The Shakespeare Chateau Inn Bed and Breakfast is a stunning example of the gilded era of Victorian architecture and artistry. It is rear to see such an intact mansion.
The owner is lovingly restoring the home to its original opulence. The home is paired well with its gracious host. The rooms are comfortable and the home, though regal, still feels comfortable.
The breakfast are of the finest quality made with the freshest quality ingredients and server hot and on time.
If your so lucky, I would highly recommend dinning on the front porch overlooking the finest homes of the 1800's "prince's of merchant row."
The home and it's host provide a fabulous and welcome experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The majestic Shakespeare Chateau was built in 1885 by Nathan Ogden when St. Joseph Missouri was known as "The Queen of the River Cities." High atop a bluff looking down across the city toward the Missouri River, 809 Hall Street is one of several mansions in the Hall Street Historic District known locally as "Millionaires' Row." You'll enjoy meeting the friendly innkeeper, Isobel, as she takes you through the palatial interior. You'll marvel at 47 (yes, 47!) Original stained glass windows, carved cherrywood, mahogany, and walnut mantles, and of course, a bust of the Bard himself above the grand fireplace in the front foyer. But most of all, you'll enjoy our comfortable sleeping rooms, each one beautifully appointed with fabulous art and antiques and luxurious linens. ... more less
