Magical tree house nestled among oaks on 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 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
Our magical, light-filled tree house is nestled among beautiful oak and sycamore trees perched above an ephemeral rock creek. The room includes a new Oeko-Tex talalay latex queen bed with plush bedding, rugs, small writing desk and reading chair with lamp as well as two verandas with lounge chair and bistro table. A lithium battery pack is provided for lighting, phone/tablet charging and powering the huge ceiling fan for keeping comfortable on warmer days. The three windows that open include screens to keep the tree house bug-free. For the chillier months we have installed a propane fireplace that keeps the tree house very (very) toasty and romantic. There is a french press for morning coffee and a glass and ceramic water dispenser of filtered drinking water. You can heat water for coffee, tea or hot cocoa with the kettle on the propane burner on the deck which is also great for cooking breakfast or other meals in the cast iron skillet. We also have coolers and ice available upon request (for a small fee). Outside there is a bistro table for relaxing and enjoying the forest scenery and wildlife.

The site is secluded but we have improved the gravel road and most guests may follow us almost all the way down to the tree house depending on weather conditions. If you do not have an all wheel drive or 4x4 vehicle we are happy to take you and your gear down to the treehouse in our Ranger ATV. :) We are available to drop you off before 7 pm and to pick you up after 7 am.

While the treehouse does not have indoor plumbing in addition to the large stone fire pit (firewood is available for sale for $7 for a large bundle or you are welcome to bring you own) and national park style charcoal grill and there is a cute wooden outhouse located near the foot of the treehouse stairs. It includes a modern composting toilet (Nature’s Head). It is extremely clean and easy to use. The outhouse also has a small sink with soap and water with a foot pump for handwashing and such.

Guest access
The tree house is nestled deep in the woods which have improved trails throughout for your enjoyment. I am happy to send you an AllTrails map I have made of the property. You are also welcome to come up to the lake and enjoy the covered outdoor room with couches, lounge chair and television. It is a wonderful place to enjoy a movie or sit and watch the rain (or snow!) fall on the lake. There is a sand beach and swim/fishing dock (where the kayaks and paddle board are tied up) just below the outdoor room as well. It is a public space so may run in to some other guests or ourselves relaxing there from time to time, but it is generally pretty quiet.

Other things to note
We felt it necessary to address guests' concerns regarding travel in the face of the coronavirus outbreak.

We here at the Sundance Ranch are taking the coronavirus (COVID-19) very seriously...
Due to the nature of our ranch (overall size, seclusion, controlled access, etc.) of our ranch and the distance between each property, we feel that we are very low risk.

However, we are taking every precaution by fully sanitizing every accommodation and community area here on the ranch after each stay. Additionally, all employees are required to wash their hands frequently and wear disposable gloves.

We are also asking guests who have traveled to areas with high levels of infection (either within the United States or abroad) over the past few weeks to contact us to determine whether their stay should be postponed or cancelled until they have received proper testing.

We will continue to monitor the situation related to COVID-19 as it unfolds, which includes strict adherence to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance and advice from local Departments of Public Health. In doing our part to keep our community healthy, we will continue to work proactively to ensure the highest possible safety standards through this uncertain time. We appreciate your support and look forward to keeping you and you family safe as you enjoy your wonderful vacation here at our beautiful ranch.

Location

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. :) Should you desire a more refined meal (Kansas City BBQ, steak, seafood) or live entertainment (jazz, KC Symphony, concerts, etc.). Kansas City is only 30 short minutes away.

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.
