We had a wonderful stay at the end. This is by far Our favorite B&B in Ste Genevieve. Mike & Cathy were so hospitable & made our stay even more enjoyable. We can't wait to go back & make more memories!!!

My husband & I began our love affair with the Southern Hotel in 1996 when we stayed there on our honeymoon in May. Bob & I became friends, not just patrons, of Mike & Barbara. When she passed away suddenly a few years ago in the fall we were stunned at our sense of loss. In May of 2009 we returned & Mike had remarried; her name is Cathy. No one man should ever be so lucky as to be married to two equally as wonderful women. Cathy is a great cook, just as Barbara was. But Cathy has put her own stamp on interpreting hospitality for the Southern. She has added great recipes & caters to the gluten-free crowd. Most importantly perhaps for Bob and I, she is very sensitive to his newly developed needs as a diabetic. We are sure to call ahead & inform Mike and Cathy that we are coming; realize that it is a small town (one of the reasons we love going there), but that means that purchasing choices are severely limited. They go to St. Louis to make sure they have what they need. There was a time when I could not have imagined the Southern Hotel without Mike and Barbara; now I cannot imagine it without Mike and Cathy. What has not changed is the great care given to the upkeep of the building. If you are looking to get away from our high-tech world and slow down to get reacquainted, go to the Southern Hotel. Enjoy the antiques. Listen to the stairs squeak when you walk upstairs, and imagine who has trod upon them over the centuries. Soak leisurely in a clawfoot bathtub, instead of taking a 2-minute shower. Play a game of billiards, and think of the journey the table made to be there for you...Mike can tell you that story, along with many others. Mike and Cathy will make you feel at home, and you will rediscover romance. Be sure to record your impressions in the journals included on the nightstand of every room. We have stayed in several of the rooms...perhaps you will read about our ongoing love story when you write down yours!!

We expected a nice place but the southern hotel exceeded those expectations and the service was outstanding. Being our first visit to st. genevieve, Mo we received a lot of very helpful advice on what to see what to do and where to eat. We will return.

The gracious hospitality of Mike and Cathy made our 30th wedding anniversary weekend very special. We were directed to a great restaurant, entertained with the history of Ste. Genevieve and The Southern Hotel, and treated like family. Breakfast was superb, our room was delightful and so unique. It was definitely a time to remember for a long time. Thanks Mike & Cathy

The innkeepers went out of their way to make my stay there outstanding. I had special requirements being there on a motorcycle trip and they saw to it that they were met. It was great with guest from all over staying at the same time, it was like one big family.

My wife and I had a lot of fun staying at the Southern Hotel. The wine and cheese reception was a great time to meet the other guests. We stayed in the Lullabelle room. The hotel is very quiet at night. Sleeping was great. Breakfast with the other guests was also a lot of fun. we will definitely go back!!
