This charming, light-filled cottage feels like its own private hideaway, yet it's close to everything St. Louis has to offer. Tucked between trees in a quiet Maplewood neighborhood, it's a 15-minute walk to the MetroLink and a 10-minute drive to Washington University, Webster University, Fontbonne University, Forest Park, and Clayton. Business travelers and families alike will appreciate the washer/dryer, fast WIFI and cable TV.

Since we weren’t very familiar with St. Louis, we booked Michael’s guest house based mostly on the price, photos, and reviews; we’re so happy with our choice! It’s tucked back in a quiet neighborhood, but it’s also easy to get to wherever you want to go in St. Louis. The house…

We had a great time staying at Michael's place! The decor was very stylish, it was definitely clean. The loft bedroom was beautiful with all the light coming in from the sky lights. The appliances all worked well. No significant issues, would stay again!

Wonderful little place. We loved it. It was very clean and well maintained. There were so many thoughtful details, including an entire binder full of helpful tips about the St Louis area. Everything we needed was provided. Excellent!!!
