Fun and laughter fills the inn

We had a group of wonderful guests visit from Kansas City this weekend. Five couples chose Napoleon's Retreat as part of their getaway weekend.

Our location was perfect for their dinner at Element, ( www.elementstl.com) an excellent upscale restaurant just 3 blocks from our bed & breakfast. The group finished their evening with delicious chocolate martinis and decadent desserts at Bailey's Chocolate Bar (www.baileyschocolatebar.com). We're fortunate to have two award-winning restaurants so close to our inn. Our guests enjoyed a beautiful, 2-block walk through historic Lafayette Square to Bailey's -- which means no one had to miss out on enjoying a martini!

Of the five couples who stayed with us, one couple gave us the honor of being their first bed and breakfast experience. Stacy served one of her personal favorite breakfast entrees: blueberry strudel French toast topped with maple rum sauce. We hope the charm of gorgeous Lafayette Square combined with the warm welcome they received at Napoleon's Retreat has convinced them to stay at many more bed and breakfasts during their travels!

Romance - it's not just for Valentine's Day!

Spring is around the corner and love is in the air! Cupid's arrows have found their mark, and couples are searching for romantic getaways. Every year, we're flooded with calls right up until the evening of February 14th from folks desperate to make a last-minute reservation to surprise their loved one. Unfortunately, we have to turn away numerous requests because we are always full on Valentine's Day.

Why not do something different and surprise your sweetie by reserving a stay any day of the year? Napoleon's Retreat Bed & Breakfast is always a romantic place to stay!


Think of how big of a surprise it would have been if you stayed with us on February 6th -- totally unexpected! You would have avoided the overcrowded restaurants, overpriced roses, and the frantic rush to find the perfect romantic gesture for your sweetie.

It's not too late to completely surprise your dearest love with a romantic stay at a cozy bed and breakfast. We'd love to pamper you in our historic, 130-year old mansion filled with antiques, and guest rooms with private baths and Jacuzzis. Why not stay with us for Leap Year? Or cuddle up by the fireplace in our honeymoon suite during one of those last chilly days in March? We can even arrange for an in-room couples massage from the wonderful therapists at MorganFord Spa. We hope to see you soon!
