We ended up having to cancel out on them. Due to mechanical probs with our camper. They were very helpful prior and communicated very well. Really looked forward to staying there.

I think I qualify as a "regular" now... Beacon is my go-to getaway for camping. I have had all of the variety experiences here: a solo trip with a peaceful campfire to myself, a group trip and a gaggle of fun people, including the host(s) enjoying fireside chats, helping in the garden or milking goats, and my recent trip was just me and the hosts enjoying good fellowship and marshmallows.
This is a safe, peaceful place, complete with a lovely trail to a little waterfall and swing. A great place to sit under the stars, read a good book, share in spiritual conversation, or have some thinking room.
Thankful for this gift of a place!

The spot we had was perfect! Surrounded by all of natures beauty, in a lush green forest. It's very private, quiet and lovely. Even the drive into the farm was gorgeous. Our family enjoyed our time spent here and would recommend 10/10.

Dinner is served Cool fire pit!The perfect spot

Such a great stay! The location is beautiful and the hosts have such a great heart for their community. My girls loved all the animals and getting to feed the baby goats when we arrived! Thanks for a wonderful stay, Beacon!

What a fabulous little spot hidden in the Missouri bluffs outside St. Joseph! These folks are good hearted doing good things for their community and one should feel blessed to be a part of this experience.

I wish I'd more time to walk the trails on the surrounding acreage... and if I didn't have to leave so quickly the next morning, breakfast by the campfire watching the clouds break would have been perfect.

The compost toilet is super clean and the water from the spigot tastes great and both amenities are close by. Pack it in, pack it out.
