The majestic Shakespeare Chateau was built in 1885 by Nathan Ogden when St. Joseph Missouri was known as "The Queen of the River Cities." High atop a bluff looking down across the city toward the Missouri River, 809 Hall Street is one of several mansions in the Hall Street Historic District known locally as "Millionaires' Row." You'll enjoy meeting the friendly innkeeper, Isobel, as she takes you through the palatial interior. You'll marvel at 47 (yes, 47!) Original stained glass windows, carved cherrywood, mahogany, and walnut mantles, and of course, a bust of the Bard himself above the grand fireplace in the front foyer. But most of all, you'll enjoy our comfortable sleeping rooms, each one beautifully appointed with fabulous art and antiques and luxurious linens.

The Shakespeare Chateau was a great experience! The mansion is fascinating, and the street it is located on is so cool to walk up and down and admire all of the other historical homes! Isobel was the perfect hostess, sharing her knowledge and home with us. She made sure we had

So as is my life: wonderful stay, plan on writing review, and then 2 months later making it happen. This should give you some idea that the inn and it's keeper, Isobel have stayed on my mind in a truly good way. We stayed at SC B & B for a one night get away from all of the

The Mansion is spectacular and Isabel McGowan a warm and welcoming host. We were there this March during flood and mud season so the gardens were not yet in view. The walking tour of the neighborhood is very interesting - and gives one hope that St Joe might once again

Thank you for visiting, and for posting a review on TripAdvisor. I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. I hope when you come back for a return visit you'll take advantage of seating options available in the Library or in the Gallery Lounge, where my guests often enjoy relaxing for conversation and a glass of wine.

Few, if any, B & Bs in other cities I've visited rival the Gilded Age opulence of Shakespeare Chateau. However, lest anyone worry about the formality of its richly appointed interior, innkeeper Isobel McGowan is as warm and gracious as they come. My recent stay forged the
