The Bitterroot River Bed and Breakfast is located within the Town limits of Stevensville, in Montana _s scenic Bitterroot Valley . Our Bed and Breakfast overlooks the River and is at the base of the Bitterroot Mountains . We offer a tranquil country-style setting with on-property access to the River, combined with the convenience of being located within a small town. The Bitterroot River B&B is within walking distance of main street Stevensville, which offers art galleries, museums, antiques, groceries, restaurants and other unique shopping opportunities.
The Bitterroot River Bed & Breakfast enjoys river front access to prime trout fishing and other activities available along the Bitterroot. The Bitterroot is well known as one of the finest dry fly fishing rivers in the state. The dry fly fishing season begins as early as March, depending on the weather, and usually ends in late November. There are opportunities for fishermen who prefer wading as well as those who prefer floating and fishing from a raft or drift boat. Our River front access provides the wading fisherman with the opportunity to spend a few hours or the entire day exploring the River on foot. There are other excellent fishing rivers in the area including the Big Hole, Clark Fork and Rock Creek.
Guided fly fishing float trips are available from several local outfitters and guides, and you can go online to buy your Montana Fishing License right here at the B&B. There are a variety of other recreational activities such as hiking in the nearby Selway-Bitterroot wilderness area, downhill and cross-country skiing, and many other local attractions for the family. The area is very scenic and harbors abundant wildlife. Eagles, osprey, herons, deer, elk, and bear are a few of the animals that frequent the beautiful riparian habitat found along the Bitterroot River . Stevensville, "Where Montana Began" is Montana's oldest permanent settlement. It was established when Fr. Pierre DeSmet founded the St. Mary Mission in 1841, at the request of the Salish Native American people who were seeking the "Black Robes" as teachers.
St. Mary's Mission still stands a few blocks from the B&B. A tour of the Mission is truly an enlightening and historical experience. Your hosts, Tim and Shelley Hunter, have lived and worked in the area for over 25 years.
