ELEGANT HISTORIC 3BED/2BATH HOME IN HISTORIC ST. CHARLES- 6 GUEST MAXIMUM

St. Charles House Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Second Empire French style 3 bed, 2 bath in quiet Historic District

L'auberge ('the inn') St. Charles, circa 1868 Second Empire French home contributing to the National Register Historic Frenchtown District. Recently underwent a complete restoration saving original doors, wavy glass transom windows and beautiful woodwork while adding a full gourmet kitchen, beautiful bathrooms and high end furnishings. You get the best of both worlds; the quaintness of a bed and breakfast with the comfort and privacy of a fully furnished home. Located in the quiet, Frenchtown District of old town St. Charles, yet still within walking distance of all the shops, restaurants, historic sites and festivities of Main Street, Steel Shop Indoor Tennis Club, Missouri Riverfront and Katy Trail and just 8 miles to St. Louis Lambert Airport and only twenty minutes to St. Louis. Within a scenic 40 min. drive to many of Missouri's award winning wineries. Come see why picturesque St. Charles is nicknamed 'the Williamsburg of the Midwest'

This home includes secure off street parking, outdoor gas grill and comfortably furnished covered back porch area. Inside, the main floor has a large living room with large flatscreen TV, game table and desk: full bathroom with tub/shower; large dining room that seats six; and the kitchen has cherry cabinets, stone countertops, gas range with warming drawer, dishwasher, Keurig coffeemaker, micro, full sized ref/fzr, toaster, mixer, blender and more. Plus, full sized laundry equipment is tucked in a closet.

Upstairs are three bedrooms; The king bed room has a hand painted Missouri River scene headboard, reading area and flat-screen TV with DVD player. The queen bed room also has a reading dormer and TV with DVD player. The equally beautiful, albeit smaller, full bed room has an antique brass bed. All have ultra comfortable cool gel foam mattresses, luxury linens and hardwood floors with access to the large bath with antique claw-foot soaking tub. We also provide luxury bath salts and soaps from Herbaria.

Interior designer and sales manager during the week and historic property restorers on the weekends, the guest house is our sixth project in St. Charles, this is our only guest house in St. Charles. We do, however have another guest property in Panama City Beach, Florida (see #125313). We live one block away, so we're usually 'on site' managers to assure a wonderful stay.

Ed Akers purchased this house in 2010

We bought this property in our continued effort to restore and improve our historic neighborhood. It took over a year to complete the rehab and all of the approvals that St. Charles required to open the first guest house in historic Frenchtown.

We had long admired the beautiful Mansard roof windows, pretty front porch woodwork and large lawn of this house in our neighborhood. When it came up for sale, we immediately purchased it thinking we would move into it ourselves and only after it was mostly redone did we decide to turn it into a vacation house. So, it has high end finishes and accents that are seldom seen in guest houses. It's just a pretty house inside and out and we know you'll love it as much as we do!

Four senior ladies absolutely loved our week in this home and would gladly return. The only caveat would be that thee stairs to the second floor are not easily navigated as they are very steep.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you and 'the girls'! And, ah yes, we are graced with those beautiful 11' tall ceilings, but alias (as WE well know) it adds to the second floor climb! To think they used those stairs over a hundred and fifty years ago wearing long dresses with full petticotes while carrying a baby. What a feat!

The house was beautiful! Decorated very tastefully. I hope to have an opportunity to rent again as I really enjoyed my stay. Road along the Katy trail which was just a short walk away. Downtown St. Charles is also within walking distance. Looking for a place to stay? Search no farther. Both Ed and Chris live close by and it was a pleasure to meet and talk with them. Hope to see them again and enjoy their beautiful house.

We arrived to everything the VRBO description depicts and more. The property was very clean and updated. We took a day to ride the Katy trail and shop downtown St Charles complete with lunch at one of the many ambiance filled restaurants. Owner was a pleasure to deal with and our family had a great trip. We will be back...

A beautiful and clean home. Perfect for a getaway weekend for three couples. The kitchen had everything we needed and it was the perfect size for all of us. If we are ever in the St. Louis area again we would come back!

A great place to stay

We stayed on May 2, 3 and 4th 2013. This place is great for a couple or a small group. This should be your first choice in St. Charles. The owners did a wonderful job. L'auberge is relaxing and near everything. Make sure to eat at Magpies in St. Charles.. Also get that GPS out and find one of the two Ted Drew’s Locations. Ben and Jerry WHO???
We had four adults and room for two more. The Katy trail is one block away. It was wonderful to spend a few days in a home from 1868. The many modern touches made it great. We enjoyed setting out on the comfortable covered back porch. We had several rainy days so it was nice to relax outside and stay dry. The owner Ed was very nice and checked in with us to make sure all was well. We will plan staying at L'auberge for our next trip to St. Charles. We drove 25 miles out to Montelle Winery and had a great time. .
If you are planning a get-away to St. Charles be sure and book this VRBO. Thanks Ed for making this property available.
