The Inn St. Gemme Beauvais is the oldest continuously operated Bed and Breakfast in Missouri. The Inn has a three star rating by Mobil. It has been a recipient of the Golden Star Award from Inn Style, Inc. and was featured in the June 1998 issue of Country Inns magazine. The history of the Inn dates back to the 1700’s when the daughter of Vital St Gemme Beauvais bought the property. The building was constructed in 1848 as a private residence for Felix Rozier. The Inn maintains the splendor of the past with period decor while adding contemporary luxuries in each room. Upon approaching the wide veranda leading to the front porch, one cannot help but have their eyes drawn toward the six tall pillars that grace the front of this three-story brick colonial mansion. After entering the front door your senses are inundated. The four-armed brass chandelier dating back to 1849 located in the foyer demands your immediate attention. The sounds of soft classical music play gently in the background while the smell of fresh baked goods lingers in the air. Janet Joggerst, the innkeeper at The Inn St. Gemme Beauvais, serves up a delicious and extremely satisfying breakfast. Assorted breads, quiches, egg dishes, and a savory stuffed French Toast dish are among some of the choices you will have to make. Add to this your choice of coffee, teas, juices, and milk. The temptation to taste everything is almost overwhelming, but be assured, Janet isn’t satisified until you are. She has received awards for her hospitality and service of over 24 years to the Inn St. Gemme Beauvais.
