People Can’t Get Enough Of This Extremely Cozy And Rustic Cabin

  • 4 min read

The Bross Brothers Cabin, Cottleville, Missouri is a cabin rich in history. It was built in the early 1800s as a settlement near the Dardenne. In 1804, there was a country store, wagon repair shop and two small hotels. Two grist mills were also in operation where wheat and corn were processed into flour and meal. The Boonslick Trail brought many travelers west, including many stagecoaches, wagon trains, and pony express riders. This helped to grow the settlement. In 1839, Cottleville was given the name of the settlement. It grew to 500 people in 1860.


The Bross brothers owned a successful Blacksmith shop in the middle of town and lived next door to this log cabin. They lived in the cabin and added the back in 1877. During the remodel, the logs were hidden under the siding and protected from the elements. This was forgotten until recently when the property was bought and the log cabin removed. Before dismantling the cabin, each log was carefully tagged. The logs were then stored until Glenn and Cheryl Hill purchased the property again. They rebuilt the log cabin using the same logs and in the same layout.

This vacation rental has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It is an iconic log cabin that was restored and brought back to life by the Cottleville community.
