Escape To The Country In Comfort And Style

Bedrooms 3
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.

Great location within 10 miles to restaurants and shopping. Very peaceful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen makes the house for our family of 7. We have cooked Thanksgiving dinner in this kitchen for the past two years and served dinner for 11. Jany is on property and has everything you might need. Saint Joseph is 25 minutes drive from the house and has a variety of restaurants to choose from if cooking is not your thing.

The house sits on a hill in the middle of an 1800 acre working farm. It is nice to walk the gravel road out to the main road and back. The kids enjoy running around outside. Sunset are gorgeous on this property.

Owner's Response: Family reunions and gatherings are one of the main reasons that guests choose our property and the open floor plan of the dining room, kitchen, and living room works exceptionally well for the whole process of simultaneous cooking, visiting, serving, and dining. This review reinforces these qualities of not only the house but the rural setting on a working farm and I'm so glad that it provided a memorable holiday experience.

Most wonderful vacation weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were in the area to celebrate my Dad's 97th birthday, and visit his home (Nortonville, KS.) This was very convenient to visit the farm, and the relatives in the area. It was so relaxing to sit at the table and look out over the beautiful fields. We all enjoyed the cows coming to visit, and one of Janey's dogs even came to welcome us the first day. Janey checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed; she even gave us some fresh garden tomatoes. If we ever visit the area again, this is where we want to be! The house itself was like being at home. Roomy, comfortable, had everything we needed. I would have loved to have spent time on that beautiful porch, but it was a cold weekend. We were cozy in the house!

Owner's Response: When you are providing your home to guests the goal is to have people experience the joy and peaceful feelings that I have when I sit on the front porch and watch the cows, deer, and other wildlife stroll around the property and my sister and I are so pleased that this guest enjoyed her stay so much.

Peace and beauty that only God could design!

  • 5 of 5

The kids and I had a lovely time at your farmhouse! Jany was the most delightful kind and thoughtful and very accommodating. We loved the sunrises, sunsets, starry nights, dogs that visited, cows that kept us company, beautiful horses, the layout of the land, and perfectly appointed home! Everything was simple, sweet, and very relaxing and we will definitely try to make it back next year! Thank you for sharing your blessings with us! --The Page Family

Owner's Response: It's so gratifying to get such heartfelt feedback from our guests to say that they all had a memorable, relaxing stay in our house and it's what we constantly strive for. My sister does such an excellent job of trying to make our guests feel at home and that's a big part of providing our guests with excellent value for their time and money. You're a terrific Mom and your children are not only BEAUTIFUL but they are so well behaved, bright, intelligent, quizzical, and fearless! It's so nice to be around kids who truly love the outdoors and immersed themselves in nature the way they did. I hope you return when you have more time to explore.

Great weekend in September

  • 5 of 5

It's very peaceful and relaxing here. I was visiting Benedictine College with my daughters and this was the perfect location to use as a home base to explore the area. I will definitely stay here again if the opportunity arises.

Owner's Response: We get quite few guests who are using our house as a base while visiting students at Benedictine College in Atchison Kansas and it works really well because the college is only about 15-20 minutes drive away. Having a modern house in a quiet rural surrounding is a great combination to create a memorable, relaxing holiday.

Wonderful, peaceful stay in a great home

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to get away from life for a few days. This is a great place to do it! Clean and very comfortable. Awesome support from the host. Close to Atchison, KS where there are very interesting small museums to visit and good food in small restaurants, or just sit on the porch and read and relax. Enjoyed watching the cows wander past and listening to owls and coyotes in the distance. Wonderful time. Highly recommend it.,

Owner's Response: It's great to hear that a guest discovered the magic of finding a comfortable and modern place in the countryside to get away from life for a few days and just relax and experience life on a working farm. My sister provides an excellent service to all of our guests and it's a big reason why we consistently get such positive guest reviews.
