Ah, the country. In an age of Blackberrys and iPhones, many Americans yearn to escape from 24/7 connectedness and frenzied multitasking to return to the simple charms of country living.” Owners Matt & Tina Reichert are frequently reminded by their guests just how very special these simple pleasures are. Tina goes on to say, “It is quite an honor to be featured in Missouri Life. What is much more satisfying is the exposure this will give to Brunswick. We love where we live and thoroughly enjoy the privilege of sharing our home, farm, and community with others. We hope this article will bring many visitors to our area.” Click here to read a PDF version of the article.
