2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
Carthage, Missouri
Relax, refresh, retreat in our quaint turn-of-the-20th century 900 sq ft stone cottage on a working farm with full amenities and quiet country peace, 2 miles off I-44 near Joplin in SW MO, and less than two hours from Kansas City, Tulsa, NW Arkansas, Springfield, and Branson. The Cottage living room features a daybed with trundle underneath that sleeps two; and the loft has two twin beds with ample space for two cots or airbeds. The fully equipped kitchen has a table that seats 4 - 6, and the small, efficient galley bathroom has a shower (no tub.)

Even though we didn't stay long, this cute Cottage Retreat was just perfect. My best friend and I needed some girlfriend time and time away from everyday work and hustle and bustle. This place was perfect. Loved the scenery, walking around the trails, interacting with the animals and the peace and quiet that surrounded us. The only thing we could...

Management response:

Karen - it was a delight to host you and Michelle! Thanks for your kind words, and for leaving everything so neat and tidy - you are most welcome back any time! Best, Merre

We deeply appreciate John and Merre's kindness, hospitality, and wonderful care. Their thoughtful gestures of welcoming us with cookies and delicious muffins was so appreciated. Also, the breakfast was delicious, as well. A...

We stayed at the cottage for 3 days. The cottage is well presented and very comfortable. The garden is great to relax in, especially under a large shady tree on a hot summers days. The goats, especially the kids are very entertaining to watch and listen to. John and Merre are great hosts and the food that Merre provided was...

About the neighbourhood
I am located near a wide variety of interesting family attractions as well as adventures for art buffs. I have plentiful timber for seasonal deer and turkey hunting on the property (for an additional charge).

A most interesting, fun time to visit The Cottage is during our annual spring kidding season when the fields are literally 'jumping' with baby goats. Normally kidding occurs during May and June.

In mid-October, Carthage hosts one of the top 20 Missouri gatherings - the Maple Leaf Festival:
'a tradition for over 41 years, this week-long celebration offers what is considered one of Missouri's largest parades followed by a variety of special events including more than 80 craft booths and food vendors.'
