Overview

About the property

Come Relax, Refresh, Retreat In A Quaint, Stone Cottage On Our Working Farm!

Our hand-built stone cottage is rustic, simple, straight-forward, and perfect for those seeking a stress-free getaway from city living! With 4 beds and 1 bathroom, we can comfortably accommodate 4 people, however, for families or groups that don't mind close quarters, we have two cots, so we can adapt to six people in a pinch. (Keep in mind that this is a former hunting cabin - very comfortable, but not luxurious.)

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot accommodate animals inside the Cottage because so many of my guests have allergies.

A spacious kitchen allows you to create custom meals – be warned - it has a lower than normal ceiling (about 7'.) The loft is accessed by a steep, narrow, low-clearance stairway that can be difficult for small children, but there is a "kiddie gate" for use to prevent little ones from climbing unexpectedly. There are two steps up into both the bathroom and kitchen. The bathroom has a shower – no tub.

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.

Ask about our discount for clergy retreats and active military personnel. We are located just off of I-44 south and east of Carthage – due east of Joplin, with easy access to area attractions (complete directions will be given after booking. )

SOME RECENT REVIEWS:

We loved being at this home on the range! We were two couples and appreciated the cabin and the surroundings. Even the cat kept close watch on us. Merre baked fresh bread for us and we had wonderful farm fresh eggs for breakfast. Lots of fun for all of us and we all slept well too!

What a wonderful, peaceful getaway!

California - April, 2016

Merre was so sweet. We loved the country setting. We walked the land, pet the horses, and fell in love with Jill the cat. The cottage was cozy and clean. Missouri - March 2016

We were looking for a relaxing place where we could enjoy family time, and that was exactly what we found. Merre was very accommodating; there was homemade bread and a friendly outdoor cat waiting for us upon arrival! The neighborhood was quiet and a close drive to town, but also felt like an oasis with the little cottage yard where you could hang clothes out to dry, watch the horses and goats, and enjoy the sunset and sunrise. Thank you for having us! Texas - March 2016

As always, a delightful trip. The Wired Women have been spoiled by Merre. It's the special touches that make it so unique and quaint. She makes us feel like we have known her forever. The fire pit was a treat. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Truly, The Wired Women !! ♡♡♡

Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas - March 2016

This little cottage was the most wonderful piece of of Missouri. The hostess was the most gracious person I have had the pleasure of meeting. The cottage was exactly what my family needed just at the perfect time. It was clean and inviting, with a full kitchen. My kids loved being able to run and play in the big country yard. The host was always available but never intrusive. I would choose to stay ONLY here next time I am in Missouri! Germany - February 2016

What a very sweet and fun little treasure this cottage is! Don't miss the chance to stay here if you're in the area, even for a night, as we were on our cross country trip. We adored driving in and parking between the big red barn and the little matching cottage, greeted by two super friendly kitties and hearing the goats nearby. We had a lovely evening watching a movie and admiring the beautifully, carefully decorated interior, before waking up to a magical fog-filled morning before we took our coffee out to the yard to explore. A dog herded the goats for a visit before we got to go out and offer the horses a provided-treat in their pasture. Beautiful rolling hills, lovely landscaping around the cottage, a great outdoor patio for working or to relax. Plenty of room upstairs and downstairs for sleeping and making oneself at home, even though it is not a huge place. Indiana - Nov 2015

About Merre Putnam

I love: creating and designing things, learning, gardening, reading, anything having to do with off the beaten path adventure, fun, uniqueness, and bargains. Re-purposing things and working with people is energizing to me, but the best is hanging out with our 8 children (4 original and 4 spouses) and eight grandchildren. I enjoy traveling and staying with other Airbnb hosts.

Merre Putnam purchased this cottage in 1998

The cottage was simply charming. Both inside and out are obviously well taken care of. Recommended.

  • 5 of 5

Merre was quite helpful. Our stay was perfect from beginning to end. The cottage was clean and welcoming. It didn't matter what side of the cottage we were on, it was always a perfect view. It wouldn't surprise me if we made a trip to Carthage again just to stay here for a longer time. Thanks Merre!

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, I had to be out of town when Ed and Andi were here and did not get to meet them in person. But their warmth, kindness, appreciation, and thoughtfulness came through in Andi's prompt communications; and they left the Cottage very clean and tidy! I hope to have the privilege of having them back and can highly recommend them to other hosts. If I could have given them ten stars, I surely would have!

Review of our stay at Cottage November 2017

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the cottage for five nights in late November 2017. We had a great time and very much enjoyed the stay. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed walking in the yard and watching the horses, goats, and dogs. Jill, the cat, was our constant companion while we were outside and would have been our companion inside the cottage if we had let her enter. The cottage was very clean and the wall mounted gas space heater kept the cottage warm even on the nights that it got below freezing. We had two electric space heaters to supply supplemental heat if we had needed them. We did not need them except in the bathroom early in the morning. The steps to the two beds in the loft are very steep and we both have knee problems and both usually make several trips to the restroom at night so we chose to utilize the twin day beds on the main floor. The day beds were comfortable and we slept well. Merre and her daughter Abi were great hosts. We would stay here again.

Lovely Weekend!

  • 4 of 5

Like many others our family was looking for a quiet weekend away. The cottage definitely delivered! We were able to enjoy a nice fire, good grilled food, and some amazing stargazing for my daughter. Can't see those constellations in the city. Ms. Mere's cookies were also a very welcoming touch. We will totally be back - Holm Family

Nice cottage surrounded by flowers and nature.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a really nice getaway. We had fun being in nature and enjoying the animals. The cottage had everything we needed. A really good location outside of Carthage but still close to town.
