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 Columbia

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).

If you like it quiet and don't mind a short drive to downtown, then I would recommend staying here. Very comfortable and roomy with a nice space to lounge.

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!
