Monarch Garden Inn
We know you have questions about the coronavirus and what it means for you and any vacation plans you might be considering.
Most of the experts are recommending that we Shelter in Place for the next 8-12 weeks. Therefore, out an abundance of caution, we will begin to accept bookings in mid-July.
This is our home. If you choose to join us, you can rest assured that every doorknob, light switch, drawer pull, etc. will be thoroughly sanitized before your arrival, and we will greet you with a smile from 6 feet away!
We trust that you, like us, will keep abreast of the situation and do what's right for your family. If that means cancelling your trip, even the day before your scheduled arrival, we will refund your money in full, and offer you a 10% discount on any future reservation.
So, please relax! You can make a tentative reservation with the understanding that you will lose nothing if you must cancel your plans. We hope we can welcome you this summer, but it's not the end of the world if you need to reschedule.
What's most important is that we work together to keep both of our families healthy and safe. Thank you for considering us for your next adventure!
Did you know that Monarch butterfly numbers have crashed over the last 20 years, and they are being considered for the endangered species list? We have Rescued, Raised, and Released over 500 monarch butterflies in the last 5 years, and, weather permitting*, will teach you how to do it, too! Join us for Monarch Egg Hunts. Watch as Monarchs emerge from their chrysalises right before your eyes. Help us tag and release them. Create memories with your family that will last a lifetime.
* We have Rescued, Raised, and Released Monarchs for 5 years now. If the weather conditions are right, Monarchs have arrived as early as June 7th and 8th. However, if we have a cold, rainy Spring, they have arrived as late as June 29th, July 12th, and July 22nd. They migrate to Mexico beginning mid August through mid September, and that's when we tag them.
Later, discover the wonders and wildlife in Yellowstone National Park. We offer Free Travel Planning! Learn from professional wildlife photographers. We are located 30 minutes from the historic Roosevelt Arch at the North Entrance.
Our home is also 10 minutes to Chico Hot Springs for gourmet dining, swimming in the hot springs pool, massages and pampering at the Day Spa, horseback riding, and the historic saloon, as well as several Yellowstone River fishing access points along Hwy 89.
We invite you to book your next vacation and join us at the Monarch Garden Inn here in Montana. We are eager to share our extensive knowledge of the Park and our success saving Monarchs so you can come to love and hopefully help Monarchs in YOUR hometown, too!

The views from.the bedroom and livingroom are fabulous...elk meandering, hawks flying with mountains as backdrop. Kitchen has all you need, and the jacuzzi tub is wonderful after a day of exploring.
