Casa Magnolia Bed and Breakfast is a beautiful Victorian home built in 1906 by Jacob Stockey, owner of the largest brick company in St. Louis. Jacob built the house as a wedding present for his daughter Edith. Since then, it has been a home to Charles Galloway, the 1904 World's Fair organist, Charles Galloway Jr. and his wife Patricia, Dave Lehleitner (who married widowed Patricia), and finally us; the Felix family.
Across the street from Casa Magnolia is spectacular Tower Grove Park. This public park was a gift to St. Louis from world-renowned botanist Henry Shaw. There are 11 gorgeous and unique pavillions for outdoor picnics, parties, and weddings. As a guest at Casa Magnolia, you can take advantage of the free concerts, organic farmer's market, tennis courts, biking trails, and the wading pool just by crossing the street. Before your delicious breakfast, get up for an early morning jog or walk in the park and get your fix of nature. Breathe deep, relax, and take in the many different trees, shrubs, flowers and birds in the park. You'll come back happy and hungry; we guarantee it!
The Missouri Botanical Garden is 7/10ths of a mile door to door from Casa Magnolia. Many of our guests come to attend the yearly events that the Garden hosts, such as the Japanese Garden Festival,the Orchid Show, the Lantern Festival, the Christmas Garden Glow (pictured here) and many, many more. During the summer months pack up some wine, cheese and crackers and enjoy free concerts by local musicians every Wednesday evening.
