Property description

This property has been fully restored without losing its vintage feel and historic significance. ''Taneywood'' was built by master craftsmen from Chicago in 1926 as a summer home for a Springfield, MO politician. The main lodge contains 3 bedrooms (office could be a 4th bedroom), and 3 full bathrooms. The original hardwood floors are in all the rooms and there are large walk in closets in the upstairs bedrooms. The kitchen boasts native limestone counter tops and a fully-restored Wedgewood Stove. An additional two cabins and a two-car garage sit on 3.25 acres. The exterior features rocked flower beds, raised garden beds, picnic areas, walkways, an outdoor patio, fireplace, grill and waterfall. The lodge was built before there were any roads in Rockaway Beach, and was positioned to take full effect of a passive solar design with a now glassed-in sleeping porch that faces Lake Taneycomo that helps warm the house in the winter and keeps it cooler in the summer. The property is eligible for entry in the National Register of Historic Places and it is rumored that it was one of Harry Truman's favorite places to visit! It would make a great bed-and-breakfast or retreat property.
