                    My husband and I brought our 3 kids--16, 13, and 9--to this awesome house for 3 days of family getaway time. It was perfect! The house is cozy but with plenty of space. We loved the hot tub, exploring along the river, walking the property, grilling on the great deck, cooking in the nice open kitchen, playing games, watching movies in the rain, trying out as much of the kitchy dishware as possible, and just being together in the quiet and dark...away from the big city. It was heavenly.

                    This home was even nicer than the web site portrays. The owners went out of their way to make the home available to one day earlier which was greatly appreciated by us all. A great place for a family get together!

                    This was our 4th time visit. Great place just outside of St Louis. Lots of room. Really no need to bring anything but clothes. Celia and her family have put a great product out. With games to play and a river view. No need to leave if you just want to relax. Will be back next year.

                    We had such a great time at the cabin for our family weekend! It was so comfortable and cozy. We played games and enjoyed the hot tub. We got to see lots of deer and the bald eagles were incredible! It was fabulous winter weekend. We hope to have a summer stay sometime!

                    This cabin was everything it said it was, and more. We spent the weekend with our children (7 of us total, ages 23-53). Wonderful family get-away. The place was so clean and had all the comforts of home. Had a question for the owner upon our arrival and we heard back from her immediately, very nice people to deal with. We truly enjoyed the hot-tub, and they introduced us to a new game that we all loved, "Shut the Box". Had some wonderful R & R time. Would definitely go back if the opportunity arises.

                    My husband and I recently visited this cabin in the woods for some much needed R & R. We found the cabin very cozy and comfortable. The hot tub was by far the best part of the property. The view of the Mississippi from the deck is very impressive. The property is very secluded, so there are no distractions. The cost was a little much for 2 people, but when split between a larger group it would be very reasonable. There was a large jetted tub in the master bathroom that had a note saying it was not working, so that was a little disappointing. Overall, there was very little we would change about the experience.

                    This was a perfect weekend away with two families who are just from the other side of the river. The views out the back were perfect. It was a secluded place that served as a wonderful place to recharge our batteries.

                    We went for a fun girls weekend away from everything and had a wonderful time! Beautiful cabin, very clean, gracious hosts, wildlife and nature everywhere. Close enough to suburbs so we could shop and go to restaurants but we were able to go back to the cabin and feel like we were hundreds of miles away from everything. I would recommend this cabin to everyone and will definitely go again. A wonderful value and great experience.

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: We bought this wonderful log home as our family get-away, close to home, about 10 years ago. We have so many wonderful family memories with our kids growing up, adventures out on the river (swimming, boating, waterskiing), entertaining friends... Our kids are now grown and we were not using our lovely cabin as much, so we decided to share it with other people so that they can create and enjoy fun memories of vacations as well. If you want a peaceful setting, winter or summer, this is it! Nature surrounds the cabin and is fun to watch from the deck. Bald Eagles and Golden eagles abound Dec-Feb! Deer visit year-round. Fishing is fun in the summer too....or just relax and barbeque on the deck with the fabulous view.

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Louis:
                  We love the cabin because while it is secluded, peaceful, and off the beaten path, it is only 15 minutes to get to grocery stores/shopping/entertainment.
