Our cabin was built on the northeastern bluff of Petit Jean Mountain and is 750 feet above the base. Two miles of farmland lie between our cabin and the Arkansas River, and a panoramic mountain rimmed view extends over farmland to the north for over 20 miles. Cloud formations are incredibly beautiful at times and the atmosphere on the bluff is aways comfortable and relaxing. At night the star viewing is amazing.
Our cabin is actually a 1400 square ft house with two levels. There are three covered porches; two of them overlook the valley to the north and one of those is screened in. All the rooms to the rear of the house open to their respective porches.
This is located in a quiet woodland setting near the middle of three acres on the bluff of the mountain.

Ray and /or Kathy Allen purchased this cabin in 2010
Property next to our cabin/house has been in our family for the past 50 years. This cabin was built around 1995 and recently became available to us. We purchased this cabin in lieu of building a separate structure.
I enjoy watching the slow designs the farm equipment makes as fields are cut on the farmlands far below us and listening to the far off calls of cattle lowing in the evening. Storm cells moving across the valley any time of day are captivating, and watching the occasional crop duster work the fields below is a real treat.
I also enjoy sitting on the back porch and watching for river boats pushing barges up and down the river. These boats light up the river at night as they slowly push their loads along.
I enjoy drifting off to sleep on the second story hammock on the back porch and feeling the breeze coming up the side of the mountain.
There are only a few cabins/houses built on the bluffs of this entire mountain top and I always enjoy the fact that this is one of them. There's adventure here, and I like that too.
Our stay at the cabin this year was even better , everything was prettier the weather was great , our 90 year old Mom was comfortable and enjoyed setting on the screened in back porch taking in all the beautiful view . We had everything we needed fully stocked , extra clean and so peaceful . We ( my brothers and sisters) where so blessed being able to spend quality time with our Mom all under one roof again this year and I know she really enjoyed being with all her children together at one time ( very rare) . So glad we got there early and where able to meet the owner's , God's willing we will all be back next year :)
Excellent get away with full amenities for the mountain. Cabin was clean and fully stocked with all the away from home necessities for comfort. Beds were extremely comfortable. Enjoyed the view from the porches and fire pit area. Was very impressed with the landscaping outdoors and the cabin was decorated with the "mountain feel" in mind. I would recommend this to any one that wants a quiet getaway with all the comforts of home. Will stay again!
We had an excellent experience with this rental. Everything was as they described and then some. So close to all the hiking trails at petit Jean state park, which was the reason for our visit. The fire pit area outside is so nice. And the choice of porches, which all have GREAT views, was a perfect way to end the day. Would recommend this house and hope to come back ourselves.
The Allen cabin was the perfect venue for spending quality time with family in a beautiful spot. The cabin is situated right on the north brow of Petit Jean Mountain with breathtaking views at every time of day. It is spacious and cozy at the same time, comfortably furnished, and the adorable kitchen is well prepared for making and serving meals. The Allen's are kind, thoughtful hosts who have made provisions for all of your curiosities about the surrounding community and the enveloping natural beauty. We are so grateful to have spent part of the holidays at the Allen cabin! I highly recommend this perfect retreat to anyone from near or far.
My family and I stayed at the cabin at the recommendation of my son who had stayed at this cabin the year before. It was wonderful, stocked with everything you could need and in a beautiful location that was close enough to both the town and Petit Jean Park.
I would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting a great get away.
My wife and I brought our two daughters, ages 6 & 9, here for a get away weekend. The cabin was great, the view is amazing. We hiked, played games, grilled steaks and sat on the back porch. The master bed was very comfortable. I highly recommend staying here.
Day trip canoeing available on rivers to north and west, hang gliding from Mount Nebo, day trip cliff diving and swimming at Greer's Ferry Lake near Heber Springs to north, winery tours in Altus, Historic bath houses in Hot Springs, beautiful hiking trails on Petit Jean and surrounding areas. Excellent ATV trail systems on Mt. Magazine to west and Moccasin Gap to northwest. For those interested in geocaching, the opportunities abound.
