Barb and Steve were gracious hosts and their home is beautiful. Be prepared for their cute little toy poodles. They bark when you enter but Barb handles them very well and they didn't bark when I was in my room And Barb would put them up if I needed to be in the kitchen.

This listing is a supreme steal for anyone visiting near Edwardsville. Folks will have their own judgments about the drive into St. Louis; I traveled to and from. Obviously, Edwardsville is closer. Either way, the experience was well worth the drive for me. Barb and Steve are exquisite hosts. The accommodations are perfect for 1; just fine for a couple. The house is spotless. Wifi is great. Parking pad is super. The dogs are small and they will bark at you. One was very happy to see me and jumped and jumped; the other was less pleased with me and just barked. They'll bark when you are together. Barb and Steve keep them, mostly, in rooms away from guests; they are virtually silent when not in the same room as guests. I am one of the less dog friendly people I know and the dogs were just fine with me. No troubles, no worries. They are, however, in the picture for your consideration. In all . . . PURRRFECT. (opps... no cats) = ; >

Our stay at Barbara's was perfect in every way. The location at Holiday Shores was charming and very peaceful. Barbara and her husband Steven did everything they could to make sure our stay was comfortable.

Barbara is a very accommodating host. The home is in a beautiful setting on a peaceful lake. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was good with many choices. The house is a little off the beaten track but a good option if your travels take you in the vicinity. There are two small dogs, who can get agitated with new guests; but they were quiet during the night.

I am retired, my husband is still working. We enjoy traveling; especially to locations that have clear turquoise water. Our home is crowded with collectibles and old furniture .. too full. Our style of hosting is listening to guest preferences then try to accommodate their wishes. Our lifestyle is governed by my husband 's work and revolves around our two toy poodles.
