Property description

'SERENITY', the name of this spectacular LAKEFRONT home, has all the amenities for a memorable vacation regardless of what season you choose to come.

This 4,500+ sq ft home has 120 ft of shoreline complete with private dock on the Main Lake at Lake Sherwood in one of the best coves for swimming, fishing and enjoying the lake. With more than 3,000 sq feet of decks, patios and dock you can take full advantage of enjoying the outdoors.

Want to explore the lake? We have a paddle boat, kayak and canoe for you to use. Spend the day on the water floating on one of the many water toys that are provided. The lake has great fishing too right off our dock. Enjoy the screened in porch or hang out on the rocking chair deck or chill out in one of the hammocks hanging in the trees. Then end your day relaxing in the 8 person hot tub under the starlit sky.

Cathedral ceilings offer breathtaking views of the water & tree filled property as does the sunroom and many decks located around the house and lake side so no matter what time of year 'SERENITY' is a great escape. Cozy around the 2 story stone fireplace or curl up with a good book in the loft area. You will love the privacy and you will feel lost in the tranquility.

The whimsical lower entertainment level has fun for everyone. Enjoy the custom made Texas Hold em Poker Table, Foosball, Pool Table and we have numerous fun games, DVDs, books and CDs for our guests use. Then to top it off you will find the home theatre featuring a 110 inch Projection TV, awesome surround sound, Direct TV with Tivo, Blu-Ray DVD Player and we have a Wii. We even have comfy theatre seating. Oops! Forgot to mention the bar area with microwave for that needed movie popcorn.

There is a large gourmet kitchen that is perfect for entertaining. The kitchen has a large granite topped center island w/extra prep sink, double ovens, microwave, all cooking & serving utensils you need for whipping up spectacular meals. We even have a supply of many spices, condiments, paper products for your convenience. Bring your favorite recipes, food and channel your inner Chef!

This home has 5 bedrooms (one with 2 sets of bunk beds and a sofa sleeper that is the perfect kids room) and 4 full bathrooms and 2 half baths. The Master Bedroom Suite & Master Bath is located on the main floor and the other 4 bedrooms w/Jack and Jill bathrooms are on the upstairs guest level. We even have a 2nd floor guest laundry for drying out those suits. No need to bring linens or beach towels either as we provide it all.

We have pictures to give you a sampling of what 'SERENITY' has to offer but there is so much more to see and do. See complete house pictures at www.facebook.com/serenitylakehouse

This is truly a perfect place to leave it all behind and come enjoy the lake! Whether gathering for a family reunion, friend get together or a couple escape, why go all the way to the Ozarks when you have 'SERENITY' just outside of St Louis and all the town has to offer! So, come & escape to the lake!

NOTE: We have a 2nd vacation home at Lake Sherwood being offered for vacation rentals. REFLECTIONS Lake House is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath 4,400 sq ft home right on the main lake too with amazing water front views from almost every room. Sleeps 10-14 guests. Check it out at www.reflectionslakehouse.com or VRBO #460587 if Serenity is booked.

WHAT’S NEW at SERENITY? We constantly hear rave reviews about how nice, new and clean our lake home looks. Well, that takes a lot of effort and we continuously strive to enhance your vacation experience. Many of these things didn’t “need” to be done but I love to shop and keep things changing. lol! We are always upgrading to keep SERENITY fresh.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: Serenity was built for family and friends to gather for fun, relaxing and memories. Lake Sherwood is the best kept secret outside of St Louis that I have enjoyed since a young child. You will enjoy the feeling of being away from the world here with all it's beauty and wildlife. Pictured are L-R, Amy Fossett, Terrie Stiles & Kim Garner (owner). We are long time friends and have enjoyed the lake since Kim & Amy bought there first weekend house in 1997 at Lake Sherwood. Several years later we sold that weekend house and Kim Garner had this home custom built in 2003. The home was designed for entertaining friends and guests. We are now pleased to offer it for rental for others to enjoy. The minute you drive through the gates at Lake Sherwood you will experience the true 'Serenity' of the lake.

Why St. Louis:
With 'Serenity' only being 25 minutes from Chesterfield and less than an hour from downtown St Louis/Cardinal Baseball/Rams and most St. Louis Tourist Attractions makes this a perfect getaway without taking forever to arrive. There is so much to do around this area that one could spend several days without even taking advantage of all St Louis has to offer. The wineries, Katy's Trail (hiking and biking), shopping nearby and enjoying all Lake Sherwood has is a vacation in itself.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Floating on the water and BBQ in the summer and warming up in the hot tub in the winter are my favorite things to do here. If the weather is not so great, the basement is full of entertainment. Watching deer through the two story windows while sitting in front of the fireplace is also relaxing.
