Like barns, love pools and don't want to adventure much past St. Louis? I have a destination possibility for you that checks all of those boxes. It's a barn loft that does include a sweet pool and it's less than an hour from St. Louis.
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.
If you have ever daydreamed about having a rustic Missouri home and you also enjoy swimming and movies, this might be the best there is. It's a Missouri estate that has just about every entertainment option you can imagine and wait until you see the wild outdoor pool and the long, curving water slide.
