I loved this place! Very comfortable house in a good location between the Arch and Forest Park. The owner, Karen did a great job at making us feel at home. She was extremely thorough and went above and beyond to make sure we had whatever we needed. Great attention to detail. We loved the hot tub and the gooey butterless... More

I have stayed at Elves Manor twice, in March 2014 and in 2011. I love the house, the hosts, the food, the location. It was cool in March, and we used the hot-tub and fireplace. Very soothing.

We'd love to keep it a secret, but this is the best place to stay in the city. Period. We have stayed all over town and nobody has a more wonderful space and location. So well done you'll want to stay an extra day... Or ten.
