Beautiful place

Host was super welcoming. Greeted us the a dozen farm fresh eggs. Invited us walk around his beautiful property complete with chickens, fishing pond, and solar panels. We catch a large bluegill fish in the pond which we released. We visited the fresh market down the street and very much enjoyed our stay.

Great host…we’ll be back

Gracious and welcoming hosts. Beautiful property. Fresh eggs from their hens were delicious. Many outdoor activities and STL are nearby. We plan to come back again in the future.

Just Like Staying with Family

I felt so welcomed and safe here. Very lovely place to stay and the pond was super relaxing after a day of driving. Sure hope my travels bring me back here again sometime.

Beautiful spot

Enjoyed the quiet location, seeing the beehives and our discussion on bees. Loved the pond and the fishing. A farm market and bakery was less then 1/2 mile walk.

Great Small Farm near STL

K7DZE have a great place to RV stay SE of St. Louis (STL). We shared bee lore from Florida. Learned much to improve our bee keeping. Their gift of a dozen eggs from their chickens was a great treat. Local area Tractor Supply helped on some upgrades. Nearby Eckerts, a farm store, has some great buys. A light rail station is nearby for the hour ride in to STL. With all this, there's still allot of rolling cornfields and farms. Beautiful.

Beautiful

This is a beautiful property. We were disappointed we were only there for one night and couldn't fully enjoy it all. We would have loved to check out the little lake and do some fishing. We did see lots of lightning bugs and the kids enjoyed running in thr field chasing and trying to catch them. We will definitely stay here again if we are back in the area.

You'll regret not staying here

Had such an amazing time with our host and his wife that we extended our stay with an additional visit. You can't ask to meet better people, they are and absolute delight to be around. The farm fresh eggs are great, we learned about bee farming as well as chicken farming. It was so nice to walk around the open property and relax on the dock by the lake. 10/10 we would stay here a million times over if we could, we cannot express or tell you how wonderful this place is, and when you reach the dragon the adventure begins. its also only 25 mins away from st louis.

Breath taking!!

Absolutely amazing hosts and homestead! Both hosts are amazing people and super helpful with everything. They gave us amazing food references to eat at locally and took us fishing. They were generous enough to let us use some fishing poles. The homestead is very peaceful and relaxing. Differently try the fresh eggs!
