Tara Point Inn, opened in 1991, situated on a high bluff offering perhaps the best view in the Midwest from the guest rooms and 200-foot deck. The Inn includes a spacious Game Room with pool table, shuffleboard as well as a BYOB. Choose from the Delta Queen Suite or one of the two Riverside Rooms in the Inn or one of 3 cottages nestled back a bit further from the Inn hosting 8 suites. Just 45 minutes from the St. Louis Gateway Arch, quaint Grafton is called 'A Real American River Town' and lives up to its name.

Wonderful Weekend (& Weekday) Getaway!

5 on March 16, 2014

We (six lifelong girlfriends) escaped to Tara Point to celebrate one of our birthdays. From our first breathtaking glimpse of the beautiful view as we arrived at the top of the hill - we enjoyed every moment of our stay! We were welcomed and given a personal tour of the lodge. Then explored our adjoining cottages - complete with electric fireplaces, full size fridges, spacious pleasantly decorated suites with large comfy beds, cozy window seats, with books to read, en suites with both a shower and jacuzzi! Our serene getaway was the scene where we reminisced about fond memories of our childhoods. Then shared a relaxing evening, restful overnight, and breakfast - complete w/ juice, fruit, coffee & more! We created some wonderful memories & will all look forward to visiting again In the future! Strongly recommend visiting this amazing retreat on the river!

sets the bar high for other bed and breakfasts!

We stayed at Tara Point in November and while the trees had already turned, the view from out cottage was spectacular. The two room suite was huge and the jacuzzi was enormous. It was very clean and the real wood fireplace added to the country feel and the romantic atmosphere. While it was a bit chilly outside, the rocking chairs on the front deck were nice to sit and enjoy the night air and sounds. It really set the bar high for other bed and breakfasts since this was our first visit to a bed and breakfast. We have since tried to find a comparable b&b and have had difficulty finding one with all the great amenities that Tara Point Cottages have. While the breakfast was continental and in our fridge, we didn't rate it as high as we would have if it would've contained some more adventurous food choices. However, since we had breakfast at our disposal at any time, we were able to sleep in and didn't have to worry about missing breakfast. Overall, it was awesome and one of the most romantic nights of our marriage.

quiet and romantic

First time at a B&B

We loved staying at Tara Point. This was our first experience staying at a B&B. We were delighted. Tara Point main house is clean, comfortable, and the view is spectacular. Marg was very friendly and made sure our needs were met. We hope to stay there again!
