Honeysuckle Rose is a true get-away. NO cable, satellite or phones. Just fresh country air and a cosmic view that will take your breath away. Though it is only a one bedroom , the bedroom has a king size bed and also twin bed. The kitchen is small but complete with all you need to have breakfast in bed, a great lunch or dinner simple or elegant. Cookware, dishes, wine glasses with decanter, linen with a spark of crystal to add that special touch. The living room has a huge sectional plus a queen sofa bed so bring the family or some special friends.With a large TV with 100's of DVD movies to select from are available. The dining area is spacious and comfortable. The patio includes a table and chairs for 4, fire pit and BBQ grill.
One of the many advantages of being located outside of town is the lack of light pollution. The Star Gazing is spectacular!
This is a great location for the perfect romantic getaway. Close to many pristine and quiet conservations sites that include rivers, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, birdwatching, and just clean family fun. Motorcycle-rs are always welcomed.

Just north of Arcadia the town of Pilot Knob hosts a Civil War Museum on an actual Battle site with a spectacular reenactment of the Battle of Pilot Knob every 3 years. This years battle is Sept 27-28, the 150th anniversary. There are many conservation sites, parks and rivers including Elephant Rocks State Park, Johnson Shut-ins, Mill Stream Gardens, St Francis River, and the Black River just to name a few. There are antique shops, thrift stores and a must see, is The Plunder Palace.

You can also check out the Whistle Junction Museum, an old train station with a real caboose, Ursuline Academy, and so many others. If you are looking for sporting supplies, check out Arcadia Sporting Goods, they have over 1500 guns on display, Even if you are not looking for sporting goods, I recommend stopping by.

There are several small towns with 30-40 min drive with even more shops and attractions.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Garland was born and raised in this area with family history that goes back several generations. His great grand father started the first telephone company in St Francis County and owned the local newspaper from 1913-1937. His Grand Dad was a well respected man that contributed to the Annapolis Community for more than 50 years, which now is creating a walking park in his memory. Donna is from Boston, Massachusetts area where they met 20 plus years ago while working on the BIG DIG, which was at that time the largest construction site in the USA. In 1998, motivated by a more simple, slower life style and the desire to spend more time with his daughter, we moved from the Boston area to Roselle, Missouri.

Why the Owner Chose Fredericktown, MO, USA:
We were in the area visiting family and on our way back to the airport we saw this piece of property was for sale and decided this would be perfect.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Again we are close to many wonderful conservations sites, wineries, rivers, and as we stated before the stars will take your breath every now and again you can see things in the sky that just aren't explainable.
