We stayed in the Napoleon Suite July 2016. This place really saved us as we didn't book a reservation until the day we arrived. After searching desperately for a room we remembered a previous recommendation of this B&B. She was more than accommodating to our same day booking and late arrival and had some great recommendations for late night snacks....

I'm so glad I had a chance to meet you! It was a happy coincidence that our 3rd floor Napoleon room was your favorite shade of blue. The room is ginormous at 600 sq.ft. and does tend to dwarf the queen-sized bed. Our dinner cordials are the perfect way to relax and unwind after a long day, especially while visiting...

My husband and I stayed at Napoleon's Retreat for our 5 year anniversary. We found it online and read the amazing reviews and knew that we just had to stay here.

We booked our stay here because of the excellent ratings and were not disappointed. it is a superb Victorian house within the attractive and safe Lafayette Park area. We stayed in the Burgundy room which is beautifully furnished in antique style and very comfortable. Stacy was most welcoming and provided a delicious breakfast.

We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us, and that you had a chance to explore the Lafayette Square neighborhood. The Burgundy room is one of my favorites, too -- the rich, deep red walls really set off the antique woodwork. Thank you for your gracious compliments, and for giving us the honor of being your...

At the suggestion of our son who lives in the Lafayette Square area, my husband and I decided to stay at a local bed and breakfast on a recent weekend visit.

Stacey is a truly wonderful hostess, with spot- on tips for exploration, and every imaginable treat to make our stay a delight. Our delicious breakfasts kept us walking all day to see the sites of St. Louis, and then explore the local breweries, restaurants and ice cream palace around the corner. Lafayette Park is next door.

On our way from DC to Denver on a road trip, we stopped off in Saint Louis and stayed at Napoleon's Retreat.

Thank you for your kind words about our B&B. Your drive to Denver sounded amazing! It's been a while since we've traveled "out west", and it was great to reminisce about beautiful CO. I wish our B&B hadn't been so packed for Memorial weekend. Each B&B is a bit different. Our location in the Lafayette Square neighborhood, definitely a hidden...

My new Fiancee and I LOVED this place. It was a very good walking distance from a very nice bar and pizza place. The interior was delightful and the owners are wonderful! The puppies were terrific! We both work with animals, so having the dogs there was great! Will stay here again!
