On August 21 2017, a very rare and awe-inspiring event will take place along a very narrow band of land in the heartland.  At 1:15pm, Washington, Missouri will have a perfect view of a total eclipse of the sun, turning day into night for several minutes.  While a wider band will experience a partial eclipse, Washington is in the 70-mile wide band that will experience totality.  A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and the earth, casting a shadow on the earth’s surface.  2017 will be the first time in 38 years a total solar eclipse has occurred in the continental United States.

 
DeBourge Guesthouse has already taken several reservations for guests wanting to experience this once in a lifetime event.  Our website only allows one to book up to a year in advance, but we are taking reservations by phone now, at 636-399-0466, or by e-mail and reservations@debourgehouse.com.  Rates for August 20th and 21st are $135/night.
