Awesome Property in Missouri wine country / duck country close to Missouri River

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for the 25th Anniversary Master National Retriever Club AKC Hunting Test competition held at August A. Busch Memorial Wildlife Conservation Area. The location was awesome half way between Busch Conservation Area and Purina Farms. The wineries on 94 were a special treat. The Defiance Roadhouse in Defiance, MO, was the bomb. Atmosphere was great; staff was greater; food was greatest. This VRBO property is very secluded on a private road and lake. Very relaxing. Someplace we would be willing to return to without an agenda and just hang out. Thank you Pete and Janet!

Nice home and very convenient to wineries

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our niece's wedding weekend at this very nice home. Secluded and private, yet convenient to local wineries. Wedding was held at Nobleis Vineyard which is only 2.8 miles from property--very easy drive for the many trips back and forth getting everything ready for ceremony and reception. Weather was too cool to enjoy the lake much while we were there, but we did take a few hikes around the beautiful grounds. It was great to have our family stay all together. Would definitely recommend!

The perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this beautiful home in wine country to celebrate my mother's 60th birthday. We spent every morning drinking coffee on the dock as the sun rose, shared meals around the dinner table, and caught up with one another around the fireplace in the evening. The views were beautiful, as the leaves were just starting to change, but the water was still warm enough that we could jump in for a refreshing swim. The beds were comfortable and the shower was hot with great pressure. In addition to the house, we also rented the game house which had ping pong table and a special rooftop outlook. The pictures don't quite capture all of the detail and love put into this space. It is a well-kept home and we are happy to have been able to stay here.

A short 35 miles from St. Louis. A charming and luxurious private home situated on 140 acres with a vineyard overlooking a 20 acre private lake in the scenic Augusta, Missouri wine country. You may hike, canoe, paddle boat, fish, swim or simply relax on our property. Just 2 miles from the town of Augusta. Augusta is home to several excellent wineries where visitors can sip the vintner's special wines and enjoy picnic lunches with spectacular views of the rolling hillside vineyards. Augusta Micro Brewery offers a variety of selections unique to the area. A walk through the town will uncover unique specialty shops, fabulous restaurants and bakeries. We love the quaint Kate's Coffee and the decadent Halcyon Spa (also offers yoga classes)!! Don't miss Centennial Farms for fresh produce. Daniel Boones' Missouri Home and the Busch Wildlife Area are near. Special events are hosted year round. The well known Missouri Katy Trail is in town for those who would like to bike, walk or run. Bikes may be rented. Klondike Park is just a few miles away. 4 miles of natural and paved trails are offered for biking and hiking, playground and fishing. Fully stocked with bluegill, bass and catfish and free boat ramps to the Missouri River. The historic towns of Washington and Defiance, MO are just 15 minutes away.
