Our family of six loves to travel, and when we discovered the vacation home option instead of hotels, we knew we wanted a rental property of our own to share with others. We hope our cottages enhance your vacation like so many homes have done for us. We love meeting and talking with people from all over, so please feel free to give us a call!- Audrey and Matt
Audrey and Matt purchased this house in 2012
We've always loved Old Town St. Charles because of its charm, fun atmosphere, and historic architecture. When we saw this little brick house for sale we thought it was just perfect and would be a way for us to enjoy the area even more and let other people experience it too.
With everything in walking distance, we love that we don't have to pile everyone into the car when we want to go eat, shop, or play. The many festivities and events happening all year round, give the whole family something to enjoy.
"We rented all 3 properties for my daughter's wedding in St. Charles. We had plenty of space for everyone and they were all so impressed with the homes. The homes were meticulously kept, and the furnishings were lovely. We were right in the middle of the historic district with shops and restaurants on our doorstep. The owners had very thoughtfully provided an array of snacks and menus for local restaurants. Although we did not make use of them, there were strollers, play pens, bouncy seats, ice chests. Upstairs were a few toys for younger children, wii games and board games for the whole family. I don't think you could find a better place to spend a few days--or longer. We are already planning a return visit with children and grandchildren. And we will most certainly be staying in the same property. It is a great base for exploring St. Louis and being able to walk locally in St. Charles and along the river. "
We all had a relaxing time and loved, loved the cottage. Very well kept ; would definitely recommend.
We were a group of 5 women that stayed in this lovely home for the weekend. We were all from St. Louis but felt like we really "got away!" We had a full day of activities on Friday and found the house very welcoming and clean when we arrived late afternoon. It's a one minute walk to Main Street where we shopped and popped into a local restaurant for drinks and appetizers. Coffee and snacks provided by the owner were a nice treat early Saturday morning before our walk on the Katy Trail and a day of exploring nearby wineries. A late return Saturday afternoon was followed by more shopping on main street and dinner at a local restaurant . All five of us would recommend this home for a nice getaway. Lots to see and do in the area.
Looks can be deceiving. I had anticipated a small place by the photos but was surprised house large the guest house was when I got here. Spread across three floor there is a lower level with foyer, washer/dryer, full bathroom and bedroom. On the next level (main floor) there is a large living area, nice sized kitchen/dining room, a bedroom and a full bathroom. Upstairs is a large bedroom with two beds. The house was very clean when we arrived. You park behind the house in parking spots (fits about three cars) off an accessway - very convene t to,get in and out from. The backyard area does have a couple seats on the porch. Inside traveller information awaits and there is a selection of coffee for the Keurig. There are also snacks available. The kitchen is has everything except a stove (which was no problem for us). In terms of location, the house is very close to the beautiful historic town of St Charles (must be explored!) where you can tour the many nice shops, museums or rent a bike (unless you have your own) to ride the Katy Trail. If traveling to St Louis it is about 30 minutes and there is freeway access nearby. We loved the house and enjoyed its historic charm and modern comfort. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay
This house was a perfect spot for a 40th bday and girlfriend get together. Everything looked great and very clean when we got there. The Keurig was much appreciated by everyone. We brought a fair amount of our own food for the weekend, planning on only going out to dinner. Mostly food that didn't need to be cooked due to no stove. There was a nice gas grill which we didn't take advantage of due to being mostly vegetarian. The Bella Vino tapas restaurant on Main St had fantastic food and great craft cocktails. Everyone loved that place - highly recommended. We had a spa day at Metro Spa which is a half block away. The Katy Trail along the river was a nice morning walk and we loved all the shops on Main St. Note: Most shops don't open until 1 on Sunday so don't plan a whole day of shopping there. You can wait it out at the charming Picasso Cafe.
Everyone wants to come back. Very nice amenities at the house and Audrey was very attentive and returned my call shortly after I left a message on Saturday morning. We heard the Christmas season is the time to come back for the festivities on Main St.
We had a wonderful time at the guest house. The details the owners have included were excellent from the high end fixtures, snacks, to beverage's and wonderfully soft sheets. Excellent location and parking. Will stay here again. Thank you!
House clean, comfortable, and so close to everything we wanted to do. Easy parking. Comfortable beds. Owner very responsive to our questions. Would certainly stay there again.
