Great location - great people

  • 5 of 5

Nice place in the country. The house is cozy. The property has nice places to walk, sit by a pond, and gaze at the chickens. The hosts are very nice people - they made sure we had everything we need. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Andrew and his family rented our place for his daughter's birthday party. We are so glad that we had plenty of space for all her friends to come celebrate, take group pictures by the pond, and have the time to chill out at our little getaway. Thanks Andy for the time to chat a bit before you headed home. Welcome back anytime!

Location perfect to get away and still have CoMO fun

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay. Tony and Melynda were kind and accommodating. The location was perfect for my tastes... just a little outside of town, so you feel like you're getting away. But close enough to have easy access to all the amenities you like in CoMO. If I were to say one thing negative, it's that the walls/ceiling carry noise well. If you're a light sleeper, consider bringing white noise.

We will stay here again. Great for families, or groups that want to unplug at the end/beginning of the day.

Columbia MO

  • 4 of 5

nice place - quiet and only 10 minutes to downtown. would be a stretch to call it 2 bedroom - one cozy BR with another room alcove (not much privacy). On lower level, so you can hear footsteps above if owners at home. Bathroom adequate - could not find toaster. Owner Tony nice and helpful.

Clean, comfortable, with nice surroundings. Very helpful hosts.

  • 4 of 5

Super nice hosts. Made us cinnamon buns! The place was very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay. Only cons: it was a bit of a drive from town. Also, I didn't realize there was no stove, so cooking meals there wasn't really an option. It is a nicely furnished basement with big glass doors looking out to the garden. Hosts live above. May have been on listing and I just missed it.

Nice retreat in Columbia

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here for a Graduation at Mizzou. The home is located not too far from downtown Columbia where we were able to take an Uber (roughly $16 each way). There were bottles of water, coffee, tea, popcorn as well as additional toiletries in case we forgot anything.

The only minor issue we had was that the iron was missing from the home, but we figured out a way to get around that.

Owner's Response: We thank Justin for choosing our place for your graduation stay. We are glad you liked our place, and apologize for the missing iron. Honestly, we don't get many requests for the iron, even though we advertise it as an amenity. And glad to report that we have already replaced the missing unit. We hope you had a wonderful family weekend in Columbia and safe travels to and from Nashville.
