                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: I live in St. Louis County with my three children and love that we can easily get to our Innsbrook house in an hour, door-to-door, for a getaway weekend or sometimes for just a night. We purchased our first property at Innsbrook in 2005 and moved in for summer fun in 2006. Now we spend every summer at Innsbrook -- we pack up the kids, the pets, the musical instruments, the bikes, and relocate (close enough, though, for daily visits from our St. Louis friends). We spend our days swimming in the lake, feeding the huge catfish that come to our dock, picking lots of berries, grilling steaks and exploring the woods. We absolutely love our time at Innsbrook and are anxious for everyone to experience how wonderful it is. No one has yet to come away less than enthusiastic!

                          Why the Owner Chose Innsbrook:
                          Innsbrook is a world away from the busy suburban life that we live most of the time. When you pass through the main gate at Innsbrook, you feel like you've traveled across the country to a unique destination. It's a peaceful getaway, full of family fun, yet such an incredibly easy escape. We bought this chalet in 2008 to use as a vacation rental so we can share everything we love about Innsbrook with others -- old friends and new friends alike.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                          We love to bike the many roads (& hills!) of Innsbrook on early summer mornings. The kids love to fish off the dock all year and they spend hours in the summertime in the water -- swimming, floating, sailing. (They've even been known to break through the ice in the wintertime in the kayak). The wildlife is incredible -- not a day goes by when we don't see deer, bluebirds, woodpeckers, owls. It's a huge treat to see the animals to close to us. We also love the simple life that Innsbrook offers -- the orchards nearby, tiny Harmony Church, the friendliness of all the staff, the country store for ice cream, the farmer's market for homemade bread and fresh produce. We have explored it all -- golf, tennis, the basketball courts, all the beaches, the running trails, the outdoor movies. But probably the best thing of all (for mom & dad, at least) is looking at the beautiful lake with with a glass of wine, totally relaxed.
