About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This is truly a paradise for the most private of parties. Our home cannot even be found on MapQuest. They have the location wrong and so far have not fixed it! Lock the gate behind you and no one will enter unless you want them too! This home cannot be seen by the road and nobody knows you are here, but me! This is my private home and now that I am an empty nester I thought I would like to share it with others, so you can experience the beauty of nature and the unique architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright's teachings. Once you arrive you will not want to leave! Every day is a new day here with something different to see. I promise you, you won't be disappointed, you may not even want to leave!

Main Floor: dining - seats 8, kitchen - seats 6 at breakfast bar, walk-in pantry, sunken great room, laundry room, 2 bedrooms, a King lakeside and a smaller bedroom with a bunkbed - double on bottom and single on top, 1 1/2 bath, the large bathroom has sunken tub with hand held shower head the half bath is off of the dining area.

Second Floor: 3 bedrooms - 2 masters (1 king and 1 queen) the 3rd also a queen. 2 bathrooms 1 with 2 seated shower the other with large 2 person seated shower, double sink, and Jacuzzi tub.

There are so many things to offer one that stays here. It's large enough for a family gathering and personal enough for a private getaway!

Fully equipped kitchen, linens, beach towels, gas grill, 2 kayaks, and two pedal boats. Peacefulness, views, and nature, along with all the above!

* You will enjoy swimming (heated concrete pool 15x30), kayaking, pedal boating, fishing until your heart is content, hiking, barbecuing, or just relaxing and taking in all the views.
* Don't forget on a cool evening you can sit around the bonfire down at what we call the park area!
* Wineries are close by! Don't want to drive back, we will see if we can arrange a DD for you!
* Restaurants, well there are just a few, that we will recommend, otherwise it's off to St. Louis for dinner!

Owner info

Nautical Vacation Rentals, LLC

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: This was our 4th home, we actually bought it to develop the property around the lake and once we moved here, in August 1995, we couldn't do it! With our children grown we thought why not allow others to enjoy this beauty, it's so peaceful and inspirational! The response was so great the first year, 2009, that I continued doing it after my husbands passing, October 2009. It warms my heart to know that so many people travel from all over the United States to meet family & friends here to create wonderful memories! I really enjoy meeting everyone and I hope to be doing this for many years to come!

Why the Owner Chose Union, MO, USA:
This was our personal home where we raised our two children for 15 years! It's a private paradise that is relaxing, rejuvenating, very peaceful, and inspirational! I'm sure you will find it the same! We are close to Six Flags, Wine Country, and about 40-50 minutes to downtown St. Louis.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
You will enjoy getting back to nature here. It is your own private resort to enjoy with your close personal friends and family! Swim in the pool or lake, kayak, pedal the paddle boats/LOL, enjoy the sounds of nature or the outdoor music, fish, hike, relax and listen to water trickling into the concrete pond, have a bonfire in your own private park by the lake and roast some marshmallows by the open fire while watching the moon dance across the lake - if your lucky it'll be a full moon - how romantic will that be? Best of all enjoy the architecture of this Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home that was designed by one of his apprentices, Ralph Fournier and the previous owner, built in 1970 and 2nd story added on by us in 1998.
