Making a reservation
Click on the “Reservations” tab and complete the information requested. Press the “Send” button. An email reply with the name of your reserved hermitage, the dates/times of your arrival and departure, plus other information about your stay will be sent to you usually within 24 hours.
On the day of your arrival, we plan to meet you when you come on the property. If you are running late or need assistance call 314-974-6900.
Out of respect for all of our guests we ask no animals be brought on the property.
Food is not available onsite for purchase. Guests bring their own food for their visits. Each hermitage has a small kitchen with a refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, hot plate, small pot, toaster, utensils, and dinnerware. It’s best to bring simple foods to heat in the microwave oven. Stores and restaurants are nearby.
Bring comfortable clothing for indoors and outdoors. Closed-toe shoes or boots are recommended as our walking paths and stairs are gravel. Also bring personal items that you require for your stay.
Access to hermitages
Vision of Peace is located on a high bluff above the Mississippi river in a rustic, heavily wooded area. Much of the property is hilly with access to the hermitages on uneven gravel paths and stairways. There is no vehicle transport around the property. Access from the parking lot to the hermitages is by foot. This means carrying luggage and other items brought for individual use. Pack light! Bring less!
The rate to reserve a hermitage is $50 per night. The weekly rate (7 days, 6 nights) is $250. A hermitage may be reserved for use during the day at the same $50 rate.
We request a 50% deposit be made soon after you receive an email from us with your reservation information. A reservation is not confirmed until we receive a deposit or full payment. Payments can be made by PayPal on our website using the “Pay Now” link, or by mailing a check to: Vision of Peace, 1000 Abbey Lane, Pevely, MO 63070.
