We booked the heavenly package which included dinner at the Port resturant at the St James, a night at the Golden Lantern Inn, and a plane ride over the Mississippi. The inn is lovely, the hosts were friendly and helpful.
We were greeted by the host, and Colby a gentle giant of a dog, and fresh chocolate chip cookies. We stayed in the JR Suite; it was spacious, lovely, with a comfortable bed and chairs. We sat down in the chairs and promptly went to sleep in them they were so comfortable.
Dinner at St James was wonderful and we enjoyed a relaxing evening, and got a good nights sleep. Loved having bottle water available in the refrig outside our room. - Nice touch.
We woke up to coffee and tea which was brought to our room at 8 am, and then we went down for breakfast at 9. The food was great and there was more than we really needed.
Would love to return when their gardens are in bloom.
