Red Brick Farmhouse is a country retreat nestled in the heart of the picturesque rural outskirts of Higginsville, Missouri. This 1920's prairie style farmhouse, with its original 9 1/2 foot ceilings and old pine floors has been carefully renovated to recapture the charm of a bygone era. Upon entering the farmhouse you are first greeted by the charming front porch, perfect for relaxing and viewing the yard with its dozens of large mature trees and surrounding pastures and fields. John and Hilda's Room offers a king size, antique, walnut bed with a Stearns and Foster mattress and a quaint sitting area for two. Emma's Room features a queen size, antique, brass bed, sitting area, and a writing desk. Edwin's Room has a queen size, antique, Eastlake bed plus an additional twin size bed. The farmhouse also offers a large dining room and living room just for our guests, with a fireplace and a flat screen television with a DVD player for your personal enjoyment. Located just a short drive from the Confederate State Park, Missouri State Veterans Cemetery, and Civil War Sites, Higginsville is situated in central Lafayette County. In addition to historic sites, numerous of Missouri's finest wineries and orchards are nearby. Take a drive or ride on the Old Trails Road Scenic Byway, Route 24, for a car or motorcycle tour that will reset your pace from city life.

Wonderful Get-Away

5 on October 20, 2016

My friend and I stayed here for a girls' weekend and it was absolutely everything we could have wanted! The house itself is full of interesting, charming, and unusual decorations. Probably the cleanest place I have stayed. Every amenity had been thought of by the owners. They go above and beyond in all aspects. We stayed in Edwin's Room which has two beds. This and the two other bedrooms on the upper level are decorated in period appropriated decor and are comfortable and homey. The bathroom is super big and has a great claw-footed tub with an added shower. The two breakfasts we had there were simply delicious! I would highly recommend the Red Brick Farmhouse to anyone who wants a country get-away and great service.

I Only Wish I Lived Closer!

Some of our plans fell through and we were needing a place to stay in this area of Missouri. I found this B&B on your website and couldn't have been happier! This place might be one of the best B&Bs where I ever stayed. The pictures on the website were completely as shown and Annette and Kenton couldn't have been any nicer! We stayed in John & Hilda's room and loved looking out the windows onto the back of the property. The front porch is extremely inviting and we sat out there until it got dark on Friday and then sat on it again on early Saturday. The grounds are just so peaceful and this B&B is an absolute hidden gem! We used the WIFI and had no problems connecting. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and we enjoyed hearing stories from the owners about the history of the area and how they got into the business. I only wish this place was closer to home so I could stay there more frequently. Please do yourself a favor--treat yourself to a peaceful getaway and you won't be disappointed! I'm hoping that, someday, that I'll be able to return here!

Lovely Country Farmhouse

4.0 on May 15, 2016

Enjoyed our stay at this lovely farmhouse out in the country. So peaceful and quiet, cows in the pasture across the road, and you can hear many birds singing in the trees. Enjoyed a very nice breakfast, and visit with the owners. Would definitely stay there again. The Engelbrecht's from Colorado.
