Shelby Attractions

Shelby's beautiful backdrop is the Sweet Grass Hills, which is known for excellent hiking trails with breathtaking views. The hill's shadow is the Golden Triangle, Montana's richest wheat and barley region. Shelby's vibrant business district contains several blocks of locally owned businesses offering clothing, gifts, local art, souvenirs, restaurants, taverns, and a movie theatre. Additionally, you will find one of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses in Montana located along the Marias River. You're in Big Sky Country, so recreation is very popular with hikers, hunters, and fishermen. Make sure you stop at the Carousel Rest Area and take a spin on their fully restored carousel for a fun day for everyone!

Our hotel sits at America's Western Crossroads, so there's no telling where the road will take you. Whether you're here for the weekend or just passing through, we welcome you to Shelby and hope you will enjoy your stay in one of Montana's most picturesque places.
