Workshop Accommodations

The Bray has partnered with Mountain Meadow Inn, a nearby bed and breakfast, to provide housing accommodations to workshop participants available for a reduced rate.

Mountain Meadow Inn
Mountain Meadow InnThe Mountain Meadow Inn offers a comfortable, countryside bed and breakfast less than a mile from the Archie Bray. Dedicated in 1928, the Mountain Meadow Inn's brick and granite walls originally housed one of Montana's thriving Odd Fellows homes. The mature landscape, including a pond, is now a pastoral playground for countless whitetail deer, red fox, coyote, song and migratory birds, and a myriad of other native creatures. Enjoy the walking trail surrounding the property or relax on the front patio enjoying commanding views of the mountain ranges surrounding the Helena Valley.

Your stay at the Mountain Meadow Inn will include a hot continental breakfast, airport shuttle and one morning and one evening shuttle to the Bray studio. Kitchen and laundry facilities are also available for guests. Smoking and pets are not permitted at the Mountain Meadow Inn. Workshop participants can choose from either an individual or shared room. Roommates in shared rooms will be same gender, unless specified otherwise. (If a roommate is not available your reservation will be switched to a single occupany.) Common areas within the house are co-ed including shared bathrooms.

Housing is available on a first-come first-serve basis. The earlier you make your housing request, the better chance of receiving your preferred choice. The Bray will take housing requests during your workshop registration or any time after. We will submit requests to the Inn and guests will be contacted directly to confirm their stay. Payment will be made directly to the Inn and will take place at the end of the stay.
