fabulous week by the river

Eight members of our family stayed in this wonderful location for six nights and it was everything we had hoped for and more. The cabin is just as pictured and was spotless when we arrived. The owner was very accessable and equally helpful and friendly. We will definitely give consideration to a return trip next year. Our favorite spots were sitting on the dock watching the river go by and sitting on the back porch doing the same thing. The cabin is situated in woods that give one a feeling of complete isolation and that was just what we needed. We all referred to it as home and that's just what it felt like. We loved the shabby chic decor and comfortable beds. While there, we had a guided trout fishing day on the river, went for a shopping trip to nearby Searcy, ate at Southern Girls BarBQ and Pizza Plus, and drove in to Heber Springs and had coffee at Jitterbug Coffee and did more shopping.
If you stay in this cabin and don't eat at Southern Girls, you will really be missing out. Incredible!!!!
At night we listened to the coyotes howl and the owls hoot and loved every minute of it. During the day, we were priviledged to see seven river otters playing just off the dock, a beaver walking down the river shore and two bald eagles overhead. For our nature loving family, this was just the best!
We can't recommend this place highly enough....it was that good. We have stayed in countless VRBO locations both in the U.S. and out and this one will stand out in our memories for a long time.
One other thing we did was cook a gourmet meal and eat it by candle light out on the back porch.
If you are thinking of staying in the area, please give this place consideration. We know you will not be sorry.
