Well, let me just start by saying 'Wow'. Because that is how we felt, about the whole experience for our first time at The Barrister Bed and Breakfast. The house was full of beautiful antique decor and furniture, a mini-grand piano, beautiful breakfast area, and boasts THE PERFECT covered front porch (which was probably my favorite part) with comfortable table...

Nick and Liane were wonderful hosts! The home is beautiful and it was fascinating to hear about the work that went into getting it to that level of elegance. The rooms were very nicely decorated and a carafe of ice water and a couple glasses of wine were waiting for us each evening when we got back to our room.... More

My daughter chose this B and B as the place to stay while she checked out Carroll college. She chose very well. Nic and his sister Leeann were helpful and very interesting to visit with. The entire house was beautiful decorated but comfortable. The location was excellent to walk around the community and enjoy the history and beauty. We were... More

Ideally located - within walking distance to downtown restaurants, shops and sites (across the street from the St. Helena Cathedral). Nick and Liane are extremely friendly and welcoming. They host Wine and snacks each evening and you have a chance to get the insiders view of restaurants, attractions, sites to see, road trips to take and things to do. Nick... More

This is a beautiful old Victorian home just a short walk from great restaurants and shopping and a gorgeous cathedral. The hosts were absolutely lovely people. They provide a glass of wine and light snacks in the evening and the breakfast was delightful with quiche, yogurt, sausage and toast. The room was spacious with lovely linens and towels and lots...

We just returned from 5 nights at the Barrister B and B. And we had a delightful experience. Liane and Nick made us feel right at home. We had most of the rooms booked for a wedding. We enjoyed the parlor for visiting, the smaller parlor for the guys watching football and a lovely breakfast every morning. They were very... More

This is just a lovely place in a perfect location. No matter what you are doing in Helena, the Barrister is well-located. Plus you can walk to all the major attractions. Last Chance Gulch (the historic downtown) is 5 minutes away by foot, and the capitol area is 5 minutes away by car (or 20 by foot). The place is... More

We had a great night at Barrister Bed and Breakfast earlier this week. I selected them because we were traveling with our dog and they are dog-friendly. We stayed in the Captain's Room, which was lovely, and walked down to Bert and Ernie's for dinner and to walk around the historic district. When we got back, Liane had very kindly... More

Today is the one-month anniversary of our wedding, celebrated at Helena's truly stellar venue, The Barrister Bed and Breakfast, where our hosts, brother and sister Liane and Nick, were delightful on all fronts. In essence, this is a review of two Barristers, its bed and breakfast basic function, and its sublime performance as a venue for a celebration or other... More

The owners here were excellent and appreciative of their guests. The house is old, historic, creaky, quirky, beautiful, classy and a bit creaky! The room was clean and included a small TV and plenty of places to sit and relax. EASY walking distance to Helena's neat downtown where you can walk along the mall area and check out several places... More
