Columbia House Rental Photos and Description

Charming 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 2-car garage, sleeps up to 10

Your home away from home!

Why stay in a cramped hotel room, or have to coordinate multiple hotel rooms for your stay when you can stay in a spacious home, with a fully equipped kitchen, 3-bedrooms and 2-baths? When you want or need a place in a family-friendly neighborhood, Tiger Tail Cottage is a good bet!

This classic cottage awaits you in the highly desirable Highlands area of Columbia, MO. As you step through the entry, this home welcomes you - the living area boasts hardwood floors, comfortable furnishings and provides a comfortable stay throughout! The house has a two-car garage, along with driveway and on-street parking available.

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. Upstairs you'll find the second bedroom with high ceilings and a queen bed. The third bedroom provides a full/full trundle bed, along with a twin bed – perfect for the kids, or when you have a larger group staying! There is also a roll-away available for use if needed.

A sliding glass door leads from the kitchen to the fenced in backyard, complete with patio seating with a loveseat and two chairs to relax and unwind, and a gas grill to BBQ outside!

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!

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

After a family reunion in another of Regina's properties, my family decided to stay to visit our daughter at MU and chose this home. We absolutely loved this house - it's so cute and was perfect for our family of five. The beds were very comfortable and the lay-out of the house we great for us as our kids had upstairs and we had the master bedroom on the main floor. The washer and dryer were very much appreciated (they look new) as we didn't have to pack as much since we could do laundry here. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals and the house is located in a great neighborhood that is nice to walk around. We'll absolutely return to this house to stay again in the future!

Perfect for our trip!

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out great for us! We had 6 adults and 2 children in town for a sports event at Mizzou Arena. The house was conveniently located to campus and restaurants, etc. We even had a few more people drop by and eat lunch with us one day and there was plenty of room. The kids loved that there was a basketball hoop also! The neighborhood was nice and the house was stocked with everything we needed.

We came into town and stayed a week here and it was absolutely perfect! The house is obviously loved and well taken care of; it has a warm and inviting look and feel throughout and is very comfortable. It really did feel like our home away from home. The kitchen had everything we needed for the week (except our groceries) to cook and enjoy our meals. The bedrooms were very comfortable, with two upstairs and one (the master) on the main level. One of the bedrooms was set up nicely for our kids to call their own and Regina left some toys and games that were age appropriate for them to play with while we were there (a nice touch!). The other bedroom became my teens bedroom, which he loved.

We liked that the backyard was fenced in so the kids could play and we didn't need to worry about them wandering off in a new neighborhood. There were kids in the neighborhood that became fast friends with our children too. Staying here was easy too since it is located fairly central to everywhere we wanted to go in Columbia, while still in a nice quiet neighborhood.

Our favorite part of the house was the backyard patio, it was quiet and peaceful, and we enjoyed sitting out there while the kids played. We also appreciated having a large television with a good selection of stations for the kids to watch.

Perfect for my stay!

  • 5 of 5

I travel frequently to Columbia and stayed here in April 2015. I really liked this house a lot. It was perfect for my solo stay as it has the master bedroom on the main floor and the other bedrooms upstairs. Everything I needed was on the main level! I liked having the washer and dryer as I needed to do laundry, and the kitchen had everything and more that I needed. Very comfortable bed and furniture. I really liked having a television in the bedroom too. Definitely recommend staying here!
