About Crystal Earhart

My name is Crystal. I live on a farm with my husband, Gerald and son, Clayton. I am slightly addicted to horses and love working with animals. I have stock dogs that help me with most everything I do on the farm. We have cattle, goats and a few chickens.

Why Crystal Earhart chose Missouri

We bought this piece of property with a lovely home on it from the family of a man named Sam Murphy because it joined our farm and we thought it would be a good place to try the vacation rental business. It went so well that we have since built two more cabins on the same property. We love meeting new people and sharing some of the great experiences of country living with others.

What makes this cabin unique

There are several short trails for walking on the property and abundant wildlife in the area. The covered porch, complete with a table and comfortable chairs is a great place to gather and enjoy some fresh air. The fire pit out back (firewood included) is the place to be once the sun goes down. If you are looking for a relaxing retreat in the country, you've found it in the Sassafras cabin.

Relaxing comfy cabin away from the noise

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the cabin. We had everything we could possibly need and felt so comfortable. The hot tub was luxurious and we enjoyed spending time outside grilling. The common area was a nice place to spend time and I think we were the only folks there so we had a lot of privacy and sunshine. It was perfect romantic and relaxing weekend away complete with a Jacuzzi tub inside and winery with music down the road. Our hosts were wonderful and even helped out when we accidentally shut the door with the keys inside. The only small thing was that I hoped the bed would be more comfortable but it was a very little thing in a wonderful weekend. We are hoping to return and will recommend to our friends.

Awsome view and accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this modern cabin with a spectacular view of the Meramec Valley. The pavilion and access to the Meramec River was like being on our own private resort. There were even 2 caves and a spring to go explore and play in! This is a very safe and family friendly place to enjoy for 1 night, or 2 weeks!

Just what the doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 and 2 pups enjoyed our stay in the Sassafras immensely! Whether you just want to relax on the deck or in the hot tub, explore the wooded paths & caves, float, fish, sun, cook, BBQ, or drive in to town for supper, ice cream, or comb unique shops - you'll find something for everyone here. Our hosts were very gracious and accommodating, and we were quite envious of their dream setup! Cabins are very clean, spacious, and everything is in great condition & working order. Everything you need to enjoy your stay is included, free firewood for the pit, wi-fi, cable, towels, bedding, kitchen items, hot tub. We can't wait to go back, it's the perfect quick get-a-way from St Louis. Eager to try all of their cabins! Each are just as perfect and unique as the next!

Beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife enjoyed this cabin for our 5th anniversary. We had been on a few trips before, cruises, bed and breakfast, hotel, but this was by far the most relaxing stay we have ever had! I would recommend it to anyway.

Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

The Sassafras cabin was more than we expected! The pictures don't capture the true scenic beauty of the river or how cute the cabin is. The cabin was well-appointed. Plenty of towels and the kitchen had everything we needed. The deck and hot tub were FANTASTIC! We took advantage of the riverside pavilion for a bonfire. It was a wonderful weekend getaway and we put this on the top of our list for Steelville area cabins.

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We were in need of a get away and booked this cabin at the last minute. The owners were wonderful to work with. We arrived late to the porch light on and Christmas lights on ,on the fireplace mantle. The cabin is gorgeous, rustic, clean, beautifully decorated, well stocked with all you need. Just bring food and clothes. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and drinking coffee on the lovey covered deck! It was rainy, but we enjoyed all the peace and quiet this place has to offer. I can't wait to come back in warmer weather and enjoy their lovely river front area.. It looked well appointed with all you need for a day relaxing down by the river. Thanks for sharing your lovely cabin!
