Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Steelville

Our authentic log cabin was built in the early 1930's and has been newly restored. It is situated on nearly 300 peaceful acres along the Meramec River and has river frontage for you to enjoy. We have easy river access and a small gravel bar. Float trips by canoe or raft may be available by reservation for an additional fee. Bedroom #1 has a queen size bed, antique dresser, and a fireplace. The bunkroom has one full bed, one twin bed, and a set of bunk beds. The back porch dining hall seats 12 people and has plenty of room for games and activities (we have several to choose from or bring your own). There is a TV and VCR/DVD player (we have some movies too), but no cable or internet...PERFECT! The kitchen is stocked too! There is room to pitch a tent (or several for an additional fee)! Relax away from the stress in our quiet getaway and make many new memories. This place is the perfect place to get away from it all and 'rough it' while still enjoying the modern conveniences of home!

Spider Horror

  • 3 of 5

We looked so forward to this get away. The cabin was pretty and old but was not sealed and the land was beautiful. River access was, although through a field on the property, quite a distance from the cabin. The gravel bar needs some cleaning and weeding as well. The cabin could have been cleaner and the coffee pot did not work. Kitchen appliances and dishes were pretty old. Not many bowls for serving food. The fire pit was great and the surrounding land was beautiful. Our 2 small dogs loved being outside not leashed. Our horror began in the evenings when like clock work about 6:00 PM, large black spiders would constantly be running across the floors. We are not afraid of spiders kind of people, but this was ridiculous. Too many spiders to count were killed every night. It became like a horror movie. We would have went somewhere else if I had not already paid for the full 2 nights and the local hotels were full. The owner came by, we told him of this, he just stated that they had just sprayed so he did not know why this was happening. There were so many spiders it became hilarious. The owners dogs also managed to come over, labs, very friendly to people but we had small dogs the big one wanted to fight with. We had to put our dogs inside an evening until theirs were picked up by a neighbor. Never so glad to leave a cabin. We will not be returning to this place. The spiders and lack of sealing the cabin inside with the additional minor irritations make this only a 3 for me.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cabin & the amazing view. Spent the weekend with my 3 kids {19mon, 9yr, 15yr} & husband at the cabin we was needing a NON- electronic weekend as a family to get back to the basics. That exactly what we got:) We loved watching the cows all day even got up super early to watch the fog & cows. Went down to the river & had a wonderful bonfire.

Wonderful family weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was charming. We were celebrating a special occasion and family members traveled from out of state. We had such a great time...lunch by the river,visit the local winery just down the road, fire in the fire pit at night and all of us cooking breakfast together in the kitchen. We shared stories and laughed together. It was such a great relaxing weekend.

Sweet seclusion.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time at the cabin. We wanted peace and quiet and that is what got. The seclusion was wonderful. Spent most of the time relaxing on the porch watching for wildlife and the calves run and play together in the neighboring field.

The cabin is decorated so nice and is very comfortable. It's just a short walk or drive to the river. The town is close and has everything you could need.

Thank you to the Mitchell's for allowing us to stay in their cabin. Enjoyed our visit so much and hope to return someday.
