The SpaceHelena is a great place to visit. Located halfway between Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, Helena has been called, "The Best Little Art Town in America." My house is very centrally located. The capital complex, which includes the Historical Museum is only blocks away. A major grocery store is also close. Going in the opposite direction, the downtown area has theaters and shops, art galleries, restaurants, and bars. There are walking trails close by, and many lakes in the surrounding area.
There are three bedrooms on the second floor, plus a bathroom with a tub/shower. My guests basically have the second floor to themselves, as my bedroom is on the first floor.
The "Montana Room," is more rustic, with antique furniture and mountain-themed artwork. This is the largest of the three rooms. It has a queen sized bed, and a desk area for those needing to work.
The "Costa Rica" bedroom is lovely and the bed itself is soooo comfortable! (a queen size bed.) My friend and I traveled to Costa Rica a few years ago and so I filled this room with the many things I bought from that trip. I have a small refrigerator in this bedroom for guests to use.
The "Bumblebee Room has a full-sized bed. There is a "chalkboard painted" wall, and so you can spend time drawing your own masterpiece!) This yellow, white and black room is so cheerful and there is a nice desk for those needing a work space.
The "Bumblebee Room" and the "Montana Room" have their own sites, with their own calendars, so check these out if you need more than one room.)
I work long days on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and every other Sunday, but am around on the other days as I teach art/music classes. I have a Keuric coffee and tea maker (one cup coffee maker), and I generally leave out something quick to eat, like banana bread and/or granola and yogurt. I often have fresh fruit out as well.
My backyard is lovely. I have put much time and energy into landscaping this small, quiet spot.
**** New!! On the days that I am home, I will be offering private hour-long music and/or art lessons for an extra $50 per person. Please let me know when you book if you'd like this option! Guest AccessII have a beautiful Tuscany kitchen that you are welcome to use. My living room and dining area are cozy spots for you to sit and relax. Good news! Even though I'm not a TV watcher, I just recently started getting cable service, so you are welcome to check it out! I also bought a "smart TV" which has wireless capability so that you can stream in movies.You are also welcome to check out my music room, where I have a plethora of musical instruments and sheet music. When the weather is nice, you are welcome to use my bikes. Interaction with GuestsI work part-time, (long days on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and every-other Sunday. If I'm not at work, I do enjoy chatting with the airbnb guests! The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is wonderful. Again, the location is ideal in terms of seeing the city, as you can walk or bike to almost everything. I would describe the immediate neighborhood as being very eclectic. Every house in the neighborhood is unique, ranging from tiny houses, to mansions. Our "South Central" neighborhood just held a neighborhood party, indicating the level of community and neighborhood involvement. Getting AroundAgain, when the weather is nice, you are welcome to use my bikes. You can walk to the grocery store, to walking trails, to the Capital complex and to the downtown area. Other Things to NoteThis old house only has one full bathroom. :( I have a half-bath on the first floor, but there is only one bath/shower, so my guests need to share! (This has not been a problem, as generally I don't have multiple guests. However, there are occasional times when all three airbnb rooms are rented.
