Enjoyed my stay, was a much needed relaxing time. The spa is great, and the rooms was nice. I enjoyed the evening and day very much. The pool is also great fun, and the bartender in the restaurant is very knowledgable and friendly. I really enjoyed my stay.

My husband and I love to come to The Elms for our little getaways. It is close to home for us, but gives us time away that is very relaxing. And The Spa is fabulous! This was our 3rd stay. We have received couples massages every time and they are amazing. The staff is very friendly. I highly recommend if... More

A friend told me about this place and I took my wife for our 5th anniversary. It was a flight across the country from the western US and a rental car drive into the hills of Missouri, an area I'd not visited for at least 40 years. I didn't know this old town or historic resort even existed. Besides being... More

My husband and I love The Elms Resort and Spa for a quick little get-away. It is located in a quaint little town on a beautiful piece of property.

This hotel is stunning. It is a luxury hotel in a haunted yet elegant setting. The grounds are breathtaking and the decor is most beautiful. The free haunted tour is very educational and yes there is a presence living there. The restaurant is beautiful and on multiple levels but very pricey. The food was okay but I'm not a foodie...

A great place to bring in the New Year. We always enjoy our stay at this Grand Old Hotel. I don't think there is another Hotel quite like it. Some say its haunted. If it is the spirits are friendly. I am not a five course meal kind of guy. I would stick with the menu.

My wife took me here for a romantic holiday get way. I have traveled to many of Missouri's so called resort which are nothing more than run down places long past their hay day, so my expectations were not high. I was pleasently surprised by The Elms! The old bravarian style was attractive from the outside. The inside was bright,... More

We love going to the Elms on our anniversary and have almost every year for the last 10 years. We love the spa, Grotto and indoor pool. It is so relaxing to sit by the fire in the lobby or enjoy the outdoor hot tub. The restaurant food is delicious.
