We spent a weekend at Casa Magnolia in April. We found it on the internet, seeking a bed-and-breakfast place close to the home of our son. We loved the house, the eclectic decor mixing St. Louis '03 World's Fair and Spanish cloister, our room, bed, and bath, the home-made breakfasts in a wonderful dining room. Above all, we enjoyed our wonderful hosts, Jordi and Lillibet. If you spend time in their house, they want to spend time with you, and we assure you it will be time rewardingly spent.
Casa Magnolia faces the beautiful Tower Grove Park, and is just around the corner from the Missouri Botanical Garden. Street parking is plentiful. In warm weather, the back yard beckons with barbecue pit and pool. The Grand Street business district and St. Louis University are nearby, Wash U is an easy drive or cabfare away.
We will certainly return to Casa Magnolia, and will recommend it to all our friends traveling to St. Louis.
