Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 15

Newly remodeled, Stirling Cottage is the bigger "sister" property across the road from the Cottage at Ozark Highlands Farm and a perfect location for family reunions, personal or small group retreats and celebrations of all kinds. Stirling is a 1930's -era hand-built stone and wood farmhouse, with five bedrooms, and 2 1/2 bathrooms (another full bath is being planned.}

"Twigs" is the master bedroom, with king-size bed, chaise lounge, whimsical decor, and views of our east fields.

"Vintage" offers two antique double beds and decor with four large windows showcasing stunning sunsets.

"Maps" and "Blooms" are two dormitory -style bedrooms on the second floor with half-bath.

"Maps," a room the guys will like, is decorated with artifacts and antiques and has three twin beds (one is X-long) ; while "Blooms" for the gals, is decorated with bright colors, floral fabrics, and wicker. It has four twin beds.

The "Sunroom" is the smallest bedroom with windows embracing two whole walls. It is filled with cheery light and peaceful ambiance. A comfortable air bed allows two people to enjoy this sunny room.

Stirling is situated on 60 beautiful, serene, stress-reducing acres offering hiking, nature-watching, playing in our cool, refreshing creek, or just sitting on the deck enjoying the sights and sounds of the country. Some camping is also permitted on the grounds for an additional charge. PLEASE NOTE: I cannot accommodate animals indoors because so many of my guests have allergies.

I love to host family reunions, getaway and craft retreats, birthday parties, anniversaries, and events of all kinds! Please contact me for specific pricing.

(Ask about our discount for clergy retreats and active military personnel.)

About Merre Putnam

I love: playing games with children (and adults); creating, repurposing, and designing things; learning; gardening; reading; anything having to do with off the beaten path adventure; fun; uniqueness; and bargains. It is a huge delight to offer a place where people can decompress from life's demands, quiet themselves, and find true relaxation and peace. Helping 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 farmhouse in 2014

Why Merre Putnam chose Carthage

Many of my guests have found it so difficult to get off the "fast track", be kind to themselves, and just be in a peaceful, beautiful, quiet place where they don't have to "do" anything.

Stirling is such a place and I love providing it for people to rest, recharge, and restore.

Wonderful time with the family. The house and ammeneties were very comfortable.

Had a wonderful time with my family at Stirling. The children enjoyed the chickens and playing in the leaves. The piano was a hit. Did miss having a tv to watch movies.

Stirling is a very beautiful relaxing country cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much! Merre and her daughter made sure we had everything we needed for our family reunion. Abi made sure we were completely settled and was only a phone call away if we needed anything! The house was completely stocked, cozy, and comfortable! Our family enjoyed playing with the kittens and chickens and watching the cows graze. We felt like we had our slice of a ranch for a few days. The kids enjoyed running and playing In the grass as the adults enjoyed the morning view and sipping coffee on the beautiful deck. We would love to meet at Stirling cottage again for our next family reunion.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately I had to be out of town when Nicole and her family were at Stirling, so I didn't get to meet them, but heard great comments from my daughter; as well as from my friend who cleans for me when I am gone. They left things in great shape, followed our working farm "rules" very well; and Nicole is a consistent, thorough communicator. I would not hesitate to have them again and can certainly recommend them to other hosts!
