Spring Lake Ranch is outstanding! We took our entire staff for a weekend retreat and we could not be more pleased. The property sits nestled on beautiful rolling hills just a little more than an hour from St. Louis. It's private and peaceful with a newly renovated in-ground swimming pool, meandering shady walkways and plenty of trails to explore...The rustic stone lodge is enormous and very clean. It features several bedrooms with newly updated bathrooms, a huge gourmet kitchen with both gas and electric ranges. The large formal dining room, and vaulted ceiling game room will knock your socks off! I cannot explain just how big this lodge is, other than to say, you could comfortably sleep 30 people and still have room to breathe and plenty of space to find alone time, inside and outside...The beautiful and serene spring-fed lake is just a short walk away with kayaks, fishing and a very large covered pavilion perfect for big families or groups. We floated in the clean lake most of the day and didn't see a single soul other than the people in our group... The super-friendly owners were on the property during our entire stay, but we didn't see them unless we needed something... We did not want to leave at the end of our stay and are already planning our return trip next summer! Be sure to check out the pictures I took of this amazing place!
