The Wildlife Vacation

Photo of a Montana Sandhill CraneAt Boulder Hot Springs Inn, Spa and Retreat Center, you don’t have to leave your room to have a wildlife vacation and there’s more to see if you do.

The sandhill cranes come every summer to nest and hatch their young. They grace us with their songs and dance as they feed and play in the wetlands in front of the Inn and Spa. They seem not to mind the deer grazing and the foxes and coyotes hunting small prey nearby in the wetland meadows.

These residents of our 300-plus acres are sometimes visited by antelope, elk, moose, beaver, and eagles. Bird-life abounds. Moose and elk bugle during rutting season. We can also recommend hikes and vistas for wildlife sightings and watching.

The trip down the Missouri often offers glimpses of eagles, young and old, elk, deer and mountain goat and sheep and many and varied birds and waterfowl.

Montana treasures its wildlife and Boulder Hot Springs Inn and Spa is a wildlife sanctuary. No hunting is allowed on our property and the wildlife know it!
