Foggy Hollow Cabin

Every once in a while we all feel the need to stop and recharge ourselves.  But in this fast paced world, that’s easier said than done. It sometimes seems almost impossible to totally let go…… unless, of course, you’re distracted.

Imagine a place so beautiful and serene that you can’t help but forget about everything else.  A place where the bugle of a bull elk, the call of a pileated woodpecker, or the trickle of water as it makes its way through a river shoal are the only sounds you hear.  A place where things move at a slower pace and “the majesty of God’s creation” couldn’t be any more evident.  That place is the Buffalo National River, and in the heart of it all is Foggy Hollow Cabin.

Foggy Hollow Cabin is completely furnished, including cooking utensils, table service and flatware. There are extra linens, towels, bathroom tissue and soap in each bath and a washer and dryer in the master bath should you need to do any laundry. Daily maid service is not offered for extended stays but if you need anything just let us know. 870-446-2810

Foggy Hollow is located in Low Gap, AR between Ponca and Jasper, and sits on sixty acres overlooking beautiful Steel Creek Valley. Whether you like to hike, canoe, or just enjoy the wildlife, Foggy Hollow is conveniently located to trailheads, outfitters, and the elk herd at Boxley Valley.
