Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:
Built log-by-log in 1982 by the proprietor’s late father, The Cabin Collinwood guesthouse is a country home with modern amenities! From its dovetail corners and creaky wood floors, to the natural wildlife and birds—the effect is that of living in a tree-house!
Nestled in the heart of the countryside a quick 35-mile drive from downtown St. Louis via I-55, The Cabin Collinwood is perfectly located for weekend breaks or leisurely mid-week getaways, with nearby antique & flea markets, shopping, wineries, country adventures, fishing, rivers and floating, swimming, camping, hiking, or perhaps a quick trip south to historic St. Genevieve. Twenty minutes away, you’ll find the quaint Mississippi River town of Kimmswick, replete with specialty shops, restaurants, and festivals that draw people from all over the country and region.
A little closer—the “Twin Cities” of Festus and Crystal City, where you’ll find eateries, pharmacies, grocery stores, banks/ATM’s, and “Richard’s Fresh Produce” market. Don’t forget to check out “Main & Mill” for a great burger and some of their micro-brewery craft beers! And just under five miles to the west: a stop at Wild Sun Winery where you’ll experience some of Missouri’s finest wines as part of your Jefferson County memories!
Get away from everything for that hike in the woods in some of the best parks in the nation, visit nearby rivers, relax with a huge library of in-house movies, and take some great naps! If you can’t quite “cut the cord” during your stay, our free Wi-Fi will help to keep you connected. The Cabin Collinwood is all about casual comfort on a heavily-wooded lot in a small private subdivision. It’s a great place to experience both country and city living whether you head south to get even further away from it all (and to some great historic areas), or head to the city for all that St. Louis has to offer! Should you wish, we’ll even help plan your itinerary start to finish!
