Urban Farmhouse in STL
Size –1 Bedroom • 1 Bathroom • Sleeps 1-4
Gorgeous 2 bed apt with loads of living space and a 10 min drive to all of St. Louis' attractions. The Farmhouse is super close to the area hospitals and St. Louis University. You will find everything you need for a short or extended stay. It is set up for work or play. Enjoy our super comfy king sized mattresses to rest.
I love a place that has the things I didn't remember to bring. Let's face it...no one wants to buy salt and pepper or a huge jar of spices for a short stay. We have tried to think of everything, but if we missed something, let us know and we will get more stuff to make the next guest's stay even better.
We love furry friends and have five in our home. We welcome pets if you clear your pet's visit with us first. We charge an additional $25 per pet fee for pets. We also ask that you clean up after your pet's unique mess.
All guests have access to the entire apartment including kitchen, living area, dining room, porch and bedroom which are super spacious.
We are available through the your booking app for any issues that arise during your stay. We have staff nearby and we have a property manager that can respond to maintenance issues.
Until I experienced St. Louis, I never would have known what a delightful cultural hub it has become. There is so much to see, I still haven't covered all of the attractions. Making your stay even more enjoyable, Saint Louis is a foodie haven. We are super close to the area hospitals and St. Louis University which is just around the corner.
There is lots of public transport in St. Louis and Ubers a plenty. If I were visiting, I would Uber everywhere.
There are also lots of buses and a trolley that goes from the city to the Central West End.
If you prefer to rent a car, there is plenty of space to park on Lafayette.
The laundry is in the basement. You will need about $3.00 in quarters for the wash. Laundry soap is in the pantry.
About the Owner
The Marquette Building is owned by City Castle LLC operated by Lisa Gallagher and Devon Rucker. We bought the building from Jim Roos of Neighborhood Enterprises. Jim had a long history of working with the city to improve St. Louis City neighborhoods. Like many cities, it suffered through a period of suburban flight leaving the city without the tax base and investment to keep the city vibrant. When we took over the building in 2016, the area was just seeing signs of true investment and diversity. This is my favorite building in my portfolio. Totaling 12 units, the apartment building was the 4th 3 story building in the area. One other 3 story building built by the same builder is the Lafayette which sits opposite the Marquette Building. The St. Louis Daily Globe penned an article, dated December 8 1812, chronicling the building's ground breaking. The building's construction cost a whopping $30,000 back then which was considered to be a tidy sum.
Immediately after the 3 bedroom apartment now known as The Retreat became vacant, Lisa went about creating a variable stay rental with furnishings acquired in antique shops and from other sources in the area. Since Lisa is a world traveler, she loves the experience of meeting and knowing people from all over the world. She feels that world travel is a humbling and mind opening experience that offers the greatest opportunity for world peace.
