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!
Spring is here! Stay at the Stump and enjoy all Whitefish has to offer.
It’s time to Golf, breakout those golf clubs and enjoy the sun!!
