The Bee's Knees: excellent - the very best

Step back in time onto the historical Locust Street District of Downtown Washington, Missouri to our exclusive collection of Missouri Haus vacation rental homes.

The Bee's Knees is two of our neighboring homes together -- the Mill Haus and the Beekeeper's Cottage -- giving you the exclusive use of the private heated swimming pool, hot tub, backyard, and large game room in addition to both houses.

Bring your whole family, your besties also, for a wine country or golf getaway, ride the Katy Trail, or celebrate a wedding at one of the nearby wedding venues. The Bee's Knees properties are in the heart of WashMo and Missouri wine country and less than an hour from St. Louis.

On the National Register of Historic Places as a part of the Locust Street Historical District, the renovated early 1900 historical homes are fully updated with modern amenities. With a total of 7 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, and 3 half bathrooms, the Bee's Knees sleeps a total of 18 people.

(See below on how the bedrooms and bathrooms are located in the two homes next to each other.)

Over a century old, the fireplaces (nonworking), doors, woodwork, and hardwood floors have all been refurbished, adding a beautiful charm to the brick homes.

The Bee's Knees homes are dog friendly for pre-approved dogs only.

MAIN LEVEL: BEEKEEPER'S COTTAGE

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

From the living room and through the double sliding pocket doors is the dining area with a gorgeous hardwood dining table and seating for 6 people.

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

MAIN LEVEL: MILL HAUS

The living area on the main level is an open floor plan stretching the entire side of the house, showcasing the old fireplace and hardwood floors.

Across the hall is the parlor room with additional period pieces of furniture and a nonworking fireplace.

The dining area seats 6 people, with additional seating in the kitchen and on the screened back porch.

The beautifully detailed full kitchen has everything you need to make your own meals, including modern appliances, place settings, pots and pans, wine glasses, and a regular coffee maker.

Bonus quirk is a hall turned into a pantry/bar area with an ice machine. Then a half bath located between the kitchen and the parlor room.

SECOND LEVEL: BEEKEEPER'S COTTAGE

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.

SECOND LEVEL: MILL HAUS

Up a flight of century old stairs (take either the grand front staircase or the kitchen staircase), the second level has three bedrooms and both of the full bathrooms.

Bedroom 1 has a king size bed with crisp white linens, a nonworking fireplace accent, and an en suite bathroom with an amazing dressing room with delicious natural light.

Bedroom 2 has a king size bed with en suite full bathroom, and Bedroom 3 has a queen size bed.

THIRD LEVEL: MILL HAUS

Take another flight of narrow steps to the top floor for the finished third level and Bedroom 4. This bedroom has two (2) queen beds.

LAUNDRY and HALF BATH

The set of front loading washer and dryer is located between the bedrooms on the second level at Mill Haus. Another set is on the main level at the Beekeeper's Cottage. A half bath is located on the main level near the kitchen at each house, and a third half bath is in the garage for when you are enjoying the swimming pool.

BACKYARD, SWIMMING POOL, HOT TUB

The fenced backyard is a treat with the PRIVATE HEATED swimming pool and hot tub. 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 May through September weather permitting.

**Hot tub is open year round!

Dogs are welcome in the yard, but not in the swimming pool or hot tub.

Bee's Knees also has access to a gas grill, a charcoal grill (charcoal not provided), patio table, and fire pit (firewood not provided).

GAME ROOM ABOVE GARAGE

The game room above the garage is INCLUDED. More family fun with the pool table, darts, shuffleboard, and big screen TV.

EXCLUSIVE USE OF THE POOL, HOT TUB, GAME ROOM, and BACKYARD

Your group has exclusive use of the swimming pool, hot tub, game room, and backyard since you are booking both the Beekeeper's Cottage and the Mill Haus together -- the Bee's Knees.

LOCATION

Sitting on a classic tree-lined downtown residential street, the Bee's Knees is only a few blocks from the riverfront and all the best cafes, restaurants, local pubs, and boutique shops in downtown Washington as well as the festival zone.

The Missouri River, the Amtrak Station, and the Riverfront Park, are an easy stroll or bike ride from the house.

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

* Six Flags Theme Park @ 30 minutes

* Hermann (Wineries, Breweries, Distilleries) @ 35 minutes

* St. Louis @ 55 minutes

GETTING AROUND

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.

WEDDING and OTHER CELEBRATIONS

We welcome bridal groups for wedding preparation as well as bachelor and bachelorette groups. The light is beautiful in the house and will make for stunning wedding prep photos for both the bride and the groom.

CANCELLATION POLICY

If you cancel before 45 days of arrival, you receive a full refund of your deposit, less a cancellation fee. If you cancel within 45 days of arrival, there is no refund. We highly encourage you to purchase travel insurance to cover your stay in case of unforeseen circumstances.

CLEANING PROCEDURES

We are looking forward to hosting you for your vacation! Our housekeepers are continuing their extremely high standards of cleaning and preparing our places for you.

TRAVEL INSURANCE — You can purchase travel insurance for your reservation. The standard policy covers quite a few reasons for cancellation and applies to your whole traveling group from what we understand. We have partnered with a travel insurance company so that all of our guests have an option for insurance, but note that we do not sell insurance nor play an insurance agent on TV so cannot advise you, nor require you, to purchase it.

Note that all new reservations have the option of purchasing a Cancel For Any Reason insurance policy besides the standard travel insurance policy. You can purchase this when you make your reservation with us, and the insurance is automatically connected to your stay.
