Legendary from the 1890's as a mule barn, perhaps providing the Army with the famous WWI Missouri Mules, it has evolved through decades to a big hay barn, antique store, restaurant, bed & breakfast, and now functions as a private residence. Maintaining the attraction and allure of a vintage Bed & Breakfast through remodeling, the building has become a landmark in the small Ozarks City of Seymour and sits on 1.25 acres of land. The interior character reflects a period long past, planks of cedar line its walls and its tin ceiling character is reproduced with decorative copper Evangeline style.
The 14' x 15' Innkeeper Suite, located downstairs, has a newly remodeled full bathroom with a walk-in closet, and was completed at the same time as the 6' x 6' public half-bath. Complementing the 5, 12' x 14' guest bedrooms on the second floor, each with a full bath, there is a 10' x 14' housekeeping room (could be an additional bedroom). At the end of the hallway, there is a closet and laundry area. Recent improvements include a new metal roof and metal siding, remodeled kitchen, a 98,000 btu Rinnai tankless water heater, Sterling water softener system with a sediment & activated charcoal filters.
We have never used it as a B&B; it is our private residence. Furnished mostly throughout, the opportunity for a quick launch as a business, in the Amish country of Webster County, is inherit; the Ozarks have broad tourist appeal. Laura Ingalls Wilder home is a short 10 miles; Baker Creek Village and Heirloom Seed Company, 17 miles; Southern Missouri Off-Road Ranch, 6 miles and a large Amish community create tourism interest. Two restaurants are adjacent properties. Seymour is showing signs of new growth, being only 30 minutes from Springfield; the opportunity for success seem significant.
We now want the ability to travel frequently and to be able to be near family.
