Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Full Bath 1300 Sq Ft Private Home

Historic Victorian cottage in downtown residential neighborhood has been newly remodeled. Light filled and clean, this fully restored home has many windows, original yellow pine flooring, decorative wood trim finishes, and tall ceilings.

Master bedroom with queen bed and large master bath with soaking tub. Second bedroom with queen bed and an additional full bath. The newly remodeled kitchen includes a breakfast bar, gas range, and appliances. Both back and front yard are quiet and secluded with two porches, a patio, and grill.

Faurot field is a quick drive or a 1.5 mile easy walk through the University of Missouri campus. Downtown district is .75 mile walk through Stephens College campus. Stephens College, Stephens Lake Park, and Columbia College are all close by. Convenient central location makes this cottage perfect if you are attending special events, such as MU games, graduations, Citizen Jane, True/False, or Roots n Blues, staying in town for business, visiting family, or vacationing in central Missouri.

Update summer 2016 - I've just gone through some major rehab, with all new paint on the inside and outside. The house looks great!

Extended stay guests welcome!

About Sarah Bantz

Hello! I moved to Columbia in 1996 and earned a Master's Degree from the MU College of Agriculture. Since then, I have worked in the downtown arts scene, grown and sold vegetables at the Columbia Farmer's Market, and rehabbed this house! Today, I work as an accountant.

Sarah Bantz purchased this house in 2005

Why Sarah Bantz chose Missouri

Once, two older ladies teetered up my front steps to tell me they had lived here as girls in the late 1920s, with a party line phone in the front hall and a cow in the back yard. Sometime later, an overfull car of middle aged men stopped me in the yard to say they had lived and partied here in the 1970s. I bought the house in 2005, stripped it down to the shell, and have been putting it back together ever since...for better or for worse. I have no doubt you will enjoy spending time in this home.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently had a great weekend in Columbia. Our stay at this Home Away house was like gathering in our own home. We had all the amenities we needed and were very comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed to help us cook our meals. Bathrooms are nice. Neighborhood is safe. Our kids went jogging every morning at a nearby park. We went to a nearby winery one afternoon and got familiar with the city. Our hostess was very quick to answer any of our questions before and during our stay.We hope to stay there again.

Cute & Convenient

  • 4 of 5

We spent one night at Sarah's place. The house was a clean / cute retreat from our wedding festivities. We loved the antique furnishings and found a little stash of board games under the coffee table. If your looking for affordable / trouble free accommodations. I'd highly recommend this house.

Adorable Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My family decided to look for a cottage instead of 2 hotel rooms. We made a great decision! The owner responded quickly to my e-mails and texts. Everyone loved the cottage and the decor was inviting and we felt like we were at home. The kitchen was more than stocked with anything you needed to cook. We are a family that loves to cook and we were able to prepare a great dinner.

I know when I return to Columbia I will be contacting Sarah first! Again, I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is planning on visiting Columbia and want to feel like they are at home.

Columbia home

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this house for the weekend. The house is old and could reasy

This house could really use more updating. There were cobwebs and a musty smell. The owner was pleasant but the inside and outside of the home was neglected. It would be fine for a young group or a brief visit to Columbia.
