Size Sets Hideaway Apart
When Mike and Layne Wheeler opened Wolf Creek Hideaway in 1995, they thought they had a pretty good idea of who their customers would be. “We imagined we would have couples come and stay for weekends when the weather was good for floating or hiking,” says Layne. “We weren’t dreaming big enough! This idea has taken on a life of it’s own.”
The story behind Wolf Creek Hideaway is interesting. Mike originally owned the home that his grandparents had built on the family homestead near Jasper in 1964. Encouraged by a friend who owns the nearby Red Rock Retreat, the Wheeler’s decided to remodel the home and turn it into a vacation rental. Barnwood was taken from Grandpa’s old barn to become wainscoting in the dining area. The kitchen was completely remodeled and a second bathroom was added that contained a huge, two-person Jacuzzi. Every inch of the house was redone and redecorated. The result was beautiful.
“What we learned,” says Layne, “is that our size sets us apart. We have enough beds to sleep 10 people, a fully equipped kitchen and lots of room. We are perfect for family reunions or for holiday get-togethers. Everyone loves to come, enjoy their friends and family, then go home while we clean up.” Wolf Creek Hideaway is also great for groups bringing horses. The Wheelers breed and raise champion Missouri Foxtrotters so they had the facilities. Guests can bring their horses and ride for several days, enjoying the scenic area on horseback. Mike offers to arrange a guide, or, when possible, goes with the group himself. “I’m not sure who has the most fun – Mike or our guests,” says Layne laughing.
Mike and Layne want their guests to relax and enjoy themselves during their stay. Mike, an avid channel surfer, insisted on satellite TV with almost 100 channels. They had many requests for a fireplace in the cooler months so they added a gas log fireplace with a remote control that starts the fire from anywhere in the room. Two porch swings on the wrap-around deck and a double hammock hanging under the trees outside give guests plenty of places to sit and enjoy the spectacular view of Red Rock Bluff across the valley.
Wolf Creek Hideaway is becoming something special to each of its guests. It’s a romantic getaway with a Jacuzzi and fireplace to some and a fun gathering place to others. As we say, it’s certainly more than a cabin.
