When we arrived Sunday afternoon, December 8, at the most incredible, soon-to-explode jewel of Missouri, Buffalo Lodge, for a birthday get-away, I was blown away. I have heard rumblings of this “got-to-see-it-to-believe-it” locale and my wife deemed it closer than Big Cedar Lodge (one of my frequented birthday celebration venues) and perhaps almost as nice. She was correct on the former (only 50 minutes from Leawood) and mistaken on the latter…it was every bit as wonderful as that hallowed Ozarks vacation heaven.
We arrived in a dusting of snow, though every step from drive to front door had been swept away. A fresh wreath on the door greeted us as we entered into the pine-finished paradise called “The Lodge.” None of the pictures do it justice. The attention to detail by the owners is almost OCD. Not a speck of grit, dust, cobwebs, burned out bulbs, stains, smears. Our room was topped by freshly pressed sheets, fluffy towels, soft music and an almost zen level of peacefulness. Even the stoneware plates were stacked in correct color sequence! We enjoyed personalized (and beautifully printed) menus prepared in-house by Chef Jaymie who created dinners of chicken parmesan one evening and bison steaks the next. Both were so tender, I could cut them with a fork.
The next morning, I enjoyed the expansive glass windows as I watched the snow drift across the pastures. Not a human in sight. Outside…not a single sound. Nirvana!
On Day Two, the in-house masseuse arrived to provide 90 minute massages in front of the fireplace. In the afternoon, we did a little day-tripping to nearby Greenwood and Pleasant Hill before returning for dinner.

We are passionate about our land and the animals it supports. If you have an interest in pasture management and buffalo, we'll happily talk your ears off! Campfires, star gazing, sunsets, and horseback riding are our favorite things to enjoy together. And, of course, staying at other bed and breakfast locations!
