"A wonderful, relaxing two week stay was enjoyed by our family at the river home. All the beds were very comfortable and updated. The great room was nicely furnished with comfortable, modern couch/recliners topped off with a new flat screen TV. The kitchen area is very large, updated with granite tops with plenty of eating area. The adjacent pantry room is huge and accommodates a very nice, new washer and dryer. The bathrooms have been upgraded including granite counters, all with shower and/or tub with shower. A beautiful wood deck runs off the great room and master bedroom upstairs. Downstairs there are two queen beds, a bathroom and enough area to hold a party. The available folding tables and chairs make this area very conducive to having a nice get together, very nicely done. As a result, our family reunion with 30 plus people was a great success.
What we really enjoyed was the peace and quiet of the river home. We slept like babies. It is located about 1 mile off State Hwy. 89, away from any traffic noise.
While sitting on the outside deck we saw cottontails, blue birds, woodpeckers, and our favorite, the Red Bird (Cardinal). The lightning bugs fluttering between the trees were a special treat at night while on the deck. In the front yard area we saw several deer as well. One evening we saw an owl in flight. A short walk down the hill is a nicely done entry into the Gasconade River, a nice place for a cool dip on a hot day. There are inner tubes, life jackets, camp chairs, BBQ's, coolers, canoes, and much more available. The river home is a great place for a family vacation, family reunion, a friendly get together with friends, or a place to chill out and relax. The river home made us feel like we had a home away from home. Very comfortable.
Steve and Susie went out of their way to make sure we had a great vacation and family reunion. Thank you Steve and Susie. You are great."
