"Christmas getaway"

Tonya O


My family and I decided on an experience instead of too many presents this year. We definitely had an experience- fishing and hiking on Christmas day, thanks to perfect weather and a beautiful location. The Sassafrass cabin was a comfortable fit and had all we needed. There was even a Christmas tree! We highly recommend this stay.

Everything was outstanding! Clean, quiet, private and that hot tub!! We had an amazing time reconnecting after 15yrs together. And I’m so grateful we found this beautiful property! Next time we will share it with the kids and I will pet that pretty horse down the lane! We will be back for sure!! Side note… I think I might have a new obsession for cows! Watching them live there best life on this farm is refreshing to see! We loved every second there!

"Wonderful Getaway"

Jon D


I have zero complaints about our stay and the property and couldn’t even find a complaint we tried. Crystal answered all questions we had quickly prior to our stay. The property was very clean and maintained very well. The house was stocked with everything we could possibly need. It was tastefully put together and had all the perks and amenities we would want. Our expectations were exceeded and we highly recommend booking with Crystal. We will absolutely be coming back this summer.

The cabin is very nice and clean and the property is secluded with beautiful views of the river. We really enjoyed walking the property, the outdoor jacuzzi tub, and the gas fireplace. Very relaxing trip! I would highly recommend this cabin.

The cabin was a very quiet and relaxing getaway. The Meramec Spring was a short ride away and was a beautiful spot to spend the day.

"Amazing Property"

christine b


We stayed at the Sassafras Cabin for a long weekend. Firstly, the pictures don’t do it justice! The cabin was super cute,, well appointed, amazing views and a great hot tub. Plenty of privacy but there were areas on the property for guests to get together and hang out down by the river on the large patio. We will definitely be going back!

"Nice location with a great view"

Kevin B


This was a really nice place to stay. Has a cozy cabin feeling to it. This location is great and the view on the back deck in the evenings is fantastic. Although we didn't get a chance to take advantage of it, the gazebo down by the river also looked great. Highly recommend this place if you're looking to get away.

"Relaxing, modern, & Fantastic"

The Sassafras is a darling cabin for 4 people. We enjoyed the hot tub, full kitchen, comfortable beds, and woodland atmosphere.

"Just what the doctor ordered!"

Monica M


Our family of 3 and 2 pups enjoyed our stay in the Sassafras immensely! Whether you just want to relax on the deck or in the hot tub, explore the wooded paths & caves, float, fish, sun, cook, BBQ, or drive in to town for supper, ice cream, or comb unique shops - you'll find something for everyone here. Our hosts were very gracious and accommodating, and we were quite envious of their dream setup! Cabins are very clean, spacious, and everything is in great condition & working order. Everything you need to enjoy your stay is included, free firewood for the pit, wi-fi, cable, towels, bedding, kitchen items, hot tub. We can't wait to go back, it's the perfect quick get-a-way from St Louis. Eager to try all of their cabins! Each are just as perfect and unique as the next!

"Beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing"

My wife enjoyed this cabin for our 5th anniversary. We had been on a few trips before, cruises, bed and breakfast, hotel, but this was by far the most relaxing stay we have ever had! I would recommend it to anyway.

"Wonderful Cabin!!"

Megan M.


Loved this adorable, quaint cabin! Perfect for me, my husband, two teens and our lab! It was clean, cozy, comfortable and had all the items needed in the kitchen to make a meal. You have to drive/walk to river access, but it's only a couple minutes just down the road (two great spots) and it's easy to get in and out. It was secluded enough to feel like you're away from everything, but also close enough to town to run and grab groceries, or other needed items. We met the owners and they were so friendly! We got a little lost at first coming in, so make sure you look for the signs that direct you to Murphy's Place, 4J Vacation Rentals property (Sassafras Cabin). It might be helpful to have exact directions sent once you book the place....since it's situated pretty far back from the road. Such a wonderful get away! We will be back for sure!

"Relaxing weekend get away"

Michael W


I had a nice relaxing weekend at the cabin house. Took a drive around the surrounding area, saw lots of deer, horses, cattle and other wildlife. Enjoying the sunrise with a cup of coffeee, while sitting in the hot tub on a December morning made the trip well worth it. Thank You as I look forward to revisiting with some friends this coming summer.

"Views were breathtaking!"



We desperately needed to get away from the city to enjoy some nature - the Country Cabin provided that for us. We walked our dogs who loved all the new sights and smells, sat by a fire at night, and took a lot of photos of the beautiful scenery. We picked up food from Rich's Famous Burgers and enjoyed it while sitting under the carport, at the cabin, while taking in the view. The lady at Rich's, now I can not recall her name, was VERY welcoming - we chuckled a bit during our exchange. 🙂 Burgers were delicious! The cabin had enough space for us to stretch out, while not feeling too big. The kitchen had everything we needed except an 8"x8" pan to bake cornbread it. We purchased one at the local grocery store and gifted it to the cabin. 🙂 We brought our own spices. There is another cabin pretty close to this one, but I feel it woud be more of a non-issue as there is a good amount of green space between them and each has their own "fire pit" location. It was not occupied during our stay. Jessica was quick to respond to messages, friendly, and thanked me after I provided a rundown on how we left the cabin. I can only imagine the beauty of the fall leaves . . . we saw a very small representation when we were there earlier this month (October). If y'all are thinking about a trip to Steelville, I recommend considering the Country Cabin. You'll be amongst nature after leaving the hustle behind . . .

"Perfect place"

Emily J


We had such a wonderful time staying here! The house is so clean and we'll appointed! We came for my cousin's wedding at Crossbuck barn and I don't think there is anywhere closer to stay. The covered patio was perfect for family to come by and visit on a rainy day and we used it every night to enjoy the peace and quiet of the location!

"Absolutely AMAZING"

Gina S


We came to Missouri for our sons graduation from US Army basic training at Fort Leonard Wood. We decided to make a long vacation out of it and chose to stay at this vacation rental. We had an amazing time, Jessica and Justin were wonderful! They were very accommodating and just a blessing to us. The home was perfect! The beds were super comfy, the home was clean, the kitchen was equipped with all we needed, the steaks we purchased from the farm were AWESOME on the grill, and the hot tub was spectacular! We loved exploring the property, playing in the river, driving to the field to look at the stars, watching the sunrise and the beautiful sunsets! We even had a deer family visit us multiple times. Thank you so much for sharing your property with us. We highly recommend this property and we will be back again!
