About Celia Homsher

We bought this wonderful log home as our family get-away, close to home, about 10 years ago. We have so many wonderful family memories with our kids growing up, adventures out on the river (swimming, boating, waterskiing), entertaining friends... Our kids are now grown and we were not using our lovely cabin as much, so we decided to share it with other people so that they can create and enjoy fun memories of vacations as well. If you want a peaceful setting, winter or summer, this is it! Nature surrounds the cabin and is fun to watch from the deck. Bald Eagles and Golden eagles abound Dec-Feb! Deer visit year-round. Fishing is fun in the summer too....or just relax and barbeque on the deck with the fabulous view.

Celia Homsher purchased this house in 2000

Why Celia Homsher chose St. Charles

We love the cabin because while it is secluded, peaceful, and off the beaten path, it is only 15 minutes to get to grocery stores/shopping/entertainment.

The Perfect Christmas

  • 5 of 5
When the family member who had hosted our holiday get-togethers for the past three decades decided she was no longer able to do it I began looking for a place where the family could comfortably gather for a stress-free holiday get together.
This cabin is EXACTLY what I was looking for! It was the perfect size for our large family (16) to gather and enjoy quality time together as we prepared a family holiday meal in the wonderfully equipped, spacious kitchen. It was a cook's dream!
Outside, nature was readily available for exploring to those looking for something to do. There were beautiful, friendly deer to meet us as we arrived. The mighty Mississippi River is a short distance away and can be seen from the beautifully maintained cedar deck. My elderly uncle truly enjoyed watching the barges on the river! There were plenty of woods for my teenage sons and niece to explore. They loved having so much space to roam in and no neighbors to be seen. There were definitely no cries of "I'm bored"!
After dinner, the whole family was able to relax and spend a great evening together without feeling rushed or cramped. Those who did not want to hang out at the beautiful bar in the sun room helped themselves to the board games or one of the several cable-equipped televisions or chose from several DVDs. This cabin had absolutely everything we could want. All we had to supply was food. In over twenty years of renting vacation homes, I have never been more satisfied! This will be our family's Christmas tradition for years to come! Thank you for making it available!
I read the bad review from a prior renter. I saw absolutely no evidence to suggest anything that was in that review. Celia has put so much work into this place and was extremely easy to work with. I can't wait to visit again. My sister and I plan to bring her grandkids for a weekend sometime this winter. Can only imagine how beautiful the place will be in the snow!

Beautiful place, responsive owner

  • 5 of 5
It was gray, raining and gloomy during most of our weekend and the view was still spectacular - even with bare winter trees and frost on the deck, the sight of fog rolling along the river was amazing. When the clouds broke our last day, we got fabulous photos of the sunrise reflecting off the water. The interior of the cabin is cozy and comfortable and the kitchen well-equipped. Two minor dings - the hot water smelled a bit "rusty" to us and the chain on the gate leading in was covered in mud (again, it was rainy). We purchased a super cheap pair of rubber gloves for dealing with the gate and that worked very well, so you might want to consider that. The owner was gracious and swift with her communication and refunded our security deposit very quickly. We are planning to go again in the spring! (Bonus, lots of wildlife including deer, eagle, what looked like a flock of wild turkeys, an owl and ducks).

awesome place

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just love this cabin. It is clean and comfortable, with lot of space to spread out between the great room and the large deck over looking the river. We have made this our yearly retreat. I highly recommend this cabin, and close to St. Louis for us is a plus.

Great weekend

This was our second time booking the location and just like the first, we had a great time. The owners take excellent care of the location. For those wishing a nice quiet place to get away for a weekend or longer, I would highly recommend.

Marvelous, Peaceful Family Meeting Place

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was a wonderful place for our family to gather and enjoy a few relaxing days. The setting was just beautiful -- so tranquil and relaxing. Sitting out on the back deck was therapeutic -- couldn't believe how quiet it was! We actually went the entire weekend without turning on the TV. Just enjoyed the outdoor setting and visiting with family. Celia and Jeff were very helpful and accommodating. At one point, we texted with a question and heard back immediately with the answer. It was obvious they work hard to make the cabin as pleasing to their guests as possible. The cabin was clean and comfortable, well-stocked for all we might need while there, and full of all the character you would expect in a rustic, cabin setting. The view of the river was phenominal. Our kids and their spouses all praised my husband and myself for our choice of the cabin and said they would love to meet there again!
