This is truly a paradise for the most private of parties. Our home cannot even be found on MapQuest. They have the location wrong and so far have not fixed it! Lock the gate behind you and no one will enter unless you want them too! This home cannot be seen by the road and nobody knows you are here, but me! This is my private home and now that I am an empty nester I thought I would like to share it with others, so you can experience the beauty of nature and the unique architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright's teachings. Once you arrive you will not want to leave! Every day is a new day here with something different to see. I promise you, you won't be disappointed, you may not even want to leave!

There are so many things to offer one that stays here. It's large enough for a family gathering and personal enough for a private getaway!

About Donna Long

This was our 4th home, we actually bought it to develop the property around the lake and once we moved here, in August 1995, we couldn't do it! With our children grown we thought why not allow others to enjoy this beauty, it's so peaceful and inspirational! The response was so great the first year, 2009, that I continued doing it after my husbands passing, October 2009. It warms my heart to know that so many people travel from all over the United States to meet family & friends here to create wonderful memories! I really enjoy meeting everyone and I hope to be doing this for many years to come!

Donna Long purchased this estate in 1995

Why Donna Long chose Sullivan

This was our personal home where we raised our two children for 15 years! It's a private paradise that is relaxing, rejuvenating, very peaceful, and inspirational! I'm sure you will find it the same! We are close to Six Flags, Wine Country, and about 40-50 minutes to downtown St. Louis.

What makes this estate unique

You will enjoy getting back to nature here. It is your own private resort to enjoy with your close personal friends and family! Swim in the pool or lake, kayak, pedal the paddle boats/LOL, enjoy the sounds of nature or the outdoor music, fish, hike, relax and listen to water trickling into the concrete pond, have a bonfire in your own private park by the lake and roast some marshmallows by the open fire while watching the moon dance across the lake - if your lucky it'll be a full moon - how romantic will that be? Best of all enjoy the architecture of this Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home that was designed by one of his apprentices, Ralph Fournier and the previous owner, built in 1970 and 2nd story added on by us in 1998.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Words can not begin to express the wonderful time my family had being together in your amazing home! Everything was perfect and the surroundings, breath taking! I don't believe I could have found anything more enjoyable and relaxing. We take with us so many great memories and pictures. Everyone is already hoping we do this again next year and make it a family tradition! Thanks for everything!

Another Fun Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd time coming here. Our family had a blast again. The new paddle boats were a hit. The kids caught a ton of fish and enjoyed throwing them back. We cooked all our meals this time outside, love the gas kitchen. Well be back again next year.

Fantastic Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
This house reminded me of being in the Wisconsin Dells. It was so vintage yet modern at the same time. The owner was very accessible and accommodating. It's an amazing party house. My guests were so impressed. We stayed during a snowy, icy weekend, so that posed a challenge with the long country lane, but it worked out. Secluded and special. Very romantic and elegant. Clean and beautiful. The Buck stove fireplace was perfect! Would LOVE to rent this house in the summertime. An unforgettable weekend.

Great Owner and Great House

  • 5 of 5
We loved working with Donna. She met us at the house and showed us around. What I love is you can tell she does her best to take great care of her properties, and her guests. She told us everything from where to buy the best groceries to how to start the fire.

The house is not a generic house for sure. It has unique character and lots of room to spread out. There is one HUGE king master bedroom upstairs with amazing views of the lake. The pictures do not do it justice. It also has 2 queen size bedrooms upstairs that share a 3/4 bath with a skylight in it. Downstairs there is another king size bed with a view over the lake and a little water feature that is very pretty, along with a queen size bedroom that share a bath.

The dining room is huge with plenty of room for 10 people to sit around the table. This is a party house for sure, since it was winter we were not able to fully enjoy the outside pool etc, but we did enjoy walking around the lake and all of the scenery. This is a place you could come and never have to leave, there is plenty to do right at the house. You will not be sorry you came. The kitchen is not huge, pretty much 1 or 2 people cooking at a time, but we loved the L shaped counter and bar stools, so you always had company when you were cooking and cleaning up.

One thing that was an issue is there is not shower downstairs, just the sunk in tub which does have a hand sprayer, but if you want a full stand up shower you will have to go upstairs, but it worked out just fine for us.

You are only about 20 minutes from Six Flags and about 45 minutes from the zoo...which we did not mind at all. Also the town of Union is only about 6 miles away, so you can easily run to Wal-Mart, or a local grocery store if you need anything.

We loved our stay and enjoyed every minute of it. I think anyone who stays here will say the same thing...it is a great place to get away to.
