We currently have four guests rooms, all with private bath. For leisure apart from the guest rooms, you may enjoy a quiet book in the library, some music, a bit of TV in the parlor, or a quiet cup of tea on the front porch.
The porch can also accommodate anyone wishing to smoke, as smoking indoors is strictly prohibited. Anyone who should choose to indulge in an indoor smoke may be subject to an additional charge up to one half the room rate.
Weather permitting, you can enjoy that refreshing stroll through our garden as well as the nearby park.
Our Guest Rooms
The President's Room
(pictured above) During Fredrick Lehmann's political career, he was reputed to have
entertained three different presidents. Lehmann's personal correspondence supports this at
least in part. This expansive guest room, with its golden maple flooring, gently wakes
guests in the morning with the warmth of the sun pouring in from the east. And in the
evening, with its western view, treats you with a scene of the setting sun. Adjoining the
President's room is a sprawling, marble tiled private bath, authentically restored with
many of its original features. $189 per night.
The Map Room This room was originally used to display Lehmann's vast map collection. Located on the Third floor, one has the feeling of being nestled in the tree tops. The unique features of this room include a Frank Lloyd Wright style gas fireplace, golden maple hardwood flooring and an antique carved mahogany four-poster bed. The adjoining bathroom was artfully created from the former walk-in cedar closet. $169. per night.
The World's Fair Room Lehmann was on the Board of Directors of the 1904 World's Fair. This room was named to honor that distinguished position in St. Louis history. Originally, this room was a guest room, now with its own Victorian designed private adjoining bath created from a former walk-in closet. $149 per night.
The Maid's Room The Lehmann's had both day help and live-in help, two such servants being housed in the Maids' Room, in the servants' wing of the house. In keeping with the status of hired help of the time, the Maids' Room is arranged simply, with a period, 1890's bedroom suite, a patchwork quilt, and simple, family portraits on the walls. A full bathroom, situated next to and dedicated to the Maids' Room serves as its private bath. $125 per night.
Nora's Room This recently renovated room is named after Frederick Lehmann's wife, Nora. Overlooking the side garden, with a southern exposure, Nora's Room is sun-filled all day. This room was originally the master bedroom of the house and has been faithfully restored to reveal the cherry woodwork rescued from under eight layers of paint. The original maple floors have been refinished to their original golden color. The faithfully restored private marble bath has been recreated with authentic fixtures and the original marble sink. Maximum occupancy 4. $169/night for two (king size Tempur-pedic bed). For children 2-9, add $14.50/night; ages 10-adult, add $25/night for each additional guest)
Each morning, guests are pampered with a bountiful breakfast served to them in the formal dining room on the first floor. The oak paneled walls and ceiling, with its fireplace and built-in buffet, looks much the same as it did 116 years ago. With a view of the gardens outside, guests can savor varied breakfast of fresh fruit, freshly baked pastry, and an egg entree. All of this is accompanied by piping hot coffee and tea, fruit juice and ice cold milk. For those who like simplicity, cereal, toast and jam can be found on the table amongst the other goodies of the morning. With advance notice, those with special dietary needs can be accommodated.
Fine restaurants, unique shops and many St. Louis attractions are close by. The Arch, Busch Stadium, Union Station, Missouri Botanical Gardens, Laclede's Landing, the St. Louis Zoo, Art Museum, History Museum, Muny Opera and the Science Center are all within ten minutes drive. Marie can assist you in planning your activities or recommending the best St. Louis cuisine.
