Property Details

Intimate and inviting, Sassafras Cabin combines the rustic adventure of a classic hunting cabin with the warmth and comfort of a cozy mountain cottage. With two serene bedrooms, a private hot tub on the porch, and peaceful views of the surrounding rolling hay fields and the sparkling Meramec River beyond, Sassafras Cabin is the place to hang your hat when you want to truly relax and soak up the surrounding breathtaking beauty of the Ozarks. 

A Lovely Living Space for the Whole Family
Surrounded by towering mature trees, the modest facade of Sassafras Cabin includes a covered front porch and hot tub. Once inside, the main living area features two super-comfy overstuffed sofas with plenty of space for everyone to snuggle up in front of the fireplace. A large HDTV is mounted above the flames for a perfect family movie night with a big bowl of popcorn. Gleaming hardwood floors, stone walls, and knotty wood paneling add to the magical mountain cabin vibes.

An Open Kitchen and Dining Area
The kitchen is wide open to the living space, which is ideal for families and groups of friends that want to enjoy some snacks without sacrificing any socializing time. Natural wood cabinets surround the full suite of premier stainless steel appliances, including a refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and electric range. The kitchen island has some casual bar stool seating for four, while the nearby dining table has seating for four more. This is the ideal space to flip a stack of fresh blueberry pancakes while waiting for the morning coffee to brew, or prepare some snacks to take on the hiking trails. 

Two Blissful Bedrooms
The two bedrooms offer a tranquil space to recharge at the end of the day. Each bedroom has a comfy queen-size mattress set into a rugged log bed frame. There are also bedside lamps for reading in bed and ceiling fans overhead for comfort. The full bathroom features a jetted soaking tub and a separate step-in shower. There’s also a pull-out sofa in the living room for additional flexible sleeping space.

An Idyllic Location on the Meramec River
Outside on the covered porch, there’s a perfect spot for an alfresco meal in the warmer months, and a charcoal grill for barbecuing and roasting marshmallows for dessert. Nestled on an idyllic 16-acre spread in the magical Missouri Ozarks, guests of Sassafras Cabin also have access to a communal riverside pavilion that houses a smoker, bbq grills, bar, hanging firepit, and a large deck. Spend your days hiking, mountain biking, fishing, or paddleboarding on the river, and your evenings sipping cocktails under the stars by the firepit. Sassafras Cabin is the place where true laid-back ozark mountain relaxation comes to life.

It was exactly what we were looking for. It has a great views off the back porch even though there is not a picture of it!

"Quite and peaceful"

by Laura T.


We got a little confused on location. Google maps failed us that night but travel and being dark out when we arrived really made it hard to see. Place was quite, beautiful, clean and cozy. We had a very nice stay.

by Dylan W.


Do yourself a favor - stay here. - the property is beautiful - comfortable beds (even the pullout couch is really comfy) - wonderful hot tub - amazing GIANT jetted bathtub - plus you can order amazing cuts of meat for your stay or for when you leave (American Wagyu or Angus from their ranch) The best cabin and property in the steeleville area.

by Kayla F.


Such a beautiful cabin with beautiful views! We will definitely be looking at trying to book another one of her cabins!

"New Review"

by Luke D.


Very nice place and quite . Very clean and accommodating to anything we needed. River access was a very nice plus as well.

"Amazing & Relaxing"

by Nicole P.


Of course we absolutely loved the hot tub. The view was amazing. We all had an amazing time and would love to come back in the future.

"Great family get away"

by Taryn P.


Loved the stay my kids had a great time as well


by Sheila G.


Our stay was wonderful. The cabin was perfect and the view overlooking the valley was great. I definitely plan to stay here again.

by Robert K


Exactly what we expected! We had a great time with our family over the weekend. The kids loved the combo of the hot tub and all the outdoors. We had all the necessities to enjoy the outdoors but relax at the end of the night. Looking forward to going back!

"Wonderful Cabin!!"

by 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!

"Excellent, again!"

by Jenika J.


Quiet, clean, all the extras…loved it! Jessica is friendly and accommodating. We brought the kids along this time and everyone enjoyed themselves.

"Winter Outing"

by Donald D.


My friends and I had a great time. The cabin met our expectations. It was a quiet and peaceful setting.

by Kyle F.


The little things that count! The cabin we stayed in was immaculately clean, comfortable, and fully furnished. Truly a pleasant getaway experience from the hustle and bustle…

by Alexandra R.


Thank you so much! We had the best weekend!! Location was amazing, the views were awesome.. the snow added a nice touch! We couldn't have asked for a better time. Thank you!❤️

"Christmas getaway"

by 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.

by Bre B


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


by Sarah K


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!

"Great get a way!"

by Shawnna T


Great place to get away from the noise of the city. Lots of wildlife and fresh country air. We have been here twice already now and will return again!

"Great get away"

by Sara H


We stayed here over the weekend for our 7 year anniversary. Was the secluded stay we were looking for ❤️❤️❤️

"Wonderful gateway"

by Sanin F


We had great and such a relaxing time.

"Very beautiful & relaxing"

by Mary H


The view was stunning from the cabin overlooking the river. We loved relaxing by the firepit and in the outdoor hot tub. It was a lovely weekend!

"Wonderful Getaway"

by 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"

by Jene B


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.

"Relaxing getaway"

by Jennifer C


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.

"Quiet Oasis"

by Shawnna T


Great place to get away from a noisy city. One of our favorites so far.

"Amazing Property"

by 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"

by 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"

by Debbie D


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!"

by 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"

by Matthew B


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.
