A new 12-bedroom luxury guesthouse and meeting lodge will officially open its doors to the public on Memorial Day weekend at The Inns at St. Albans at the western edge of the St. Louis metropolitan area. The $4.4 million, 11,000 square foot lodge with a wraparound veranda and lake views will sleep up to 32 people in a range of room configurations featuring king and queen beds, mini wet bars and private baths. Located within walking distance to all the historic attractions at The Inns at St. Albans, the new lodge also features a state-of-the-art meeting space for up to 25 people.
“Our new lodge offers excellent accommodations for a variety of guests and occasions, from individual travelers and weekend staycationers to larger groups like wedding parties, family reunions and corporate clients requiring an entire block of rooms,” said Schuyler Clark, General Manager of The Inns at St. Albans. “We have nearly doubled the bedrooms available at The Studio Inn, the Old Barn Inn Cottages and The Farm House so more guests can experience our sought-after overnight getaway destination flavor. Later this summer we will be opening a three-bedroom renovated home called Link’s Cottage to keep pace with our overnight stay popularity with individual travelers, couples or groups.”
Destination event guests can participate in many nearby activities while staying at The Inns at St. Albans including access to 36 holes of golf and on top-rated courses nearby, weekend cooking classes, wine tastings and hiking trails.
Construction of the new lodge began in September 2019 on the site of what was once the Chesterfield Day School near the historic Heads Store, where guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. New and renovated facilities added at The Inns at St. Albans in recent years include a larger event pavilion at the Studio Inn which can seat up to 180, a new tiered ceremony site at the Old Barn Inn, and a new pavilion in the Old Barn Inn gardens that can house outdoor cocktail events. The existing pavilion at the Old Barn Inn can accommodate up to 220 seated diners.
Nestled in scenic rolling hills first charted by Lewis & Clark near the Missouri River, The Inns at St. Albans is situated on what was once considered America’s western frontier. The rich history of St. Albans is steeped in Americana culture from the 1700-1800s including Osage Indians, Daniel Boone, Lewis & Clark, Mark Twain, the International Shoe Company and riverboat commerce. The Studio Inn was built by renowned architect Theodore Link, the designer of St. Louis Union Station. For many years, the area was the country retreat of some wealthy St. Louis families.
