St. Louis bed and breakfast description

Elves Manor Guest House is an entire house all your own in St. Louis' most urbane and cosmopolitan neighborhood, the Central West End. Rates are based on how many beds are in use (as low as $160/night on weeknights with one bedroom in use, and as high as $345/night with all three queen-sized beds in use). You never share the house with strangers; whomever reserves the house receives the whole house.

Elves Manor consists of two stories and approximately 1,200 square feet of living space. The house sleeps up to six, with two bedrooms, two baths, and a second-floor sitting room with by far the expensive item in the house: A truly comfortable queen sleeper sofa bed. The house is reserved for only one guest, or set of guests, at a time. For nightly guests, an abundant vegetarian breakfast available to serve when you like is included in the rate. Always included for all guests is the best fresh locally roasted coffee (if desired), a wide selection of teas, your choice of organic 'Not-Gooey Butter Cake' or organic brownies, and a rotating selection of welcome treats. Elves Manor has a gas fireplace, washer/dryer, a computer with complete Internet access as well as WIFI, copier/fax/printer, hot tub and secure two-car garage.

Elves Manor is in a location that makes it easy to park your car and walk, bike, or take public transit to all of the best attractions in St. Louis. Book online via the Elves Manor website (link below).

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: My name is Karen Karabell. I'm a St. Louis native who lives with my family in a 105-year-old house in front of the carriage house. When I'm not busy with innkeeping, I work in my family's property management business. In my spare time, I'm working in the garden, which I want to be full of flowers and vegetables. I'm an active and enthusiastic advocate for bicycle transportation--and St. Louis is a great city in which to ride!

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Louis:
                  Carriage houses are a St. Louis tradition in the Central West End, our wonderful walking neighborhood. We built our carriage house for my mother, who lived there from April 2002 until August 2006.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                  This may be one of the only vacation properties where you can park your car and forget about it! There is so much to do within easy walking or biking distance. Nearby are dozens of restaurants, two first-run movie theaters, coffee houses, and all kinds of shopping. A short walk east is the main campus of St. Louis University. About one mile west is the Washington University Medical Center, and our city's crown jewel, Forest Park. Forest Park is home to the world-renowned St. Louis Zoo, St. Louis Art Museum, Missouri Historical Society and St. Louis Science Center. The park's 1,293 acres also contain one of the area's finest golf courses, Steinberg Ice Rink, and a boathouse with its own restaurant.
