Your Host

Meet your host, Nick Jacques

A Fifth Generation Montanan

Nick grew up in Helena, mere blocks from his present home at The Barrister Bed & Breakfast. He attended Catholic grade school and high school and was an alter boy at the magnificent St. Helena Cathedral, located across 9th Ave. from The Barrister. Nick is a graduate of the University of Montana, a retired criminal defense attorney, and is now living his dream life – still taking care of people’s needs but in a more positive, wholesome, and appreciated atmosphere.

Nick purchased the mansion in 1991, and after extensive detailed restoration, opened The Barrister to the public as Helena’s second bed and breakfast inn. Nick is a wealth of information about the history of, things to do, and places to go in and around the Helena area.
