stay at the
amber bear inn

Amber Bear Inn is a quaint country inn nestled in the hollow of Beaver Peak on a 400-acre wildlife sanctuary. The Inn boasts a full service bar & restaurant as well as a 24 -Hour Casino and ATM. It is bordered on the south by the Kootenai National Forest. The area is Montana's only rain forest and contains an impressive variety of trees, plants, wild berries and wildflowers. Birds and wildlife abound.

The inn is named for the area's cinnamon-colored bears that are frequently blonde in color when they first emerge from hibernation. A petting zoo of animals is a subtle reminder that the grounds were a ranching homestead for close to 100 years. Water from Brewer's Creek cascades down the mountainside and was one of the ingredients used in a large bootlegging operation in earlier decades.

The Inn is dog friendly and the area is a horseback rider's paradise. We have accommodations for your horse should you wish to explore the National Forest on horseback while staying here. We also welcome Heron Happy Trails, an equestrian facility which rents horses for pleasure rides or lessons on our grounds.

Peace & Quiet

Such a great place to stay for some serious peace and quiet. Beds were soft. Rooms were warm. The couple that runs it are friendly and welcoming. Food was great. And the views were breathtaking. Saw some elk, deer, peacocks and even got to see the bear

I  was there to shoot a wedding up the valley, but found the Amber Bear the most restful, recharging stay of my summer. Comfy bed and jetted tub healed my body and the 5 star restaurant recharged the rest of me
