Situated right on the gentle Missouri River, our quirky 80's style vacation home presents opportunities for both active and slower paced travelers. Tucked away on the river side of our family business, traveler's are blocked from the noise of the road. A river access point on our property allows for guests to venture out kayaking, canoeing, inner tubing or rafting. (No trailoring down our ramp - only crafts you can get in and out of the water by lifting).

Our wide lawn is a perfect running space for your four-legged friend. Our home is open to furry adventurers, too, we just require a notice and and an additional deposit.

The house is 3000 square feet and is ideal for a family or friend group looking for a home to stay in. There are stairs! Please reconsider if you are handicapped / have trouble walking up or down stairs.

Rooms are:

Master bedroom: King sized bed, full-sized pullout sofa, little dining set and porch overlooking the river, connecting bathroom, and a walk-in closet

White bedroom: Desk area for work, queen-sized medium soft bed, walk in closet

Orange bedroom: 2 Queen sized memory foam beds, walk-in closet

Downstairs book nook: pullout queen sofa mattress

Kitchen: Oven, stove, dishwasher, bar-stool dining set up

Guests may use our washing and drying machine as well as wi-fi

Please note that parking next to the home is only suitable for 2 vehicles. There is additional parking for 4 vehicles next to our family's business (which is next to our building) as long as additional guests don't mind a minute walk.

Also, the property manager lives above the family's business next door. You will likely see her going in and out of the business next door with her puppy. You will also likely see (during the weekdays), our 2 employees coming in and out of the business next door. Please feel free to grab any one of them if you have questions or would like to visit!

This is a fabulous place to spend the day on the water.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to gather at this beautiful, secluded spot on the Missouri River. It suited our needs perfectly and allowed us to spend the day outside with family. The house is huge and had it not been a great day to be outside, it would have accommodated everyone inside as well. The stairs to the upper level are a little much for an elderly person but that would be my only criticism. Really good stay!

House has a strange layout, but nice view of the river

  • 2 of 5

The owners will make you feel like you’re second guessing every step you make in the home. The moment we arrived we were met by someone to do a detailed walkthrough...similar to like renting a car. I thought they were just being thorough, but I should’ve realized that wasn’t the case. We rented the home to visit family who lives in town and attend a rodeo in a nearby town, so we didn’t actually occupy the house very much outside of heading home after dinner to get all kids bathed and to bed. I work for Expedia (who owns HomeAway) and have rented various times with no problems. These owners claimed we smudged the ping pong table by spilling something on it then wiping it up. Nothing of this nature happened, and it more looked like something cleaners could’ve done. If you choose to rent this home I’d highly recommend taking pictures of all areas during check-in and check-out (i.e. similar to like renting a car). I don’t mind paying for damages that were actually made, but as a responsible and respectful renter having your actions questioned is an unfortunate experience. It has also ruined our memory of our family vacation to Great Falls :(

Owner's Response: Hello Cindy, I'm so sorry you felt our walk-through wasn't thorough enough for your group. We will certainly make note and do a better job with our guests moving forward. Unfortunately with the ping-pong table, or with any items that are damaged during a guest's stay, however it may have happened, they are addressed to the person who made the reservation. I'm sorry you feel wronged, but there is nothing we can do if an item is fine as we go through the walk-through (which we did and pointed out the table and mentioned liquids will damage the table) and upon checkout has undergone discoloration (like the photos we sent to you and the VRBO damages center). In regards to wondering if it may have been a cleaning crew who did it, my daughter and I walked through the house before any cleaning was attempted. We honestly wish that every time we have renters, everything goes well and the guests have a lovely time and the house and all its contents are in the same condition as they were prior to our guests' stay. It pains us to notice damage and to have to decide what it costs us, not only monetarily, but in deciding if we need to discuss it with the renters, possibly resulting in a poor review which affects our family’s rental. As a representative of Expedia, I’m sure you are well aware how difficult it is for hosts to have to decide to bring forward their concerns and damages with renters. I hope wherever your family’s trip may next be, you all have a pleasant experience, both in the vacation time and in your rental. All the best, Alice and Kris

Beautiful location with wonderful sunsets. House is very nice and hidden from the road for privacy.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in the house. It had everything we needed and the kids loved playing pool and fishing off the back patio, they didn’t even miss the fact that there wasn’t cable! Kris was great and was there if we needed her for anything. I would recommend this place to anyone and would definitely stay here again.

Pretty nice location.

  • 4 of 5

Site could use some improvements to secure patio/parking area from the river, especially with regard to children's safety. Also, there are a number of stairs to navigate inside the house which can be difficult for senior citizens. Otherwise, it is a good location - easy to access and beautiful along the river. House is comfortable and accommodated 9 of us very well.

Quiet and unique.

  • 4 of 5

Unique location and layout. Being right on the river was wonderful. While we were going for a mostly electronics free vacation, it could be noted that WiFi was limited and unreliable. It suited us but others might want more connectivity. Owners were super kind and responsive. Tricky parking in a big car.
