Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

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!

About Mary

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

Why Mary chose Pineville North

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.

                                                                      We loved our stay, perfect for our mini honeymoon. The bed upstairs was very comfortable, and the setting very beautiful. We would have loved to have access down to the creek, but the road down to the parking area was overgrown and not passable in our little VW Jetta. We also found old coffee grounds and mold growing in the coffee pot left undiscovered from some prior occupant. Suggest doublechecking this.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

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
