    Was a great place to stay! We loved that it was close to walking trail, food, wineries, and breweries! It was a beautiful weekend to sit on the deck.

    We had a lovely stay at this property during our extended wine weekend in Defiance/Augusta! Perfect for two couples! The home was clean & well equipped. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our coffee & breakfasts daily. The fireplaces in the bedrooms & living area were a bonus since it was cold & snowy. The house was centrally located for our travels to nearby wineries, distilleries & restaurants. We would stay here again!!

    We had a lovely stay at this centrally located home in Defiance, MO. It was made a perfect home base for our extended wine weekend in Defiance/Augusta! The two private bedrooms were a great fit for the two couples. The house was clean & well equipped. We cooked all our breakfasts at the house before heading out to several nearby wineries each day. Since it was cold & snowy, we enjoyed the fireplaces in the bedrooms & living room. We spent time around the large dining room table visiting & enjoying our wine purchases. Had the weather been warm, the deck would have been amazing for people watching. The spiral staircase to the upstairs bedroom was a neat feature - as well as the heated towel rack in the upstairs bathroom! We would definitely stay here again!

    The only thing I would recommend is that when you list the amenities you say that the grill isn't a gas grill. Other than that nothing to add. Great place and with all the wineries so close by it made for a great weekend with beautiful fall weather and scenery.

    The property was very nice and we enjoyed staying in it. The only problem was that the bar across the street kept blaring music until 1:30am so we weren't able to sleep well.
