As I drove along the winding roads of the countryside, I stumbled upon a small red shanty with a sign that read "Red Shanty BBQ & Roadside Cafe." Intrigued, I pulled over and was immediately greeted by the mouth-watering aroma of smoked meats. Upon entering, I was warmly welcomed by the friendly staff and the rustic charm of the interior.

It's alright……. go ahead…...relax on the large front porch, on the sunny patio, or in the lush green grass, sipping your favorite beverage. You can actually hear the sounds of being away from city life: birds singing their songs, an occasional squirrel scurrying about, and the wind moving through the trees. At night, gaze up at a sky full of stars. Red Shanty Lodging and RV/Tent Sites are your spot for get-a-way lodging in the heart of relaxing and picturesque rural outskirts of Higginsville, Missouri. For reservations contact Annette at 660.909.5573 or by email.

a prairie style farm house built in 1920 surrounded by acres of row crop farm land. There are 3 roomy bedrooms to choose from with original large windows, great for viewing the farm. The farm house has been carefully renovated to recapture the charm of a bygone era. This is not an Airbnb....this is a true Bed & Breakfast where you are served an old fashioned, hearty, country style breakfast. 

'Ain't She Cute'
a super cute vintage style travel trailer that has been completely renovated with uniquely sweet charm. It's the perfect country retreat to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
