“Beautiful solitude”
Reviewed 29 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

The Circle O Lodge is a true gem. My partner and I stayed here over Christmas and had a blast! The cabin is the ideal log-built getaway with top notch appliances and beautiful decor.
The cabin is placed on 60 acres all to yourself with about 4 miles of trails through wetlands, timber, and field.
We spent some time walking the property, some reading, cooking, napping, and enjoyed some holiday music throughout.
The lodge is a wonderful place to recharge. We didn't leave for 4 days and had no need to go anywhere else.

“Absolutely beautiful cabin/lodge”
Reviewed 2 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

If you're looking to get away from the world for a few days or even a few weeks, this is definitely the place to go. All your troubles will melt away during your stay here.

Even though it rained during our entire 3 days of staying, the property had many trails of varying distances, full of big beautiful trees, ponds, and many beautiful birds to watch for, like cardinals and blue jays. This place was the epitome of peace and relaxation, exactly what we were looking for. The cabin is another level of amazing, exactly like its description and a whole lot better in person!! I was more than excited to share my experiences with family and friends to tell them about this place. If I knew it was going to be so beautiful, I would have stayed even longer! We didn't want to leave!

The thing we loved the absolute most about this place was how much the owner's personalized everything to ensure those who stayed there would have no worries. Details down to lots of towels, food and condiments (if you forgot yours..), shampoos and conditioners (again, if you may have needed extra), games, movies, information on nearby attractions, firewood, etc. Even though we didn't need these items, it made us feel very comfortable to be there. I mean, the owners went above and beyond expectations. Like I previously stated, even though it rained during our entire stay, non-stop, there were more than enough things to do to keep us busy and we most definitely appreciated it. In fact, the whole time we kept saying how good of a review we had to give this place.

Although all of these things are very, very true, we do have one suggestion for the amazing owners of this property. Both upstairs and downstairs bathrooms with showers have windows that are unable to be covered. They need blinds or curtains. We felt slightly uncomfortable showering at night, because you couldn't see out, but someone could potentially see inside. Like I said, this was literally the one and only issue that we had with our stay.

Thank you so much and keep doing awesome work! We can't wait for another opportunity to visit this property again!

Sincerely and Gratefully,
Rebecca O. and Dacota W.

Thank you very much for you review of the Circle O Lodge. Your comments are gratefully appreciated and typify what we want our guest to feel like when the visit. We regret that Mother Nature decided to choose your weekend to provide us with much needed rainfall but that is the the way she works sometimes. We are glad to see that our feathered friends we visiting and provided some viewing entertainment. Concerning those window dressings on the bathroom windows; since we opened 5 years ago you are the only guest that has mentioned their concern. It is very highly unlikely that we would have anyone trekking in over the rough terrain to have a peep but nonetheless we have taken your concern to heart and we will be installing window dressings. Again thanks for your review and for choosing the Circle O Lodge for your getaway. Kindest regards, Michael & Ximena

“Hidden Oasis”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

What a fantastic place! We had no idea this place existed. We were able to visit family in New Cambria and come 'home' each night. It was so much better than being stuck in a hotel with no place to relax. The interior of this place was beautiful and had absolutely everything we could possibly need. The setting of this place is so peaceful. We definitely didn't want to leave when it was time. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much for allowing us to share in your piece of paradise. We all just loved it!

“Peaceful and private”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed for a weekend in September. The weather was perfect and the grounds were amazingly green and well cared for. The property sits far back from the road and is surrounded by trees, so you are very secluded and can relax with no distractions. The lodge is beautifully designed and decorated, and the owners thought through every detail to make the stay pleasant. We would book here again in the future and would plan to stay longer to enjoy all the amenities.

“PARADISE to say the least”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

No words can describe the wonderful experience we had in this place. I worked 15 years for Disney, and when it comes to customer service, we know a little bit. Since day one, when I met the owner, Michael and Ximena, I knew my clients would be in great hands.
My company has business programs in USA and around the globe and we stayed at this lodge when I had a business program about Walt Disney's legacy.
Anyway, you cannot go wrong staying here, especially if you like nature... I will return many times a year with my family and with my clients during my business programs and I will stay in this place any time I think about going to Marceline.
Michael, Ximena, GREAT JOB, congratulations on taking so much care of this property and above all, deep gratitude for you share with other people something so special for both of you.

“What a fantastic place to stay!!”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Me and my 6 friends and 7 greyhounds had an absolutely fabulous weekend!!! The Lodge is well stocked, well organized and has everything you could possibly want to have a wonderful time! We love the big bathrooms. The walking trails are wonderful. It is VERY pet friendly - the dog treats provided is such a personal touch! Peaceful, quiet and we were lucky with the weather. It was absolutely wonderful!! In fact, we will almost definitely be booking for next year!!

“FANTASTIC Cabin in Missouri”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My wife and 10 year old son had a great time and could not have asked for more for a weekend getaway. From the property itself to the short drive from Omaha, we had a great time. We caught 6 decent sized catfish, 1 smaller largemouth bass, and yes a larger largemouth bass but it got away(no fishing story there either). Haha Can't wait to come back once the bass have some time to get larger. Overall great cabin with everything from games inside when it is raining to utensils to bug spray to help at night. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a cabin to get away from the city like we wanted. Thank you for the wonderful stay!!

It was really nice meeting you and so pleased that you and your family had a wonderful time at the Circle O Lodge. We are also pleased that you were able to land a few nice fish and it is nice to hear that those bass are growing up. Sorry about rain, we have done our best to provide sunny stays but Ma Nature has not been cooperating as much as we would like.
We hope that you will come back to the Circle O again and join the families and friends that are making repeat stays and making the Circle O their home away from home.
All the best,
Michael & Ximena
