Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

As our family has grown and gone our separate ways we have set it up to get together every 4 years. It is often difficult to find a place that can accommodate all the kids, grandkids, etc. The Crider Creek Lodge was the perfect getaway for us. In many ways it resembled our parents place and made us feel right at home. We loved all being able to be under one roof with ample space to move around and things to do. The kids took many walks in the woods and explored things. The backyard area was perfect with the horseshoe pit, fire pit, and area to play some games that we brought like Spike ball and Kan Jam. Inside there were plenty of bedrooms for the adults to all have their own rooms and the kids used the loft area. And the table areas were perfect for playing board/card games. It is definitely a place that we will consider reserving again.

Beautiful restored barn on lovely property.

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My family rented this place to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. We needed lots of room for this "girls" weekend as we had 21 people throughout the weekend. The place was large enough to have a place for everyone to lay their head. The property was neat and well maintained. We had one issue with the toilet not flushing because of a rusted out chain, but the caretaker promptly replaced it. This would be a great place to gather for a family, a girls weekend, or a retreat. Peaceful, great scenery and a beautifully decorated place. We will definitely return!

Beautiful Location - extreme solitude! traffic is near zero - internet service is zero

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Beautiful location / home - property - wildlife - fishing - trails and cool creek to wade in absolutely no regrets just peaceful and serine. House was plenty large - more than enough room for our 16 and then some if needed, all amenities in home were great- short on towels and was instructed not to drink water - use for anything but no drink - they supplied bottled so it was ok. Also new satellite service had been installed, every bed room had TV but only kitchen and living room worked on satellite all the rest were functional but no live TV. Kids played all board games - cards - was just great time all around.

Pond was great - was also told to keep an eye out for lures and hooks all /any normal fishing stuff that might have gotten lost in water so - for us all normal and let me say kids were in pond a lot and water was fresh - spring feed so all good.

Due to internet service issue - meaning there was none through any hotspot or individual phone, including resetting the router more times than can be counted I was forced to unplug. Let me say this is the first time in at least 10yrs I have had to disconnect from the internet and let it go - just be on vacation, it was difficult for sure but after accepting that fact it was not going to get better than it was - I just enjoyed vacation and the solitude.

Nothing bad - Negative to say great place!

Very accomadating lodge for our large group which was in Mo for a family reunion.

Loved the remote location and peacefulness of the location.

Everything exceeded my expectations.

Owner and caretaker were very easy to work with relative to booking and check in/out.

Perfect family vacation lodge for a LARGE family that enjoys outdoors and just hanging out together

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This vacation lodge was perfect for our family of 17, which included people ages 1 - 58! There was comfortable sleeping for everyone, very clean, and a great kitchen for cooking, as we cooked every meal there, either inside or on the smoker grill, or gas grill. We fished and enjoyed the canoe on the small pond, and also had a lovely fire in the fire pit one night. The stars were amazing at night, because this is out in the boonies and we loved that! One day we went into St. Louis to enjoy City Museum, and although it was about 2 hours, it was worth the trip. The property manager was great to work with. We were glad that it was a no smoking lodge. It was clean and everything was there that we could possibly need. Highly recommended.

Fifteen people in our family spent 4 days here in July. We had great opportunities to spread out and also spend time together.
