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.
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.
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.
Lovely place to stay - like stepping back in time. Comfortable beds, some snacks in the fridge to greet us. Would definitely stay again!
