About Christina McDonald

Jim was born in Arkansas and when he had the opportunity to return in 1995, we were excited about the move. We never dreamed we'd end up in such a beautiful spot!

Christina McDonald purchased this house in 1995

Why Christina McDonald chose Eureka Springs

We were on our way to meet with our realtor to make an offer on another home when we saw a 'FOR SALE BY OWNER' sign. We decided to take a quick look. The couple who owned this home was on their way to church and encouraged us to go ahead and look at the property. Our kids didn't want to leave! Suddenly, we knew that the other house would never be home and that this was where we belonged. We met with the realtor and explained the situation...this kind man actually encouraged us to purchase the river home!

What makes this house unique

This home has been the perfect place to raise a family and entertain friends. We've enjoyed seeing the seasons come and go and the changing beauty of the river throughout the year. The glory of the mountains, the fresh air, the peace of the river...it gets into your soul!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place really is a home away from home! Very cozy & comfortable and peaceful for us. I can't wait to visit again!

The River Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely beautiful ! We were on the river! The view was amazing and the house was so beautifully decorated and spacious ! We decided to have an early Thansgiviing with our family! The kitchen was perfect for the occasion and easily accommodated all 10 of us! The house was do clean and beautiful and was equipped with everything for our stay ! We have decided to start a tradition and go back each year for Thansgiving ! This is the perfect place because the men can fish and kayak abd those who want to shop is sight see can do that as well! This was the most perfect place we loved it and the owners of the property were very friendly, kind, and accomadating! We had the most amazing time !!! We didn't want to leave :-(

We had a wonderful 4 days in Eureka Springs at River House Retreat. The house is comfortable & has everything you could possibly need to cook, relax, & visit. The property is beautiful-flowers, river, fire pit & we enjoyed them all. Christine & Jim were so kind & helpful. Eureka Springs is just 9 miles away for fun shopping & restaurants. Would definitely recommend you stay here-you will feel right at home.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My sister chose this rental home primarily because there were 3 adult couples and the house has 3 completely separate bedrooms, each with its own bath. We stayed 4 nights and loved the fact that we could cook in the completely furnished kitchen or on the grill and didn't have to go in to town every night to a restaurant. We loved sitting outside in the evening and building a fire in the pit since the weather was still fairly cool at night. We used the family room to watch movies. The location was great - just 9 miles east of Eureka Springs. The house was completely furnished and had everything we needed. The owner was extremely helpful and always available to answer any questions. I would highly recommend this property, and in fact I have already told my boss about it and sent him the details.

5 Stars Is Not Enough!

  • 5 of 5

I was interested in this house because on-line it looked close to the river - the river is in the backyard! Just a reasonable walk either through the yard or down the paved public boat ramp that's adjacent to the property. But it will be difficult to bring yourself to leave the comfort of the large back deck or pass the fire ring and chairs that "require" that you roast hot dog and s'mores!

And calling the house "charming" doesn't do it justice. Great attention to detail was obvious in every area. Just perfect! The features of the house that I MUST mention are a great kitchen! a great laundry room! and comfortable beds! I've rented on-line numerous times. This is the best of all of them - by far!

The owners were unobtrusive yet immediately available to answer any questions, e.g., how to use the wood burning stove, directions to places in the area, replace coffee maker same day (be sure and ask if you aren't familiar with how the washer and dryer work). They made our fishing excursions outstanding and created wonderful memories for my kids - priceless!! I didn't know the owners before this rental, but I now consider them friends. That's how outstanding our week at River House Retreat was and why I say that 5 Stars is not enough. 10 Stars feels right!

Trust the consistent high reviews and stay here!!! Unmatched view of the river!!!

  • 5 of 5

We used this rental for three nights as a men's fishing retreat in mid November. I cannot say enough about the level of hospitality that was apparent during our stay, including freshly baked cookies awaiting our arrival. Every detail was taken care of so that our stay was relaxing and comfortable. We all left very well rested. The amenities left nothing needed. The kitchen was completely stocked with high end utensils and all the cooking needs. The rooms were beautifully decorated, each one with it's own character. The beds were cozy and comfortable. The two living areas, one with a huge big screen television, the other with a wide range of books and a wood buying stove, provided ample comfortable seating. The view of the river from the large windows, and the oversized back porch, has to be one of the best in the area. Access to the boat ramp is less than 50 yards. The level of cleanliness made the whole place seem truly fresh. It is apparent that the host and hostess have a heart for hospitality and servitude. I will definitely visit again.
