Overview

Columbia Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

This secluded, forested, equestrian, hunting and fishing property is located on 70 private acres surrounded by thousands of acres of state owned land, the Rudolf-Bennitt Conservation Area.

The home/garage was built by Morton Builders in 2008 and includes many upgrades and finishes. The beautiful kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, etc. It is on city water with a caretaker nearby should you need assistance with anything.

The pasture by the house has horse-safe, smooth-wire fencing and a water spigot is in the pasture. There is a horse-safe barn-type shelter with lights and is open at either end. A hitching rail is provided under one of the large, old oaks at the garage end. Saddle racks in the garage can be used as well as bridle holders. Bring your own hay.

Sit on the large, covered porches and listen to the whip-poor-wills and coyotes! Hunting on the property is not allowed but the Conservation Area (C.A.) land allows hunting; fishing at the 48+ acre stocked Bennitt lake is a great time.

You can golf at the nearby 'Windmill Golfcourse' which is on Rt. B near Clark. It is an 18-hole public course with carts for rent. The Amish are very well-known for their craftsmanship and you will be in the heart of it here. A map is provided at the cottage for your convenience and shopping experience with the Amish.

If you like to Antique you are in luck! Go to Centralia or Sturgeon for a quaint look around at the antique shops there. While in Centralia be sure to stop at the AB Chance Historic Home and Gardens. Just ask locals for directions. It is beautiful!

Also in Centralia is an historic Civil War site where 'Bloody Bill Anderson' killed many Union soldiers.

If you want to attract more birds to the house be sure to bring a bag of seed for the lovely feeder located outside and you can sit in the house and birdwatch! (Squirrels too.)

About Tom Clinton

Hi! My name is Donna and I am a Missouri girl by birth and then a Montana girl by 'accident'. (I went to Bozeman, MT for a visit and stayed there for 20 years!) We recently moved back to Columbia, Missouri in 2011. We bought 'Twin Oaks' a few years ago when we were in Montana and started it on VRBO. It has been so well received by all, that we have kept it in the program. MT has mountains but only MO has the oak/hickory forests and wildlife that I love so well. I have a BS in Wildlife Biology from MO so I truly love everything about our home here. I got my MS in Bozeman in Land Rehabilitation and so my connection with the land runs deep. My husband and I feel that this MO property is very special and beautiful. He loves the big trees and green forest. It is a place we go to 'recharge our batteries' through nature!

Tom Clinton purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Tom Clinton chose Columbia

We chose this location because it is: 1) Beautiful land with rolling MO hills like you usually only find in the Ozarks; 2) It is surrounded by 3,500+ acres of Conservation Area land so the wildlife is abundant; 3) It is equestrian friendly property! Trails, barn, pasture; and 4) MO is home and close to friends and family.

What makes this cottage unique

From the porch you can hear the whip-poor-wills and coyotes, see the wild turkeys, deer, many song birds, and at night see thousands of lightening bugs. You see and hear quail, squirrels, fox, raccoons, etc. You can drive or ride a few miles and fish at a the large (48 ac.), stocked lake. You can ride your horse for miles and miles on improved trails through the woods and fields. If we wanted to we could hunt throughout the C.A. as well as our property. The covered porches are great gathering places for friends, food and fun. I also like to antique in nearby Harrisburg and along Hwy. 63N near the Sturgeon exit and at the little towns all around. We have a neighbor who brings his wagon team over and takes us and the kids for a ride! We have great neighbors who are good people.

Fabulous Find! Wish We Had Found This Wonderful Property Sooner!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this lovely home when we were in the area and wanted a quiet environment to relax, no hotel chaos for us. From the moment we arrived we didn't want to leave. My husband even said "can't we just have everyone come visit us here?" and I agreed. It was so peaceful and relaxing and we both came home feeling more refreshed than on previous vacations. I would highly recommend this property if you're looking for a place to unplug and unwind. Each day as I enjoyed my coffee on the porch at sunrise I was serenaded by turkeys gobbling their morning greeting. The wildlife was plentiful and we even saw deer in the front yard.

I would absolutely recommend this rental and am hoping we get the chance to stay there again.

