6/10 Good

I picked the Inn because of their great reviews. I booked the Geronimo suite for 2 nights for a little get away. When I arrived my room was not ready- which wasn't a big deal but when it was ready I realized it was not the room I had booked. When I spoke to Kelly she dismissed my concern telling me someone else was in the room I booked and that this one was better because it had the ensuite bathroom. Later she did come and offer to move me the next day to the room I had booked but at that point I didn't want to deal with it. The room I had booked was supposed to be in the most private (and I had hoped quiet) part of the inn. The room she placed me in was on the main hall near the front door where I ended up being woken up at 5 am due to people entering. Overall I was just disappointed. I found it odd that they just moved me to a different room without even asking if it was ok- especially since I had paid slightly more when I booked for the room I wanted. That said the room was clean and comfortable and the owner was friendly enough- I just wasn't impressed and would not stay there again.

Awesome Getaway at Bigfork!
This extremely charming inn located on the bay at Bigfork was a wonderful, relaxing, and enjoyable stay. The service from the manager was incredible. Very friendly environment, and it had all the great amenities Including a pontoon boat ride on the lake! I would highly recommend a weekend or week’s stay! Right in town, it was so easy to get around without having to drive.

A fabulous stay.
Our check in was so much fun. Mark explain the origin of the house that is the inn. It was my partner's and my anniversary and as Mark learn of our purpose to stay there for the occasion a bottle of campange instanly appeared. The inn was comfortable and so convenient to restaurants and the play house. We even were asked to joined the guests in a pontoon ride. So fun and we will return.

Absolutely beautiful with gorgeous antiques, lots of space, flowers more beautiful than anywhere I've stayed and the owner, Kelly, is the greatest! Parking is a nightmare though as you can't get close to building to load or unload and have significant backing up to get out and could be blocked in by corn hole game going on but Kelly is great at helping find you a spot. Definitely recommend. Hope to go back again. The views of the bay are amazing, short walk to everything. Nice interaction with other guests. We wish we had stayed longer to fully enjoy the perks. Would hesitate to recommend to those with mobility disabilities as distance to walk from parking, took me multiple trips to get everything, and to fully use facilities you have stairs to rec room and to hot tub.
