Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Sam Bernhardt & Patti Jones for sharing their own secrets with BBOnline.com! Why do most travelers stay at your inn?
Rocky Point Ranch is more than a B&B; we are a Lodge and a working Ranch with cattle and Farming of Alfalfa. We also have four pet llamas that enjoy being fed. Our customers come for a variety of reasons. In the spring and fall our customers are hunters looking for Elk, Deer, Bear and Mountain Lion. Of course, we see our fair share of fishermen.
What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?
We are on a very scenic route to Glacier Park and Yellowstone Park. We are surrounded by the Cabinet Mountains, with the Lodge next to the river. We have a boat ramp and dock, so visitors can bring a boat or enjoy fishing, swimming and relaxing. The ranch was built for travelers and vacationers. The rooms are modern and larger than normal B&B stays. We have hosted several reunions and weddings. Our landscape is always changing. We have put in three regulation horse shoe pits, a volleyball court, a trap shoot, batting gage, a fountain and fire pit; Plus, a gazebo, barbecue area and a host of activities.
We are planning some additions next year that include two more rooms for a total of 8 rooms, a game room, pool table and car museum. Rocky Point Ranch is unique in the way it is decorated with family antiques and memorabilia in two of our rooms, plus log furniture and cowboy/Indian art in others. We also have two suites with king sized beds. The great room and dining area have log beams and old pine wood ceilings. A huge mountain lion and bull elk look down on those watching a large screen TV. We have no set times for breakfast, so customers can sleep in and not worry about missing a meal or get up early for a fast start on seeing what Montana has to offer.
If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?
The great thing about our home and Thompson Falls is that it can be a headquarter place to stay while you make day trips to Glacier, Sandpoint, Wallace, Kalispell and Missoula. You can make great day trips to the city, places of interest or explore the back country with short or long hikes. We can provide a daily plan for your activity for each day that you are here at rocky Point Ranch.
What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?
Customers are overwhelmed by the Lodge and the surrounding beauty of the rocky mountains.
What’s the best kept secret about the area?
First of all, travelers are headed to Glacier Park to enjoy the outdoors and they travel through here not knowing the beauty of the area. Glacier is wonderful but it is also crowded. Thompson Falls has a lot to offer without the crowds. You don't have to make reservations a year in advance.
If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?
There are all kinds of mini trips that can be planned. Visiting near by towns, easy hikes to lakes, rivers and water falls. Rafting, boating, kayaks, along with family games, picnics and special dinners.
Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?
Since we are in the country, mother nature is all around. It is a mile to our mail box and newspaper. There is room for horses, cattle and a few llamas.
What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?
All the restaurants in Thompson Falls and Plains have good food. The service may be slow at times because of staffing. The best restaurant for great food is about 40 minutes away called The Harwood House at Quinn's Hot springs resort. However the prices also reflect the great food and service. Customers tell me that the Thompson grill has the best meal in Thompson Falls.
Any good area guides/websites that travelers could reference? How many rooms does your inn have?
We have 6 rooms with plans to build two more. You can see our rooms by visiting our website www.rockypointranch.com. Our rooms are all based on a theme of family, heroes and leisure.
Do you accept pets?
We don't encourage pets of any kind but have accepted well-behaved small dogs. Some customers are allergic to pets. We do have a dog shelter and run for other dogs. If you travel with a pet we recommend that they have a kennel crate for sleeping. We try to keep an open mind and adjust to our customers needs.
