Beautiful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely place to get the family together and visit. Clean house with well groomed lawn and a really nice dock. Steve gave us a walk thru when we arrived and then we were on our on to fish, boat, grill, and visit. We sat on the dock by the river in the shade and had a great time. We would go back in a heartbeat!

Paradise Bluff River Home on the Spring-Fed Gasconade River

  • 5 of 5

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.

Paradise Bluff on the river.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Well equipted comfortable river retreat!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Troop Campout

  • 5 of 5

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.

Labor Day Weekend, 2011

  • 5 of 5

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.

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
