There is no 'through' access. Logan University is across the street, which offers beautiful additional hiking and riding trails trails.
We often have guests who are coming to Washington University, Barnes Jewish Medical Centers, for treatment or surgery, or professionals of all professions, who are visiting for various reasons, and to whom privacy, peace and quiet are important. Getting AroundWe are one mile from the main expressway which will take you anywhere you want to go, including, Barnes Jewish Hospital, Missouri Botanical Gardens, Art, History, & Science Museums, downtown St. Louis, the airports, and shopping. We are approximately 20 miles from the Arch downtown. There are wonderful restaurants within 1 mile, ample shopping, movies and night time entertainment, as well. Other Things to NoteThe apartment is attached to the main home, so you share an entrance into the main home in order to get to the apartment.
There are indoor cats and a dog in and around the home. There are horses in the stables, as well as working feral kitties.
The pool is typically open from June through September. The pool was converted to a 'Hybrid-Natural' Pool with waterfall. This means that the pool uses a combination of 'nature' and chemicals to keep it clean. However, it does not 'look' like a typical hotel pool, it looks more like a 'natural swimming pond'. When open, the swimming pool is tested daily to be sure the water is free of any harmful bacteria as well as in perfect balance! Ask me more about when you arrive!
The Hot Tub is available year round.
