Built in 1911 for the first president of the University of Montana, this stately, prairie-style brick home sits on the bank of the Clark Fork River, at the end of a footbridge that leads to the campus. With big white eaves and an ample porch overlooking the river—where blue heron, osprey, and bald eagles congregate—this historic lodging offers seven distinct rooms and suites. The honeymoon suite boasts a Japanese soaking tub, king-size bed, private entry, and riverside
porch. The two-room White Water suite caters to families, with two queen and two twin beds. Two rooms have gas fireplaces. Three have balconies. Breakfast offerings include French toast with fresh berries and apple-walnut pancakes, served in the sunny dining room or on the porch.
