Read all the reviews and was surprised of the quality of room I got for $254.00. It was very old with very few updates. I guess my biggest complaint would be the bath. The tub was very old and scared up. The baths as a whole was very small. This is a building right out of the 40’s and it showed it. The price includes breakfast and I don’t know what I expected but it was pretty sparse. Just a few pastries and some sausage. Left me pretty hungry. If your looking for old world charm and are not concerned about amenities then this is the place for you

We really enjoyed our visit at this Inn. Linda checked us in and we felt welcome and at home right away. She has a wonderful sense of humor and took time to show us what rooms were available to let us pick which worked for us. The room was welcoming and the bed was very comfortable. In between shopping and exploring we spent time on the balcony in front of our room... reading, napping and enjoying the hustle and bustle of action below us. Breakfast!!! Linda put out such a spread for us. It was so charming and absolutely delicious!! We also enjoyed her stories and truly truly wonderful personality. When we return to St. Charles, this will be our go to place.... for the great location, comfortable clean room, enjoyable balcony and Linda and her breakfast!

Such a cute historic inn. We stayed in the king room w/ an extra twin bed upstairs- it was perfect for my daughter's and myself. We had our own parking space right by the front door and enjoyed a home cooked breakfast - what a treat! The location was so close to all of the cute outside restaurants and shops.

Room has vaulted ceiling and wood flooring. (Floor squeaks but it didn't bother me nor did I hear any other guests during my stay. Rooms are far enough apart to provide a natural sound barrier.) We had the room at the very top of the building. In winter, you will get the best views of the Missouri River. There's a small deck where two people can stand and enjoy a cup of coffee. The river would be best viewed after the leaves have fallen from the trees. The upper room is also the warmest room in the place--another good reason to visit in winter although any time would be fun. The location is superb. There are two restaurants on the same block as the inn. Visitors don't have to be worried about parking. You can just leave the car at the inn and walk the entire main street. There's also shortcuts to Frontier Park, the historic railway depot, etc. Be aware that almost 1/2 the shops are closed on Monday. That would be a good day to do the Katy Trail. Again, the inn is within easy walking distance of the Katy Trail. The attic room has a ceiling fan which we ran quite a bit to keep the air flowing. For those who prefer to keep their room cooler--they can use the wooden slots to block the heat from pouring in near the bed. The king-sized bed can fit two comfortably. The inn is non-smoking. I don't think pets are allowed but readers should check with the inn directly as policies change. The bathroom has a heat lamp and exhaust fan. It includes a vanity looking out onto the street with lace curtains. (Shower only.) In addition, there is a TV in the room but we didn't use it except to listen to the weather report in the morning. Free Wifi. Free newspapers in the lobby area for guests. Breakfast is included. The egg souffle was excellent. French toast was featured on another day. It's good, too, but if you are watching your sugar intake, I recommend bringing some of your own snacks. There is a drip coffee maker in the room. Staff makes every effort to accommodate you if you have special requests. Linda and Venetia were both great! Some things I did miss--a Keurig maker for flavored coffee. Even flavored ground coffee would have been nice. The spoons in the room do not measure the coffee accurately so a measuring spoon would have been great. The cord on the coffee maker was too short to reach any of the plugs so I recommend asking for an extension cord. I understand there may be some restrictions because this is an historic property; however, I do hope they get a microwave at least in the main dining area so that guests can heat up a cup of tea or coffee. If you have heavy suitcases, do not book the top room. It's a great room for people who pack light. If you do have heavy items and want the top room, make some arrangements with the staff in advance of your arrival. MISC. Rooms include soap, shampoo, hair dryer, iron, and ironing board. Also cotton balls and Q-tips. My sister and I enjoyed our visit very much. The staff makes you feel like family. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast. It's so much more fun than staying at a chain hotel.

High class Inn, perfect to end a ride on the Katy Trail. My husband and I loved it so much we stayed an extra night! Super comfy bed, amazing breakfast, and great location. Shed to store bikes in, brewery across the street and just off the bike trail. Hosts go out of their way to make sure your stay is perfect.
