My family and I stayed at the Howler's Inn over the Fourth of July. The grounds and wolves are amazing and must be experienced. My daughter and I love wolves and this was the perfect place to stay. The Inn is located in a beautiful valley just east of Bozeman and relaxing on the deck was a much needed treat.

We had a great time getting to know the wolves and being amazed by them. They were truly great to watch. Comanche was our favorite but all of them had their own personality.

Mary Martha is a great chef and the breakfasts were amazing. This was a great stop on the way to Yellowstone/Grand Tetons. We wish we could have stayed even longer. Thank you and say hi to Murph

Howlers Inn is a truly peaceful, picturesque, and very welcoming "home away from home". Beautiful setting, scenery, and home - the log structure is quietly majestic, and beautiful. Mary Matha, Chris, and their daughters are SO laid back and easy going: we felt like we had been there many times before as family members, but, this was our first (but will NOT be the last) visit. We enjoyed walking the roads around their home, visiting with Chris and Mary Martha (and their daughters, too!); their backgrounds and love of where they live make conversation easy and comfortable. We toured Bozeman, Hyalite Canyon, and the area - all worth your time! AND, the WOLVES !!! We never heard of this santuary for wolves before; we got to see them up close, watch Chris feed and comb them - and be part of their pack - awesome experience. The rooms - the entire place - is super clean and kept up beautifully, the in house amenities are most comfortable (TV, video, sauna, ......, ) and QUIET ! (We did enjoy wolf music early one morning, as they responded to a wild wolf in the mountains across the meadow - haunting and beautiful, I will never forget it !!) The breakfasts we enjoyed were splendid: "eye candy" as well as delicious!! Absolutely no negatives, save one: we had to leave too soon; but we WILL be back!!! THANKS, Mary Martha, Chris, Delaney, Alexis, and wolves!!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are good, but, you might ask about being close or far from the wolves - seeing them from our room was unforgettable!

Stayed here in late May. It's in a beautiful setting, with snow blanketing everything when we were there. The hosts, Chris and Mary-Martha, made us feel like part of their family. We woke to wolves howling under our window, then we had a delicious breakfast each morning. All of the guests naturally gravitated to the welcoming, open kitchen area, where we just 'hung out' with everyone. Very easy to navigate the area to Yellowstone and Bozeman, and we received helpful advice on things to do/see from our hosts. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Grab a room that overlooks the wolves!

Sometimes, even after reading Trip Advisor Reviews, a B&B is not the great experience you were led to believe it would be. NOT the case with Howlers Inn.

Our extended family of nine occupied three of the four comfortable rooms for five days. Our three early-teenage grandchildren are already lobbying for a return visit. Their parents and grandparents don't need much convincing.

Chris and Mary-Martha could not have been better hosts. The breakfasts were special, the wolves a treat .... and, because of the scenery, I had to be pried off the porch to take part in the many activities available in the area.

Room Tip: The Carriage House has two bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator and stove. All of the other rooms have mini-refrigerators and microwave ovens.

I've just returned from my second stay at Howlers Inn. The first stay was a few years ago, and I've been counting down the days until I could return to Bozeman and this gem of a B&B.

First, the hosts (Mary-Martha and Chris) are fantastic. They are warm and friendly and don't seem to mind being peppered with questions about Bozeman, the wolves, and best restaurants. The inn itself boasts a number of rooms, the carriage house, and a rec room in the basement with a sauna, big-screen TV, pool table, and game room. The inn is located in a secluded spot with fabulous views of the mountains.

Animal lovers and bird watchers will not be disappointed with views of the wolves and access to the native fauna. While there are strict regulations for visitors in regards to how close they can come to the wolf enclosures, visitors can still see them at close range. The house, too, provides various "peeking" windows into the enclosures. You'll want to be sure you're around between 7:30 and 8:00 p.m. to watch Chris feed the wolves; he is incredibly informative and is available to answer any questions.

Bird lovers: there is an entertaining tiding of magpies that visits the young pack's enclosure in the evenings. I ended up with a few great pictures of them flocking against the backdrop of the mountains.

I've stayed in the carriage house both times and it never disappoints: roomy and homey, the best part is Mary-Martha's outstanding breakfast in the morning, delivered to the room. You might also receive a visit or two from one of the resident cats.

With great hosts, views, and access to rescued wolves, Howlers Inn is the best stay in Bozeman.

Room Tip: The Carriage House has two bedrooms, a living room, a fireplace, and a kitchen. Those in groups or those looking for more privacy should choose this room.
