The Deepwater Bay Bed & Breakfast overlooks some of the finest outdoor recreation opportunities in the upper Midwest. Step down the hill from your cozy room, and you will be standing at the shores of Deepwater Bay on Lake Sakakawea, known as one of the nation's premier walleye fishing destinations.  The ranch is located on the Lewis and Clark trail, and the expedition was in this area on their way west and again on their return.  Lewis and Clark's Corp of Discovery spent the winter of 1804 nearby at their hastily constructed Fort Mandan, downstream from Deepwater Creek near the Knife River Indian Villages.

The Ranch House


If you prefer, stay on the farm and enjoy the day-to-day farming and ranching lifestyle.  Ranching consists of a cow/calf operation raising F1 black baldy calves from  Polled Hereford and Angus cow herds, while all types of small grains are raised using no-till methods in the farming operation.  Nearby outdoor recreation opportunities include exploring, wildlife observation, outdoor photography, bird watching, golf, fishing, hunting, farm and ranch life, or simple relaxation.  Fifteen minutes away is the Paul Broste Rock Museum in Parshall, which houses the world's largest private collection of cut and uncut stones. We are only an hour away from the giant coal mining draglines and associated power plants, three hours from Medora, the Medora Musical, and the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, and three hours from the International Peace Gardens. Time your visit right, and you may even enjoy one of the Pow-wows held at nearby White Shield and New Town. 

 

Guests are welcome in the living room anytime

Accommodations

The Deepwater Bay Bed & Breakfast is a modern Bed & Breakfast only a few miles south of Parshall, North Dakota. It is part of a working farm and ranch overlooking Lake Sakakawea. Guests have several options.....many choose to stay in private bedrooms in the main residence and enjoy home cooked meals. Others prefer to rent a three bedroom guest house or one of the eight two bedroom bunkhouse/cabins, all complete with a kitchen where they can do their own cooking if they so desire.  Four fully self-contained (including showers) fifth-wheel campers may also be rented set up in the campground area of our yard which has a  lined campfire pit and a restroom with shower.  All guests can enjoy the remainder of the ranch.  

All inside facilities including the main house, guest house, campers are non-smoking for the comfort of our guests.


We have a corral for those who want to bring their own horses for trail riding in the area.  Dogs can be accommodated upon request.

Location, Directions, and Travel Arrangements

Deepwater Bay Bed & Breakfast is located directly across from the Deepwater Bay boat ramp just 15 minutes from Parshall, North Dakota on Highway 1804.  From Parshall take highway 37 14 miles south to where the road curves to the east, go 1 mile east to where Highway 1804 tees into 37, go 1 mile south and 1/2 mile west on Highway 1804.  From Garrison check your odometer as we are 40 miles west on Highway 1804...take Highway 37 west from Garrison.  After about 12 miles it will turn into Highway 1804 but just keep going straight west and after about 33 miles straight west from Garrison 1804 will curve to the north.  About 6 miles north it will curve back to the east at mile marker 212, and we are on the south side of 1804 about 1/4 mile past mile marker 212.  A Bed and Breakfast sign is out at the approach to our driveway.  Most supplies, including gas, groceries, bait, and fishing tackle are available in Parshall.  We are two hours from Bismarck and 75 minutes from Minot.  Both cities are served by Delta Airlines, United Airlines, and Allegiant Airlines.   For those who would like to fly in in small planes, both Parshall and Garrison have excellent paved airports.
