Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Have you ever wanted to have the quiet and solitude of being in the rolling countryside away from the stress of the city but still have all the comforts of a modern, luxurious house with a porch and rocking chairs to sit on while you watch the world go by? This 3 bedroom, 2 bath house on a working farm has all of this while being only 1 hour's drive from downtown Kansas City (45 minutes drive from World's of Fun, Oceans of Fun, and MCI airport), 20 minutes drive from St. Joseph Missouri and Missouri Western State University, 15 minutes drive from Atchison Kansas and Benedictine College, 15 minutes from Snow Creek Skiing, and 40 minutes drive from Fort Leavenworth Kansas. The house has 1 large bedroom with ensuite bathroom and two other large bedrooms with a shared bath, wood-burning fireplace, large front porch, large open plan kitchen, dining room, and all of the modern conveniences that you'd expect from a house that is less than 15 years old. If it's peace and quiet that you're after then this place is what you're looking for. It's a half-mile from the state highway on the top of a big hill so you have a panaramic degree view in all directions. The house is ideal for watching sunrises and sunsets but if you want to keep current on everything happening in the rest of the world then you can connect to the Wi-Fi. Bed linen, pillows, and towels are provided for all 3 bedrooms.

Amazing vacation we loved everything about our stay so beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home amazing views, I'v been home 3days now and miss the place so badly. It was the perfect place for our family vacation before getting back to the busy school year. Kids ages 16, 10 & 2 all enjoyed the home and most of all the cows and night sky! Our stay landed on a major meteor shower and was the highlight of our stay the sky is so open with amazing views for star gazing. Being a mom of three my only down time is early morning so I LOVED my peaceful sunrise on the porch with my coffee watching the cows and the sun come up. Thank You for making our stay WONDERFUL and giving us lifetime memories! We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: It''s always heartwarming when one of your guests really enjoys their stay in our house and has a chance to experience the many unique aspects of having a modern house with a front porch in a quiet, country environment and just enjoy being there. This is what we want to share with all of our guests.

Great Accommodations!! Great Location!! Great People!!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we arrived to the time we left we felt like we were home. Our son was getting married in Weston, MO and we needed accommodations close by. The typical choices were available (hotels, B&Bs, etc.) but due to our need for room to plan, prep, relax and visit, we opted for this home in the country. We were not disappointed. The house had everything we needed, with big rooms, plenty of sleeping space and a fully functional kitchen/dining room. The first morning we woke to the sound of a bobwhite quail outside our bedroom window. You can't get that just anywhere. And, during the evenings, we sat outside and watched the lightening bugs (a.k.a. fireflies depending on what part of the country you're from). We needed a place to hold a rehearsal dinner for 30 people and Jany's daughter, Laura, just happened to be a caterer. Everything came together without a hitch (unheard of in the wedding planning world). The rehearsal dinner location was right down the road from our accommodations, at Jany's house. Laura prepared a Taco Bar for us consisting of local grass fed beef, free range chicken and farm to table vegetables. Even the desert (homemade cookies and ice cream) was wonderful. If you need a caterer for whatever event you are planning, I highly recommend Laura and her crew. I cannot say enough good things about the place or the people. We will have more opportunities to visit the Kansas City area, and I'm sure we'll be back to stay at this location.

Owner's Response: It's such a great feeling when you can provide a wonderful experience for a guest, especially now that my niece has started a catering service for guests who require a special event like a wedding rehearsal dinner. It sounds like it was a success and now we can add event catering to the range of services that we can offer to guests who rent the house. Weston Missouri has a couple of venues that specialize in weddings and the house is only about 35 minutes from it so is a great place to stay to be close, but in a very peaceful and natural surrounding.

We were at the house for a family wedding. It was a great alternative to staying at a hotel! We enjoyed the country atmosphere and it was a clean a well kept property!

Owner's Response: We get quite a few guests each year who are in the area for family weddings and they stay in my house as an alternative to a hotel. So far their experiences are the same as this guest and it is very satisfying to have this kind of reaction.

Relaxing & Refreshing Weekend at the Farm House

  • 5 of 5

We rented out the Farm House for the Memorial Day weekend with a group of friends . This was the first time farm house experience for all of us. For 3 days we never felt we were staying away from our home :-) The kids loved this place so much they never wanted to leave. We had 3 families (with kids of course!!!) and the 3 bed rooms was more than sufficient for us. The kitchen comes loaded with all the dishes you need so you can cook just like you do at home . This house is located in serene spot leaving out all the noisiness and standing amidst the natural beauty. You can relax all day just by hanging out at the Porch :-) Our host Jany Thomas was so kind and helpful with all our questions. She promptly responded to our questions before our trip and during our stay. All the attractions are just an hr drive from this place. Will definitely recommend this to everyone and we are already planning to visit this place again :-)

Thanks a ton David & Jany ...

Owner's Response: It's very rewarding when guests who are from the city get a chance to experience having a family holiday in the countryside and enjoy it like these folks did. Being in a beautiful rural environment with all the amenities of a modern home and being close to so many interesting towns to explore is the key selling feature of our little slice of heaven in Missouri that we can share with our guests.

Loved this House

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family during my daughter's college graduation. It is a short 10-15 minute drive to the Benedictine campus. The house was large enough for all of us and Jany was very accommodating. We had a bbq after the graduation and there was a total of 23 and we never felt crowded. I would highly recommend this house to anyone.

Owner's Response: We have quite a few guests who are visiting sons and daughters studying at Benedictine College in Atchison Kansas because it a short drive to the campus but the house is in the beautiful rural countryside on the Missouri side of the river and an excellent place to relax and entertain guests if needed. A compelling combination indeed.
