After searching for the perfect place to spend Valentine's Day with my wife, I choose Napoleon's Bed and Breakfast based on the reviews that I had read and the location. I was blown away by how incredible the property really is. Stacy has done an incredible job of keeping the home spotless. Everything in the home is beautiful and it... More

This is the best spot to stay in the whole city! Very close to downtown, but in such a quiet neighborhood full of delicious and interesting places. The owners are so attentive and gracious, and it feels like a priviledge to be a guest in their home. Stacy is an incredible cook, and breakfast is an experience unto itself. The... More

We met friends from another state in St. Louis and stayed at Napoleon's Retreat B&B at the recommendation of my nephew. The B&B is a wonderful place to stay, with fabulous restaurants and pubs in very close proximity. Stacy & Brian were gracious hosts and made recommendations for places to eat and met our transportation needs. The breakfasts were delicious... More

After buying tickets to the annual Lafayette Square “Holiday Parlor Tour”, we decided to make a weekend of it and book a room at Napoleon's Retreat B&B. The stay was fantastic! Stacy was gracious to accommodate my gluten intolerance during our stay with peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and bread pudding – both delicious and both gluten-free. Our room was... More

We love hearing that our guests have had a chance to explore our historic neighborhood, Lafayette Square! The weather was perfect for the House Tour this year - a "must see" for anyone interested in the architecture of 100-year-old homes. The summer tour on the 2nd weekend in June is delightful, too! It was our pleasure having you as our... More

This was my first experience ever staying at a bed and breakfast. I absolutely loved every minute of it! The place itself, was beautiful, luxurious and comfortable. The room was spacious and every detail was seen to. Stacy left no detail unnoticed! The food was unbelievably great! I wish I could have breakfast there every day! I can't say enough... More

We enjoyed 4 nights at the Napoleon's Retreat B&B, this place is so clean, friendly, and yummy. Stacy and Brian are great keepers of this historic gem. The area, Lafayette Square, is beautiful, with historic buildings.

We have a tradition of celebrating our anniversary in a Bed & Breakfast. Since we're new to St Louis, we wanted to try something local. Napoleon's Retreat didn't disappoint! We were completely unfamiliar with Lafayette Square, but fell in love with the neighborhood and visited a few local bars / cafes (all recommended by Stacy). We enjoyed our stay in... More

We were in St Louis for the Rock & Roll Half marathon and discovered this B&B by accident. I was a little concerned since I wasn't familiar with the town or area but decided to live dangerously and go with a B&B in a unfamiliar town. The owner Stacey met us at the door and was extremely friendly from the... More

My husband and I stayed in the Josephine Suite over a long weekend while attending a niece's St. Louis wedding. Charming older historic building with beautiful period furnishings and art yet supremely comfortable, fairly priced and decidely unpretentious. Just a short drive to the usual downtown sites (the Arch, Busch Stadium, the Budweiser Clydesdales, zoo and more) but equally pleasant... More
