Peace and quiet. Solitude on the St. Francis is a lovely log cabin set in the woods. It is approximately ten miles north of Sam A. Baker State Park in an isolated area. The cabin sits on 260 acres that border the St. Francis River. The St. Francis is easily accessible (a quick two minute walk from the cabin) and is an excellent fishing, swimming and floating river. This log cabin has a master bedroom with a queen size bed, a loft with a full size mattress and a downstairs semi-private bedroom with a full size log bed. Solitude is all electric. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, stove-top burners, crock pot, drip coffee maker, toaster, pots & pans, dishes and utensils. There is one bathroom and a walk-in shower. Solitude is equipped with central heat and air a land line telephone and satelite TV with dvd. The very cold Seabaugh Spring sits in front of the cabin and flows into a small pond and creek that leads into the St. Francis. Bring your inner tubes and swim gear and spend the day at the river. There is also a BBQ grill in front of the cabin and a fire pit for bonfires. There are two miles of hiking trails and a two acre fishing pond on the property. If you are looking for a getaway from civilization, this is the place.
Mike Fleming became the concessionaire at Sam A. Baker State Park in 1996. He soon began looking for property on the St. Francis River to erect a log cabin, a dream long held as a young man growing up in Kansas City. He and his future wife Jody attended the Great Lakes School of Log Building in Ely, Minnesota. The cabin they helped build was purchased and shipped via log truck to this very special spot where it was reassembled. Since then, a full kitchen and bedroom have been added.
Mike & Jody Fleming purchased this cabin in 1997
Mike heard about this beautiful property in 1997. His first hike into this remote spot was love at first sight. Locals tell of the history of Seabaugh Spring, (located in front of the cabin), a well-known resting spot along the hilly and arduous journey to Fredericktown.
The 260 acres is an extremely isolated area teeming with Missouri wildlife including deer, turkey, bald eagles, turkey vultures, owls, coyotes, skunks, bobcats, raccoons, opossum and yes, snakes. Occasionally, some wildlife can be sighted from the cabin's porch. Swimming, fishing, canoeing, moderately strenuous hiking trails and bird watching are some of the activities you can enjoy.
We were 2 couples needing a break in the worst way. This was so perfect in all aspects. Quiet, clean, and more than you expect. We have plans to return for a longer stay next year!
Beautifully and most uniquely decorated Ozark cabin experience we have ever enjoyed so far !
Solitude is a good name it's all that you could want plus all that you need that's comfortable to stay complete with a babling Spring that's soothing and refreshing to listen to in the quiet Ozark hills flowing into the spring pond you can canoe and fish or just enjoy the solitude of the the remote Ozark hills . Hiking , another lake and adjoining St Francis river more options to enjoy
Love it , had the blessing of cool fall weather to make its way in to enjoy all the quiet setting had to offer .
We came to Missouri to spend some time at the Shut Ins, but we ended up spending almost all of our time at the cabin! The land surrounding the cabin is absolutely beautiful- plenty of walking, fish, and even swimming. There were 6 adults, 1 toddler, and our small dog, all of which were quite comfortable in this unique cabin. We will definitely be back and hope to stay a little longer next time.
We had a great weekend, even though it rained pretty much the whole time. This cabin is perfectly decorated. Beautiful, inside and out. I could stay there for a very long time. The only thing, we had six people in the cabin and there were only 6 towels and 6 washrags. If you are planning on staying for a long time, you might want to take extras. My husband wished there was a book to sign. I am definitely going to consider booking again.
This is the 2nd time I have stayed at Mike & Jodi's "Solitude" and again, it was fantastic!! The property was in excellent appearance and the cabin inside was completely spotless.We had a minor issue and I notified Mike and it was resolved in a matter of just a few hours. That was the only time we saw anyone on the property. Solitude offers such piece and quiet and allows one to completely relax either swimming, hiking or sunning next to the pond. This time went to the fishing pond and how absolutely gorgeous and serene it was. I wish had gone there the first day. In the evening, under the stars, the sound of the Boar's call added to the flavor of being in a place where no other people are for miles. Just you and nature. This is one of the most ideal places to come to to relax and do simply nothing for days and forget about the outside world. I stopped in the nearby town of Piedmont for supplies. Very good selection of food and other provisions at the Town & Country Market. I have already recommended "Solitude" to several of my friends. It IS the perfect getaway. Thank you again Mike & Jodi for allowing me to visit again. I plan on making this a yearly stop!!!
If you want solitude, peace & quiet, this is the place! Absolutely gorgeous cabin, rustic, spotless, tastefully decorated & all the comforts of home. Patio & deck overlooking spring fed pond with barbeque pit and perfect spot for camp fires. Stocked with everything you need, just bring your clothes, food & fishing gear. Even has canoes and life jackets. Great fishing lake and river access, what more could you ask for? Five 18/19 year old boys spent 4 days and never left the property! Ready to go back!
