The Stewart Settlement was once an old dairy farm. A lot of labor of love is going into this property to restore the land and make homestead the way things used to be. Home of some gorgeous rolling wooded hills, we want to preserve the land and help it reach its full potential without clearing it all for housing developments or commercial farming. We believe in getting back to the land, back to nature. There are several fields used for our livestock which we rotationally graze. We want to share our farm and our experiences with anyone who wants to learn. Learn more about this land: Experience a night of "off the grid" glamping with modern decor. The repurposed shipping containers are well insulated and climatized to create the perfect bunk with all the essentials you could need. The outdoor living space has ample room to roam, play, cook, and enjoy. Enjoy the serene country setting and countless stars while being a short drive from the city life. Explore the farm, get to know the farmer, and enjoy the slowed down pace of The Stewart Settlement.

Lacy has a great event space set up here! We spent the night on our cross country road trip in October, pretty much at the end of hosting season. The shipping container stayed warm and the bed was super cozy, We parked a few feet from the container so grabbing stuff out of the car was easy. The event area with fire pits and seating is lovely, but it was a little too cold for us to sit by the fire or hang out in the kitchen container. Glad we brought take out as there is a grill and a microwave in the kitchen area, but no stove or heating element in the sleeping area. We'd love to come back in the summer with a little more time to enjoy a fire and the sky full of stars!

Stop looking and stay here!!
We stopped over on our way to a family wedding. It was an amazing night! We were blown away by everything. The accommodations were amazing and comfortable. We toured the farm and had a great time checking out all the animals (we are city people so this was new to us!). I definitely recommend staying here if you get the chance!

I booked this stay because my 21-yr old son loves the concept of shipping container homes and we were celebrating his birthday. The facility was mostly what we expected and we had a great time.

The Stewart Settlement was beautiful! It was perfect place to host our first annual Friendsgiving. Fun and inviting, with plenty of room for our group of six. It was pretty cold at night but the fire pit and space heater kept us very comfortable. I look forward to visiting the farm again!

Perfect spot for a much-needed getaway with our kids. We hiked at Ha Ha Tonka, fished at Bennett Springs, and enjoyed the serenity of this idyllic setting each evening with campfires and board games. Kids loved the farm animals and we all unplugged for a truly relaxing and rejuvenating trip!

What a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend we spent at The Stewart Settlement (Midwest Shipping Container)! It is as beautiful as the pictures and as comfortable too. My son and I stayed as part of a larger group of friends. While most of our group are experienced campers, we are not, but we were very comfortable sleeping in the smaller container unit, in the cool AC. The setting was perfect for my relaxing, but also for the kids to play, visit the farm animals and take short hikes & explore the property. Our hosts couldn’t have been lovelier and we can’t wait to visit again!

Our group's visit to the Stewart Settlement was excellent. We had a large group, 6 families in total and we rented out all available sites to have ourselves our very own private camp site. The Stewart Settlement contains two shipping containers for sleeping (one smaller, one larger) plus a second container as the food prep-kitchen area. The containers for sleeping are super comfortable and have mini-fridge in each. In addition, they had an already set up beautiful tent with a VERY comfortable bed and great furniture. There was also space to set up additional tents. Behind the shipping containers there are two port-a-john's and sink for bathroom. No running water in the kitchen at this time, but that wasn't a problem as it is a short distance to the sink to wash dishes. The best part about the space for us was the common area - an extra large sized covered area. On a H-O-T weekend we managed to stay cool thanks to this always present shade and the awesome inflatable pool that the hosts filled with water for our kids to stay cool in all day. The only challenge, and easily overcome, is access to water. The hosts brought a hose up from the house and we were able to use it fill our water needs when needed. Our hosts were super. They showed our children around the farm, including the goats, pigs, ducks, rabbits, chickens, etc. There were hiking trails on the property. We didn't need to leave our oasis once! The amenities at the site really helped us minimize what we needed to pack and helped us maximize our enjoyment! We would absolutely recommend this site, and our group discussed returning again soon.

The Stewart Sttlement was absolutely amazing and exactly what we were looking for. Lacy and her children were so kind and helpful with everything we needed. We got to tour the farm and play with the baby farm animals. The unit itself was flawless, as large and clean as any hotel room with a queen size bed, couch, chairs, kitchenette, ac/heat and more. We loved the whole thing and will be back again very soon!!

The Midwest Shipping Container did not disappoint. Even on the coldest day of the year. My boyfriend and I wanted a night off the grid and glamping to ring in the new year and decided this gem was just what we were looking for. The place had everything we needed to cook both a full dinner and breakfast. Lacy had a grill we used along with all the plates and cutlery. She was even kind enough to walk up to say hello, show us around and told us she would wash the dirty dishes since the temperature was so cold! The biggest downfall to the night was the outdoor facilities, but only because it was below zero. The porta potty is immaculate and has a hand washing station right next to it. The grounds are done wonderfully to spend time outside the containers. We didn't brave the cold and cozier up inside; working on one of the puzzles Lacy had stocked in the container. Overall, we enjoyed our subzero glamping experience! We are looking forward to returning to the shipping container in warmer weather to experience all of its glory.

I can't rave enough about our experience at the Stewart Settlement. Not only was the property amazingly beautiful (pictures don't do it justice,) but the hosts were lovely and gracious. We stayed in the larger of the two spaces in the shipping container. It had a mini-fridge, and they left us a bottle of cold water and some apples. The futon was a bit small, but thankfully, we brought a nice airmattress with us that worked really well. There was an ac/heating unit in the room, so we were always comfortable. The bathroom area has a porta-potty behind the container, with a sink with a tank of running water. This is really the "glamping" part of the experience. However, the facilities were extremely clean - I've never used a porta-potty that smelled like lavender! And they were immediately behind the room, so it wasn't exactly roughing it. The pavilion is gorgeous and the gem of the experience. It's a shared space, along with the bathroom and separate shipping container for the "kitchen." However, as we were the only guests, we had it to ourselves. There were lovely spaces with firepits and furniture around, tons of twinkle lights, electricity for our music, and they left us plenty of firewood and kindling to enjoy a lot of outdoor time by the fire. So relaxing and beautiful. The kitchen area next to the pavilion included a propane grill, a coffee maker, and a hot plate. There were plates, mugs, some utensils, and a cast iron skillet safe for the hotplate. We cooked while we were there, and we had brought all of our supplies from home. I would still plan to do that if you know you need something special. There wasn't any wifi, and my cellphone reception was spotty (ATT.) However, I enjoyed unplugging, as it were. That said, my partner has Verizon, and he had good reception. We packed for a camping trip, not quite knowing what to expect. In hindsight, I could have brought a lot less. I didn't need lanterns, as much cooking gear, etc... All-in-all, we had a wonderful and relaxing time. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an easier get-away than camping can provide.

Dustin and Lacy Stewart have completely remodeled the inside of a shipping container for the perfect Glamping trip! It comes with a mini fridge, coffee pot, hot plate, electric, a/c, heat, and a futon style couch to sleep on with all the linens provided. But there is plenty of room in there to inflate an air mattress if you prefer one. For cooking, there is the hot plate in the room, and a propane/charcoal grill at the pavilion in which they generously provided propane and firewood. We had a lovely evening of steaks with our favorite beer from Mothers Brewing Company in the city of Springfield, only 30min away. On their 50 acre farm you can meet there big dog Bella along with pigs, chickens, sheep, and even a donkey. We even got to feed the pigs some rotten apples from their orchard. This is the perfect countryside getaway for the modern Glampers!
