  • Just like kids at Xmas

    "We arrived on a dark rainy Friday afternoon to attend a family wedding. We traveled to STL from CA,CO and KS. Upon our arrival we found a lovely house where the elves had lit the house to show us the details Innkeeper Karen had prepared for us. It was like Xmas morning. We were always excited to find yet another small detail, notion or treat that Karen had placed in the house to make us comfortable and cared for. Karen is a gifted Innkeeper, hostess and elf. If in STL this area is a joy to walk through, close to Forest Park and major hospitals. Downtown is a short drive making location perfect for all that STL offers. The garden in front of this house is AMAZING. We throughly enjoyed our stay. At Elves Manor, the elves are getting it right."

  • A great cottage for a weekend getaway with the girls

    "This past weekend (6/5 - 6/9), three friends and I rented this cottage for a girl's weekend. I live in St. Louis but they were all from other states (OH, IA, IN). We had a fabulous time! The cottage is just as cute and charming as can be and the owners took obvious care in making sure the place is well stocked and clean for guests. The yard would be terrific for families with small children since it is fenced. The cottage is just one street off of Main Street in St. Charles. We walked there every day to either shop or take advantage of the restaurants in town. We had breakfast two days at the Bike Shop Cafe (love the iced chai lattes and the belgian waffles) and once at Picasso's (the coffee cake was divine). We also had lunch at the Trailhead Brewery (yummy). The cottage is a great central location because it doesn't take long to get anywhere. We went to the City Museum (what a fabulous time! You have to see it to believe it!), the Lafayette Square House Tours, we did a concert in the park, and went to Wentzville to check out the Renaissance Fair. But back to the cottage. What was so nice about the place, is that at night, when we were tired, it was a great place to return "home" to and it did feel like home. We just sat around and had some drinks and played games one night while taking advantage of some of the snacks and sodas that were also stocked. Thanks for the wonderful weekend!"

St. Louis Travel Tips

Visit the Famous Sites near St. Louis Vacation Rentals

St. Louis's most famous landmark is the impressive steel arch that dominates the city’s skyline. The Gateway Arch and Jefferson National Expansion Museum is St. Louis’s top must-see landmark. Measuring a height of 630 feet, it is America’s tallest man-made monument. You can travel to the top of the arch by tram and browse through the interesting exhibits in the museum.

St. Louis is also famous for its beer. Stop in at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery and sample some of the ale. It’s a great way to discover more about the brewing process and get in a pint or two while you are at it. It’s a good idea to visit the brewery later in the afternoon as you may just get stuck there and not get out to see the rest of the city sights.

The legendary Route 66 highway passes through St. Louis. Take a drive and see some of the well known and historic landmarks along the route. Many people like to hire Harley motorcycles or open-top cars so that they can truly enjoy the experience.

There are several top museums worth visiting. The Missouri History Museum has exhibits dating back to the late 1700s, covering the history of the state. The Art Museum has some interesting artworks on display. Information of artists and exhibits can be obtained from the information center. The City Museum is a great place to take the family. Kids of all ages will enjoy the displays and exhibits. The Museum of Transportation shows off historical and vintage steam trains, passenger cars and automobiles. It’s a great place for motoring and engineering enthusiasts to visit.

The Forest Park is made up of 1,300 beautiful acres of parkland with lakes and scenic walkways that are great for exploring. Take a leisurely stroll or pack a picnic basket and relax under the shade of a tree as you watch the kids play on the lawn.

The St. Louis Basilica has the largest mosaic collection in the western hemisphere. These beautiful and ornate works of art are truly unique.
