About the property

Your own private retreat on a 70 acre wooded property. Sleeps five comfortably.

**INTERNET AVAILABLE MAR 2017!!** This secluded country cottage is located approximately 30 miles south of the center of Hermann, with many attractions close by. The home is back in the woods, with a scenic 3.5 acre pond located right outside your door. The pond is stocked with fish just waiting to bite! The property is designated as a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat as well as a Monarch Waystation.

Your cozy cabin includes a large eating/dining area with a dining room table as well as a bar and four stools. There are gorgeous hardwood floors throughout. The full service kitchen includes a refrigerator/freezer, electric stove, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker. Many pantry staples are provided. The master bedroom includes a queen size bed with a new form fitting foam mattress. The guest room has a bunk bed with a double mattress on the bottom and a twin on the top. There is a sunny patio area, as well as a large porch for your relaxation. There are plenty of books, both for children and adults, as well as a variety of games to enjoy.

The home has both central air conditioning and heating for your comfort, as well as a large wood stove, with firewood provided.

The house has three sliding glass doors that open onto a porch with a beckoning view of the pond. There is over a mile of trails through the woods for your hiking pleasure. Wildlife is abundant throughout the property, including wild turkeys, hawks, deer, and bunnies. There is a gas grill on the patio. In addition, there is a fire ring down by the pond so that you can make authentic S'mores or gaze at the stars. The owners are located on the seventy acre site to make sure that your needs are taken care of. Attractions located within 20 miles include restaurants, wineries, antiquing, caving, hiking, and rafting. Hermann, Cuba, Leasburg, Steelville, St. James and Rolla are all a reasonable distance away.

About Alice Martin

We were weekenders for many years, but finally decided to build our dream home on the property in 2008. Mark is a Washington University professor, and Alice is a substitute teacher in the local area. We love it here!

Alice Martin purchased this house in 1996

Why Alice Martin chose Missouri

This property was purchased because of the natural beauty of the area. The area is covered with oaks, hickories and cedar trees, as well as many native wildflowers. The convenience of I-44 close by was an added benefit.

What makes this house unique

This home is secluded, private and very, very quiet. The natural environment is restful and restorative. You can be as isolated as you like, or you can choose to be a tourist and get out to numerous attractions, it is all up to you!

Our dream home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third visit we have had at the Post Oak Chase Guest House. It is clean, peaceful, fun, inspirational, and a time to be together as a family. We'll be back!

Again,

Just a great place. Loved the seclusion and trails. As long as the temperatures are good, the first week of November was nearly perfect.

Fabulously Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place close to home to reconnect with the quiet. Alice's property more than fit the bill. The house is the perfect size, well stocked and comfortable. We had our standard poodle with us and she had a blast, swimming in the pond, running thru the very well maintained paths thru the woods and relaxing on the front porch. Alice asked me if she thought we needed wifi service and I said absolutely not. It does one well to unhook from the TV, computer, ipad, games and whatever else you have yourself hooked up too. We no longer need to travel 5 to 10 hours to get back to total nature. We will be returning frequently.

Wonderful seclusion!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a couple of nights with our dog and just loved it! This house was clean and nicely decorated and the property was very well attended. We walked the trails through the 70 acres and it was quiet (except for the occasional cow mooing in the distance, which we loved), well maintained, and completely private! Our dog absolutely loved it also. The sheets were soft, the kitchen was well equipped and firewood was provided for the wood stove and fire pit next to the dock. Loved that there was no television or internet. No distractions while sitting on porch with our coffee, just peacefulness. We definitely think it was a good value and a would recommend to others.
