Our home sits on top of a quiet and secluded hill surrounded by 36 acres of forest and pasture. You will enjoy the spacious home with 4 bedrooms, a hot tub, dry sauna and in-ground pool (seasonal). The property also contains a large 3 stall horse stable with a private bunkhouse that can also serve as a spare bedroom. Sip your morning coffee on the wrap around deck and enjoy the peaceful sounds of the Ozarks as it wakes up, gather around the unique circle fireplace on cool nights, relax in the pool or hot tub and marvel as you sit under a star-lit sky on a clear summer night in an open field around a bonfire. Bring your horses and ride on the property, enjoy one of the local surrounding lakes or just relax and get away from it all. Perfect for weekends away with friends and family or stay longer and take in all that the Ozarks has to offer. Also perfect for yoga and writer's retreats. Enjoy some quiet solitude, relax, unwind and take a deep breathe of fresh, country air. You deserve it!

About Amy Gomme
This farmstead has been in our family since the 70s. It has seen four children raised and many pets and livestock nurtured on its acreage. It has entertained both foreigners and locals with good country fun enjoying hot summers spent pool side and cold winters snuggled up around the fireplace or in the hot tub. All four children grew up in the community and graduated from the local school. We all now live in or around Springfield.
Amy Gomme purchased this House in 1972
Why Amy Gomme chose Polk County
This property was purchased by our parents in the 70s and has everything you would want out of quiet country living with a few extra luxuries. We love to camp out under the clear night skies or play board games around the handmade table. Many years we spent riding and training horses that once lived on the acreage. It is rural but still only a 15 min drive to town to stock up on necessities. It is a beautiful place to make lasting memories with family and friends.
What makes this House unique
There is nothing better than waking to a cup of coffee and listening to the sounds of the Ozarks on the deck. This place is the definition of solitude and you will enjoy lazy, country days pool side or exploring the surrounding acreage. You will fall in love with the 360 degree fireplace and sunken living room with lots of quiet places to sneak away. Use the expanse of the stables to host a wedding, family reunion or bring your own horses. You and your horses will benefit from the beautiful and safe surroundings. Please note you use all facilities including pool, sauna, and hot tub at your own risk.

Fantastic seclusion for annual ladies weekend
The 5 of us enjoyed our stay thoroughly. We try to go somewhere different every year and this was a winner! The description and additional results of the rental was delivered as promised. Very happy with our stay.
PEACE & QUIET!!!
My wife and I absolutely loved our time at the Stone Horse! Peace, quiet sum it up perfectly. This is a perfect place to completely unplug, sit back and relax and enjoy some quality time with family/loved ones.
Loved our stay here! Pool was so fun for all of us, especially the kids. Came down for a wedding & it was the perfect lodging for us!
Peaceful, tranquil, and relaxing!
Great place for a relaxing getaway with friends. Secluded and quiet. Spending our days at the pool and nights by the fire pit. Couldn't ask for a better weekend. We will definitely be back!
Awesome secluded property with plenty to do even when the kids realize there is no wifi.
Would stay here again on the next fishing floating trip.
Thank you for staying with us. So glad you had a good time and your kids were able to disconnect for a few days!
Excellent Location and Amazing Amenities.
This home is perfectly located. Secluded and nestled off the main road for complete privacy. Our Family of 6 plus our local family of 4 enjoyed the home for the week. Plenty of bedrooms and space for all to spread out and relax. We slipped up to the local Walmart grabbed some food to stock the fridge for the week other than that we did not have a reason to leave. Waking up to peaceful surroundings, sipping coffee on several different outside locations was super relaxing. Wrap around porch and Pool deck offered ample space for our family to enjoy one another. The house was stocked full with all the necessary items you could wish for. We traveled 18 hours to get to the home and it was a blessing not to have to worry about soap, towels, shampoo etc. even down to paper towels and toilet tissue. The Owners really thought of everything. There were board games and some DVD's to watch. But, we spent most of the time in the gorgeous pool, hot tub and spa. A grill is provided outside so we took full advantage of it several nights. We were able to keep all the laundry done as there is a Washer and Dryer with ample detergent and softener. We loved the house and dreamed of purchasing it although it was not for sale. We settled in nicely. I loved looking out the kitchen window over the sink each morning. It was a great start to the day. My teenage girls would have liked there to be Wifi or Cable or Satellite but we managed just fine without. Att cell service is a bit sketchy while inside the house but outside did not seem to be a problem. Our only regret was we had to leave. Wish we had booked it for two weeks. Special Thanks to the owners for welcoming us upon arrival and showing us around. They were also available when we reached out with a few questions during our stay. That was super helpful. Beautiful home and amenities. We will definitely rent again. My Sister-in-law and her husband live in the area and plan to rent it for a girls weekend. Yes its that relaxing. Thanks Amy and John for wonderful vacation. Oh and we enjoyed the new fire pit it was a great addition.
This homestead sits in the quiet farming community of Halfway. The home has all the basic amenities you would want. The town of Bolivar sits 10 miles west of the village of Halfway and includes an array of shopping and dining experiences but still gives you the feel of small town America. Buffalo sits 10 miles east of Halfway and has similar amenities to Bolivar. Pomme De Terre Lake sits approximately 23 miles to the north where you can swim, boat and fish. Springfield sits about 30 miles south of the property and offers a solid days worth of entertainment in a medium sized city.
