Welcome to the Old Caledonian Bed & Breakfast, located just 80 minutes south of St. Louis in the Village of Caledonia, Missouri.

The Old Caledonian B&B is in the National Register of Historic places, and is housed in the Ruggles-Evans-Dent House built in 1849. We offer vintage luxury, outstanding vegan cuisine, spa and wellness amenities, and incredible local destinations to make your stay a memorable experience for which we hope you will wish to return again and again.

Each guest room has a private bath, incredible, top-of-the-line linens and bedding, DirecTV, and free Wi-Fi. There are soothing sound generators and aromatherapy misters in each room, as well. There is also a sauna and yoga studio free for our guests’ use.

The house, with its beautifully preserved brick and woodwork, makes for a lovely setting to enjoy the spacious seating areas, dining room and library. Our four acres of manicured grounds are a great escape from life’s hustle and bustle. Our stately gazebo, peaceful koi pond, private patio and lovely gardens are country relaxation at its finest.

Our amazing plant-based breakfasts, included in your stay, are prepared by one of our owners who was an executive chef for 25 years. Also, our afternoon teatime, served between 4 p.m.-6 p.m. is included, and features a wide selection of teas and an assortment of sweet and savory treats, all served on antique china. We can also prepare three-course vegan dinners by prior arrangement, which win raves from our guests. Please see our website for more info, and call or email to arrange your dinner. We also offer a great selection of wine and beer.

We are located right on Caledonia’s Main Street, and within a short drive of several of Missouri’s most popular state parks, historic sites and attractions including Johnson Shut-Ins State Park, Elephant Rocks State Park, Washington State Park and the Battle of Pilot Knob Historic Site. We also have opportunities for great antiquing in our immediate area.

Whether it’s a quick weekend getaway or a quiet, relaxing retreat, we here at the Old Caledonian Bed & Breakfast are looking forward to having you as our guests. Please check out our website, read our outstanding reviews and come visit us here in Caledonia. Cheers!
