Came with three girlfriends to unwind and relax. The Cardinal guest house exceeded our expectations for comfort. Full kitchen, nice living room with comfy furniture, three queen beds, 2 bathrooms, gas fireplace. Nicely decorated for the holidays.

This was our second trip to Grafton, and Jeni J's is now my favorite place to stay. The house was cozy, warm and inviting. Within walking distance of most of the locations attraction. Thanks for a great weekend, we will be back!!!

We booked the two bedroom cottage for a friends birthday party in early September. The cottage was very clean, had everything we needed for our stay. Beds were also very comfortable. Shops, restaurants all within walking distance. Jeni J's shop is also a wonderful place! We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

We had such a wonderful time in Grafton and Jeni J's is located within walking distance of most everything. We loved sitting on the front porch in the evening and early morning watching everything that was going on. There is no "dining" at Jeni J's, but there are plenty of other restaurants within walking distance.

Have stayed numerous times, and Nancy has always been above and beyond in meeting our needs. Accommodations are wonderful, and for a small, quaint town, there's a abundance of dining experiences with a variety of choices within walking distance. Stayed earlier this month, and back in July!

What a great place to stay! It was the perfect size cottage. Very cozy and comfortable. Nancy and Mike were so friendly it was like we had known them forever. Before we left we made reservations to return in the fall.

My wife and I stayed in the Wharf party suite and were VERY happy with the room. It was absolutely spotless upon arrival and had everything you could need. This was definitely the way to go. For the same price of a moderate hotel room we got 4x the space, a kichenette, front porch to hang out on, and a view of the river. It is within walking distance of a few of Grafton's nice wineries, eateries, and zip line. Guys, if you want to treat your lady well, Jeni J's is a perfect night out. Do it.

This is the second time we rented the two bedroom cottage at Jeni J's. We go with friends to celebrate our husbands' birthdays which are close in date. Mike and Nancy are great hosts - always willing to go above and beyond to help. The rooms are charming, inviting and very clean. Lots to do in the area - eagle watching, wine tasting and more!

We stayed in the 2-bedroom cottage with some friends celebrating a birthday in October. My husband and I stayed in the 1-bedroom cottage in November celebrating his birthday Both times were amazing. The cottages are very warm and inviting, charming and very clean. Mike and Nancy are great people. The gift shop has lots of nice things and the flip-flop wine is really good. We plan on staying in March for our anniversary. Can't wait!!!

We had a wonderful time staying at Jenni J's cottage. It was so nice a cozy and the owners were so friendly. We would love to go back a visit again and will bring friends next time. Thank you for the wonderful vacation.

Over all our stay in Jeni J's Cottages was nice. We stayed in the one-bedroom the first night and it was fine. We stayed in the 3 bedroom cottage the second night and that was very, very nice. The two cottages have a lot of St. Louis Cardinals decor and I would have preferred something more sports neutral as I am not a Cardinals/baseball fan, Nancy and Mike are very nice and very easy to work with. Value-wise, I thought it was a bit pricey, but I do not have anything to compare it to as this was our first time in Grafton. We will be back though as we had a great time!

The cottage was very roomy and comfortable. Met all expectations. Right in the center of the town. There were lots of things to do and we enjoyed every minute! We would definately stay there again, Thanks

This was my 2nd time staying at Jeni J's and I was thrilled that we were able to return. I have now stayed in 2 of the rooms (Wharf Cottage and Cardinal Cottage) and both were outstanding. They are charming, clean, well-kept and up-to-date. Nancy is wonderful and is extremely easy to work with. She offered flexible check-in times and included options of how to spend our time. Location in Grafton is great! Walking distance to 3 or 4 different restaurants/wineries that offer great food and reasonable prices. Night life is clearly around, but you can easily spend a quiet evening in your room. Anyone who wants to stay near St. Louis but have a more private experience, definitely consider Grafton and Jeni J's!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our cottage was very clean and inlcuded all the amenities for a great girls' getaway. We definitely will return in the future.

My wife and I just celebrated our 5th Anniversary here over the weekend. The room was much better than expected based upon the online photos, the location was perfect for accessing the area shops and establishments, and the hosts were second to none! Definitely planning to return in the future.

We booked a stay at Jeni J's over Valentines weekend with a gift certificate we received for Christmas. I spoke with the owner several days ahead of our arrival, and she made a big deal over our picking up the room key before 6:00 p.m. when the gift shop was to close. The owner insisted I call her the day before or the morning before our arrival, to let her know what time we would be arriving to pick up the key. I called her an hour ahead of our arrival, to let her know we were on our way. When we arrived at the gift shop at 3:25 p.m., (check in is 4:00 p.m.) the room was not ready and the owners wanted us to "come back later" to get the key, which I found to be both rude and inconsiderate of our plans. They provide absolutely no type of breakfast, not so much as a bagel, muffin, or piece of toast, so I am not sure why they are advertising on the Bed & Breakfast.Com site. Seems to be misleading the consumer if you ask me. Afterall, there's a kitchen in the room, why not have a basket of muffins or bagels. There wasn't so much as a bottle of water in the refrigerator or snacks of any kind for $160.00 a night! I have stayed at other Bed & Breakfast in both Grafton & Elsiah and I will be returning to those establishments, but never to Jeni J's, which is over priced with poor customer service.
Guests arrived appearing to have been drinking. They were obnoxious and very difficult to deal with. Our gift shop was filled with customers who were embarrassed by their behavior. We went out of the way to accommodate them, but apparently they misunderstood our policies!

In March of this year, we rented all three of the cottages and had a large group of friends gather for a birthday celebration. Easily within walking distance of many wineries, pubs, and eating establishments, the cottages' central location in Grafton made for a great evening. The Cardinal Cottage was large enough to serve as the center of activity for the evening with multiple tables of cards and board games available. We brought our own grill and used the patio for food as well. Mike and Nancy Jo even joined us for food and drinks that evening. What a pleasant place to stay!
