My husband and I stayed here on cold winter's night in December of 2017. It was perfect! We were able to unwind from the stresses of holiday and daily life in St. Louis. Hiking and home style restaurants were nearby. Very relaxing and our host was lovely. We will be back!
Our goal was to find a secluded and romantic destination for New Year's Eve. WOW, did we find it! The moment we entered and met Ruth we knew this was going to be a great stay. We stayed in the Scarlett Hideway room and enjoyed the huge jacuzzi tub, fireplace and dual showers. This was exactly what parents with four very busy children needed for our rare night away. Ruth prepared our four course dinner and it could not have been any more perfect. The next morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast as well. We enjoyed our conversations and time spent with Ruth and her beautiful treasure. We will definitely be returning during winery season for another visit. Thank you for going above and beyond to make our stay perfect. We cannot wait to see you again, Ruth!
The stay at the Old Caledonian Bed and Breakfast was perfect from the moment you entered the historic home with its fire blazing to the soft, triple-sheeted beds to the incredible six-course dinner made by Chef Jon. Penny and Jon were warm and gracious hosts providing stories of the history of both the Inn and the town of Caledonia making the stay very memorable. We will definitely return and recommend this hidden gem to many. The only suggestion I have is to bring a bigger pair of pants after you enjoy the delicious food that comes from Jon's kitchen!
The Old Caledonian Bed & Breakfast was such a treat for my husband and I. We met a lovely couple where we shared a wonderful breakfast and conversation. The rooms are very nice and spacious. I really want to know what type of mattress is on the bed - I have never had such a comfortable rest. The owners were very accommodating and have really created such a beautiful place inside and out. We have been telling all of our friends about it.
Thank you,All Very Much for the ride,my b/f and I enjoy it very much,Kyle was excellent trail guide,Tim was excellent to,for demonstrating to guide the horses,I have experience my b/f did not.thanks u christina mazurkiewicz and Greg Duquesne.
We were here for four nights. It was fabulous!! Jon and Penny are amazing hosts. The food was outstanding, beyond delicious. Jon is an awesome chef. All of the breakfasts were delicious and bountiful (loved the Bonny Cakes). Make sure to go for the dinner option, better than any first class restaurant. The rooms are unique and spotless. The Civil War history in the area is plentiful. A perfect escape, go there!
My wife and I stayed at the Old Caledonian during a week-long antiquing trip. The home is fantastic and the grounds look wonderful (we arrived late and didn't get to enjoy the gazebo). Jon prepared a wonderful tea and snack for us after we arrived and we really enjoyed getting to know him. The room was great and the entire place was spotless. The bedding was so comfortable I don't believe I moved an inch all night. Breakfast was fantiastic! We had the "Bonnie Cakes" and his home cured bacon. If you stay here make sure to ask him to talk of his time spent as a cook in Antarctica. In the morning we got to meet Penny and she was delightful to speak with and we couldn't have enjoyed our stay with them more. Hopefully next time we will be there early enough to talk more. We are also considering renewing our vows there in the future as well. Next time we will also ask to have dinner at the Inn, I cannot wait to see what he will make. If you go but sure to go across the street to the Mercantile, there are antiques that we had never seen before. It is still operating and was truly amazing to spend time in. Thanks again Jon and Penny!
My husband enjoyed a great stay at the Plain & Fancy B&B over the weekend. The room was very nice and clean. The breakfast was delicious, both mornings. The jacuzzi outside was soooo relaxing overlooking a creek. We would definitely help stay again!
Our room was very nice, but the food was even better! My husband and I had the private dinner and would recommend it to anyone! Excellent homemade breakfast was served around 9 am. Would recommend to anyone!
I was looking for a quick overnight escape for my wife and I. Found this place in Caledonia, Missouri (had never heard of). We thought, "what the hell, how bad can it be?" The first thing we saw upon arrival was the quirky little town of Caledonia. It was really kind of cool and funky. The B and B itself was wonderful. Beautiful old mansion on gorgeous property(even in winter). John and Penny were super friendly and delightful hosts. The rooms are really exceptional and the bed was like a cloud. To top it all off, it turns out that John is an amazing chef and the food was awesome. We definitely will return and recommend it highly.
