Secluded stone house overlooking Beaver Lake on a family preserve along Sinking Creek, only 15 miles from the Current River. Watch hummingbirds, herons, muskrats and beaver in summer and fall asleep to the harmony of whippoorwills, frogs and crickets. Sit by the fire in the winter and listen to the coyotes.
Open kitchen, dining and living room with a large deck great for outdoor dining in season. Tour the 18,000 log Ozark Forest Mushroom farm and get fresh produce when available!
Situated on a spring-fed lake in the Big Springs Region of the Missouri Ozarks, Beaver Lake Guest House is a completely furnished house nestled in a pine grove on a 3,000 acre family preserve along Sinking Creek in Shannon County. Timber Farms, The Sinks is a working farm which includes a Shiitake Mushroom Log Operation (across the creek from the house) along with a permaculture vegetable garden and pasture/hay operation. Tours of the Mushroom Farm can be arranged with prior notice. The farm name comes from a geological formation on the property where the creek takes a short cut through a 400 foot limestone cave forming a natural bridge locally known as The Sinks.
The house is 24 miles south of Salem and 19 miles north of Eminence close to the Ozark National Scenic Riverways Current River area. The Nature Conservancy has designated the Big Springs area of the Missouri Ozarks as one of the Last Great Places.
