John and Shirley Gault from Marshall, Missouri on 6/25/2005 8:52:19 AM:
On a 4 day round trip from Hartsburg to St. Charles we spent two very enjoyable nights (one going, one coming) in Penrod's View guest house. Because it was hot we started our trips early and arrived at the guesthouse about noon enjoying the waiting snack and cool drinks. We enjoyed eating on the wraparond porch. We made the 5 min bike trip to the well stocked grocery store and ate our supper on top of the hill as well. We traveled about 60 miles both days and still were able to make it up to the top of the hill but we must confess we walked our tandem up the somewhat steep and uneven road. We liked having the cold drinks ready when we arrived and having the good baked goods brought over in the evening so we could leave when we wished. We declined the offer of rides to Hermann. We enjoyed the wine they furnished. If you have any questions you may contact us at email@example.com.
