YOU'RE INVITED TO DISCOVER AMERICA'S FIRST HAMMPGROUND & PENNY HOARDER'S MOST UNIQUE LODGING UNDER $100 IN MO. Let yourself experience Ozarks in a completely new fashion. Unplug in fully-equipped, high-end private peaceful escape for up to 4 of U, offering free firewood, marshmallows, light breakfast, private AC bath with hot shower, towels, camping gear & so much more. This glamorous camping is perfect for non-campers who want to swing into their adventure without leaving life's comforts behind

The space

Four comfortable hammock tents swinging between the trees, completely surrounded with vegetation forming a secluded pocket of privacy on 16 acres of wooded property. This unique hammping spot is outfitted with high-end equipment: waterproof tented hammocks, lounging hammocks, sleeping bags with liners, self-inflating mattresses, pillows, blankets, camping chairs, fire pit with cooking grill, camping kitchenware, towels, LED lamps, bug repellent, hot water bottles (in early spring, fall and winter), free firewood, books, games, rain ponchos, candles, safe & dry storage for your belongings and so much more.

Bathroom, running water, a nook with electric tea pot, coffee maker and items for a light breakfast are available in the nearest building (60 yards).

Our house is on the property, as well as other buildings, but the hammpground is secluded so guests will have the run of their place without worrying about disturbing or being disturbed.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use the glider by our garden to catch Wi-Fi. They are also welcome to utilize the fridge in a laundry room and in case of less pleasant weather the sun-room, all in the building adjoining their bathhouse.

We also offer additional services such as access to hot tub, fitness and spa, (European standards apply), professional massages, instructional courses, intimate wedding services, vow renewal, etc... all for a fee. These services are for the comfort and convenience of our guests, who are under no obligation to partake.

Interaction with guests

Our guests value their privacy, so we adjust our interaction to meet their needs. We are always available by phone, text or email.

Other things to note

The hammpground is in use all year but bear in mind that temperature appropriate clothing is required. Don't show up in winter wearing shorts and expect to be comfortable as it won't happen. Long underwear, caps, gloves and warm jackets are mandatory.

To insure no one ever goes hungry, we offer meal services, too. The meals we provide on request are not exactly cheap (as the price covers visiting various local farms, fetching organic ingredients, carefully preparing food and serving it warm to the doorstep or bed of the tipi, at any time you like). But we promise our meals won't only fill the stomachs, without exception people remember them as some of their best dining experiences ever.

Rule no. 1: UNWIND, RELAX & ENJOY. Reading the entire listing is a must to avoid unrealistic expectations, re-asking what is already explained and leaving bad rating because you didn't fully understand what you booked. Only one (1) person in a hammock at a time. The hammocks are rated for a maximum weight of 250 lbs to ensure safe and secure swinging. No eating, drinking, smoking or sharp objects, luggage, pets in the hammocks at any time. We appreciate finding the place just as we left it for you to enjoy. Please return things where you found them. Unless your mom is coming, wash, dry and put away your dishes. Cook only over the fire pit with provided grill, or on a portable stove (not provided). While we ask you to clean the grill after using it, we'll be happy to dispose of the ashes for you. All fires (including candles) must be monitored and put out prior to leaving the site or falling asleep. Smoking outdoors only (ashtray provided). We strive to minimize our environmental impact and so should our guests. Wastefulness is not appreciated. RECYCLE. You are welcome to leave recyclable waste but take away your trash. Every guest is provided free of charge all the necessary camping equipment (but welcome to use your own). Using a cotton sleeping bag liner is mandatory if utilizing our sleeping bags (both provided). Fee for additional guests applies to all ages. While sharing our serene property with you is fulfilling, we appreciate peace and quiet to maintained the tranquility. We like people very much but if you are the type who stresses over sun being too bright in the morning or raccoons licking the dirty dishes you left overnight, please do us all a favor and book somewhere else. We adore kids and animals but refuse to babysit adults. If ever in doubt about anything, ASK. We're always just a click or phone call away. Pet owners: if you insist on bringing your pups along, we expect them to be social, well-behaved and used to sleeping outdoors. If you can't control your dog, don't bring it. The last rule is to play fair: you relied on the reviews of others, so it's common courtesy you contribute too. MAKE SURE TO LEAVE YOUR REVIEW.

