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.

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!
The experience is one that we will treasure for a long time to come
My sister and I stayed in the cabin over thanksgiving weekend and it was better than we could have hoped for. Hope and Eric took the time to make us feel welcome and ensure were got settled in. They also offered us the opportunity to help milk the cow and collect eggs from the chickens, which was a fun. The Cabin has a fully stocked kitchen and lots of fun board games to play in the evening. The experience is one that we will treasure for a long time to come.
A step back in time- to 'The Good Ol Days'
A lovely respite from a fast paced life! Quaint, cozy, detail perfection!! And… the beds/pillows were so comfy-reminded me of days gone by under quilts at Grandma’s house! Add to that a hot soak in the hot tub right off the bedroom- can’t think of anything better. Hope to return one day for another dose of amazing! 😉 Thanks Hope & Eric for sharing your idealic spot!
Hope and Eric were fantastic hosts
Pictures don’t do this charming little place justice. Hope and Eric were fantastic hosts, providing us with fresh milk and eggs every morning, and quick to respond if we had need of anything. This relaxing stay will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed, and we would highly recommend this stay to anyone who is traveling, or anyone simply wanting a weekend away. We will definitely be back again!
We will definitely be back!
I cannot even begin to find the words to describe our experience. The cabin is absolutely beautiful and they go above and beyond in all the details put in to it. You will be surprised at all the extras they have at the cabin if you need it! The farm was breathtaking. It was so great to come to the cabin after a long day out in the bustle of Branson. We will definitely be back!
What an AMAZING place! It was more than we expected. Eric and Hope did a fantastic job of making sure we felt welcomed and had everything we needed. My husband and I took our 4 teens with us and thought they were going to go mad without internet and tv, but we were totally wrong. We had things planned each day in Branson but the kids didn’t want to leave the Farm Cabin so we spent our days there. We kayaked even though the water was freezing, it just meant that we needed to keep our balance so we didn’t fall out of the kayak…kinda added to the excitement. We loved the fire ring which was perfect for smores and roasting hot dogs. The yard games were so much fun. It was great to learn about farm life and the animals. Everyone loved the hot tub. The kitchen was very well equipped for not only cooking meals but also baking. The beds in the loft are truly meant for children as an adult isn’t able to stand in the loft area. The kids (teens) thought it was really cool. The shower was very nice. There were lots of games that we could play which made for some great family time with lots of laughs. Overall, this place was just fantastic. We didn’t want to leave and plan to visit again in a summer coming up soon!
We will definitely be back!
This was a great stay. The farm is huge and has everything you need. We enjoyed the creek in the morning, made a fire in the afternoon and relaxed in the hot tub in the evening. The cabin is very cozy and has a full kitchen with more utensils than you need. Hope and Eric are amazing hosts and good persons. They showed my children how to milk the cows and allowed them to help with collecting the eggs. They even provided us with fresh eggs, milk and dry firewood. We had friends visit us during our stay and they received a warm welcome as well. We will definitely be back!
My family rated this as a wonderful experience!
My family rated this as a wonderful experience! Mom, my sister and I were looking for a quiet, peaceful, country cabin to visit and share the celebration of my sister’s milestone birthday. Hope and Eric provided such a place—they are very accurate in their description of their creekside home. The cabin was very clean and filled with unique treasures to view and help us recall memories of life on our family farm. The arrival was interesting because the original directions brought us in on a road that was temporarily blocked by an accident, after we called Eric and explained our dilemma, he gave us alternate directions and offered to come meet us. We followed his instructions and he met us as we approached their lane! Thank you, Eric! The amenities were just as they promised. Farm fresh eggs we could fix in the morning, beautiful soft towels for showering in the cool brick-lined shower, laundry facilities which we utilized—all of it was appreciated. They communicated well and we enjoyed visiting with them at our arrival. The location is secluded, well-designed for privacy, and full of family activities (board games, wading in the creek, fishing, hiking, sleeping, visiting)… The experience was worth every penny and yes, we have already recommended it to friends and family!
Is it really time to leave?
This cabin was just what we needed to unwind. Hope and Eric have put together a gem of a place. They were so friendly, and the fresh milk and eggs were delicious. No TV or internet, and we didn’t miss either one. Got familiar with the hammock, and just took in the surroundings. We have stayed many places over the years, but I have never felt less like a renter and more like a friend anywhere else. They have paid so much attention to detail that made the cabin even more welcoming. If we ever get the opportunity, we want to come back. Be sure to say “Hi” to Iris!
