Best St Joseph Vacation Rentals

About St. Joseph - Informally called “St. Joe”, St. Joseph is an alluring city along the Missouri River that gives locals and vacationers a glimpse into America’s rough-and-tumble frontier days. The county seat of Buchanan County is a thriving modern town where history blends seamlessly with culture, art, wonderful green spaces, and endless entertainment for all ages. Looking for vacation rentals that will make you feel like you're in the past and present at the same time? With Owner Direct Vacation Rentals, you can choose from accommodations that will make you feel just that.

Where to Stay & Why - Aside from popular lodgings, like condo rentals and villa rentals, we also have accommodations that will serve as spacious retreats filled with Victorian-era antiques mixed with comfortable and modern furniture. You can choose a unit that feels like home while having access to the foyer, parlor, dining room, and billiard room, all while immersed in the splendor of the Gilded Age. Book vacation rentals that feature its own private entrance, elegant furnishings, and a fully functional kitchen.

What to See & Do - St. Joseph is the starting point for the famous Pony Express and the place where notorious Jesse James met his end. You can check them out at the Patee House Museum or the Pony Express National Museum. Head out to the Black Archives Museum to browse displays of the Underground Railroad, or take the kids to the Remington Nature Center for their monthly scavenger hunt. Let them use their imagination while donning period costumes at the Pioneer Children’s Playground.

Where to Eat & Drink - Foodies should make time for the Bad Art Bistro and Fredrick Inn Steakhouse. After watching a show from Historic Missouri Theatre and Robidoux Landing Playhouse, dine at Em Chamas Brazilian Grill. There are also wineries in the countryside south of St. Joseph. There’s Jowler Creek Vineyard & Winery, Pirtle Winery, and Riverwood Winery. The Vineyards is perfect for romantic dinners as they provide candlelight dining on an outdoor patio.

How to Get Here & Getting Around - St. Joe is at the intersection of I-29 and US 26, 30 mins. north of Kansas City International Airport in Kansas City. I-229 forms a loop that goes to Downtown. US 59, US 71, US 169, and Missouri Route 6 also runs through the town. There are places that can be explored on foot, but if you want to check out the whole area, it’s best to bring or rent a car.

When to Go - Without the ocean waters to help moderate the changing temperature, the summer months can be extremely hot and humid, while the winter can be freezing. The best time to visit is during spring and fall.
