NUMBER OF ROOMS
After a long, hot day at the Cardinals game (we were there during the extreme heat in early July), it was nice to arrive here to an air conditioned room. They had it turned up high, which is what we like, it was very lovely and cold! We booked the safari room and it was beautiful decorated in theme, every little detail was thought of. Their hours for check-in are very limited, however working with them to check-in later was easy and when we arrived everything was very simple and we had no issues with accessing the Lodge and getting the key to our room. The entire place is very quaint, no detail over looked. It's just like being in a hunting lodge. Breakfast is full, more than just your usual continental, and different every day. Easy to get to, about 10-15 minutes from…
I was looking for a place near my in-laws and found this gem that’s tucked by the highway, but gives you a sense of being in the woods. Our stay was very brief because we had a family emergency that made us leave early but the Mississippi room was pleasant and the breakfast was varied.
The Lodge is a quirky B&B type hotel designed to look like a large log cabin, with themed rooms and a Great Room (complete with with an antler chandelier and a gigantic moose head) that serves as the breakfast room as well as a spot for the many large events that they hold. We stayed in the Alaska Room, with a canopy bed frame made of branches and tree trunks, pelts and snowshoes on the walls, and a balcony with a view of the large lawn in back, where we spotted various critters like a groundhog and rabbits as well as a family of deer. The Lodge is just off a busy freeway but you'd never know it, and adjacent to an entrance to Grant's Trail, a paved walking path that is probably more fun when it's not 95 degrees and 70% humidity (just a typical summer day in St. Louis). …
We booked the Washington room which was nice. The tub was great and the size of the room was perfect. The bed was super comfortable. The only suggestion for the room would be to have a closet to hang your clothes. Also there is no where in the bathroom to hang anything. The only downside to our stay was the event going on downstairs. The center hall is open all the way to the third floor and it was very very loud even in our room. We had to turn up the tv loud just to drown it out. We finally left our room at 10:00 just to escape the noise. We couldn't use the ice, soda, or outside sitting area down stairs because of the event either. The party left around 11 so we were able to get to sleep. The breakfast was great the next day. We would consider staying here again but I will…
Traveling back to CA, stayed here on the way. It’s a great property with easy access off freeway. Our room was clean and we had the entire place to ourselves. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good with plenty to eat. Definitely will stay here again if in the area!!
