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!
New Washington, MO Ghost Tour Kicks Off in April
New in 2017, you can now learn all about the Haunted History of the historic downtown Washington district. Every third Thursday of the month, you can go on a 3/4 mile walking ghost tour by meeting at the corner of Main St. and Elm St. at 7pm. You won’t be able to miss your tour guide, she will be in costume. The cost is $20 per person, and the Washington, MO ghost tour will take about an hour.
By no means is this a complete list. We put this together for a guest who had to change their plans because of the weather. Their original plan was to ride their bikes on the Katy Trail.
Over the next month or two, I will be tackling some of the frequently asked questions that we get at the B&B. Some of these questions occur prior to a reservation being made, others after the reservation has been made, and some once the guest arrives at the house. The question we get asked the most when guests arrive is where they should eat now they are settled in.
Hermann Bed and Breakfast Alternative – DeBourge Guesthouse, Washington, MO
Hermann, MO is a very popular destination for those wanting to visit Missouri Wine County. The town is very quaint and offers many Bed & Breakfast options that provide guests with a very unique experience. During the spring and fall seasons, it is very difficult to find a room at one of their bed and breakfasts at a reasonable rate. As I write this on March 3, a popular booking site shows that 6 B&Bs in Hermann have a total of four rooms available at the average rate of $210.75 April 21-23 (Tues-Thurs). That weekend, there is only one room available at these 6 B&Bs at a $170 rate.
DeBourge House can be your cost-effective alternative to the higher-priced, higher-demand options in Hermann. DeBourge House also offers closer proximity to other wineries east of Hermann. Blumenhof, Augusta, Montelle, and more are an easy drive from Washington, MO and DeBourge House.
A Walking Tour in the Snow
It finally snowed on President’s Day here in downtownWashington and I was lucky enough to get to take a walk and enjoy the scenery that is within walking distance from the bed and breakfast. One of the things I enjoy most about Washington is the diversity and uniqueness of the architecture that can be found throughout town. Just a short walk from DeBourge Guesthouse Bed & Breakfast are many examples of this architecture. Some of the buildings were built in the mid-1800s and others were built in the past couple years.
