We just loved our three night stay at the Beall with Jim and Sandy. They are gracious, hard-working and attentive hosts and so knowledgeable about the history of the home and surroundings. They went above and beyond to make our stay special. The home is so interesting and Sandy has created such lovely gardens all around the home. There were... More

Amazing mansion with wonderful hosts. Close enough to enjoy the Cardinals Ball Park Village yet far enough from the metro area to be relaxing. The antique shops on Broadway in Alton have unique finds for good prices. The river drive to Grafton was fun. We ate at the Loading Dock but would try the Grafton winery and brewhaus next time....

My husband and I decided last minute to get away for our 3 year anniversary on a short trip away from St. Louis, and I am so glad we did! We arrived at the Beall Mansion and walked into a beautifully renovated, yet warm and welcoming mansion. The decor and attention to detail was breath-taking. The room was so spacious... More

This is one of my favorite places! The mansion is beautiful, we loved the chocolate bar and many other extras provided by the hosts. Jim and Sandy are very sweet, and the love for their home and making sure their guests are welcomed is evident even before arrival. To our surprise our room had been upgraded with a whirlpool tub...

Our stay at the Beall Mansion was fantastic! My husband had contacted them to have everything set up when we arrived. The room was amazing from the rose petals on the bed to the whirlpool tub for two. The antique furniture and comfortable bed made it hard to leave the next morning. Jim and Sandy were great hosts and thought... More

My husband and I decided to visit Beall Mansion as part of a day of relaxing and sight seeing. We truly enjoyed the tour of Beall Mansion. Jim was very friendly and knowledgable and clearly loves the home he showcases and has opened as a Bed and Breakfast. It looks like a charming place to stay! I would definitely stop... More

When I come to St. Louis, I am staying here. It is a mere 20 minutes to downtown but is a world away from urban. This B&B is one of the best run that I've stayed in. And the rooms are well-appointed: whirlpool baths, flat screens, fast wifi. Oh, and did I mention the 24 hour chocolate bar. The owners... More

the historic Beale Mansion is a perfect B&B experience. The owners' warmth and skill at running this place makes it very special. They love hosting people. And they did an amazing job of doing a difficult restoration. Beale has so many special touches I will not try to list them. Huge trees, large gardens , fountains and an interior that... More

This B&B is beautiful, romantic and quaint. The owners are very friendly and will give you a tour when you arrive. The mansion itself is a little museum, with one exception. All the old furniture that is part of the "exhibition" is in use. You can drink your cup of tea and read your book on the old sofas and... More
