“Taking the time time breath”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

As we all know life is pretty hectic at times, we forget the important things, how to appreciate one another and just the beauty of everyday life. Our stay was a well needed breath of fresh air. The view so beautiful, we felt very welcome and at home. Look forward to future visits.

Ximena and I are very pleased that we could make your stay with your husband and four legged friends at the Circle O Lodge a very enjoyable one! As we are in the "Winter Thaw" we can see by the tracks in the infamous Missouri mud that they had a great time! Duke our Beagle is having the same fun right now!
We look forward to having you back as guests with the children whether two legged or four! Just let us know when you are coming and we will leave the gate open and the lights on! Kindest regards, Michael & Ximena

We are very appreciative of your review and your connection with the spirit of the Circle O and what we have tried to accomplish with it, but we must admit, mother nature has made the biggest contribution! We will take credit for the utensils and sharp knives in the kitchen!
Looking forward to having you back again!

“Nice Little Getaway”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We went there in October leaving from St. Louis. It's about three hours away. It was easy to find with a GPS.

Once we arrived, the gate was open and we drove to the house. The land is expansive, since I think it is also a tree farm too. The house is nice. It is wood, and kind of has a modern log cabin feel. Inside it was clean, and the kitchen was stocked with almost anything you might need: stove, dishwasher, crockpot, knives, utensils, cups, bowls, pyrex storage, etc., etc. Also, they have several things in the pantry if you have forgotten anything, and all they ask is that you leave a few dollars if you use some of their pantry items.

Besides the stocked kitchen, there is also an impressive amount of items to keep you busy on your vacation. They have binoculars, a bow and arrow set, DVD player, DVD's, games, etc.

And besides all of those things, there are several other nice additions. Things like lanterns, and towels to dry off a pet if it gets wet. All the little things show that the owners are very thoughtful and want your trip to be as nice as possible. Instead of a stark cabin, it feels more like a home.

The cabin itself has an open plan kitchen / dining area with a large bench-style table. It is good to put things on or can accommodate a large group. There is a small living room directly adjacent to the kitchen with a small sitting area. There is one master bedroom downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. The master has a queen bed and the rooms upstairs both have bunk-beds and a single bed.

There are two and a half bathrooms in the cabin. There is also a washer / dryer near the half bath.

It was a nice / roomy place to stay with five people, but having only one queen bed, it is geared more toward a large family than a group.

There is central heat, and we needed it the weekend we were there.

Outside, there is a fire pit and there is a nice amount of chopped wood ready to burn. With a wood cabin, I can see why they have a fire pit with thick concrete blocks about two feet high, but it's a bit of a hindrance to making a warm fire. We had to make a pretty big fire to get any heat coming off of it, and I almost felt bad burning as much wood as we did. (Still, we left some money in their piggy bank to make up for it)

It's a pretty laid back place to go and have a camping type of experience with the benefit of having a house next to you. The grounds are big, so you can explore or go fishing in one of their lakes. The town of Marceline is nearby, and you can spend an afternoon there going to see the Walt Disney museum. It's a really small town though, so it's only going to take a few hours.

We enjoyed our weekend there. It was comfortable, the house had everything we wanted, the fact that there is no TV was kind of nice, making us get out of the house, walk around, make fires at night, and have the right tools to make some good meals. If you're looking to get away to the country, but still have the comforts of home, this place fits the bill.

We are very appreciative of your review of the Circle O Lodge. Indeed we do try to make the lodge as comfortable as possible and make you feel at home. We hope that you had the chance to explore the 60 acres on which the lodge is situated and walk the trails.
Thanks for your four star rating, it means a lot to us. Your comments on how we could earn that 5th star would most appreciated. Thanks for allowing us the opportunity to have you as our guests. Kindest regards,
Michael & Ximena
