Inspiring Wooded Cottage
Filled with antiques and art, this Inspiring Wooded Cottage in Elsah is both charming and relaxing. Nestled in a wooded area only half a mile from the Mississippi River and walking trails, the cottage offers nearby access to the historic Village of Elsah. The village evokes its 19th century heritage with unique shops offering art, pottery, and crafts, a historic museum, gardens, and an old-fashioned general store.
The spaciously furnished home can serve as an inspiring retreat while you take in wintering eagles, Pére Marquette State Park, the bustling river town of Grafton, or historic sites and antiques in Downtown Alton or St Louis.
The cottage features two bedrooms including a king and a long double bed, an extra twin bed downstairs, a full kitchen, living and dining areas, and a full bath on the main floor. Downstairs, a full laundry connects to a finished basement in an open floor plan perfect for playing board games, listening to music, or watching TV. The cottage also features 20/2mbps Wi-Fi so you can stream movies or keep up with email.
Bring your four-legged friend along and toss a ball in the large front yard, have a coffee on the shaded back deck, or walk to the village along a wetland trail with multiple bridges perfect for birdwatching.
