Sometimes you want a Lake vacation with all the bells and whistles. At other times you may want (or need) something more low-key and relaxing. On those occasions when swimming, boating, wave surfing and all the rest don't have to be right at your front door—when all you really want is a few days away from the frenzy of daily life—we invite you to consider our little sanctuary.
You will have your own private entrance to a small, artsy-cozy apartment within the lower level of our home. It features a sizable bedroom, a private bath, and a "living/breakfast room."
We're located in a small, quiet and upscale subdivision overlooking the lake. Restaurants, shopping, entertainment and water sports are just 10-15 minutes away -- close enough when you want to participate, but a world away when you want some downtime to finish your crossword puzzles, work on your book, or to wrap up that business plan.... or maybe when you simply want to sit on the patio, reflect on the sun going down, or keep an eye out for our local bald eagle and his brood.
Our place is infinitely quieter, more relaxing and private than most condo complexes. Instead of huge, commercial boat docks with no trees in sight, you'll oversee our tiny tomato patch, grapevines and rose bushes. And just beyond that you'll look out on our quiet cove, most often calm and serene, especially in the evenings.
Your bedroom features a new, memory foam Queen bed, a desk, private closet and 42-inch Roku/Netflix/Sling TV. Your tiled private bath features a deep tub and rainfall shower.
There's a small table and counter space for two in the breakfast room with refrigerator, microwave and all necessary utensils. We provide coffee, tea and a breakfast basket of fruit, cereal, and home-made cranberry-nut bread. Milk and yogurt are in the fridge. Please note that there is no stove top or sink. Cooking is not permitted.
Disponible para huéspedes
You will have access to your own apartment and a patio with a small outdoor table and chairs for your morning coffee. We live directly above, and one of us will normally be nearby. We will meet you with the key when you arrive and to give you a quick, explanatory tour.
Atención a los huéspedes
If you have a concern or question you may call or text between 8am and 9pm. You'll receive our phone number, WiFi password, etc. before you check in and an information card in the apartment.
We value your privacy as much as our own. On the other hand, we also welcome conversation if you are so inclined. We've found that sharing our life journeys with those of others is a primary benefit of the airbnb experience. If you would like to compare travel stories, or you simply need some information about the Lake, you can simply give us a call or text.
Otros aspectos destacables
As in other midwestern states Missouri deer (not Missouri mules!) have a fondness for our heavily wooded neighborhood. They are always fun to observe, but can also wander in front of your car. PLEASE BE CAUTIOUS and drive slowly.
- You must be at least 23 years old.
- We may ask for identification.
- No smoking and no drugs: You may smoke on the patio.

My wife and I are curious and committed travelers, always anxious to peek around that next bend in the road. We are transplanted European/Americans who discovered airbnb while researching a trip to Portugal and Rome. I had been searching for these kinds of accommodations without knowing where to look. As it turned out I found airbnb by serendipity, the best way to find anything.
Our airbnb experiences have been thoroughly satisfying. We made new friends and enjoyed conversations and insights one could never expect to receive in a typical, impersonal hotel. We've now enjoyed the hospitality of ten airbnb hosts. Each was unique and added to our "storehouse" of new knowledge, adventures and friendships.
What has been our favorite destination? Impossible to say. Each is as unique as the people we've met. For us the airbnb experience brings to life the expression that "Strangers are friends you haven't met yet."
