About Debra Hart
I grew up in the outskirts of St. Louis. My husband grew up in a small town in southern Missouri. We currently live in the country, outside of Stanton, Mo.
Debra Hart purchased this House in 1998
Why Debra Hart chose Sullivan
I bought this property because it was in a quiet neighborhood, near a river that I love to float, and near a state park with many hiking trails and some caves. We opened up part of a wall between the kitchen and living room, so it's easier to entertain friends and family. I've had many friends visit and stay overnight thru the years. It is close to a small town, yet the town is large enough to have restaurants, shopping etc. It is an hour away from St. Louis, if I wanted to do big city activities.
What makes this House unique
I've enjoyed watching the deer, birds and squirrels from my deck. The house just has a comfortable feel. We built a deck around a small tree that has grown up and provides shade. It stays much cooler in the summer. We've got air conditioning, just in case, but hardly use the a/c. Gary installed the wood stove, and it's really cozy in the winter watching the fire thru the glass doors. Then we added some solar panels, that produce hot air. The furnace is needed mostly when we weren't home.

Everything was as listed and in a great location
The property is perfectly located on the edge of Meramec State Park. 10 minutes from the Park Visitor Center, access to Meramec River and Wal-Mart and restaurants. Spotless and well-stocked. There is a patio that overlooks the park (I agree with one reviewer who said that it feels that you are in a treehouse). Debra is a fantastic host--extremely responsive and easy to work. This is the perfect family getaway.
Nice getaway home
Home had all we needed for a good time. Located in midst of state Park in out of the way location, yet only 12 minutes to Walmart.
Lovely house /quiet getaway
Nice quiet getaway — this house has everything
Peaceful getaway with the comforts of home
Cozy and comfortable private home. I even got 9-1/2 hours of sleep one night - it's been years! Loved the peace and quiet; sitting out on the deck and staring out into the woods is what I enjoyed the most - watching the many robins, cardinals and other birds and listening to their happy sounds! Close to Meramec State Park, lovely drives through the woods, yet close enough to Walmart (and Imo's Pizza)!
Fantastic house next to Meremac State Park
Fantastic house that has everything you need for a great vacation. Debra has all kitchen equipment that allowed us to cook all of our meals plus a great gas stove if the weather is good to cook outside. All of the beds we used were comfy and the house is in a perfect location. It is right next to town If you want to run to Walmart and grab something but the backyard faces right up to the park so you get to see tons of beautiful birds and and feel like you are in the middle of nature. Debra recommended a fantastic float company and we were able to do a 10 mile float down the Meremac during our stay. I hope I’m able to stay at this house again as it made for an awesome vacation!
