Peaceful fall retreat

  • 5 of 5
Every year our group of friends plan a weekend trip to explore the Fall colors of Arkansas. While looking for accommodation for a large gp of 8, we came across the STRAW BALE ARTIST RETREAT. This beautiful cabin was tastefully build & furnished. The owners passion for travel was abundantly clear with the selection of decorations all through the house.

We explored the scenic drive over the weekend and returned home after a few short hikes around the area. The cabin was well stocked with utensils and spices to cook multiple meals. The Walmart located about 13miles from the cabin also helped.

We spent the night in the backyard playing our guitar and humming songs while the logs burned keeping us warm. The beautiful pond beside the cabin reflected the fall colors and was a breath-taking sight to wake-up to. We took the Canoe into the pond as well...

A good weekend retreat from Dallas, a very warm owner who also gave us suggestions on things to do in the area. Definitely coming back next year!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 took my parents to the cabin for 3 days. The cabin had plenty of room for the 7 of us. My parents have been to over 100 countries and both of them remarked that the Straw Bale Artist Retreat was the cutest cabin they have ever been to. We are a cold natured group so we loved all the heating options (wood stove, fireplace, wall heater unit in kitchen, space heaters in every room, and the dual mattress heaters on every bed). There was much attention to detail given to all the bedding, decorations, art and furniture.
We went to Little Mo hiking trails about 20 miles from the cabin for a day adventure. The hiking was beautiful.
She told us where the food was for the deer if we wanted to feed them. We saw deer at least once a day.
The cabin is a perfect place to unplug from the rat race of life. The owner has many books to choose from and offered any to us if we found one that interested us.
The kitchen had anything we needed for cooking (spices, canned food). It also had a coffee maker. We brought all our own food but it was nice to know that there was a McDonalds 15-20 min from the cabin in case we ran out of food (we have 3 teenagers).
The owner was easy to work with and returned our deposit within 3-4 days even though we broke one of her drinking glasses.
We would definitely like to go again.
