Fredrick was wonderful. This is a beautiful property and is just what our family needed to get away. We can't wait to go back.

This venue is so amazing and unique. It’s close enough to St. Louis that it’s under an hour drive and it’s far enough away that it’s an actual vacation. No place I’ve stayed or wedding venue had all of the amenities that this location does. Schedule a visit, it’s definitetly worth the drive. We were sold as soon as we saw the house from the driveway. Breathtaking!

We rented Sunset Bluffs for a family gathering for people coming from 3 states. It was the perfect spot for our needs. The house is beautiful and the lake is, too. I cannot say enough about the owner, Fred. He was just wonderful and really went out of his way to make our stay just right. This was a special trip for our family and he knows why...he really made us feel welcome. Thank you, again, Fred! He is doing some updates to the the property and there were a project or two not quite finished, but this did NOT in any way deter from the property. I know that he is focused more on making Sunset Bluffs a full time wedding venue; so, to all the brides out there, I say this: This place is gorgeous and any ceremony here would be wonderful. Fred is really easy to work with, and your day will be special! One more thing: I have to comment on Fred's integrity. There was a mix up with our original dates, and he absolutely went above and beyond to make it right and keep everyone happy. His honesty and willingness to work with us meant as much to my family as anything else. We enjoyed the big, beautiful kitchen for cooking, fishing, swimming, and kayaking in the gorgeous water, and mostly the late night "cousin" talks around the gas fire pit down by the water. Give Sunset Bluffs a look. I don't believe you will be disappointed!

I took a group to Sunset Bluffs and cannot say enough great things. The excellent experience started with our host. He was there to meet the group when we arrived to show us around and make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The communication was easy and the responses to all of my questions were very fast. The house is incredible and you can tell they spend a bunch of time making it the most unique place around! We took 18 of us down there and the place is built so that everyone could do something different and have their own great time or you could hang out as a group. We spent the weekend watching Cards baseball and Blues hockey in a movie theater, fishing on a lake and hanging out on a beach - in Missouri! I recommend this venue for anyone looking for a local getaway.

We enjoyed our stay at Sunset Bluffs! Fredrick was there to greet us when we got there and showed us around. The theater was under construction and the wifi was in and out, but we had no intention of spending our time indoors anyway. Kayaks, rafts, and beach volleyball kept us entertained!

Place was ok, but a lot of construction. Patches on the wall, etc. No theatre room or wifi. Bad service for Verizon. Be sure to have documentation before you leave that place is ok clean-wise to protect your deposit. For what we paid I would not go back.

Celebrated my parents 50th wedding anniversary. Best place ever!!! Everyone loved the lake with the paddle boats, kayaks, and inflatables. Frederick was quick to answer any questions we had. Only had to leave the property to buy groceries. Frederick had everything else covered including beach towels. The indoor grill was my favorite. There was plenty of room to spread out with the 4 families. Playing pool and other games at night was a great relaxing time. My father beat cancer a couple of years ago and this is just what he needed. Seeing the smiles on my parents faces made the whole trip worth it!! Would love to stay again!!!

Frederick was an excellent host. Even before our stay he was easily accessible to answer any questions I had (response time on the VRBO site should say immediate instead of within an hour). He also greeted us on our first day to ensure we knew how to work everything and share the amenities around the property. We had a minor glitch with DirecTV and he was immediately on the phone with them to resolve the issue. I can't say enough as to how hospitable he was. The home is beautiful inside and out! It's secluded, yet close (5 min) to retail, grocery, dining, etc. It's also within 45-50 minutes to St. Louis. On Friday we were able to fish (they have some growing to do, but certainly there to catch), paddle boat, cook in the wonderful kitchen and enjoy the amazing outside of the house. Then, on Saturday, we headed to St. Louis for the Budweiser BeerMaster tour and came back and enjoyed a quiet and relaxing (no kids) evening. The 11 of us were very pleased (I received constant "you did good" comments from my guests, referring to my rental pick)! The only complaint I have, is that we didn't stay long enough! I highly recommend planning your stay here! Thank you, Frederick! It was a pleasure!

The owner is a great host. Very laid back and quick to return phone calls / messages. We planned a quick weekend getaway for 15 of us the St. Louis area. Everyone was in awe of the house as soon as they walked in the door. Over half of our group was kids and they had a blast. The theatre room, outdoor grounds, pool table, and sheer size of the house made sure that they were entertained. It was a great place to sit back, relax, and enjoy the view. Everyone enjoyed themselves!!
