Welcome to The Inn at Defiance
Relax… Unwind… In Wine Country
Enjoy a respite from a busy day in Missouri’s Wine Region. The Inn is conveniently located near many of the area’s highlights. One block south is the Katy Trail – Missouri’s 237-mile bicycling and hiking trail as well as the Katy Bike Rental, The Defiance Roadhouse Restaurant, Robin’s Nest on the Katy Trail, and Terry & Kathy’s Tavern.
Across the street to the west is the Yellow Farmhouse Winery, further west one mile is Sugar Creek winery, a little over one mile north is Chandler Hill Vineyards, and approximately one mile to the east lie Wine Country Gardens and The Trail Smokehouse.
Other attractions close by are the Weldon Springs Conservation area with miles of hiking and biking trails, the historic Daniel Boone Home, and within a twenty-minute drive are shopping meccas: historic St. Charles Main Street and two large outlet malls – Taubman Prestige and St. Louis Premium Outlets. Enjoy playing at one of three local golf courses nearby -- Whitmoor Country Club, Persimmon Woods Golf Club, or the Missouri Bluffs Golf Club.
The Inn at Defiance is a four-bedroom Inn located in the heart of Defiance -- the gateway to Missouri’s and the nation’s first viticultural region. There is off-street parking to the side of the building, and each room has its own entrance off of our wrap-around porch for added privacy.
After checking in, relax in the hot tub in our four-seasons room, rewind with a refreshment in our lounge, or take a breather in our gathering place in front of the wood-burning fireplace. In hospitable weather, sip a coffee on the porch or on our large covered deck.
