Property Details

2 bedroom | 2 bathroom | Chateau

Enjoy both upscale style and woodsy seclusion in your 1,600 square foot 2-bedroom, 2-bath home surrounded by 200,000 acres of lush forest of Shawnee National Forest. Although this beautiful home is nestled deep in the forest, you will be far from “roughing it.”

KITCHEN/DINING: Your gorgeous kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and everything needed to prepare and serve a great stay-at-home meal if that is on the day’s menu. If grilling is your thing, gas grills and grilling utensils are at your disposal. Or you can enjoy any of the great restaurants within 15 minutes of your home. There are seats at the breakfast bar for a casual dinner, or you can fold out the beautiful antique table for more formal seating.

BEDROOMS: Both bedrooms have new mattresses and feature high quality linens and bedding, comfortable pillows, and beautiful decor- with a mix of antiques and new. The Master features a TV and ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has office desk for remote work and a full-size sleeper sofa for 2 extra guests.

BATHROOMS: Your bathrooms include everything needed for your stay, including the sometimes-overlooked hair dryer.

INDOOR/OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE: If hanging around the house fits your pace, your home includes five acres of forested hills, including a stream and your own private trail throughout the property.  The wood-burning fireplace and outdoor firepit will provide a cozy atmosphere on these chillier evenings at home. Should remote work be unavoidable, you will have Wi- Fi access and an office.
