THE ENCHANTMENT OF A BYGONE ERA
The Edwardian Inn is an outstanding example of fine homes that were built in Helena around the turn of the century. Built in 1904, quarter-sawn oak paneling is used extensively throughout the house, and may have come from the 24 sawmills that were in the area at the time. Expert craftsmen in Chicago made the nine original mantels in the house. Eight of them remain in place with the ninth being used as the front desk for the inn. The stairway is of oak and is in excellent condition, with the applied carving and mill work coming from Chicago.
The first floor is noted for the beautiful German wood carpeting which was imported during construction. The detail work in the flooring is outstanding and features numerous different types of woods. Most of the door and window hardware is original to the house as are the transoms above the doors and on the front and side entrances. Two French Drop Chandeliers dating to 1915 adorn the front foyer. All rooms have individual controls for the heating and air conditioning as well as ceiling fans. Each guest room has a connecting private bathroom.
