My family would enjoy Columbia, Missouri more if we didn't have to deal with the traffic in the city all of the time. I think I may have found an option. It's a country estate about 15 minutes outside of Columbia and features a heated pool, paddle boats and a hot tub.

This gorgeous Columbia, Missouri estate is available on Airbnb. Here's a little of how Susan the host describes this place:

Nestled onto 10 private, peaceful acres, w/pond about 15 minutes from downtown Columbia and the University, close to restaurants, dining and family-friendly activities, that is if you want to leave the Pool and the quiet of the country. 8 beds, + more possible. You'll love the kitchen, the high ceilings, the views, and the coziness. The in-ground heated pool is 25 x 50 feet so pretty large.

Ah, yes. That heated pool and hot tub. Let's take a look.

According to the listing, this place is available from mid-March through mid-November which gives you a pretty large window of possibilities. It's not inexpensive with a nightly cost of $450 per night, but if you have a family gathering planned near Columbia, this would be epic.

They also mentioned that this is a destination with enough entertainment you would likely not even want to head into Columbia to do things. Considering all the water options alone, I think that's a pretty good guess.

Make sure to check out the full Airbnb listing for way more pictures, updates and availability. Bring on the paddle boats.
