Sadly the Peers Store closed a few years ago but last summer was re-opened by an amazing organization called The Katy Land Trust, dedicated to preserving the farm and forest lands along the Katy Trail. The store is open from noon to 4 on Saturdays and Sundays April through October. Old time music groups always play on the porch and it features local art, fun gift items, snacks and ice cream!

Have not been there in years but stopped on Saturday and agree with your comments. They also told me they are going to be open Mon. Aug. 21st, 2017 11-2 pm for the Solar Eclipse Event.

Peers store is still a must see/stay place. Barb and Amy go all out to make you feel welcome and cared for. Sunday breakfast was a plus this time and the breakfast sandwiches are still "the bomb". Any KATY trip we take will most certainly include a stay at the Peers Store. Thank you Barb again for your company and hospitality. May the Lord Bless and prosper your business in ways that surprise you.

Our night at the Peers Store was a highlight of the trip! Barb took excellent care of us. The bathroom is a little antiquated but everything was very clean. The rooms were spotless and the beds were perfect. It made for a nice evening after our ride to just open all the windows, pour a drink, and listen to the town go to sleep. In the morning we shared coffee and conversation with the locals along with s couple of Barb's famous breakfast sandwiches. The Peers Store will certainly be a part of our future trips across the Katy!

June 20, 2010- Peers Store was our first stop on our journey to ride the entire Katy Trail from St. Charles to Clinton. Barb was the sweetest hostess and treated you like family! Accommodations were above the historical store that has been in the family throughout a few generations. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Since we were traveling light, we needed to hand-wash our biking clothes each night; Barb had the perfect setup to line dry your clothes overnight and to my surprise they were dry the next morning. Barb told us to make ourselves at home; this was a great help as we were able to use her freezers to freeze our 9 water bottles for the next day’s ride. The next morning Barb made some fabulous breakfast sandwiches which we enjoyed while visiting with Barb and the regular customers. We highly recommend PEERS STORE and will most definitely spend the night again. THANKS BARB!

I was very surprised to see Peers on this site considering it was so small but I loved it so much. I had a terrible time in Treloar (my Camelbak was empty, and I was thirsty) and I thought the next drinking fountain would be in Marthasville. I stopped by the Peers Grocery Store and was greeted by a very nice woman. She filled up my camelbak for free and I bought a gatorade. I am so impressed by the hospitality in this town that I'll be doing my next sportsdrink/snack stop on the Katy at Peer's Grocery store again!

After a day biking the Katy Trail, Maggie and George graciously made us feel welcome in their beautiful home. Maggie greeted me with a cold beer as I had requested. The gourmet salad and pasta dinner after a much needed shower on the deck was delicious. (The wine from the cellar was not bad either!)The breakfast the next morning was more than we expected-the egg casserole fresh from their amusing chickens! The accomodations were clean and the described "loft" area perfect for a family stay and much nicer than anticipated. Next year when my daughter and I do this again we will plan our trip around our stay at Concord Hill B&B. Thanks Maggie, George, and dog Jesse, for making our biking trip memorable!

Arrived midday on Sunday November 8 (HOT DAY-Yeah!)only to find store had closed. While peeking in to view condition, store owner opened up the door and asked if we wanted to come in. I marveled at the old-timey look and feel of the place and we were overjoyed to get COLD ice cream and soda. Store owner said the place had been a store for MANY years. She was also well-informed of trail's amenities and interesting stops. Many thanks to her for her kindness and advice. Please stop and give her your business when you come through the area.

Oct. 4/09 Peers Store is a must stop for any who appreciate history, hospitality, and the out of the ordinary. Barb is one fantastic hostess. She and her store bring you back to a time when a handshake was better than a contract. Her culinary skills and last minute flexability saved us from a sure night of hunger for want of real food. The dinner plans were formulated via cell phone as we headed West. We had been pedaling all day against the wind and seeing the store to the North of the trail was a very welcome sight. Do not expect Hilton accomodations but the ambiance experienced is not found a Hilton either. You will enjoy the clean warm rooms and breakfast with the "regulars" is a plus also. Thank you Barb for a great stay. We will be back if you will have us.

I recently stayed 2 separate nights in the room above the store on a round trip...Barb and Amy were very gracious and the $45/night rate kept me within my budget...the breakfast sandwich was a great way to start each morning...I highly recommend it!!

