Splash or paddle. Swim in the Inn's three acre spring-fed lake or take a leisurely row in one of the authentic Nantucket dingys tied up at the wharf (right next to your reading chair!). Frolic in Brazil Creek as it meanders through the Inn property or wade it to explore the largest cave in Washington County.

Pedal and pump. Country roads invite exploration. Bicycles are available to all guests. You select an easy or challenging route on Berryman Trail for your ride through the beautiful and ever-changing landscape.

Float. The Huzzah, Cortois and Meramec Rivers and is a floater's paradise, and only 10 minutes away.

Ride or drive. Riding stables and a golf course are within 15 minutes of the Bailey's Inn gates.
