Unplug and escape to Elsah. This historic river town sports a general store, historic museum, and expansive views of the Mississippi River (est 1853). Did we say the best winter/spring eagle watching anywhere! Nestled beneath towering limestone bluffs along the Scenic River Road, just a walk through town can inspire and relax, reminiscing forgotten days. The home is furnished with antiques and art. Every room is light-filled and contains wooded scenes.

The space
This spaciously furnished home can serve as an inspiring retreat, while you take in eagles; Pére Marquette State Park; the bustling river town of Grafton; or historic sites in Downtown Alton or St Louis. It features three beds (a king, queen, and a single), a full kitchen, living and dining areas, a private bath, full laundry, recreation room (complete with stereo and an open floor plan to provide a relaxing gathering space); the house can sleep three-five comfortably, if they are familiar- one bath. Wireless WIFI was recently added. Its powerful enough for streaming movies or checking email, but not the fast speed fiber most city dwellers are used to. We've clocked it at (20/2mbps).
