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

my husband and I recently stayed here for three nights in the Lafayette Room, which was very spacious and had every amenity for a perfect stay (we are B&B owners ourselves, so we are keenly aware of details). The bed's mattress was great, and ensured a wonderful night's sleep. Located in an historic area of St. Louis, the B&B is... More

We stayed in St. Louis this weekend to explore and see a Cardinals game. I chose this place because of the great location and proximity to everything we wanted to do. The food was so delicious and our room was very clean, tidy, and more spacious than we expected. We appreciated that Stacy took the time to ask what we... More

While driving across the country, our last stop was St. Louis and we definitely wanted to stay at a BnB, so I found Napoleon's Retreat through Tripadvisor. Stacy was very communicative and even called to make sure we were going to arrive earlier than expected because she had to run an errand. Once we arrived we found a parking spot... More

We're very glad to hear that Napoleon's Retreat was a relaxing respite after traveling so many miles. We really appreciate your kind words about our inn & Stacy's breakfasts. St. Louis is such a fun city, and there's too much to take in during one day! We hope you're able to visit again soon. Best of luck in Cincinnati! More

This was my husband's and I's first B&B experience (in our early 20's). We travel frequently and generally stay in hotels. We were more than pleased with this stay! Stacy (owner) is so sweet and accommodating...not to mention a fantastic cook! Our first morning we had an appetizer of mini blueberry muffins, followed by caramel apple french toast. The second...

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
