Marceline Alumni Weekend 5/2019
I returned to Marceline with my brother and our wives to participate in the Marceline High School Alumni weekend activities. Circle O was a perfect place to stay, close to Marceline. It was a quiet and serene place to reflect on the time with classmates. We were treated to a cast of birds, geese landing on the pond and squirrels for our enjoyment. With that experience it is not a wonder that Walt Disney got the inspiration for his cast of characters while sitting under the Dreaming Tree in nearby Marceline.
I would recommend Circle O to anyone interested in visiting north central Missouri for a restful retreat in the country. It is a perfect layout for family and friends, well-appointed and decorated impeccably
Sewing Retreat Week
Our group of four friends had an awesome experience at this remote cabin. Even with all the rain (including lots of thunder and lightning), we enjoyed the secluded space and beautiful cabin. The cabin had great space and so well stocked with great thoughts in decorations. The Deer, geese, and rabbits kept us company as well as the frogs serenading us. We traveled to Quilt Shops in Marceline, Hamilton, Johnsport, and Chillicothe --so we enjoyed being in the area tremendously. Thanks for sharing your beautiful Cabin and land with us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a great experience and a relaxing getaway. The cabin was wonderful and stocked with many essentials. We enjoyed getting away and being in the country. Spent most of the days fishing on the pond and the Marceline reservoir nearby. One day we even enjoyed some of the yard games outside that the owners supplied. Overall, great relaxing trip. Was definitely what my family needed!
It was amazing and fun filled. With the convenience of internet Wi-Fi but also the tranquility.
While some on vacation can be free from work others are unable to be like with my job. So the convenience of internet was exceptionally nice for emails and such. The outdoors was lovely and so were the trails along with the yard games. Be prepared for a country lifestyle with wild life and all the ticks and things of nature. If you like quiet country life this is the beat. Its located away from the hustle of normal city life but within 10 miles or less of the nearest city for food, and immenities you may need. Meanwhile the cabin presents all the basics of a normal life and things you may require. Its nice having a vacation stay which is so much like your own home and equipped with many items you use on a personal basis. There was nothing I needed which was not available. This cabin provided beautiful sunrises with breakfast on the deck and gorgeous sunsets on the front porch overlooking the pond below.
The rules of canines being welcomed was what I was excited about. Not to many folks would want to leave their companion at a sitters or boarding place while on vacation and here you may bring along!! My European Great Dane loved the outdoors and the trails, by day two he was exhausted.
The place was clean and offered no signs of other guest! Much more pleasing than the best hotel! But remember no noises which you would expect from a hotel!
Honestly I give this place 5 stars!!!
This holiday weekend stay was perfect!! Probably one of our favorites! The cabin was beautiful, and had everything we needed! We came in with groceries and never had to leave the property to get anything. We also loved how you considered pets and had old towels and bowls for them (they loved that pond so much!).
When I booked this property, I honestly didn't know the history of the town. I was just searching for a rural vacation getaway. After I booked, I took the time to read about the town. Wow!! We arrived early on Friday to start our trip in the town of Marceline. We visited the Walt Disney museum, had coffee at Cafe Marceline, walked Main Street, saw the Coca-Cola wall, went grocery shopping, and arrived just around 3pm at Circle O. We knew we had booked an amazing place, when everyone in town had nothing but great things to say about the lodge! By the way, I had never met so many nice folks, than in Marceline!
The lodge is just 9 mins from town! Very private, gorgeous gravel drive, surrounded by hiking trails. The large pond was perfect! We brought our two kayaks and putted around on it most of the day Saturday. In the afternoon, we headed back to town and visited the Walt Disney Farm and stopped back on Main Street to get a photo of the Uptown Theatre. We got really lucky there! The owner was in the building and invited us in for a private tour!
We headed back to the lodge for more pond time, relaxation, and ended our evening with hotdogs and smores over the firepit...THANK YOU for the cut wood!
So much thought has gone in to this place for your guests, and we thank you! Everything from kitchen items, extra linens, to extra toiletries...oh and not to forget the tons of board games in the laundry room!!! Thank you so much for opening your getaway up to us! We signed your guest book, and enjoyed reading all of the books and literature you had there! We can't wait to come back!!!
Jamie, Mel and our girls Haley & Kemah!
Wonderful relaxing stay!
We all had a wonderful time at your cabin. So beautiful and peaceful. It was a bit chilly so the bonfire was a huge lifesaver with all the wood you provided. It was perfect! We had a lot of fun target practicing as well. Your hospitality is outstanding!!! Thanks again!!
Thank you Jennifer for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed the peace and quiet and we hope you will return for another peaceful stay and hope the weather collaborates.
