Photos and Description of this Rushville holiday farmhouse

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Have you ever wanted to have the quiet and solitude of being in the rolling countryside away from the stress of the city but still have all the comforts of a modern, luxurious house with a porch and rocking chairs to sit on while you watch the world go by? This 3 bedroom, 2 bath house on a working farm has all of this while being only 1 hour's drive from downtown Kansas City (45 minutes drive from World's of Fun, Oceans of Fun, and MCI airport), 20 minutes drive from St. Joseph Missouri and Missouri Western State University, 15 minutes drive from Atchison Kansas and Benedictine College, 15 minutes from Snow Creek Skiing, and 40 minutes drive from Fort Leavenworth Kansas. The house has 1 large bedroom with ensuite bathroom and two other large bedrooms with a shared bath, wood-burning fireplace, large front porch, large open plan kitchen, dining room, and all of the modern conveniences that you'd expect from a house that is less than 15 years old. If it's peace and quiet that you're after then this place is what you're looking for. It's a half-mile from the state highway on the top of a big hill so you have a panaramic degree view in all directions. The house is ideal for watching sunrises and sunsets but if you want to keep current on everything happening in the rest of the world then you can connect to the Wi-Fi. Bed linen, pillows, and towels are provided for all 3 bedrooms.

Everything you could want or need!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for all my bridesmaids to stay in over the weekend of my wedding and as Bridal Headquarters the day of the wedding. While these east- and west-coast girls were a little intimidated by the gravel roads, they loved it's Midwestern charm and homey feel. They thoroughly enjoyed their stay, particularly since all the everyday amenities were provided! It was the perfect place to give the gals a taste o' Missouri in a comfortable, spotless, and spacious home!

Owner's Response: It so good to hear that this guest was able to utilize the central location of the house for gathering her friends during her wedding and enjoy the tranquility and comfort of the dwelling in the Missouri countryside. Making sure that our guests have a relaxing stay is our objective.

Owner's Response: It's great to hear from a guest that the house is a fantastic place to watch sunrises and sunsets from the south-facing porch because that's one of the most wonderful features of the house and its location on the top of a hill in the quiet Missouri rural countryside.

Country Delight

  • 5 of 5

Ten things I really liked about this VRBO property.

1. It was so clean.

2. I loved the country setting. It sits on a high ridge with great views in all directions.

3. The front porch. It is hard to beat a front porch, especially one with views like this one.

4. The owners allow you to bring the two rocking chairs from the living room to sit on on the front porch each evening. What a treat that was.

5. The home is very spacious. There were only three of us , but you could have six or severn people and not feel crowded.

6. This home is much better supplied than most places I have stayed in through VRBO. Lot of cooking utensils, towels, condiments, blankets (none are really needed in MO in the summer}, etc.

7. Very helpful and friendly owners. Janey who lives close by made sure everything we needed was there and was very helpful in guiding us to the places we needed to get to during our stay.

8. The wonderful breezes that the front porch captures. There was a fresh breeze blowing every day that we were there and it was so refreshing.

9. The Missouri sunrises and sunsets. You get to see both from this home and they are long lasting and delightful.

10. The country setting. We rented this home so we could spend a couple of days with our granddaughter who works in Kansas City. We were looking for a place for her to "get away", and we found it here. We spent two days in great conversation talking about memories and the future and, in the process, made more great memories.

For these and lots more reasons, we loved our stay here. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a peaceful, beautiful escape from the hectic pace that defines so much of modern living.

Owner's Response: I must admit that this guest very eloquently summed up all of the reasons that we feel that our house is an ideal place to forget your worries, sit on the front porch in a rocking chair and let the world go by while you're staying in a in a comfortable, well-appointed, modern house in the Missouri countryside. We share the very same sentiments and look forward to welcoming new guests.

Great time on MO!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting family and friends last week. Glad we chose your place to stay. Located close enough to St. Joe and KC to make the trips back and forth easy. The house was the perfect size for the 5 of us. It's been a long time since we have seen so many stars. Probably our favorite part about staying on the farm. We will see if it's available again on out next trip back.

Owner's Response: Being away from a major city in the rural countryside is why it's great for stargazing and I'm glad that this guest has made this discovery. It's so magical to just walk around the outside of the house at night, look at the amazing light show in the sky, listen to the owls and night birds, and just revel in the quietness of being in the country.

Gorgeous views and perfect setting for a family

  • 5 of 5

The house was fully stocked with everything we needed to have a comfortable stay with our two young children. The views were phenomenal, and our children enjoyed playing in the front yard. We even got a tour of the farm, and the kids got to see the horses and cows. It was a wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: It's always comforting to receive such positive feedback from a guest because my wife and I, and my sister strive to have all of the amenities needed for a comfortable and memorable stay for each and every one of our guests. However, it's the actual setting of the house on a hill in the countryside with stunning views all around that make it special.

Cousins Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the country! We spent early mornings and evenings on the porch listening to the song birds and watching the cattle as the sun rose and set. The house was lovely and close to everything we wanted to do in the city. We definitely recommend this wonderful house to anyone who wants a little country and yet be close to the big city!

Owner's Response: We're always pleased to get feedback from our guests that the location in the countryside with it's peace and quiet, added to it's not-to-close proximity to several different cities provides a great balance of tranquility and convenience. It's a winning combination that is great for our busy lives.
