Little Missouri Fly Fishing Cottage at 16 Factory Site Road is within 3 minutes of all the best accesses to the Little Missouri, the best kept trout stream secret in Arkansas. And for you diamond hunters, we are 5 minutes down the road from the Crater of Diamonds.
Our cottage sits secluded in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains. Cozy in the fall and winter months, just sit back and enjoy a fire in the Fisher Stove. During the fall the hardwoods on the property add just a bit of color to the 2 acre spread.
Yes, the Crater of Diamonds State Park is the attraction around here, and they do find REAL diamonds almost every day out there. We are 5 minutes from the park, so you can go work your luck, and come back for an afternoon nap when you are ready.
Should you be a stream trout fisherman, or lake fisherman, bring your catch back to a fully equipped kitchen, or head into Murfreesboro for one of several cuisine restaurants. For you fly fishermen and women, our little secret stream down in Southwest Arkansas is stocked from late October to late April, with fly fishing year round. A novice and experienced fly fisherman's dream not too far from home. Local guide available. You do need a license and stamp which you can get locally.
Our cottage is accessible to the great Ouachita mountains just up the road for you hikers and outdoor lovers. If you like walks in the woods and along the river, this one is for you.
Just 2 minutes from Murfreesboro,5 minutes from Crater of Diamonds State Park, 5 minutes from Lake Greeson and Narrows Dam landing, Wegner's and Coleman's Quartz Crystal mines are 40 minutes away (nothing but rave reviews from rock hounds), 4 State Parks within short distance, and 1 National forest and the Hot Springs National Park within an hour.
Mark and Suzanne are Texans originally, but found Arkansas 32 years ago and settled here to run a business and raise a family. Both our sons and daughter in law attended Arkansas schools and colleges. We truly love being Arkansans and everytime we leave for the crowded metropolises, we feel the warmth of the area as we return.
Mark purchased this house in 1997
We love the closeness of a truly unique small town area with plenty of things to see in nature. From Mark's passion for fly fishing for trout, sailing and flying, farming, golf and tennis, geocaching, and the outdoors to Suzanne's love of the beauty of nature, Murfreesboro and the surrounding area have it all. And the beauty is, people have not overrun the area. It still has small town appeal with a low amount of traffic, unlike other popular places in the area like Hot Springs and Branson. We like it so much we have purchased another home here and live here in retirement.
Fly fishing on a 5 mile stretch of water, a lake and boat marina within 5 minutes of the house, the Crater of Diamonds 5 minutes away, natural beauty of the lower Ouachita mountains, the color in the spring and fall, wildlife galore, and few people.
We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin is nice with plenty of room and extra quilts for the cold winter nights.
It has been a few years since we spent time in Murfreesboro, and I had forgotten how close it is to our favorite Ouachita attractions. We visited Albert Pike to take family Christmas pictures, then drove over to the Cossatot River State Park headquarters to get information about the kayak trips that will begin around April.
We had great time, perfect gateway spot ,rural, cozy and comfortable! No diamonds though, but that's all right, money can't buy happiness. Will return:-)
The cottage was very nice and all we expected it to be. We may never stay in motels again!
We really enjoyed our stay at your cottage. Secluded from the traffic, while still being close enough to everything we wanted to visit during our stay. It allowed us to have family style meals in the comforts of home. Since our group came in from 3 states to get together the cottage was perfect for our stay.
This little house is so cute! It was very comfortable and was neat as a pin. Mark came by as we were coming in and helped us with our luggage and told us about fun things to do and see. He gave a tour, and history lesson, of the site of the textile factory that operated in the 1800s. We enjoyed feeding the cute goats and the chickens. This place is out in the country. It's quiet but is only minutes from murphreesboro and the crater of diamonds park. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone heading in that direction! The only thing this property might need is a handrail by the steps going into the yard.
We just loved this little cabin.
What a cute and cozy place, exceptionally clean, so many nice touches throughout the cottage. We felt so much at home. Yes, there are fresh eggs. The owner made sure we arrived and were comfortable, not many people do this. Enjoyed our "dig" and visiting around the countryside of this part of the state getting to many hiking trails and seeing the Little Missouri River from a small stream to a deeper rushing river. If we make it to this part of the state again we will stay here. We also enjoyed putting one of the puzzles together.
Picturesque 2 acres with the cottage sitting on a hill, Crater of Diamonds State Park 5 minutes away, Lake Greeson swimming area and boating area 5 minutes away (boats rentable at Swaha Marina), fly fishing accesses are all within 3 to 5 minutes of this centrally located site
