10 Best Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Helena, Montana

airbnb helena mt

Aptly encapsulating the spirit of the American west, Helena is a destination for all. Boasting nearly 120km (75 mi) of trails, there’s a lot waiting to be explored around here. Else, the city’s historic roots are no less impressive – head out to the Montana State Capitol building, Mansion District, Carroll College campus, or one of the many amazing museums here and you’ll know what we mean. Step out to grab a taste of Helena’s booming food and beverage scene with a side of awesome live music. A trip to the “Queen City of the Rockies” is well worth it. Listed below are some of the best Airbnb vacation rentals in Helena, Montana, so scroll down and choose one.

1. Awesome home at the base of Mount Helena (from USD 79)

Another superb option for two guests, this Airbnb vacation rental is located at the foothills of Mount Helena and it boasts doorstep access to trailheads and stunning views.

Note that this place is not suitable for kids up to 12 years of age, and you need to climb a few steps to access the home’s entrance. This rental has to be booked for a four-night minimum stay.
