Our family of six loves to travel, and when we discovered the vacation home option instead of hotels, we knew we wanted a rental property of our own to share with others. We hope our cottages enhance your vacation like so many homes have done for us. We love meeting and talking with people from all over, so please feel free to give us a call!- Audrey and Matt

Audrey and Matt purchased this house in 2012

We've always loved Old Town St. Charles because of its charm, fun atmosphere, and historic architecture. When we saw this little brick house for sale we thought it was just perfect and would be a way for us to enjoy the area even more and let other people experience it too.

With everything in walking distance, we love that we don't have to pile everyone into the car when we want to go eat, shop, or play. The many festivities and events happening all year round, give the whole family something to enjoy.

Wonderful stay at the Guest Cottage!

My husband, daughter (18), and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend in St. Charles and neighboring St. Louis for a little getaway at the start of her spring break week. Your house is in the perfect St. Charles location, just a block off main street and it's so completely charming. Daughter, with her vivid creative imagination, couldn't get past the knowledge that the house is over 140 years old and even though it's completely redone so beautifully, she immediately chose the adorable, comfortable "sunroom" bedroom off the kitchen as opposed to the upstairs bedroom for fear of it being haunted. :) It added to the charm of the visit really and became our little source of talk/laughter on the weekend nights, as I reminded her of the vast majority of historic buildings in St. Charles. She adored her stay in the sunroom bedroom and wishes that she had a room like that at home because it was just so cheery and just right for her petite size. We stayed in the downstairs bedroom which provided some very restful nights of sleep. The first night of our stay, husband relaxed in the comfortable living room, while daughter and I ventured out on foot to explore the town and riverfront. We spent the rest of our time between our favorite areas of St. Louis (Forest Park, Webster Groves - Euclid Records!, Delmar Loop), shopping our favorite shops in historic St. Charles (Joy's and MOss Boutique are 2 personal favorites), and dinner out with friends. We enjoyed Allin's Diner off Kingshighway for breakfast one morning), Little Hills Winery for drinks by the fire was a spirited thing to do on a cold-March night, It was so nice to have our own comfortable space in the house (separated on 3 floors), and we very much appreciated the snacks, the Keurig, the maps in the living room, the adorable shutters, the fresh flowers awaiting on the kitchen table and the little flower sprig in the main floor bathroom. So sweet and thoughtful!! We're spoiled at home with our extra large wall tvs, so this one seemed a bit small to us based on the size of that wall and what could be there : ) but since we weren't there to watch television anyway, it was fine though we had some trouble locating channels that actually showed movies (most were unavailable). Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we definitely recommend this beautiful vacation rental to others!

My husband and 2 children (11 & 8 yo) met up with my 72 yo mother in St. Louis for Spring Break. The house was wonderful. My husband and I stayed in the Master bedroom downstairs, the kids took the upstairs bedroom and my mom stayed in the small room on the main floor near the bathroom and kitchen. The kids were thrilled to find all the board and card games. The WII was a big hit too, as were the movies. My mom, husband and I loved all the little touches- coffee, snacks, goodies in the fridge, menus, etc. Location was great for access to St. Charles and St. Louis. I would stay here again and recommend it to friends.

Spent three weeks in this lovely home... Location Location Location!

My family spent three weeks in this home during the worst winter in 20 years. While we were looking forward to enjoying the shops along Main Street, our time was limited as we spent a lot of time indoors evading the 10+ inches of snow and multiple snowfalls that hit during our stay. We loved this home and after staying for so long, it was sad to say goodbye. We didn't really miss having a stove as we found a decent number of delivery places and plenty of wonderful restaurants close by and made do with the skillet when we weren't able to get outdoors. This house is perfectly located within walking distance of all of the shops and restaurants on main street. The house itself is well maintained and the beds, sheets and pillows are all super comfy! The owners were delightful, even making a quick trip to the market for us when the big snowfall hit. The walkway and cars were cleaned off for us (THANK YOU!) and if I ever needed anything, they were super responsive and nice to deal with. I would definitely stay here again (in nicer weather!!) and would recommend this place to anyone wanting easy walk-able access to the old downtown St Charles. My favorite places on this trip: Picasso's Coffee Shop, Handyworks (kids LOVED this place!), and Imo's (some of the best Imo's I have had!).

My 4 girlfriends and i had a wonderful cozy time at this sweet little cottage. From the pics i wasn't sure on the size of the place, but it was plenty big, so much room. i wanted to just buy the house and stay forever! so much charm in the house with the brick. it was so clean and comfortable. We cooked some meals in the crockpot and went out for lunches. the location to the shops was so close and we loved shopping and eating, we wanted to stay longer just to see everything. so close to downtown, so we were also able to go to the arch as well. Thank you Audrey for making our stay so wonderful!!!

The Guest house was the perfect place to celebrate a family birthday, shop and enjoy the sights of St. Charles and St. Louis. We can't wait to have our girls weekend there in the spring.
