A small cabin with a mini-fridge, AC, microwave, Roku TV and toaster oven/coffee pot combo set in the middle of a 6.64 acre working farm. Located in Spanish Lake where the rivers meet. We have a neighbor who provides horseback riding lessons if you like. Columbia Bottom is a short drive or bike ride and there you will find hiking, fishing and more nature watching. Spanish Lake also has historic sites to explore and is soon to be home of the St Louis Zoo WildCare Park. Please be sure to bring your own towels for the shower house. 

During the week we do have workers on the property helping us grow food for the community.

It was a gem of a find in the area. Very unique and comfortable. She had everything you could want or need. I even brought my own electric kettle because I enjoy hot tea. Then realized she had one in the cottage. Extremely peaceful and cozy. The outdoor shower was awesome on a cool morning. This place should be an inspiration to many on how to create and maintain a rental cottage.

Wonderful place to stay. Perfect balance between camp and interior comforts. Loved the grounds, the idea behind the farm, the people and peace and quiet. Hosts are well informed and very helpful in making me fell at home.

The place is BEAUTIFUL. We really loved the bathhouse with the composting toilet. And listening to the chickens in the morning while we cooked and ate our breakfast. We would recommend this place to everyone, and would be delighted to come back.

Lovely getaway! Janett and Eric were very welcoming and communicative. They were both so friendly with my daughter too. She loved the tour of chickens and goats and playing with the cats and puppy. The cottage was comfortable and the bathroom facilities quite clean for a compost toilet/outdoorish shower.

Overall it was a great experience. The goats and cats are the most friendliest animals. Sleeping quarters were very clean. We had everything we needed. However, paid $10 for firewood. It looked like the owners placed fallen sticks and some leaves on top of the fire pit. In addition, there were 3 young adults hanging around the property and using the outhouse in the morning. I wanted to take a shower but didn’t feel comfortable.

Response from Janett, the Host, on November 5th, 2022

The leaves and sticks were to help you build a fire in the fire pit. We always tell guests to pick from the numerous stacks of cut hardwood around the property. The $10 is for unlimited wood throughout the night. Sorry if that wasn't fully communicated. Since its camping most people are fine with grabbing their own wood from the wood pile. It is a working farm and the youth are part of a program where children with some level of disability get too have on site work experience. They are all harmless and if anyone ever feels uncomfortable I hope they will communicate that with me in the future. We are solving many problems in our community but I never want a guest to feel uncomfortable. Unfortunately I can't read minds so I invite everyone to ask all the questions they need to ensure a pleasant experience. It's a working farm and volunteers and workers will be onsite during the week. Thank you!

Janett is a gracious host and it's hard to believe such a beautiful retreat is hidden right in St Louis, just minutes from everything. Lavendar Cottage is well-appointed with all the amenities required for a comfortable stay.

The Wi-Fi was pretty weak and we couldn't get the TV online. But I was thankful for the outdoor outlet that allowed me to easily recharge my electric car overnight. Janett also gave us some fresh homemade honey before we left!
