About Tarah Riegel

My mother originally started a vacation rental business about 7 years ago. After assisting her part time the last few years, I finally decided that starting a vacation rental business of my own was finally in my cards as well! I now own & manage a little company called Bassora Properties just outside St. Louis, MO. My husband, Brian, and I love sharing our first vacation rental, Hidden Creek Getaway, with others. We love it so much that we are also diligently working to restore a 120 year old 3 story all brick home that is located in Washington's Historic Downtown District (listing #820866). It will be completed in the late Spring of 2016 and will sleep 10+ people. Brian's passion is his day job, working on his family's dairy farm and mine is crafting, sewing, and embroidering unique items. Together, we make a great team managing the property and are quick to respond to your needs since we live just a mile away with our three children, Sawyer, Sterling, & Scarlett!

Tarah Riegel purchased this house in 2000

Why Tarah Riegel chose Missouri

We absolutely LOVE the privacy that it offers! We are blessed to see the stars about every night, hear the sound of the trees swaying, and smell of fresh, clean just can't get any better than that!

What makes this house unique

There are NO HALLWAYS! The floor plan is so open, you won't find 1 hallway in the whole house...except the stairs going down to the basement!

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful home with enough beds for all of us on our girls weekend getaway. Bedrooms and bathrooms were well decorated. Enjoyed the open living areas where all of us could gather for a meal or a movie. Wish the deck area was a little more spacious and/or some shade available, but overall a nice, very private, property.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we expected and more. AMPLE space for fifteen of us including five under 10 and two teens. The pool lacked clarity when we arrived but the owners made a huge effort and we were swimming already on day two. Privacy, simplicity, and close proximate to St Louis made it a great place to stay and play for our family as we gathered from across the country.

The Perfect Home for Our Family Event

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property because it had a lot of beds, large community areas and the location was ideal for a series of weeklong events we had scheduled with out of town family and friends in Washington, MO. We thought the property would be great for both the people staying there as well as the many folks who would be visiting before and after a scheduled baptism, Thanksgiving dinner, rehearsal dinner and wedding. After staying here we realized this home exceeded even our high pre-stay expectations! Tarah, the owner, was very responsive and helpful in the months prior to our stay as we added nights to both ends of the week and provided tremendous detail in the 'Cottage Book' about local businesses, restaurants, etc. The house was very clean, well maintained, bright and the pictures (as good as they were) couldn't fully capture how wonderful a space the house really is. The kitchen was well stocked with staple items (paper towels, condiments, spices, plastic bags, pots, pans, roasters, etc.) that allowed us to prepare full meals throughout the week. The large kitchen island flowed easily into the dining area and great room and that design allowed for very large groups of family and friends to easily eat, visit and mingle without feeling cramped or squeezed. The bedrooms (and overall number of beds) were all as advertised with comfortable beds, large bathrooms and plenty of space for the many people staying there. The downstairs basement/great room was another large gathering space that allowed many visitors to easily dine and mix with one another. The HD projection TV was also a big hit as we were there over the Thanksgiving weekend so lots of folks wanted to watch football games and the HD picture projected against a screen the size of one wall was a huge favorite.

I would HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a lovely, large home to stay in when visiting the Missouri wine country or Washington, MO! Thanks, Tarah as your home allowed all our visiting family and friends to have a wonderful, relaxing, comfortable and highly enjoyable week!!