R. Smith from Harrisonville, MO on 07/23/2009 11:07 AM:
I spent the night at the store this past week with my son in one of their upstairs rooms. My main attraction was the affordable price that offered shelter, a soft bed, air-conditioned comfort, and a sandwich to start us out the next morning. I am thankful for the kindness that the whole business showed us, plus we were able to get a ride to the next town because we took on more than we could handle when my son and I started out on this wonderful bike trail. Thanks to Barb for her hospitality and service.



P.S. I offered money to the gentleman who drove us back up the trail on that rainy Tuesday.

 
Cvrz from St Peters on 07/23/2009 11:18 PM:
Yes I love that place! I recently stopped in again for lunch and got the special which was Green Beans and Sausage...and inexpensive and delicious! They were warm and friendly people, and the store is a neat time capsule to browse about in and get supplies. I'm planning to try an overnighter there soon.

Stopped in Peers just before a hail storm began. Four of us on the trip, only two made it to Peers grocery in time. We ate some great pizza while talking with the girl running the place while our friends were held up under a boat club house during the storm. Store is great, one of those unique visits on the Katy Trail. I'd stop whether you need something or not.

Staying at Concord Hills is like being with relatives...that you really like! We took a nap after our days ride but awoke to the aroma of a great pasta dinner. We had our dinner on the porch, listened to live bluegrass music and were sent on our way in the morning with a more than filling breakfast. Relaxed, low key and comfortable, these owners seem to enjoy their guests and much as we enjoyed them.

We stayed here on 5-22-09. Wow! Where Maggie and George great!! They picked us and our bikes up at the bottom of the hill. That evening, they fixed us a great pasta dinner with salad. That night, we were entertained by George and his bluegrass band!! Then, the next morning, the breakfast included bacon, sausage, eggs, toast, potatoes, juice and coffee! Great hosts!! We will definately stay there again when we bike the Katy Trail. Thanks!! :-)

My ABSOLUTE favorite establishment on the entire KATY Trail! The ambiance, the service, the accomodations, the history....all represent a time when life was much simpler. If your ride takes you to or through this area, DO NOT pass up the opportunity to experience this true slice of Americana.

I agree on your comments about Peers store. I found the place while looking for lunch and a place out of the rain in May this year. Soup and a sandwich and what appeared to be most of the neighbors in the area. I would recommend this stop to anyone riding the trail.(pass on the coffee).

Sounds like a place to visit on my trip this month. Where is Peers? I don't see it on the map.

It's between Treloar and Marthasville. Here's a web page with Peers info. If you visit the store, be sure to ask about the flood of '93 - some interesting stories.

Very nice people, offered pork-burger platters during the DRN trail ride. It's definitely worth the stop.

 
JasonA from Omaha, NE on 10/15/2008 05:54 PM:
The folks at Peers were very helpful to me for my recent overnight stay. I felt welcomed, trusted, and appreciated. A word of caution: the accommodations are spartan. The old-timey bed and squeaky ceiling fan were bothersome, but I put my sleeping bag on the floor in front of a box fan and slept like a baby. I didn't turn on the TV in the room, not even to watch the one movie in their video collection. The bathroom was the most unimpressive - a tub with a hand sprayer, not much water pressure and not much hot water. You aren't allowed to flush your toilet paper because it will clog up the pipes. But with all that said, if all you need is a place to sleep and a breakfast sandwich, do you really need to spend $60 more for a B&B?

 
DICK GABRIEL from Marietta, GA on 10/17/2008 10:42 AM:
We did not spent the nigth at Peers store on our Katy ride last month, but we did eat lunch there (very good), and took a look at the room. We plan to stay on our next trip. Look, this place is decades older than ANYONE riding the trail, so they may have issues with the piping and/or septic system. If you've been on a mission trip to a third world country, not flushing your potty paper is no big deal. If you want a mint and USA Today, stay at the fancy hotels in St. Louis. If you want to experience a bit of history stay at Peers Store!

 
patty from new york from waterville, ny on 10/18/2008 05:12 PM:
Ditto Peers store as a must stop on the trail. I pulled up there on a 90-plus degree day in late July this summer and was welcomed like an old friend. Well worth the stop and stay overnight if possible.

