The Barrister is a truly amazing place: warm, comfortable, and inviting. It was my first B&B experience and it was terrific. The rooms are very comfortable and with all of the antiques Nick, the owner, has collected, the place looks as it did when it belonged to the local church. Jacquie, the Innkeeper, is a wonderful hostess and fabulous cook. Breakfast at the Barrister is out of this world. The B&B is very close to the quaint downtown area which has lots of shopping and other local eateries. Plus, the beautiful Helena Cathedral is right across the street from the B&B. This is a can't miss if you're ever in the area and don't forget your camera.

This place was recommended to myself and my colleagues by the inn keeper at The Barrister B&B. The food was very good and the selection of entries covered a very wide geographic range. This place would make for a great romantic dinner to celebrate a special occasion or to simply have a meal that is not so everyday.

Don't judge this place by the name because the sandwiches are great. They use a unique cylindrical baking style for their bread such that it looks like you're eating the sandwich right out of a can. It's really something how they pull this off which makes the presentation terrific. They also offered up to one hour of free wireless Internet access which made it a great place for a business lunch. Be sure to check out the artistic offerings on the walls.
