Glamping at it's finest! Come enjoy our beautiful 200-acre national park-esque ranch fringed in gorgeous limestone boulders surrounding a spring-fed 15-acre private lake with outdoor living area and sand beach. Great for swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and excellent fishing. We are only 5 minutes from downtown Excelsior Springs, Excelsior Springs Golf Course and 3EX municipal airport. We live on-site and will generally be available throughout your stay should you need or desire.

The space
The beautiful, breathable, waterproof canvas bedouin-style tent is perched atop an elevated wood platform in a wooded setting. The accommodations at the site are rustic, but upgraded with an adorable outhouse with modern composting toilet, a foot pump sink with soap for handwashing and solar lights inside and out. A queen bed with plush bedding, rugs, tables and chairs are inside the tent as well as a lithum generator for lighting, phone/tablet charging and an energy smart Vornado fan for keeping comfortable on warmer days. There is a french press for morning coffee, a water carafe of filtered drinking water provided as well as a jug and basin for face, hand or feet rinsing and a large charcoal and propane grill with a side burner for grilling, heating water and cooking (coolers and ice are available upon request for a small fee). Outside there is a bistro table for relaxing and enjoying the forest scenery and wildlife as well as a picnic table by the barbeque grill.

Where you’ll be

Excelsior Springs, Missouri, United States

Excelsior Springs is a quick jaunt away and provides access to great dining, entertainment and history. The Excelsior Springs golf course is 5 miles away as is the 3EX municipal airport. Willow Spring Mercantile downtown has a great atmosphere, delicious food and sells local Missouri goods (including wine and spirits). For a quick run, Dollar General is 1 mile away. Also, Spring Delivers offers a food delivery service from most local restaurants and fast food establishments. A designated cooler is located in the main barn where food deliveries will be stored until you retrieve them. :)

I love my husband and little son, traveling and my kitties... my hobbies include gardening, hiking, surfing, snowboarding, swimming and relaxing by the lake... I am extremely health conscious and do not drink (much ;), smoke or do any drugs... I am very conscientious and respectful of others and appreciate the kindness and hospitality of all the Airbnb hosts who have welcomed me. I have a passion for art, music, animals and nature... I am a kid at heart with big dreams and an even bigger imagination.
