We a great time in this bungalow. We had visiting family and it was the perfect place to stay. Being surrounded by water was so fun and beautiful. It's in a very nice, quiet, safe area. The owners were great to work with and we would love to visit there again!

Well maintained, spacious, fun setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend here. Having the extra space in the finished basement was important. The pond is pretty to look at, the kitchen is well-equipped, and the beds are comfy. I'd have liked wi-fi but it was not a deal-breaker. The owner was very helpful and friendly.

Quiet & Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Although we live nearby, we had an overflow of holiday visitors heading into town year - Heidi's property was a great option for accommodating many of our guests in a location more personal and interesting than a hotel. Although we mostly only used it for sleeping quarters for 3 nights, the location easily would meet the normal needs of a travelling family (stocked kitchens, etc). Heidi was great to work with and the location was convenient.

Definitely looking forward to a repeat rental sometime during the warmer months so that we can take better advantage of the awesome deck! Thanks Heidi.

Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here. We brought our elderly parents here and hosted our kids for Christmas. This worked out perfect, with a kitchen that accommodated cooking and eating for up to 11 people..... and Amy even had a Christmas tree up and waiting for us! We loved watching the ducks and geese on the lake and enjoyed visits from the neighbor's big black cat! For our parent that used a walker, the upstairs bathroom was a little tricky, but we made it work. I highly recommend renting the entire house, as it gives you lots of options for seating and eating together. Thank you Amy, I hope we can come back when it is warm so we can really enjoy the lake. One last thought...when using google maps, it lists Bethel Meadows road as Bethel School Road. (this caused us a bit of trouble when we arrived - no fault of owner).

Owner's Response: Thank you.. I am so glad the house worked. I know that bath upstairs is a little narrow (unfortunately it would take a lot to change it). We would love to have you back in the warmer, I enjoy it so much more when it is warm and you can sit by the lake.

Excellent value for accommodations so near to St. Louis!

  • 4 of 5

The Bungalow was a great location for visiting St. Louis while allowing our kids to run around, fish, and pet the local free range chickens when not sightseeing. Quaint spot on a pond, with three bedrooms and two tv rooms. (Three if you include the sun porch, although we never figured out how to connect that one.) Interior isn't luxurious but it is clean and well-maintained. Kitchen was even up to the task of prepping thanksgiving dinner for eleven! (If you're a large group, bring extra dishes and utensils, but otherwise you're set.) No wifi but the adults didn't mind for a few days.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. I have no problem adding dishes if more are needed. We added more after this comment. Unfortunately the box for the TV in the front room went bad and we had to pull it out. When staying with us please feel free to call, text or email me with your needs and I will do my best to make it happen.

Stayed here rather than St Louis for a wedding in Forest Park

  • 5 of 5

I reserved this originally when I planned to drive and bring my dog along. Plans changed when I flew and didn't have the dog. In the end I was glad we stayed here rather than the hotel in downtown STL. Other family members who visited us liked the place and were envious. They preferred it to the downtown hotel where they were staying.

There were 6 of us so we also used the downstairs. Nice that there was some privacy. We didn't do much cooking except for breakfast. Did some shopping before we got there and found some of the items we bought were already there. There were eggs in an outdated carton and later wondered if they were fresh eggs from the visiting chickens. Plenty of room at table and bar for all of us to get together. House was clean and had all the supplies we needed.

Loved the area and the morning visits from the chickens, guinea hens and 2 friendly cats. Nice view across the small lake seeing cows, horses and a large pig. Rural area but close enough to town and shopping.

I reserved this for myself, children and grown grandchildren. Everyone was pleased and thought I had done well choosing it. If in the area I would certainly stay here again.
