This place is amazing! Building is old but kept up so well! It's warm
And cozy. Located in great area. We were 5 And there were 4 beds and a couch. Every detail in decor is with LOVE. Street parking galore, stocked
Kitchen with coffee and breakfast basics. Diane greeted us with a smile and felt comforting to see her.
Our host was fantastic and despite having a busy weekend herself managed to make us feel welcome and have a wonderful place ready for us when we arrived.
There was ample space for our relatively large party and the feel of the building was delightful. Additionally it was thankfully close to anywhere we wanted to get it.
All-in-all, a great experience!
Thanks Adam, so glad that you had a great experience. Sorry about the heat, I forewarned Kelly...sorry, but you could have maybe opened the door to the balcony to get some relief. Thanks again, and sorry I didn't have time to get over and watch, I would have totally enjoyed that! Next time..:)
Had a great experience staying at the Dutchtown Gem! It was very cozy and it felt like I was at home even though I was traveling. Diane provided basic breakfast food so we could get an extra jump on our first day. The neighborhood was nice and close to local establishments as well as access to St Louis attractions. Would definitely stay here again if I was back in the St Louis area.
Enjoyed our stay! Great house and host. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you. They met us at the door, showed us around, talked to us about the history of the house and then left us on our own. Parking across the street was not a problem-lots of room, although you will be parking on the street and not in a parking lot. Loved the front and back decks. Great way to get a feel of St. Louis city life.
Perfect! Hospitable and welcoming, Diana made our stay so wonderful. This is THE place to stay in St Louis, a home away from home.
It was nice experience. diana we called grandma was so kind. I cant forget this house. I really want to recommend this house.
We had an amazing time at Diana and Jim's. The place was clean,inviting, comfortable, full of old neighborhood charm that made my husband feel right at home. Diana was so accommodating to our specific needs and to our little girls, who also can't wait till our next visit. The girls love you, Diana, thank you!
Born and raised in the same house, raised our children here and recently moved to the first floor. Jim and I love to travel, trains have become my new love and recently took Amtrak from St. louis to Reno...most beautiful ride Colorado and Utah breathtaking. We've traveled to Italy, London, Prague to name a few. We are devout Green Bay Packer fans and love attending early season games and training camp. We have 2 amazing grown children, our daughter a ESOL teacher and our son an Army Aviator and 7 grand chlldren, 2 local and the other 5 where the Army sends them..
I married the first boy I ever "fell in love" with at the age of 10 and met up 16 years later and married. Jim has worked for Fed Ex since it's inception and hopes to retire next year. Me....you name it, I've done it!! I've worked for a bookkeeper, salon, public relations consultant for an arts high school, founded a not for profit for artistic students, caretaker to seniors, janitor and an event planner. My proudestt event was a 3 day celebration including a house party, evening dinner party with a master illutionist, bagpiper piping,and getting the birthday "girl", who was a diehard St. Louis Caqrdinals fan onto the field for the first pitch for a game between the Cards and the Cubs.. Davis Freese was the catcher for her and an amazing pitch right to him to celebrate her 100th birthday.
