Weston Mo.

Weston, Mo. was our last stop and think we left the best for last. I discovered this town through a great little web site called Small town gems. It is indeed a very quaint little town with a most unusual B&B called....Inn at Weston Landing. They have four themed rooms available to rent and I choose the Andrew O'mallley room. I have never experienced something like this before.

Billed as a lesson in  Irish History and indeed it was. I had already seen pictures of the room but my hubby walked into the bathroom and said..."You have to come see this".

Well, I took lots of pictures and am excited to share them with you.
 An old pedal sewing machine made into a sink.

 Creation of a shower

 A little collection of mugs and right next to it.....

 As you enter the room is this old cart with a extra quilt but trust me...the one on the bed was very sufficient....





 and beautiful.


 Old time dresser in the corner and see that light to the right?







   There was one on each side of the bed and they lit up top or bottom or both.

 Cozy little sitting area and guess what??? There was a Irish cook book on the table:)


The biggest highlight was the fireplace (not a real one)


But what a view a night.....

Sitting in the rocking chairs in front of it and just taking it all in. No phone and no T.V.

The hostess was the new owner and she was very sweet. We were her only quests for the evening so when we told her we didn't do stairs very well (to go to the parlor for morning coffee) she offered to bring it right to our door at whatever time we wanted:) Sure enough a pot of hot coffee and freshly baked scones greeted us a 6:00 A.M. with a wonderful breakfast to follow.
It was late in their season so the gardens were being let go but there were still flowers and glimpses of the beauty that abounds....


 House across the street from the Inn

When you first come into this town you actually come through the housing section so again my handy gps lead us to the right spot and we were pleasantly surprised to find this charming little down town.




and this little buggy parked on the street



 We are early risers so most of the little shops were closed but what a pretty setting.

We also discovered the town cat. I didn't get a picture !@#@#%$#^$^$% but she came right to us when we sat down on a bench for a little scratch. You need to read about the B&B...it was originally a ice house and the other rooms were just as impressive. Wish now I would have asked to see them since they weren't occupied.

What a great trip we had!

What a wonderful place you found!!! Weston, MO! I am going to have to remember that! I loved looking at the photos - taking in every detail. SO clever to make a sink stand from the old sewing machine. Very creative people!! Thanks for sharing your lovely trip!
