Garden Flat at Cedar Haus

Around the corner from the shops on Elm Street in Downtown WashMo, the Garden Flat is the main level of the Cedar Haus.

Located in the historical Tibbe District of Downtown Washington, Missouri, the Cedar Haus is a grand 3 story 2-family home for family and friends to gather.

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 Garden Flat at the Cedar Haus is in the heart of WashMo and Missouri wine country and less than an hour from St. Louis.


The renovated 1908 brick home main level, aka Garden Flat, has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, and living area. It sleeps a total of 6 people on the main level.

Over a century old, the fireplace (nonworking), doors, woodwork, and hardwood floors have been refurbished, adding a beautiful charm to this brick home.

In the 1930s, the home was made into a 2-family house, and it was kept that way when recently restored. Every effort was taken to soundproof the stairs and floor between the main and second level, but sounds (i.e. tromping on the stairs, slammed door, other guests who naturally speak loudly) will still filter through the hardwood floors.

IMPORTANT: Because this is an historical home, that does mean you will most likely hear noise from the guests above you in the Tibbe Flat. If you are sensitive to noise, please consider booking the entire Cedar Haus so that you have all 3 levels of the home to yourself.

The Garden Flat at the Cedar Haus is dog friendly for pre-approved dogs only.


The living area on the main level is an open floor plan showcasing the fireplace centerpiece and hardwood floors.

The great room has a queen sleeper sofa and a flat screen TV. The dining area has an antique dining table with a corner bench and two chairs.

The full kitchen has everything you need to make your own meals, including place settings, pots and pans, wine glasses, and both a French press and a regular coffee maker.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed with crisp white linens and a door to the covered back deck. The en suite bathroom has a gorgeous subway tile shower with handheld spa shower head.

The second bedroom also has a queen size bed and its own door to the covered back deck. The second bathroom is located off the kitchen area.


The covered deck steps down to the fenced yard and has a view of downtown building rooftops and steeples. The backyard is fully fenced and a great place for the kids and doggies to play.


The washer and dryer is located in the basement and accessible to guests.

Our stay at the Bank Haus was a wonderful experience. It is a combination of modern conveniences and the robust architecture of a century old brick building built to be a symbol of stability and strength in the community.

It was clean and comfortable. The transom windows, squeaky wood floors, high ceilings covered in tin ceiling tiles, expansive windows and doors, long staircase, real wooden doors and two vaults all added to the experience. The modern kitchen and bathrooms were integrated in a way that made it easy for three families to move around easily and be comfortable.

In the middle of a classic tree-lined downtown residential street, the Cedar Haus is a short walk to all the best stops in downtown Washington.

Around the corner from boutique shops, local pubs, cafes, and restaurants, and the festival zone, as well as a couple blocks from the Missouri River, the Amtrak Station, and the Riverfront Park, you’ll enjoy keeping your car parked and taking strolls to your destination.

Downtown Washington is a destination on its own, but if you want to explore further out, you don’t have far to go:

  • Mercy Hospital @ 5 minutes
  • Katy Trail (Dutzow Trailhead) @ 9 minutes
  • Augusta (Wineries and Shops) @ 17 minutes
  • New Haven (Wineries, Distilleries, Glass Shop) @ 18 minutes
  • Purina Farms and Event Center @ 23 minutes
  • Six Flags Theme Park @ 30 minutes
  • Hermann (Wineries, Breweries, Distilleries) @ 35 minutes
  • St. Louis @ 55 minutes
  • Huzzah Valley Floating @ 75 minutes

You can bike or walk anywhere in Downtown Washington or drive your car. You’ll need transportation of some type with you (car, bike, or your feet) as there are very few Uber drivers available in the area.

Winery shuttles are available to the local wineries as well.
