Glenrich Bed and Breakfast is locted in the middle of downtown Washington, Missouri. This area is in the middle of wine country. About 3 miles to the East is the Highway 94 Weinstrasse. Along the route there are about 8 wineries, each with a different personality. You can take cellar tours, listen to live music on the weekends, have a nice outdoor meal, and have free tastes of the wines they produce.
To the West is the Highway 100 Wine Road. Along this stretch of this highway are about 6 wineries with similar offerings as mentioned above. The historic town of Hermann Missouri offers a variety of tourist venues for you to enjoy.
Come join us on the covered front porch and watch the trains and the river roll by.
The beautiful Katy Trail State Park is about 3 miles away from our home. It is a hiking/biking paradise and a wonderful retreat for all. The Katy Trail was formed because of the Rails to Trails Act which allowed abandoned railroad tracks to be removed and the remaining trailbed to be used by hikers and bikers. There are several trailheads where you can park and unload your equipment. Some have bike rentals available.
One of our favorite activities is to ride to the small town of Treloar and have lunch at the Bar & Grill which is located right on the trail. There are also some wineries that you can walk to from the trail. The trail is very flat and is easy riding.
