Welcome to "The Burrow." This 1 bed/1 bath updated walk-out basement suite sits in the city of St. Louis. Just 1 mile (30 minute walk) to Forest Park/zoo/art museum and 7 miles to downtown, this suite is the perfect stay for your time in STL.
*Please read the entire description, including the House Rules, before placing your reservation, to avoid any unnecessary surprises.
Centrally located, this suite comfortably fits 4 people (1 queen bed, 1 queen sleeper sofa). You will have your own entrance in the back, a full kitchen (refrigerator, stove-top oven, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, tea kettle), free wi-fi, and gas fireplace. To be more eco friendly, we have exchanged the Keurig for a 5-cup coffee maker. You will find a stainless steel water bottle to use during your stay, 6 eggs, butter, yogurt, homemade granola, coffee and tea upon your arrival.
***The bathroom ceiling is 6' high.
*** We no longer have a couch and futon. We now have a leather love seat and a sectional that pulls out to a queen bed.
We have a Vizsla named Nuska who you will often find running around in the yard. We have a large yard for living in the city and keep chickens in the very back. Feel free to ask for eggs, or if you're up for an adventure, go back and collect them whenever you'd like. Cook them up on the stove and they make a great breakfast. * The chickens take a break in the winter so there won't be fresh eggs during those months but we still provide eggs (from the store) in your fridge.
For the kids we offer:
-a pack n play
-backyard basketball court
-chicken discovering and egg collecting
-Neighborhood park/playground 1 street away

Other things to note
This is the basement of our home in a family neighborhood so don't be surprised if you occasionally hear a dog bark, a chicken cluck, or a baby's faint cry. We have done everything we can to make the space as soundproof as possible but life still happens.
Our check in time is anytime after 3:00 pm and our check out time is anytime before 11:00 am. If for some reason you need some flexibility let us know and we will try our hardest to accommodate you the best we can.
Please treat our space with respect. Our desire in hosting is to provide a clean, comfortable place for you to relax and feel at home for an affordable price! Because of this, we don't tag on fees for extra people or cleaning. Please help us by leaving the space picked up. And if you have the time, doing your dishes before you leave is a huge help to us. Thank you!
Emily grew up in Florida and Andrew grew up in Illinois. We ended up in St. Louis and love it here. We are both educators and when not teaching, we spend our time doing projects around our house, tending the chickens and dog, doing any of the many free things around the city, cooking but also discovering new eateries around the Lou. We are members and community group leaders of The Journey. We love hosting and find joy in the comfort of our guests.
