Napoleon's Retreat is one of the best Bed and Breakfast Inns I have ever stayed in (and I travel a LOT!) - the owners are lovely, the B+B is beautifully appointed and the hosts are very welcoming!

We loved our visit to this adorable B & B. The owner Stacie was gracious, bubbly, over the top helpful with directions and suggestions. We stayed in the carriage house, although modern very cozy, private and a wonderful place to spend our anniversary. Stacie made scrumptious breakfasts that started our day out with sunshine in our hearts. Thank you Stacie.

Thank you for your kind words about our B&B. It was such a pleasure having you as our guests! We strive to provide our guests with a relaxing getaway. The complete renovation of our carriage house this past winter was a labor of love. The soaring 2-story ceiling and loft bedroom lend themselves to more of a "French cottage" decor,...

We arrived at Napoleon’s Retreat on Thursday afternoon for a 5-night stay and were greeted with a glass of wine by Stacy, the most spunky and vivacious hostess we’ve ever had. Not only is she a ball of energy, she is a fount of knowledge. She knows St. Louis. If we had questions, she had answers. Napoleon’s Retreat is a...

We had a great stay here. This was the largest room we've ever had! The bed slept great, and I have back issues. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic for breakfast! They made helpful suggestions for local places to visit during the evening, and those places were great too.
