The Iron Horse Hotel lodges bed-and-breakfasters within nine rustic rooms that overlook a vibrant garden and the sights of Blackwater. Guests can choose from any of the available, train-named rooms, such as the Southern Belle (a $125 value/night), which boasts a four-post bed, fireplace, and a view of the passing railroad tracks, and the City of New Orleans (a $125 value/night), with exposed brick walls, a private entrance to the gardens, and a portal that connects directly to Bourbon Street. Rooms are valued from $89 per night to $125 per night.
The chefs at Settlers Inn refer to the recipes of yesteryear as they cook up steaks, chicken, and game the old-fashioned way at this cozy restaurant nestled in a log home. Even the desserts, such as cobblers and brownies, taste like they were made with a grandmother's TLC.
Even if pizza isn't your thing—which is unthinkable—the menu at St. Louis Pizza & Wings has something tasty and satisfying to please palates. The kitchen staff prepares 14 signature sandwiches, including an open-faced ham and cheese on garlic bread, and seven traditional pasta dishes for in-house dining or takeout. Double-decker burgers and boneless wings sate cravings for classic pub cuisine, and nine specialty pizzas come with hand-tossed thick crusts or St. Louis–style thin crusts.
