We're in the news!

Earlier today, the local Fox 2 News station broadcast a story called "In Your Neighborhood". The morning news segment provided viewers with a closer look at different businesses in Lafayette Square. Napoleon's Retreat B&B was featured as a warm, welcoming place to stay in St. Louis. Here's a link to the broadcast: Napoleon's Retreat on Fox2 News

Reporters Kevin Steincross and Margie Ellisor were really friendly and asked a lot of great questions about our bed and breakfast. It was rather amusing to admit on camera that we sort of "fell into" innkeeping, rather than pursuing it as part of a planned career path. Then again, our move to St. Louis was also somewhat spontaneous. We visited St. Louis back in 2004, several years before we moved here. By sheer coincidence, we stayed in Lafayette Square. We never dreamed that some day it would be our home!

Stacy mentioned to the reporters that we love living in Lafayette Square. There are so many great shops and restaurants for our guests to visit. Our neighborhood is close enough to downtown to hear the fireworks when the Cardinals score a home run, yet we're often called a "hidden gem". The Fox2 news segment will certainly help spread the word about the many things Lafayette Square has to offer its visitors! Here are a few links to the news segments for the other businesses in Lafayette Square:
