Deer Crossing Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 4 Hamilton B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 22, 2008

This is really how a B&B should be. We had a lifetime experience and would definately want to stay here again.

We arrived at around 6PM and Stu gave us a warm welcome. He showed us around and told us about breakfast, the surroundings and much more. "The only rule we've got here is that you should relax and enjoy your stay." he said.

We had reserved a two night stay for three people in the Big Sky Suite, which is located on the ground and first floor. We loved it. The bedroom on the ground floor is not very large but very comfy. There's also a separate bathroom located next to the bedroom.
The master bedroom on the first (and also top) floor was incredible nice and warmly decorated; everything in cowboys and indians style. Huge windows all the way around and a superb terrace with a view on the lower breakfast deck, the garden, and the fields with horses and occasionally deer and wild turkeys.
The bathroom needs some explanation. The bath and toilet where only separated from the room by a partition wall. This meant that privacy was not really there. Luckily there was the other bathroom downstairs so the whole situation did not bother us at all.
We found the beds very comfortable and they had lots of pillows.
The whole house is filled with beautiful furniture and other things worth inspecting. Books to read, paintings to admire, local photo´s etc. Another thing that we loved is that it was all carpeted.

"Deer Crossing Saturday Night Campfire" was another highlight of our stay. The guests but also some neighbours where there and Stu, Linda and Linda's mum made sure that we all had a good time. There were drinks, s'mores and music.

Breakfast was served at eight after Stu (or somebody else) sounded the triangle that hangs outside on the patio. Our first morning we eat in the Sunroom. There was fresh fruit, waffles and much more.

After we went out for the day (Stu and Linda told us everything we wanted to know about the surroundings, hikes, shops etc.) we were a little surprised that the beds were not made. Nobody seemed to have been in. That was a little odd but gave us a great feeling of privacy! If you did want to have your bed made they would have been too happy to do so.

The next morning Linda assumed that we wanted to have breakfast outside. The table was set and the breakfast was good a different from the day before.

It must be clear that Deer Crossing is well worth staying at and if we would ever go back to Montana we will definitely pay Stu, Linda and her mother a visit even if it would be totally out of our way.

We booked at the last minute so had no choice of rooms for a 2 day stay but were comfortable and well cared for. Stu and Linda know the area well and were helpful and unassuming. Wildlife comes on the property and the breakfast was very good. Would certainly stay again

Located a few miles off the main road about 10 miles south of Hamilton (make sure you have a map or a cell-phone for directions), Deer Crossing B&B has to be a quintessential Montana experience. The out buildings, one the original homestead, house two of the 6 guest accomodations, and they would be our first recommendation for privacy and adaptability to the outside (windows open for fesh air and breeze, or warm and toasty, hyou won't miss the sounds of nature either way). The hosts are warm, friendly, welcoming and knowledgable. Ask them about the Lewis and Clark expedition that passed close by, their horses, fishing, skiing (only an hour away and sounds like a great winter trip), the San Diego Zoo and the Civil War. (The new owners apparently bought the B&B about 5 years ago after being loyal customer for many years!) Breakfast was excellent (the bacon smell was a tantalizer, and the coffee fresh ground and good).
