Enjoyed being greeted by the dogs when we checked in. Beautiful home with great historic features. Also in a easy to access area. Breakfast was beyond awesome and well presented. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!!

Enchanting Getaway!

5 on February 16, 2015

My husband and I stayed at this charming B & B to celebrate both our 2 year wedding anniversary and Valentine's Day. Those 2 days weren't nearly enough time to have been there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, Magretta and Chuck were wonderful hosts, and so were Spike and Haley. Don't even get me started on the breakfast! Those Finnish pancakes were amazing! This was a small getaway to enjoy each other without the thought of responsibility, and that's exactly how it turned out. 5 stars!

Our anniversay celebration

5 on January 30, 2015

Our recent stay ay Forget-me-not B&B was very enjoyable because of the connection we made with the owners, Margretta and chuck. From our first moment through the door we felt welcome and at home with the welcome smiles and tour of the home. We felt at ease and felt a connection like we had known each other for a long time. The room was exactly as described and pictured on-line and very comfortable. We both thoroughly enjoyed the two dogs who wanted love and affection. The dogs really made you feel at home too. We enjoyed the wonderful breakfast and great conversation that ensued with the owners and the other guests. Thank you again for a wonderful weekend!

We're Definitely Coming Back

We found this BnB online and stayed for our first wedding anniversary in mid-January 2015. The home was built in 1894, and we loved the decor. Magretta is a wonderful host and a skilled cook. The food was delicious and our room was beautiful, The price was reasonable. Next time we come to St. Louis we're staying here again!

Our 3rd stay!

5 on January 05, 2015

This was our 3rd stay at Forget-me-not. We have only had positive experiences and would love to come back again! Chuck and Magretta are friendly hosts, and the breakfasts are absolutely scrumptious. This is the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway.

Phenomenal hospitality and breakfast.

If you are looking to book a St. Louis bed and breakfast, look no further than the Forget-Me-Not. This stunning Queen Anne style house has been tastefully and thoughtfully been brought back to it's original state. Beautiful antiques rest below soft light from stained glass windows, and the pips are always friendly and ready for pats. The rooms are very comfortable and inviting. Magnets and Chuck are so hospitable and lovely, genuine people. We gorged on the selections for breakfast every morning. Ham bowls with eggs? Baked apple? Banana bisque?! As a 12-year veteran of the service industry and former supervisor of the Savoy Hotel, I was incredibly impressed by everything. Thank you so much, you will be seeing us again.

Breakfast is Ready !

I could talk about the cute, cozy room we enjoyed at the Forget-me-not, location, and friendly hosts, but I want to talk BREAKFAST. I’m telling you that if you like a unique, tasty, and pleasant food experience, this is the place. We have now stayed there twice in the last year and each time the breakfasts are a delight. Magretta and Chuck look for recipes, ones that you won’t get at other area B&Bs. Last time we had breakfast served graciously by our hosts in their well-appointed dining room. First morning: banana bisque to start, choice of juices, fresh-brewed coffee, real cream, Finnish pancakes, gingerbread scones, all you can eat and a people bag to take what you can’t eat, but want a little more. The menu changed for the second morning and was just as tasty and unique as the day before. Good food, good conversation with other guests and our hosts, a pat on the head for Spike and Haley and we were on our way to explore St. Louis. If you are going to stay in a motel for a little less, OK, enjoy, but if you want to add something extra to your travel experience, experience breakfast at the Forget-me-not.

Excellent stay and location

5 on November 05, 2014

Magretta and Chuck are excellent hosts. They helped with our yapping dog (it was our dog's first vacation, and we did not know what to expect) and the breakfast was novel, tasty, and interesting. Plenty of amenities make one feel welcome. The location is quite good too: easy driving to the large park, the botanical gardens, and a historical water tower, as well as other locations. Also three blocks from The Shaved Duck (featured on DDD and the Food Network; try the fries). Our room was clean, except for lady bugs that kept coming in through the window, which had pulled away from the caulking and was no longer sealed. You will have that in a historic home, however, so no complaints.

Innkeeper Response
We were happy to have all of you visit. Gaffer's yapping wasn't bad for me since no other guests were here to hear her and I hope it helped her for the rest of her trip. Thanks for letting us know about the window. I checked it today and saw what you meant, and Chuck came home and fixed it before our new guests arrived. Sorry we didn't see it before! We hope you will come visit us again!
