"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.

"Very Nice Accomodations"

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.

"We loved this place! The only drawback was the beds were a little noisy when you moved. Can’t wait to come back when it’s warm outside and take advantage of the pavilion by the river! Beautiful views"

Sassafras Cabin

"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!

We stayed with our little girl as a short get away. It was perfect for our little family. My husband and I loved the peace and quiet, and our kiddo loved all of the new space to explore outside. Beautiful scenery, amazing quality family time, and Jessica was super responsive as a host. We will be back!

"Great for a Bachelorette Party"

Our group of girls really enjoyed our stay during a bachelorette party. The owners were really friendly and helpful. The property is very beautiful and secluded. We had a great experience floating on the river one of the days as well. Would definitely recommend!

We stayed here since we had a wedding just down the road. It was a perfect little place with a gorgeous view.

"Quiet area, lovely view"

Sharon C


This property was exactly as listed online. A 2-bedroom cabin, it has a family room with TV, dining area, kitchen, and nice big back porch. It sat at the top of rolling hills on a cattle ranch with a beautiful view. The bed was very comfortable and there was closet space for clothing. The galley kitchen was small but had what I needed for a short visit. Jessica had a French-press style coffee pot but emailed me to see if I wanted her to purchase a regular coffee pot. Since I don't drink coffee much in the summer I didn't need it but appreciated the offer. There were only 2 things I needed but didn't have and they were a hair dryer, since most places have one I don't take mine with me any more. With many people accessing the nearby river for a day of floating, a hair dryer would be nice. The other thing was in the family room it would be nice if there was a coffee or side table, so you can place your drink or snack on it while watching TV. I improvised with an extra dining room chair. This cabin shares a large common backyard space with another bigger cabin, but otherwise is secluded. My neighbors in the other cabin weren't intrusive so it was fine. This visit was exactly what I needed, a short break from my hectic work life. The next time I need a place I would definitely come back but might like to stay longer and probably would look at the other cabin for its added amenities. Communicating with Jessica was easy. She was a very responsive hostess, and I really appreciated the little gift in the freezer on my arrival!
