Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Little Missouri Fly Fishing Cottage at 16 Factory Site Road is within 3 minutes of all the best accesses to the Little Missouri, the best kept trout stream secret in Arkansas. And for you diamond hunters, we are 5 minutes down the road from the Crater of Diamonds.

Our cottage sits secluded in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains. Cozy in the fall and winter months, just sit back and enjoy a fire in the Fisher Stove. During the fall the hardwoods on the property add just a bit of color to the 2 acre spread.

Yes, the Crater of Diamonds State Park is the attraction around here, and they do find REAL diamonds almost every day out there. We are 5 minutes from the park, so you can go work your luck, and come back for an afternoon nap when you are ready.

Should you be a stream trout fisherman, or lake fisherman, bring your catch back to a fully equipped kitchen, or head into Murfreesboro, Nashville, or Glenwood for one of several cuisine restaurants. For you fly fishermen and women, our little secret stream down in Southwest Arkansas is stocked from late October to late April, with fly fishing year round. A novice and experienced fly fisherman's dream not too far from home. Local guide available. You do need a license and stamp which you can get locally.

Our cottage is accessible to the great Ouachita mountains just up the road for you hikers and outdoor lovers. If you like walks in the woods and along the river, this one is for you.

Just 2 minutes from Murfreesboro,5 minutes from Crater of Diamonds State Park, 5 minutes from Lake Greeson and Narrows Dam landing, Wegner's and Coleman's Quartz Crystal mines are 40 minutes away (nothing but rave reviews from rock hounds), 4 State Parks within short distance, and 1 National forest and the Hot Springs National Park within an hour.

About Mark

Mark and Suzanne are Texans originally, but found Arkansas 33 years ago and settled here to run a business and raise a family. Both our sons and daughter in law attended Arkansas schools and colleges. We truly love being Arkansans and everytime we leave for the crowded metropolises, we feel the warmth of the area as we return.

Mark purchased this house in 1997

Why Mark chose Arkansas

We love the closeness of a truly unique small town area with plenty of things to see in nature. From Mark's passion for fly fishing for trout, sailing and flying, farming, golf and tennis, geocaching, and the outdoors to Suzanne's love of the beauty of nature, and grandkids, Murfreesboro and the surrounding area have it all. And the beauty is, people have not overrun the area. It still has small town appeal with a low amount of traffic, unlike other popular places in the area like Hot Springs and Branson. We like it so much we have purchased another home here and live here in retirement.

What makes this house unique

Fly fishing on a 5 mile stretch of water (best season is February to June 1), a lake and boat marina within 5 minutes of the house, the Crater of Diamonds 5 minutes away, natural beauty of the lower Ouachita mountains, the color in the spring and fall, wildlife galore, and few people.

Cute cozy great location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was a bit smaller than the pics made it look but it was perfect for what we were looking for. Very close to diamond digging and fishing but secluded and lots of room for kids to run and play. The owner was very friendly and easy to work with. He came out and showed the kids how to play croquet and gather eggs and they watched him feed the goats. We enjoyed getting the eggs and talking to the goats. There is a twin bed in a very small bedroom up front. The couch makes into a king sized sleeper however the girls said it was extremely springy and uncomfortable. There is another small bedroom with a queen bed , dresser, and tv. One the back side of the house is an add on room with a twin size daybed and trundle underneath. It was very comfy. The kitchen is cozy and had everything we needed. The bathroom is large and had plenty of towels, shampoo, wash rags, and toilet paper. We didn't use the laundry but it was there and handy to have. There is a place outside to build a fire and we roasted hot dogs and Smores. There is also a fish cleaning station behind the house with a sink and counter area. We were pleased with our stay. Also nice that it was stocked with games and magazines for the kids.

Owner's Response: Glad you were able to appreciate how a family of 6 lived in a small home back in the day. With modern amenities and heat and air and plenty of beds (even if we have to pull out the couch bed) I think modern kids have it pretty good. Glad they could relax in the country. There are bigger homes at bigger prices here, but we are glad to share our weekender as an alternative to the motels.

Will be returning again! Loved this little house! Had plenty of room for the 3 of us. Mr. Mark came by to make sure we settled in ok and called the day before we left to make sure everything was as expected. Loved the fresh eggs!

Great Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Mark was an excellent host. While our original intent was only to visit Crater of Diamonds State Park, Mark offered several other attractions in the area. We took him up on his suggestion to visit Wegner's Crystal Mines and we're glad we did. He also showed our three small children (3, 9, 11) how to collect the eggs in the morning. It was great having fresh eggs.

The house itself was very quaint, yet has everything you need for a stress free stay. There is a wood burning stove should a cold front move in during your stay. The weather was beautiful so we did not need it.

Overall, it was a great stay and would recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. We drove two days from Ga. to hunt diamonds. Mark and his wife were like family as soon as we met them and the cottage was furnished so cozy, comfortable beds and fresh eggs every day that our boys loved to gather. This is the only place we would stay if we ever make it back again.
