Big Sky State of Montana Historic Hotel for Sale

The brick hotel, built in 1882 enjoys 26 completely modern guest rooms with full baths on 3 floors. This property can truly boast that it sits on what is known as the “bloodiest corner in the West!” In the late 1800’s, cowboys routinely had drunken quarrels that were settled with a shootout in front of the hotel. In fact, the street-view rooms were the premium rooms, as those guests could have a good view of the action. A large balcony was a gathering place to watch the shootouts!

The historical restoration of the hotel is magnificent. The details are spot on. You feel like you are experiencing Montana’s late 1800’s era, without the wild shoot outs! Yet with modern luxury guest rooms and a top rated restaurant and bar, or should I say saloon. Learn more about the town and the hotel.


Montana is full of interesting and vibrant cities to call home.

Looking for a smaller B&B yet financially viable business? Consider a grand Victorian mansion built in 1903 by distinguished and prolific architect, A.J. Gibson. This beautiful Inn is also magnificently restored.

The University of Montana city location is an ideal place to call home.  Mountains encase the valley, laying the perfect backdrop for three major rivers to wind gracefully through the heart of the city. In the city yet surrounded by acres of lush forest and the glorious Big Sky overhead.
