Wonderful getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best experience! Believe me when I say the pictures don't do this place justice! It's absolutely an amazing place!

My family and I just wanted a break from the hussle and bussle of our everyday lives and this couldn't have been more perfect! Although, it does have all of the comforts of home with internet and Direct TV. Country Haven is a little slice of heaven with its gorgeous views and beautiful landscaping and Sheila and Don are just the most amazing people! They are so warm and inviting. Just the nicest people you're ever going to meet. Whether it be the yummy fresh baked bread, borrowing mayo, or Sheila sharing her amazing fresh baked peach cobbler you can tell they just love what they do. You feel like you've known them your whole life! And who could forget about the pups! J-Dub, Fancy, Sipsy, Iggey, and Snook the cat! They, too, were awesome.

Brayden, our 8 year old son, absolutely loved it on the farm. He especially loved the pool, feeding the koi, and hanging out with Sheila and the furbabies! Even my husband couldn't resist the furbabies! He would stand on our porch and whistle at your porch for J-Dub and if the others came over it was an added bonus!

This was an amazing mini vacation. We can't thank you enough for the wonderful memories we took with us. I only wish we could've stayed longer! But, we will DEFINITELY be back! As a matter of fact just hold labor day weekend for us because we'll be there!

Best Vacation Property!!

  • 5 of 5

Sheila and Don were perfect hosts!! This house is perfectly maintained and extremely clean! Right away Sheila met us at the door with JDub, the sweetest farm dog, and took us for a tour of the house. Inside the house was a fresh baked loaf of bread and butter, such a nice touch! The grounds around the home, the koi pond, private pool and scenic views are all there for your enjoyment. Some of the highlights of our week included morning walks with JDub and doing farm chores with Sheila, which the kids loved. We visited many of the local attractions but were happy to return to a nice pool and home to relax in. The beds were very comfortable and all of the furnishings made our stay feel very much like home. We will be back VERY soon!!!

Great Place For A Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from our vacation, and we are already talking about visiting again. What a wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature. The view from the porch was amazing! The house was clean and beautiful, and we enjoyed our stay very much.

Sheila and Don are such wonderful people. They made us feel like we had known them for a long time. Their own house is close to the cabin, but we had a lot of privacy. We all enjoyed swimming in the pool and playing with the animals. The kids still talk a lot about how much they miss J-Dub! Thank you for being such great hosts, we look forward to seeing you again!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin! We visited over the Easter Holiday and were welcomed into Sheila and Don's family get together!! They made us feel as though we were family! The cabin is the perfect size for a family of five. The kids were enchanted and so were we! We definitely plan to visit again if they'll have us!

Really a Home Away

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to the Country Haven Lodge was even better than the first, mostly because we had been looking forward so much to the feelings and special moments of our first trip. Arriving late to find Sheila's fresh bread still steaming on the counter, being greeted by our old friend, the farm dog, J-Dub, visiting with all of the friendly cows on the farm, walking down the farm roads in complete peace and quiet and isolation. All of it was just like before, only better, because it felt like home. Our highlight was spreading a quilt out on the grass outside the pasture with all the inquisitive heifers and drinking wine and eating snacks we had brought, just relishing the peace and idyllic perfection of the property. Seeing Don and Sheila again was wonderful. Their house is close, and they are around, but you never feel like they interact more than they sense you want to. We don't mind however, they are such warm, thoughtful, and friendly hosts. It is hard to leave, but I know we will be back.

If you want peace and quiet, serenity, beautiful views, and time to yourself this lodge is for you! This little piece of heaven is set in the rolling hills of the Ozarks near Macks Creek, MO. The cabin sits on top of a hill on our 400 acre farm overlooking bottom fields and country scenery. You can have all this and still be within 30 minutes of the lake, golf courses, outlet shopping, water parks, State Parks and more. (Check our web site for more information on the lodge and surrounding attractions.) Come enjoy the large koi pond, the numerous flower beds, the wrap-around porch with swing. Enjoy watching the wildlife that inhabit the farm.

Feel free to hike the 400 acres and explore the creeks, search for wild flowers and just enjoy nature! If you are a camera buff you are in for a treat! Beautiful misty morning sunrises and colorful sunsets, skittish wildlife and lots of flowers both wild and in gardens provide limitless subjects for your artistic eye. Honeymooning? What better place to spend that special time together than in the quiet of these scenic hills.

The lodge is fully modern. The 2 upstairs bedrooms have king sized beds, lofted pine ceilings and ceiling fans. The bath with shower is downstairs. There is a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, stove, microwave and ice maker. The living room has a 42' TV with DirecTV with DVR and a hide-a-bed in the sofa.

Go to our website for more information and to book your stay. You must book from our web site not on the Home Away page.
