The Warren Wing is named in honor of a fun, faithful, favorite guest at Chico, the late movie actor Warren Oates. Warren was one of the many colorful characters that regularly visited Chico in the mid-to-late seventies when the Art family was finally getting used to their role as innkeepers. Warren’s warm personality, ready and willing helping hand and terrific sense of humor personified the best of the Wild West in a way that symbolizes what is best and friendliest about Montana – and the Art Family hopes that spirit will live on forever in the Warren Wing and the rest of Chico.
The Warren Wing, which opened adjacent to the Main Lodge in October 1999, houses 12 rooms and one suite all with subdued contemporary country furnishings. The two-story wing overlooks the front lawn, and is connected to the Main Lodge on the first floor. First floor rooms have two queen size beds, and second floor rooms have one king size bed. All rooms are non-smoking, have private bathrooms, internet access, coffee pots, hair dryers, irons and ironing boards.
