Overview

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.

About Mark

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

Why Mark chose Murfreesboro

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Nice place, nice owners

  • 5 of 5
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.

a Gem of a bargain

  • 5 of 5
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.

Off the Beaten Path

  • 5 of 5
Our family chose to have a vacation that wasn't all about amusement parks this year. We wanted to have "family time". This cottage was the perfect home base! Roomy enough for a family of 5 and very affordable. Our girls LOVED roasting marshmallows at night so much that we are putting in a fire pit here at home. We WILL be back next year to hit the quartz mines!!!

Great for families

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent time at the cabin. My two girls LOVED Jill and the other goats. They really enjoyed feeding them and taking lots of pictures. They loved the fresh eggs every afternoon. We did go to the Diamond mine four days, found nothing but, still an awesome trip. Weather pretty hot for us 91*. Suzanne was a blessing. She got us to Wal Mart to get a trac phone. ( Sprint does not have reception down there.) I would definitely recommend the cabin to others. !!
Hope to see you again soon!!

Quiet, Quaint and Homey!

  • 5 of 5
We had the opportunity to stay at Lil Mo's Fly Fishing cabin this past June and were very happy we stayed there! First of all, the place was very clean and inviting, the air worked GREAT as the temps were in the 90's and humidity HIGH! We came down to go to the Diamond minefield to look for diamonds and to see the surrounding areas. Alas, we did NOT find any diamonds, but it was neat to experience doing it! (It was harder than we anticipated due to the HOT weather and HARD ground!) We spent a day in Hot Springs which was very nice to see altho somewhat like the southern version of Wisconsins Dells area. Full of people, shops, eateries, gift shops and the like. Did lots of relaxing, did some hiking and visited Lake Greeson. We also spent some time with the owners, Mark and Suzanne, who are very nice people! We enjoyed our short time with them! A plus, was our "almost free" breakfasts each day! After my husband figured out how to gather the fresh eggs from the chickens(with Marks help-thanks, Mark for not laughing at him!)we enjoyed the freshest eggs for breakfasts each day! The goats were a cute addition too and we enjoyed petting them. All in all, a very nice trip and we are already talking about trying our luck again in Spring, 2015!
PS-hint: the eggs are behind the little doors on the wall!!!!!!

Like coming home.

  • 2 of 5
We enjoyed our stay very much. The grandchildren loved the goats and chickens, and gathering eggs. My husband and I both grew up on a farm, so the place was like coming home. We didn't find a diamond, but it was a great experience. Mark came by to check on us and meet the family. Would like to come back some day. Thanks for a clean place to stay.
