Colonial inn located on one acre with beautiful established trees in historic Kirkwood Missouri in St. Louis county. This elegant inn is comfortable and luxurious, decorated in late 1800s Eastlake Victorian furniture with all the modern amenities. We have a luxury jacuzzi, gourmet breakfasts, perennial gardens and patios. Endless activities in small town Kirkwood, walk to shops and restaurants, beautiful historic town with well kept centennial homes. 20 minutes to all major St. Louis attractions, but why would you ever want to leave Kirkwood. There's so much to do!!

Our host Lori and her four golden retrievers are so welcoming. It's a beautiful home and yard. Great breakfasts and location. Our third visit this year. Will be back. Big, tasty peaches.

Loved the Magnolia room. Well worth the price and the breakfast was very pleasing to the tummy!

My boyfriend surprised me with a night's stay in St. Louis at the East Lake Inn. We checked in and left immediately to go to the zoo, dinner, etc. I thought the house and our room was very cute and quaint. Although, we didn't spend much time there. The yard was gorgeous, lots of mature trees and plants. I wish there had been a TV in our room, because when we got home we weren't exactly ready for sleep, and being able to watch a movie in the comfort of our bed (it was VERY comfortable) would have been nice. I don't really like the idea of having to go downstairs to the TV room, exspecially because it was so late. Breakfast was homemade and Lori's peaches are AWESOME. I took one bite and knew they were homegrown. She is very friendly and we talked all throughout breakfast. I would def. stay there again, but next time I think we'll try to book The Magnolia Room, since it has a big bathtub my boyfriend would be able to fit in!
