Phenomenal hospitality and breakfast.

5 on November 25, 2014

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!


Delightful B&B!

My husband & I spent out 2nd anniversary at the Forget Me Not. We couldn't have enjoyed it more. The room was spacious & comfortable & the house itself is gorgeous. Magretta & Chuck couldn't have made us feel more welcome. AND we loved the company of Spike & Haley! I honestly can't remember a better breakfast. That Finnish pancake was worth the cost of the room alone!


Changed my mind

4.4 on October 09, 2014

I am not a fan of B & B's. Don't care to stay in someone else's house plus we've had a couple of not so great experiences. My wife is the opposite and likes them. So, I did some research and booked this one as a surprise to my wife for a 3 day anniversary stay. I must admit, I got the surprise. I REALLY enjoyed our stay. My wife who is very picky fell in love with this place. Magretta and Chuck were great and I almost felt like they became friends. Well, they did. We were in and out a lot and felt very comfortable doing so. A lot of folks have talked about the breakfasts. They are correct. They're great. 3 days, 3 different breakfast, 3 different sets of china. very unique. Ate a few things I've never heard of and enjoyed them all. Banana Bisque? wow! The rooms were nice, clean and plenty big. Slanted ceiling was a head banger a couple of times but I picked that room and liked it. Stairs to the 3rd floor were steep and narrow. (they are open so no closterphobia) Really gave it great character. I actually liked the stairs. Did not bother me at all. The neighborhood seemed very safe and it was convenient to get to different parts of town. This is the first B & B that I would tell my friends, "If you're in St. Louis, you should stay here". They changed my mind and we will stay here again. A lot of St. Louis we didn't get to explore. My wife can't wait to go back.


St. Louis Oasis

I stayed here for five nights, and found it just terrific. The proprietors are very polite and respectful (they'll leave you alone if you just want to read while eating), and the breakfasts are truly wonderful: something creative and different every morning.


You won't be disappointed

I didn't know what to expect and was happily surprised by my stay at Forget-me-not Bed and Breakfast. The bed in my room was wonderful. The breakfasts were spectacular. For me, the location was perfect. I can recommend without reservations.


I can't wait to return!!

5 on September 20, 2014

We accidentally found this B&B when we got last minute tickets to a concert in St. Louis. We checked Bedandbreakfast.com since we had some gift cards and found the Forget Me Not. When we arrived, we were greeted by two precious dogs. Magretta gave us a quick history of the house and a tour. She then showed us to our room. That night, a cold snap came through; we warmed our bums near the electric fire. It was fabulous. Breakfast -- here, adjectives fail me. Amazing and delicious do not do this place service. Plus, breakfast can be at a time that you like. The last B&B we went to had breakfast at 7 AM - 8 AM; no other options. Magretta and Chuck let you pick a time so that you can relax and enjoy your stay. I am actively looking for free weekends and events in St. Louis to justify another trip.

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad you found us. The pups (and we) are ready for your return anytime.


Breakfast Perfection!!!

5 on September 20, 2014

We stayed there over Labor Day weekend for two nights, and after our first morning breakfast we couldn't wait to experience the next morning's deliciousness. We've stayed at countless B&Bs across the U.S. and Europe. NO breakfast has, nor I think could, top what Magretta and Chuck prepare. We lived for many years around the corner from the Forget-me-not, so we can attest to this most wonderful and convenient neighborhood. Whether you want quick and easy access to all the interstates, universities, downtown, or want to walk to endless yummy restaurants and bars, there really is no other place to stay. We will be back, no doubt!


Wonderful stay!

My wife and I spent two nights at the Forget-me-not Bed and Breakfast. The rooms are clean, the house is quite, the host is friendly, and the breakfast is amazing! Will definitely come again.
