Excellent B&B with great hosts. Stacy is exuberant, helpful and rightfully proud of what she and her husband have created. We were upgraded to the Charles DeGaulle room because the room we had chosen was having some repair work done. Our room was in the back and could be entered separately through the courtyard. The room was spacious, comfortable and... More

It was our first time visiting St. Louis. We came for the NCAA Wrestling Championship and wanted to find some place that was within walking distance of the Scottrade Center and other attractions. This was the perfect place, we stayed in the Josephine Suite that is like a mini apartment and it was perfect for my husband and myself and... More

Naolean's Retreat is a beautiful B&B in a charming neighborhood. We found it a peaceful oasis with easy access to great restaurants and downtown sights. The innkeeper did not overlook the details--our well-appointed room had everything from bath salts to a dish of candies to fresh-baked cookies awaiting each afternoon. Breakfasts had something to suit every taste: fresh fruit, baked... 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!
