A peaceful country retreat nestled on top of Paradise Bluff overlooking the cool spring fed Gasconade River. Relax out back on the large deck shaded by mighty white oaks and towering hickory trees, while you enjoy watching the deer and turkey along with other wildlife venture by plus, the presence of a pair of Bald Eagles nesting in the area is a beautiful sight!
Your new found hide-a-way is located on sixteen and a half private acres in Osage County, just two hours West of St Louis and three hours East of Kansas City. Located just South of Linn on Hwy 89.
In your new guest home you will find a fully equipped kitchen with a laundry room, pantry, dining room and living room all adjoining. The living room features a large fireplace for cold winter nights in Missouri. The master bedroom accommodates well with a king size bed along with a beautifully handcrafted walnut bedroom set. It includes a master bathroom and a walk out door onto the large deck over looking the river.
Our family group of five greatly enjoyed our stay in "Paradise"! We were impressed with the scenery, the beautiful home, the solitude, and all of the more than generous amenities provided by the hosts, Susie and Steve. They went above and beyond what anyone could ever expect to make our stay a wonderfully memorable one. The home was immaculately clean and comfortable and proved to be the most thoroughly provisioned rental that we have ever experienced - ah, the incredible pantry. The spacious deck answered all of our grilling and lounging desires. The trips to the towns in the area were impressive in that we learned about the history of the area, saw beautiful countryside, ate at wonderful restaurants, visited and toured a good number of the most impressive wineries that we have ever visited.
The listing's description and photos depicted the property exactly. My family has stayed at the Paradise Bluff property for the last two years and we are looking forward to this years visit. The activities that we have enjoyed as a family are: visiting the near by winery's, floating the river, and hanging out in the secluded property.
Making the arrangements for our gal pal stay was quite easy with the owners. They answered all my questions promptly and offered additional information as well. The beds were comfy, the place was immaculately cared for, and the owners very kind and attentive. That pantry was the envy of all of us! The deck area was where we spent much of our time and even in very hot weather, allowed a breeze near the river side. Since the river level fluctuates it is difficult to make accessing it a breeze. The hill path that leads directly to the river is tricky and should be approached with caution by older folks. A dock and a few trees cut to allow a river view are the ONLY things this place needs to be perfect. We were well pleased and hope to visit again in the fall or winter. Thank you so much for sharing your paradise with us. The Thriftway in a nearby town has all the groceries you need so there's no need to shop ahead. AND the owner directions to the home were excellent.
We had our Boy Scout troop outing here. The property was very well maintained. The scouts in the troop canoed on the Gasconade, had a bonfire, played a variety of games around the property. We were, also, able to watch the St. Louis Cardinals play in the World Series in the house. Overall we had a great time and look forward to using the property, again, in the future. Thank you Steve for hosting our troop and helping to ensure a good time was had by all.
What started as a weekend getaway for the immediate family evolved into a family reunion with relatives coming from Ohio and Kansas. All were very impressed by the cleanliness of the house, how well stocked it was, and how relaxing it was. We swam in the Gasconade, fished, had a bonfire, played games, watched TV and went for walks. There was plenty of room to spread out and make ourselves at home. Steve and Susie were prompt in answering all our questions and were very accomodating, especially considering the fluctuations in the number of guests. We will definitely recommend this property to everyone looking for a peaceful place to stay.
Thanks so much, Steve, for allowing us use of your home for our getaway! Very peaceful setting, a beautiful, clean home (we envied the big pantry!). The river was peaceful and beautiful. The countryside was so green! We visited Hermann and the Stone Hill Winery (excellant lunch). We would stay here again! Thanks so much!!
We are located in Central Missouri and just 45 minutes from Hermann and St. James wineries. Close by is one of the best kept secrets of Missouri geological wonders. Since we are located in the northern part of the Ozark mountains accessibility is easy. As we are just 6 miles from US Hwy 50, but still quiet and peaceful.
During the summer every Sunday one of the local Catholic parishes holds their annual parish picnic. The food is wonderful and they serve home style cooking ranging from country fried chicken, ham to German pot roast along with all the extras to go with the meal. Be sure and check out the country store for lots of home made goodies and stay around for the quilt auction! All quilts are hand sewn by the parish lady's.
Other Activities: Floating, scenic drives, tent camping, extra canoes available upon request
