Cedarcrest Manor is nestled amongst a cluster of towering cedars and tucked away just up the hill from The Station Restaurant. Built in 1842 by captain Benjamin Clifford, a prominent riverboat captain, Cedarcrest began its life as a plantation home, and quickly became the archetype for a number of houses built in the Mississippi River Valley. It was acquired and renovated in 2005 by Nathalie Pettus, and today, its neoclassic interior, heated Romanesque pool, and stunning views of the Mississippi offer peace, quiet and a restful place to relax and recharge. Rich with amenities, this enchanting Missouri inn is adorned with antiques and features a fireplace in every room.
