Great place to stay in downtown St. Louis

5 on June 30, 2014

We had a wonderful two night stay in the Lafayette room on the third floor of the B&B. The room was spacious and comfortable. The home and grounds are beautiful. We enjoyed drinking a glass of wine (bring your own) while sitting on the back patio in the lovely back yard one evening. We also enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and the park across the street. The hosts, Mike & Kathy were great! They were very knowledgeable about local restaurants and places to see while in St. Louis. We plan to stay with them again the next time we visit St. Louis.


Absolutely Wonderful!

5 on June 22, 2014

We were looking for something out of the ordinary for our weekend stay in St. Louis and found a gem in the Park Avenue Mansion Bed & Breakfast! Mike and Kathy went out of their way to give us what we needed - directions, suggestions for dinner, history of the area around Lafayette Park, after dinner liquors, to-die for breakfasts and privacy too! The house is beautiful with stunning woodwork and marble throughout. The garden area features colorful and unique flowers and trees, a koi pond, a gazebo and the sounds of a relaxing babbling brook no matter where we sat. Our large 3rd floor room stayed nice and cool the entire weekend even though it was very hot and humid outside. The area has a lot to offer as well - unique shops, restaurants and pubs featuring locally grown/brewed/infused items. Lafayette Park is right across the street and is perfect for a morning walk. We highly recommend Park Avenue Mansion Bed and Breakfast We'll be back!


My "always visit" place in the Midwest

4.4 on May 18, 2014

Whenever I'm in the USA, I manipulate my Itinerary to ensure I can visit St Louis and enjoy the outstanding welcome from Mike and Kathy. I've been visiting since 2008 and their standard has never slipped. I recommend The Park Avenue Mansion to anyone looking for a wonderfully-located, warm, inviting, place to stay.

The perfect getaway!

We did the murder mystery weekend and had the best time! The owners made us feel right at home. After our weekend, I felt like we were leaving a visit with old friends. The inn, food and area was perfect. Cannot wait to return.

The most beautiful B&B I have ever stayed in along with the most charming, friendly, helpful hosts. I definitely plan to visit again.


Best B&B in St. Louis!

5 on September 30, 2013

We LOVE to visit St. Louis and staying at the Park Avenue Mansion B&B is ALWAYS 1st on our to do list! Michael and Kathy are great hosts and go above and beyond for all their guests. The location, comfort, ambience, service, food, EVERYTHING is top notch! You'd be hard pressed to find ANY place (hotel or restaurant) that can beat Kathy's breakfasts! The courtyard, with its beautiful trees, flowers, fountains and arbors is fantastic... and just wait 'til you meet Daisy (you'll want to take her home with you)! The B&B is in walking distance of several great restaurants, shops and right across the street from a beautiful historic park surrounded by architecture that dates back to the 1800's. If you're looking for a wonderful EXPERIENCE to enhance your stay while you enjoy an amazing city, you love great food, great people and like to treat yourself to something special, do yourself and those traveling with you a favor and stay at the Park Avenue Mansion B&B! Enjoy! Patrons for 9 years running... - Laura and Tony


Hidden Gem!

4.8 on August 27, 2013

We have stayed at the Park Avenue several times while getting our first child settled at St. Louis University. It's been a wonderful experience and great, relaxing get-away. The location is perfect and the Lafayette Park area is quaint and has everything you need. We will definitely return!


Best of the Best

As a former innkeeper who has stayed at many B&Bs throughout the country, the Park Avenue Mansion deserves 5 Stars and more! Elegant yet comfortable, wonderful breakfast, beautiful gardens and gracious, friendly hosts. All set in one of the most charming neighborhoods called Lafayette Square, near everything to do and see in St. Louis. Great restaurants one block away. And clean! Did I mention clean? Spotless! And I am picky about that. Mike and Kathy, along with their newest member of the household, Daisy, have waved their magic wands and created a place and time that one will not soon forget.

About the innkeepers

We love people, entertaining, and pampering our guests! Mike gives wonderful "histories" and stories of the house and Lafayette Square, if you ask him. We enjoy living in a fabulous neighborhood with great restaurants starting within 50 feet, a Victorian walking park across the street, and a short walk to the city's farmer's market. We are very grateful people who want to share our city with you!
