Escape to Missouri's Most Storied Setting

FOR EXCEPTIONAL EVENTS & UNFORGETTABLE STAYS

Nestled on acres of scenic rolling hills near the Missouri River, The Inns at St. Albans offers high-end hospitality in a magnificent, historic setting. A premiere destination for overnight stays, outdoor weddings, corporate meetings, dining events and private parties, we welcome you and yours to gather, retreat and celebrate amidst these extraordinary surroundings. 

Once considered America’s western frontier, this land was first charted by Lewis and Clark. Three historic properties anchor The Inns at St. Albans. Old Barn Inn was originally built as a barn in 1840. Today it operates as an intimate indoor dining and outdoor event venue. The Studio Inn was built by renowned architect, Theodore Link, the designer of St. Louis Union Station. In the early 1900s, the palatial estate served as the summer home of Irene Walter Johnson, wife of Oscar Johnson, co-founder of the International Shoe Company. Guests can now indulge in luxurious stays and grand open-air celebrations at the mansion. A staple of the St. Albans community since its establishment in 1892, Head’s Store continues its tradition of offering sustenance and a gathering space for our community. 

The stories here abound. Come create your own.

What They're Saying

ABOUT THE INNS AT ST. ALBANS

I just wanted to say again how wonderful our wedding was on Saturday night. We have heard from many of the guests, some who have told us it was the best wedding they've ever been to. I know the Bride and Groom enjoyed themselves and from the dancing, I'd say the guests did as well.

My sister and I traveled to St Albans to take a cooking class. The cooking class was really fun and well organized. It was well paced...a good mixture of learning and leisure. We did learn a lot but still had fun. Hospitality was second to none...the owners and staff really wanted to take care of us. I am already planning my next trip back!

We went hiking today to soak in some of the beauty of fall in the Missouri countryside, and stopped at The Head Store for lunch. This cafe is located in an original 1892 store, the current owners have done a great job in restoration.

We stayed at the cottages at Old Barn on Easter weekend to celebrate our 41st anniversary. The properties are beautiful, meticulously tended, extremely clean and simply beautiful. The [Head's Store] breakfast is a must! We will be back and have already referred to friends and family.
