"Springtime at the Inn"

Each of the four private suites are unique in size to offer a variety of accommodations.  Unlike a motel or bed & breakfast, our inn offers a home away from home.

Sheridan, Montana is one of the rural west's great small towns.  This little community of 800+ residents has true western ambiance.  Located in the Ruby Valley, it is 99 miles from Bozeman, 67 miles from Butte and 99 miles from Yellowstone National Park.  One of the most enticing things about Sheridan is that you can walk everywhere.  A stroll through town will take you past the heated public pool and the lighted tennis courts and several great shops.
