We were in town for meetings in Boonville and this was a short drive away in a small quiet town.

Girls’ Getaway
Lovely house on a quiet street. Unfortunately it was too hot to enjoy either the front porch or the back deck. The glass enclosed utility room/sunroom was where we sat with our coffee in the morning. It was an easy walk to Main Street for breakfast, lunch or browsing. For anyone going to the Lyceum Theatre in Arrow Rock, this home in Blackwater is ideal for an overnight stay before or after the theatre. We were quite pleased with the house and would definitely recommend it. Suggestions for the owner: A rubber mat or grab bar in the bathtub, bedside lamps in the bedrooms for nighttime reading, and tack strips on the rug by the front door.

Peaceful Retreat
Home was immaculate. Neighborhood was quiet, a small elementary school was at the end of the street but wasn’t in session yet. Porch swing was my favorite spot for morning coffee and evening discussions. Small town friendliness abounds. Good eats down the street. Easy drive to Katy Trail for hiking. It was everything we wanted.
