Author: , July 27th, 2017

Cabin Collinwood

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!

Meet Me In St. Louis!

When you’re ready for the tourist attractions that make St. Louis unique, a quick ride from The Cabin Collinwood delivers you to the St. Louis Zoo for the day (still free), the Gateway Arch, St. Louis Art Museum, Forest Park and the legendary outdoor Muny Opera, City Museum, Ted Drewe’s famous frozen custard, Crown Candy Kitchen, Anheuser-Busch brewery tours, Grant’s Farm, Six Flags, the historic Soulard neighborhood with its blend of restaurants, the nightlife of University City and Chuck Berry’s “Blueberry Hill” and the St. Louis Walk of Fame, world-famous Italian restaurants in “The Hill” neighborhood, old-town Central West End, or maybe a Cardinals baseball game! These are but a few of the things to see and do, and you’ll find it all in St. Louis!

At day’s end, come “home” to The Cabin Collinwood to relax. You’ll have private bedrooms and semi-private baths, and shared common areas including the kitchen, living room, and two covered porches. See our web site for complete details and booking info.

El Morro RV Park and Cabins

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

El Morro R.V. Park and Cabins is a great get away from the hubbub, psychic noise, and distractions of everyday life for most people. The Park exists as one of the centers of activity for this little community, but more importantly, one can always deepen one’s appreciation for the natural quiet and timeless majesty one finds here. Hike fantastic trails or bike into the Zuni Mountains, or climb El Morro National Monument.

Travel to see the wolves at the Wolf Sanctuary, or birdwatch the many great migrations that pass by or live here. Search for petroglyphs and old pueblo sites, and get in touch with the spirits of the peoples that hunted, lived and prospered here for 12,000 years. These are just a few of the experiences available here that bring one back to oneself. Our cozy, well furnished, modern cabins are an oasis for resting, playing or exploring. Or just pull your rig in, or toss up a tent for a unique and pleasant stay.

El Morro R.V. park boasts the well renowned Ancient Way Cafe, a very popular spot for locals, tourists, and taste seekers. It has an excellent array of breakfast and lunch offerings that fit old standards with southwestern specialties, and the Friday and Saturday night gourmet offerings rival some of the best fusion enticements out there, Spanish meets Navaho meets Old and New World presenta-tions.

The onsite bakery provides an amazing array of sweet tooth goodies that are high quality, from scratch, and original. In an upbeat Cafe,’ with the art of locals festooning the walls, and an exuberant and efficient staff, we are a different kind of outpost than most people expect. We are also Gay owned and managed, and exist in a very supportive community with many other LGBTQ folk.

Other things to do here include a walk of our unique sculpture garden trail. Visit the wellness center called Wave Riders of the Ancient Way (also on the property) to get a psychic reading, or an energy balancing, or to experience other esoteric healing options. Check out the Galleria Carnaval across the street for eye opening art and gifts. Find great shopping for native work at Inscription Rock Trading Center next door, and even more great art, (as well as concerts, festivals, theater productions, workshops, open mic night, and other events ongoing throughout the year} at The Old School Gallery across the street.

There is also the very nice El Morro Market across the street with organic and local goods, as well as specialty goods that you thought you’d never find in the middle of nowhere. Or just sit on your porch and watch the dreamy day go by and have a fire in the fire pit, (weather permitting) and sing campy songs that echo off the mesa wall. So much to do or not do!
