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.

A gorgeous historic home with all the modern comforts!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed this past weekend at this lovely resorted home near the Central West End. It was perfect for our needs and a complete delight to stay there. The owners we most accommodating and pleasant to work with. The Mansion is very very impressive and in excellent condition. It has many large bedrooms each with their own bath. Each are tastefully decorated and very comfortable – especially the beds. We rented the entire property for our family to use over the weekend, using it as our “home away from home” during our daughter’s wedding weekend. Parking is secure behind the home making ingress and egress easy. We would highly recommend it for a couple’s weekend or a larger family use as we did. 5 stars!!

This historic St Louis mansion was fantastic. A rare property with original woodwork custom detail.

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion with 10 Adults and 3 children. The house worked well and never felt "cramped" for space. The ensuite rooms provided privacy and comfort for all. The house location, close to downtown and midtown was ideal to easily explore St Louis. Our host Gary was helpful from the beginning, answering questions and providing necessary detail before our arrival, and responding to any needs during our stay. Highly recommend a stay at Fleur de Lys.

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.
