St. Louis get-away weekend

5 on May 29, 2017

Our stay over Memorial Day weekend was wonderful. Chuck and Magretta were great hosts. They made us feel right at home and I can't speak highly enough about the food. Every morning there was something new, different and delicious. The room was very cozy, comfortable and clean. The library was well stocked with both books and DVDs. If we have the chance we will definitely be returning for another get-away weekend.


Overnight

4.4 on May 25, 2017

My wife and I traveled to St Louis for an overnight and stayed in this old house. The homeowners gave us great feedback on how to get around and where to eat that was local. Very comfortable stay.


Very warm and inviting

4.6 on May 18, 2017

Our hosts,and their pups, were very accommodating making sure we felt at home. My husband really enjoyed the welcoming home history tour upon our arrival, and I was impressed by Magretta's antique collections and the extra touches throughout the house, such as Port or Sherry before retiring for the evening. The breakfast and presentation was definitely the highlight and so very impressive!


Charming B&B

5 on April 26, 2017

We stayed at the Forget-Me-Not Bed and Breakfast while on a short getaway for our anniversary. It was definitely a pleasant experience. The house is beautiful. The owners, Chuck and Magretta, were so sweet and gracious. The room was very clean and spacious, with a very comfortable bed. And the breakfast was amazing... fluffy scrambled eggs, perfectly fried bacon, and Finnish pancakes with Bananas Foster topping. We loved our stay and look forward to coming again!


Great breakfast

4.2 on February 23, 2017

The bed was one of the most comfortable we've been in outside our own house, and the breakfast was absolutely delicious with unusual homemade wonders. The cold banana bisque was really tasty even though it sounds awful, and the German-style pancakes were excellent.


Pleasant 2 nights stay

4.6 on January 19, 2017

Was on a short trip to St. Louis and picked this B&B to stay and was not disappointed. The couple who ran the place were so cute and pleasant. I've met some B&B operators who were not... they also have most wonderful dogs, Hayley and Spike, who greets you when you arrive. What a joy it was to be in their company. My wife fell in love with them. My favorite part of stay at this B&B was their little library. And their large selection of teas to enjoy while reading in the library... I hope to revisit soon.

About the innkeepers

Magretta, a southern girl, moved to St. Louis to become the Executive Director of Lutheran Ministries Association. She met Chuck, a mechanical engineer when she lived and CA, and he followed her to St. Louis to get married. We bought this house as our residence, but it was too big for 2 people. A friend suggested we open a bed and breakfast. And here we are! Our major hobby is working on the house and playing cards with friends, but we love board games.
