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.

House was clean and comfortable. This is a great out in the country experience. We loved it.
Positive reviews like this that are short & sweet are great affirmations of our quest to provide a memorable experience that represents great value for all of our guests.
We just spent(5) nights here while attending the graduation of our two daughters from Benedictine College School of Nursing. Our stay at this home was so wonderful! Jany was a most gracious host and made sure we had everything we needed. The AC was not working well when we arrived, and Jany had someone out first thing the next day to have it repaired. We were most grateful as it was a hot and humid weekend. The house itself was very clean and perfectly appointed. What stands out most, however, are the amazing views and tranquility of the setting. We enjoyed relaxing on the front porch, and taking in the most glorious sunrises and sunsets all week. Jany, thank you for making our time here in Kansas most memorable... we will be back!
The place was awesome the group of us had everything we needed. We came up to hunt snow geese. But it was awesome coming back to a very peaceful place in the evening. Will definitely book again next year. They are awesome people.
We really enjoyed having this guest and his family and friends because they had a genuine love of hunting and being in the countryside. They found the peace and quiet that they were looking for after a good day hunting and they were able to do some skeet shooting not far from my house.
We hope their hunting was successful. They were wonderful guests and took great care of the house and property. They are welcome to return anytime!
Great home, great owners, fantastic experience! I will definitely book again!
It's pleasing to get a succinct, positive review from a guest that sums up their experience staying in our house and this is what we strive for.
Lovely comfortable home in the country for Christmas
This was our second year to stay over the Christmas holidays and we love the house! Comfortable bedrooms, beautiful views of the snow covered hills, all the little things that make a house a home. Plenty of room for our adult children and space to spread outside. Relaxing sunken tub in master bedroom. This place is worth repeat visits!
It's always good to get positive reviews from guests who are coming back again because they had a great experience their first time and it is our quest to have this happen for all of our guests.
Great location within 10 miles to restaurants and shopping. Very peaceful and comfortable!
We were visiting friends in Atchison KS. It is less than 10 miles to Atchison from this rental. The house is great!! The beds are comfortable and all our needs were met. Jany is a great host! Our kids really enjoyed the dogs and cows. We are looking forward to staying again in the years to come!
It’s good to see that our guests appreciate the location of the house to be quiet and remote when you’re there, and being within easy driving distance to sizeable cities like Atchison Kansas, Weston, St. Joseph, and Kansas City Missouri. It’s a winning combination that suits the moods of all of our guests.
