Welcome to our lovely guest house! This beautiful living space was created within a larger warehouse building as a modern, comfortable and private oasis for those seeking relaxation, an undisturbed working environment, and communication with nature. We are located in the community of Millersburg, just east of downtown Columbia where an easy drive will have you in Columbia in 15 minutes or Fulton in 20 minutes. The apartment overlooks 26 acres of private land, and features a large master bedroom suite with mission-style furniture, queen-sized bed, and hardwood floors. Relax in the deep soaker tub with beautiful views of the countryside from the large picture window. The master bath also features a separate glass shower and dual sinks. The kitchen is fully furnished, contains all new stainless steel appliances, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster. The second bedroom contains a queen-sized bed and desk, and the powder room features a copper-bowl raised sink. The main living and dining area is bright and airy with a large sliding glass door leading to the sun deck. If you prefer to relax at home, there is an entertainment center with 36 inch flat screen TV, DVD, satellite television, portable radio with CD and I-pod/ I-phone input options, and high-speed wireless Internet access.
Columbia holds many activities for visitors. Home to 3 centers for higher learning, there are educational, sporting, art, music, and theater events virtually year-round. The University of Missouri Concert Series brings world-renowned performers and Broadway shows to the area on a regular basis. Columbia also hosts 2 film festivals yearly, as well as the autumn Roots, Blues, and Barbeque festival. There are great locally owned restaurants, brew pubs, coffee houses, art galleries, and apparel shops downtown. There are many live music venues and nightclubs for entertainment for all tastes. For kids, there are playgrounds at many downtown parks, Flat Branch Park offers a “spray ground” for warm weather fun, and Stephens Lake Park features a lake swimming area for families. Columbia also hosts the Show-Me State Games each summer, as well as other statewide sporting events. For those wishing to spend time outdoors, Little Dixie Lake, managed by the Missouri Conservation Department, is 2 miles away, with fishing and a 6 mile hiking trail. Rock Bridge State Park is just south of Columbia with numerous hiking trails, and trail access at the Mark Twain National Forest is within 10-15 minutes. Columbia is also the origin of the Rails-to Trails MKT Trail, a 10-mile biking and hiking trail that connects to the 225 mile Katy Trail, the longest Rails-to Trails park in the United States.
We are happy to entertain any questions about the location or furnishings of our apartment, or activities in the surrounding area.
NOTE: We are very sorry, but due to negative experience with renters who have broken no-smoking rules and smoked in the apartment, we have been forced to make this entire property - indoors and out - nonsmoking.
