The Blanton House
The Blanton House in Ironton, MO is as quaint and serene as the town itself. Small town charm and quiet life in a time gone by is still intact here in small town America. Come get away from it all in middle Missouri. Ironton is a recreational destination close to kayaking and floating fun on the beautiful Black River with its crystal clear ozark waters loaded with smallmouth bass that makes for an anglers dream. The new bike trail takes you from just above sea level to a 4700 foot climb with outstanding views of the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. (check out Shepherd Mountain Bike Trail). The Amtrak Train Station is in town and just a short drive from the Blanton House. Close to town while still a secluded country location is what will draw you in! At select times check out the Pickin' on The Square where family and friends go to to visit and listen to music or to the farmers market to gather produce. While you're in the area checkout Elephant Rocks State Park. Elephant Rocks was formed from 1.5 billion year old granite and is a Missouri Treasure. Also be sure and checkout Johnson Shut-ins with its rushing waters. Both locations are always a crowd pleaser! You won't want to miss Millstream Gardens camping area or the white water championships held annually at the nearby St. Francois River. If golf is your thing you are just a hop, skip and a jump away from Arcadia Valley Golf & Country Club. Clearwater Lake, a true recreational lake destination, is also nearby for boating and fishing fun. You're also in an area with millions of acres of the Mark Twain National Forest lands for whitetail deer, turkey or small game hunting. Plus, unlimited hiking and outdoor beauty. The Blanton House is the perfect full time residence or weekend destination location. The charm of this home with its old school look has been preserved as it was in its early years and is a blank canvas for you to design your picture perfect southern living dream cottage.
