Our group had booked only one night, but we all wished we had planned a longer stay. The staff was very helpful and wonderful to us. When we come back to town, we will be sure to make plans here for another stay.

great experience.

He was very polite but informative! The house is gorgeous, Olin has done a wonderful job keeping the original design in mind.I will definitely be returning! And the French toast was absolutely delicious!!!

Took my 80 year old mother to St Joseph, MO to see a concert and needed a place for one night. Always wanted to do the B & B thing. It was wonderful! The place is clean and furnished with really neat antiques. Breakfast was Dee-licious! Olin is a great host. Can't wait to go back with some friends, stay a couple days and see more of historic St. Joe.

A Delightful Experience

The Whiskey Mansion is a beautifully restored and furnished Italianate on a quiet tree-lined street. Nothing about it felt cheap, yet the room rate was very reasonable. The service was excellent and Olin was attentive to my dietary restrictions of gluten-free. The breakfast was amazing. Felt very pampered.

Great Place to Stay. Loved the Mansion,

Wonder stay at a wonderful gem. Mansion has been lovingly restored. Food is unbelievable. If you are looking for that something special place, look no further. Lots to do. Olin has great suggestions on what to do and where to eat. Two of his suggestions that were fantastic were the Patee Musuem and Justus Drug Store Restaurant. Just completely over the top.

My wife and I stayed in the Water Spa Room for our second visit to Whiskey Mansion. I proposed to her five years ago during our first visit, so I surprised her with a trip back on the date of the fifth anniversary. The room was very clean and the breakfast was delicious. Olin has done a lot of work to restore the house and it looks amazing.