 
JasonA from Omaha, NE on 10/22/2008 12:29 PM:
I wasn't going on a mission trip to a third-world country, I was in Missouri, where I'd like to flush a big wad of toilet paper. It wasn't a problem for me, I didn't have to go. But I didn't see any comments here about what to expect, and I figure I'm doing other trail users a favor by telling them how it is. Looks like there's some pretty fancy hotels in Marietta, too.

Peers Store was awesome. It's a railroad era building with a ton of history. Barb, the owner, operates a small grocery store. In addition, she has a room above the store which she rents for an extremely reasonable rate. A friend and I stayed overnight on 10-16-2008. Brittany, the young lady behind the counter, has a fantastic personality. Barb could not have been more accommodating. She and Brittany are, without a doubt, the friendliest people on the trail.

This place has fairly new owners Maggie and George. We had picked up steaks at Loutre Market which we grilled on their grill, while Maggie made us a salad and shared a bottle of wine, that we picked up in Herman. After dinner we sat on the porch swing and watched the hummingbirds and enjoyed the scenery. Then after dark we relaxed in the hot tub under the stars. We had a wonderful breakfast included fried potatoes with eggs, plus. This was our last night on the trail and the best night we had. Thank you Maggie (George, we are looking forward to meeting you next time.)

We ate lunch at the Peers Store. The young woman made us a sandwich that was almost too big to eat. The picnic table outside was covered with a camouflage net that made for a pleasant place to eat. They're good people and it's a good place to stock up on snacks.

The room upstairs has 2 beds and can be reserved for $45 and the room next to it for another $5. We plan to stay there on our next trip. Definately worth the stop.

My 11 year old daughter and I just completed a Jeff City to St. Louis trip last week in two legs

and overnighted at Peers. It's a great place, and I highly recommend it! If you are looking for

plush pampering such as one might expect in the $100+/night B&Bs, this is not the place for

you. But, if you're looking for a clean, spacious room, filling breakfast, and wonderful

hospitality at a reasonable price, do not hesitate to book with Barb.

While riding the trail we accidentally left a cell phone outside the Peers store. Barb found it, went the "extra mile" to track us down and even drove to the next town to deliver the phone. She is very kind and would accept nothing in return. Please patronize this store! Thanks again.

I got caught in a spring downpour down the trail from Peers, called ahead and reserved a room at the store. The day and two nights I spent drying out there were like old home week. The ladies treated me like family. The food is basic and the bathroom spartan, but the hospitality makes it a must-stay every trip in the future for me.

Peers is between Marthasville and Treloar. You can find some additional information and photos on the Peers page. You don't see it in the map at the top of the page because I had to leave out a few of the smaller towns, to keep the map from getting too crowded. The little store there is a great place to visit, and the proprietor has many interesting stories.

We stayed at the Concord Hill B&B after a long ride on the Katy Trail. We had ridden over 70 miles, it was getting late, and we were ready for the hot tub when we got there! They were extremely nice, and actually drove and picked up our dinner (at the only restaurant open, in a nearby town) while we relaxed in the hot tub. The breakfast the next morning was outstanding also.

My husband and I stayed here over the summer and I was very impressed. The room was very cozy(homelike). The Breakfast was the best yet but better than all was the place. The store has pretty much anything you could need from Deli sandwichs, ice cream,lunch specials, soda and pizza. Theres something for everyone and after a long trail ride it's so nice to come into the store and get something cold to drink and some food and not have to go to a bar. Her (Barb's) prices are very reasonable food and room and she is a very knowledgable women. She can carry on a conversation very well. She told my husband and I how the store has been around since 1800's and has been through many many floods and i think that is a reason it is so special. If your ever in the area and need a place to stay i reccommend Peers Store for the caring people, reasonablr prices and you won't leave without learning something new.

I had a nice visit today with Barb, the lady who runs Peers Store (at mile 80, between Treloar and Marthasville). She has lots of interesting stories about the store (which has been in her family for decades), the building (which was built in the late 1800s), the little building next door (which has been a school, a bar, a home, a feed store, and more...) and the town of Peers (which was underwater during the flood of '93, even though the river is over a mile away). Save some time to enjoy chatting with Barb at the Peers Store.

Jamie and Dan A from St Louis, MO on 10/26/2004 02:53 PM:
This was a nice B & B. We have never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast before but this will set a high standard for us. For less than $100 for the night you get to stay in a warm bed, soak in a hot tub and meet some great people (Vicki and Tom). This was great after a long days ride on the trail.
