Inside the historical Locust Street District of Downtown Washington, Missouri, the Beekeeper’s Cottage is rumored to have had Auggie Bush as a frequent visitor when the Cottage first opened as a vacation rental in the 1900s.
The Beekeeper’s Cottage is a part of the exclusive collection of Missouri Haus vacation rental homes. Bring your mom and sisters for a wine country getaway, ride the Katy Trail, or celebrate a wedding at one of the nearby wedding venues. The Beekeeper’s Cottage is in the heart of WashMo and Missouri wine country and less than an hour from St. Louis.
Up a flight of 100 year old steep stairs, the upper level has all three bedrooms and both of the full bathrooms.
Bedroom 1 has a queen size bed with crisp white linens, a nonworking fireplace accent, and an en suite bathroom with gorgeous clawfoot tub and shower.
Bedroom 2 has two queen size beds, and Bedroom 3 has a queen size bed. These bedrooms share the second full bathroom. This bathroom has double pedestal sinks and a walk-in shower.
The set of front loading washer and dryer is located off the kitchen by the back door. The half bath is also across the hall.
BACKYARD, SWIMMING POOL, HOT TUB
The fenced backyard is a treat with the shared hot tub and heated swimming pool of the Mill Haus next door. Note that the fence encloses the backyard for both the Beekeeper’s Cottage and the Mill Haus, and there is no fence separating the yards nor an additional inside fence around the swimming pool.
***Pool is open mid May through September weather permitting.***
Dogs are welcome in the yard, but not in the swimming pool or hot tub.
GAME ROOM ABOVE GARAGE
The game room above the garage is not included in the listed rate but is available for an additional charge of $50 per night plus a $35 cleaning fee. The rate is times the number of nights of your stay even if you use it for only one night.
The game room can be added to your stay and is available to both the Beekeeper’s Cottage and the Mill Haus on a first-come-first-serve basis. It will not be shared, but the 1/2 bath in the garage is available to all guests using the swimming pool.
EXCLUSIVE USE OF THE HOT TUB, POOL, GAME ROOM, and BACKYARD
Exclusive use of the hot tub, heated swimming pool, game room, and backyard is only available when you book both the Beekeeper’s Cottage and the Mill Haus together — the houses together are referred to as the Bee’s Knees.
