Cottages at Cedar Creek by LINK Architecture New Haven, Missouri

The event space and cottages at Cedar Creek in New Haven, Missouri are designed as “rustic modernism” by Tom McGrath of LINK Architecture. Situated on 200 acres in the Missouri wine growing region outside of St. Louis, the cottages and event hall are central to the mission of the resort by offering modern amenities with rustic charm.

Cedar Creek has always been a place to be shared with others, a place that was intended to facilitate connection among the people who visit it. And though the outside world has changed remarkably in the last two centuries since the first formal purchase of Cedar Creek, somehow each new owner has sought to respectfully and thoughtfully preserve the rich legacy and inherent beauty of the estate while still updating it to meet the needs of the time.

Cedar Creek in New Haven, Missouri (about an hour outside St. Louis) is a rustic modern retreat offering modern amenities and rustic charm. The cottages, event space and ceremony lawn serve as the center of the resort, where guests are encouraged to relax and connect with one another. The property was purchased by the current owners in 1978 and has been updated over time to meet changing needs. The project seeks to honor the past while still providing modern amenities as a kind of rustic cottage modernism. The layout of the structures reflects the estate’s deep connection with its site, while providing a range of spaces and services for socializing and hosting events.

Celebrate the uniquely American spirit of collaboration and community among friends, partners, and family at Cedar Creek Resort in New Haven, Missouri. Cottages and event space is designed by Tom McGrath of LINK Architecture, with rustic charm as well as modern amenities. Enjoy the views from your balconies or from a fire pit on the deck overlooking the rolling hills and vineyards, as well as the bluffs of the Missouri River beyond.
