The Merry House Inn

Welcome to the Merry House Inn

Nestled in the heart of Defiance⁠—the Gateway to Missouri’s Premiere Wine Region⁠—the Merry House Inn has gone through a complete renovation with no expense spared in providing all the modern conveniences and luxury that discriminating travelers today expect. High-count linens, premium king mattresses, spa-like bathrooms, gas fireplaces, and Beekman 1802 bath products are just a few of the amenities that have been added.

Sit in the newly renovated expansive sunroom sipping a cup of coffee or enjoy a glass of wine. Relax by the double-sided wood-burning fireplace. Check out the areas surrounding the Inn where you will find a large wraparound porch and covered deck.
