Plain and Fancy
A romantic getaway bed and breakfast just 2 miles outside the sister cities of Ironton, Pilot Knob & Arcadia in the heart of Missouri's Arcadia Valley; perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, scenic sightseers or those just wanting a peaceful country escape.
This delightful farmhouse, built in 1908, has recently been refurbished and features a romantic hot tub overlooking Stouts Creek, a wedding gazebo and a patio with firepit for those cool evenings.
Enter the front door of this post-Victorian farm house ands see to the right the staircase leading upstairs; straight ahead is the parlor, dining room and kitchen. The ceilings on the first floor are antique patterned tin sheets which have been restored and painted peony white. The original oak and pine floors have recently been refurbished.
The parlor invites you to sit and unwind. Comfortable chairs and reading lamps are placed so that you can enjoy the antique mantle (circa 1904) which has been added to the room. Bookshelves flank the sides. In the bay window sets a table which has an ongoing puzzle. Perhaps you will sit there for the evening or just fill in a piece or two on your way to breakfast.
