Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Charming house surrounded by trees, pastures, woods and a barnyard full of lovable critters.

Perfect place to write, read, paint or just pause.

Wooded trails lead to neat waterfall and beautiful creek.

Less than an hour to downtown Kansas City. 25 min to Lovely Weston MO 25 min to Atchison, KS 10 min south of St Joseph, MO (within 25 minutes to Benedictine College and Missouri Western)

The space
This is a small working farm in a rural area complete with goats, chickens, ducks, horses, cats and the world's best not-so-mini-pig Dolores Claiborne. You will hear coyotes howling and my Livestock Guardian Dogs barking and protecting my livestock from predators. A choir of roosters will cockadoodle doo in the morning. So if you're a light sleeper, you might turn on the white noise machine we provide.

Where you’ll be

Saint Joseph, Missouri, United States

The Carriage House is in the country. But it's a short 15-minute drive to historic St. Joseph, Mo and a 20-minute drive to Atchison, Ks and 25 minutes to Weston, Mo. KCI airport is 35 minutes away.

The Snow Creek ski/board/tubing mountain is an easy 25-minute drive. (25 minutes with no traffic 27 minutes if you get stopped by a train lol)

There's a great family restaurant P&J's in DeKalb.

For best biscuits and gravy ever, check out Betty's Cafe which is 10 minutes away. They have amazing lunch specials (close at 2 p.m.)

We are hosting families with students attending college at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas and Missouri Western University in St. Joseph. It's 25 minutes to either campus from us.

Atchison is home to Amelia Earhart and you should visit her birthplace (pending covid restrictions) and I love Paolucci's Italian Restaurant in Atchison for breakfast, lunch or dinner - they also have a fun cocktail lounge where you can grab a drink.

Crockett Farms is a pumpkin wonderland in the fall. In the spring, they sell flowers. They usually have some nice antiques and crafts for sale when they are open. People of all ages love Crockett Farms and you can easily spend several hours there. It's a 7 minute drive from the Dell.

We are 7 minutes from the beautiful Timber Ridge wedding venue in south St Joseph

During your stay

The Carriage House is just a hundred yards from the house in which I live. I am a writer and farmer and mother and work from home so I'm here for whatever you need.

Special order gourmet carriage house cakes are available. Catering is also available for dinner or breakfast when my schedule allows. Please give me one week notice for cake and meal orders.
