The new furnishings are Victorian-modern and beautifully accent the high ceilings, tall windows, and lovely wood trim throughout the home.
The Aquasana Water Filtration system and the Air Scrubber (created by NASA) offers state-of-the-art indoor water and air quality. Towels and linens are washed using the Laundry Pro system (no soaps or fragrances) which was also developed by NASA.
The original 350-acre property was owned by George Carney, best known for his Memoryville, USA car museum in Rolla, Missouri. 5½ miles from town on State Route E, George created a unique mining town to serve as a movie set and to host artisans, craftsmen, and farmers to sell and market their products. Donna Douglas (Elly Mae Clampett of Beverly Hillbillies’ fame) and George were long-time friends. George built Donna this Victorian style home on the property to serve as her "home away from home" and as a film set for children’s videos.
The beauty of the 53-acre wild flower filled property is breathtaking. See deer, butterflies, wild turkey, and armadillos. The large front porch overlooks the cedar and oak forest where gorgeous sunrises and sunsets await. On your porch swing, listen to the evening sounds of owls, crickets, and croaking frogs. Stroll at night and gaze on the wonder of a sky filled with stars.
Guests are free to hike the property and explore the many buildings designed to replicate a turn-of-the-century Midwestern mining town.

I am a quiet and tidy house guest and love using Airbnb any chance I get. My husband and I are planning to put our own guest house on Airbnb by June 1. I travel a great deal for my work and provide reconciliation services to couples, families, and churches on-site in their location.
