The SpaceThis honeymoon suite features a large living room space with a wet bar, and a private bedroom with built in bookshelves and desk area. Queen Bed, a dresser with mirror, and a Highboy dresser. The cedar closet will keep your clothes fresh!
You will be able to close both the door to the floor, and the bedroom door as well.
This works as an entire apartment that is the size of the whole house.
Enjoy an evening in the family room with a fireplace, and a large flat screen 60" TV, video games such as Xbox and Xbox 360, Playstation 2, HDMI hook up with a laptop for internet access and movies and tv shows. Wine and cheese evenings sometimes happen around here!
There are four other rooms upstairs, with built in bookshelves and a lot of books! One bookshelf is in my bedroom, while the other shelf is in a bedroom that will eventually be for singles, with a twin size, lovely canopy bed. That is not quite set up yet... Projects!! The last room is the media/smoking/hangout lounge with an exhaust fan to suck the smoke out and keep it from the rest of the house.
The gas grill on the back patio and large backyard with a small firepit provide a perfect place to barbecue and enjoy the outdoors. We are near a few State parks, so you will see some deer, geese, ducks, bald eagles and hawks and other wildlife. The Endangered Wolf Center nearby offers tours and the World Bird Sanctuary are amazing places to visit and check out the predators in the mammal world and the raptors of the avian world! Guest AccessFull access of the house is available for use. Upstairs full bathroom has a removable shower head with different settings. Basement has a large shower room with two shower heads for an enjoyable shower.
Full use of kitchen and laundry room on first floor for the guests. Feel free to cook in the kitchen or outdoors on the gas grill on the back patio!
Family room space provides entertainment of video games such as Xbox and Xbox 360, Playstation 2, HDMI hook up with large 60 inch flatscreen TV. There is also a fire place downstairs in the family room, great for hanging out in. Second Media Room is also a ventilated Smoking lounge upstairs for guests. Interaction with GuestsYour interaction with me as a host depends on what you request. I understand peoples desire for privacy and space while travelling. You may also wish to hang out with me and enjoy a fun evening of drinks in the family room or upstairs in the media/smoking lounge.

I like to hang out in the upstairs Media/smoking lounge with friends myself and you're more than welcome to join me for social interaction if you desire, perhaps with some wine and cheese, and some great conversations!

The NeighborhoodMy home is very close to the Babler State and Castle Wood State Parks which has the Meramec River running through it and sand beach. Great hang out spot to cool off and swim in the hot the summer months.

This location is about 30 minutes from St. Louis City and Saint Charles, which features many cool bars and places to eat. There are lots of smaller breweries as well as Busch Beer headquarters in St. Louis all of which offer tours! About an hour west are the Meramec Caverns, which are a stunning cave system to explore (and used by famous outlaws like Jesse James), and float trips down the Meramec River are so much fun!!.
Here's a website of all the nearby things to locally do in Ballwin:
(URL HIDDEN) Getting AroundThe house is located a few minutes walk from bus stations, and you can use the public bus and train system to explore greater Saint Louis!!
The buses stop on Manchester Road and on New Ballwin Road, right outside the neighborhood, for one route, and on Reinke and Manchester Roads for another route. Other Things to NoteThe Air BnB I run is more of a Bed and Breakfast type of home. I have multiple rooms open to different guest at times, so during your stay I may have other guests here.
I have two cats at my home, who get free reign of my house. They are very well behaved, my female, Neela, is very shy and mostly like you won't see her, and my male cat, Stormaggedon, Dark Lord of All, loves making new friends and being playful and will be very curious about you. However, they will not go into your bedroom, and will stay mostly in the main parts of the house.
