The Mountain House For Sale

Setting up this listing has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done in Real Estate. This has been our home for the last 24 years. Our whole family has lived on Palomar since 2017 when our son Brandon, his wife Heidi and the kids bought the ranch next door. Son Nathan, owns Cabin Fever Vacation Rental and moved to Snuggle Inn, our guest apartment so we’ve had the best years of our lives. But, a farm in Missouri was calling to Brandon’s family and they just had to make their own. They talked about us joining them. I initially thought we’d be part-time. Our Treasures (those four, amazing, free range grandkids) were concerned we might stay behind. I do believe they were set up by their parents last Fall. Each of them showed up at different times. Running down the path from their ranch above us and skipping along our stone steps I would hear “GramBonnie, GramBonnie”. Then they got around to their heart gripping questions. It went something like this:

“GramBonnie, well, you know we are moving to Missouri. It is a very long way away. You are moving too, right? You’re going to live there, too, right?”

What would you say? My only response was, “Of course, my Darling, of course”.

They moved the first of the year, now it is our turn. This is so bitter-sweet. We love Palomar Mountain. We love our friends and all the fun times with such happy memories to cherish. I’ve enjoyed helping so many of you with your properties with this wonderful career. But we do have a home waiting for us there now. (I signed the papers and the cowboy didn’t even know!!!) I still haven’t even seen it and am so excited for this new chapter in our lives. The men-folk have taken several road trips with loads of stuff. We are now thinned out a bit here and as ready as we’re going to be, to open the door and meet the new owners of The Mountain House.

  1. I like that! 🥰 we can’t wait for you to come out here!

    • Thank you my darling. Can hardly wait to see you and your farm and all that Missouri has to offer!

  2. Hi Bonnie!!!  Big move you have coming up.  What part of Missouri you guys moving to?  I am looking to move out of California also.  Please let me know –  Take care and God Bless –  Rich Frisk

    • Hello Rich, We bought a home the first of the year in Rogersville. 15 minutes south of Springfield and 45 minutes to Branson. 1 to 2 inches of snow and some rolling hills close by so the tornados apparently are more attracted to the flat areas. (Our place does have an escape room just in case). Our son Brandon and his family bought a farm 15 minutes away in Fordland. Lots more info to share if you’d like.
