Goldsmith’s Inn is a historic, three story, brick home that was built in 1911 as the University of Montana president’s house. The house has served many university purposes over the years; it was once a fraternity, a lab, office space, among other uses.
In 1988, the building was slated for demolition to expand university parking. Amidst community outcry over the planned destruction of the historic and beautiful home, the Inn was saved by the Goldsmith’s. In order to preserve the home, the Goldsmith’s undertook an audacious plan to move the 4000 square foot house from the southern edge of campus to the northern banks of the Clark Fork River. The home was then full renovated to create seven classic and comfortable rooms, each with private, hand-tiled bathrooms and other modern amenities.
For over twenty years, the Goldsmith’s have been welcoming guests into the beautiful home to experience the beauty of Montana and a piece of Missoula history.
First time here, have tried to stay before but it was always fully booked, now we know why… Lovely rooms, delightful staff and a fabulous breakfast each morning, we’ll be booking ahead in the future. Thanks for the great stay and we’ll see you next year.
