More information

Built in 1926 for the Paganini family, Holly Homestad is an excellent example of "Arts & Crafts" architecture mixed with casual country chic.

You can feel that the people who lived here over the years lived well.

Your hosts, Gerard and Bernadine (Bernie) Oudemans have tenderly refurbished the house and created a boutique B&B only three minutes drive from Franz Josef Glacier village.

Facilities

Choose from one of the king, queen or twin rooms; or the new deluxe super-king suite for that extra bit of decadence.

All rooms have their own private ensuite, crisp linen and bathrobes provided. Start your adventure in Glacier Country with a generous breakfast at the wooden farmhouse table and enjoy the charm of a country kitchen.
