Our place is unique because it serves a relaxing, private, stay in the heart of the country. Off Highway 79, down a private gravel road, sits our lodge, as private as can be, no neighbors or cars passing through. Nestled in the heart of the Mississippi river bottoms, our B&B is perfectly located for the weekend break or a leisurely mid-week holiday. Located 30 minutes away from downtown St. Louis and attractions such as Cardinal baseball, Science Center, Delmar Loop, St. Louis Arch, and many more! Guests will be open to go fishing, paddle boating, and swimming in our lake, which also has a sanded beach. We also offer other amenities like a basketball court, a shaded concrete relaxing area, grills, fire pit, walking trails, dog kennels, and a large deck overlooking the fields and lake. Inside, we offer a wood burning fireplace, recliners overlooking the field and lake, two large couches, two 80" flat screen TVs, a bar, a large dining table, coffee maker, and the kitchen. The bed and breakfast is based in our home. During your stay, we will be here the whole time. Each listing is for one room. Each room is 119 per night. So if you need more than one room to complete your stay, book as many as you need, but make sure the dates are all available. Thanks!!!

About Jack Caswell
This vacation spot is ran by my daughter and I. We live here in the lodge and maintain the property daily.
Jack Caswell purchased this House in 1979
What makes this House unique
This 60 acre property located in the Mississippi river bottoms was purchased by our grandfather in 1979. He wanted a place of his own for his family to hunt, fish, and enjoy the outdoors. Eventually, the lodge was built in 1996 as a premier private waterfowl hunting facility during the months of November through January. We still operate as a full service hunting lodge during the winter months.

Beautiful, private B&B
We were traveling home from a vacation to the southwest with our dog. Property sits on wooded acreage that includes a beautiful lodge with a large pond. Very peaceful and quiet setting. Appropriate for a group, family or couple. Owner lives at the lodge and is attentive to any needs that may arise. Outdoors is a well-maintained yard and pond that provides room for activities, taking in the view or just taking walks. Indoors reveals a rustic hunting lodge with all the modern amenities of home. We stayed in an upstairs room with king bed, TV and bathroom with shower. Ceiling fan and air conditioner provided a good night’s sleep. Owner provided coffee and breakfast in the morning and couldn’t have been nicer. He is available but not intrusive. Convenient to O’Fallon for great restaurants, gas and groceries.
My husband & I were looking for a place to go and relax for a coupme days so we reserved a room here at Prairie Marsh and couldn't of been happier we did. Jack was an awesome host who went above and beyond to make us feel at home. We WILL be back and hopefully the weather is better. Thank you again so much.
Thank You hope too see you when the weather gets better !!! Thanks again for the stay.
Absolutely beautiful and relaxing place to be.
Awesome host. Very hospitable and friendly. Would definitely go again. My dog loved it and the place was extremely pet friendly. He even let me have my guinea pigs there.
Thank You Sarah, for the great review. It was our pleasure to have you stay with us. Vest wishes. Hope too see you again.
The Caswell's, Jack and Jack Sr. went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and to accommodate every need. Our dog loved it too!
Thank You safe travels.
Gorgeous property and wonderful people!
First of all, do not be wary due to a lack of reviews as this is a new listing. It's absolutely beautiful. The lake is great for fishing and swimming. Built as a hunting lodge, the bedrooms are small and filled with twin beds, but that just means it's an even better value, since you can put a whole family in one room without having to share a bed. The common areas are very spacious, and the deck overlooks the lake. The owners live on the property and are very friendly and accommodating. After only three nights, we feel like it's our second home. Many thanks to Jack and Courtney, we hope to be back soon!
Thanks so much for everything Im sure you're review of the place will help. So nice to have you and your family stay with us. Thanks again safe travels !!!
Beautiful lodge and awesome property view!
The lodge as well as the property are well maintained. The lake is very clean and beautiful! My family and I had just a short stay but really enjoyed our visit. You can still hear the traffic from Hwy 79 but it isn't bad. The area is secluded and private but less than 10 minutes from local stores, which worked out great! We brought our 3 pups with us and they had a blast in the lake and the property. Jack and Courtney were great hosts and made us feel like family.
Jack helped us BBQ and had great snacks for our stay.
We were so exhausted from our lake time and fresh air that we missed out on the great bonfire he made one evening! We loved looking at the history of the lodge and all the great pictures Jack has accumulated over the years. We will definitely be back!
