I saved a room for you in my beautifully restored 100 year old home. We're in a sweet, safe little town ten minutes from the Arch and Busch Stadium in St. Louis, half a mile to highway access. Within blocks of a convenience store, 2 restaurant/bars, bakery, ice cream shop, pizzaria, and farmer's market. The decor is eclectic, and your room has a comfy Queen size bed, dresser, closet, and a TV, desk and chair. Fast internet speed, and refrigerator/cooking gear in my sunny kitchen.

The space
My renovated home has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a bright, airy kitchen. You're welcome to cook, use the guest refrigerator, and borrow my dishes/cookware. This is an artist's home, friendly and eclectic. You'll have easy off-street parking, and a code for the back door so you can come and go as you please. Can't wait to make you feel right at home!

Easy access to the Convention Center, only 8 minutes from downtown STL, and within 6 blocks we have an Irish pub with great food, a steakhouse, convenience store, ice cream shop, and a 100 year old bakery. We're an easy walk (under 1/2 mile) to a farmer's market, pizzaria, and all of downtown Collinsville. Excellent safe, quiet location with easy access to everything!

I'm an artist and an actress, and a substitute teacher for a day job. I've got three grown kids, and 1 little dog. Being an Airbnb host is great way to make some extra money and I've met some really cool people, even made some friends!

During your stay

Generally my guests are working and sleeping, and we might run into each other in passing. I give people their privacy but don't mind the occasional chat.
