About Ann Jarrett
My husband and I are both educators. We enjoy vacationing with our grown children and extended family.
Ann Jarrett purchased this House in 1998
Why Ann Jarrett chose Waynesville
This is the home I grew up in. In 2008 we took a family trip with our grown children and stayed in a vacation rental home. We enjoyed cooking together and relaxing in a home. We thought this home would be great for families coming to Fort Leonard Wood for graduations and to visit family.

Great location and time with family.
The house has a great amount of space. We were able to cook for 12 and all could sit in the same area. The patio worked out great for some much needed time outdoors relaxing. Thanks for providing a great place to stay!
Thanks to the property owners!
The size of the house and the comfort of the beds was wonderful. It was very clean and there were far more linens than even our group of 12 could need. Plenty of kitchen/cooking materials and I can't say enough about how accommodating the hosts were and how flexible they were with the whole unsure military graduation process. There were some things that needed updating and fixing, and I would love to have been able to lock the basement door or have it already locked when we arrived, but it was less than the several hotel rooms we would have needed and we really didn't have any needs unfulfilled. Thank you for being there for soldiers families!
We rented this house for a military graduation. It was the perfect location and worked very well for our large group!
Exactly what we wanted and perfect distance to the base.
Comfortable and relaxing.
It was easy to find, very spacious and clean
Thanks so much Antony for the positive comments. Glad you found the property easily and enjoyed the spaciousness. Our housekeeper does an excellent job and I will pass your comments on to her.
Quite the experience
The home is exactly as pictured. My family and I stayed there for my niece's military graduation. My husband and I had some unforeseeable changes with our trip, but John was so accommodating to the rest of my family, who would be arriving before myself and my husband. He was always there to answer any questions. He and his wife were completely understanding and left us with memories we will never forget.
Thanks for such a heartfelt wonderful and glowing review we really appreciate it. Come back anytime.

As you go east through Saint Robert to get to the main gate of Fort Leonard Wood, you'll pass the only remaining original Route 66 roadside park in Missouri, now with the addition of a military tank. Route 66 enthusiasts find our home a great base from which to explore landmarks to the east and west, as route runs right through Waynesville. Visit the scenic and historic bridge route though Devil's Elbow and envision it with trucks and cross-country traffic to understand why the Pulaski County section of Route 66 was called Bloody 66. The bluffs surrounding Devil's Elbow were once listed as one of the seven scenic wonders of Missouri.
Fort Leonard Wood features a free indoor-outdoor military museum and free batting cages. Small fees for bowling and fishing (MO fishing license required). Military families can shop at the PX and commissary.
Public golf courses in the area include the 18-hole Piney Valley Golf Course and driving range on Fort Leonard Wood. Saint Robert Municipal Golf Course, Richland Country Club and Public Golf, and Oak Hills Country Club Golf, Dixon, are all 9-hole courses.
