I planned a stay a stay for my anniversary. Stacy was very communicative and helped make the experience fantastic. Breakfasts were creative and satisfying (albeit later than my normal breakfast, it was more like brunch). Stacy is a good cook. The wife came down with the flu before the trip, so we were able to fully utilize the room (Charles... More

We recently spent a long weekend at Napoleon's Retreat and thoroughly enjoyed everything about our stay. First and foremost, Stacy could not have been a more friendly, helpful, kind, or cheerful hostess. Her hard work really enhances the Napoleon's Retreat experience. She and Brian clearly care deeply about your comfort and enjoyment of their B&B and it shows. Second, the... More

Our room was wonderful (we had the Josephine suite for 2 nights). Very comfortable and private. The breakfasts at Napoleon's Retreat were beyond amazing. This was our last B&B stop, after a 2 week trip and staying at several others. All were wonderful, but have to say this one had the best breakfast by far (and the owner even left... More

My mother and I stayed at Napolean's Retreat for one night as part of a mini-break/long-weekend road trip we were doing just for fun. Our first stay was in St. Louis, and from there we traveled to Hannibal, MO, and then to the Amana colonies. Let's just say that the other inns at which we stayed on our trip did... More

Stacy and Brian were excellent hosts. We enjoyed personalized attention, delicious breakfasts, and elegant rooms. Highly recommend this bed and breakfast! Within walking distance to a grocery store, local brewery, coffee shop, restaurants, and dessert bar. Cannot say enough about Stacy's recommendations on where to find the best food and local entertainment! She was so accommodating and always eager to... More

My wife and I had such a great time celebrating our anniversary in STL over a long weekend in mid July. Stacy helped to make it a special 3 night stay with ample advise on where we could go and what we could see. Her breakfasts are wonderful and the inn is just beautiful. Lafayette Square is a wonderfully peaceful... More

Stacy makes the bed and breakfast experience very special. The quality of the breakfast is totally 5 star both in the level of gourmet cooking and in the presentation. She also takes the time to let you know what is available in St Louis according to your interests. The room was very clean and the interior decorating was suburb throughout.

I don't like to write negative reviews. Therefore, I will start with the pros: 1. Lovely period home; nicely decorated and well cared for 2. Food is good 3. Neighborhood is fantastic; we really love it! 4. Room was spacious with a very well functioning, smaller-sized bath Now, the cons: 1. Our room, Lafayette, was on the 2nd floor of... More

Shayne, thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay. We're very sorry that your time with us did not meet your expectations. The room that you stayed in, the Lafayette, has a new mattress that we purchased last year. We've received a lot of positive feedback about it, but unfortunately it did not meet your needs.... More

Delicious food, perfect location, great hosts, and a lovely property all make this a fantastic b&b! Stacy is an excellent host (and cook) the bed was so comfortable and all of the sites of the city are nearby. Although one could easily never leave the property, much less the lovely little neighborhood. I can't wait to return.
