Named for acclaimed artist Rose O'Neill, this enticing room of twilight blue features the best of a "social" location (off the second-floor parlor) and a private sanctuary (with a private balcony entrance/exit). It has a four-poster iron canopy king bed draped with lace, two-person bubble jet tub, gas fireplace, stocked beverage bar, coffee maker, digital cable with a flat-screen TV, WiFi access and a private bath with shower.
Originally the master bedroom, enjoy the beautiful bay windows in this sunny yellow alcove. This is the most photographed room in the house. Amenities include a four-poster king bed, gas fireplace with sitting area, stocked beverage bar, coffee maker, digital cable with a flat-screen TV, WiFi access, and a large bathroom with an antique claw-foot tub with shower. You will not be able to put down the autobiography of Charles McCann, builder of the house. You may want to invite your friends and family to enjoy the second-floor parlor with a fireplace just outside your door.
Named for the fourth owners of the home, the rich burgundy and hunter green of this Victorian room with a four-poster queen bed make it a favorite. The private bath features the original porcelain fixtures and built-in cabinetry from 1910 when the plumbing came indoors! There is a coffeemaker, flat-screen TV, WiFi access, and a wicker lounge, but you may want to enjoy the second-floor parlor with a fireplace just outside your door. For folks traveling together, the Rosen, McCann, and O'Neill rooms, all on the second floor, share a common parlor with a gas fireplace, couch, chairs, and a game table.
This room is named after Missouri artist Thomas Hart Benton and features fifteen-foot lofted ceilings and skylights. Our largest room, there are two queen beds, a living room area (with a sofa), digital cable with a flat-screen TV, DVD player, WiFi access, coffeemaker, microwave, a private bath with an antique claw-foot tub/shower and a stocked beverage bar just outside your door. This room is great for kids and families with plenty of fun places to explore. The Wilder Room (described above) and Benton Room are perfect rooms to share with family or friends. We have had ladies' prayer groups, the bachelorette parties, and sleepovers for preteens in these two rooms (Mom or Dad gets the Wilder Room!)
