This classic cottage awaits you in the highly desirable Highlands area of Columbia, MO.

The living room and dining room combination is warm and inviting. Sit back and enjoy the wood-burning fireplace, watch television on the 55” flat screen television, or play games together! The dining area has seating for six with additional chairs if needed.

The eat-in kitchen is fully equipped with modern stainless steel appliances, and all the gadgets to make cooking here a breeze. Stocked items include a coffee maker, toaster, crock-pot, stick blender, baking dishes and more!

Each of the three bedrooms is carpeted and furnished to include premium bedding and quality linens. The master bedroom is on the main level with an ensuite, and the two additional bedrooms are located upstairs with a full bath.

The master bedroom has a queen bed, 32” flat screen television, and an ensuite bathroom! In addition the ensuite has a hall entry for the main level of the home, to a half-bath, that allows privacy from the master bath.

This was the second time we have stayed in this home. Many upgrades have been done in the past year. Backyard is now very inviting. Great location, and Regina was great to work with.

Great place for the holidays

  • 5 of 5

For 19 years we have travelled to Columbia for the holidays. Often staying at the in-laws with a pull out couch or at a hotel. This year we decided to have our own home away from home. We even brought a Christmas tree and lights. It was great. The place is on a quiet street. The rooms very comfortable, nice kitchen and the living room was very inviting. Great communication with the owner. Not problems. Plan to rent again when we travel next year.

Cute Place

  • 4 of 5

Cute property with comfortable furniture including the beds and linens. Quiet neighborhood and satisfied our needs. Couldn't figure out how to use Netflix, but that's probably operator error!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a soccer tournament. The girls enjoyed playing soccer in the backyard and basketball in the front. They also liked being able to have their own space in a room that could sleep up to five! It was perfect for the four soccer players! I liked having a room on the main floor away from the noisy girls! We also enjoyed being able to watch Netflix on the main TV. We felt right at home!
