The property is well maintained and quiet. Near historic Main Street St. Charles. Quiet, safe neighborhood, minutes from all highway accesses and 30 minutes from downtown St. Louis, MO. Pet-friendly, plenty of parking.
Ivan and Donna have a very comfortable and quiet home. They were very welcoming, and happy to talk and share meals, or just let have my space. I enjoyed getting to know them a bit while I was there. And I felt like they offered more than was expected in order to host me and make me feel at home. The room and bed were comfortable, and there was a private bathroom a couple doors down the hallway. Before this trip, I had only stayed in one other shared/private room through AirBnB, and from that I was expecting the setup to be a bit more secluded from the rest of the house. However, it didn't have a separate entrance or anything like that, and felt more like staying in a room at a house of someone that I knew. Their kitchen and dining area was nice and wide-open, and I was able to use it for cooking meals during my trip. They had all the cookware, dishes, and utensils I needed. I rented a car, and was able to park in the driveway, and didn't have any trouble getting to the places I needed to go in the area.
