Mountain View vacation rentals

Mountain Views is surrounded by stunning natural scenery

Looking for peace, tranquility, and an abundance of natural scenery suited to rejuvenating outdoor activities? Look no further than Mountain View, a small and friendly Arkansas town located in forest-rich Stone County, high in the rocky river-cut Ozark Mountains. There’s an array of Mountain View vacation rentals available, from cabins and country cottages to lakefront estates and full-sized homes set deep in the woodland. As well as its fishing and hiking activities, Mountain View is renowned for its celebration of traditional folk music and culture, hosting several buzzing music festivals across the year.

Fishing and stargazing in Mountain View

Nature loving vacationers will find plenty of enlivening outdoor recreation in Mountain View. Anglers can visit the roaring White River – a top spot for trout fishing – or hike through the nearby Ozark National Forest in search of secluded, crystalline mountain streams. Ozark National Forest also boasts a winding network of mountain bike trails, and plenty of camping grounds, if you fancy trading in your Mountain View vacation rental for a night of star watching and marshmallows around the fire. Back in the town proper, you’ll always find some live folk music happening.

Cave adventures and family-friendly folk activities

Mountain View’s crowning attraction is Blanchard Springs Caverns, a labyrinth-like cave system studded with enormous stalactites and dotted with bright green-blue pools. You can take a guided walking tour along the Discovery Trail, 366 feet underground, or – if you’re feeling daring – you can take a white-knuckle 3-hour Wild Cave tour through the caverns’ undeveloped areas. Back in town, stop by the Ozark Folk Center State Park, a living history park packed full of folk-related activities – from pottery making and blacksmithing to dance and cooking classes. Not to mention, of course, plenty of live folk music.

Spring and fall bring radiant colors and balmy days

Mountain View, like the rest of Stone County Arkansas, experiences 4 distinct seasons, with summers that can get scorching and winters that can bring heavy snow – particularly higher up in the Ozark Mountains. The best time of year to visit Mountain View – to enjoy the complete range of outdoor activities on offer – are the spring and fall seasons, where days are mild and sunny, and the sea of forest foliage either flourishes in bright greens or glimmers golden-brown.

Deep forests and meandering rivers in the Ozarks

Mountain View proffers from a truly abundant amount of natural beauty. Situated in Arkansas’ Ozark Mountains, the town is entirely surrounded by dense wildlife-rich forest, rolling hills, and roaring rivers, such as the trout-filled White River, which flows through both Arkansas and Missouri. Just south of Mountain View, you’ll find Ozark–St. Francis National Forest – a few Mountain View vacation rentals are based nearby. These US National Forests are blanketed with pine and oak species, crisscrossed with hiking, biking, and horse-riding trails, and webbed with fresh mountain streams and rivers suited to fishing and canoeing.
