Owner info

About the owner: My name is Crystal. I live on a farm with my husband, Gerald and son, Clayton. I am slightly addicted to horses and love working with animals. I have stock dogs that help me with most everything I do on the farm. We have cattle, goats and a few chickens.

Why the Owner Chose Steelville:
We bought this piece of property with a lovely home on it from the family of a man named Sam Murphy because it joined our farm and we thought it would be a good place to try the vacation rental business. It went so well that we have since built two more cabins on the same property. We love meeting new people and sharing some of the great experiences of country living with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
There are several short trails for walking on the property and abundant wildlife in the area. The covered porch, complete with a table and comfortable chairs is a great place to gather and enjoy some fresh air. The fire pit out back (firewood included) is the place to be once the sun goes down. If you are looking for a relaxing retreat in the country, you've found it in the Sassafras cabin.