Excellent Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here over Memorial Weekend in 2011 and really enjoyed our stay. We would highly recommend this vacation get-away to anyone looking for some R&R in Mid-Missouri. Great owners and secluded (but easy to find) made this a great place to stay. We were really surprised to find a large kitchen with all the appliances/utensil you could need inside and a wonderful scenic environment to explore outside. We look forward to staying here again the future!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We rented the place for a long weekend and were pleased to find everything just as advetised. The house is beautiful and well furnished. We cooked on the grill and enjoyed eating at home. Having a garage with automatic opener was a real plus. The property is beautiful and the perfect place for getting away from work for a few days. We look forward to coming again next year.

Modern, clean, comfortable home in beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with another couple for the weekend for a friend's wedding in Columbia, MO and had a wonderful time. The house was well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. Everything was very new, modern and clean. The property was gorgeous, we stayed in October and the leaves were beautiful. We found a rake in the garage and raked huge piles of leaves for the kids to jump in. The yard was perfect for the kids, plenty of space for running, blowing bubbles and playing bocce ball.

The owners were wonderful to work with, very prompt and returned our deposit quickly. Our only negatives were that there was no dishwasher and no dining room table, so eating at the breakfast bar on stools was the only option. But overall, a great place at a great price. We highly recommend it!

What an amazing place to land!!!

  • 5 of 5
We flew to Missouri to visit family in Moberly for the 4th of July Holiday & stayed for a little over a week. This home was absolutely spacious, cozy, & the property lush and beautiful. What a sweet find & amazing value. You won't regret the choice to skip cramped hotels & eating all your food out for this lovely alternative!

The house offers lots of privacy and tranquility. The lush rolling green hills & winding roads made for a thoroughly enjoyable traveling experience. There were so many amenities, we almost felt like our week was not long enough to enjoy them all.

Nearby Bennit lake offers lovely picnicking areas, swimming, pathways & great fishing spots. It's very easy to access & just a five minute drive from the house.

A swing on the back porch was a popular spot in the evenings. The kids enjoyed catching & releasing all kinds of critters found on the property- including fireflies, lizards, caterpillars, butterflies, and salamanders. Playing in the water outside was also a great way to beat the heat.

The fully stocked kitchen made for a great spot to share and cook meals during our stay. On the holiday, we especially enjoyed the use of the BBQ grill outside, & there were plenty of chairs & a good sized patio table for outdoor meals.

The house has all of the comforts of home including a spacious bathroom, laundry facilities, modern appliances, central heat/air, a TV/DVD/VCR combo, & ipod/radio/speaker in the kitchen.

Located in the nearby town of Clark, there are various Amish farms you can visit. Get your fill of farm fresh veggies, homemade soaps, quilts,wooden toys, furniture, pies, fresh milk & butter, eggs, leather & tack items, & lots of baked goodies. We even found a clock maker who also made hand-woven baskets.

On the downside, there is no internet availability, no cable/satellite TV, and patchy cell phone signal, but we were perfectly happy to leave those technologies behind for a little much-needed R & R.

The Brick, a tasty local diner, can be found in Moberly. We also ate a delish dinner at the Wabash Saloon on our first night. Definitely avoid Santa Fe restaurant in Moberly, we had quite a belly-ache after eating there and it was terrible food.

From waking to the sounds of the whippoorwills in the mornings while sipping tea and coffee, to falling asleep, windows open, to the sounds of the many forest critters, this house was an amazing place to land after all of our adventures in MO. We'll be back again for sure!

A piece of Paradise in Central Missouri!

  • 5 of 5
I went to college in this area and am familiar with the beauty of central Missouri - and this property is a great example! The home was stocked with every possible amenity and we were very comfortable. The owners were great and kept open a good line of communication. The property is in a very private setting with beautiful views of woods and fields. We were a little concerned about accessing the property due to a snow storm a couple of days before our visit, but the drive back to the house was plowed and all the patios and walks shoveled. It was a wonderful romantic winter get-away and I'm sure we will be back soon for a visit! If you enjoy winter walks, curling up with a good book, and cooking for fun - this is the place for you!
