Whenever we revisit a city we always enjoy visiting the same restaurants, antiques shops, bars and businesses that we visited previously.

Sadly, businesses close for whatever reason and friends move or?

Whenever we think of St. Louis the first thing that comes to mind is ARCHITECTURE! Of all the cities in the country we love the architecture in St. Louis more than anyplace, including New Orleans. They have the most beautiful stately estates there. And there are hundreds of them with luscious lawns, gargoyles and statuary. Hundreds of historic buildings and churches are everywhere. St. Louis is celebrating their 250th Anniversary this year.

The one thing that is always there for us is where we stay and that is the BREWER’S HOUSE Bed and Breakfast. They are located at 1829 Lami Street, which is just a few blocks from downtown and close to the shopping and fine museums that the city has to offer. Brewer’s House is a Civil War vintage home nestled amongst several breweries.

Rick Compton is the owner/host and has been having guests there for years. He makes all of his guests feel right at home. They have off street parking and is located in a very nice neighborhood They have a large deck where one can sit and view downtown and the surrounding area while having a cocktail or wine. The house was build around 1860 and has been kept up wonderful. All rooms have private baths. Naturally, they have WiFi.
