Took a two night getaway to The Lodge at Grant’s Trail. We arrived on a Wednesday afternoon. We had been informed that no one else would be there. The manager had emailed check in information and once we opened the door the lodge was ours. The cleanliness of the facility was most impressive. No where we looked was dirty or dingy. We enjoyed the taxidermy and the fireplaces. There are fireplaces everywhere! The antler chandelier is amazing! The upper level dedicated to Presidents was very interesting. As a native of Springfield, Illinois, the nod to Lincoln is first class. Our room was waiting with the fireplace on. We stayed in the “Alaska Room”. Love the balcony. Yes, the decor could be considered “dated” but that was fine with us. We are a simple couple who doesn’t require high-end decor or ambiance. We explored all the rooms and they were all so unique and the attention to detail was great. Our breakfast was served two days in a row and it was good. Eggs, bacon, sausage, mixed breads and juice and coffee. The Lodge is so close to all St Louis sites and attractions and there are some great nearby places for food and drink. Will we return to The Lodge? Maybe. This was our first experience with a B&B. Overall, I’m glad we went. Rob and Heather Lind Spaulding, IL

We were married at the Lodge in Dec of 2012 and this was our 5th anniversary. You can not find a nicer place to have a wedding or just a nice get away.

The rooms were original and unigue in decoration. We enjoyed the atmosphere and character of the lodge. The only negative was that the rooms are a bit on the small side.

Beautiful lodge, decorating is wonderful. Rooms are all uniquely decorated and themed. Excellent food and service. Very cozy and romantic. Hand crafted log bed was amazing. My only complaint is that while the bed was one of a kind and beautiful it was also very noisy with any movement which made romantic activity renter challenging while trying to be respectful of other guests. Maybe reinforcing underneath with some slats and feet would help or putting the mattress on a regular frame inside the heavy log frame. But other than that everything was wonderful!

Though the Mississippi Room was on the smallish size it was sufficient. The staff we encountered were all very friendly and helpful. The lodge is quite nice. The common areas and the outdoor space are both inviting. Our breakfast turned out to be perfect for our restrictive low carb, low sugar diet.

Stayed in the Washington room which my wife and I quite liked. Was nice and clean and the breakfast was great. My only complaint was that there were no matches in the room to light the candles by the tub.

We come every year to enjoy the peace and wonderful rooms. The Lincoln Suite was just perfect this time- we have tried several of the rooms over the years. From the wine and cheese to the jacuzzi tub with fire- Romance is always in the air at the Lodge at Grant's Trail.
I want to Thank You for choosing The Lodge at Grant's Trail! We really appreciate your kind words! The Mary Lincoln Suite is my favorite of our suites. We are so glad you stayed with us and appreciate your continued patronage. Happy Anniversary!

The people there are great from check in to check out. They brought us delicious snacks our 1st night, the room was comfy, the breakfast the next morning so delicious. They even fixed breakfast for us early on our last morning. I would highly rcommend this place to everyone.

I was looking for something different to surprise my husband for his 50th birthday. The Washington Suite was perfect! It was spacious and relaxing and private. The manager was quick to respond to my on line booking question about suggestions to make it special and was very accommodating. The breakfast pizza was unique and tasty. We enjoyed a walk along Grant's Trail, but needed more time to explore the lodge itself. We will keep it in mind for future visits.

I cannot begin to describe the excellent accommodations, management, and food we had during our 3 night stay at the lodge. Upon walking in we were greeted by the manager Matthew. The suite was just perfect! A very comfortable king sized bed with soft sheets, the air conditioner was on and a nice cool temp to walk into from the 90 degree weather, and a jacuzzi tub perfect for two! The decor is something very special that we (as avid travelers in our retirement years) have never seen elsewhere. Every morning we had a wonderful breakfast, cooked to order. My husband does not like omelet's, which was the featured item on Saturday, so Matthew offered eggs anyway he wanted. To offer something that was not even on the menu for the day was so nice. We felt very special. The waitress Mary was very delightful and helpful. She made sure our cups of coffee and juice were never less than half full. We have been at several high-dollar hotels and none could compare to the hospitality that we were given this weekend.In the evening we sat outside together sipping on our wine that was left in our room in the evening (compliments of the lodge) enjoying the beautiful back yard. The greatest surprise was our last morning. We informed Matthew that we had a long journey ahead of us and would be leaving well before breakfast and wanted to thank him for his hospitality. He asked what time we would be departing and we told him we would be leaving by 6:30 am. Much to our surprise, when we went down at 6:15 am, he was there and had made us scrambled eggs and bacon, and had coffee ready. We did not expect such great hospitality. We were very thankful to have a full warm breakfast before hitting the road for the long journey. As we left, my husband offered him a tip and he refused to accept it. He genuinely cared that we had a pleasant stay and that we were fed before we left. I cannot tell you how great it is in this time to have such amazing hospitality and warmth.

