Reviewed August 10, 2013

This is a old inn that is located downtown Martinsdale. There is a small cafe that is open for lunch and dinner. The menu is mostly sandwiches and soups. They do claim to have the best chicken fried steak. We had the mushroom and swiss burger, the crazy mountain burger and the open faced roast beef sandwich. All were very good. The burger patties were hand made. The mushroom burger was 1/3 lb. The crazy mountain burger was 2/3 lb and on a hoagie bun. The roast beef sandwich was on light bread smothered with brown gravy. For desert we had the peanut butter pie, the cheese cake and the rhubarb pies. They were good also. All were made there. The special for the day was clam chowder and quiche for $8.95. We didn't try it but it looked good. The Inn and cafe will take you back in time with the decor and surroundings. Be sure to bring cash or a check because they don't take plastic. You will have to walk across the street to the ATM.

This is a very old, rustic hotel that's used mostly by hunters. Bathroom down the hall. No heat in the rooms, just downstairs, and it comes up the stairway. Very "homey." The owner had several suggestions for activities. The Bair Museum about a mile away is a must see for anyone who's in the area.

The food at the hotel is excellent! Just a basic menu, but so very good. Well worth going out of your way just for a meal.

My daughter and I spent a Saturday night here while visiting the area this past weekend. In a town of 35, it's a cozy, rustic hotel with rooms upstairs with a shared bathroom and a restaurant downstairs. We had a small room with a twin and double bed and a dresser. It was stuffy with one small window but cooled off when we opened the door to air the room out. a big fan ran nonstop in the hallway. The bathroom was large and has a claw tub and shower stall. The water was hot and plentiful. I wish there were outlets in our room or the bathroom. I had to go to the downstairs bathroom to run my hair dryer. But it's what I expected and that was fine. Antiques, handmade quilts and linens, and old furniture all throughout the hotel. I liked the vintage paint by number picture of a deer in our room? Our dinner and breakfast were delicious and all homemade. Our dining companion was a grizzled and very nice local who regaled us with stories from his life. He, along with the owners and staff were very friendly and welcoming. Cash and checks only keep the rates very reasonable. As mentioned in other reviews, visit the Bair Museum and shop at Ray's Sports and Western Wear in Harlowton. If you can catch a movie at the Harlo Theater. $4 admission and $1 for a large, hot bag of popcorn. We saw the first digital movie and were glad our knees weren't in our laps!

Don't expect fancy amenities here, but do expect a gorgeous, small town setting and an off-the-beaten-track experience. Rooms are small, but comfy, and during our stay, we were the only ones in the hotel, so we did have a private bath. One of the great attractions here is the home cooking: the chicken-fried steak is practically world famous. They also make all their own jam, salad dressing etc. The proprietors have their eyes on the details. There are not many places left like this. Be sure to walk out to the reservoir and do a little bird watching!

Want to experience the real old west? Few places are left, so don't miss this opportunity. It's like staying in your Gramma's house, if Gramma had a dozen + bedrooms. The heat comes from a wood stove in the parlor, which floats up the staircase to the rooms upstairs. The bathroom is large and contains a clawfoot tub and separate shower (it's small, so don't drop the soap or you'll have to stand on your head to retreive it). All share the bathroom. No fluffy robes provided for midnight bathroom runs, but we didn't run into anyone else. If you need a lot of electrical appliances to ready yourself for the day, simplify. Electrical outlets may not work, and those that do are not conveniently located. No tv, BUT they DO have wifi, so you can check your Face Book Status! Lots of opportunity for great camera shots around town. The Bair Museum is a must visit, open Wednesday-Saturday (maybe Sunday too, can't remember).
Cooking is done on sight. They serve their own home made Raspberry Jam. The Sour Cream Lemon Pie really is light and delishious. The food is just like being home on the ranch like Mom used to make. The owners raised their 5 children right here for the past 22 years, but they are willing to sell to the right people, someone who will carry on their tradition of cozy home, family, friends and food. $53.50 including tax for two people, one night.

Room Tip: If it's cold outside, a room closer to the stair case will be warmer, and closer to the bathroom...

The Crazy Mountain Inn was an old hotel serving miners at the turn of the century. This delightful inn now is run by Peter and Cheryl, with love, laughter and an eye for comfort. The rooms are furnished like the old days, but very comfortable and quaint. There are no rooms with private bath; you share a large bathroom down the hall. That freaked us out a little bit, but it ended up being no big deal. The bathroom was always clean and nice. The restaurant is great; they put a candle on my pancake for my birthday breakfast! Cheryl bakes some of the yummiest pies I have ever tasted! (Written up in Montana Magazine for "Best Pie in Montana") There is little to do in Martinsdale, but the reservoir is fun and all the mountains nearby hold hours of pleasurable hiking and adventure. This seems like a place best suited for adults.

Room Tip: Don't bring children, it would drive the other guests crazy. If you are either early birds or la...

My wife and I stayed here in September, 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The inn is a genuine old time hotel with creaky wooden floors, the bathroom down the hall, a house full of antiques and western memorabilia, and an atmosphere that genuinely takes you back a hundred years into the real "Old West". The facilities are squeaky clean, and the hostess is friendly and informative. The location is on the main street of a tiny little town that boasts about 40 residents if I remember correctly. It's a step back in time, and a thoroughly enjoyable one at that. Don't miss the Bair Museum while you are here. It's just down the street a ways and is an extremely interesting museum/former home of a sucessful Montana rancher who at one time had over 300,000 head of sheep.
