My wife and I stayed here for two days. It's a great location - close to fabulous restaurants and simply gorgeous. The value was fantastic and we highly recommend the hot breakfast - delicious. We stayed in the Romeo and Juliet Suite and loved it so much. We definitely plan on staying there again in the future. We recommend this... More

Our two-night "Sweetheart Package" deal has been so popular - and I couldn't be more pleased! It is such a great value for a stay in this incomparable mansion. Thanks, Ricardo! Hope to see you again soon! More

The mansion was beautiful and well-dressed in period furniture and decorations. Every part of the public areas and our own room was very clean, including the sinks and toilets. The room itself (Twelfth Night) was comfortable and well-appointed. The mattress was a modern king-size with no foot board; this is important to me being 6'-2". Isobel was friendly and informative...

We've stayed at many B&B's around the country and Shakespeare Chateau is near if not at the top of our list. The house is nothing short of spectacular. It is a mansion in the truest sense of the word. From the moment we walked in the front parlor, the ornate carved cherry woodwork and decorative tile floor left us with... More

I recently stayed at the Shakespeare Chateau with my partner and we couldn't have been more pleased. The hospitality was great. The staff is friendly and professional, the food is delicious, the room was very comfortable, and the mansion itself is a gem. We enjoyed just getting the chance to look at the beautiful restored architecture, the artwork, and various... More

The Shakespeare Chateau is just one part of an amazing revitalization that is occurring here in St. Joseph. Come and experience it for yourself! We're just around the corner from downtown, where you'll enjoy music festivals and "first Saturday" events, and within very short driving distance of an amazing array of museums, shopping destinations, performing arts venues, and visitor attractions....

Because we've stayed at the Shakespeare before (it was an awesome experience), we thought it would be fun to go with several other couples and take over the entire mansion. What an incredible time!!!! We had all four lovely bedrooms... a couple in each room. The innkeeper/owner, Isobel, and her incredible assistant, Christy, went above and beyond the call of... More

What a great idea! Four couples took the four guest rooms, and booked a dinner to kick things off. With all of the rooms reserved for this group, they enjoyed using the parlors after dinner for board and card games, without any worries of disturbing other guests. Take a tip from David - get a group together and experience the... More

I feel like I’m becoming a bed and breakfast inn aficionado. We recently stayed at our third B&B in the past year – the Shakespeare Chateau in St. Joseph, Missouri. As with the others, we had an enjoyable stay. The Shakespeare Chateau Inn and Gardens is located along St. Joe’s famed “Millionaires’ Row,” near downtown. This is the area where... More

The Shakespeare Chateau is a great getaway for a night or a weekend. Since we opened just a year and a half ago, we've hosted more than 1500 overnight guests, and many more for weddings, dinners, luncheons, baby and bridal showers, and receptions. Rooms fill up fast on the weekends - why not try our 2-night "Sweetheart Package" and treat... More

We spent two nights at Isobel's Shakespeare Chateau and had an awesome time. She is a wonderful host and fun to speak with. She really loves her B&B and enjoys the work - and there's lots to do yet - with plans for expanded restoration, gardening and facial uplifts. This beautiful, historic site will thrill you with exquisite architecture, ancient... More

The Shakespeare Chateau is an unequalled B&B experience! The historic Ogden Mansion, situated on Hall Street (the renowned "Millionaires' Row") is a crown jewel of St. Joseph, the Queen of the River Cities. Did you know that for a time during the gilded age, St. Joseph had the highest per capita income of anywhere in the United States? The beautiful... More

This is what you expect in a bed and breakfast. Loads of charm and interesting architecture, fabulous host and superb hostess. The house has a good feeling. If there were 100 bnb's in the area, it would still rein #1.

It was like staying in a piece of art. The owner shared some of the history of the area and the mansion. We enjoyed the amenities. Bed was very comfortable. Quiet surroundings.

Thank you, Barb and Don, for staying with me recently, and for posting your review to TripAdvisor. Don's first comment upon entering the Shakespeare Chateau was, "I didn't know we'd be staying in a work of art!" Such an accurate characterization of this majestic building. The exquisite interior is so original, authentic, and intact, and was so artfully constructed, yet... More
