About Sarah Bantz
Hello! I moved to Columbia in 1996 and earned a Master's Degree from the MU College of Agriculture. Since then, I have worked in the downtown arts scene, grown and sold vegetables at the Columbia Farmer's Market, and rehabbed this house! Today, I work as an accountant.
Sarah Bantz purchased this House in 2005
Why Sarah Bantz chose Missouri
Once, two older ladies teetered up my front steps to tell me they had lived here as girls in the late 1920s, with a party line phone in the front hall and a cow in the back yard. Sometime later, an overfull car of middle aged men stopped me in the yard to say they had lived and partied here in the 1970s. I bought the house in 2005, stripped it down to the shell, and have been putting it back together ever since...for better or for worse. I have no doubt you will enjoy spending time in this home.

Clean, comfortable, great location
It was perfect for us. Very clean and great location. Beds super comfy.
Terry & Co were great guests! They took good care of the place and were very nice!
Very comfortable cottage
The cottage was very close to everything! Comfortable beds and quite spacious accommodation. We enjoyed our stay.
Charming, efficient, and great location!
We came down from Minneapolis to play Disc Golf, and to watch the total solar eclipse! Very fortunate to stay in this charming house. Clean and tidy, well prepared, and a great location. Convenient to any area of the city, and very close to campus, but still secluded and quiet. Side notes... The eclipse was a bucket list level event! And the disc golf courses are great too! Harmony Bends Park is definitely world class. Thanks for helping make a very memorable event!
The location was great and the house was charming. It was well set up and maintained. The dishwasher was broken but we didn''t do any cooking so this was not an issue.
Nice place to watch the rain on the back
Location for a concert at mizzou arena. A 5 min drive away.
Our family recently had a great weekend in Columbia. Our stay at this Home Away house was like gathering in our own home. We had all the amenities we needed and were very comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed to help us cook our meals. Bathrooms are nice. Neighborhood is safe. Our kids went jogging every morning at a nearby park. We went to a nearby winery one afternoon and got familiar with the city. Our hostess was very quick to answer any of our questions before and during our stay.We hope to stay there again.
I am so glad you like it and had an enjoyable trip!
