Originally built in 1885 and designed by Eckel and Mann, the beautifully restored Whiskey Mansion features charming rooms, as well as a grand parlor, formal dining room, music room, and library. Though all rooms include a private bath and free WiFi access, the décor of each room varies; the water-spa room features a hydrojet spa tub for two, and the cozy tower room sports a bay-window seating area ideal for watching the birds play pickup games of cricket. Guests are welcome to take some time to explore the local sights or spend their mini retreats spooning with good books on the large covered porch. At check-in, visitors will receive a $10 gift card to Bad Art Bistro, where expert chefs please palates with braised lamb, cuban orange pork roast, and other global fusion cuisine.
Whiskey Mansion Bed and Breakfast
Before famed architecture firm Eckel & Mann won the competition to design Saint Louis's new city hall, it drew up the plans for the building that would become Whiskey Mansion Bed and Breakfast in Saint Joseph, located in northwest Missouri. Built in 1885, the mansion has since been artfully restored, though it still maintains some of its turn-of-the-century elements. With its sitting rooms dressed in golden wallpaper and red-velvet couches, it has a distinct Gothic feel. The building’s charming Old-World vibe attracted the makers of the 2008 film Bonnie & Clyde vs. Dracula, who used the mansion as a set.
The house features a grand parlor, formal dining room, music room, and library. Victorian touches can be found throughout the house, especially in the six guest rooms. Each is individually decorated with an antique wooden bed and has a private bathroom with a pedestal sink and clawfoot soaking tub.
