beautiful private lake

  • 5 of 5

Sixteen of us stayed over a long weekend, ages 1 to 67. There was something for everyone - small playground and playhouse for my great niece, board games, boats and fishing for the teenagers, puzzles and long walks on quiet gravel roads for the middle-aged, and a well-equipped kitchen for the cook. We found the second refridgerator useful. Many basics (tea, napkins, condiments) were already on hand. The rooms and beds were in good configurations to allow flexibility. We were able to all sit down to dinner together in the dining room. There was lots of space. We had some difficulties with the wifi, but didn't care enough about it to ask for help. Amy was very responsive when we asked questions, before arrival and during. The house was very clean and organized, with great views and comfortable furnishings. The beds had comfortable, firm mattresses. The room with multiple beds made a good dormatory for the kids. The grounds were beautifully kept and there was not another house in view. Everything was in good operating order. The house water smells of sulpher, but filtered water was available from the refrigerator and from a large carafe in the dining room. During a sunny fall weekend, we saw bluebirds, deer, frogs, ducks and my son caught (and released) bass, bluegill, catfish and he thought a trout. We drove to Hermann's Octoberfest, about 40 minutes away; and a similar drive to the MKT trail.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a guys weekend here, my dad and brothers and a few of the nephews came from around the US to stay in this peaceful getaway. It was secluded, yet near to places to eat out, if we chose. The lake was the right size for enjoying with canoes/swimming/fishing which the kids enjoyed throughout our stay. The house was well stocked with everything we needed and plenty of size for everyone to have their own space. I hope to be able to return here with my kids soon! I would highly recommend this location.

Amazing property with great amenities and owners!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a perfect stay at this amazing property. Our group included 5 children under 5 years old and there was no lack of entertainment. We enjoyed the paddle boat and the abundant fishing on the lake. Amy and Dan are great and we will look into using the property again next year. Thanks for everything!

An outstanding family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had 15 adults and one child for three days and nights at the Moore's property in Bellflower, MO. This was our 5th reunion, which we hold every two to three years. Other reunions were held in CO, MI, TX, IA and TN, but the one in MO at the Moore's was the best.

The facility was perfect. Everything was as advertised, actually better. There was not a single thing lacking in the kitchen or outdoor activity areas. The Moores went out of their way to provide assistance. Our younger two attendees (13 and 11) were in the pond more than they were out of it! Keeping teenagers happy was easy.

If a truly family event is what you want, the Moore's have the right place. We will definitely return!

Family reunion

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our family reunion of 20. Clean, comfortable, and spacious common areas for group gatherings. The pond has an inlet and outlet and was refreshing and clean. Plenty of dishes and utensils in the kitchen but a bit thin on pots. Bring 1, 2, & 3 quart pans and you'll have everything you need--truly, everything!

Perfect Choice for Our Student Fellowship Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our student fellowship had a retreat here this past weekend and we had a very wonderful time!!

About the House:

- The house is super clean and well maintained

- It was the perfect size for our group (25 adults & 5 children) and everyone had their own sleeping space

- The house layout was great for our uses too - group gathering/worship on the main level and child service in the lower level, and we also made good use of the wonderful outdoor space for games and team-building activities

Contact with the Owner:

- Amy was our main contact and she was super flexible and understanding of our group needs. She went above and beyond to help us! We are very thankful :)

Driving Tip for Future Guests:

- The location was a little difficult to find but it totally worth it!

- If you are really good with written driving directions, you can use the one the owner provided

- If you are more used to driving with GPS, Google Map will take you to the right path until the very last part on Truxton (so you will only have to follow the owner's note for the last turns)


- We are so blessed to have had our retreat here. We would totally come back for another one if possible!!
