We (Betty and Mary, we are sisters) purchased the mansion in 1986 and have many wonderful and loving memories living there and raising Mary’s daughter Sarah in the home. Betty worked at State Nursery in floral design and Mary graduated from Carroll College. Circumstances led the two of us in different directions, Betty to Las Vegas where she continues her career in floral design and Mary to Idaho where she continues her career in social work. We leased the big house for several years to families and in 2007 decided to do her justice by turning her into a vacation rental and at that time she became Helena’s Little Mansion. We hired many skilled laborers and local craftsman to help us do everything which we were unable to in the time we had.

We had a brother and family members that lived in Helena, we fell in love with the area from the easy access to the many lakes, hiking trails, Gates of the Mountains, The Great Divide ski area, Reeder's Alley, Last Chance Gulch, the Cathedral and Marysville the local ghost town with a great restaurant called the Marysville House. We liked living in the State Capital and the small town feel where you know your neighbors and the clerks at the grocery store.
Helena's Little Mansion is a beautiful mansion and the woodwork is beyond comparison in the area. It is a wonderful experience to stay in such a unique vintage home. Each window provides a panoramic view of the valley, Mount Helena and the Sleeping Giant.
My girlfriend and I stayed here last month, and will certainly be making it our annual retreat.
Every last detail has been thought of with this home. As a business traveler, I was a bit skeptical about internet access in Montana, but I have to admit, my fears were unfounded.
Owner, Mary Smith was very accommodating of our special requests, and a great source of local knowledge.
Each of the rooms are perfectly appointed. The home is very clean. The kitchen is great too. We had a barbecue one night out on the patio... Such a refreshing change from eating out every night.
Nearby to downtown, so we took the Montana mansion tour - even saw the governor's old mansion. Canyon Ferry lake the next day was stunning as well. The Gates of the Mountains are a must see!
I would recommend this property to everyone.
Helena's little mansion was a great place to stay. I would strongly recommend it to anyone staying in the area.
Quite an interesting century plus old home. Very well maintained, especially for as old as it is. Loved the history and location.
We had a terrific stay at Betty & Mary's home. We loved that the house remains true to it's historical architecture. The bedrooms were great, comfortable beds, a fully stocked kitchen to work with, and situated in a quiet neighborhood on the outskirts of town. The place worked perfectly for a reunion of college friends -- big enough so our 6 adults weren't too cramped in, but small enough so we didnt get lost from each other either.
We'd definitely stay here again.
We stayed here for a weekend, and it was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfortable, and we saw several deer in the backyard a few times. My 3-year-old daughter thought it was a beautiful castle! We will definitely be staying there again.
I was in Helena for my mother's 90th birthday with my two adult children, their spouses and my 4 grandchildren. The home we originally had rented was all of the sudden unavailable the day before we were to arrive. Betty and Mary were so accommodating. They figured out how to turn the house quickly after the previous guest checked out so that we had a place to stay. We enjoyed the house so much. Lots of room for the 9 of us and great porch, patio and yard for the kids to play in. The kids loved the 3rd level bedroom hideout. It was in the upper 90s the 4 days we were there and the air conditioning was a lifesaver. We had other family members over for meals and to visit and there was lots of room for everyone. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit.
