Central West End Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Elves Manor Guest House is an entire house all your own in St. Louis' most urbane and cosmopolitan neighborhood, the Central West End. The house consists of two stories of living space, with two bedrooms and two full baths. Elves Manor has a fully equipped kitchen, central air conditioning, a gas fireplace, washer/dryer, high-speed Internet service & WIFI, cable television, fax machine, year-round outdoor hot tub, and secure parking in a garage underneath the house for up to two cars. Elves Manor sleeps up to six, with something truly unusual: A sleeper sofa bed in the second-floor sitting room that is worth sleeping on!

Guests are greeted with serve-when-you-want breakfast foods, unguarded welcome treats, a wide selection of teas, freshly roasted coffee if desired, and the award-winning signature dish, Not-Gooey Butter Cake. (If you prefer, you may substitute organic brownies.)

The house is reserved for one guest or set of guests at a time. You never share the house with strangers.

The base rate is for two people sharing one bedroom and one bathroom (choose which bed and bath when you arrive). Add $40/night for each additional person over two people. Pets are not permitted. Smoking is prohibited in the home or anywhere on the property.

Elves Manor is in St. Louis' Central West End, one of the city's best walking neighborhoods. Within walking distance is St. Louis University, IKEA, Cortex and Washington University Medical Center. The neighborhood features magnificent historic architecture, as well as numerous restaurants, supermarkets, coffee houses, bars and entertainment. Leave your car behind! This is the city's most transit- and bike-friendly neighborhood. When you're done enjoying or exploring the city, relax on Elves Manor's full deck overlooking its landscaped gardens.

About Karen Karabell

My name is Karen Karabell. I'm a St. Louis native who lives with my family in a 105-year-old house in front of the carriage house. When I'm not busy with Elves Manor, I work in my family's property management business. I am an instructor of CyclingSavvy, which helps people discover how to be safe when riding their bicycles anywhere. In my spare time, I am a gardener, meditator and yoga enthusiast.

Why Karen Karabell chose Missouri

Carriage houses are a St. Louis tradition in the Central West End, our wonderful walking neighborhood. We built our carriage house for my mother, who lived there from April 2002 until August 2006.

What makes this apartment unique

This may be one of the only vacation properties where you can park your car and forget about it! There is so much to do within easy walking or biking distance. Nearby are dozens of restaurants, two first-run movie theaters, coffee houses, and all kinds of shopping. A short walk east is the main campus of St. Louis University. About one mile west is the Washington University Medical Center, and our city's crown jewel, Forest Park. Forest Park is home to the world-renowned St. Louis Zoo, St. Louis Art Museum, Missouri Historical Society and St. Louis Science Center. The park's 1,293 acres also contain one of the area's finest golf courses, Steinberg Ice Rink, and a boathouse with its own restaurant.

Reviewer Comments:

Four of us ( including a 3 year old ) stayed at Elves Manor for a long weekend visiting my daughter's family in St. Louis ( which included a 2 year old). Although i've stayed at other SF Manor locations in the past and have always been completely happy with my lodgings, this trip was nothing short of perfect. The two story cottage is charming, vey clean, well appointed and full of interesting books and decorations. It was both roomy and comfortable enough to accommodate our two families for meals and general hanging out. The little kids had plenty of room to play; the 3 year old asked if we could live there forever. Tasty snacks were abundant and an unexpected treat. Karen and Harold are the embodiment of outstanding customer service. They could not be more engaging, flexible and kind. As they always have been in my numerous experiences with them. I can't recommend this place highly enough!

We were so impressed with the manor! Not only was it cozy and cute as can be, but also, very clean! Karen is kind and down to earth. She had the kitchen stocked with snacks, amazing coffee and anything you could ever want for breakfast. We ate breakfasts there and were more than satisfied. The beds and furniture were all really comfortable. The garden is beautiful and the hot tub is a fun added bonus!!! We had a blast and will definately be going back! I'm so glad such a great place exists ran by great people! Highly recommend!!

Elves Manor was the perfect place for our stay in St. Louis. The furnishings are comfortable and the decorations enchanting. The kitchen is equipped with just about any appliance, cookware, and utensil you need to prepare meals. There are also a variety of good restaurants in the neighborhood. A pharmacy and grocery store are a short walk from the Manor. The home is right in the center of the city but was surprisingly quiet. The backyard is landscaped in a way to make sitting on the deck sipping coffee very relaxing and private. Our hostess went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. We are already planning our get-together for next year.

Didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Elves Manor was the perfect place for our cousins reunion. We felt right at home the minute we walked into this delightful home. The furnishings are comfortable and the decorations enchanting. The kitchen is equipped with just about any appliance and cookware you need to prepare meals. If we needed a utensil we found it. There are also a variety of good restaurants in the neighborhood. A pharmacy and grocery store are a short walk from the Manor. Considering the home is right in the center of the city it was surprisingly quiet. The backyard is beautiful and private which made sitting on the deck sipping coffee very relaxing. Karen went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. You can't help but smile in her presence. I'm ready to move in.

We did love everything about Elves Manor - the beautiful house, the great location, the great garden, deck and hot tub - everything except the tiny elf sculptures that we hid while we were there! ( : We especially appreciated our hostess in the main house, Karen, who made our stay wonderful.

Fabulous Stay at Elves Manor

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Elves Manor for 6 nights while in St. Louis for my daughters wedding. The carriage house made us feel right at home. It is located in a beautiful neighborhood within walking distance of shops and restaurants in the Central Westend. It is conveniently located for easy access to downtown, Soulard and St. Louis University.

I can't say enough good things about the owner Karen and the care she put into this home. We so appreciated the thoughtfulness in the amenities and goodies left for us. We enjoyed use of the hot tub and the sitting area on the deck. Also a big plus was the garage.

My husband I thought this was among one of the best places we have stayed.

Thank you Karen.
