The James River Cabin is a secluded cabin nestled among the trees on 25 acres of river front property. It is just 10 short miles from Springfield, Missouri and less than an hour from Branson, Missouri. On-site activities are numerous and include bicycling, trail hiking, utv trail riding, kayaking, fishing, hot tubbing, and swimming in your own personal paradise. The rental price includes utv and kayak/paddle board use. The river access is a short but fun two minute utv drive from the cabin.

The space
This uniquely rustic, modern, yet child-friendly cabin provides a fully stocked kitchen with keurig and regular coffee pot and lots of spices and pantry items. Sleeping accommodations for 6 adults (max) and two children, a wood burning fireplace, outdoor fire pit and string lights, Propane grill, HOT TUB, three furnished outdoor living areas, satellite and roku tv, king bed in the master, and tasteful but comfortable decor and linens. We provide a pack n play, baby gate, oscillating fan, baby monitors, high chair, a basket of toys, firewood, tackle box, smores kit, hot dog roasters, chairs for the river, UTV, two single kayaks, two paddle boards, (a canoe upon request), two adult large lifejackets and two small child lifejackets (15-30 lbs), and indoor/outdoor games. Please bring your own inflatables. The cabin’s architecture is thoughtfully designed and includes a cozy reading nook and work station. The cabin is very kid friendly with an outdoor playground and a locking gate for the back deck. This is a RURAL area without high speed cable access! If high speed internet is your main concern, please look elsewhere. We have verizon mifi and a cell phone booster that suits most needs but it can be slow at times. Cell service is spotty for most carriers, calls are difficult but texts go through.
