Overview

About the property

2500 square feet with spacious living room and family room.

This is a large home located on Historic Route 66 in west Waynesville just a short distance to the west gate of Ft. Leonard Wood down a beautiful scenic drive. It is a spacious home with lots of room to relax. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 baths on the main floor and 1 bedroom upstairs. It has a nice sitting area in front of the gas fireplace. The covered front porch or the patio out back are relaxing places to sit and enjoy the outdoors. It is a nice level lawn for fun and games. There is a gas grill and lawn furniture. The kitchen is fully furnished if you would like to make the favorite family meals.

We are located in the heart of the Ozarks with so much to see and do. The trout fishing is great at the Roubidoux river in downtown Waynesville. There is a beautiful park and playground for the kids along with a splash park. St. Robert has a large city pool. Canoe, kayak and rafting float trips are a fun way to spend a day on the river locally. Devil's Elbow is a must see scenic drive on Route 66. Downtown Waynesville offers restaurants, pubs, wine cellar, ice cream and candy shops. Also, the Old Stage Coach Museum is a great place to visit.

There are four golf courses close to the home. Lake of the Ozarks is just 50 miles away. You can enjoy outlet mall shopping and fun on the lake.

Bass Pro Shop of Springfield is only an hours drive.

About Brenda Lewis

My family moved to Waynesville when I was a small child and I graduated here. I grew up as a high school principals daughter so I knew many people in the school system which was a large part of our small town. After graduation I relocated to the Lake of the Ozarks where I owned and operated a retail nursery, greenhouse, florist and landscaping business. I then moved to Columbia, Missouri for a few years where I got my start in real estate as a leasing agent at a large property management company. In 2001 I returned home to Waynesville and purchased a fitness center where I enjoyed helping people to become healthy. In the meantime, I purchased the rental property and now just own and manage rentals full time. I have years of experience in the business.

Brenda Lewis purchased this house in 2003

Why Brenda Lewis chose Missouri

I purchased this property in 2003 and has been a long term rental but decided to furnish it in May, 2015 and make it a family vacation home mainly due to families needing a place that they can be together when coming to Ft. Leonard Wood for graduations. Also, people who travel across the states on Historic Route 66 enjoy staying in places along the route.

What makes this house unique

This property is conveniently located to town but has the laid back country feel. It's so relaxing to sit on the front porch and watch the wildlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Eight members of our men's softball team stayed here for the weekend while playing in a tournament in nearby Lebanon, Missouri. The accommodations were comfortable and roomy. Brenda was very helpful and made us feel at home. We would definitely stay again the next time we're playing in the area.

Very nice home.

  • 5 of 5

Brenda was a very gracious host and her home was very nice. It allowed for a nice visit with a grandson stationed at Fort Leonard Wood. Being a history fan, the home being on the original Route 66 was exciting.

Very Enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

This fit our needs perfectly and we could not have asked for a better host. Hands down Brenda was one of the best hosts we have ever encountered. We rented the house so that our family would have a place to come gather after my nephew's graduation at Ft. Leonard Wood. The kitchen is well equipped and there is plenty of room. We were able to prepare my nephew a great home cooked meal and enjoy the afternoon together. I will say that I was a little hesitant when booking because the house looked older but the reviews were so good that I took a chance. The house is dated but very clean and it takes just a second to feel right at home. Brenda has taken the time to put together a book of things to visit in the area along with menus from local restaurants. Our favorite place to eat was Hoppers. Getting to the base was very easy and the best part was the convenience to the west gate of the base. We did not get stuck in the traffic jam that some of the family did at the main gate. Thanks again Brenda for everything! We would book this property again!

Everyone enjoyed the house.

  • 5 of 5

It was only for a few days but it was a very nice stay. Comfy house, had everything we needed. Would definitely use this same house if we have to go to another basic training graduation.
