About Marc & Melanie Braun
Melanie and I are high school sweet hearts from Farmington, MO (about 60 miles South of St. Louis). Married for 15 years with three young boys, we have always loved being outdoors with them on family trips. We started out camping in a $600 pop up trailer about 10 years ago and loved having a place away from home to just hang out. A few campers later and we found ourselves falling in love with Lake Sherwood as a camping area for our family. Playing at the Beach, kayaking around the lake, and being together as a family created special memories. Villa Vakashon was a God thing. We were camping out there four years ago and stumbled into the perfect fit for us. A house on the main lake that was literally new construction and could be large enough to share with other families and reasonable enough to be affordable for rentals. We've shared it so many times with friends and families and everyone who goes, falls in love. From the beginning, we set up the house as a perfect getaway for a rental. Fully stocked with all the necessities to make it painless to throw some food in and some clothes and head out there. There is something magical about the place and the serenity you feel coming through the Security gates. I love it. The stress melts away and I feel 10 years younger.
Marc & Melanie Braun purchased this house in 2010
Why Marc & Melanie Braun chose Innsbrook
Why St. Louis? Villa Vakashon is only 25 minutes from Chesterfield and less than an hour from downtown St Louis/Cardinal Baseball/Rams and most St. Louis Tourist Attractions makes this a perfect getaway without taking forever to arrive. There is so much to do around this area that one could spend several days without even taking advantage of all St Louis has to offer. The wineries, Katy's Trail (hiking and biking), shopping nearby, golf courses within 20 minutes and enjoying all Lake Sherwood has is a vacation in itself.
What makes this house unique
The house is large enough where kids can hang out downstairs and the parents up and you can feel comfortable with two 5 person families. There are 5 queen beds and a few additional cots if necessary to make any sleeping arrangements work. I also love that there is a full pavilion at the park just 200 yards away that we can invite even more people to join us for the day if we'd like. Walkable to the Dam which is our favorite swimming and fishing hole.
