Bring the family or a group of friends to play on the gorgeous Osage River, just minutes from downtown Jefferson City.

College Football Fans: we're less than 40 minutes to Mizzou Stadium for that home game advantage!
Ideal for girls week-ends, bachelor/bachelorette parties, family reunions, weddings, guy fishing trips and more!
House is ideal for 3 couples or up to 8 adults, 10 including kids.
Lovely updated year-round house on the Osage River just 10 minutes from Jefferson City on private association-maintained paved road. House sits on raised cinder block and poured concrete with first level workshop, game room, bathroom/shower. Elevator lift or stairs to second level living include remodeled kitchen/dining/great room; 3 bedrooms, three baths including 2 masters en suite (main master suite has vaulted beamed ceilings, skylights, jacuzzi, glass shower, double-sided fireplace and walk-in closet with laundry room and it's own private deck).
Tons of outdoor living space including tiled front porch, 20x24' newly built sun deck (that doubles as 2-car carport), wrap around deck to private area off master, large well-landscaped concrete patio with fish pond, covered bar, bbq area, fire pit, sand beach and 19x8 boat dock on extended iron ramp to the river. Property also has its own private boat launch ramp (often covered with mud, though), 12x16 shed, RV hook-ups, updated septic with drain field, plenty of parking for cars and boats.
Remodel over past two years includes new shaker-style shingle roof, floors, appliances, kitchen cabinets refinished, drywall, paint, bathroom and more but ultimately it's still just an 'ol river house.
Watch the sunrise over the river from your bed through the wall of windows...walk out the door and down the ramp to your boat... never have to trailer up and down or pack and unpack all your weekend provisions again because it's all right there...and if you need anything it's 10 minutes to Wal-mart...float down river to watch the sunset...catch the majestic eagles soaring overhead - the nest is right around the bend (they had 3 babies this year!)...read a book in the hammock... sit outside in the covered bar area and enjoy the view even when it's pouring rain... get cozy with a fire in the river-side pit... wiggle your toes and make castles on the big sand beach... have a family bar-b-que and seat 24 at the tables... It's a lifestyle... friends & family.... neighbors helping neighbors... everybody waves... spending time on, in and watching the river.
Interaction with guests
This is our home but it is available for whole house rental. This means our clothes are in the closet and some food might be in the fridge but you'll have the place to yourself.
For bachelor/bachelorette parties, weddings and reunions we offer event services that allow you to be a guest at the party instead of running around taking care of everything. This can include logistic arrangements, set-up/tear-down and clean up, shopping/food prep/cooking/serving, bands/DJ's and other entertainment, decorations, etc. Just ask and we can likely make it happen. [Note: for bachelor/bachelorette parties all guests must be 24 or over, no exceptions. Violation will result in forfeit of deposit]
Other things to note

Your boats and personal watercraft are welcome. Conservation ramp 10 minutes away. Tie up at the dock, plenty of trailer parking.
Hook ups available for your RV with advance arrangements and additional fee.
Some fishing poles and tackle (bring your own bait), life jackets (except for infants/small children which you should provide to ensure proper fit), firewood, grill & charcoal all provided, within reason.
Wifi. Netflix. No cable. Outside of any food delivery zone.
**This home is on a river. Rivers sometimes flood. Water has been in the yard and in the lower level (it's a raised cinder block designed for that purpose). There is always warning so this isn't a safety issue. It has happened once during a guest stay resulting in cutting it short by a day. We do want to make it known so our guests understand the risk (however small) of a possible last minute displacement. Unfortunately we can't predict mother nature! In the unlikely event of flooding, all deposits and fees would be fully refunded and we will assist with making alternate arrangements but we assume no other culpability. Please consider this fair warning if you agree to book this property.
This is a river several miles long, not a lake. There is current. The levels are constantly fluctuating. There are lots of boats on the weekend. The Osage starts at the Lake of the Ozarks and empties into the Missouri River (big muddy). We are navigable from the Lock and Dam to Bonnots Mill. In the dead summer there are often giant sand bars in the Missouri where sometimes a hundred boats beach. It's very scenic and usually pretty laid back. Rafting up is a favorite past time. There are no boat rentals close by.
We are NOT the Lake of the Ozarks. It is a 45 minute drive.
We are NOT in wine country. It is an hour drive to Herman.
No smoking inside.
Children must be supervised near the water at all times and must wear a life jacket on the docks.
House and grounds are not 'baby proofed'. Additional care will be needed.
Parties must be approved. Adults must be supervised ;) For bachelor/bachelorette parties all guests must be 24 or over, no exceptions. Violation will result in forfeit of deposit.
Well behaved pets considered on case basis.
Person renting the house is the only person who can check in unless other arrangements have been made.
No cleaning fee because we expect the property to be returned as you found it. Checklist will be provided.
