It is very important (and fun) to search out and highlight the small businesses that keep Montana running and share them with my readers! The first business I would like to showcase for Small Business Saturday, is Ninepipe Lodge & Allentown Restaurant. Ninepipes, or as the locals call it “Pipes”, is located right off HWY 93, between Ronan and St. Ignatius. It is on the east side of the Ninepipe and Pablo National Wildlife Refuge, which is a large protected wetland complex and bird sanctuary. According to their website, it contains over 800 glacial potholes and a 1,770-acre reservoir where over 200 bird species have been recorded.
Ninepipes Lodge provides 25 rooms that can sleep between 2-4 people. Allentown restaurant and sports bar are conveniently under the same roof as the lodge and have very yummy food. If you are in the area heading to Glacier Park or the other direction to Missoula and need a clean, comfy place to stay, I highly recommend this establishment!
