An Ozark Family Vacation
Just outside of Steelville, Missouri, River Oaks Ranch is a magical getaway where friends and family can relax and reconnect. The lodge and grounds are a perfect site for family vacations, reunions, small corporate retreats and weddings.
Estate grounds extend for more than 200 acres through the rolling Ozark Mountains in the heart of the Mark Twain National Forest. Walk out of the ranch gate and you are on the Ozark Trail, a scenic Missouri treasure with hundreds of miles of hiking/riding/equestrian trails.
Graciously appointed with antiques, artwork, Persian carpeting and many other comforts, River Oaks Lodge is still a welcoming place for families, with plenty of room inside and out for children to play and explore. The 10-foot dining room table seats 12, with another table nearby that seats 6. The 30x30 great room has a fireplace that spans 20 feet!
Step out of the great room onto the 30-foot furnished porch and have your morning coffee while enjoying a panoramic view of the Courtois River Valley and Missouri Ozark mountain ridges. The lodge sleeps up to 16 comfortably, with five spacious bedrooms and three baths.
Guests who want to enjoy a fire can gather around the fire pit in the cedar grove behind the Lodge. A fishing lake stocked with catfish, bass and crappie lies just outside the door.
Guided trail rides are also available at either of two local outfitters within 10 minutes of the estate. Ranch staff can arrange these for you.