This was our second visit to this beautiful house built in 1849. Innkeepers Penny and Jon are amazing hosts, ensuring our ultimate comfort. The house and our room was beautiful and spotless, very comfortable bed. The breakfasts by Chef Jon were once again, the best that we have ever had at a B&B. His signature dish, Scotch eggs, was fantastic. Teatime with homemade scones, cucumber and cream cheese finger sandwiches, and Scotch butter cookies, along with a choice of gourmet teas was delicious. Breakfast on the second day, "Caledonia Benedict", made with Jon's homemade sausage was amazing. The grounds are enchanting, we spent some time in the gazebo, taking in the beautiful grounds with many birds, and a koi pond. Lots of beautiful red cardinals here. The area is steeped in Civil War history and great wineries. This was a most memorable stay. We'll keep coming back here....
I recently enjoyed a relaxing and delightful night's stay at The Old Caledonian. Jon and Penny are amazing hosts and they couldn't have been more welcoming. My night's stay in the Carolina Room was a real treat. The bed linens were so soft and comfortable. I had a great night's sleep! Jon is a talented and creative chef. Each meal was so delicious and beautifully presented. If you have the opportunity, definitely take advantage of stopping by The Old Caledonian. It's a beautiful retreat from the business of everyday life.
We loved our stay in Scarlett's Hideaway for our 10th Anniversary! The room was spacious, had a lovely view of the creek, easy assess to the patios and jazuzzi, and came with a hot tub and fireplace, so great for a cold night! Ruth was a wonderful host, making us feel so welcome with a clean room, a delicious breakfast, and very friendly hospitality! We can't wait to come back during the springtime to really enjoy all the State Parks and attractions in the area! 5 stars for sure!!!!
Everything was wonderful! This was our first time staying so I'm not sure if all the rooms have the same pillows and mattresses. But that was our only issue. Both were very hard and not very comfortable. But that's just our preference. We like softer beds and pillows. Aside from that everything was outstanding! The food is amazing. Its so peaceful and beautiful there. The hot tub on the deck is really nice and private and overlooks the land. Everything is so relaxed and homey. Ruth is so sweet! Horse back riding was so much fun and the prices are great. We were very happy with all the packages we got and the prices. We will definitely be telling others about this place and we will be going back as well.
Our second visit and it has been wonderful each time! Perfect location and absolutely beautiful scenery. Very well kept and the food is delicious. Has everything you need to get away but still feel in touch, if you wish. We stayed in Scarlett's Retreat and loved the fireplace as well as the jacuzzi tub. Well worth the extra few dollars. We will return!
Reminiscent of quiet country inns in Vermont and New Hampshire. Trees were just beginning to turn and the air was crisp when we visited. Our room was spacious and we especially enjoyed the fireplace and jacuzzi. Ruth is an attentive and gracious hostess who also respects her guest's privacy. The inn is nicely decorated and a relaxing place to read or share a glass of wine. Breakfasts were excellent. Don't miss the opportunity to stay in for dinner! It is convenient, very tasty and served in an intimate and peaceful setting.
My husband and I stayed there to celebrate our 20th anniversary. It was beautiful and Ruth was very sweet. The food was excellent! We ordered the romantic dinner for two and it was worth it! I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
We stayed with Twelve Mile Creek Emporium and LOVED it! The atmosphere was outstanding. The friendliness and fun loving place. Very comfortable and clean. Felt like home. The food was awesome. No fancy stuff. All down home cooking. It was the most amazing time ever!. Anything we asked for was there. The staff went out of their way to please us. We will be back!!
Love the pool and gazebo. Recommend massage and horseback riding. Breakfast was tasty and loved the peace and quiet. Can borrow books and movies for your stay. Close to town and parks.
Jon and Penny are such hospitable innkeepers! The guest rooms are huge and filled with modern amenities while staying true to their historical roots. The beds and pillows are the most comfortable I have ever experienced! The area is rich in history and The Old Caledonian B&B is the crown jewel of the town. Afternoon tea was perfect in every way and the breakfasts are out of this world. Just what you would expect from a former executive chef. There are many lovely outdoor areas to wander through on the property. We will definitely be going back to visit!
