About Celia Homsher

We bought this wonderful log home as our family get-away, close to home, about 15 years ago. We have so many wonderful family memories with our kids growing up, adventures out on the river (swimming, boating, waterskiing), entertaining friends... Our kids are now grown and we were not using our lovely cabin as much, so we decided to share it with other people so that they can create and enjoy fun memories of vacations as well. If you want a peaceful setting, winter or summer, this is it! Nature surrounds the cabin and is fun to watch from the deck. Bald Eagles and Golden eagles abound Dec-Feb! Deer visit year-round. Fishing is fun in the summer too....or just relax and barbeque on the deck with the fabulous view.

Celia Homsher purchased this house in 2000

Why Celia Homsher chose O'Fallon

We love the cabin because while it is secluded, peaceful, and off the beaten path, it is only 15 minutes to get to grocery stores/shopping/entertainment.

Beautiful sunrises, sunsets and view of river and water fowl off deck

  • 4 of 5

Circuit on back wall in game room does not work. Breaker says dead. Various lamps on tables with nowhere to plug in? Water has high sulpher smell. Bring bottled water and ice. To use downstairs bathroom you have to stand in front of a deer butt. A little annoying Other than that nice stay..

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin, very secluded right on the river. It was really pretty in the fall with the trees! Owners were very accommodating and helpful and check-in was a breeze. Highly recommend if you want to get away from it all, but still want to be close to grocery store, attractions, etc. Bring your own towels if you want to use the hot tub. 2 bath towels are provided in each bathroom but you can't use them outside.

Another Great Weekend at the Cabin

  • 5 of 5

A 3-day weekend trip to the cabin in November has become an annual tradition for us over the past several years. It is a great get-away spot that is close to town but provides a feeling of isolation. It is very peaceful and relaxing. The cabin is always clean and comfortable. For us, it is a perfect place to unwind. We love being there.
