There are only a few places you can go to where you feel like you could make that place your home. In the summer of 2011, my aunt and I took a trip to Bozeman, Montana. This wasn't new for us at all since we go here every year. But when you arrive there, it is like a dream. The mountains are big with snow tips, while the green hills in front of them rise. When you drive on the roads of Bozeman, you can see long, flowing rivers that look like they could go on forever. But these descriptions are how Bozeman, Montana is ever time we come. What was different about this trip, is the place we chose to stay at that year. This place was called Howler's Inn. You are probably wondering why it is called Howler's Inn. When this couple first started the Inn, they had taken in wolves to take care of them and feed them. These wolves aren't the belligerent wolves you would normally think of. They are more like well-behaved dogs in my point of view. It is even safe to go up to their fences and pet them. At night, they will howl and make the most amazing sounds you have ever heard. It isn't too vociferous and chaotic, but it is peaceful. When you first get to the Inn, there are two separate houses. One is the guest house that people can rent out, which is where my aunt and I stayed. The other is the family who owns the Inn’s actual house. But people who stay at the bed and breakfast tend to sleep in the rooms available in the main house. The guest house had two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, and a bathroom. It feels like you are staying in your own house, which made me feel safe and secure. The individual rooms contain two beds, a big bathroom, and beautiful views. Either place you choose to stay in at Howler’s Inn, you are guaranteed to be in luxury. Since it is a bed and breakfast, Howler’s Inn will serve you food right when you awake. When you walk into their big kitchen, you can smell wonderful things happening in the room. There’s the smell of coffee, bacon, and so much more. Every morning meal was different, and every one of those meals was delicious. The family who owned the Inn was the nicest people you could meet. They were very polite and sincere, which made me feel like I had known them for a while. Usually after our big breakfast, we would go to the wolves’ voluminous cages and pet them most of the morning. When petting these beautiful dogs, I would look out into the hills and mountains and muse about how lucky I was to be able to experience this feeling of being so relaxed. I am most definitely coming back to Howler’s Inn!

Room Tip: Every room you stay at is just amazing!

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Howlers Inn! We love having the chance to talk to people about wolves in general and our wolves specifically. We do want to let the public know that the USDA, who licenses us, does not allow interaction between the public and our wolves. So we do ask guests to stay 5 feet back from the fence at all times. When we have young pups in the house, that is a different story....

We were looking for a place to stay while visiting our son who is attending Montana State University. He recommended we try Howler's Inn and we could not have been more pleased. This is truly a home away from home. Our room was spacious and filled with everything we could possibly need during our stay. Lovely amenities as well. The breakfasts were delicious and different each morning. The wolves, right outside our window, were an added bonus. Mary Martha and Chris knew so much about their habits and it was so interesting to learn a little bit about the wolves as well as watch them in action. We also enjoyed the location, just a bit out of town, and very easy to get to Bridger Bowl. We are looking forward to staying here again on our next trip to Bozeman. Thanks for making us feel so comfortable in your home!

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely!

It is amazing to think that a little over seven months ago David and I were soaking up the wonderful atmosphere of "Howlers Inn".....on our first visit to Bozeman, Montana - a long way from Australia! Mary Martha and Chris have created a place of magic....deep into the countryside, yet, not isolated - exuding warmth, even though the weather outside was far more chilly. The delight in being met by this amazing pair (and their equally delightful children) was only increased when, from under the table, appeared two 6 week old wolf cubs/pups.! The Wolf Sanctuary is home to several of these magnificent beasts - varying in age - and their welfare is carefully monitored at all times. At the point of our leaving ( a few days later) the two little charmers (wolves!) were being introduced to their elders - prior to their integration.
The accommodation is superb - homely, comfortable, friendly, beautifully located in amongst the rolling hills - with snow-capped mountains to add that magic of the views. Breakfast in the warm kitchen was something to be anticipated - and the ambience was heightened by the family cooked meal!
This was our first stop on a 3 week Tour in America - and truly, I could think of no better way, or place, to have made a start to what turned out to be an amazing holiday.
I would love to think that one day, maybe, we would experience this truly remarkable place again....maybe ............... .......thank you Mary Martha and Chris for such a memorable stay.

We only were able to stay one night and wish we could've stayed at least a few more. Mary Martha and Chris were wonderful hosts and the breakfast was to die for. Mary Martha even made me a gluten free version of her famous pancakes and they were fantastic.

Our room was wonderful, cozy and clean and we spent a lot of time walking outside and looking at the wolves. Our four year old daughter loved Howlers and did not want to leave the next day. She loved seeing the wolves, playing on the swing set and watching one of the many children's movies in the TV room in the basement.

If you want a very quiet, peaceful, cozy getaway then Hower's Inn is the answer. I loved how it was set back from everything and how quiet it was at night. We live in a big noisy city so it was amazing having the very silents nights of Bozeman.

Outstanding B&B. We had a marvellous couple of days staying here in Oct 2011. Mary-Martha and Chris are fantastic hosts and breaky was so yummy. The wolves are gorgeous and it was lovely to be able to watch them from our room and get up close for a pat (through the fence). We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Any of them would be wonderful - it is all good.

Thanks so much for your kind words. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us. The wolves are marvelous creatures and we are blessed to be able to care for them. Just a quick note that the USDA, our licensing body, does not allow interactions between the public and the wolves, so we ask guests to stay five feet back from the fence when viewing the wolves outside.
