About the Owner

I started out at 15 being a hostess at a restaurant, for college I attended a travel academy, soon after had 2 beautiful bright children, ran a mechanical contracting company with my husband for 24 years, married 26 years to be widowed at a early age, and now once again a hostess to my own properties that I share with Wonderful Vacationers from all over the world:-)

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!

Another Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As always, Another Great Time. My family fly's in once a year each summer. We used to go to Branson or the Lake of the Ozarks. This is our 3rd year staying here. The amenities keep the entire family busy, rain or shine. The paddle boats and kayaks are a hit as always. The property is very well kept and we cant wait to come next year. We had a few special requests and Donna made it all happen including the good weather we requested.

My first stay at Ms D. Longs private home was April 2015 and came back often, last time was May 2016. She is the host of host, she can read your mind as what your needs may be. I prefer the winter months. Waking up and looking out over the lake and watching the mist rise is breath taking. The evenings in front of the massive fireplace is so romantic, I recommend Ms Longs home for any occasion. I fell in love with her home and feel in love there as well..

Wonderful vacation for our enttire family!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Donna for sharing your Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home with us for our week's vacation. Nine of us enjoyed fishing, swimming, grilling, hiking, setting off fireworks, playing piano, and bonding as a family. Even with a couple days of rain, there was always something to do. The only times we left were for a Cardinal Baseball game, and shopping. Thanks again; you are an awesome hostess! We hope to return!

Beautiful, private getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week at this beautiful property. The pool, lake with the kayaks , and the large outdoor areas were wonderful. Grandchildren ranging in age 8 to 23 spent many hours using the pool and lake. We drove to downtown St. Louis to visit the zoo, science station, Grants Farm, a Cardinals game, and a must visit to the City Museum!,and a new, close by attraction, Purina Farms. However it was always nice to get back to the peacefulness at the house.

Shopping for groceries was convenient at the nearby Super Walmart.

Donna Long was wonderful about getting us anything we asked for, and called to check how things were going.

We would recommend this for a great family vacation.

Beautiful Wedding Location

  • 5 of 5

Donna was fantastic from the time I first contacted her about the property online. When we went out to see it, I knew it would be the perfect place for my wedding. I spent a year and a half thinking about how things would be set up there and dreaming about that day. When the big day came, it was everything I hoped for. My family and close friends were able to stay at the house for the weekend. We had our own lake. ( I even canoed in my dress for wedding photos!) The pool was great for those who stayed in the house. We released butterflies at the wedding since it was outdoors, and staying there for the whole weekend allowed me to see my butterflies hang around for the next couple days. Family and friends could relax and spend time together instead of the normal one night wedding rush. The house and property could not have been more beautiful and we were able to have 60 guests easily for the wedding day. Donna was patient and accommodating with all the questions that go into planning a big event and coordinating all the vendors (hair, caterer, and photographers) to come to the site. It was much more reasonable than renting a hall because we were not stuck with one choice of caterer. Shopping around for the best quality service saved money and gave me more choices on the food that I wanted. People were able to serve themselves with drinks that we provided, and so we saved money by preventing a bar service fee. I got a whole weekend to remember for less than the cost of most one day events in a hall. Thanks to Donna for making my big day everything I wanted it to be!

Location

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!!!

Amenities

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:-)
