About Rich and Gail
From Yankton, we live in the San Francisco Bay Area, working in high tech and real estate. We enjoy spending time in Yankton creating memories with family and friends!
Rich and Gail purchased this House in 2017
Why Rich and Gail chose Yankton
I grew up on the Missouri River and jumped at the chance of owning a truly unique property with lots of privacy and plenty of riverfront. We wanted a place to use when we visit family and friends. If you want leave your RV for awhile, you will not find more comfortable beds! The estate has over 2 acres of lawn area - I think it's time to build a softball field - field of dreams on the River. Based on our experiences staying at vacation rentals we wanted to make sure we had extra comfortable mattresses, clean and organized living areas with amenities you can count on- PS we have setup a skating rink weather permitting.

Great Property for Us
This home worked great for us. We stayed 3 nights with our high school golf team, coach, one little sister, and a couple of dads. We were gone during the day, but the kids spent the whole evenings (and most the night) fishing out the backyard, and playing pool and video games in the downstairs game room. They had a blast. House was clean and spacious. Really only a couple drawbacks to the place overall: 1. The upstairs bathroom only has a bath and no shower. So anyone staying in the bedroom upstairs with the queen and bunk bed, have to either go through the master bedroom to shower in the master shower (which is open to the bedroom), or go downstairs to use the other bathroom shared by the two downstairs bedrooms. It was a minor inconvenience being not everyone staying was close family with each other. 2. There was nothing in the fridge. No ketchup, no butter, no barbecue sauce, just some water in a water filter. That isn't a big deal, and maybe it's even common. I've only stayed at 3 other VRBO properties, but each one of them had some level of food, condiments, coffee, or whatever the guests can use, and then leave whatever they buy for the next person. Again, not a big deal, but had I known going in I might have brought some stuff from home rather then have to but everything at the store. Anyway, we had a great time and are so glad we booked here rather then stay at hotels, and would definitely recommend this property!
Beautiful vacation home!
Thank you for sharing your Beautiful home...it was perfect for our Family get away! There was plenty of room for each of us to enjoy our stay and the home was fully equipped! I would recommend this home to others!
Our Stay was Fantastic.. The house had everything possible that we needed..
We had the pleasure of staying at this place recently. The weather unfortunately did not cooperate with us and it rained the entire weekend so we could not get on the river to see the beautiful scenery. But with that said we had plenty of family time in the house. It had everything we needed plus some as we spent every minute inside because of the weather. Everything from the décor and house setup was beautiful. The beds were comfortable and the master shower was enjoyable as well as the large tub for the kids to bath in. I would recommend this house to Anyone. And the owners were very responsive and helpful as well. Great Place, Great Stay

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATION !!!!
If I could give it more than five stars I would. Every room in the house was either brand new or almost new. Each room planned and thought out perfectly! Towels , bedding, etc. laid out in each room as if you were in the finest of hotels. Master Bedroom was amazing with personal washer and dryers. Separate bathroom with additional set of washer and dryer for other guests on main floor. So many gathering rooms to relax and enjoy each others company. Enough tv/entertainment rooms for young children to have their own area while adult had the choice of the main living room or fully furnished area to play pool, air hockey or just relax and watch tv. Not only was there a spectacular kitchen area for cooking but another "sink/refrigerator "entertainment area to store extra drinks, etc. We were only 8 utilizing the four bedrooms but there is plenty of room to sleep for 12 when taking into consideration the pull out and basement space. Huge riverfront area for family games, etc.
Kitchen was stocked with nice dishes, glasses,, two coffee makers, blender, pots and pans. The only items lacking were some serving platters for dinners and a couple of utensils like a whisk and potato peeler (which is so very minor but thought I would mention to owners as these would be useful cooking utensils). Also beautiful towel sets left in each bedroom for each person were missing washcloths. Like I said so very minor but since the owners seem to want to make everything PERFECT for renters I thought it best to mention.
The artwork throughout the house was beautiful and fitting to the rest of the well thought out custom house. The dining area fit 8 comfortably but could be stretched to 12 with the additional leaves. Plenty of seating in dining room, living room area and around kitchen barstools. The guest bathroom on the mainfloor had a beautiful sunken tub , although personally I would prefer a shower as our group could have used another shower instead of a tub but that is just personal preference.
As I said if I could have given this place more stars I would have. The owners were very easy to deal with and very responsive.
GREAT FAMILY VACATION CELEBRATING OUR DAD'S 85TH BIRTHDAY !!!!!

We gathered together...
...for a wedding! This beautiful, spacious property was shared by multiple generations ranging in age from six months to retired senior. The layout was spectacular - providing spaces to be alone and gathered together. Finishes were refined yet comfortable. Amenities were abundant - there wasn't anything we needed (or wanted) that wasn't provided. Access was easy, location was quiet, proximity to town was convenient. This property should be at the top of everyone's list!
