The Shakespeare Chateau Inn elegantly provides those amenities expected of a luxury B&B: comfortable, clean accommodations and ample, delicious, healthful breakfasts. But it also offers so much more! The stunningly beautiful historic house is filled with antiques, art & stories, and guests are welcomed to learn as much or as little as desired. The superb innkeeper is knowledgeable & passionate, not only about her outstanding establishment, but also about the community & city which surround it. Thank you, Isobel!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
