My Mom and I stayed at the lovingly restored Barrister B&B and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Pleasant conversation, peaceful surroundings though you are right smack in the middle of historic downtown Helena, and delicious homemade breakfast. We plan to return someday. Thank you Nick and Staff!

The Barrister is a wonderfully restored house in the heart of Helena. We only had one night and we came in late, but they picked us up at the airport and spent time showing us around the city and then throughout the house.Definitely would go back.

Delightful stay with a gracious host, entertaining conversation with other guests over sherry in the evening, and a wonderful breakfast all in a lovingly restored building. All added up to a very comfortable and refined stay in Helena.

A pleasant gem of a B&B. The hosts are friendly and informative. A nice wine social hour and tasty breakfast. We stayed in the Barrister room and highly recommend it. Comfortable and spacious by any B&B standard. Easy walking distance to downtown and very friendly people are all around. Cool capital building to explore. Well worth the stay!

This beautiful Victorian villa is a short distance from the Last Chance Gulch, and across the street from the Cathedral. The hosts are extremely friendly and the entire ground floor is open for the enjoyment of the guests. Really liked the afternoon wine on the verandah. The room was elegant, with a beautiful decorative fireplace. Fine toiletries are provided in... More

We booked from London and right from the start had a good feeling about Barrister B&B. What a wonderful house and delightful rooms with many little special touches (but it would spoil the surprise if I told you in advance).

We had a great over night stay at the Barrister. This was our second time to enjoy this grand home. It is always a privilege for us to experience restored, historical structures. The Barrister definitely allows one to do just that. This late 1800s home has been restored to showcase beautiful craftsmanship and exquisite attention to details of the era.... More

This was our first visit to The Barrister House. Nick is an excellent host and very cordial and welcoming. Our room was very nice, roomy and comfortable. Although this is an older property, they have done a wonderful job of updating it in a very elegant fashion. Breakfast was very good. We got acquainted with other B&B guests at breakfast... More
