I stayed here in early July, 2018. About as close to heaven as you can get on the Katy. Tranquil accommodations, excellent tub for soaking off the miles, plenty of books for catching up on local history, and the food can not be beat. I have a restricted diet, and Joey made me some amazing breakfasts, and even encouraged me to pick some veggies from the garden. I had planned on staying just one night, but ended up staying two, and took a day trip to Hermann. Go out of your way to stay here for a night or two. Joey and the Bird House are jewels on the Katy.

Joey's Bird House was a very welcome and convenient place and a great find! The snacks in the room were good and well thought out. I didn't have the energy to go in to Herman but the grocery store near there has a good deli and a good place to get all the other trail food and drink. Joey is very friendly and accommodating and serves a good breakfast.

There are two great things about Joey's Birdhouse, the room and Joey. The room was very cozy and comfortable, and even came with some snacks. Joey was great and very accomadating, she offered a ride in to town and was knowledgeable of surrounding amenities. On top of that, the breakfast was excellent. Would definitely recommend Joey's Birdhouse.

Joey's Bird House was a great place to stay right off the trail in McKittrick. Joey had the cottage ready for us when we got there and checked in with us a short time later. A great breakfast was served in the morning. A suggestion is to stop at the Loutre Grocery Store just off the trail on Hwy 94 for any refreshments/food as they have a great deli for a sandwich. You could also venture into Herman across the river. McKittrick has no other food options that we saw.

We totally splurged on the stage room this summer for our Katy trip. We figured after a few days being cooped in a trailer, our two year old would appreciate a LOT of room to run around. It was amazing and totally worth it! We arrived early and Joey was accommodating. We loved the tub (our toddler also loved the tub), it felt like a spa. Joey left us snacks and cookies and our daughter loved the milk. The stage room is just so special and we had such an amazing time here. Joey told us that the blackberries in her garden were ripe and we could help ourselves and this made for the sweetest moments with our little one, I bet she ate 50 of them during our stay. Breakfast was also excellent and with good company. This was the stuff memories are made of.

We arrived (very) early. Joey allowed us to ditch our trailer and bags, we then bikes into Hermann. After a couple of hours we returned to a clean, quaint, cosy 'cottage' with cold beers in the fridge and cookies for afternoon coffee.
We were invited to a local potluck that evening; everyone was very friendly.
Joey cooked an excellent breakfast the following morning, served in the beautiful Mercantile building. This was one of the best nights accommodation and food during our Katy trip.

This was one of our best BnB experiences. Joey knows how to do it. We started and ended our 4 day Katy Ride here. Stayed here the first night and had a wonderful breakfast with items right from Joey's garden and local farms. We rode out and back eastward on the trail the next day, then caught the evening Amtrak train across the river in Hermann west to Sedalia. After another three days on the trail heading back, we returned here for our final night. Joey made it the best experience. Most comfortable mattress and best food on the entire trip!

This is such a cute and quaint place to stay if you're doing the trek down the trail. Great breakfast, quiet location, and just what you need to stay a night or two. Highly recommended. Joey is super sweet and helpful too!

I second this opinion. We love Joey's Birdhouse and stay there often.

A friend and I stayed at Joey's Birdhouse in Mid May of this year. We found a clean room and a hospitable host. We enjoyed the snacks and milk she had left for us and especially enjoyed the German Pancakes and all of the fixings for the breakfast. I left my water bottles in the fridge and Joey offered to bring them to us on the trail! First class!

A stay @ Joey's Bird House is a must if it will fit into you planning schedule at all. Believe me it is worth the extra miles on either side of the trip. All she has advertised is true and other positive comments ring true as well. We got into a cool room where we found snacks, milk, orange juice, snickers, and 2 light beers for those who imbibe. There was plenty of teas to choose from and a French press for coffee just the way you like it. The breakfast was 2nd to none even if there was no bacon... Everything was garden fresh or prepared from her garden. Speaking of garden she offered her garden for our enjoyment as well. Had some strawberries. I can't say enough about Joey's hospitality. BTW: she even provided supplies for cleaning up your bike.

PTM from St. Louis on 05/30/2017 09:11 AM:
We stayed in the Birdhouse 5/28. What a pleasant evening. Dinner in Hermann. Clean lodging with lots of charm. Great morning breakfast and conversation. Highly recommended as well.

KC from Austin on 06/04/2017 04:51 PM:
We planned our five day trip around staying at Joey's and also The Frederick Hotel in Boonville. Both were stellar and worth all the accolades you see on this site.

Joey is an amazing cook. Simply the best breakfast of my life! She is so accommodating to our individual dietary needs. Can't wait to stay at Joey's Birdhouse again! ???????

We anticipated thundershowers so were fortunate to stay at Joey's Birdhouse. It was fantastic!!! Joey's hospitality was exceptional. We especially enjoyed the fresh greens from her garden to add to our dinner. Everything was first class. Highly recommend staying there.

I just wanted to second the above comment. My husband and I love staying at Joey's Birdhouse. We have a trip coming up in a couple of weeks. She is the greatest.

