My wife and I stayed here for a romantic Valentine's/Anniversary getaway. We were planning to see The Phantom of the Opera, and wanted to find someplace close to The Fox Theater. Checked a few hotels, then decided to try a B & B instead. Very glad we chose the Lehmann House, as Marie was very welcoming and helpful. The breakfasts were excellent, and she made sure to have wood for the fireplace in our room, and even had it set up and ready to light. My only complaint would be that it is advertised everywhere as being up to $199 per night for the President's room, but I ended up paying $209 per night through this site. Not sure if it is because of a fee charged by the site or not, but I still believe that it was worth it for the experience. Mike and Amber Kettelhake
Mike, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and that I helped to make your weekend so special. I'm not sure about the rate disparity other than what you suggested. Thanks for the glowing compliments. Hope to see you again soon!

I was looking for a place to stay that was different than your typical hotel when a group of girls were getting together for a girls weekend. Marie was very accommodating to check in requests, number of girls attending, and gluten free breakfast needs. The bed was extremely comfortable. The house was beautiful, clean, and rich with history. Most importantly, Marie and her husband (forgot his name) made us feel more than welcome. They treated us like family. I didn't want to leave. If I am in the St. Louis area again, this is where I will stay. Oh, the location is also great... very close to downtown!
Thank you for such warm compliments. I'm so glad all of you enjoyed your stay. I look forward to helping you all plan another girls get-away!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for valentines day and it was just what we were looking for. Beautiful antiques and architecture, and Marie and her husband were sweet and accommodating. We stayed in the Maid's Room, very comfortable and charming. Breakfast was delicious, and Marie accommodated my girlfriend's food allergies perfectly. We will DEFINITELY be back! 10/10!! Mike & Dylan
I really enjoyed hosting you. You two were great guests. I'm pleased to be a part of making your Valentine's Day special. I look forward to hosting you again!

We stayed there about 5 years ago and was looking for it to recommend to a friend who is going there this spring with her daughter. I had to write a review, Marie was so wonderful when we stayed there with our two small children (2 & 5 year olds) She made them comfortable and having the park across the street helped get their energy out so we could enjoy the parlor and the piano. If we get back to St. Louis we will stay again and I will send anyone who is going to visit to Lehmann House. I still remember the ceramic lamb plates she served the kids breakfast on. (My picky eaters ate every bite!)

It was great to return to your B&B after so many years. We really enjoyed our stay. Breakfasts were so good and we enjoyed talking to you while we had our 2nd and 3rd cups of coffee. Your recommendation for Zia's was also great! Thanks again for your warm hospitality. Mike and Rose M, Omaha, NE

Wish we could transport your lovely warm and hospitable home with us. I don’t know how you do it all. Our stay at your B&B was better than our cruise!

Cherry Ladder Coffee Cake
Cherry Ladder Coffee Cake is a tender sour cream/butter/flour pastry bursting with juicy cherries (can be made with peaches or apples as well). The pastry is rolled in a 9"x15" rectangle, the sides sliced in 1" "rungs" on each side with the cherries placed down the middle. The "rungs" are folded over the cherries, alternating right and left, to form a ladder across the top. The baked pastry is then drizzled with a almond flavored glaze, sprinkled with chopped walnuts and served warm. Even when serving two, these are always completely devoured at the breakfast table.
