Old Caledonian Bed & Breakfast

Who We Are

In 1849, a man named Elijah Starr Ruggles built a home in the charming Village of Caledonia — a place full of beauty and tied to Scottish roots. Through the years, the Antebellum Era house stood strong, housing countless cherished moments. Today, run by innkeepers Michael and Frank, the same well-maintained structure is on the United States Register of Historic Places and operates as the Old Caledonian Bed & Breakfast. Just an 80-mile drive from St. Louis, you’ll find yourself waking to roosters crowing and the smell of a delicious, homemade breakfast drifting to your elegant bedroom. Step down our antique stairway and admire the story of Caledonia told on our walls. Take a seat in one of our sitting rooms, or stroll through our scenic grounds — every square foot of the property is yours to explore! We’re here to provide a perfect destination for a weekend getaway, and we hope you’ll join us.
