Property Details

As charming and appealing as the flowering tree it’s named for, Dogwood Cabin is a cozy spot to call home in the gorgeous Missouri Ozarks. Featuring three bedrooms spread out over two floors, there’s lots of room for everyone, yet the spacious open floor plan means it’s easy for you to stay close, too. With a serene back deck that offers a birds-eye view of the Meramec River below, Dogwood Cabin is the perfect home base for an unforgettable family trip to the ozark mountains.

Fantastic Family Living Space
A quaint front porch, which opens to reveal a wide-open living and dining space. Dark wood floors, glossy wood-paneled ceilings, and rustic wood wainscotting provide the perfect mountain cabin vibe, while two overstuffed sofas and a leather wingback armchair provide the comfort. In the corner, a large HDTV sits over the crackling stone fireplace, and a glass-paneled door leads outside to the deck. This soaring space feels like your own private treehouse overlooking the river bed, treetops, and wildlife below. 

Wide Open Kitchen & Dining
Next to the living area is the spacious and homey kitchen. Natural wood cabinets surround a full suite of premier stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher, microwave, electric range, and refrigerator. There’s lots of counter space for prepping meals or snacks for a day of hiking or fishing. In the center of the kitchen, a large custom-built island adds more workspace and a casual place to sit for up to six people. This is the place where everyone will naturally gather together over fresh OJ and coffee while planning your day of adventure on the river.

Three Restful Bedrooms
The first bedroom is on this main level and includes a comfy queen-size bed. The full bathroom is like a private spa— complete with a deep soaking tub that’s a great spot to relax after a long day of outdoor adventure. The remaining two bedrooms are located on the basement level, and each have queen-size beds, wood paneling, and vintage corrugated metal ceilings. There’s also a full bathroom on the basement level and a spacious laundry room. A queen-size sofa bed is also located in the main living area.

A Magical Mountain Cabin
Besides the main level deck with the spectacular views of the river, there’s also an outdoor space on the basement level that houses a sublime hot tub for soaking your cares away and some additional cushioned seating for soaking in the woodland beauty that surrounds you. Guests of Dogwood Cabin also have access to a communal riverside pavilion that houses a smoker, bbq grills, bar, hanging firepit, and a large deck. The location of this homey hideaway places you close to local hiking trails and the river— giving you easy access to explore and enjoy this beautiful, unspoiled part of the country. If you’re searching for a spot to truly relax and find some magical ozark mountain peace, look no further than Dogwood Cabin.

Our host Jessica was fantastic! She was very responsive and the Dogwood Cabin was perfect for our weekend getaway.

"Beautiful Secluded Property"

by Christina H.


My family of four stayed here for a couple days around the holiday. Property was well kept and secluded. We had a relaxing time. Loved the hot tub and the river was a short walk away. Wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature.

We had a great time enjoying the hot tub and fire pit in the snow. Would like to return over the summer.

Great Place!!

"Family Float Trip"

by Allison P.


This place is fabulous! Even though there are neighboring cabins we didn’t hear them. Always felt safe and loved the hot tub after a day on the river. Nieces said the beds were great and best sleep they’d had in a long time. Communication is great also. My GPS gave us a wrong turn but it was a quick response from the owner that got us back on track.

"Nice Property!!"

by Theresa E.


Property is as described. Nice launching point for day float trips. Kitchen has essentials, but as with all rentals, if you are picky about cookware and kitchen tools, bring along your favorites from home. Hot tub was great, view were lovely, and the river pavilion area as an awesome amenity.

"Great Place for a Family Getaway!!"

by Gregory M.


Great location close to Steelville. Great Pavilion for your use on the riverside accessible by with a all wheel drive car or a steep walk. Easy access to floating near property.

by Jessica N.


