This cozy 1950s bungalow is close to downtown Ste. Genevieve, and right off the highway. You’ll love The St. Gen Type Inn because it's a charming little house with spacious views, handmade quilts, a green tub, original art and antique typewriters . Some you can even use!
It is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets). It is a perfect writers retreat.

Clean house nicely decorated with typewriters. Our family enjoyed our 2 night stay and loved exploring the town and nearby state parks and historic sites.

Easy, quiet place overlooking some fields, about a 3 min drive into the main part of town. Cozy little house with a comfy bed and a kitchen. The hosts were very responsive; I locked myself out one afternoon, and they came by while I was out to unlock the door.

The house was super cute and worked well for my mother, myself and my toddler. It was easy to find and located close to downtown Ste Genevieve and the local wineries.

Modest ranch home with great view of Le Grand Champ. Bedroom 2 only has a twin bed, which we didn't expect.

Response from Loui:
The photos show the twin bed and there are details in the text about the beds and rules and extra charges.

First, the good. Location to downtown St Genevieve and restaurants is great. Was nice to have a yard and be able to bring our dog. Plenty of towels and the basics were provided in the kitchen. On the bad side, we found the double bed basically not possible for two people to slee…

Response from Loui:
The 1950s bugalow is specifically styled to that era with a full size bed. They used to call it a double size. There is deliberately no TV and stated clearly. The TYPE Inn is for Unplugging, reading, writing, communicating and listening, the good old fashioned ways of R&R.
