What a wonderful place to stay and the nicest people you will ever meet. We stayed two nights in the Lilly of the Nile room and had an amazing time walking around the farm and relaxing. Julia and her husband were wonderful hosts, we immediately felt welcomed. The breakfast was delicious! Stuffed french toast, crepes, fresh fruit and farm fresh...

What a jewel. Don't be fooled by the location. It is tucked away, but worth the effort to locate. The rooms were amazing; the view wonderful of a lake with ducks and horses adding to the setting. The breakfast was amazing and the hostess loves what she is doing. A perfect spot for a getaway.

Spent last Sat. night at Julia's Shady Rest and had an absolutely wonderful Girls Weekend. The accommodations in the cabin were excellent; the breakfast was fabulous; and the country setting is wonderful. Even the horses came up to the deck to visit! Julia's is located in the heart of one of Missouri's Winery Trails. We visited several local vineyards; shopped...

My husband and I spent two lovely days in the cabin at Julia's on our honeymoon. This place is off the beaten path, and well worth the drive. Julia is a fantastic host who made us feel at home, and her breakfasts were amazing! We loved having three horses right outside our cabin, which we could watch from the windows...

My husband and I came here for an anniversary getaway and couldn't have asked for a better experience! It feels like a retreat right out of a magazine!

Stayed 3 nights in late June 2013. A beautiful log home on a quiet blacktop just a little south of Lexington. Sits back on a nicely wooded acreage, features a couple rooms in the main house and a very nice, stand- alone, private retreat that is so well equipped that it could be a full time home. If you prefer...

Julia's Shady Rest is a little hard to find, but well worth the effort. Exceptional lodging with 6 star breakfasts along with an evening snack of hot fresh apple pie with ice cream!! Extremely hospitable host and hostess. Sorry we had to leave.

Thank Heiselmom
