In the mood for exceptional French cuisine? Looking for a peaceful night’s sleep in a historic bed and breakfast? Fancy hanging out with some ducks and geese while taking in the sunset over Mount Helena? You can have it all at the Oddfellow Inn & Farm, minutes from downtown Helena.


This unique inn was originally the Montana Lodge No. 1, Independent Order of Odd Fellows Home, constructed in 1910. The building burned down in 1926 but was rebuilt in 1928. Up until the mid-1970s, the property functioned as a retirement home for the members of this fraternal organization, along with their widows and orphaned kids. Over the years, the inn has seen a handful of owners, mostly operating the brick building as a bed and breakfast.
