What a lovely historic home! Lafayette Square it’ a beautiful area five minute drive from Downtown

  • 4 of 5

Susan greeted us and gave us a tour of this beautiful historic home. My family of four had plenty of space to spread around. The kitchen was fully appointed and we cooked a couple of meals during our stay. The wood burning fireplace was enjoyable. And when traveling with teens a washer dryer is a must. Thank you Susan

Wonderful Historic Location.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of this historic home and walked to area restaurants, coffee shops and the beautiful park at Layfayette Square. We would have given the home, with all of its historic charm, a 5 star rating, but it needs some minor repairs and deep cleaning. I left a detailed list for the property manager, but never heard from her.

Great location and beautiful, old world charm.

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic for our party of 4. We enjoyed the movie room upstairs several different times during our stay. The location was the best, as we were able to walk to several locations to eat and hang out. A quick jaunt to the highway to go in pretty much any direction. The house itself was a classic. Amazing architecture from before the 1900's with those great high ceilings. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room to spread out. We would stay here again when in the St Louis area.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast! We had 3 couples that stayed at the property and was very spacious. The kitchen was fully stocked, although we didn't really cook anything since there are awesome restaurants close by. Susan the property manager was friendly and helpful at check in. I would recommend this place-very close to Busch Stadium but the property itself is on a very quiet quaint street.

Great location for our STL weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We are return visitors to this lovely home in Lafayette Square! The house is perfect for a group of "almost 60, but really feel 40" girls who all graduated together in the mid 70's. We rented the house for the weekend, took in Sqwires Happy Hour on Friday night (located within walking distance), visited the Soulard Market Saturday morning, and then attended the Cardinal ballgame on Saturday night. What a fun-filled weekend. The highlight of the house is the nice deck off the kitchen, where we spent most of our time. Plenty of room for the 8 of us to gather with a great kitchen area, spacious bedrooms, with 3 bathrooms.

Susan, as always, was a gracious host. She met me on Friday afternoon with a smile and a hug. We are so looking forward to booking this nice historic home again next year!
