Slip away to this tranquil and spacious lakeside home near Kansas City. Just a one-hour drive from downtown and 25 minutes from Warrensburg you can get away from it all without the long drive you would expect for a beautiful location like it. You can spend quality time with the whole family or a retreat group, Or just escape for a couples weekend. Both kids and adults have plenty of opportunities to choose their own adventures; from fishing and canoeing in the 5-acre lake to exploring the trails that roam through wooded acres and sloping hills. Simply relaxing on the back deck or screened porch to view the diverse wildlife is another perfect way to unwind during your stay.

This stay can be a destination in itself, complete with trails, fishing and canoeing, a Ping-Pong table, several outdoor games (horseshoes, washers, cornhole, and badminton), and several geocaches. The home features several common spaces for hanging out with the whole family such as a hearth room, screened porch, living room, deck, and two fire pits.

Additionally, this home features a newly renovated kitchen, enough dining space for 16 people, and at least that many seating options outdoors. There is a desk workspace in the kitchen, and just outside is an outdoor griddle and a charcoal grill. A laundry room houses a stack washer and dryer.

The house has 4 bedrooms and a total of 3 ½ bathrooms. The two smaller bedrooms have queen size beds and access to a full bathroom across the hall. The master bedroom has a king size bed and its own full bathroom. The fourth bedroom is the upstairs “bonus room” and holds a king sized bed, a futon, and two optional roll-away beds. This bedroom also has its own full bathroom.

15 miles from this secluded getaway is Warrensburg MO, which is home to both locally owned boutiques/dining, and familiar shopping and eating establishments. Just minutes from this stay is the Rock Island Trailhead of the Katy Trail. We are located 25 miles from Whiteman Airforce Base and Knob Noster State Park. Only slightly more than 1 hour from our driveway is the heart of Kansas City, which features numerous attractions and family friendly activities.

In addition to the house, enjoy 80 acres, a lake, and a Ping-Pong game room in the garage. We also have a variety of yard games and adventure treasure boxes along the trail throughout the property for kids and adults to enjoy. We have limited WIFI based on the 5G cellular network for streaming TV and internet. You should be able to get some work done but don't plan on uploading large files.

I can be contacted by phone.

The Rock House is in a rural setting near Kansas City and Lees Summit surrounded by fields and trees. The closest neighbor is about a half mile away across the road. We are located near the town of Chilhowee where there is a small convenience store but there are many more food and entertainment options in Warrensburg.  Many guests who stay for a week long vacation find it convenient to head into Kansas City, Sedalia or Clinton for an outing or two in order to mix in some fun in town during a their stay.

Our guests are encouraged to bring fishing poles, and utilize the lake and canoe. We do have life jackets. Feel free to bring bikes for exploring the trails! The well water is good, but we provide a 5 gallon bottled water tank for those who are sensitive to hard water. In addition to the private bedrooms, we have two extra cots that can be requested and used in main areas, as well as the couches that are in the hearth room and living room.
