About Anne, Kathy or Harold

SF Shannon is honored to offer unique and lovingly furnished accommodations in the Central West End, Compton Heights, and across the street from magnificent Tower Grove Park. All of us at SF Shannon take great delight in helping you discover the best of St. Louis!

Why Anne, Kathy or Harold chose Tower Grove East

This property was built more than 100 years ago by Anna & Herman Ullrich, who operated a bakery on the first floor and lived upstairs. The building is a classic example of Bavarian Revival architecture. We decided to open the Ullrich Suite to honor the family's enduring contribution to this corner of St. Louis (as well as to provide a great place for travelers to rest after they're done exploring).

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location! Anna's Retreat is located in the heart of metropolitan St. Louis. From here it's easy to get anywhere in the city.

Reviewer Comments:

I wanted to be in the Missouri Botanical Garden vicinity & this was perfect. I was allowed to check in early and even though they forgot to put the key in the lock box, Rachel came over immediately to let me in. Then she carried my back-breaking suitcase up the stairs without a moment's hesitation, told me a list of good restaurants in the area, & made sure all my questions were answered before she left. The Retreat was just the right size for me and could have easily accommodated my husband too if he had been with me: living room with TV & DVD player, small dining table, complete kitchen & appliances/utensils, comfy bed, shower/tub (leave your shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap, & blow dryer at home), & AC unit in living & bedroom, plus a ceiling fan in the bedroom. I considered stopping at a local grocery but it was on a one-way street & as I tried to return to it, I got so interested in looking at the varied & amazing architecture of the surrounding homes, I gave up the shopping idea & returned to Anna's. Once I got back to the Retreat I was glad I hadn't shopped: in the icebox were 6 eggs, oranges/apples, bagels, butter, cream, & beverages! The special treats for me were coffee beans + grinder & an organic chocolate bar which I managed to make last for 5 days:) There is a small cafe next door (that I was unable to make time for) and, even though I was unfamiliar with the area, I felt completely safe. Emails were thorough & Rachel was always just a phone call/text away. I would return in a heartbeat!

When a country girl can be lulled to sleep by crickets, you know you have found a quiet place in the city. The apartment was just the size I needed and centrally located. Very clean and neat with thoughtful decorative touches Thank you Rachel and Anne. Sincerely, Susan

Reviewer Comments:

This space was absolutely perfect. With a historic flair and everything you may need, this apartment was ideal for a visit to St. Louis. It was clean, well kept, and cool even on warm summer days. We were greeted with a couple of local treats upon arrival as well. Located just minutes from downtown, SLU, the arch and the Budweiser brewery, everything is within reach from this starting point. However, it is also tucked into a quiet neighborhood, allowing for some peace at the end of a busy day. If staying close by is the goal, there is a quiet, neighborhood restaurant and bar literally next door. I would absolutely recommend staying here for any reason you may be visiting St. Louis.

Perfect change in plan get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

My husband and and I were going to spend the week on a Florida beach but had to change plans. I’m so glad we did!! This cute apartment on the second floor of a historic home was perfect for our needs. We were within 10 minutes of everything.

The place was comfy, tastefully decorated, wonderfully stocked with many extras and the host was easily accessible whenever we had a question.

We really enjoyed St. Louis and all it has to offer. We will be back again!

This was a lovely home-away-from-home-in-my-former-hometown when my fiance and I came to visit St. Louis! The neighborhood is very quiet with very easy street parking. The apartment is cozy and comfortable, perfect for the two of us. When we come back to St. Louis, we'll be sure to look up Anna's Retreat.
