50 miles North of St. Louis; Right off I-55: PET FRIENDLY. Located on Route 66. This is a small house that has been tastefully decorated and filled with new and vintage furnishings. Only a couple blocks south of the Route 66 museum. Filled with Route 66 memorabilia. Food and shopping close by. Right off the interstate. Lake Lou Yaeger is close by. We have several train tracks coming through the center of town. Hopefully it will lull you to sleep by the occasional distant rumbling.

The space
The Route 66 house is over 80 years old. It was built before Route 66 was an attraction. Some of the wood used to build the house was old barn wood of different sizes. Whatever was available post-war. The ceiling is a little under the average 8’ for today’s homes. This was very common for that era. My wife and I remodeled the house and have filled it with new furnishings but have added little touches of Route 66. The dining room table is made out is a steel tire rim and a water meter cover. With a water valve to touch it off. We've added a new modern kitchen and lots of small touches to make you feel at home.
There is NO Cable TV. Wireless internet only with Netflix and Youtube on the TV. There is only 1 bedroom and it has a queen bed with a 12” memory foam mattress. There is a queen sofa sleeper in the family room with a memory foam mattress. It's not the most comfortable but I've never found one that was. The map on your phone app doesn’t pinpoint the address very well. It might show the water tower. We are two houses south of the water tower.

Guest access
You have complete access to the entire house including a carport located onsite

Other things to note
There is a queen sofa sleeper in the living room with a memory foam mattress. It is fairly comfortable but not as good As the queen bed in the bedroom which has a 12” memory foam mattress. There is no cable tv. Wireless high speed Internet is provided. Netflix and Youtube is set up on the TV.
We are pet friendly. However, if the house is extra dirty or damaged by your pet your deposit could be forfeited in part or all of it. Please bring your pets bed/kennel to avoid using the couch for that purpose.

We are Mike and Amy James. We have been married for 30 years. We have 3 wonderful grown boys and 4 awesome grandchildren. We've lived in the Litchfield area for more than 20 years. We recently bought this house so our extended families can have a place to stay when they come to visit and realized we probably wouldn't be using it very many weeks out of the year. That's when we thought about AIRBNB. We wanted to share it with others. The two of us remodeled and decorated the entire house ourselves. And we aren't carpenters but we had a great time. We hope you feel warm and welcome in our home.
