LITTLE MISSOURI RIVER FLY FISHING COTTAGE

Murfreesboro House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

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 30 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, 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.

Very nicely appointed, cozy cottage

Our family enjoyed staying a couple of nights at the Fly Fishing Cottage. The owner was very hospitable and checked in on us. We enjoyed the fresh eggs from the chickens and the amenities the cottage had to offer. My main recommendation is if you are a moderate to light sleeper, you might want to invest in some earplugs due to the roosters. I grew up with them but had forgotten how "vocal" they can be with one of them sounding his alarm around 3 am both mornings. The rest of my family slept right through it so it was only me that got to be the early riser! haha! Other than that, I loved this place and would come back again.

Fabulous Spring Break Adventure

Our family of six (2 adults and 4 children ages 15,14,10, and 8) had an amazing time staying at this hidden gem of a vacation rental. We WILL be back! We were able to give our kids a unique vacation experience with the goats, chickens, and rooster. They have been talking about Diamond, Sundae, and Jill (the goats) since we left. Our 8 year old thought gathering chicken eggs was awesome! Even the rooster crowing in the morning was fun for us "city folk". We cannot wait to return again. We highly recommend this rental to all of our family and friends. Mark, the owner, came by and showed the kids how to feed the animals. He also gave us some "fun facts" about the area and directed us to some sights we had not yet seen. The cottage is cozy and CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN. We have a child with an immune deficiency so we are very careful about our environment when we stay away from home. This house was impeccable. Thanks to Mark and his wife for providing an affordable option for large families when traveling. The comforts of "home" sure beat a hotel room. We went digging for diamonds at Crater of Diamonds State Park, saw a nearby house that had been featured on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, visited the Little Missouri River, the Dam, and Lake Greeson. This truly is a one of a kind experience. There's even a campire spot at the house where we roasted marshmallows and made S'mores. Our friends can have Spring Break at the beach, our kids cannot stop talking about what thy have affectionately dubbed "the goat house". We will be back! Thank you.

The fishing cabin was a great place for 3 of our grandchildren, ages 9, 9, 11. They had never gathered eggs or had petted real live goats. They had fun. The cabin was just what we needed to look over the area and the diamond mine.