Wow! This was our 4th night on the trail. The weather was colder than we'd hoped and the day was long (traveling with two kiddos definitely kept us at a slow pace, it wasn't that the trail itself was that rough). We were floored at Joey's!! The hospitality was excellent, the rooms were sooooooo much fun! We especially loved the old theatre remodeled into a room! Beds were warm and comfortable. Breakfast then next morning was nutritious, absolutely delicious, and local (lots came right out of the garden). We even asked her for a recipe!! I can't recommend this place highly enough!!! We will definitely be back!

5/31/2016 - Great place to stay while doing the Katy Trail! Joey is terrific, the room was clean, and breakfast great. The cold beers in the frig helped especially after a tough day that included a flat tire. There are no restaurants in McKittrick but with advance notice, Joey will cook dinner. I will be back.

We cannot say enough good things about Joey's Birdhouse B&B. Our room was clean and nicely decorated, there was craft beer and fresh orange juice in the fridge, and fresh fruit on the table. It is located right off the trail, so after a 60 mile ride it was nice not to have to pedal even further to reach our destination. Joey is one of the nicest people you will ever meet, and the breakfast she made us was fantastic. Her friend Rich is also very nice, and a great conversationalist. He grew up in the area and is a wealth of knowledge. All future trips we plan along the Katy Trail will include an overnight stay at Joey's Birdhouse.

We stayed at Joey's 10/15/15. Wish we were still there. Clean, comfortable, and Joey is the perfect host. Room was supplied with treats when we arrived and Joey prepared us a delicious dinner and breakfast. Also easy access to Hermann if you want to wander over the river.

Paul KC from Kansas City on 11/03/2015 01:49 AM:
Stayed at Joey's Halloween eve ! Very nice accommodation.Highly recommended will definitely be coming back!

KC from Austin on 11/09/2015 11:50 AM:
One of the highlights of our trip. Their hospitality is astounding! And her cooking, OMG, I had to be dragged away from the breakfast table. If you are really lucky, Rich will take you for a tour of Hermann and McKittrick in his truck. And nice travelers will share fabulous wine with you.

Charming and fun. We loved our rooms. The artwork is great. Joey had home made treats upon our arrival. She made a delicious breakfast for us using many items from her garden. We can hardly wait to come back.

Joey's Bird House B&B was perfect! It is located right off the trail. Joey was very welcoming! My husband and I rode into Hermann for dinner, which was only 2 miles and very bike friendly. For breakfast, Joey had prepared egg/cheese omlets, biscuits, potatoes, and some of her home-grown tomatoes!

Do not miss out on this quaint but comfortable B&B. Joey will do everything possible to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. She'll even take you shopping for any necessities. The rooms come with a fridge loaded with snacks and she provides a very hearty breakfast.

One of the first places we booked for our upcoming trip. The reviews from fellow cyclists are unanimously GREAT.

Our visit on June 12, 2015 to Joey's B&B was such a wonderful experience after a 52 mile ride on the Katy trail. The four of us couldn't asked for a better place to stay. The food, supper and breakfast, was wonderful and the hospitality was greatly appreciated. Thanks again, Joey and Rich

how long did it take you to ride the 52 miles?

Tom Barney from Falling Waters, W.Va. on 08/30/2015 09:43 AM:
To the question concerning how long it took us: We averaged 9 mph with all of our gear and food and water.

Just around the corner from the trail head, quiet, cozy, comfortable. It was getting late, Joey was kind enough to pick us from Portland. Took us to the market to get dinner supplies; she would have cooked it up for us if we had asked/planned. Beers in the fridge were refreshing after a long day on the trail. We were welcomed with her delicious breakfast with ingredients from her garden in the morning.

I stayed at Joey's in late June while riding the Katy Trail. Joey was such a kind and gracious host, she offered me dinner and made a wonderful breakfast. The room was clean, bed was comfortable and there were two beers in the fridge. You can't beat that.

I had the privilege of staying at the Birdhouse after one of the longest wettest days I have ever experienced on the Katy. The room was perfect for a couple of rain soaked riders! Clean and cool with a hot shower and plenty of snacks. Joey couldn't be there but she checked us in over the phone and made sure we had everything we needed. She let us store our bikes in her basement to get them out of the rain and offered rags and chain lube. This is the perfect place for riders who are looking for a comfy room after a day on the trail.

Joey’s Bird House was perfect after a rainy day on the Katy Trail. The room was close to the trail, quiet, comfortable, and very clean. There was a well-stocked frig in addition to Joey cooking us a wonderful breakfast (she would have cooked our dinner if the rain had not delayed us on the trail). There are two rooms right beside each other which made it perfect since we were biking with our daughter and her family. Joey even washed and dried the muddy bike clothing. This is definitely one of the best values on the trail, worth returning to each year.

My extended family stayed here on a Clinton to Machens ride. Very welcoming, great dinner and breakfast. The large room at the Merck was good for the extended family with others in the birdhouse. A relaxing, clean, oasis on the trail.

Wednesday evening looking for a place to eat and spend the night, three senior men got lucky and found Jory's bird house. A town meeting in progress next door welcomed us to a plate of needed food while Joey put fresh sheets on beds for us. Good conversation and a fine filling breakfast got us started the next day. Friendly people and reasonably accommodations were found from Clinton to st Charles.

This was by far my most relaxing night on the trail. Market is a half mile away, and with the kitchen in my room, I had a quiet dinner on the front porch with hummingbirds buzzing by. Joey was a great hostess, serving up a wonderful breakfast next door in her own home. I felt like I was at home!
