Spațiul
(NOTE: Due to rigorous Covid cleaning procedures, we are temporarily going to a 3 night minimum stay)This is an ordinary house striving to allow for the extraordinary in you! Please enjoy it accordingly with respect for all things. A note on the remodeling and preparation for guests: it was done with sustainability in mind at every stage, in the belief that these are good things for peoples bodies and souls, and in the hope that the house would continue to serve in that spirit from here on out. So we'd like to make a request if at all possible that you recycle, reduce single use items and waste and avoid the use of mainstream household chemicals during your stay. Thanks so much.
-solar panel installation reduced bills for all-electric house to virtually nothing in spring, summer and fall.
-existing building materials, such as wood paneling, were re-used wherever possible
-sustainably produced and/or organic mattresses by Saatva and others, organic cotton for linens and towels, and almost entirely fire-retardant free upholstery
-custom furniture in part made from recycled milled urban street trees purchased from Lumberlogs
-natural (but effective!) household cleaning agents used

The house has three levels, the lowest of which is directly accessible from grade. The deck and the upper two levels are reached by stairs, though it is possible with good effort and assistance to reach the deck by wheelchair via the rough gravel path around the outside.
The upper level master bedroom has a queen size bed and a twin bed, a conventional closet (fire extinguisher location) and an adjacent walk-in closet that could be used as a crib room. Access to the master bath with tub is through the master bedroom. The smaller bedroom has a small closet and a sliding glass door and curtain that opens up to the stair railing overlooking the stair. There is now a direct hvac register, but auxiliary heating and cooling is available if needed. The living area with the TV in front of the two bedrooms has a queen size futon sofa. NOTE: The futon is currently unavailable for sleeping. DO NOT MOVE, FRAME MAY BE DAMAGED. (N.A.If you wish to use it for sleeping, refer to the house manual for instructions on folding it out and furnishing it with linens.)
The main level has a bathroom with shower that is directly accessible to the living space. A first aid kit is located in the vanity cabinet. The main level bedroom has a queen size bed and its own small closet. The compact kitchen opens to the breakfast area, and has a pass-thru to the living/dining area. It is fully equipped w/ cutlery, microwave, toaster, range/oven, fridge, dishwasher, toaster, hot-water heater and pour-thru coffee maker. There is another fire extinguisher in the plywood pantry.
The lower level sleeping area has its own locking door that separates it from the entry stair. It consists of an open living area with a small window and behind it a cased opening that leads to the two twin beds in the rear. It is adjacent to a utility/mechanical space (the noise from the furnace will be more pronounced here than elsewhere. Please also be aware that the level of the several closet’s finish here is minimal with plywood and drywall without trim.)
The heating/cooling system is not zoned but rather regulated w/ seasonal register closures, but in general upstairs will be noticeably warmer than downstairs.
Prospective guests should also be aware that the train line at the bottom of the bluff that brought people to this resort area in pre-automobile days are still very active today with passenger and freight trains. Please consider this if you are sensitive to the sounds of intermittent train traffic below. Ear plugs are provided. You will find information about the functioning of the house posted in the photos with the heading 'House Rules'

WIFI: Network – treehouse Password – welcome1
DEPARTURE: Make sure all doors and windows are locked, and lights and appliances are turned off before leaving. Make sure the storm door at entry is latched.
SHEETS: Please leave used beds unmade so it will be clear what sheets, etc. need to be washed, or pull the sheets and pillow cases off the beds.
TOWELS: Please put used towels in laundry room hamper before leaving.
FUTON Operation:
(Strata Wallhugger, the Futon Shop, Organic cotton cover and mattress, online videos): Slightly lift seat deck and pull it out horizontally. Lift the seat deck towards the back deck. Gently pull out the seat legs and set down.
To convert from a bed to a sofa, lift the seat deck towards the back of the frame and tuck the seat deck legs in until they have good contact with the frame. Push the seat deck down toward the ground. Gently using the mattress, pull towards you and using your shin, tuck the seat deck into place.
Futon mattress protector pad, sheets, pillows and blankets will be in the master bedroom closet.
KITCHEN: Manuals to the kitchen appliances are in a folder in the laundry room closet. Recycling bin is the breakfast area. There are a few basic staples in the cupboard, and there may be a bowl of organic fruit or some eggs in the fridge, but don’t count on it – plan to bring what you need.

