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.

We totally enjoyed our stay! The amenities were perfect for our extended family stay. I absolutely recommend this property! The kitchen is complete for all cooking needs, the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. We relaxed and cooked, and enjoyed the backyard fire pit and grill! Wonderful property!

Very Spacious, Close to Base, Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay with family. Lots of space to spread out in. We rented this when our son was graduating from BCT at Fort Leonard Wood. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good family home feeling. The owners are great to work with. Thank you for making everything a little smoother during a joyous and stressful time. Christine

This property is awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

So much space and very homey. All you need to bring is clothes, food and toothbrush. Everything is provided for you. Awesome hosts as well. John and Ann Jarrett are very accommodating and answer any questions you have. Loved spending time with my Soldier a.d much needed time and rest for her was great. Accomodated 12 of us with plenty of room to breathe. Great back yard to relax and grill for a big family! Would highly recommend anyone staying here!!! Go Bravo Company, 31st Engineer Battalion, 1st Platoon!!!

This was the perfect place for nine of us to stay for our son's Military Police graduation.

  • 5 of 5

This property was ideal for the nine of us to stay for our son's graduation at Fort Leonard Wood. Overall everything was very nice. Lots of room and a great price. Very close to the post and stores, gas stations, restaurants, water park, etc. Much nicer oval experience than a hotel. Very pleased overall.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit with our son who was graduating basic training from Fort Leonard Wood. The house was large enough to accommodate the 10 of us! Jon was very nice to talk with and even called during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed! Thanks!

Historic Route 66
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.
