About Donna Long

I started out at 15 being a hostess at a restaurant, for college I attended a travel academy, soon after had 2 beautiful bright children, ran a mechanical contracting company with my husband for 24 years, married 26 years to be widowed at a early age, and now once again a hostess to my own properties that I share with Wonderful Vacationers from all over the world:-)

Donna Long purchased this estate in 1995

Why Donna Long chose Missouri

This property is the home where my husband and I raised our children, when they grew up and moved out, I saw that we were not here as much and it's soooo beautiful to leave unattended, so I asked my husband if he would mind if we shared it with others. He agreed and the first year the response was soooo good that after I lost my husband, it's what kept me going:-) Everyone that stays here loves it, and many return year after year!!!

What makes this estate unique

As soon as your drive down the driveway between the manicured fields to the woods by the lake and then approach the home, you feel a sense of calmness. When you enter the foyer into the great room you then receive the WOW factor and the view is absolutely fabulous! Different words everyday can describe the view and the feeling, well, it's sometimes indescribable!! I look forward to providing this accommodation that you will long remember:-)

Guestbook comments from the manager

Words can not begin to express the wonderful time my family had being together in your amazing home! Everything was perfect and the surroundings, breath taking! I don't believe I could have found anything more enjoyable and relaxing. We take with us so many great memories and pictures. Everyone is already hoping we do this again next year and make it a family tradition! Thanks for everything!

Great Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in MO. The house and property were better in person then in the pictures, if you can believe that ;-) Our whole family (from 5 mos. to 77 years old) enjoyed every moment. There was always something to do: swim, fish, boat, fly drones, fireworks, and smores. The only time some of us left was to go to the grocery store or to get worms(which is close by). The house was very spacious and perfect for several families. We were really surprised at how sound proof it was from room to room. Donna was available and very helpful. Looking forward to next year.

Another Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As always, Another Great Time. My family fly's in once a year each summer. We used to go to Branson or the Lake of the Ozarks. This is our 3rd year staying here. The amenities keep the entire family busy, rain or shine. The paddle boats and kayaks are a hit as always. The property is very well kept and we cant wait to come next year. We had a few special requests and Donna made it all happen including the good weather we requested.

My first stay at Ms D. Longs private home was April 2015 and came back often, last time was May 2016. She is the host of host, she can read your mind as what your needs may be. I prefer the winter months. Waking up and looking out over the lake and watching the mist rise is breath taking. The evenings in front of the massive fireplace is so romantic, I recommend Ms Longs home for any occasion. I fell in love with her home and feel in love there as well..

Wonderful vacation for our enttire family!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Donna for sharing your Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home with us for our week's vacation. Nine of us enjoyed fishing, swimming, grilling, hiking, setting off fireworks, playing piano, and bonding as a family. Even with a couple days of rain, there was always something to do. The only times we left were for a Cardinal Baseball game, and shopping. Thanks again; you are an awesome hostess! We hope to return!
