This is truly a paradise for the most private of parties. Our home cannot even be found on MapQuest. They have the location wrong and so far have not fixed it! Lock the gate behind you and no one will enter unless you want them too! This home cannot be seen by the road and nobody knows you are here, but me! This is my private home and now that I am an empty nester I thought I would like to share it with others, so you can experience the beauty of nature and the unique architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright's teachings. Once you arrive you will not want to leave! Every day is a new day here with something different to see. I promise you, you won't be disappointed, you may not even want to leave!

This was our 4th home, we actually bought it to develop the property around the lake and once we moved here, in August 1995, we couldn't do it! With our children grown we thought why not allow others to enjoy this beauty, it's so peaceful and inspirational! The response was so great the first year, 2009, that I continued doing it after my husbands passing, October 2009. It warms my heart to know that so many people travel from all over the United States to meet family & friends here to create wonderful memories! I really enjoy meeting everyone and I hope to be doing this for many years to come!
Donna Long purchased this estate in 1995
This was our personal home where we raised our two children for 15 years! It's a private paradise that is relaxing, rejuvenating, very peaceful, and inspirational! I'm sure you will find it the same! We are close to Six Flags, Wine Country, and about 40-50 minutes to downtown St. Louis.
You will enjoy getting back to nature here. It is your own private resort to enjoy with your close personal friends and family! Swim in the pool or lake, kayak, pedal the paddle boats/LOL, enjoy the sounds of nature or the outdoor music, fish, hike, relax and listen to water trickling into the concrete pond, have a bonfire in your own private park by the lake and roast some marshmallows by the open fire while watching the moon dance across the lake - if your lucky it'll be a full moon - how romantic will that be? Best of all enjoy the architecture of this Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home that was designed by one of his apprentices, Ralph Fournier and the previous owner, built in 1970 and 2nd story added on by us in 1998.
Words can not begin to express the wonderful time my family had being together in your amazing home! Everything was perfect and the surroundings, breath taking! I don't believe I could have found anything more enjoyable and relaxing. We take with us so many great memories and pictures. Everyone is already hoping we do this again next year and make it a family tradition! Thanks for everything!
Really enjoyed the week end!!!
The kids had fine time even though the pool was cold. The other kids (the grown-up ones)We had fun also but could not handle the pool. We enjoyed everything on the trip though
We had a great time in MO. The house and property were better in person then in the pictures, if you can believe that ;-) Our whole family (from 5 mos. to 77 years old) enjoyed every moment. There was always something to do: swim, fish, boat, fly drones, fireworks, and smores. The only time some of us left was to go to the grocery store or to get worms(which is close by). The house was very spacious and perfect for several families. We were really surprised at how sound proof it was from room to room. Donna was available and very helpful. Looking forward to next year.
As always, Another Great Time. My family fly's in once a year each summer. We used to go to Branson or the Lake of the Ozarks. This is our 3rd year staying here. The amenities keep the entire family busy, rain or shine. The paddle boats and kayaks are a hit as always. The property is very well kept and we cant wait to come next year. We had a few special requests and Donna made it all happen including the good weather we requested.
My first stay at Ms D. Longs private home was April 2015 and came back often, last time was May 2016. She is the host of host, she can read your mind as what your needs may be. I prefer the winter months. Waking up and looking out over the lake and watching the mist rise is breath taking. The evenings in front of the massive fireplace is so romantic, I recommend Ms Longs home for any occasion. I fell in love with her home and feel in love there as well..
Thank you Donna for sharing your Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home with us for our week's vacation. Nine of us enjoyed fishing, swimming, grilling, hiking, setting off fireworks, playing piano, and bonding as a family. Even with a couple days of rain, there was always something to do. The only times we left were for a Cardinal Baseball game, and shopping. Thanks again; you are an awesome hostess! We hope to return!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week at this beautiful property. The pool, lake with the kayaks , and the large outdoor areas were wonderful. Grandchildren ranging in age 8 to 23 spent many hours using the pool and lake. We drove to downtown St. Louis to visit the zoo, science station, Grants Farm, a Cardinals game, and a must visit to the City Museum!,and a new, close by attraction, Purina Farms. However it was always nice to get back to the peacefulness at the house.
Shopping for groceries was convenient at the nearby Super Walmart.
Donna Long was wonderful about getting us anything we asked for, and called to check how things were going.
We would recommend this for a great family vacation.
