About The Owner

My husband and I are both educators. We enjoy vacationing with our grown children and extended family.

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

Why The Owner chose Missouri

This is the home I grew up in. In 2008 we took a family trip with our grown children and stayed in a vacation rental home. We enjoyed cooking together and relaxing in a home. We thought this home would be great for families coming to Fort Leonard Wood for graduations and to visit family.

Great house! We had 12 people and plenty of space to spread out and spend time with our soldier.

  • 5 of 5

Owners were very friendly. Found everything we needed. Beds were very comfortable and everything was clean. The house lives very big. Close to everything you could possibly need. Wonderful place for family togetherness. It's not fancy but it's homey and perfect for a large group. Highly recommend for families with soldiers graduating from Basic Training at Fort Leonard Wood who need a place to gather, relax and enjoy each other's company. Note...we took the kids down the street to the Cherokee campground to Roubidoux Springs for a swim (recommended by the local antique shop owner, also very friendly) and they loved it. It's a beautiful place to take pictures as well. Great little town!

Perfect stay for visiting our recruit!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best place to stay for visiting your recruit. Close to Fort Leonard Wood and nearby grocery. Awesome owners who showed up with new chairs for the patio. Plenty of room for the eight of us and the most heavenly king bed in the master! We were able to make home made dinners, which our recruit enjoyed very much and roomy backyard to throw a football or frisbee. We highly recommend this VRBO and would definitely stay again. Thank you John and Ann!

Perfect home for a soldier's family

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay was so enjoyable! This home has all the amenities of home! It is warm and inviting! The home is clean and well stocked with everything you could need! We had more than enough room and space to enjoy with our soldier on Family Day! The patio was lovely and we were able to spend time outside and enjoy.

The owners were great about checking in on us even bringing us by some homemade bread!

I would recommend this home to large family visiting the area! Thanks for sharing your home with so many military families!!

Owner's Response: Stephanie, thanks so much for the sweet and glowing review. We try our best to make it feel like home with everything you might need except the food. We're so glad you came, that you chose to stay with us and that you enjoyed our home and the time you all spent together. I particularly liked your sign painted on your back windshield that read "move over we're coming to see our soldier".

Thanks again so very much, hope you had a safe trip home and are doing well. back atcha with the Kudos...Sincerely John and Ann

We stayed here with family from Boston to Tacoma. John went out of his way to make us feel at home and comfortable. He was referred to us actually by his mother, God bless her soul. We were taken very good care of by him. Great place to get together with family!♡♡

Car: necessary

One mile from trophy trout fishing and city park with playground, splash park and spring at Roubidoux parks. Several nearby rivers with canoe rental, near Mark Twain National Forest, 4 blocks from tennis courts and basketball goals (not available during school hours). One mile from Old Stagecoach Stop and historical court house, community theatre, and B & B Theaters Cinema 12. One block off Historic Route 66. Five miles to Saint Robert municipal indoor pool and small seasonal waterpark.

Old Stagecoach Museum on the square in Waynesville is open for tours Wednesdays and Saturdays, April to September.

The square in Waynesville offers an ice cream shop, gift shops, and pubs, taverns and restaurants.

As you go east through Saint Robert to get to the main gate of Fort Leonard Wood, you'll pass the only remaining original Route 66 roadside park in Missouri, now with the addition of a military tank. Route 66 enthusiasts find our home a great base from which to explore landmarks to the east and west, as route runs right through Waynesville. Visit the scenic and historic bridge route though Devil's Elbow and envision it with trucks and cross-country traffic to understand why the Pulaski County section of Route 66 was called Bloody 66. The bluffs surrounding Devil's Elbow were once listed as one of the seven scenic wonders of Missouri.

Fort Leonard Wood features a free indoor-outdoor military museum and free batting cages. Small fees for bowling and fishing (MO fishing license required). Military families can shop at the PX and commissary.

Public golf courses in the area include the 18-hole Piney Valley Golf Course and driving range on Fort Leonard Wood. Saint Robert Municipal Golf Course, Richland Country Club and Public Golf, and Oak Hills Country Club Golf, Dixon, are all 9-hole courses.

50 miles from the large outlet mall at the Lake of the Ozarks, in Osage Beach, Missouri. 80 miles to Springfield, MO, home of Bass Pro shops. One hour and forty-five minutes to Branson, MO.

Jefferson City, MO, the state capital is 75 miles north. There you can join historical and ghost tours at the Missouri State Penitentiary which operated from 1836 to 2004 (reservations required). The inside of the Missouri State Capital building was recently rated as being the most beautiful of all 50 United State capitals by USAToday. The drive to Jefferson City is very scenic, and takes just short of 1.5 hours.
