This Civil War era home was built in 1870 by a retired Union General. It is located on the highest point in the area and overlooks downtown Cape Girardeau. Your room is on the second floor with a shared second floor bathroom.

There is a single cat living on the property. She is very friendly and will try to sleep with you if your door is open.

The space
The space is for short term stayers mostly as it is a full size bed with memory foam mattress and that's about all that can fit. There's a closet with hangers, towels and extra toiletries.

My wife and I normally live in SE Asia but the virus has brought us home. Now we're running around the US just enjoying everything this country has to offer.

During your stay

You are always welcome to text me at any time with questions and, if you're around over a weekend I'll be happy to show you the downtown area. Otherwise, if you don't need me, I'll stay out of your hair :)
