The SpaceRecently I stayed up until Midnight to welcome a couple with 3 dogs in crates who wanted to sleep together so they would not bark. I told them to reserve the Cute RV for that price but sleep in living room to have room for all.....If you want the couch/living room for more than one with showers or coffee, please sign up also for the Cute RV price otherwise a single can have the couch w/o coffee for the tenting price. Guest AccessWe all share the same bathroom in the house. The French couple brought their own food and cooked it in the kitchen. Although I am a vegetarian so they followed the rules to not bring meat into the house. Interaction with GuestsSometimes I am available throughout the day, not always. If I seem to be awake when you're ready to leave - do say goodbye! I'm happy to share travel tips: Like Precious Moments in Carthage, Federal Park for George Washington Carver in Diamond, and Museums in Sarcoxie. The NeighborhoodFresh country air and the quiet, although just 1/2 mile from the Interstate, convenient. Chinese restaurant in town. Pick wild herbs year-old on my property if you like! Getting AroundAsk me if you'd like a guided tour and what the cost might be. Other Things to NoteI have a sweet old fox terrier who lives outside. Sometimes barks or the neighbors' dogs bark.

The Cottage living room features a daybed with trundle underneath that sleeps two; and the loft has two twin beds with ample space for 2 cots. The fully equipped kitchen has a table that seats 4 - 6, and the small, efficient galley bathroom has a shower (no tub.) We have intentionally prepared a quiet refuge specifically designed for you to unwind and unplug. Take the time to do the things you keep putting aside - maybe reading, writing, hiking, painting, creating, just staring into space . . .?? Our hand-built stone cottage at Ozark Highlands Ranch is in a rural setting with meandering, shady hiking trails, nature-watching, and access to our pond and beautiful, refreshing creek - magnificent opportunities for stress reduction!

The NeighborhoodThe nearest neighbors are several stones' throws away. Peace and quiet are the operative words to describe the environment at Stirling Cottage. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation. Other Things to NoteA great time of year to visit is during kidding season (usually in April and May) when the goats on our 147 acre farm begin to give birth. Goat kids are like puppies - cute, cuddly, and lively! Many people stop on the road during this several week period, just to watch the baby goats play, and perhaps hold one.

      The SpaceThe Cottage (formerly called Bannockburn,) was our first listing with Airbnb in 2014. Since then, we have had numerous five-star reviews. At the end of this description, there are a few of the comments that our kind guests had to say about The Cottage under its earlier listing. Our hand-built stone cottage is rustic, simple, and perfect for those seeking a stress-free getaway from city living! With 4 beds and 1 bathroom, we can comfortably accommodate 4 people, however, for families or groups that don't mind close quarters, we have two cots and a portable crib so we can adapt to seven people in a pinch. A spacious kitchen allows you to create custom meals – be warned - it has a lower than normal ceiling (about 7'.) The upstairs bedroom is accessed by a steep, narrow, low-clearance stairway that can be difficult for small children, but there is a "kiddie gate" for use to prevent little ones from climbing unexpectedly. There are two steps up into both the bathroom and kitchen. The bathroom has a shower – no tub. A most interesting, fun time to visit The Cottage is during our annual spring kidding season when the fields are literally "jumping" with baby goats. Normally kidding occurs during May and June. Guests are welcome to feed limited amounts of snacks to our horses, goats and chickens at no extra charge. Special arrangements can include a goat-milking lesson for children when one of our milk goats is "fresh" for a special fee of $25. Ask about our discount for clergy retreats and active military personnel. We are located just off of I-44 south and east of Carthage – due east of Joplin, with easy access to area attractions (complete directions will be given after booking. ) SOME RECENT REVIEWS: We loved being at this home on the range! We were two couples and appreciated the cabin and the surroundings. Even the cat kept close watch on us. Merre baked fresh bread for us and we had wonderful farm fresh eggs for breakfast. Lots of fun for all of us and we all slept well too! What a wonderful, peaceful getaway(URL HIDDEN)California - April, 2016 Merre was so sweet. We loved the country setting. We walked the land, pet the horses, and fell in love with Jill the cat. The cottage was cozy and clean(URL HIDDEN)Missouri - March 2016 We were looking for a relaxing place where we could enjoy family time, and that was exactly what we found. Merre was very accommodating; there was homemade bread and a friendly outdoor cat waiting for us upon arrival! The neighborhood was quiet and a close drive to town, but also felt like an oasis with the little cottage yard where you could hang clothes out to dry, watch the horses and goats, and enjoy the sunset and sunrise. Thank you for having us(URL HIDDEN)Texas - March 2016 As always, a delightful trip. The Wired Women have been spoiled by Merre. It's the special touches that make it so unique and quaint. She makes us feel like we have known her forever. The fire pit was a treat. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Truly, The Wired Women !! ♡♡(URL HIDDEN) Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas - March 2016 This little cottage was the most wonderful piece of of Missouri. The hostess was the most gracious person I have had the pleasure of meeting. The cottage was exactly what my family needed just at the perfect time. It was clean and inviting, with a full kitchen. My kids loved being able to run and play in the big country yard. The host was always available but never intrusive. I would choose to stay ONLY here next time I am in Missouri(URL HIDDEN) Germany - February 2016 What a very sweet and fun little treasure this cottage is! Don't miss the chance to stay here if you're in the area, even for a night, as we were on our cross country trip. We adored driving in and parking between the big red barn and the little matching cottage, greeted by two super friendly kitties and hearing the goats nearby. We had a lovely evening watching a movie and admiring the beautifully, carefully decorated interior, before waking up to a magical fog-filled morning before we took our coffee out to the yard to explore. A dog herded the goats for a visit before we got to go out and offer the horses a provided-treat in their pasture. Beautiful rolling hills, lovely landscaping around the cottage, a great outdoor patio for working or to relax. Plenty of room upstairs and downstairs for sleeping and making oneself at home, even though it is not a huge place(URL HIDDEN) Indiana - Nov 2015 Guest AccessOn the third Saturday in October, Carthage hosts one of the top 20 Missouri gatherings - the Maple Leaf Festival: "a tradition for 50 years, this week-long celebration offers what is considered one of Missouri’s largest parades followed by a variety of special events including more than 80 craft booths and food vendors."

