Wonderful place to stay! It exceeded our expectations. The owner is so hospitable and has thought of everything! The house was very clean and inviting. Loved that it is such a short walk to the Katy trail, downtown Boonville, and a short drive to Rocheport. We would definitely recommend this place ...
