What time is check-in? Expand

Check-in is at 4pm or later. We do allow early check-in (for an additional fee) if housekeeping has time to prepare. We typically cannot guarantee early check-in until the day before your stay.

What time is check-out? Expand

Check-out is at 11am. We do allow late check-out (for an additional fee) if housekeeping has time to prepare for the next guest. We typically cannot guarantee late check-out until the day before your scheduled departure.

Can I bring my pet? Expand

Most of our chalets allow up to two dogs for a $35 per night pet fee, which can be added during the reservation process. If you decide to bring your dog after you confirm your reservation, please let us know and we would be happy to make that change. No cats, please. 1743 Little Bear Lodge and 1247 Sunset Oaks are not pet-friendly (perfect for those with a pet allergy!).

Is wood provided for fireplaces/firepits? Expand

We provide wood for the indoor fireplaces seasonally, from October through March. For the outdoor fire pits, we prefer that guests use fallen wood found on the property. If you need firewood during the off-season months, we suggest Hanny’s Market in Wright City.

Are the indoor fireplaces wood burning or gas? Expand

All fireplaces are wood burning.

How many cars are allowed in driveway? Expand

Innsbrook rule is one car per bedroom plus one.

Are there bathtubs in the chalets? Expand

Yes, most of our chalets have a bathtub. 1716 has a jetted tub. There are a few that don’t have tubs so be sure to let us know if you require one during your stay.

What is your smoking/non-smoking policy? Expand

All Chalets are non-smoking.

Are there “beach towels” or do guests bring their own? Expand

We provide beach towels.

Is there a place to get bags of ice or is ice provided? Expand

Ice can be purchased at the Country Market only during the summer as it’s closed during the winter months.

How big are the lakes? Expand

The lakes are good size. They are all great for paddle boating/boarding, kayaking, fishing, swimming, playing at the beach.

Can I bring my own kayak? Expand


Can I bring a paddle board? Expand


If we go paddle boating, do we have to make a reservation? Expand

There’s either a paddle boat, kayaks, or a canoe (not a pontoon boat) at our lakefront chalets for your exclusive use. There are no boat rentals available at Innsbrook. Even our properties that aren’t on water have kayaks stored at a public beach in Innsbrook for your use.

Are there fishing poles at the chalet? Can we rent them? Expand

The fishing poles and supplies that are at the chalets have been left behind by other renters; we don’t supply these, but you are welcome to use what you find. We suggest picking some up at Wal-Mart if you plan to fish since we don’t provide them. You can pick up bait at the liquor store in Wright City.

Do I need a fishing license? Expand

No license needed.

Are dogs allowed in lake? Expand

Innsbrook requires dogs to be on a leash. At our private lakes, dogs are allowed in the water.

Is there a grill? Expand

Yes, all of our chalets have grills for your use. There are gas grills and propane tanks at most of the chalets. There are a few with charcoal grills and charcoal is provided. 

Do you stock condiments? Expand

No mayo, ketchup, mustard, etc. We do stock spices, sugar, coffee, tea, etc. We’ve found that our guests don’t like to use others’ ketchup.

Where is the closest grocery store? Expand

We recommend bringing all your groceries with you for your convenience. It’s about a 20-minute drive back to a store. If you stop in Wentzville (Exit 208 or 209) on your way from St. Louis, there is a Schnuck’s and a Dierberg’s there. If you’re coming from the west (Columbia), you can exit at 194 for Wal-Mart Supercenter or Kroger. There is also a small convenience store at Innsbrook called the Country Market, near the Main Gate, but it is closed in the winter months.

Is Uber available? Expand

Unfortunately Uber is not yet available at Innsbrook Resort. We would be happy to help you arrange private transportation service through one of the local limousine companies.

We do not provide that service. Please check with the resort.

Burgers, pizza, bar food. Menu is online.
