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.

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!

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...
