WElcome to the Wassweiler Fine Dining & PUB

Ferdinand Wassweiler’s original hot springs stood not far from the current Broadwater Hot Springs and Fitness.

After selling part of his land to Colonel Broadwater, Wassweiler, a German immigrant who followed the rush of gold miners to the Helena area, built a second facility in 1883. His second creation combined an Inn with a separate bathhouse where travelers as well as locals could enjoy a hot soak.

Today, Marci Andersen has restored this original 1883 Inn & Bathhouse into a fine dining experience steeped in good old-fashioned Montana history. With history, hospitality, and an honest-to-goodness menu, we welcome you to Helena’s newest fine dining establishment.

Amenities: 
Wheelchair lift
Private dining room available
