Monte couldn't have been more accommodating and our room was clean, spacious and attractive. We have a Tesla and wanted to plug it in overnight to be ready for us in the morning. They have camper hook ups that are 240 V and 40 amp so it was able to charge up very easily. We were the only one staying...

Thank you for the review, I am glad we able to make your accommodations comfortable and I am glad the charging for the car worked. Hopefully the rest of your trip was safe and enjoyable. Monte

Close to everything, enjoyed our stay. Belated anniversary stay over labor day weekend. The adjoining restaurant was okay. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Made us a surprise treat for our anniversary too.

Thank you for taking the time to review, I hope your anniversary was a special one and I want to thank you for choosing us to celebrate. Monte

This B&B is not your typical B&B, there are separate "motel like" rooms that are very nice size and breakfast is served in restaurant at the front of the property. There were several different choices for breakfast including eggs, pancakes, oatmeal and all the usual sides. The breakfasts were all very good but it would have been nice for something...

Thank for the time to submit the review, while we did not get 5 stars, we definitely will try hard next time. On a side note, we will offer additional items on our new breakfast menu... great suggestion! Monte

The owner was very accommodating of my late arrival, and very personable the next morning as he went around saying hi to every guest during breakfast 7am-8am (while double-hatting as the cook since the chef could not make it that day). I happened to be the only guest staying in the east wing, so it was very quiet. The room...

First, Sweetgrass Inn BNB is not your traditional BNB by having the Shipwreck Grill on the property. Check-in was a breeze at the grill by the owners Monte and Amy and we were shown our suite. It was spacious and well appointed and we were extremely comfortable during our stay. The room and property was well maintained and clean and...

We were not particularly impressed with this B&B. The check in process was extremely disorganized and although the room was reasonably clean, it was very dated. The property was not well maintained and the diner was not somewhere that we would want to eat. While it was in a nice location, we thought that $160 a night was far, far...

Zach, Thank you for your review, I wanted to research information regarding your stay such as dates, room and such however you must have registered under another name.

I hate to be in the minority of reviewers on TripAdvisor, but I would be misleading if I were to say Sweetgrass Inn was Very Good. It is an average B&B. I would probably give it 3 and a half stars if that were an option. Here is my reasoning: I understood going in that this would not be your...

Hello Rob, I want to thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Sweetgrass Inn. I often have this conversation with many guests regarding the Bed & Breakfast experience verse what we do as an Inn. Many B and B's have a minimum night stay whereas we open it for one night stays. In doing this,...

Check in is done at the restaurant, Lee's Shipwreck Inn, which opens at 5 PM and is on property. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet, yet convenient to the highway for sightseeing. The linens were clean and the bed comfortable. There was plenty of hot water for showers. Breakfast is served in the restaurant and is made when ordered....

In my opinion this is not a traditional B&B. If you are looking for a roadside Motel with breakfast included, this is your place. Location is good. We had a large room and a large bathroom. Bed was comfortable. The rooms are clean but need updating. There were tacky little signs all over the place requesting that we do this...

Dear hghstandards, Thank you for your review, while it definitely is not one that we are proud of, I wanted to address all of your concerns. You are correct, we are not your typical bed and breakfast, few, if any have a full restaurant on site. While most Bed and Breakfasts do a designated breakfast with a designated time for...
