Tara Point Inn & Cottages
A cozy B&B perched above a magnificent natural panorama.
This B&B is located on a bluff 300 feet above the Great River Road along the Mississippi River. It offers a view of the river valley that will not soon be forgotten. On a clear day, you can see all the way through the western side of the St. Louis River Arch. Those with a fear of heights might find themselves overwhelmed by both the location and the vistas. The property was built as a family home, with a guest wing that was soon transformed into a bed-and-breakfast. In addition to the rooms, cottages offer seclusion and privacy. Guests enjoy breakfast in the Main House surrounded by songbirds, waterfowl and eagles --- encased in glass, the lovely breakfast room offers indoor comfort with great outdoor views. Nearby hiking trails and wineries draw summer travelers, while autumn is popular with weekenders wanting to watch the leaves change color in the surrounding trees. This property does not accept credit cards, only cash, check or money order.
