My wife and I planned a one night stay on our way home to visit some friends, very nice place loved the old inn feel and great food next time we go to the St. Louis area to visit friends we will stay here.

Great historic B & B, hospitality was over the top.

My wife and I stayed here last week to see the Christmas Festival in old St Charles, what a great experience! The original structure was built in 1837 and much of the old charm remained, although they now have running water and electricity!!! Actually, the furnishings were mostly antiques in very good condition and very clean and comfortable. The hosts went out of their way make our stay memorable and fun, we even rode a carriage pulled by a big Belgian named Bucky with bells and a Santa hat on. Breakfast was served family style around a couple of dining tables and we visited with the other guests until almost check-out time. This B & B is right on the old Main Street where all of the activity was going on for the festival. We couldn't have been in a better place.

Over priced!

We have been to several B&B's in MO, but this one was clearly overpriced. The service was fine, and the food was fine, but the room was too small and far few ammenities for $200 a night.

Travelling home to Massachusetts I was delighted to find a vacancy at this historic inn. The location was ideal for siteseeing, and the room was comfortable and clean.Breakfast at the large dining table allowed interaction with other guests, and the buffet prepared by a friendly, and delightfully interesting cook was a culinary treat. This is a must B&B if you're on the Lewis and Clark Trail, and want to experience the flavor of St.Charles and the feel of Huck Fin plying the Missouri River. I enjoyed my stay immensley.
