Transportation Across the Washington, MO Bridge
Every year, we have dozens of bicyclists stay with us as they make their way across the state of Missouri via the Katy Trail. We have served extreme cyclists, repeat cyclists who come back year after year, and we have also had guests that weren’t quite sure what they were getting in to. No matter your skill level, DeBourge Guesthouse is a great option for you as you make your way through Marthasville, Dutzow, and Augusta. We are happy to pick you up at the Dutzow trail head at no cost. Or even better, just east of the trail head is Blumenhof Winery. While you wait for your ride, why not enjoy a bottle of Missouri wine? We’ll pick you up at the winery too!
For the past several years, we have been providing a hot breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings, but we have been apprehensive to advertise it on our website. With Bridgette & I both working full time at jobs that often times require us to work on weekends, our fear was that we would not be able to offer this service to each and every guest on weekends. We felt like if our guests we expecting a self-serve breakfast and were provided a hot breakfast service, we would exceed those guests expectations.
We have figured out the logistics to consistently provide hot weekend breakfast and are now ready to commit to our guests that this should be an expected, value-added amenity when they stays with us.
Why Guests Stay at DeBourge Guesthouse
There are many reasons why our guests decide to stay with us, instead of other local options. Some are looking for a unique experience that they cannot get at a hotel. Others have a larger group and our house’s makeup of guestrooms and bathrooms is the most convenient for the group. Katy Trail riders are excited to learn that we will pick up from the trail at no additional charge. Read More

During the winter months, the bed & breakfast business is typically slow in Missouri wine country. We are happy that our business has been a lot busier this winter season than normal, but that has not stopped us from working on improving our guest experience for the upcoming season. These improvements touch a lot of different areas around the house. Read More
We are very excited to be mentioned in a recent volume of Feast Magazine (April 29, 2016) as a place to stay in Washington, MO. The article focuses on many of the fine restaurants we have in town. While much of the information about DeBourge House is out of date, we truly appreciate the publicity!
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.
With a year under our belt as Bed & Breakfast owners, there are several things we learned in 2015 that we want to improve for our guests in 2016. As we approach the spring season, guests will notice some changes to the house and to our online presence.
