A long history...

The history of this property with its gorgeous views goes back almost 130 years. Originally it was built as a 3story building and was used for several purposes. It served as a home, a general store, a Hotel as well as the post office of Starkenburg. Visitors to the Starkenburg Shrine and Church could count on a place to stay and young men studying at the Church could find room and board here. There was even a hall attached to the building where dances and gatherings took place. Almost 130 years later, Les Lavandes B&B is bringing back most of its original functions, and is now offering a place small garden weddings.





Come and experience this European atmosphere with Richard and Myrta
where Swiss/German, French, Italian and Spanish is spoken fluently.

Les Lavandes is open during the most beautiful seasons of the year, spring and fall. Please contact us directly for your booking requests via email: leslavandesbb@gmail.com or via telephone:573 236-4774
