This is a secluded cabin in the middle of 20+ acres on Big Sugar Creek. Perfect for a romantic getaway or bring the kids or another couple to share the experience. Nothing beats a peaceful evening sitting around a camp fire watching the stars on a clear night. The eagles roost along the bluffs and return each year from November through March. The cabin is on the bluff side of the creek . You can also hike down to the creek or there are swimming areas near by accessible via car. (Mac's Big Rock and Owl's Nest) The closest canoe out-fitter is approx. 2 miles away at Sugar Island Campground.
The area is known for its horse trails and hunting at Huckleberry Ridge State Forest. According to legend, locals used to the harvest huckleberries, which are a type of blueberry. The forest has miles of horse trails suitable for the novice or experienced rider. Popular sites include: Green Hollow, Cave Hollow, Overlook Point and Sheep Herders bluff. Horse trailers are welcome. The park also offers bicycling, bird watching, camping, and hiking.
Big Sugar Creek derived its name from the numerous groves of sugar maples which grew along its banks. Just up stream and east of Pineville is Cyclone, Missouri. A popular float is from the low water bridge at Cyclone to Craig O'Lea. The road to Cyclone meanders up the Big Sugar Creek Valley. A post office was established December, 1883 and Cyclone was named from the great cyclone of April 18, 1880, that passed through this part of the state.
During the warmer months the creek is a popular place for picnics, sunbathing, camping and canoeing. Elk River along with its tributaries, provides some of the clearest water and best canoeing in the state. The skill level is rated easy to moderate. The Elk is about as easy as they come, while Big Sugar, Little Sugar and Indian Creeks are narrower, swifter and more challenging. Bring your own canoe/kayak or rent from several canoe outfitters in the area. If you have ever wanted to try stream snorkeling, this is the place to do it!

I grew up in the area, attending school in nearby Neosho, Mo. This was always a popular place to go and I loved the clear water creek. Years later, I purchased land on the creek and built a cabin. here. My family have enjoyed camping, 4-wheeling and canoeing at 'MeMa's Cabin'.
Mary purchased this cabin in 2007
I enjoy the water and have spent several childhood days on Big Sugar Creek. I purchased the land (20+ acres) and had the cabin built as a weekend getaway.
In Pineville, Missouri, an annual 'Jesse James Days' festival is held in August. The 1939 film, Jesse James starring Tyrone Power and Henry Fonda as Jesse and his brother, Frank, was filmed in Pineville. Jesse James was the first Western filmed in color, and it remains a vibrant adventure. Each year, the Pineville festival includes an outdoor screening of the film.

My wife and I had a great time here, the cabin is clean and pleasant and the surroundings are beautiful. Loved the hot tub and hammock. We'll be back over the summer!
After a long hectic year, the wife and I were in desperate need of the perfect secluded getaway without the kiddos! We absolutely found it at Mary's retreat in the woods. Any extended trip we always choose a rental home, and many claim seclusion but this was plenty deep into the woods, off the beaten path. Even thought the owner lives on the property, you feel plenty alone. She stopped a couple times on her way in and out to just say hi or point out we should see some deer (which we definitely did)...that was a nice touch and didn't bother us at all. Close enough to groceries and nearby Bentonville, we escaped if needed. There is an amazing place to dine right on the river if you want to spoil yourself with a unexpected culinary delight, Haven 55. Can't wait until the opportunity to return. Sorry it took so long to review!
The location is very remote, quiet and peaceful. It does have internet, a wonderful view and a great hot tub. This was just what the doctor ordered! Mary was a delight to work with. Be sure to bring paper products and any and all spices as well as food if you plan to cook - I had failed to bring salt & pepper, all cooking and eating utensils are provided. If climbing stairs are an issue for you, then I would encourage you to consider another location. I will definitely consider staying at this property again.
We had a very good time at the little cabin in the woods. It's a short walk to the creek in the seclusion is amazing. Saw some deer out of the upstairs window early morning. I wife and I and our friends really enjoyed staying at this cabin.
Although we had a honeymoon planned in Jamaica, we did not plan to go until 7 months after the wedding. We snuck down to this cabin after our wedding for what we called our Mini-Honeymoon and we loved every minute! Mary is a fantastic property manager. The cabin was well maintained and clean. The privacy was just what we were looking for after all the wedding festivities. The view from the 2nd story windows was gorgeous in the Fall and we talked about how nice it would be to be there at a time when snow was falling and watch it from the same vantage point. We grilled on the BBQ, relaxed around the fire pit, soaked in the outdoor hot tub, and enjoyed the indoor jacuzzi. I would highly recommend this place/experience to anyone!
We absolutely loved the cabin! It was totally wonderful-- more than words can explain. Everything was beautiful and the cabin was equipped with everything we needed. The view was breathtaking and we enjoyed walking down to the river to play in the water. It was a great place for our anniversary celebration. It would also be wonderful for a family vacation. We will definitely go back!! We highly recommend this cabin for anyone who wants a relaxing, beautiful, peaceful break.
