Welcome to our lovely guest house! This beautiful living space was created within a larger warehouse building as a modern, comfortable and private oasis for those seeking relaxation, an undisturbed working environment, and communication with nature. We are located in the community of Millersburg, just east of downtown Columbia where an easy drive will have you in Columbia in 15 minutes or Fulton in 20 minutes. The apartment overlooks 26 acres of private land, and features a large master bedroom suite with mission-style furniture, queen-sized bed, and hardwood floors. Relax in the deep soaker tub with beautiful views of the countryside from the large picture window. The master bath also features a separate glass shower and dual sinks. The kitchen is fully furnished, contains all new stainless steel appliances, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster. The second bedroom contains a queen-sized bed and desk, and the powder room features a copper-bowl raised sink. The main living and dining area is bright and airy with a large sliding glass door leading to the sun deck. If you prefer to relax at home, there is an entertainment center with 36 inch flat screen TV, DVD, satellite television, portable radio with CD and I-pod/ I-phone input options, and high-speed wireless Internet access.
Columbia holds many activities for visitors. Home to 3 centers for higher learning, there are educational, sporting, art, music, and theater events virtually year-round. The University of Missouri Concert Series brings world-renowned performers and Broadway shows to the area on a regular basis. Columbia also hosts 2 film festivals yearly, as well as the autumn Roots, Blues, and Barbeque festival. There are great locally owned restaurants, brew pubs, coffee houses, art galleries, and apparel shops downtown. There are many live music venues and nightclubs for entertainment for all tastes. For kids, there are playgrounds at many downtown parks, Flat Branch Park offers a “spray ground” for warm weather fun, and Stephens Lake Park features a lake swimming area for families. Columbia also hosts the Show-Me State Games each summer, as well as other statewide sporting events. For those wishing to spend time outdoors, Little Dixie Lake, managed by the Missouri Conservation Department, is 2 miles away, with fishing and a 6 mile hiking trail. Rock Bridge State Park is just south of Columbia with numerous hiking trails, and trail access at the Mark Twain National Forest is within 10-15 minutes. Columbia is also the origin of the Rails-to Trails MKT Trail, a 10-mile biking and hiking trail that connects to the 225 mile Katy Trail, the longest Rails-to Trails park in the United States.
We are happy to entertain any questions about the location or furnishings of our apartment, or activities in the surrounding area.

Owner purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Owner chose Columbia Township
We moved to Columbia in 1999, and into our present location in 2001. We have completely fallen in love with this area and have made it our permanent home. We purchased the warehouse from next-door neighbors in 2006 and added the apartment to use as a guest house for our own home. In between using the apartment for personal use, we decided to make it available as a VRBO property given our positive experiences with rentals we had taken while traveling.
What makes this Apartment unique
This property provides a great opportunity to visit many wonderful places in and around the mid-Missouri area, and to get together with families and attend University functions. The outdoor space provides wonderful country views in an uncrowded space.

Wonderful Place to Stay!
Had a great visit at this very nice an spacious apartment with our two dogs. Out in the country but close enough to town. We were in town for an dog agility trial so only a sort drive to the trial site. Very relaxing weekend.
Sue, thank you so much for your kind response. We are glad you found our place to be comfortable and welcoming for you and your dogs!
Can't wait till our next visit!
My family of 5, three college age, and our large Standard Poodle stayed here four days after Christmas. Was a perfect get away! We loved the country feel, the peace and quiet, and the stars at night. It's also only a 15 minute scenic drive to Columbia. I rented this place because others commented on how comfortable the beds were. They were right! I even wrote down the type of mattress so I could purchase one for myself. The house is clean, comfortable, and has everything you could ever need. Can't wait till we need to visit that area again!
Wanda, we are thrilled you and your family had such a great stay! Please let us know when your plans include Columbia in the future.
Perfect Alternative to a Hotel
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the guest house! The owners were quite accommodating of our group of 4, and the guest house was quite comfortable and picturesque! I would definitely stay here again on any future trips to Columbia!
Lovely place if you visiting Columbia
Visited over Christmas for four days. Place is well kept, out in the country and away from the noise and congestion of a college campus. Very comfortable and homey and a perfect place for Christmas...
A piece of heaven in Columbia!
My fiance and I stayed here for a week, and it was SO much more than we ever expected! What a beautiful piece of property. A nice taste of the country life minutes away from everything vital in Columbia. The ladies that own/operate the property are a serendipitous addition to the package...beautiful souls that provide any and everything you might need. The tub...ohh, the tub :) The bed is so very comfortable. I can't say enough about the wonderful time my family had catching up with each other and spending time in such a beautiful place. ~Bob and Karen
Thanks Bob and Karen - so happy you had a wonderful experience!

We rented the guest house during a family reunion in Fulton. We were absolutely delighted! The house is charming and well provided with necessaries. The area is quiet and private. The back deck offers a beautiful meadow scene if you enjoy cooking out or just sitting around. The owners are very friendly and wonderful to deal with. We couldn't have been more pleased! Highly recommended.
