The Homestead Farmhouse was built by Alonzo and Ersie Spencer. They raised a family with six children in this home that was built during the depression using lumber taken from trees on the property. Through the years it has been modernized. I am the their granddaughter and I used it for an art studio and gallery until the summer of 2015. I totally remodeled and updated the interior. There is a large new kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom with a shower featuring handprinted tiles. There is energy efficient heating and cooling. There is a wonderful large porch on the front. A remnant of early times, the root cellar is in back of the house. The smoke house is no longer standing. There are two ponds on the property and a wooded 40 acres to explore. The Homestead has the added convenience of not being on a dirt road. For this reason it is perfect for motorcycles. The location is about half way between Jasper and Ponca. It is close to Buffalo river access and hiking trails.
2 bedrooms 1 bath big screen porch with views

About Merlyn Lazorow
I am a retired art and design teacher. I divide my time between Kansas City and Arkansas.
Merlyn Lazorow purchased this Cabin in 2011
Why Merlyn Lazorow chose Jasper
This property is dear to my heart because it has been in my family for 4 generations. When times were hard most of the people of this area left in the early 1950's to find work in cities primary Kansas City. I was raised there but never lost my feeling of home that this farmhouse represents to me. I think you too will enjoy the warmth of this old farmhouse with modern conveniences.
What makes this Cabin unique
The Homestead is in an ideal location. It is just 5 miles from Jasper and very close to river access at Kyles landing.

Super convenient & comfortable!
We brought our two 17 year olds and 2 dogs and hiked, hung out, watched movies and really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you Merlyn for sharing a piece of
your family history with us!
Very quiet, nice farmhouse - best for moderate weather
The house has a great kitchen. For accessibility, the entrance was good and it had a shower easy to step into; only suggestion is it would have felt safer turning around with a grab bar or two. The major complaint is the first couple of days were really frigid and the electric heaters had a hard time keeping up. Owner did respond quickly when one of the theater's remote wasn't working.
The cabin was clean, comfortable, and well equiped! Mountain roads were a bit intimidating to us 'flat landers' but got used to them and got to see a whole herd of elk down the road a bit! So relaxing!
Great location and charm.
Nice place for the value. Old home with great personality. Perfect location, I would stay there again. Beds were comfy!
This lovely remodeled on the inside farmhouse brought back so many memories...loved our peaceful time here...
I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay. !
