Mark and Dana Bateman
The newest owners, Mark and Dana Bateman, are most recently from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Dana was born in Oklahoma and Mark was born in Utah. They have been married for 30 years and have five children as well as seven grandchildren.
Mark owned a muffler and brake shop in Oklahoma and the couple would buy old homes, fix them up and sell them for extra income over the years. After their children left the nest, they decided to move to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to experience life on the Beach.
After their youngest daughter and her family moved to Montana, they decided to pursue a new journey that would move them closer. They moved to the beautiful Bitterroot Valley in October of 2016 and purchased the Hotel in March of 2017. Since then, with some new paint, furniture and finishings, they are making the hotel their own. The couple resides here in the hotel and have created their home in the loft. They are always around ready to make each experience a great one for their guests.
Come visit and see the buffalo rome, elk and deer graze and so much more.
There are hiking trails all over the Bitterroot Valley.
