Come stay in the country! Spend time at the creek fishing, floating and wading. Relax on the cabin porch or enjoy fellowship around the campfire under starry skies.
Life is good at 12 Stones Farm!
Hope & Eric Bright
Leave the world of constant television and electronic interference and spend some time in a place you will WANT to remember! A real cabin and creek, real animals, real people and real nature! No "virtual reality" here!
In today's chaotic culture the ability to get away from your everyday stresses and relax in the privacy and beauty of God's creation is a fundamental necessity. At 12 Stones Farm, we want to help you experience all this and more. After 35 years of leading an agrarian life, nurturing family and relationships, raising our own food and meeting the challenges of rural living, we have come to realize the incredible value in this lifestyle. We continue to enjoy the freedom and challenges of living in the country. Now, our goal is to help others enjoy these blessings. It is a story that continues. We love sharing it…
12 Stones Cabin
Situated on 35 acres of pristine creek front property, our stone cabin is surrounded by woods and pasture. Extremely private and peaceful, yet easily accessible. Also experience a touch of farm life with chickens, milk cows and more! With private access to 1/4 mi of Swan Creek and only 30 minutes to Branson and Silver Dollar City, this cabin is a hidden gem. Dine in the screen porch and listen to the water and wildlife. Fishing, canoeing, and wading are right out your back door with private access.

Our stay couldn't have been more perfect!
For five adults, husband & wife, wife’s 2 adult sons and one girlfriend, 12 Stones Guest Farm was the perfect place to relax, spend time together and have loads of fun. We delightfully felt no need not leave the farm during our stay to find activities or entertainment or food elsewhere. There was no way to do all the myriad of available activities we could have at 12 Stones Farm. Eric and Hope are absolutely wonderful hosts. The guest cabin was so comfortable. The country quiet and fresh air put us into deep sleep every night. We loved having the time to read books and take naps if we wished. Fresh-picked blackberries made the perfect blackberry cobbler. All needed ingredients were in the kitchen. We laughed our way through croquet, some having never played the game. The provided ingredients for s’mores were delightfully consumed after roasting marsh mellows over the camp fire. We “helped” the milk cows and bucket calves and gathered eggs. What a treat it was to have real, fresh cream for our coffee. None of us had fishing experience, but two of us had fun trying and were delighted to catch and release two willing fish. All of us felt so blessed to be in such a relaxing place. We will be staying at 12 Stones Farm again, hopefully soon.
12 Stones Farm is a piece of Heaven on Earth! The guest house is clean, comfy and had everything you could want for a relaxing getaway. We enjoyed the hot tub, outside shower and screened in porch daily. The creek is a sight to see! The water so clean and the sound of it moving so peaceful. The farm animals were fun to watch and listen to. We enjoyed our fresh eggs, milk and zucchini that Eric and Hope shared with us. They truly love what they are doing and it shows. 12 Stones Farm is a wonderful place to stay!!
A cozy cabin on a working family farm with doting hosts and quick access to Branson.
My family and I were looking for a unique Branson experience for our 3 and 4 year old sons, and we found that and more with Eric and Hope’s 12 Stones Farm. If you are looking for a unique family vacation or get away for two, I highly recommend this quiet slice of God’s Country. Situated on 35 acres, there is plenty of space to explore and enjoy. The cabin has a fully equipped kitchen with complimentary eggs and milk (from the farm of course). There are plenty of board games for inside days or outside games like; frisbee golf, croquet, lawn darts, horse shoes, paddle boat and tons of balls to toss around. The 1/4 mile of private access to Swan Creek is awesome for a kayak float trip or a dip to cool off. Pro Tips: – Leave your phone on airplane mode. – Use bug spray liberally if you are walking around the farm. – Chore with the hosts in the morning and/or evening. Our kids love it! – Bring your own laundry detergent. – Bring water socks for the creek. – Amazing bird watching at the large living room window. Nice to Know: – Good cell service available but no Wi-Fi My Favorite Thing: – Waking up early while everyone is sleeping and sitting out on the screen porch sipping my coffee. A truly peaceful beginning to the day.

It felt like home
We cannot say enough about the farm and the time we had there. This place is perfect. Not only was is absolutely lovely, every small details enhances your stay. Everything was honestly perfect. We only went into town to get groceries and just stayed and enjoyed the cabin, outdoors, books, all the games and cool things to do. Hope and Eric have done an amazing job of making sure every little thing is so great. They were easy to communicate with and beyond helpful. Most of our interactions were with Eric, as hope was enjoying family over the holiday weekend, but she was everywhere from the thoughtful touches and seeing her and heart poured into the cabin. When we reflected on the weekend, we decided that our favorite part was seeing their memories and life all around the cabin. It truly was one of the most unique and wonderful Airbnb experiences, it felt like home. My only advice for guests consider booking is to book as long as you can and bring groceries to cook dinner because you honestly will not want to leave. We cannot wait to return with our kids and enjoy!

