Our stay at Elves Manor was the most wonderful, cozy place my little family has ever stayed. As a type A personality (I know, I know not always a good thing.. right?) I am a detailed oriented person.

I have stayed at Elves Manor twice, in March 2014 and in 2011. I love the house, the hosts, the food, the location. It was cool in March, and we used the hot-tub and fireplace. Very soothing. Everything works and is well maintained. Karen could not be nicer, her food offerings are wonderful, the house is filled with thriving plants... More

We spent out 34th anniversary here and loved it! The selection of organic snacks and breakfast items was great. Highly recommend the Not-Gooey Butter Cake and Karen's spinach quiche. So quiet and comfortable we hated to leave the house but there is so much to do in the area. The Central West End is convenient to most attractions in St... More

St. Louis was on our "bucket list" but we never realized the pearl of this city is located on the Central West End area. Elves Manor Guest House is a wonderful place of respite from the busy work life while on vacation. Karen, the inn keeper, greets you personally w/a huge smile and reference materials for your stay in this... More

This was a wonderful place for my mom and I to stay while in the city. Located in the Central West End it is convenient to several destinations throughout the city. Karen gives you an warm and inviting welcome. The kitchen is filled with tasty treats. You won't want to miss her Not-So-Gooey-Butter-Cake!! There are several heath conscious food items... More

We'd love to keep it a secret, but this is the best place to stay in the city. Period. We have stayed all over town and nobody has a more wonderful space and location. So well done you'll want to stay an extra day... Or ten.

Words truly cannot describe how unique the experience is to stay at Elves Manor. I have always wanted to stay at a bed and breakfast type of place but my husband has nixed the idea for 28 years!

My husband and I booked a stay at Elves Manor when we were in St. Louis for a concert. We could not have chosen a more perfect place to stay. We were allowed to check in early, Karen (the innkeeper) was so friendly and accommodating! Everyone who visits her leaves gifts for her or the inn. She gives you the... More

From the homemade goodies in the fridge, such as organic homemade yogurt, granola, organic boiled eggs, fresh fruit bowl, freshly baked bread, to the softness of the sheets on the bed, to the fluffy towels in the bathroom, it was truly an enchanting place. The decor is wonderous, unique, and whimsical. We kept finding all kinds of interesting things every... More

I had a great visit planned in late September and had never been to St Louis before. I had heard this was a wonderful B&B but never imagined I would be staying in such a fantastic guest house. Twhile keeping the environment in mind at all times. It seemed to be centrally located to almost anything you would want to... More
