The Stumptown Inn is conveniently located on the beautiful Whitefish River with views of Big Mountain and within walking distance to magical downtown Whitefish. We are a 10 minute walk to downtown shopping, galleries, restaurants, Amtrak, bus station and the Wave Fitness Center. We pride ourselves on being clean and friendly.
Whitefish was initially called “Stumptown”; Before the arrival of the railroad and people, the area around Whitefish was heavily wooded (and still is today). To make room for a town site, a huge number of trees were cut down, leaving stumps behind. These stumps created problems almost immediately in the form of traffic and making it difficult for new construction – so all these stumps had to be painfully removed.
The name “Stumptown” never really stuck – with the official name becoming Whitefish a few years later.
Whatever your reason for visiting Whitefish, we look forward to helping to make your stay an enjoyable one!