We booked on VRBO and couldn’t be happier with our stay. It rained almost our whole stay and it didn’t bother us one bit. The last day we.got to explore the old trail along the water and it made me want to move right on in. So peaceful and serene. We cant wait to come back during warmer months to get in the water. The cabin was so clean and has everything you need. Very grateful that they open up their property and share it with everyone.
In our desire to find a private get-away to celebrate our anniversary, my wife and I searched to find a cabin near Branson yet far enough away to enjoy some very real peace and quiet and seclusion. What we found at the end of the trail at 12 Stones Farm, far and away exceeded our expectations. Even though we arrived late on a chilly Friday night, Eric had the pellet stove fired up and awaiting our arrival. The cabin is full of surprises and Hope and Eric truly go above and beyond to think of everything to make our stay an experience to remember. We hadn’t been there for more than half a day before we had already started to figure out when we could plan our next trip back. Thanks again for your hospitality Hope & Eric! Hope to see you again soon! Steve & Suzanne

What a great place to just get away! Kathy and I stayed here in Sept. 2016, and again Oct.2018. The cabin and grounds are a testament to the extra mile Eric and Hope put in to ensure your stay will be memorable. There are a million little things they do that bear witness to their hands and their hearts. This is a labor of love, and if you stay here, you will see that for yourselves. Everywhere you look, there is that something extra; from the heart log outside, to the heart stones on the window sill. Gotta love the fresh eggs and milk, too. I even found a duck egg-it was delicious! Thank you both for a great time. The guests that stayed part of the week with us would like to return as well.
Awesome family getaway
We loved every minute of our stay. The cabin had everything we needed and was so adorablely decorated. We felt right at home. Our kids jumped up early in the morning beyond excited to help with all of the farm chores. Hope and Eric were so kind, patient, and welcoming. We all fell in love with the farm and can’t wait to go back.
Relaxed and Renewed
Having only heard about the beauty of Missouri, we were excited to see it for ourselves. It did not disappoint! The cabin is situated between an amazing little working farm and a picturesque river. Hope and Eric thought of everything guests might need or want and left no detail undone – including fresh eggs and milk/sweet cream. The location, the cabin, the atmosphere and the hosts were more than we hoped for. Thank you for the opportunity to “Be Still.”

The hosts with servants hearts!
I’ve always been pretty good at putting my thoughts on paper, but there are just some things that prove to be impossible to describe. I will attempt to tell you all about the most beautiful farm I’ve ever visited, graced with the most hospitable hosts, and the warmest and homiest cabin I have had the privilege of sleeping in. 12 Stones Farm, owned and operated by Eric & Hope Bright, had many, many excellent reviews, so my husband and I decided to give it a try. My husband contacted Eric and he was able to accommodate us for ten nights. We (my husband, my best friend, and three of our youngest children ages 4, 6, and 7) arrived at the farm on a Monday morning, almost midday, to the most beautiful landscape accompanied by this wonderful feeling and sigh of relief that this was exactly where we were meant to be. As we drove in past the beautiful pond on the left with two chairs placed ever-so-perfectly on the well-manicured lawn, six ducks waddling right near the driveway, several bee hives nestled behind the pond under a tree, we approached a pasture with a beautiful jersey cow and a few calves, one which was the whitest white and blackest black cow I have ever seen. I’m telling you, everything here is almost surreal. As we rounded the curve, we saw some beautiful chickens and turkeys…..and then, right before our eyes was the quaintest cabin whose pictures had done it no justice. I kept thinking to myself, “is this real life?” The children were giddy with excitement, okay, so maybe the adults were too, so we all jumped out of the truck and entered the cabin to find our rooms. Well, I was actually scoping out the kitchen, but isn’t that what most moms do? We found exactly what we were expecting PLUS much, much more!! We had already figured out the sleeping arrangements, but did not realize exactly how beautiful the cabin was. Every small detail from each framed cross-stitched piece made by Eric’s mom, to antique quilts, crocks, doilies, lamps, piles of games for the kids, rocking chairs facing the picture window with binoculars, mounds of extra pillows, and fresh towels and wash cloths for indoors and outdoors. It was like coming to grandmother’s house. They were even so kind as to leave us a lemonade packet with a pitcher and four glasses, fresh eggs in the fridge, every utensil, cookware, dinnerware, flatware, and spice you need to prepare many meals. Yesssss, there are sharp knives and a cast iron skillet and a blender and cutting boards and casserole dishes. I could go on and on, but I’m sure you understand what I’m getting at, we didn’t want for anything. We cooked many delicious meals during our stay. After getting settled in and taking a five hour nap (we had just traveled for 17 hours) we got up and prepared an early supper and the kids went out to help Eric and Hope with farm chores. What an exciting adventure for the children!! During our stay, the children were able to help round up the cow for milking, gather eggs, pick green beans and blueberries, and Eric even gave the kids the last three strawberries from the garden to enjoy. Over the course of ten days at the cabin we played in the river, sunbathed in the yard, fished in the pond, took many naps, played games (indoor and outdoor) visited with Eric & Hope, and were just able to really enjoy each other. We ate fresh green beans, drank fresh milk, used fresh eggs almost daily (I think we ate 3 dozen) ate fresh honey and even used the cream off the top of the milk for our coffee. We utilized the outdoor games, balls, floats, and table and chairs on the screened porch. I also made great use of the washer and dryer (almost daily). It is apparent that Eric & Hope truly enjoy serving others and their love for the Lord, each other, their farm, and their guests shines through. They were so kind to us and so patient with the children, teaching them so many things about the farm. We left the farm feeling energized, renewed, refreshed and ready to come back to the reality of policing and 9-1-1. We are truly grateful for all that these two did for our family and the quality time spent with family was invaluable. They made us feel so special even though we had never met them before. We will NEVER forget 12 Stones Farm and we hope to return very, very soon!
