About Keith & Benka
For us hospitality is a labor of love. Come join us and let us introduce you to this spectacular part of the world, where we celebrate every day of our lives. We like spoiling people and revealing secrets of cozy country living. It's our pleasure to have you comfortably tucked away while unwinding and recharging in our little retreat. We guarantee we'll do our best to exceed your expectations. Yes, we take our hosting very seriously and cutting corners is not our style. In fact, our ideas are constantly being borrowed by other hosts who lack what we have in abundance: experience, expertise and imagination. After being guests in +130 countries, we're well qualified to provide highly personalized hospitality you'll fondly remember for years to come. Benka is an author holding several Guinness World Records in adventure traveling and Keith works as a foreign adviser.
Why Keith & Benka chose Park Hills
Many have had dreams since their youth of spending the night in a tipi. But for one reason or another (distance, time, lack of comfort) its never been achieved. The Magic Tipi Retreat allows guests to make their dreams come true in a luxurious yet rustic setting, not far from all the conveniences of city life.
What makes this Cabin unique
Within in minutes of the Magic Tipi Resort there are a multitude of State Parks, Conservation Areas and thousands of acres of National Forest land to explore. The geologically unique St. Francois Mountains are the oldest in North America, dating to 1.485 BILLION years ago. Taum Sauk Mountain, Missouri's highest point, is a short drive south, with many shut-ins and other formations scattered around the area.

Great way to relax and tune out
We enjoyed our stay at the tipi. The quiet, one on one time was awesome.
My only disappointment with the listing was the gas fireplace/pit was located in the tipi, which could be great in cool/cold weather, but of no use to us inside in this heat.
The gas fireplace has it's function in the tipi year around. Aside from knocking the chill off, it helps keep out the rain when needed. And our guests are crazy about the real fire outside in a stone fire pit, 5 yards from the tipi. Especially since it comes with free firewood, starting kit, s'mores and an outstanding view on the Tipi glowing in the dark.
Relaxing Anniversary get-a-way!
we had an amazing and relaxing time! We cooked all our meals on-site, hiked the trails, and simply enjoyed each other and relaxed. Everything was thought about and it was just easy. The tipi is a wonderful and unique stay.
We also enjoyed meeting and talking with Benka. She is so knowledgeable and just FUN. We plan to visit again!
Amazingly unique, comfortable, and an experience we will cherish. Keith and Benka have thought of everything to make your stay wonderful! We loved it and can’t wait to go back!
Warmly welcome any time.
