About Tarah Riegel

My mother originally started a vacation rental business about 7 years ago. After assisting her part time the last few years, I finally decided that starting a vacation rental business of my own was finally in my cards as well! I now own & manage a little company called Bassora Properties just outside St. Louis, MO. My husband, Brian, and I love sharing our first vacation rental, Hidden Creek Getaway, with others. We love it so much that we are also diligently working to restore a 120 year old 3 story all brick home that is located in Washington's Historic Downtown District (listing #820866). It will be completed in the late Spring of 2016 and will sleep 10+ people. Brian's passion is his day job, working on his family's dairy farm and mine is crafting, sewing, and embroidering unique items. Together, we make a great team managing the property and are quick to respond to your needs since we live just a mile away with our three children, Sawyer, Sterling, & Scarlett!

Tarah Riegel purchased this house in 2000

Why Tarah Riegel chose Washington

We absolutely LOVE the privacy that it offers! We are blessed to see the stars about every night, hear the sound of the trees swaying, and smell of fresh, clean just can't get any better than that!

What makes this house unique

There are NO HALLWAYS! The floor plan is so open, you won't find 1 hallway in the whole house...except the stairs going down to the basement!

Perfect for Family Getaways!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Hidden Creek Getaway. The house was just as awesome as it looked online. This was a siblings & spouses trip plus 3 nephews/families. There were 15 of us. The town of Washington was a close drive, so we bought food supplies at Walmart. The two large refrigerators at the house easily held all the food we bought to have breakfast and snack suppers at the house. There were already lots of condiments and spices at the house, so we didn't have to buy the basics. The house was very comfortable and home-y. The pool (and pool toys) were a big hit with adults and kids; we swam every day. The deck was a quiet, peaceful spot to have morning coffee. We also did a cookout on the grill one night. We tried several of the restaurants in Washington by the river. All had tasty food and reasonable prices. The house was about an hour away from StLouis, close enough to drive in for Ted Drewes ice cream and a Cardinals game. My nephew brought his video game system, and set it up to show on the wall using the projector in the man cave, now with theater style seating for 5-6. So much fun! The wifi was steady and reliable. There was enough yard in the front and back to play outdoor games that we'd brought with us, with seating on the covered front porch for the watchers. Tarah was extremely responsive to any questions or minor issues that we had. We couldn't have picked a better place for our family getaway than Hidden Creek Getaway!

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful home with enough beds for all of us on our girls weekend getaway. Bedrooms and bathrooms were well decorated. Enjoyed the open living areas where all of us could gather for a meal or a movie. Wish the deck area was a little more spacious and/or some shade available, but overall a nice, very private, property.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we expected and more. AMPLE space for fifteen of us including five under 10 and two teens. The pool lacked clarity when we arrived but the owners made a huge effort and we were swimming already on day two. Privacy, simplicity, and close proximate to St Louis made it a great place to stay and play for our family as we gathered from across the country.
