My husband and I stayed at Howler's Inn as part of a summer cross-country trip. We'd heard Bozeman was a great place to visit, so we put it on our list. Bozeman is great, but the highlight of our trip was certainly Howler's Inn. We stayed for three nights. After traveling the country from the East Coast (and staying in B&B's all of the time) I can confidently say that Howler's Inn ranks as the best we experienced. Mary-Martha and Chris are very warm and friendly, so much so that we remarked to family, "it feels like we're staying with old friends!" That being said, one should note that the owners live on-site. If you don't like the experience of sharing common space with owners and other guests, or if you prefer a B&B that is more like a hotel (hands-off owners; limited face-time with other people) then this may not be the accommodation for you. We enjoy the aspect of talking with other guests, so staying here was just wonderful. The breakfasts are delicious and the rooms are beautiful and comfortable. (I should add that I appreciated hand-made soaps and shampoo provided!) We stayed in the Western room and reveled in our top-notch view of the mountains and the wolves. And, ohhhhh, the wolves are fantastic. Howler's Inn is truly a unique, yet at the same time, familiar place to be. We have already made plans to return.
