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

Boating, watersports, gravel & sandbars, cookouts and sunny relaxation await.

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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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!) 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

House is not 'child proof'. If there are kids in your party feel free to rearrange as necessary to maximize safety, minimize breakage.

Must be able to navigate stairs throughout the house. Please advise in advance of need to use the lift from ground floor to access living level.

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.

You can't imagine how nice the house is. Large comfortable great room with a modern kitchen, loads of tables, chairs, and seating. At least 12 people could comfortably relax in this space. But wait - that's not all, there is much more room out on the deck which wraps around the back of the house facing the beautiful river. Oh - and more seating down by the river! There is covered parking for two vehicles. The bedrooms are beautiful and spacious. One night we watched a thunderstorm while sipping wine from the covered part of the deck. Very relaxing. Oh - and the smors were a nice touch - well played Jill & Sean.

We enjoyed our stay! The hosts were very helpful. We enjoyed the private sand beach area for the kids and the water was nice! The multiple decks were very fun to hang out in!

Wking up to the fog over the river, making a cup of coffee and watching the river emerge from the mist while watching the hummingbirds flit around on the deck, this is how I started every morning and it was perfect! Clean, well appointed house, our hosts just a phone call away, all the ammentities we needed plus extras like the firewood, smores, charcoal, and wifi. I would greatly recommend for any type of getaway.

The pictures don't do the place justice. It's beautiful and perfectly serene.

Very unique house off the beaten path! It is built to handle flooding, so the furnished part is on the second floor. Unfortunately, it was rainy and overcast most of the time I was there so I cannot speak to swimming and the river. We played bean bag toss games under the house/deck and barbecued and then later played video games (brought from home) on the small tv upstairs. Jill was a great host and was communicative. The neighbors were nice. They invited us to a party had s couple dogs running around that we played with. I would stay again.
