About Jerry Eulentrop

My wife and I, along with our 6 children, live year-round right next door to this property. I grew up enjoying the recreational benefits of the river and we were able to purchase our current residence in 2006 and moved to our newly constructed home in 2010.

Jerry Eulentrop purchased this cabin in 1954

Why Jerry Eulentrop chose Winfield

My father bought the property in 1954 and while our permanent home was in the northwest suburbs of St. Louis I grew up boating, skiing and fishing on the river. There is much history and many great stories (many actually true!) and when you come stay be sure to ask me for a few. In Linus's 60 years on this part of the river he became much beloved (by most anyway) and certainly left his mark on and in the river (as evidenced by a truck that is still sitting at the bottom of the river). We hope you'll forge indelible and fond memories as we share a place that holds innumerable memories for us.

What makes this cabin unique

There is something captivatingly tranquil about a large majestic body of water gently flowing by. It allows you to release a huge sigh, relax and let the cares of the world roll off. So, kick off your shoes and relax, or go out and cut loose on any of the many recreational activities the river affords. But come and enjoy a good time at Linus's Clubhouse!

Great river retreat!

  • 5 of 5

There's nothing more relaxing than natural flowing water! This is without a doubt the perfect place to enjoy the Mississippi River. It has every amenity you could possibly want and more in a very quiet location. We hope to return sometime soon!

HAD TO COME BACK

This was our second time at the clubhouse and although the weather wasn't the best, we still enjoyed our stay. We hope to be back a couple of times in 2018! Chris & John

EXCELLENT !!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice, clean and comfortable, and well equipped. The view of the Mississippi kept us on the porch from sunrise to sunset both days. Plenty of peace and quiet, good conversation, and games of checkers. Fortunately, with enough whining, my wife let me win a few games. We saw eagles and hummingbirds and watching the barges was fascinating. The owners are very accommodating and welcoming. Linus's clubhouse is river life at its best, and we hope to come back. Thanks !

A wonderful week on the river!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were looking for something on the water that was quiet and relaxing for our first vacation without children in TWELVE YEARS! Linus' Cabin fit the bill perfectly and we are so very happy with our stay; in fact we hope to make this an annual trip for just us. The cabin interior is nicely updated, a new kitchen and the most comfortable king-sized bed we've ever slept in. The view is beautiful and we spent most of our time on the jumbo-sized covered porch just reading and watching the barges come by (my husband found a website that identifies the barges and where they are on the Mississippi which was fascinating for him). We enjoyed watching the heron who did his fishing right in front of the house and laughed at the hummingbird that persistently tried to get nectar from a basket of artificial flowers!

Jerry & Wendy were terrific hosts and clearly put some thought into what their guests might enjoy - we loved the homemade chocolate chip cookies, we built puzzles, played Yahtzee and listening to their children practice violin was a treat! However, our favorite "bonus" was Chloe, their chocolate lab. She trotted over to meet us our first day and over the week we were there she'd stop by for a nap on the porch while we were relaxing. She added a sweet touch to our stay and made us smile - all the fun of a dog without having to take care of a dog! We tried Anchors for dinner on two nights (husband liked the steak) and one day we took a chance and drove to O'Fallon to try Thai Kitchen - we recommend it! There is a good-sized grocery store nearby for meals in.

The covered porch had a table, chairs and a fan; our only suggestion is maybe adding a chaise or two to the deck for stretching out? The wi-fi was spotty and we never were able to get connected, so used our plan instead. Not a big deal but thought we'd mention it. Looking forward to a return trip next summer!

Wonderful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week here on the river. The house is very nice, clean and comfortable. All of the comforts of home in a beautiful vacation rental. Owners are very nice and helpful and even the neighbors were very friendly. The owners' dog even visited us - she was a sweetheart. The location is perfect in our opinion - right on the river, very quiet, but close to St. Charles and St. Louis so there is a lot to do. We highly recommend this place and we hope to be able to visit again soon!

A beautiful spot on the Mississippi immediately south of the Winfield Lock and Dam #25 with great fishing and boating, or just relaxing. Winters include tremendous opportunities to watch the eagles with direct views to an eagle sanctuary. Views of the Illinois bluffs change with the seasons, but come alive vibrantly with an explosion of autumn colors.
