The Mermaid House is a step back in time. Perfect get away for bicyclists, birders, and canoeists or those just looking for a peaceful spot to relax. Located just 1 block to the Riverfront Bike trail, and just 10 miles to the Saint Louis Arch. Columbia Bottoms Tourism Center is just 2 miles away which is the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. Hostess can book guided canoe trips on the river.
The charm and theme of the house were great. Had a great view of the river. Beds were comfortable and the host is very helpful.
We had a great time at the Mermaid Mansion. The place offers lovely views and it grows on you. This is not one of those cozy-to-the-hilt uber-decorated places. This is more of a sprawling period mansion or oversized farm homes from 140 years ago. It was a great place to stay and we loved exploring all the rooms and art. The master bed is more like a king than a queen and the full size bed is great too. The other room with two beds was fine for the 6 and 8 year old in our party but adults with fixed needs for a new firm mattress should stick to the first two beds. The three bathrooms were more than enough too and the fridge was stocked with lots of goodies. We had a special request in the day before arrival and Caroline did a great job helping us out to ensure a great time for all 6 of us. We would stay here again.
My place is close to public transport and parks,. You’ll love my place because of ...wait, you won't love my place. You'll hate it. In fact, you'll be lucky to leave it in the same condition in which you arrive. If you don't hate it then you're not in the right place.. My place is good for solo adventurers, business travelers, big groups, and furry friends (pets).
