About The Owner

Hi. Thank you for checking out our vacation rental, Retreat by the Park. My husband and I love to travel. We've spent the last few years completely restored our home, which is connected to our vacation rental. We love sharing our home with fellow travelers. We both grew up in rural mid-Missouri and are now super fans of CoMo.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2012

Why The Owner chose Missouri

Our vacation rental is a true mother-in-law apartment. It was added to our historic home in 2000 and we lived in it while we restored the remainder of the house. You'll find it's comfortable, roomy and relaxing. Step out the door to enjoy a nice stroll through the 600-acre Cosmo Park, be downtown in 10 minutes to enjoy Columbia's endless dining options or take the short drive to cheer on the Mizzou Tigers (or a visiting team).

It was a great place to rent! Great for a girls getaway! Comfy beds! Wished we would have brought some board games to play. Felt right at home in this clean rental!

Fantastic Place to Stay!

This place is the perfect place to stay for a quick trip to Columbia, or a long term stay. It is clean and nice and has everything you need. We went for the Mizzou football game and I can't wait to stay again!

Really enjoyed the stay, it was so much better than staying in a hotel for parents weekend. It was clean and neat. Roomy enough for all of us to be comfortable. Owners were awesome. Would definitely stay again.