THERMOSTAT: Thermostat allows temperature range of 50 – 74 heating, and 80 – 74 cooling. If there is a pressing need for temperatures beyond this range, call me and I can adjust.

WOOD STOVE: Please use only if you are familiar with operation. Ensure the damper is open. Close the glass doors after fire is lit. Please use only the prefab fire logs under the adjacent bench. Please limit use to 1 log per night’s stay, it will burn for close to 3 hours and should be entirely sufficient for an enjoyable wood stove experience.
DECK: The deck may be used at all times. Please just be respectful of our neighbors.
There is a lantern by the door and 3 ceiling lights over the covered portion of the deck that are switched from the exterior door to the deck. It’s just minimal lighting to help navigate the entry and the covered deck area. The majority of the deck is lit by ‘nature’ at this time.
FIRE PIT: Feel free to use the fire pit but only if you are familiar with operation. Please do not use to cook food, the drippings can clog the glass beads and burner heads. The propane tank under the pit will need to be connected and disconnected at the appropriate times, and the ignition/supply valve turned to the appropriate settings. Once completely cooled, please put cover back on (recommended at end of evening or in am).
GRILL: There is a basic Weber charcoal grill with supplies available for modest bbq-ing.

WALKING DIRECTIONS TO CASTLEWOOD STATE PARK TRAILS: Go down the gravel entry drive to the mailboxes and turn right at the hairpin in the paved street. At the wooden barrier and signs (put there primarily to keep people from parking there), turn right, easing past the wooden barrier onto the spur trail. Follow the spur trail about 50 yards to the wooden staircase.

Go up the stairs to the left, to follow the trail along the bluff, or go down the stairs and through the tunnel under the train tracks to the trail along the river. The river trail to the left will loop around the park and eventually you will be able to climb the hills that form the north side of the bluff at various locations and return to your starting point.

The trail to your right as you exit the rail tunnel (currently officially ‘off-limits’ but appearing to be used fairly frequently none the less) connects with other less visited parts of Castlewood park, and then with the eventually gravel Al Foster trail mostly in and along the river bottoms and several single track spur trails that lead up into the hills.

Further afield are the mountain bike and canoe access points, and the various parks on both sides of the river strung together by some of the best trails in the St. Louis area, such as the crushed gravel Al Foster Trail and the diverse Chubb Trail which combines river bottom with technically challenging rocky hillsides.

This is why Castlewood State Park is the starting venue for some of the best regional races in the area including:

Castlewood Cup 15k Trail Race, Big River Running, February
Dirty Spokes Mountain Bike Race, City of Ballwin, April
Meramec Marathon and 1/2 Marathon Paddle Race, Alpine Shop, June
Conquer Castlewood Adventure Race, (Triathlon format), August
Trail Run Series, Alpine Shop, August
Skippo 10, 20 and 30k Trail Race, Big River Running, November
Castlewood 8 hr. Adventure Race, Alpine Shop, December

and there are plenty of others utilizing the 'green belt' that Castlewood anchors. In addition, there is a great area network of paved trails not too far away. Heads up, the main trade routes in Castlewood (primarily along the river and on top of the bluff) get very busy on a sunny weekend day.

But even if you never left the house you could relax, commune with nature and feel the calm. The trees in front have squirrel nests almost at eye level, and its fun to watch them come out and play in twilight. The large deck adjoins bird feeders and wild flower beds, and deer are often seen crossing the drive on their way to their outdoors dining room just outside the kitchen window.
