We stopped for three nights to visit family in Carl Junction. It was a short commute, and we had access to Walgreens, Lowes and Walmart in a short trip. Will stay here again! They also have a few cute gifts and specialty rubs, jellies and sauces for sale in their office.

The place is well taken care of and has quite a few flowers and antique farm implements as access. Directions seem a bit confusing but are really straight forward for tired travelers looking...
