The Sleepy Senator


Sleepy Senator in Helena Montana is near the state office complex. This early 20th century townhouse has recently been remodeled, decorated, and furnished into a luxury suite containing an atmosphere once found in private clubs and exclusive hotel suites. The two upstairs bedrooms share a Victorian-style bath. The Business Center is located conveniently next to the guestrooms. Meals at the Sleepy Senator vary from a light continental breakfast for commercial travelers to a full hot ranch-style breakfast and even dinner may be provided for guests who request the Modified American Plan level of service. We prepare food to meet most special dietary needs. Simply let us know your preferences when making reservations.

Montana State Capitol Offices and Historical Museum are only 3 blocks from The Sleepy Senator. While staying at the Sleepy Senator, you may want to stroll around the Montana State Capitol Building grounds and, if weather conditions are favorable, you could enjoy a spectacular "Big Sky" Sunrise or Sunset. A short hike to the top of Sugar Loaf Hill provides a breathtaking panoramic view of the city and the Prickly Pear Valley. You can enjoy a relaxing sauna, then after a brisk shower, curl up with a snack from the kitchen on the cozy overstuffed parlor sofa to read or watch a movie before retiring for a refreshing night's sleep.

Several chain restaurants and the Capitol Hill Shopping Mall are close by. The Wise Penny Consignment and Antiques Store and Clarkson's Media Photography Studio are next door to the Tourist House. Tim Holmes's Art Studio and Gallery are directly across the street. Holmes is a metal sculptor with many international exhibit credentials. It is just a short walk through the quiet neighborhood toward downtown to Java Bob's CoffeeHouse, The Gothic Saint Helena's Cathedral, The Holter Gallery, and the Myrna Loy Performing Arts Center.

My goal is that your stay at the Sleepy Senator will help to make your visit to the Helena Community an even more enjoyable experience.
