About Gary Sadler

Gary sand Jerilyn Sadler are owners and caretakers of this turn-of-the-century Tudor style mansion and live onsite in the third floor apartment. You may see us about the property from time to time unless we're traveling but in any case, we are at your service. Everyone has a gift and hospitality is ours. We love serving and have done so in St. Louis since early 2014. Prior to arriving we spent 18 years in the Colorado high country, living among the looming peaks of Summit County. We have one son who is currently attending college in California. That leaves us with our remaining child, our King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, Cookie.

Gary Sadler purchased this house in 2014

Why Gary Sadler chose Missouri

We love our neighborhood for it's magnificent parks nearby, multiple tennis centers and golf courses, free museums and zoo, the Missouri Botanical, and the gamut of dining and shopping options. Countless opportunities for the arts, entertainment, and fine dining keep us coming back for more. And of course, if you choose to barricade within our private walls and fences, our lavish common areas, spacious and well-appointed bedrooms, and peaceful courtyard will nurture any group and enable new bonds that will leave lasting impressions for all.

What makes this house unique

Our particular location is relatively quiet and away from the hustle and bustle but still near enough to everything - within a ten-minute drive, Uber, or taxi. Public transportation is also convenient.

Beautiful residence

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with extended family over the Thanksgiving holiday. The amount of space and the privacy of the bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs was perfect. Although the weather was cold, we took advantage of the outdoor space for the kids to run around and play. The location was great, near a park and the neighborhood is beautiful. Since this home is used as a Bed & Breakfast it had all of the amenities needed in the bedrooms (toiletries, plenty of linens, hair dryer, great water pressure, wi-fi, etc).

In other large homes that we've rented, we were supplied with some kitchen staples, which was a huge help when cooking meals. Since this kitchen was completely empty, it was a bit of a chore to have to purchase everything needed to cook for the week. We also missed having laundry available on-site and spent a lot of time running errands from the house to do laundry and pick up items from the grocery store. (We had 4 small children and spent a lot of time here for meals). The spa looked amazing, but unfortunately we didn't have the chance to use it.

The owners were a pleasure to work with - extremely responsive and thorough in their assistance. I don't think this is the place for our next family reunion since we learned that on-site laundry and meals at home are a necessity. That said, I'd certainly consider staying here at the B&B and would definitely recommend it for a slightly older group (again - the spa room looked amazing!)

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words, Nicole. It was certainly a pleasure working with you and your group and we're glad that you had a nice time at our place. We encourage guests who require laundry to use the service that is recommended in the Welcome guides available throughout the property. They will pick up your laundry and return it the next day clean and folded and at a very reasonable rate so that you may fully enjoy your time together.

Excellent location and accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of four couples and the house worked out beautifully for our 3-night trip. The house has two queen and two king beds and each bedroom has a bathroom attached. The location is excellent for getting to The Hill, the Botanical Gardens, or downtown. The mattresses and linens were wonderful. The house has lots of gathering spaces both indoors and out. The kitchen has all the dishes, appliances, and pans needed if you decide to prepare a meal.

Gary was very responsive to my questions prior to arriving. We thoroughly enjoyed the property.

Lovely house and spacious rooms

  • 5 of 5

Excellent back lawn area for kids to run. Conveniently located across the street from a park. Easy uber drive to downtown St. Louis. Easy parking. The only draw back was the owners live on the third story and walk through the kitchen to get to their unit. They were very kind, but it was a little strange not having the privacy of entire house to ourselves.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the 5-start review, Heather. We enjoyed meeting your family. Please accept our apologies for the intrusion. We often are out of town but you just happened to catch us at home base and our paths crossed much more than with our typical rental. We generally try our best to respect the privacy of our renters and keep our distance yet remain available should they need help with anything.

A Fantastic House!

  • 5 of 5

We visited St. Louis recently for my daughter's wedding. The house was spacious and very comfortable. There were 10 of us - including 4 couples, our 11 year-old grand daughter and great grandma. Each of us had the perfect spot to sleep in and several of us were able to enjoy the hot tub. The Sadlers are great hosts. The home is normally a Bed & Breakfast but our stay was strictly the bed part, which was fine since we had a professional chef among us. She raved about the kitchen. In fact we were welcome to use herbs from the garden too. There was even a small refrigerator and ice maker on the second floor. All in all it was a fantastic weekend. The terrific home we stayed in was the icing on the cake of a great wedding experience.

The property was perfect for our multi-family holiday vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The location was a plus. The property is near downtown attractions and restaurants. It is large and nicely furnished, providing ample space to both gather and spread out in smaller groups. We had 4 young children in our group, and the facilities accommodated their needs as well.
