Aerie's is located in historic 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, about forty minutes from Lambert STL Airport, and less than two hours from Springfield, Illinois.
If you are checking in for lodging or zipline tours, our new registration office, The Landing at Aerie's Resort, is conveniently located in downtown Grafton, 14 West Main Street, at the intersection of Main (Route 100) and Market (Route 3), directly across from Grove Memorial Park. At this location you can also catch a free shuttle to the Winery and the Terrace.
If you'd rather drive to the Winery, from Main Street in downtown Grafton turn right at Mulberry Street and head up the hill. After a short but steep climb, the road levels out a bit. You'll see our Villa's on the right, and our newly-planted vineyard just ahead. At this point you're on our property, and Mulberry becomes Timber Ridge Drive. Stay the course, on up the winding blacktop road, up to the very top of the hill.
Bear right at the very top and continue a short distance, passing a few of our cottages on either side of the road. When you reach the suites (700's) on the right, the road opens up to a parking lot shared by the Terrace on the right and the Winery just ahead. Bear left to park in the lot. The road continues around the front of the Winery, and eventually out onto the main drive (hang a left to head back down the hill).
The Terrace houses our banquet center on the top floor, with three levels of hotel rooms on the west side, and our gift shop on the lower front side facing the Winery. If you're checking into a lower level Terrace room (611-618), note that there's limited angle parking on the roadside opposite these rooms.
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). Keep in mind that some GPS/map apps have trouble giving accurate directions to our off-the-beaten-path location.
