Peace and quiet. Solitude on the St. Francis is a lovely log cabin set in the woods. It is approximately ten miles north of Sam A. Baker State Park in an isolated area. The cabin sits on 260 acres that border the St. Francis River. The St. Francis is easily accessible (a quick two minute walk from the cabin) and is an excellent fishing, swimming and floating river. This log cabin has a master bedroom with a queen size bed, a loft with a full size mattress and a downstairs semi-private bedroom with a full size log bed. Solitude is all electric. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, stove-top burners, crock pot, drip coffee maker, toaster, pots & pans, dishes and utensils. There is one bathroom and a walk-in shower. Solitude is equipped with central heat and air a land line telephone and satelite TV with dvd. The very cold Seabaugh Spring sits in front of the cabin and flows into a small pond and creek that leads into the St. Francis. Bring your inner tubes and swim gear and spend the day at the river. There is also a BBQ grill in front of the cabin and a fire pit for bonfires. There are two miles of hiking trails and a two acre fishing pond on the property. If you are looking for a getaway from civilization, this is the place.

Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: Mike Fleming became the concessionaire at Sam A. Baker State Park in 1996. He soon began looking for property on the St. Francis River to erect a log cabin, a dream long held as a young man growing up in Kansas City. He and his future wife Jody attended the Great Lakes School of Log Building in Ely, Minnesota. The cabin they helped build was purchased and shipped via log truck to this very special spot where it was reassembled. Since then, a full kitchen and bedroom have been added.
Why the Owner Chose Des Arc, MO, USA:
Mike heard about this beautiful property in 1997. His first hike into this remote spot was love at first sight. Locals tell of the history of Seabaugh Spring, (located in front of the cabin), a well-known resting spot along the hilly and arduous journey to Fredericktown.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The 260 acres is an extremely isolated area teeming with Missouri wildlife including deer, turkey, bald eagles, turkey vultures, owls, coyotes, skunks, bobcats, raccoons, opossum and yes, snakes. Occasionally, some wildlife can be sighted from the cabin's porch. Swimming, fishing, canoeing, moderately strenuous hiking trails and bird watching are some of the activities you can enjoy.
