Why Dori Wright chose Missouri

Grandpa Isaac Newton Wright built the original home in the 1940's by cutting down trees from the farm and dragging them by horse to the home site.

We gutted his little 4-room homestead, changed the floor plan, remodeled in a rustic decor, added an attic loft/balcony for an additional sleeping area, added multiple windows for viewing the landscape, and a private study/reading area to thoroughly enjoy the solitude. You'll love it!

A special place!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO. We loved the Dry Creek Cabin!! Can't say enough wonderful things. Tucked away, but not too far away - quiet and peaceful. We were greeted within minutes of arrival by the owners who shared the beautiful history of the cabin. Special touches everywhere. Cozy and comfortable with all the amenities one would need. Very special and unique place. We hope to come back next year!!

Dry Creek Cabin - a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and felt like home. It was a great escape from all of the hustle and bustle of life. I will definitely be coming back sometime to stay. Tom and Dori's hospitality was great! The cabin truly had all of the amenities of home, and it made it so nice to have everything readily available.

Beautiful property. Very clean and well kept

  • 5 of 5

We needed a quick get away and this was it. It was quiet and calm and perfect for our young family. Smores and exploring were just what we needed. Tom and Dori were incredibly accommodating and welcoming. We loved our time.

Fantastic Cabin in a Great Location to Relax and Disconnect

  • 5 of 5

Our family felt the need for a quick getaway to disconnect and spend some quality time together. Dry Creek Cabin was the perfect place! The cabin itself is beautiful, decorated in a rustic-but-modern look, and we felt extremely comfortable there right away. The owners dropped by the night we arrived to introduce themselves and were super friendly. The location is amazing. Down a wooded road that opens into a field surrounded by forested hills, the cabin has plenty of room for outdoor activities (we kicked around a soccer ball and built a fire in the fire pit out back to roast hot dogs and marshmallows). There is also nice trail up into the hills that winds through the property. We spent a few hours in the afternoon walking and exploring. It's a long enough trail to get a workout if you want one, but easy enough that our three year old managed it without too much problem. What else can I say? Our children both loved the place. The beds were super comfortable. The shower was wonderfully warm. The coffee mugs were cute. And the barnwood-finished loft makes a perfect little reading or sleeping escape with some atmosphere. We set out to relax and disconnect for a weekend, and we were able to accomplish our goal thanks to this lovely cabin. We're already talking about coming back in the future.

Abolutely wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Tom & Dori are marvelous, and their cabin is simply perfect.

If you're looking for someplace to unwind and unplug, this is the spot for you.

No Wi-Fi, no cable, no cell phone signal. Just reconnect with nature and your significant other.

Watch the deer in the valley and see the sunrise in all God's glory and splendor.

Only 20 minutes from Osage Beach if you must dine out, but their cabin and the way they've stocked it make cooking your own meals easy and enjoyable. Just bring your groceries and you're good to go.

If you go into Osage Beach, On The Rise for breakfast and Half-Sauced BBQ for dinner are worth a stop.

Go for a walk on the trail or take pictures around the old barn, you won't be disappointed.

Talk with Tom and Dori about the family history of the cabin, and you'll appreciate it even more.

Sign the guest register and look for the "hidden dollar" clues.

Thanks so much for sharing your slice of heaven with us.

We'll definitely stay there again.
