In July 2018 my historian husband, Dean and I purchased a small, but charming house for our mid-life creativity project.  Built in 1941, a prototype 4-room house design constructed a couple of dozen times in the historic town of St. Charles, Missouri during the WWII era.  Our house was the first of its kind in St. Charles.   We have named our home “Deanna’s Cottage”, Dean and Anna’s cottage.  Photos are updated as we work through our ongoing projects.  Decor has been refurbished, repurposed antiques and second-hand finds.  A love nest and enjoying the empty nest.  No children, grandchildren, or pets except for a short visit here and there.  Refreshing for us.

In December 2018 we listed our cottage on Airbnb, known as “Deanna’s Cottage”.  These 2-day reservations are for festival weekends only.  Guests have full use of the guest bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and living room.  The living room has 2 sling-back pullout single beds, so it is possible to house 4 people comfortably.  We lock off our bedroom, and stay nearby with my daughter & son-in-law those weekends.  Here is the first guest’s review you can view on Airbnb’s website: “This 1930’s cottage was a cozy retreat from all that St. Charles has to offer during the holidays. Impeccably clean, it was a great value and a charming environment. The tasty tray of treats was my husband’s favorite, though I liked having access to my own kitchen and the warmth of staying in a home.”  If interested to make a reservation, go to: https://www.airbnb.com/.

  1. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come
    here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer
    to create your theme? Superb work!
