My friend and I stayed at the H.S. Clay House B&B about three weeks ago and had a wonderful time. The house was so interesting and we loved looking at and exploring the different rooms of the house. The M&Ms in every room were amazing! We loved the welcome punch and we were even treated to Leigh bringing us our... More

Out trip to H.S. Clay House was amazing. The decor is outstanding and breakfast was amazing. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and engaged us in delightful conversation over breakfast. They make you feel as if you have known them for years.

Wow! What a magical place to just go and get away from all the shenanigans of the world. From the very moment of meeting Leigh at the door with her pleasant hospitality and welcoming spirit to sadly packing up and taking a cookie for the road. This B&B is a hidden gem that my husband and I plan to visit... More

Very genuine and hospitable. Delicious breakfast!! Pool and garden provide a relaxing outdoor atmosphere. Rooms are all decorated with antiques that provide visual appeal. B&B is within walking distance of a couple wineries and restaurants. The only downside is shared bathrooms.

We have stayed in many B&B's and this was THE best experience we have ever had. My husband and I spent our 37th anniversary at the H.S. Clay House Bed & Breakfast. We stayed in the Turrett Suite...spent 2 nights here in Augusta. The house itself is a feast for the eyes, the hospitality and service impeccable, the couple who... More

My husband and I found the H.S. Clay House online while searching for wineries and accommodations near St. Louis. It was even better than pictured on the website! Everything about it (and our wonderful hosts) was full of character and charm. Leigh and Alan were friendly and welcoming, making us feel right at home. We were a little nervous about... More

My Husband I were celebrating our 17th year anniversary at the HS Clay B and B, there were a number of couples also celebrating love and marriage this weekend. One particular event stands out and we will never patronize this place again. During the communal breakfast all the couples were seated and socializing and enjoying the morning. During the meal...

Jarred and Linda, we can't tell you how sorry we are for making you feel uncomfortable or unwelcome at our place. We fear that you may have not gotten the full context of the conversation and thus misinterpreted what was being said. The discussion we shared with the young couple and the other guests was one of mutual respect and... More

Love this place. We stayed in the spacious Turret Suite which is awesome as you can smell the breakfast cooking in the private bathroom. Love the private balcony and the peaceful stay. The nightly appetizers and welcome punch set the mood and are unlike anything available at other locations. The breakfast is known around town for its very high quality... More

I am so glad to have found the HS Clay as the spot to enjoy peace and quiet needed to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We stayed in the Cottage and just loved the privacy and the ambience.
