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.

We stayed the weekend at this B&B and of all our travels so far, we agreed that this was the best place we've stayed at. Very knowledgable regarding local shopping, eateries, and things to do and see, easily and happily accommodating of my dietary restrictions, wonderful breakfasts!

Everything was excellent. I loved the large Josephine suite with the separate living and sleeping areas. Breakfast was delicious and filling (quiche, frittata, fruits, pastries, etc). Parking was convenient and available. Lafayette Square was a very pleasant neighborhood with park and restaurants within a short walk. Stacey and the 2 pooches were excellent hosts. It is walkable to Cardinals game... More

We stayed at the Inn for one night; Stacy was beyond accommodating and did a great job making recommendations for our short stay. We walked around the Lafayette Sq neighborhood and had drinks and dinner there - a very cute neighborhood with lots of great options if you'd like to stay local to the hotel. Our room was very clean,... More

We stayed at the Napoleon for a night in April on our first trip to St Louis. It was a delightful experience.

Napoleons Retreat was a true treat. Stacy was wonderfully accommodating with great recommendations. Her breakfast was outstanding and so filling. We stayed in the Lafayette room. The house is truly lovely and spotless. My husband and I love the neighborhood with the park and great restaurants nearby. We will be back.
