When your desire is to truly escape from the fast pace of modern life, make reservations at a Ste. Genevieve, Missouri bed and breakfast. This historic French Colonial village in Southeast Missouri is brimming with history and unique attractions and activities. Spend time exploring the large concentration of French Colonial buildings, the local museum, and St. Genevieve’s historic district, which is home to a large variety of antique and specialty shops, including the Charleville Vineyard Tasting Room & Gift Shop. To sample more Saint Genevieve County wines, be sure to visit such wineries as Chaumette Vineyards Winery & Grapevine Grill, Charleville Vineyard & Microbrewery, Crown Valley Winery and others. For a unique experience, an option is a trip to the National Tiger Sanctuary in nearby Bloomsdale, MO. This sanctuary provides a home for captive tigers and offers various educational tours. Finally, there is no shortage of outdoor adventures to be had in the Ste. Genevieve area. For example, Hawn State Park is a beautiful, 5,000-acre park filled with pine and oak forests, sandstone bluffs and crystal clear streams. This park offers hiking, picnicking, bird watching and more. You might also enjoy exploring the two-mile trail that winds through the Pickle Springs Natural Area. This trail is called the "Trail Through Time" and it takes visitors to the many geologic wonders carved in the sandstone and past sparkling streams, cool canyons and spectacular bluff views. After a day filled with activity, unwind in the comfortable accommodations of a BBIM-inspected bed and breakfast inn: the perfect alternative to a conventional Sainte Genevieve, MO hotel.
