“Beautiful, peaceful cabin! We have traveled to Arkansas many times over the last 15 years or so, mostly with our two girls in tow. Now starting a tradition just with the two of us. Weather was perfect, directions were easy, cabin was well stocked with the best ever porch. Saw seven deer the first night, only two or three after that. Great sunsets! Thanks for making it a fun trip.” –The Zeppa family

“Thank you so much, the cabin was perfect, this is our second trip. We had a wonderful day at the Buffalo River and we enjoyed fishing in the pond next to us, MO fish, but fun! Thank you so much for this wonderful place.” –The Dwins family from Kansas City, MO

“What a wonderful and relaxing week for my family. A great place to experience the changing relationship with my son and to forge an adult relationship with him. The dogs had the time of their life and I appreciate the total privacy we were given. We’ll be back again.” –The Addens Family from Memphis, TN

“We loved our stay here at the cabin. It was exactly what we needed to get away from the crazy fast pace of life and the city. I’d stayed before with my family… I was happy to share it now with my husband. It was a perfect honeymoon! The cabin is so cozy and peaceful…and the view on the way here was breathtaking. How can a week go so quickly?! Thank you for the wonderful stay we had. It was worth every penny! Thank you!” –Girrens Family from Colwich, KS
