About Fran Henry
We're warm friendly people who have a lovely blended family with 5 children & 12 grandchildren. Larry is from KS and Fran is from Miami, FL. We've been married for 7 1/2 years and still consider ourselves newlyweds. Larry is a Kansas State University graduate and loves Kansas State football. We also love the Kansas City Chiefs football team and enjoy watching their games on TV. For Christmas last year our son gave us matching KC Chiefs jerseys; Fran's first jersey! Fran came to Springfield, MO to go to college and then spent 19 years living in Africa. Larry got weary of retirement and has had a Furniture Store and Tea Room in Rogersville for 20 years. Rogersville is our home and we love it here on our 26 wooded acres. We hope you will too.
Fran Henry purchased this Cabin in 1994
Why Fran Henry chose Rogersville
When Larry retired from the government in 1994 his youngest daughter lived in Springfield, about 30 minutes from Rogersville. He loved the area and the fact that it was wooded and scenic having come from the wide open spaces of Kansas. He bought this land and built the cabin which the family lived in while they had the main house built. He's lived here ever since and would find it difficult to ever leave. He loves gardening and we have a beautiful Hosta Garden, and many other beautiful flowers and flowering trees native to this area. We're surrounded in the Spring with Dogwood and Red bud trees. These are two of Fran's favorites! We have a lovely pond that's a natural aquifer and never goes dry. Larry planted Cat tails where Red Winged Blackbirds come every year to nest and have their babies. He also planted Willow trees and Bald Cypress around the lake. In addition to our beautiful birds that we feed, we have all kinds of wildlife that visit us from time to time. We see Deer on a regular basis as they love grazing in our meadows, Foxes, Raccoons, Groundhogs, Squirrels, Chipmunks, Armadillos, Opossums, Coyotes and we even had a young Black Bear come by once. Birding is Fran's hobby and we have about 15 varieties of birds that we see regularly and many more seasonally. We also have owls and hawks that live in our woods and are here all the time. We don't feed them though. LOL!

Cozy and quiet!
We Loved, loved, loved this cabin! The owner was so nice and easy to communicate with! We loved the location in Rogersville. The cabin was adorable and that bed was a dream! You just sunk into that mattress and we got a great rest! We found a roadside rural fresh honey stand close by and a great little tackle shop for the hubby! The cabin was outside of Springfield & Branson but that was the reason why we choose it! It was so quiet and peaceful!
Little cabin in the woods
We had a wonderful stay at the cabin. It was the perfect size for my family of five. The bed was very comfortable, and Fran had stocked the refrigerator with some small necessities. We would definitely stay here again if the opportunity arises!
Little cabin in lovely rural wooded setting
Sweet cabin in the beautiful woods was a welcome respite from being on the road for many days. It was nice to have a comfortable home base for a couple of days rather than being in a hotel. Our host greeted us upon arrival, wanting to be sure we had everything we needed. She and her husband who live next door and kindly provided essentials for breakfasts and some staples that meant we could cook our own meals by buying just a few things at a nearby grocery store. Well located for exploring the area, we definitely enjoyed our stay!
Loved our cabin in the woods
My daughter and I enjoyed the cabin. The property is beautiful and we slept very well in the comfortable bed.
Brittney you all were perfect guests! The cabin was so clean and neat that it looked like no one had even stayed there. We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay! Come back anytime.
Cozy cabin in the woods
We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin was clean and our navigation took us right to it with no problems. The owner left things in the refrigerator for us to be able to make breakfast and emailed is during our stay to see if there was anything else we needed. We would definitely go back.
Thank you so much for your great review. We loved having you stay with us and hope you'll come back again some time in the future.

Secluded cabin in the woods close to everything! Perfect location & size for our family vacation. Loved being able to cook meals & enjoy down time between activities in nearby Springfield. Cabin has everything you need. Quant home away from home.
Chris and family were awesome guests! They took amazing care of the cabin and left it so neat and tidy it didn't look like anyone had stayed there. They were great communicators and followed the house rules perfectly. We'd love to have them come and stay with us again anytime they're in the area.
