Beckham Creek Cave interior

"A "luxurious cave" may sound like the ultimate contradiction. This property, built into the Ozark Mountains, features natural rock walls and ceilings as well as Jacuzzi bathtubs and large windows for letting in light. Built as a Cold War bomb shelter by John Hay, founder of Celestial Seasonings tea, it's now a base from which to hike, bike and explore local springs." - Forbes Magazine

Beautiful but way to wet!!! Could be my dream home, if it was built in dry stone. The lime stone sucks!!! I would really like a stream running through it, but a constant stream of water from the ceiling and off the walls is way too much!!! If you did not have webs between your toes when you moved in you soon would have!!!!

Needs color - why make the furniture the same color as the rock? Why not some emerald green, deep orange, or red?

I am not a fan of cave living, however, I wanted to see the inside of this. The bedrooms are nice but I would be extremely claustrophobic. I am just wondering if the noise is a continual problem ?

Costs a hell of a lot to maintain and to prevent toxic mold exposure. Probably a lot of drywall changing, air filtering, towels and buckets. God knows what more

Worst tour video ever. You took a really cool location and destroyed it with poor filming and audio skills. Several areas makes the viewer completely nascious while you focus camera in and out. The entire ordeal was painstakingly, mind numbingly annoying to watch add the random phone talker echoing over what sounds like a station that has gone off air for the night. PS wow, Why were we watching a helicopter on a pad? #Fail #MissedOpportunity

This video was made over 8 years ago.. And if it wasn't for this person taking their time to make it, you wouldn't have even had a chance of seeing inside this place.. If you didn't like the video, then go watch something else.. And as for the audio, if you don't like it, there's a mute for that.. I can't stand self serving ungrateful people..

friendinspirit is right. I know I’m late to this video but the quality is very bad to say the least. Spent way too much time zooming in and out and way too much time panning. Ridiculous

I have always loved caves, but this? I'll bet an awful lot of people would be begging for a copter ride outta there after only one sleepless night in all that noise and dampness. Some mold-proof artificial carpet and fake plant life might soften it up, at least maybe a little. It looks cold, wet, stark, and depressing. Not just being green with envy here. This really does not look comfy.
jacob R. (1 year ago)
I think it's a matter of what different people like, granted the dampness would get annoying, other than that a guy like me would be just fine here. Plus it could become a chick magnet

What the hell happened to the sound ??? It's like standing next to a power saw!!!! If you have no narration or interesting local sounds, remove the audio and replace it with muzak.

With the exception of the water coming through the top of the cave and the dampness, I would love to live there in the seclusion!
Don Wilson (4 years ago)
It is obvious that this is a natural cave with a stream running through it. Humidity up around 90%, hence all the fans. Also a live cave will always have upper ground water seeping through the cave ceiling, hence a few buckets. On the plus side, they will always have water and constant comfortable temps. The down side is the dampness that never goes away, the constant need to filter the air due to mold spores, and very hi maintenance.
Wynand Koegelenberg (4 years ago)
Uhmmmm, no thanks. Very interesting but NO! Too noisy with the constant running water. Way too damp: buckets, buckets everywhere. Fans everywhere. It is just damp and moist and dark everywhere! Is this Aquaman's summer house?

Architecture, being my initial field of interest, I find cave homes to be very evocative.  Speaking to our primal genetic memory, caves beckon us to retreat into their cool depths.  Especially in more recent times, it has become somewhat of a fad.  Before our ancestors emerged from the calm sturdy rock, we feared the extreme temperatures of our season's and had not yet mastered the wild.  Since, we tilled and travelled the globe, have revelled in the light and danced on the oceans, soared toward the stars and unravelled the macro and the micro. In the process, no doubt, many of us have forgotten our origins.  Most even regard our ancestral cousins as like children, excusing their practices, rituals and commonplace as rudimentary.  However, I would challenge you to imagine if you were born in a cave, which a society of parents that also were born of the same, without the concept or need for complex language and technology to survive, you might very well live out your life, very closely resembling them.  In more recent years, our society has displayed increased fear of total annihilation.  We see traitors at every turn: in our food, on our doorstep, amongst our colleagues and within ourselves.  It is understandable that our reaction is to retreat to the one place we regard as ultimate safety.  Toward the common womb, our supreme mother earth. In this artists view, I have been observing a similar resurgence in the interest of the cave home.  And just like above ground homes, the interior decoration varies greatly.  However, the design choices in this home's mix of modern and organic generates confusion.  If the walls were ground down and polished, promoting undulating smooth surfaces instead of ragged, uneven calcifications, I would make more sense.  In it's current state I am left depleted and unimpressed.  Even just a change in decor, using more rustic and natural elements, would present a marriage of concepts instead of this blatant conflict.

oh and where you have seepage you could put a koi pond , you open the front and put greenery add softer furniture and nic naks , a few pictures a soft rug of some kind , out side get some planting done that is harmonious and does not look too planted , the water could have had an outside koi pond some planting too , water lilies such but have the water do something generate power for one thing , could be amazing sadly its a fail
Jita'ame suluma (5 years ago)
i agree this is a really unloved home no heart in it no family no feeling and so badly decorated , impersonal and dark if they had put a front of pure solar glass and had not tried so hard to look rich they would not look so nouveau , style is not automatic just coz u have money , some one needs to throw all that furniture away its cold heartless and worse ugly , it makes me cry inside imagine what this could look like with the money they have but good taste and the potential to energy save
Stephen Tucker (5 years ago)
No offense, but to me it looks like a lot of money was dumped into the project and the outcome was...ehhhh...not so great. Cheers to whoever did it though, im sure that they are very proud of their work and it is very very impressive.
