Overview

About the property

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!

cosy and quaint with privacy and relaxing area

  • 4 of 5

I loved this place, very private but close to Steeleville to get supplies. I loved your visit from the puppies. I have older eyes now and only wished for more light to do my reading and crafts. thank you so much for sharing your home with us, Jill Pagenkopf.

Float trip weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

My hubby and I stayed here with 2 other couples for a float weekend. Elaine was helpful and patient waiting for us to get our duckies in a row to make the reservation. The house itself is really neat and full of history. During our first few hours, we were already discussing when we might return! It is so peaceful and surrounded by nature. A 1/4 mile walk gets you to the river (or a 2 minute drive!) Their neighbors Tracy and Crystal got us set up with floating. We met them, they drove us to the drop spot and met us when we returned. They were very accommodating and made our experience a great one! The one and only minor issue we had was that the beds are hard and uncomfortable.

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun, the cabin was clean and had everything we needed, the kids loved the slumber party in the bunk room with parents, we saw lots of wildlife, and the unplugged atmosphere made everyone connect, share stories, play games and be creative. Shared in a couple of pinterest Fails around the campfire which only adds to the memories. Having front door service for our float was amazing, they were prompt, courteous and made things easy. Thank you!
