"We called on a Friday afternoon for a last minute rental. The owner got us setup and ready to go even though we were so last minute. I explained to the owner that my wife & I needed a break with our kids as we had a close family pass away very recently. She told me everything would be ready when we got there and the reservation went VERY smoothly, although last minute. NICE!
We arrived and the cabin was EXACTLY as described and then some! My wife couldn't get over how CLEAN the cabin was and how wonderful it smelled. The decorations were great and you really got the feeling you were in the woods. My 2 boys kept going from room to room, exploring, and yelling about what they had seen/found while looking around. They had a blast just exploring the cabin and the grounds. The owners have various board games/toys under the tv in the cabinet - which the boys loved. The grounds are well kept.
We took full advantage of the fire pit and made smores and roasted marshmallows each night - the kids loved it. The linens and towels were great. The beds were very comfortable. The tv worked great and so did the hot water and the heat. The fireplace in the living room is great for taking the edge off the chill in the morning (it's electric..not wood - but very nice..). The kitchen has everything you need - zero complaints there for sure.
My family had a great time exploring the area (from Missouri but not been to Shell Knob before..) - Roaring River state park was great with lots of trails. We watched the trout fisherman fish and just had a great time feeding the fish at the hatchery.
The best part, Sarah, the owner, had a beautiful card waiting on my wife when we got there wishing her to 'find some inner peace this weekend'. How thoughtful, my wife teared up reading it as it was her family member we had lost recently.
I truly can't say enough about this place - the 100 times I got asked by my boys, 'when are we coming back..' tells me they enjoyed it too! I would stay here again in a heartbeat. No issues, perfect stay, great owner and customer service. For the money, one of the best values I've experienced.

"Loved your place and the neighborhood. The apartment is so clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. Enjoyed the back patio and walks around the neighborhood. Loved nearby Kaldi's for breakfast and The Oyster Bar for dinner. The location is so perfect, close to everything we wanted to do while we were in St. Louis. Thanks for a great stay!"

"I have been going to Bennett for over 30 years and this is without a doubt the nicest cabin and best value we have found. It is super clean and appeared to be recently built. It has everything you need from a BBQ grill, Covered deck w/ Tiki torches, big fire pit, and walk out basement. Inside there is a cool old wood burning stove, full appliances including fridge, stove, coffee maker, washer/dryer and even cable TV. The house was even stocked with pots and pans, paper towels, TP and coffee filters etc. We went with two families and it is big enough that you have some privacy and plenty of beds to sleep everyone. I'd imagine if you used the air mattresses we saw stored in the basement you could comfortably have a really big group there as it is very spacious. The family that rents the house is local and very accessible/responsive if you have any questions or need anything (and incredibly nice people to boot!). Quit searching and get a reservation for this place before the secret is out! Just please don't pick a weekend we aren't going down because my girlfriend said she won't stay anywhere else again ;)"

"This estate is magnificent and offers everything you can imagine needing for a business retreat, and more! The owner Maureen is wonderful to work with and helped us plan the perfect business retreat, including planning catering services for all of our meals. Everyone had their own room but there are a lot of community gathering spaces too - the upstairs library, the great room/dining room, theater, conference room, basketball court/game room.
There are also a lot of televisions for presentations, especially the really large screen in the theater. We really enjoyed our retreat and plan to return!"
