Guestbook comments from the manager

Words can not begin to express the wonderful time my family had being together in your amazing home! Everything was perfect and the surroundings, breath taking! I don't believe I could have found anything more enjoyable and relaxing. We take with us so many great memories and pictures. Everyone is already hoping we do this again next year and make it a family tradition! Thanks for everything!

Wonderful Family Retreat

  • 4 of 5
This was a beautiful stay over Thanksgiving for our family gathering! Very peaceful time. A great thing about the property is it is only one hour away from St. Louis Airport, so it made it easy for relatives flying in and out. The house itself is marvelous, with plenty of room, and it is very bright for a home of this style. We got a lot of use out of the fireplace stove and the lake. It also lent itself to great times for the outdoorsy types in our family, with the large lake area and privacy, and our fishing relatives. The kids loved the paddle boats and kayaks. We will be coming back, and thank you Donna for being a great owner, and answering all my questions! The Cosman Family from Iowa.

My husband and I got married here about two months ago and it was perfect. Our guests were just blown away by the property. Donna was wonderful and extremely accommodating. We hope to go back soon for a getaway!

Another Fun Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd time coming here. Our family had a blast again. The new paddle boats were a hit. The kids caught a ton of fish and enjoyed throwing them back. We cooked all our meals this time outside, love the gas kitchen. Well be back again next year.

Fantastic Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
This house reminded me of being in the Wisconsin Dells. It was so vintage yet modern at the same time. The owner was very accessible and accommodating. It's an amazing party house. My guests were so impressed. We stayed during a snowy, icy weekend, so that posed a challenge with the long country lane, but it worked out. Secluded and special. Very romantic and elegant. Clean and beautiful. The Buck stove fireplace was perfect! Would LOVE to rent this house in the summertime. An unforgettable weekend.

From the Owner

This property is the home where my husband and I raised our children, when they grew up and moved out, I saw that we were not here as much and it's soooo beautiful to leave unattended, so I asked my husband if he would mind if we shared it with others. He agreed and the first year the response was soooo good that after I lost my husband, it's what kept me going:-) Everyone that stays here loves it, and many return year after year!!!

From the Owner

As soon as your drive down the driveway between the manicured fields to the woods by the lake and then approach the home, you feel a sense of calmness. When you enter the foyer into the great room you then receive the WOW factor and the view is absolutely fabulous! Different words everyday can describe the view and the feeling, well, it's sometimes indescribable!! I look forward to providing this accommodation that you will long remember:-)
