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.

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!

Janett's farmstead is beautiful and vibrant, with so many varieties of food and flora. Loved meeting the goats and cats, sitting by the small pond for dinner, and feeling like we were out in the country, yet still close to the city. Would have loved to spend more time there.

One of my favorite stays ever. We were a little confused how to get to the property at first, but when we pulled in we were immediately impressed. The farm alone is immaculate and you can tell the amount of work put into it. We enjoyed being able to pick a few blackberries which were absolutely delicious. The cottage is simple yet has everything you could need and more. The bathhouse was definitely one of the best features and we have thought about it every day. We stayed one night and showered three times just because it was so peaceful. Janett and Eric were incredible hosts and we loved our short chats. If you can stay here, don’t hesitate! You will not regret it.

I can't speak highly enough about this slice of heaven we found in the middle of America off the Mississippi River. Rustic Roots (RR) and its Lavender Cottage was just what my husband and I needed to decompress and unwind from the daily grind. This cozy retreat tucked away in Spanish Lake offered tranquility, serenity and relaxation. Our hosts, Janett and Eric, were gracious and attentive to the smallest of details during our stay. Farm animals , gardens and the bee hives gave us a connection to Mother Earth in all of her natural beauty. We were fortunate enough to be there when RR was hosting a summer foraging class...just one more extra thing to make our stay even more enjoyable. We can't wait to come back and do it all over again! We plan on making it a seasonal trip! Janett and Eric are truly dedicated to the community they live in and serve. Kudos to them!!

Janett's place is the perfect place to stay outside of St. Louis! The farm was wonderful and the animals were very sweet. Janett was very responsive during my stay. The guest house was very clean and comfortable. Highly recommend!

I loved staying at the Lavender Cottage! The animals were all so friendly, including the cats and the goats! The outhouse had warm shower water and was a wonderful experience. The cottage itself was comfortable and cozy. Would definitely stay here again! I wish we had more time to explore the grounds because it was so cool!