My husband and I booked a stayed here in St. Louis for my Birthday weekend on our way to Branson. We were more than pleased with the unique decor, it was very clean, warm and inviting. The innkeeper Matthew was very friendly and accommodating, he gave us great recommendations for local restaurants and the breakfast was amazing and I even received a birthday card which was a special touch. We would definitely recommend this B&B and will return in the future.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our Inn! I appreciate your kind words. Thank you for spending your birthday with us. I look forward to your return visit!

This was a great place to stay the night while traveling through St Louis. The place is inviting and comfortable. It is close to the highway so you can hear the highway traffic however this does make it convenient to get to. We would stay here again.

The room's decoration is decent and the outside view is nice, full of greens. The owner provides us a warm welcome when we arrived. Good experience overall to escape from the city.

We come in town for the steelers game and it was really a great place to stay, close to the city and great breakfast setup

My wife and I stayed here on a recent visit for a friend's wedding reception. The rooms were thematically decorated and named accordingly. The weekend breakfast provided was excellent. When we needed service, it was efficient and friendly. As a runner, I greatly appreciated the ideal location next to Grant's trail.
5 on June 04, 2015
I'm an avid runner, and ran Grant's Trail every day when we lived in St Louis, but we never had a reason to stay here. Now that we've moved, this is the perfect spot! 1/10 of a mile from the trail head, great breakfast, adorable, clean rooms with fireplaces, and super friendly staff. Yes, 55 is super close, but it's not intrusive. Even my small town hubby wasn't bothered by it. We'll definitely be back!

Staff is friendly and caring. This is our third visit and we are looking forward to our next visit in September

Our Family had the whole B&B reserved for my brother and his Wife's 50th celebration as well as a few rooms at a local inn. It was a wonderful time and the memories will be talked about for years. The staff responded to our needs and were helpful as we stayed from Friday afternoon until Sunday noon. The celebration dinner was delightful as were the breakfasts and wine and cheese soiree.

We just spent a week vacation in the Smokey Mountains. It was a long day's drive to get here. When we arrived it was 8pm. They had left us a key and info for everything we needed. Room was great (Alaska), and the breakfast & service was better.

Excellent atmosphere, accommodations, & staff.

The level of friendly service here blew me away. But I like big, cushy feather pillows, not hard, cheap foam pillows. So, if that matters to you, bring your own pillow and wallow in the friendly service.

The Lodge is decorated beautifully and is spotlessly clean. Carol was very helpful in making us comfortable. We were treated to a very relaxing stay and would highly recommend the Lodge at Grant's Trail.

The character and uniqueness alone cause me to recommend this log cabin to my numerous kin & frien' in the St. Louis area. Its proximity to the nature, history -- surrounded Grant's Trail make it a must-stay for hikers. Jan, the owner, exudes genuine hospitality.

My parents first booked this room for my wife and I for our honeymoon a year ago and we enjoyed ourselves so much we returned for our first anniversary. This happened to fall on Easter Sunday and the brunch was terrific! VERY clean. Nice deck to hang out on. Large spa tub. I've never spent any time in the other bedrooms, but have seen them and they also appear nice. I highly reccommend this B & B. Very romantic. Beats the hell out of the Holiday Inn. :-)

After a day driving 300 miles, the Lodge was a welcome sight, with a comfortable room and great hospitality. Would highly recommend.
