Napoleon's Retreat Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 26 Saint Louis B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 October 2013

My wife and I stayed at Napoleon's Retreat for two nights and had a lovely time. We stayed in the Charles de Gaul room and thought it very nice indeed. Bed was comfortable (though I would have liked a king-sized as opposed to the queen in the room). Decoration was tasteful and welcoming. The common areas of the house were also delightful. Breakfast in the morning was very enjoyable and filling. The hostess, Stacy, was welcoming, attentive and a genuine pleasure to meet.

We plan to stay again when we return to the Saint Louis area.

Room Tip: No elevator to access upper floors. Charles de Gaul room has separate entry from courtyard though t...

Thanks Stacy -

Your B&B was a wonderful "home" to stay in while we were in St. Louis. You and the "pups" (just adored Peanut & Indiana) made us feel so welcome. Thanks for the great breakfast you served - and for giving us suggestions on Ricardo's and Bailey's Chocolate Bar - extremely tasty eats - and the few blocks walk to and from there from Napoleon's Retreat made the extra calories consumed worth it!!!

The Lafayette Room was spacious and inviting - clean and comfortable! We enjoyed the patio setting as it was perfect for coffee!!!

Wishing you continued success - keep up the great work!

Jim and Robin M.

Stacy's B&B in LaFayette Square provided the perfect location for us, within walking distance of the Metro, the ballpark, downtown St. Louis and many excellent restaurants. We parked our car and didn't use it for three days. Thank you for your fine hospitality and conversations. We appreciated the attention to details and the tasty breakfast. We hope to return in the near future!

Thank you so much for highlighting our location in your review, Jeannette! We are often told "I didn't know this [Lafayette Square] was here!" by our guests. We love that our inn is so close to downtown that we see the fireworks when the Cardinals score a home run. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay & were able to take advantage of our convenient location. We appreciate your kind words and hope to have the opportunity to have you as our guest again soon!

I just got back from my trip to STL and my stay at Napoleon's Retreat. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Saint Louis but Napoleon's Retreat. Stacy is an AMAZING cook, the accommodations go above and beyond a B&B, information about STL available to you at your finger tips, rooms are comfortable and clean, and the list goes on. I am already looking at my calendar for my next trip to Napoleon's Retreat. Thank you Stacy for a wonderful time!

Beautiful home in the historic Lafayette Park. My husband and I stayed here one night. It is close to the Arch and lots of great restaurants. We slept very comfortably, and we were treated to a filling and delicious breakfast before hitting the road. I loved the pups, Peanut and Indiana- they made wonderful greeters! And Sally was very accommodating and sweet.

Spent five days at this b & b in May. Found it to be centrally located to the renovated downtown St. Louis area. Stacy went out of her way to make us happy. We eat a vegetable based diet and she accomodated our needs for every delicious breakfast. The place is quiet, comfortable and worth every penny--which I think when all things are considered is a very good value. Stacy loves what she does and it shows. Refreshing, easy to be around, she made our visit to St. Louis a real treat.

Room Tip: We stayed in the top floor room which was huge. I think the rooms on the second floor are a bit more...

Thank you for your very thoughtful review. I really appreciate all of the helpful feedback you provided from things like breakfast recipes, linens, furnishings, and even floral arrangements during your stay. We continue to hunt for the perfect antiques to fill the inn. Thank you for the compliment on the impressive custom headboards in the two rooms on the second floor!
