Experience the tranquil life of a vineyard and winery owner at this beautiful wine-country home located in the rural fringe of a metropolitan city. The three-story farmhouse boasts modern amenities and amazing, elevated views of the eco-friendly vineyard and rolling hills of rural Platte County. Should you eventually tire of gazing upon the vines, our award-winning winery is literally just a stone’s throw out the back door.
Make this your launch pad for exploring Missouri’s northwest wine region including Weston, Mo., or your base camp for the many exciting events in the Kansas City area. Should you want to venture out from our cozy winery retreat, we are just 10 minutes from KCI Airport, 20 Minutes from the Kansas Speedway, 30 minutes from Downtown Kansas City and a mere 45 minutes from KC’s major league Sports Complex. And, if a bit of history is what you seek, St. Joseph and its bounty of museums is just 25 miles to the north.
Our home is perfect for two or three couples, a friend’s getaway weekend, or even a medium-sized family. It’s is comfortably furnished with a full kitchen, living room, formal dining room, a front porch and large back deck. You’ll find two-and-a-half bathrooms and three bedrooms. Bedrooms include a master suite with king bed, a whimsical junior bedroom with a queen bed, and a playful junior bedroom with two, twin bunk beds.
A stay at our wine country home is a perfect way to escape the city and unplug as you relax. Watch the sun rise over the vineyard as you sip your coffee on our spacious deck. Sip wine on the front porch in grandma’s wooden rockers as the setting sun paints a masterpiece in the western sky. A gas grill on the deck makes meal preparation a social affair as your family and friends make the spacious kitchen the social center of your stay.
The winery regularly hosts live music both indoors and outdoors in warmer months - usually from 6:00-9:00 p.m. May through November you’ll have the best seat in the house on our upper deck. We also do have a large-screen television with an assortment of wine-themed movies and local stations (sorry, we don’t have cable), a washer and dryer, and a basic internet connection if you need to check e-mail or upload a picture to social media to make your friends and family jealous.
Enjoy our self-guided walking trail while learning about our eco-friendly grape and wine production practices. In season, you will see chickens and sheep working in the vineyard. These critters help us manage pests as the chickens eat harmful insects and the sheep mow the grass under the vines. Outside, you will also meet our super-friendly Great Pyrenees dog named Vidal and a vineyard cat named Moonlight. Since our pets will be on-site (outdoors) during your stay, we do not allow outside pets in our home or on the property for overnight stays. We do allow smoking in designated outdoor areas. There is no smoking inside the home or any buildings.
Thank you so much for considering our home for your stay!
