Down in the Country

Last week, my husband and I were able to escape to a wonderful little place that I want to share with you.
We spent the night at Julia's Shady Rest Bed and Breakfast. It has a rustic appeal, with big city pampering. It is about 45 minutes East of Kansas City, MO, and only 6 minutes north of I-70.  It is located between Odessa and Lexington.

We arrived early in the evening, and realized our mistake.  The place is gorgeous!  We regret not being able to explore the lake and surrounding area more than we did.  Here are a few of the things we found appealing.
Imagine watching this while relaxing in the country.

These guys were pretty interested in us.

In addition to being able to spend some time in the beautiful surroundings, you may want to explore the local points of interest.  They are located near wineries, orchards, and if you are a interested in the civil war, you will need to visit Lexington, MO which has a historic battle site.

Did I mention that it was a bed and breakfast?  The breakfast spread was wonderful.  Julia is a fabulous cook, and when I come back I am definitely requesting her homemade cinnamon rolls! (You can't eat just one!)

So pick up the phone and make your reservations for a relaxing weekend get away--just be sure to arrive early enough to enjoy the beauty of the place.  Tell them Linda sent you!
