5 STAR RATED * LAKEFRONT 5BR/6BA HOME - LAKE SHERWOOD/W. ST. LOUIS

Innsbrook House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 6 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

'SERENITY', the name of this spectacular LAKEFRONT home, has all the amenities for a memorable vacation regardless of what season you choose to come.

This 4,500+ sq ft home has 120 ft of shoreline complete with private dock on the Main Lake at Lake Sherwood in one of the best coves for swimming, fishing and enjoying the lake. With more than 3,000 sq feet of decks, patios and dock you can take full advantage of enjoying the outdoors.

Want to explore the lake? We have a paddle boat, kayak and canoe for you to use. Spend the day on the water floating on one of the many water toys that are provided. The lake has great fishing too right off our dock. Enjoy the screened in porch or hang out on the rocking chair deck or chill out in one of the hammocks hanging in the trees. Then end your day relaxing in the 8 person hot tub under the starlit sky.

Cathedral ceilings offer breathtaking views of the water & tree filled property as does the sunroom and many decks located around the house and lake side so no matter what time of year 'SERENITY' is a great escape. Cozy around the 2 story stone fireplace or curl up with a good book in the loft area. You will love the privacy and you will feel lost in the tranquility.

The whimsical lower entertainment level has fun for everyone. Enjoy the custom made Texas Hold em Poker Table, Foosball, Pool Table and we have numerous fun games, DVDs, books and CDs for our guests use. Then to top it off you will find the home theatre featuring a 110 inch Projection TV, awesome surround sound, Direct TV with Tivo, Blu-Ray DVD Player and we have a Wii. We even have comfy theatre seating. Oops! Forgot to mention the bar area with microwave for that needed movie popcorn.

There is a large gourmet kitchen that is perfect for entertaining. The kitchen has a large granite topped center island w/extra prep sink, double ovens, microwave, all cooking & serving utensils you need for whipping up spectacular meals. We even have a supply of many spices, condiments, paper products for your convenience. Bring your favorite recipes, food and channel your inner Chef!

This home has 5 bedrooms (one with 2 sets of bunk beds and a sofa sleeper that is the perfect kids room) and 4 full bathrooms and 2 half baths. The Master Bedroom Suite & Master Bath is located on the main floor and the other 4 bedrooms w/Jack and Jill bathrooms are on the upstairs guest level. We even have a 2nd floor guest laundry for drying out those suits. No need to bring linens or beach towels either as we provide it all.

We have pictures to give you a sampling of what 'SERENITY' has to offer but there is so much more to see and do. See complete house pictures at www.facebook.com/serenitylakehouse

This is truly a perfect place to leave it all behind and come enjoy the lake! Whether gathering for a family reunion, friend get together or a couple escape, why go all the way to the Ozarks when you have 'SERENITY' just outside of St Louis and all the town has to offer! So, come & escape to the lake!

NOTE: We have a 2nd vacation home at Lake Sherwood being offered for vacation rentals. REFLECTIONS Lake House is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath 4,400 sq ft home right on the main lake too with amazing water front views from almost every room. Sleeps 10-14 guests. Check it out at www.reflectionslakehouse.com or VRBO #460587 if Serenity is booked.

WHAT’S NEW at SERENITY? We constantly hear rave reviews about how nice, new and clean our lake home looks. Well, that takes a lot of effort and we continuously strive to enhance your vacation experience. Many of these things didn’t “need” to be done but I love to shop and keep things changing. lol! We are always upgrading to keep SERENITY fresh.

Serenity was built for family and friends to gather for fun, relaxing and memories. Lake Sherwood is the best kept secret outside of St Louis that I have enjoyed since a young child. You will enjoy the feeling of being away from the world here with all it's beauty and wildlife. Pictured are L-R, Amy Fossett, Terrie Stiles & Kim Garner (owner). We are long time friends and have enjoyed the lake since Kim & Amy bought there first weekend house in 1997 at Lake Sherwood. Several years later we sold that weekend house and Kim Garner had this home custom built in 2003. The home was designed for entertaining friends and guests. We are now pleased to offer it for rental for others to enjoy. The minute you drive through the gates at Lake Sherwood you will experience the true 'Serenity' of the lake.

Amy Fossett purchased this house in 2003

With 'Serenity' only being 25 minutes from Chesterfield and less than an hour from downtown St Louis/Cardinal Baseball/Rams and most St. Louis Tourist Attractions makes this a perfect getaway without taking forever to arrive. There is so much to do around this area that one could spend several days without even taking advantage of all St Louis has to offer. The wineries, Katy's Trail (hiking and biking), shopping nearby and enjoying all Lake Sherwood has is a vacation in itself.

Floating on the water and BBQ in the summer and warming up in the hot tub in the winter are my favorite things to do here. If the weather is not so great, the basement is full of entertainment. Watching deer through the two story windows while sitting in front of the fireplace is also relaxing.

FAMILY MEMORIES

  • 5 of 5
The listings and photos were exactly as described. This vacation home met all our expectations and more. The owner was very helpful with all our questions. It was as if she had anticipated our every need before we arrived. We would definitely recommend this home to friends and relatives and we will use it again ourselves. No need for restaurants we purchased food and ate all our meals at home.That's how we felt at home.

AWESOME, JUST AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
We stayed April 19-22, 2014 at Serenity. We had a family reunion and had a great time. We came from all over the country for the reunion. This house had so much to do. It was beautilful, clean and fun. We have stayed at many vacation rentals thru the years, and this one was better stocked than any we stayed at. The kitchen had all kinds of spices, pans, cookware. There were many games, puzzles, movies. There was also much to do in the area being close to St. Louis. You will not be disappointed if you stay here.

PEACEFUL FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
This is was an awesome place for my family to reunite! It was a quiet gettaway with tons of space and lots to do! Some of our favorite aspects were the ease of using canoe/paddleboats with children, the breezy sunroom, and cool amenities such as hammocks, firepit, and the entire basement full of fun activities! The property manager/owners were also very easy to work with and answered all questions. The location of this property is also pretty nice, because it's far enough away from chaos yet still not terribly far from grocery stores etc. The only "negative" thing I would have to say, (and it wasn't a huge issue, honestly) would be that there wasn't much flat ground for small children to run around. However, there is a playground not far from the house that we walked to a couple of different times. I would definitely recommend SERENITY to just about anyone looking for a nice vacation!

Owner's Response: Amy-
Thank you for the kind words and we appreciate the feedback. We're glad you were able to find the playground as you are correct, most houses on the lake are on a hill with little flat areas. We try to have as much as possible inside the house and near the water to never be bored! It's a great place to find Serenity if that is what you are looking for as well. We enjoyed having your group and hope to see you in the future!
Thanks again,
Kim, Terrie and Amy

AN UNBELIEVABLE EXPERIENCE IN EVERY WAY IMAGINABLE!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house is unbelievably decorated. Every possible need thought of and provided for - spotless and feels like (even better than) home. There is enough space for multiple families to be comfortable. The game/theater room gives one many options on a rainy/cold day. The kitchen has every amenity and can accommodate cooking for a crowd. We will be back!

BEAUTIFUL HOME...GREAT RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5
I took my family on a surprise trip to Serenity Lake House and we all fell in love. Perfect accommodations and instructions on how to use everything. Also a short drive to the city so our trip was a perfect mix of relaxation in the country and city fun.

We want to come back with my entire family so we can use the lake amenities.
