About the Property

4 bedroom, 2.5 Bath; sleeps up to 18

Your home away from home!

Why stay in a cramped hotel rooms, or have to coordinate multiple hotel rooms for your stay when you can stay in a spacious 4,000 square-foot home, with a fully equipped kitchen, 4-bedrooms and 2.5-baths?

When you want or need space, this is your ideal place to stay in Columbia! An excellent option for larger families and groups traveling together, yet a favorite in Columbia for many with just a few staying!

Very light and airy, with soaring cathedral ceilings and spacious, open floor plan - with walls of windows and sky lights. The main level boasts a large kitchen and dining room combo, with seating for 8 at the dining room table and more at the island in the kitchen. The entry foyer has a pass through fireplace with the living room surrounded by windows overlooking the backyard lake. In the entry foyer you'll also find a wet bar and half bath!

The living room enjoys a full wall of windows overlooking the upper deck and backyard with a pond. Glass doors lead from the main level of the home to the upper deck outside where you'll find a table and chairs, additional seating and a charcoal grill for your cooking enjoyment to BBQ outside.

As you ascend the stairs to the loft, you'll overlook the living room and the view outside to the backyard. The loft is a bedroom loft, sleeping up up to 2 in the queen bed.

Descend the stairs to the lower level and there is a second pass-through fireplace and over-sized sitting area with a flat screen television. In the sleeping nook, set off from the main room, is a queen bed that overlooks the backyard.

Two bedrooms are also on the lower level and sleep up to 6 more guests – one bedroom has a queen bed, the second with two queen beds. A pack-and-play is located in the two-queen bedroom. Access to an additional rollaway bed if needed.

On the lower level is also a full bath with a combination shower-tub and a separate laundry room with Bosch front-loading washer and dryer. The lower level opens out to a patio that runs the length of the house and has comfortable seating to enjoy the view of the backyard and pond.

The house sits on 11 acres, complete with apple, pear, peach and cherry trees, grapes and berries. Hike the private woods, play games on the lawn or watch wildlife from the deck.

The main level is partially handicap accessible (3 shallow stairs that can utilize your portable ramp) with wide doors, grab bars at the toilet in the master and in the master roll-in shower. There is also a grab bar and railing located at the front door for our limited mobility guests. The home features a "master on the main" which allows enjoyment of the main level without needing to go upstairs or downstairs during your stay.

Our location is ideal for events downtown, MU Football weekends, weddings and visiting family and friends. Make it your home away from home as you transition to the area with our discounted executive rental rates to get you settled in as you search for your new home (28 or more nights).

We also welcome hunters with Eagle Bluffs just 2-miles down the road (no dressing game in the house). The house is 8 minutes to downtown, 7.5 minutes to the Faurot Field (home of the Mizzou Tigers) and the MU Campus, and the Katy Trail just 2-miles away!

Please note, the garage is not available for those renting the house. Parking in driveway for up to 6 cars, additional parking for events (with permission only) on designated lawn areas, event fees apply.

Manager info

Gilina Group, LLC - Columbia Executive Rentals

Year Purchased: 2009

About: I've lived in Columbia since 2006 and absolutely love this town - the midwest charm of the people who live here, the cultural apects and its proximity to both St. Louis and Kansas City can't be beat!

Why Columbia, MO, USA:
This house is perfectly located to enjoy Columbia, Eagle Bluffs and the surrounding area. It's a great property for groups traveling together, larger families and those seeking quiet country settings close to town, but not in town.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The light, airy feel of the home is unbeatable - the cathedral ceilings in the living room, with the wall of windows overlooking the back pond and woods is relaxing; the home's size is large enough for large groups, yet not too large even for just a few staying due to its layout.