My family and I stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend! We stayed at the Dogwood cabin and it was amazing! There was so much to do in and around the cabin! The hot tub, fire pit, and the pavilion by the river were some of the fun things you can do on the property! Will definitely be back!


by Joseph H

by Susannah N


We had a wonderful time here with our kids! From the stunning balcony view, to the open floor layout, to the hot tub for late night hangouts, it was perfect! Highly recommend and we will definitely be back!

by Sally U


Fantastic cabin with great views! Very cozy and a fun fireplace and hot tub.

by David B.


Really enjoyed our stay here. Very comfortable and convenient location. Beautiful views and places to walk/hike. Close to other attractions like Steelville and Meramec Springs Park. Highly recommend.

by Chelsea M.


Great stay!

"Gorgeous Country"

by Kristin L


Great place to relax and get away. Beautiful views of rolling hills and not far from great hiking.

"Wonderful Winter Weekend!"

by Alan R


The rustic cabin was perfect for our annual winter weekend. We had a beautiful view over the river valley and watched eagles flying and nesting (we had a great view of an occupied eagles nest with the binoculars). We like to cook so the large kitchen was perfect. The living room was well appointed with two couches and a comfy chair. The bedrooms were a nice size and the beds comfortable. The hot tub was nice touch on the cold winter evenings. There was plenty of heat and hot water, so we were comfortable all weekend. We will definitely be back for another weekend soon!

"Great Place"

by Mark M


We had a blast.

"Nice place!"

by Mike C


We had an awesome time at the dogwood cabin loved the view and the privacy!

by Sara C.


This is such a beautiful cabin with a spacious and calming hot tub! Everything we needed was provided with a well stocked kitchen, plenty of towels, and even a washer and dryer for guests' use. Secluded quiet location with beautiful views but easy drive from the town of Steelville or Cuba. Jessica responded quickly on the rare times I needed to communicate with her. I highly recommend this for a fun and relaxing getaway!

by Kim K


Oh my goodness what a great getaway! The house was clean and beautiful. The Christmas tree and decorations were a sweet touch for our little celebration. We can't wait to come back and experience the cabin in warm weather being so close to the river and the pavilion. Jessica made the whole experience easy and convenient.

by Fred D.


The cabin was wonderful and the surroundings peaceful. Hot tub was great and there was plenty of wood for the fire pit.

"Perfect Place for Wilderness Get-A-Way!"

by Veronica G


We enjoyed this cabin so much. The directions to get there were perfect. Our host was amazing. The cabin was beautiful and had everything we needed. The location was so peaceful and there was some awesome wildlife around us. The only downside to this was that we weren’t right in the river, which it looks like from the photos. Other than that, highly recommend!

"Amazing house and amazing views"

by Marcie S


Our family stayed at this cabin as a weekend getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The hot tub was perfect. Also, our day on the river was excellent. We booked through Kickin Ks. They were very accommodating and so reasonably priced! Thanks for the recommendation !!!

"Fascinating location"

by Bruno K


Outstanding location, nice and peaceful. Thoroughly enjoyed the walks to the river and around the property.


by John S


Crystal was extremely accommodating and responsive, and the cabin was even better in person than we expected. We could not have asked for a more relaxing weekend and hope to return soon!


by Dean C

"owners are very nice. Property is beautiful"

by christy a


What an amazing place. This was our second year here. And we can't wait for next year. Float trip was excellent! We enjoyed the hot tub, the pavilion and river spot is beautiful and just perfect. We all love and enjoy everything at Murphy's Place!! The cabin is just amazing and gorgeous. It's all perfect! Perfect vacation spot.

"Absolutely fabulous!!"

by Caroline C


We stayed at the Dogwood Cabin over the 4th of July weekend - our first time staying at Murphy's Cabins. Everything was absolutely perfect - the cabin was so nice and spacious with a beautiful view, driving through the property is beautiful, and the Pavilion is FABULOUS!! It rained all weekend, and we still had a wonderful time b/c of the Pavilion!! Power, built-in fire-pit, grills and a brick oven, a bar, fridge, tables, a view of the river.... what more could you ask for?? And the winery across the way was also just as fabulous. We will be back - thank you Crystal for being so great to correspond with, and for sharing your special place with us. 🙂