Benka does exist! This will most likely be the best Airbnb experience you will ever have. I've been hosting with Airbnb for more than two years, and they are the best, bar none.

You absolutely need to try hamping. The hammocks are super comfortable and rain tight. The hosts are fantastic and have a ton of great add ons you should try there is also plenty to do in the area and they have a great guide book. We hope to try the tipi next time! They really go above and beyond and are amazing people.

Omg, where do we start? The entrance of getting here was beyond amazing! Kora and Benka were there waiting our arrival while Keith was making sure our fire was nice and toasty since we arrived a little later. Their peace of nature is more than beautiful, at times too much to take in at once. Once we was ready for our exploring to kick in Kora was right there to show us the Way! She took us right down to the water and was so patient w us when we wanted to sit at the table and breathe in and take in the Majestic views! Hands down Keith and Benka were the best host we have ever had! We can not wait to come back in September and stay in the Tipi! The guidebook was so knowledgeable ( especially when you're not great at planning ahead on vacation). Keith was very down to earth and up front about where to go around town. We felt more at home than our actual home in Kansas City. ♡

Benka & Keith are incredible hosts with a passion for creating a beautiful experience for visitors. Everything about our stay was magical, and we were so pleasantly surprised to have more land than we imagined to explore and enjoy. The hampgrounds are a short hike to an incredible river, Big River, where we got to swim and enjoy nature all to our selves. Communication was perfect, and they were so kind to invite us a little party they were throwing while we were there. We could not have asked for more. Thank you, Benka & Keith!

Benka & Keith were fantastic hosts!!! Everything you could want in a host, they exceeded expectations. The food Benka made for out arrival basket was phenomenal and did last us 2 meals! Our Hamp site was clean and set up with everything you could want and need for a nigth in teh woods. So much so, we wish we were there longer. They have a beautiful property and the attention to detail in each part is what sets this couple apart from any other airbnb I've stayed in. They are very generous and kind and want to share that with everyone who crosses their path. I am very grateful to have met you both. Thank you!

Benka and Kieth are incredible hosts. I found their hammping site just a few days before hitting the road to find the best location to watch the 2017 eclipse. Booking went through very fast and they were great at communicating the specifics of the directions and rules of the site. Hosting guests at their secluded homestead truly is their passion and a full time job they take very seriously. The hammping site is set up to accommodate both seasoned and inexperienced campers; if you forgot it at home, they have it waiting for you. I was a little worried that I wouldn't get a good night sleep in the hammock, but I actually slept like a baby and had no trouble getting comfortable. I especially enjoyed the presence of a private bathhouse and kitchen area about 50 yards from the campsite. Additionally Benka and Kieth provide a cart for helping you carry your equipment back and forth from the campsite. I can't stress enough how thoughtful, prepared, and helpful these hosts are. As guests with no real plans of where to go or stay next, they jumped at the opportunity to help us make connections and plans for the rest of our journey. They have put so much time and effort into making their property an amazing, private, and relaxing place for travelers; and it shows. I'm booking the teepee next time.

For us hospitality is a labor of love. Come join us and let us introduce you to this spectacular part of the world, where we celebrate every day of our lives. We like spoiling people and revealing secrets of cozy country living. It's our pleasure to have you comfortably tucked away while unwinding and recharging in our little retreat. We guarantee we'll do our best to exceed your expectations.

Yes, we take our hosting very seriously and cutting corners is not our style. In fact, our ideas are constantly being borrowed by other hosts who lack what we have in abundance: experience, expertise and imagination. After being guests in +130 countries, we're well qualified to provide highly personalized hospitality you'll fondly remember for years to come.

Benka is an author holding several Guinness World Records in adventure traveling and Keith works as a foreign adviser.
