Property description

L'auberge ('the inn') St. Charles, circa 1868 Second Empire French home contributing to the National Register Historic Frenchtown District. Recently underwent a complete restoration saving original doors, wavy glass transom windows and beautiful woodwork while adding a full gourmet kitchen, beautiful bathrooms and high end furnishings. You get the best of both worlds; the quaintness of a bed and breakfast with the comfort and privacy of a fully furnished home. Located in the quiet, Frenchtown District of old town St. Charles, yet still within walking distance of all the shops, restaurants, historic sites and festivities of Main Street, Steel Shop Indoor Tennis Club, Missouri Riverfront and Katy Trail and just 8 miles to St. Louis Lambert Airport and only twenty minutes to St. Louis. Within a scenic 40 min. drive to many of Missouri's award winning wineries. Come see why picturesque St. Charles is nicknamed 'the Williamsburg of the Midwest'

This home includes secure off street parking, outdoor gas grill and comfortably furnished covered back porch area. Inside, the main floor has a large living room with large flatscreen TV, game table and desk: full bathroom with tub/shower; large dining room that seats six; and the kitchen has cherry cabinets, stone countertops, gas range with warming drawer, dishwasher, Keurig coffeemaker, micro, full sized ref/fzr, toaster, mixer, blender and more. Plus, full sized laundry equipment is tucked in a closet.
Upstairs are three bedrooms; The king bed room has a hand painted Missouri River scene headboard, reading area and flat-screen TV with DVD player. The queen bed room also has a reading dormer and TV with DVD player. The equally beautiful, albeit smaller, full bed room has an antique brass bed. All have ultra comfortable cool gel foam mattresses, luxury linens and hardwood floors with access to the large bath with antique claw-foot soaking tub. We also provide luxury bath salts and soaps from Herbaria.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Interior designer and sales manager during the week and historic property restorers on the weekends, the guest house is our sixth project in St. Charles, this is our only guest house in St. Charles. We do, however have another guest property in Panama City Beach, Florida (see #125313). We live one block away, so we're usually 'on site' managers to assure a wonderful stay.

Why the Owner Chose St. Louis:
We bought this property in our continued effort to restore and improve our historic neighborhood. It took over a year to complete the rehab and all of the approvals that St. Charles required to open the first guest house in historic Frenchtown.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We had long admired the beautiful Mansard roof windows, pretty front porch woodwork and large lawn of this house in our neighborhood. When it came up for sale, we immediately purchased it thinking we would move into it ourselves and only after it was mostly redone did we decide to turn it into a vacation house. So, it has high end finishes and accents that are seldom seen in guest houses. The rooms are large with tall ceilings with cherry hardwood flooring throughout and all of its original ornate woodwork. The covered back porch is a favorite spot to relax and we know you'll love it as much as we do!
