Apartment in barn with kitchen, washer, dryer and screened porch. If you enjoy the outdoors you will love this venue. Location is secluded with abundant wildlife. Owner resides next door. Located 18 minutes (10.9 miles) to Pittsburg, Kansas Crossing Casino 11 minutes (6.3 miles), Downstream Casino 38 minutes (31.8 miles) Pittsburg State University 14 minutes (9.4 miles), Joplin, MO 37 minutes (29 miles). Space is intentionally furnished with worn leather furniture to suit riding lifestyle.

The space
Being a horse lover as a girl I always wanted to live in the barn with my horses. My dad and I, along with friends and family, built this place which I occupied as I was building my house on the property. I still love hanging out here with my horses and friends. My favorite place is the screened porch; sit here and you will more than likely spot deer, turkey or possibly a coyote or bobcat. The private fire pit outside of the screened porch is perfect for nights of stargazing; wood is provided free of charge. Outside of hunting season walking trails may be open for guests but be sure to use bug spray as chiggers, oak mites and ticks are prevalent (inquire for trail use at time of booking if interested). Linens, dishes, shampoo, soap, laundry soap, bottled water, coffee and tea furnished. If you forget something (toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, etc) no worries as I more than likely have an extra on hand as I frequently entertain friends and family who stay for extended visits and am always prepared. Leather furniture is well worn for the Ralph Lauren lived in look. This is where my friends and I congregate after riding for drinks and conversation. Magazines, books and videos are stocked for guest use. If you like the outdoors you will surely enjoy your stay. Well behaved pets are welcome if kept on leash at all times when outdoors and away from horses, barn cats and Guinnea hens on property. Horses are known to chase and stomp dogs and coyotes are a threat for small dogs.

Guest access
Access to apartment, screened porch and fenced yard area outside screened porch with fire pit. Ample parking in front of barn. Stable area, loft and areas containing horses off limits to guests. Property is secured with gate at entrance; automatic opener will be provided to guest for use during stay.

Other things to note
Although next door to my house Location is remote and surrounded by trees. If you are afraid of the outdoors, animals or darkness this is not the place for you. Being outside of city limits it gets very dark at night on the property which consequently is perfect for stargazing. I have had friends accustomed to the city who were frightened of the extreme darkness, night time sounds and remote location. Wildlife is prevalent and you may hear wildlife noises at night including occasional raccoons in the loft area above the apartment. Coyotes, groundhogs, turkey, raccoons, snakes, skunks and possums have all been spotted near or in the barn. Also keep in mind this is a farm. There is dust and horses with accompanying smells and flies inside horse paddock and stalls. This does not affect interior of apartment but pending weather conditions could affect if you are on screened porch. Birds chirp loudly in the morning, coyotes howl at night, frogs and crickets sing spring through fall in the evening and if you are lucky you will hear one of the owls on the property. You may also hear the neighbors cows mooing. Country life can be noisy but it’s the best kind of noise. I am pointing this out as city friends have been surprised at the variety of noises on the farm. Several restaurants close by including Josie’s Italian restaurant in Scammon, KS which is a 10 minute drive or you can drive to the Kansas Crossing Casino which has a decent restaurant as well. Pittsburg has a Starbucks, several local coffee houses and a variety of restaurants which are a short drive from the apartment.
