Photos and Description of this St Louis holiday estate

5 Private Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Fully Furnished, Sleeps 14 in beds

Looking for a luxurious, fully furnished, beautifully decorated home away from home to host your family reunion? Seeking a holiday party while keeping everyone under the same roof? Then look no further! The Estate at Wildflower is available for as few as 2 nights, or by the week, depending on your needs. Perfect for high level executives with families needing a corporate stay. Located just 30 minutes from downtown where you can take advantage of a conference at the Convention Center, a Card's game at Busch Stadium, a night out at Lumiere Casino or the many other events downtown St. Louis has to offer. The Estate at Wildflower also has many fun activities for the family right outside it's back door! Starting with Paradise Valley Golf Course an 18-hole course open to the public within walking distance. Kraus Farm Equestrian Center or Valley Mount Ranch are 5 minutes away and offer horseback riding for the entire family. Six Flags is a short 10 minute drive on I-44 and offers an amusement and water park. If all this activity sounds like too much, then just spend your time at 'The Estate'! The park like grounds offer a very private, wooded, serene setting yet you are still 5 minutes away from the nearest Starbucks!

The Estate at Wildflower is a custom built, 5000 sq. ft. home built on a 7+/- acre, totally secluded lot. Enjoy the parklike setting and watch the deer and turkey that stroll through the yard, or spend the evening in the 7-person Caldera Hot Tub/ Spa. 'The Estate' is fully equipped and nicely appointed to meet you and your guest's needs. The gourmet kitchen boasts Brazilian granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, Jenn-Air cook top, and double oven. We have provided a wide array of dishes, pots, pans, utensils etc. to meet your entertainment and food prep needs. Two dining tables, one seats 8, the other 4, for seating your guests. There's a huge deck off the back of the house, just off the kitchen, overlooking the golf course for your summer BBQ's on the gas grill. 'The Estate' has 5 bedrooms, 4 king-size beds, and 1 queen-size bed. There's also a queen-size sofa sleeper and a king trendle bed. We can sleep 14 in beds with an occupancy limit of 20. For additional sleeping needs there are 3 other non-sleeper sofas throughout the house and ample room to place an air mattress or two for the kids, if needed. The home has 4 bath rooms including the master en suite with an oversized tub, his/her sinks, and 2-person shower. There are 2 decorative fireplaces, and 1 wood burning fireplace. Three large screen TV's and 1 smaller flat screen TV with DirecTV will satisfy your TV viewing needs. A game table with roulette wheel, chess set, and plenty of decks of cards will meet your gaming needs. Relax and enjoy reading a book from our library in front of a roaring fire or in the screened-in porch listening to the birds.

We have spared no expense furnishing your home away from home. Many of the art pieces and sculptures are original pieces of art. We have provided a weight bench, weight set, and gym-quality treadmill to meet your exercise needs. If you plan on working from 'The Estate' or just need the internet to find a nearby restaurant or grocery store, you will appreciate the free broadband (60 MB Charter pipeline) wireless internet that can be enjoyed from most any nook and cranny in or outside the home. Stay once, and you will want to stay again, as many of our guests have. We look forward to entertaining you!

About Jeffrey Marquie

I am a licensed real estate broker in St. Louis, MO. When I briefly relocated out of state I couldn't bear to part with my dream home and converted it to a luxury vacation rental.

Jeffrey Marquie purchased this estate in 2006

Why Jeffrey Marquie chose Missouri

This is a serene location. I love to stay here when I need to get away from the city but need to stay close. Every piece of artwork and furniture were carefully hand selected.

What makes this estate unique

Luxury can be affordable. Imagine saving the cost of 7 hotel rooms and everyone being able to stay under the same roof and socialize. The ability to prepare your own meals in a gourmet kitchen, dine together, relax together in a beautiful setting in harmony with nature.

Perfect for a large family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had 19 people for Thanksgiving dinner. Large, convenient kitchen is well-stocked with a variety of mixing bowls, pots/pans, casserole dishes, etc., including a large roaster (big enough for one of our 17.5 pound turkeys) and a couple of large slow cookers. There was plenty of dishes/glassware and flatware as well. The only knock I would make would be that there really is sleeping for 17 at most: 5 queen/king beds, 3 singles and two pull-out couches. Additional sleeping is on couches - there's enough of those to accommodate another 3 or so people, but not particularly comfortably. There was plenty of linens, though - We bought some air mattresses at Walmart and had no other issues. The house is big enough to accommodate multiple conversation groups / games / other activities without feeling crowded. All in all, a really great time. The home is very well maintained, and I was pleasantly surprised at how nicely it is decorated.

This is a pretty isolated location, very quiet and pretty. We didn't attempt to go anywhere, but it would be a bit of a drive to get into downtown St. Louis.

Pictures don't do this property justice!

  • 5 of 5

I can't speak highly enough of this property. I booked Wildflower Valley for a wedding party to stay at for 3 nights. Pictures don't do this property justice. When we walked through the front door we were overwhelmed by the space, the finishings, and the view. Not to mention the relaxing drive through tree covered winding roads. Jeff and Shane were very helpful, and answered within minutes of texting them with questions. Every bed was comfortable and the space of the house was better than expected. The kitchen was a great space to cook in and enjoy friends. The screened in porch was definitely the hang out spot. I would stay there again if I ever needed a place in Missouri.

Beautiful Quiet Space

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for sharing your beautiful home. It was a relaxing space for our whole family (19 total with spouses and kids) to meet together. The closets were big enough that the cousins 'camped' in them some nights. :)
