About Craig and Consie Skembo

We love Far West and the rich history it holds. Far West history needs to be told! We have been drawn to this part of the country for years. Finally, we are living our dream as land and store owners. We want others to feel comfortable here too.

Craig and Consie Skembo purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Craig and Consie Skembo chose Cameron

The Far West House was originally built in the 1890's. It was a Sears Kit home and all building materials arrived on 2 trucks for the farmer to build. It has been added to and remodeled many times. One lady told me she lived there when water was brought into the house. This year we added several rooms and remodeled every room. It is better than a new home!

What makes this farmhouse unique

Leave the world behind. Step back in time, without leaving the comforts of this century. Rest in luxury. Explore the beauty of the area. Far West is peaceful and a great way to cement a family or group.

Wonderful for kids/families!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at the Far West House, and had a wonderful time! The house is very family friendly. The kids were able to enjoy the farm, the swings, and find plenty of space to spread out. We are typically staying in hotels, but the house gave us the flexibility to put kids to bed and continue catching up with relatives. The home was very clean, comfortable, and well equipped for multiple or large families! We are so thankful that we were able to stay here! The house was the perfect mix of charming farm house and updated amenities! The downstairs is large and open, making it a great place for meeting/gathering!

Vacation here to find home and community during you stay. Hospitality with authenticity in every detail. Modern comforts surround you. The night sky, stars, and sounds make for a superior night's rest.

We cannot thank the caretakers and owners enough - be sure to visit the country store that's just a skip away.

The people, the place, and the time you spend there - a sacred experience.

  • 5 of 5

Classic old country charm brought to the modern age making a beautiful scene wonderful place for families friends a place to actually have a real vacation put your feet up soak it in no stress just peace this is the place you want for a real family vacation! A place to shut it down, hide away from the world, find happiness and feel God's love. If you get a chance stop in to this town. Shop at the Far West Country Store and feel the world around you slow down. Fishing Ponds, pioneer working campfire pit, central air conditioned, places to walk. Large area of land for playing games outside, tree swings, decks overlooking the ponds, beautiful views, beautifully designed and decorated. A real Getaway! Looking forward to more trips in the future I've never been able to unwind on a vacation as well as we did here. A MUST STAY location. Bucket List this one!

Family Reunion Fun House

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion with 10 kids and three adults and had a great time. We roasted marshmallows on the fire pit and the kids swung on the two tree swings. The horses were in training, so we did not get to pet or play with them on this trip, but we hope to next time. We had a hard time getting the little girls out of the giant Jacuzzi tub.

The big kids struggled a little bit with the lack of internet connectivity, but that is what the grown ups liked best. The cousins had to go out and play with each other. We even let them set up a tent to sleep in the first night. But the indoor beds were too inviting. There were bunks, and trundles, and king sized beds. My daughter joked about trading her little flat pillow for one of the big fluffy ones there. Unfortunately, there was too much fun to actually spend much time sleeping.

If we were to come back for one of our full size family reunions, there would be plenty of space on property to pitch tents and accommodate the whole group. And still have enough bathrooms for everybody to stay clean, fresh and regular. We would also have enough space to make home cooked meals for everyone. Seating everyone might be a problem, but overall, I would say it is a fantastic place to have a family reunion.
