This is a secluded cabin in the middle of 20+ acres on Big Sugar Creek. Perfect for a romantic getaway or bring the kids or another couple to share the experience. Nothing beats a peaceful evening sitting around a camp fire watching the stars on a clear night. The eagles roost along the bluffs and return each year from November through March. The cabin is on the bluff side of the creek . You can also hike down to the creek or there are swimming areas near by accessible via car. (Mac's Big Rock and Owl's Nest) The closest canoe out-fitter is approx. 2 miles away at Sugar Island Campground. The close city of Anderson, Missouri has an old time movie theater that it famous for it's popcorn.
The area is known for its horse trails and hunting at Huckleberry Ridge State Forest. According to legend, locals used to the harvest huckleberries, which are a type of blueberry. The forest has miles of horse trails suitable for the novice or experienced rider. Popular sites include: Green Hollow, Cave Hollow, Overlook Point and Sheep Herders bluff. Horse trailers are welcome. The park also offers bicycling, bird watching, camping, and hiking.
Big Sugar Creek derived its name from the numerous groves of sugar maples which grew along its banks. Just up stream and east of Pineville is Cyclone, Missouri. A popular float is from the low water bridge at Cyclone to Craig O'Lea. The road to Cyclone meanders up the Big Sugar Creek Valley. A post office was established December, 1883 and Cyclone was named from the great cyclone of April 18, 1880, that passed through this part of the state.
During the warmer months the creek is a popular place for picnics, sunbathing, camping and canoeing. Elk River along with its tributaries, provides some of the clearest water and best canoeing in the state. The skill level is rated easy to moderate. The Elk is about as easy as they come, while Big Sugar, Little Sugar and Indian Creeks are narrower, swifter and more challenging. Bring your own canoe/kayak or rent from several canoe outfitters in the area. If you have ever wanted to try stream snorkeling, this is the place to do it!

I grew up in the area, attending school in nearby Neosho, Mo. This was always a popular place to go and I loved the clear water creek. Years later, I purchased land on the creek and built a cabin. here. My family have enjoyed camping, 4-wheeling and canoeing at 'MeMa's Cabin'.
Mary purchased this cabin in 2007
I enjoy the water and have spent several childhood days on Big Sugar Creek. I purchased the land (20+ acres) and had the cabin built as a weekend getaway.
In Pineville, Missouri, an annual 'Jesse James Days' festival is held in August. The 1939 film, Jesse James starring Tyrone Power and Henry Fonda as Jesse and his brother, Frank, was filmed in Pineville. Jesse James was the first Western filmed in color, and it remains a vibrant adventure. Each year, the Pineville festival includes an outdoor screening of the film.

My wife and I spent the weekend here just to get away. It was awesome. We especially enjoyed the outside hot tub and the fire pit. Very nice.
This was our first time to use VRBO to book a vacation stay. Our weekend at this secluded cabin on Big Sugar Creek was awesome. Everything was perfect and exactly as described. We enjoyed the new hot tub, built a fire in the large fire pit, watched the eagles, and hiked along the bluff. We want to come back when you have snow and bring our sled and snowshoes. Thank you again, T & M
Really nice place deep in the woods of southern Missouri. Great place to get away and relax. The owner was really nice and helpful. We would definitely come again.
We had a wonderful time and the property exceeded our expectations. We plan to return and highly recommend pinehill cabin to everyone
My husband and I celebrated our 24th anniversary, at Mary's cabin and it was a perfect, romantic getaway!
Everything from the cozy cabin to the beautiful scenery, was beyond relaxing.
The weekend of our stay, was a bit chilly, but it was perfect weather for the hot tub, under the stars!
Mary is a delight! She came to our rescue, when our car wouldn't start, the morning, we were leaving. Thank you, for that, Mary!
We can't wait to return!
Again, thank you Mary, for EVERYTHING!!! :)
I would give this an average review but have to select "poor" simply because we had NO hot water for the three days and nights my family stayed there this past July. The housekeeper apparently forgot to change the hot water heater from "vacation" mode. There were nine of us (6 adults and 3 kids who slept on sleeping bags) and had to take COLD showers the whole time. Tip: You have to provide your own toilet paper and trash bags. For that kind of money, I kinda expect hot water, toilet paper and trash bags. While the cabin was nicely decorated it is not set up for a family gathering. It would be find for one or two couples but there is no large gathering area unless you go outside. And the walk down to the creek is long and VERY steep. The owner made all these rules, but when it was their mistake about the hot water she refunded a pitiful amount. ThWe will never stay here again.
