Ebay to acquire the vintage hardware and décor needed for the restoration. Today the home looks like it would have some 100 years ago and is a wonderful reminder of the period. The Hickory House is located right in the heart of downtown Anaconda and is walking distance to museums, galleries and restaurants. The accommodations are modest but comfortable. The wonderful proximity is also its nemesis in that traffic noise can be a bit loud, but usually dies down by late evening.

Breakfast at the Hickory House is home-cooked and served on fine china. One morning during my visit we had some of the best blueberry pancakes I’ve ever had, they were thin just like I like them! We also had some sort of sausage patty with an array of spices that provided a ying/yang affect with the pancakes. There was of course freshly ground coffee and orange juice.

Mary Jane is a wonderful host providing great insight, history and recommendations on the area. Mary Jane’s husband, George is a bank builder and has recently accepted a position that will require him to travel a good deal, so sadly they have put the Hickory House Inn up for sale. So, if you know anyone interested in becoming a B&B innkeeper, give them a call directly.
