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 space

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.

Guest access

Guests are free to hike the property and explore the many buildings designed to replicate a turn-of-the-century Midwestern mining town.

Judy's place is newly renovated, well appointed and very comfortable to stay in. It was spotless and the kitchen was stocked with condiments, coffee, creamer, etc. We couldn't stay long, but look forward to returning

Judy and Jim made us feel at home in this beautiful house. Very clean, and tidy. House and kitchen fully equipped with everything we needed. Located back off the road nestled in the woods. We loved hearing the birds and Owls and nature sounds at night as we slept in the comfortable bed. It was close enough to Rolla to make it easy to go into town but far enough away to feel as if we were far far away. Summing it up Super clean and newly remodeled. Everything Great

We were looking for a quiet place for an extended weekend getaway, and The Victorian was just perfect! First of all, it had been newly redone and was just adorable! It felt cozy, but there was plenty of room to move around. The kitchen was clean and well stocked, and we had no problem cooking several simple meals there. It was within a reasonable driving distance to lots of outdoor activities in the area, and of course we had a great time exploring the actual property itself, poking around in the woods and all of the little outbuildings. Best of all, it was so quiet that it was nearly silent, save for the wind in the trees and lovely birdsong on the property. We had a wonderful time and would go back in a heartbeat!

Not long after you left, we bumped into a little "forest pig" (armadillo) out for a stroll! Cute little thing toddled off snorting the whole way! Come back again!

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.
