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 33 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 (best season is February to June 1), 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 truly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Mark goes above and beyond the meet any needs that arrise during your stay and is a wealth of information on the area. The fresh eggs provided for nice breakfasts. The cabin is centrally located to all the public access points to the Little Missouri river for fishing and floating. The cabin exceeds the listing. I am now trying to set up a return trip in the fall and will stay again.
The cabin was the best place to stay. Fresh eggs in the morning before our diamond digging adventure. The owner also made some great reccommendations on other activities in the area. It was a great vacation! Will use again.
Perfect location for diamond and crystal hunters. As others have said, lots of space inside and out and the washer/dryer was a HUGE benefit. Our son loved looking for eggs each day and taking care of the animals at the end of the day. The owner went above and beyond by checking in with us and offering suggestions beyond the diamonds/quartz hunting. We've already started talking about a return trip. :-)
This has got to be one of the best choices of places to stay when diamond hunting. Great family location with plenty of space inside and out for kids. The owner goes above and beyond and it has a washer and dryer. How can you diamond hunt with out that? :) Thank you for a wonderful trip.
Our family enjoyed staying in the cottage in Murfreesboro while visiting the area. Everything in the house was clean and in working order. Owner was great on communication, very prompt response and did an excellent job making sure our stay was a good one. We had small children with us for this trip and one of their main highlights was fun they had getting to see the chickens and the goats.
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.
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
