It's hard to be this close to St. Louis yet still be private. But, that's exactly how I'd describe a cabin hidden on a hillside near Defiance, Missouri that includes a private lake and horses.

I gotta say that for a 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom cabin, this looks like a spacious place to me. I found this hillside cabin on 43 acres near Defiance, Missouri on Airbnb. Here's a little bit of how the host describes this cabin:

this 1-bedroom, 1-bath cabin in the heart of wine country is the perfect place to unplug and reconnect with nature! Immersed in lush woodlands, the Defiance vacation rental comes with all the amenities needed for a peaceful retreat, including a fishing lake, resident horses, and a fully equipped kitchen. Watch the sunrise over the hills from the porch swing before venturing off to Katy Trail, and later, head to Chandler Hill Vineyards located just minutes away

It's beautiful Missouri country. That's for sure.

The asking price of $163 per night sounds more than fair when you consider how close you are to the vineyard and St. Louis for that matter. If you have any plans for a staycation and want to do big city things, this seems like an interesting option.

The listing on Airbnb features even more pics, updates and availability information. The horses are waiting.
