The space
The perfect place for a visit to the Ozarks where you can enjoy the history and local attractions.

Capable of sleeping up to ten people but also a convenient choice for singles and couples, our space is perfect for groups of all size.

The "Artists Retreat" was originally built as a hostel for workers at the local train station, this space is ready to host you and your family!

Come in the front door to the left of the Welcome sign. You will enter the "Fireplace" room where you can make coffee or tea, use the microwave and store perishables in your mini fridge. Paper dinnerware and flatware will be provided. The fireplace is not in service at this time. Relax on the trundle day bed or use as extra sleeping accomodations.

You can access the downstairs bathroom by going thru the "mudroom" right behind the fireplace room. Feel free to use the washer and dryer if needed. Please do not use the door to the outside that is in the mudroom.

Go up the antique staircase and choose your bedroom. You will have 4 large rooms to choose from! The carpeted BR has a TV and DVD player as well as an assortment of DVDS for you to choose from.

We are located down the road from the historic Laura Ingalls Wilder home. If you and your party are coming to visit Mansfield to have a “Little House on the Prairie” experience, this listing is perfect for you. According to the history of our home, Laura used to frequent the fireplace room inside this listing for regular tea parties with her group of friends. During your stay, you can get a taste of what Laura Wilder’s day-to-day life was like as you drink coffee and tea with your party in the same space she used to enjoy.

If you are visiting Bakers Creek Seed Company for one of their famous festivals, we are a short drive from their location. After driving down the highway for a few miles, you will drive down some gorgeous country roads for about ten minutes until you reach their store and festival site.

We are a fifteen minute drive from Ava, twenty minutes from Mountain Grove or Seymour, and about ninety minutes from Branson or Fort Leonard Wood.

This house was built in 1828 and is the oldest house in Mansfield. Enjoy the wonderful craftsmanship along with all the modern amenities that you need. While it has been remodeled, there are small imperfections that we will be improving as we go. The windows are old and as we progress they will be replaced. Some boards creek and the insulation is sparse in some areas. We have added a window air conditioner to one of the bedrooms to make sure it is comfortable in the summer.
