Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, relaxing two week stay was enjoyed by our family at the river home. All the beds were very comfortable and updated. The great room was nicely furnished with comfortable, modern couch/recliners topped off with a new flat screen TV. The kitchen area is very large, updated with granite tops with plenty of eating area. The adjacent pantry room is huge and accommodates a very nice, new washer and dryer. The bathrooms have been upgraded including granite counters, all with shower and/or tub with shower. A beautiful wood deck runs off the great room and master bedroom upstairs. Downstairs there are two queen beds, a bathroom and enough area to hold a party. The available folding tables and chairs make this area very conducive to having a nice get together, very nicely done. As a result, our family reunion with 30 plus people was a great success.

What we really enjoyed was the peace and quiet of the river home. We slept like babies. It is located about 1 mile off State Hwy. 89, away from any traffic noise.

While sitting on the outside deck we saw cottontails, blue birds, woodpeckers, and our favorite, the Red Bird (Cardinal). The lightning bugs fluttering between the trees were a special treat at night while on the deck. In the front yard area we saw several deer as well. One evening we saw an owl in flight. A short walk down the hill is a nicely done entry into the Gasconade River, a nice place for a cool dip on a hot day. There are inner tubes, life jackets, camp chairs, BBQ's, coolers, canoes, and much more available. The river home is a great place for a family vacation, family reunion, a friendly get together with friends, or a place to chill out and relax. The river home made us feel like we had a home away from home. Very comfortable.

Steve and Susie went out of their way to make sure we had a great vacation and family reunion. Thank you Steve and Susie. You are great.

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.

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
