The Lewis & Clark Guest House
St. Charles, Missouri, United States 63301
The Lewis & Clark Guest House is a historic cottage that has been thoughtfully remodeled into a luxurious retreat while still keeping the feel of its colonial heritage- perfect for a romantic getaway or small group. This charming home was built in 1793 and once owned by the Commandant of St. Charles, Don Carlos Tayon. He lived here when Merriwether Lewis and William Clark arrived and met with him presumably in this house! The main entrance opens into a gorgeous master bedroom with king, 4 post bed, quality linens, and down comforter. From the bed you can view the large stone and brick hearth with gas flame stove, perfect for snuggling up on a chilly night. There is also two upholstered sitting chairs and a table for relaxing or reading and taking your morning coffee. A flat screen TV, and armoire are also included for your convenience.
A set of lovely double doors leads you into an amazingly luxurious and unique master bathroom. Stone steps lead you up to the oversized raised jetted tub with brick surround. Adjacent to that is the expansive tiled shower complete with two sets of shower systems including multiple rainfall shower heads and body sprayers. From the tub and the shower, you can see another fireplace set into a stone hearth and an additional flat screen tv above it. Also in the suite is a separate room with the toilet, an antique dresser made into the vanity, and large capacity washer/dryer behind two doors.
Off the back of the bedroom is a charming sitting room with a built in seating area with a twin mattress and numerous soft pillows for the ultimate comfort in lounging or extra sleeping space if needed. There is an additional tv in this room as well for viewing from your cozy retreat.

Great Weekend Stay
Very nice newly available guest house! Great for a couple who wants a week or a weekend away. Newly renovated, suited for two. The description describes it perfectly. Great private backyard also. Just off Main Street.
I don’t think I can say enough good things about this property. Not only was the location perfect but the decoration and the cleanliness were superb. It was decorated a bit for Christmas which I really appreciate since I was there visiting my family. I will try to get this property every time I come home to visit it was so amazing and the host was extra amazing and helpful.! The bed was one of the most control that I’ve ever slept in. Definitely get this instead of a hotel it is really is the perfect place to stay.
