A St. Louis Gem

5 on July 21, 2014

I recently stayed at Forget-me-not B and B for the third time. It was a delightful experience. I stayed in the Bissell Tower Room, which is roomy, spotless and well equipped. The bed is very comfortable, and there are a couple of chairs in a sitting area. It is, however, on the third floor up a narrow set of stairs. Guests who have difficulty with stairs might prefer a room on a lower floor. Magretta and Chuck are considerate hosts and wonderful cooks. The breakfasts were delicious feasts with different selections each morning-- stuffed French toast, eggs benedict, pancakes, omelet. Magretta and Chuck also provide a well-stocked library/snack room for guests. In it are lots of books and videos about St. Louis to help you plan your visit. I look forward to my next visit to Forget-me-not. I wholeheartedly recommend it to travelers to St. Louis.

A Short Stay

We were exploring what we could in St. Louis, Mo in 2 nights, 1 day. We met nice people and the owners recommended good things for us to do. We had a great time, the breakfasts were delicious. The owners were great.

We were referred to this B&B because of it's close proximity to family. Chuck and Magretta were friendly and informative. We are looking forward to our next visit and stay

Great stay near botanical gardens

Warm and inviting home. Owners accommodating and hospitable. Close to botanical gardens and easy access to freeways. Special note: we had an early flight and were going to miss breakfast. Magretta bought us muffins, yogurt, fruits and juice for us to take and had coffee to go even at 0430! Chuck was up to see us out. Also the ebelskivers on the first day were outstanding! A great place to stay while visiting St. Louis.

Awesome place!

As you can see from the pictures, the house is beautiful but what the pictures do not capture is the soul of the house and that is it's innkeepers. From the moment we arrived, Magretta and Chuck were simply outstanding as hosts. Our room was quite comfortable and provided a great place to recharge our batteries following a day of exploring St. Louis. The breakfasts were beyond delicious and Margetta made a point to help us celebrate my wife's birthday the last day we were there by placing a candle in a Ebelskiver she had prepared that morning and singing the birthday song as she brought them out. I highly recommend this place!

Great location in St. Louis

We enjoyed our stay with Magretta and Chuck in St. Louis. This B&B is in a convenient location to get around town - we were out in the western suburbs, then down at the Arch, and found a lot to see & do nearby as well. Chuck & Magretta gave us some good tips on things to see and do, as did some of the other guests. Our room was cozy & clean (Compton Hill Tower), breakfasts were delicious & more than ample, and there was a nicely stocked snack & drink area in the library which was very handy. It was a very relaxing and friendly atmosphere, and we enjoyed our time there.

Great weekend trip to St Louis

Gretta and Chuck were excellent hosts for our weekend visit to St Louis. Wonderful breakfasts and good recommendations on where to eat locally for dinner.

Great place, outstanding service and breakfasts

We enjoyed our 4 night stay here very much. The hosts were just right, not too intrusive, but available and willing to help at any time. Breakfasts were beyond wonderful, with different selections each morning we were there. The house is lovely and old, with original woodwork and stained glass and tall ceilings, and in a good neighborhood, walking distance to good restaurants and parks. We were in the Grand room on the second floor, and it was very comfortable. We slept great with a choice of pillow types and a great mattress. There was no closet space to unpack your clothes into, but that was a small issue. One thing to mention about this room is that it only has a small shower, and it's difficult to shower without getting your hair wet. One of the 3rd floor rooms has a lovely big bathroom with a big jacuzzi tub if you prefer that. The central air was down one day, and they graciously let us use the third floor room, which had an in-window air conditioner. That room was very nice as well. The AC was up and working again the next day. There is a very well appointed "library" with books to borrow and DVDs to play in your room. Also complimentary snacks and cold water in the fridge. the TV in the room was a bit small, and hard to watch lying in bed, but it was not a big deal for us. The hosts do have two well behaved dogs, in case you have allergies. I would not hesitate to book a room here again.

About the innkeepers

Our major hobby these days is working on our home and yard. We love to play cards, and Chuck enjoys oil painting portraits. We also enjoy the wonderful restaurants in St. Louis and sampling the different types of theater in town.