        The SpaceKeep in mind - this is a tiny house - an adventure in bygone days when life was physically hard, but simple; and country life was desirable. If you want something really out of the ordinary, come experience the Milk House. . . The NeighborhoodThe Milk House is one of the outbuildings on a working 60 acre farm. The nearest neighbor is a long stone's throw away, so the peace, quiet, and beauty of this farm will gently roll away the demand and stresses of life. Add to that, beautiful St. Gertrudis cattle, the boastful strutting free ranging rooster and his Brahman feather-footed hens, Java and Jack, the two (very) affectionate, but strictly outdoor cats, a hammock under the trees - and you have the idyllic environment of the Milk House at Ozark Highlands.

Plenty of room upstairs and downstairs for sleeping and making oneself at home, even though it is not a huge place. Indiana - Nov 2015

        "Thirties" is a spacious apartment on the lower level of Stirling Cottage featuring a hand-built massive stone fireplace, a fully equipped 1930's - style kitchen and newly installed, sparkling clean bathroom. The main room has a daybed that sleeps two, with an art screen that separates it from the "bedroom" with twin beds. Thirties is situated on 60 beautiful, peaceful acres and is a working farm with a laughing creek bordering the west edge of the property. Collect your own eggs, lounge in the hammock with one of the affectionate cats, listen to the birds and have morning coffee leisurely on one of the decks, and take a journey back to a simpler time with the vintage ambiance of this lodging.

        Newly remodeled, Stirling Cottage is the bigger "sister" property across the road from the Cottage at Ozark Highlands Farm and a perfect location for family reunions, personal or small group retreats and celebrations of all kinds. Stirling is a 1930's -era hand-built stone and wood farmhouse, with four large bedrooms, and 2 1/2 bathrooms (another bedroom and full bath are being planned.} "Twigs" is the master bedroom, with king-size bed, chaise lounge, whimsical decor, and views of our east fields. "Vintage" offers two antique double beds and decor with four large windows showcasing stunning sunsets. "Maps" and "Blooms" are two dormitory -style bedrooms on the second floor with half-bath. "Maps," a room the guys will like, is decorated with artifacts and antiques and has three twin beds (one is X-long) ; while "Blooms" for the gals, is decorated with bright colors, floral fabrics, and wicker. It has four twin beds. Stirling is situated on 60 beautiful, serene, stress-reducing acres offering hiking, nature-watching, playing in our cool, refreshing creek, or just sitting on the deck enjoying the sights and sounds of the country. There are currently beds for 13, but we will shortly add another bedroom for two. Also, some camping is also permitted on the grounds for an additional charge. I love to host family reunions, getaway and craft retreats, birthday parties, anniversaries, and events of all kinds! Please contact me for specific pricing.
