Columbia House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 2.5 Bath; sleeps up to 18

Your home away from home!

Why stay in a cramped hotel rooms, or have to coordinate multiple hotel rooms for your stay when you can stay in a spacious 4,000 square-foot home, with a fully equipped kitchen, 4-bedrooms and 2.5-baths?

When you want or need space, this is your ideal place to stay in Columbia! An excellent option for larger families and groups traveling together, yet a favorite in Columbia for many with just a few staying!

Very light and airy, with soaring cathedral ceilings and spacious, open floor plan - with walls of windows and sky lights. The main level boasts a large kitchen and dining room combo, with seating for 8 at the dining room table and more at the island in the kitchen. The entry foyer has a pass through fireplace with the living room surrounded by windows overlooking the backyard lake. In the entry foyer you'll also find a wet bar and half bath!

The living room enjoys a full wall of windows overlooking the upper deck and backyard with a pond. Glass doors lead from the main level of the home to the upper deck outside where you'll find a table and chairs, additional seating and a charcoal grill for your cooking enjoyment to BBQ outside.

As you ascend the stairs to the loft, you'll overlook the living room and the view outside to the backyard. The loft is a bedroom loft, sleeping up up to 2 in the queen bed.

Descend the stairs to the lower level and there is a second pass-through fireplace and over-sized sitting area with a flat screen television. In the sleeping nook, set off from the main room, is a queen bed that overlooks the backyard.

Two bedrooms are also on the lower level and sleep up to 6 more guests – one bedroom has a queen bed, the second with two queen beds. A pack-and-play is located in the two-queen bedroom. Access to an additional rollaway bed if needed.

On the lower level is also a full bath with a combination shower-tub and a separate laundry room with Bosch front-loading washer and dryer. The lower level opens out to a patio that runs the length of the house and has comfortable seating to enjoy the view of the backyard and pond.

The house sits on 11 acres, complete with apple, pear, peach and cherry trees, grapes and berries. Hike the private woods, play games on the lawn or watch wildlife from the deck.

The main level is partially handicap accessible (3 shallow stairs that can utilize your portable ramp) with wide doors, grab bars at the toilet in the master and in the master roll-in shower. There is also a grab bar and railing located at the front door for our limited mobility guests. The home features a "master on the main" which allows enjoyment of the main level without needing to go upstairs or downstairs during your stay.

Our location is ideal for events downtown, MU Football weekends, weddings and visiting family and friends. Make it your home away from home as you transition to the area with our discounted executive rental rates to get you settled in as you search for your new home (28 or more nights).

We also welcome hunters with Eagle Bluffs just 2-miles down the road (no dressing game in the house). The house is 8 minutes to downtown, 7.5 minutes to the Faurot Field (home of the Mizzou Tigers) and the MU Campus, and the Katy Trail just 2-miles away!

Please note, the garage is not available for those renting the house. Parking in driveway for up to 6 cars, additional parking for events (with permission only) on designated lawn areas, event fees apply.

About Regina Wilshire

I've lived in Columbia since 2006 and absolutely love this town - the midwest charm of the people who live here, the cultural apects and its proximity to both St. Louis and Kansas City can't be beat!

Regina Wilshire purchased this house in 2009

Why Regina Wilshire chose Missouri

This house is perfectly located to enjoy Columbia, Eagle Bluffs and the surrounding area. It's a great property for groups traveling together, larger families and those seeking quiet country settings close to town, but not in town.

What makes this house unique

The light, airy feel of the home is unbeatable - the cathedral ceilings in the living room, with the wall of windows overlooking the back pond and woods is relaxing; the home's size is large enough for large groups, yet not too large even for just a few staying due to its layout.

Great spot for Mizzou family weekend

  • 5 of 5

The home was a great spot for 4 families to make home base for family weekend. The beds are comfy, plenty of towels, kitchen is decently stocked and the backyard is gorgeous.

The owner supplied great little travel toiletries.

Brim extra garbage bags and kitchen towels.

This was 7-8 miles from the stadium but, it was not a problem for us.

Would definitely stay again.

HS STATE WRESTLING, 5 KIDS 3 ADULTS

  • 5 of 5

PERFECT SPOT FOR OUR GROUP. HAS GREAT ACCESS TO MIZZOU ARENA, MALL, RESTAURANTS AND ANYTHING ELSE YOU MIGHT NEED. IN OUR GROUP WE HAVE TO SUPERVISE HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES AND THE HOUSE HAS MADE THAT MUCH EASIER TO DO AS OPPOSED TO SEPARATE HOTEL ROOMS. THE ATHLETES STAY DOWNSTAIRS AND HAVE ACCESS TO THEIR OWN BATHROOM/SHOWER, LIVING ROOM AND PRIVATE BEDROOMS. THE ADULTS STAY IN THE 2ND LEVEL ROOM AND LOFT. THE UPSTAIRS LIVING ROOM IS A GREAT AREA FOR ALL TO HANG OUT. THE KITCHEN ALLOWS US TO COOK MEALS FOR THE KIDS WHICH IS EASIER THEN GETTING IN AT RESTAURANTS DURING A BUSY TIME FOR COLUMBIA. WASHER AND DRYER ALLOWS US TO WASH OUR SINGLETS AND CLOTHING FOR THE TEAM. PLENTY OF LINENS FOR ALL. THIS YEAR WITH NICE WEATHER WE WERE ABLE TO ENJOY THE YARD SPACE AND WAS EVEN ABLE TO CATCH A FEW FISH. IT IS A PLEASURE TO STAY HERE AND IT MAKES THE STAY FOR THE KIDS "SPECIAL". REGINA IS EASY TO WORK WITH AND OVERALL WE COULDN'T ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE. I WILL AND HAVE RECOMMENDED OTHER SCHOOLS TO LOOK AT VRBO FOR THE STAY AT STATE WRESTLING.

Perfect large home. Comfy beds, new furniture. Beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

This home is HUGE. The full glass windows on both floors running the length of the home provided beautiful views and made this home such a gift to stay at.

This home was a treat as it is obvious the owners gave extra thought in seeking to achieve comfort for their guests. We all slept beautifully due to the 4 Queen beds, the King bed and the bunk beds had very nice mattresses and linens. I believe the King bed is a brand new Tempurpedic mattress. The master bath was upscale all the way. Both living rooms had very nice new living room furniture.

We appreciated the door between the upstairs and the lower level. The laundry room is quite nice. Kitchen is well stocked. This home is wonderful! We all were saying we would love to stay during the summer months or fall months and make use of the outdoors. The location of the home is ideal. Close to everything yet just outside the busyness where one can truly relax.

Regina was wonderful to work with. We greatly appreciated the opportunity to have stayed in this ideal home.

Impressive!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in many of Regina's properties and this is, without a doubt, one of the most impressive I've stayed in (hers and other owners)! Very spacious and open, it's huge. It had everything I needed and I was very pleased with my stay here. The grounds are a mix of both lawn and woods (more woods than lawn) and the pond out back offers a nice view from both upstairs and downstairs, as well as when sitting out on the deck. I travel often to Columbia and would stay here all the time, except most times I do not need this much space! I really loved this house, recommend to anyone looking for an impressive house to stay while here!
