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-half mile to the east lie Wine Country Gardens and The Trail Smokehouse.  

Other attractions close by include additional family-owned wineries in Agusta. Other nearby attractions are the Weldon Springs Conservation area with miles of hiking and biking trails, Klondike Park, 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 boutique bed and breakfast located in the heart of Defiance -- the gateway to Missouri’s Historic Wine Region which boasts the nation’s first viticultural area (AVA). There is off-street parking to the side of the building, and each bedroom has its own private bathroom as well as 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.

Mornings will make you "rethink" breakfast, and you will definitely have your appetite and palate satisfied!  Our breakfast menus are created from local farm-fresh products and are not your everyday breakfasts.  Eat local... Eat amazing!

About Us

We love the area of Defiance – the hiking trails, the biking trails, and all of the area attractions. The beauty and nature of the region drew us here, and we’re sure that’s why visitors want to come here as well.  When we decided to open our Inn, we wanted to accomplish a few things: provide a great overnight experience for our guests, serve products that are local, and be respectful to the environment.
