Getting Here


Overlooking the confluence of the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers, Aerie's is located in Grafton, Illinois, at the northwest end of the beautiful Meeting of the Great Rivers National Scenic Byway, aka the Great River Road.

We're just fifty minutes from downtown St. Louis, Missouri, and about forty minutes from Lambert STL Airport. If you're in the Land of Lincoln, we're less than two hours from Springfield, Illinois. 

On the map below, use the navigation tools on the left to zoom in/out and move the map (you can also "grab & drag" it). Google Maps hasn't quite found our off-the-beaten-path location, but it'll get you close. Our GPS coordinates are N38° 58’ 32” W090° 26’ 35”.

From Main Street in downtown Grafton, turn right on Mulberry Street, which becomes Timber Ridge Drive when you pass our villas on the right. Climb the winding blacktop road to the top of the hill; Aerie's Lodge is at the peak. Registration for lodging and zipline tours is in the lodge office, and tours begin at the "Baby Bear" platform adjacent to the lodge parking lot. Aerie's Winery is a short distance further down Timber Ridge Drive. Our cottages and suites are perched along the ridge between the lodge and winery.
