The SpaceThe cabin was constructed with a 1890's theme.
A step back in time with a few "necessities" like cable TV, microwave, a small (cube) refridgerator and, oh yes and a full bath and running water!!! Guest AccessFor nights under the stars, there is a campfire pit with a grill grate that fits over the fire pit for cooking out, we also have grill baskets, firewood and starter. An old dirt road for a walk in the country. And Honey Creek, once well known for bees, is nearby if you want to explore. Interaction with GuestsPlease let us know when you plan to arrive. Jerry takes great pride in having everything just right. He will greet you on arrival and answer any questions you may have. There is coffee and tea in the cabin and ICE by request at the school house.
Jerry has lived here all of his 70+ years, ask him anything! Oh yes, he is also a docent on the river barge, The Captain Meriwether Lewis, in Brownville so you can ask him anything about that too!
Also, please let us know if you will be staying past the regular check out time of 1PM. The NeighborhoodThe only thing we overlook is a cornfield, a hayfield and a creek. The days and nights are quiet and leisurely. If you would like to try some of our favorites: For home cooked meals try La Portal Mexican Restaurant or Hickory Road BBQ in Auburn. Brownville has the Lyceum, always made from scratch and delicious (check for open times) Summertime is big around here and there is a little bit of everything to do. Check the fliers on the desk, we try to keep it current, and as always, ASK US! Getting AroundWe hope you come by car, bicycle, motorcycle or horseback. There is no public transportion way out here! And BE SURE to follow our directions on how to get here. Two out of three miss it with GPS! Seriously.... Other Things to NoteWe are between Peru (2 miles) and Brownville (6 miles)
It is VERY IMPORTANT that you follow OUR written directions to get here from highway 67 (no other GPS or MapQuest will work correctly)
