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

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

Napoleon's Retreat is historical, beautiful and so comfortable. The owner is lovely and provides a welcome environment, making guests feel like family. We stayed in the large Napoleon suite which was warm, clean and comfortable plus extremely spacious. The breakfasts were an experience in luxury and deliciousness with unique and really tasty delights. Without question we will stay in Napoleon's... 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

The room was great, clean, spacious, and quite. The owners were sooo sweet and so on top of things, the breakfast was our favorite part. And their city recommendations were perfect--both food and activities. We loved walking around every morning and seeing all the beautiful Victorian homes. You won't regret staying here.

What a great weekend we had exploring St. Louis! It was nice getting to come "home" to Napoleon's Retreat after a full day of site seeing. Stacy had great suggestions for places to see and eat. We liked being able to walk to quite a few things right there in the "Lafayette" neighborhood. The room was ample and clean furnished... More
