Interaction with Guests
As much as possible. You get FREE Ice Cream at check in, so there's a great opportunity:)
We're locals, so we're often out and about on the weekends. We love surprising our guests with a drink or dessert when we see them out!
I LOVE the River, always have! Not only is there the natural beauty of the Confluence of the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers, but Grafton is just 6 miles from Pere Marquette State Park where there are hiking and biking trails. There is also horse back riding at the park. The Grafton Marina is 5 blocks down the road and you can rent boats or go for a parasailing ride there as well. Both the Grafton Zipline and Raging Rivers Water Park are within a mile from us and there a many wineries/bars within walking distance too. There's really something for everyone in Grafton!
You can pretty much walk everywhere in town, or bike. There is a shuttle that will take you to the winery on the hill where you can see across the river to STL.

Kim was a great host! Communication was easy, prompt, and very polite.
The wonderful town of Grafton is your typical small town America. We were not able to stay at "The Loft" but Kim made other accommodations which were fantastic!
If you're visiting this area, I highly recommend contacting Kim!
