Hix Cabin---Ozark Missouri
One of the most memorable weekends I can remember was spent at this wonderful cabin located in Macks Creek, MO. The owners of the property Nora and Johnny Hix were friendly,
helpful and honestly some of the kindness people I've had the pleasure to meet. In October of 2007 we decided to spent our 20th Anniversary getting back to nature. The cabin here is absolutely beautiful, complete with fireplace and loft. There is a wrap-around porch with views of the lake and nearby timber. Fishing is allowed on the lake and we caught many nice catfish which we dined on in the evenings. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a BBQ grill outside for all your grilling needs. The bathroom has a large clawfoot bathtub which was great for soaking and relaxing. Bring the wine and plan to spend a cozy night in the hot tub on the outer deck under the stars. Want to stretch your legs? There is a walking trail through the nearby timber, where we spotted this adorable little box turtle eating an earthworm (if you look closely you can see part of it sticking out of his mouth) The drive back to the cabin always brought with it many deer grazing in the pastures. If you are looking for other activities there are many things nearby, including horseback riding, The Lake of the Ozarks, HA HA Tonka State Park, as well as a few caves including "Bridle Cave. If you are looking for a relaxing, quiet little getaway this is the perfect spot to consider. We will definiately go back one day.
