RELAX ON THE VERANDA: Grab a seat, put your feet up and relax. No rush hour, or ten lane superhighway noise. Plenty of owls, Turkey, and the roar of the river. Yet 45 minutes away, and your in St Louis!
EXPERIENCE THE PARANORMAL:: During the day, or at night. Don't be surprised when something happens. We don't have to wait till dark, the spirits will come out regardless day or night! We'll let you use our gear, and or bring your own! But you have to be patient, keep in mind you are a stranger in there house-give them a chance to warm up and trust you. Sitting silently saying nothing, will do nothing but waste your time!!! Tell them about yourself, it will work if your patient.

Nature Hike, 5 minutes up highway B, towards Hillsboro:
You should have on comfortable shoes, or boots. This trail can get a little steep. Therefore if you've have knee or ankle issues go slow. But even the 1st 20 minutes is enough to be worth the effort. Typically it's free of crowds in the morning. It takes about an hour to complete. Give us your water bottles, and we will fill with ice cold filtered, well water. Safe, filtered, and chemical free.
