Just two hours south of St. Louis, this elegant Missouri Inn, now doing business as Rachel’s Bed and Breakfast, is known as “the Bolch Mansion.” The origins of the home are blurred by folk lore, family documents, and records from the local assessor office. One account suggest the home was built by Charles and Mathima Bolch, in 1920. The other story is that the home was built before the turn of the century by Mathima's parents. After the death of her precious kid brother her parents moved away to St. Louis and Mathima inherited the family home. The Arts & Craft design of the home suggest an earlier date. We do know the mansion is the oldest standing residence in this quaint little town.
The current owners have taken great strides to restore the elegance and charm of the home’s original construction. Bill and Kelly love entertaining guest with stories passed down from the original owners and their loved ones.
The Bolch Mansion is an Arts and Craft style home that features a warm invitation to all. The restoration has re-established the 9 1/2 foot ceilings throughout the first level and elaborated on the home’s original “tongue and groove” interior. The spacious drawing room is a cordial setting where guests can relax, and friends can assemble to socialize.
There is a strong French influence in the colors and textures found through out the home; Jazz is always the sound of choice.
