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.

Very relaxing Trip

This is the second time we have stayed at this establishment. The Host is always very friendly and willing to help out by giving us fly fishing pointers, eating out suggestions, and great attractions to visit. His goats and chickens always welcome us as well!! We LOVE staying here!!!

Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

Mark was so gracious and had the cabin heated for us and our 7 month old baby since we were arriving late at night. The cabin was warm and cozy with plenty of room for baby gear. We loved gathering eggs each morning for breakfast burritos. The diamond state park is a short drive away which made this cabin a perfect place to stay.

This is our 2nd trip and my friends & I love staying at the Little Mo cabin while hunting for diamonds. The place is neat and very clean. Mark is a great host. We will definitely return next year.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family of five had a wonderful, relaxing time. My daughter had the most fun collecting eggs and putting the chickens up in the evening. Fishing was right down the road. Cutest little town to shop and dig for diamonds. Mark was so helpful telling us the best places to eat and the best places to fish. The lake is within a few miles also where we rented a boat. We would definitely recommend this cottage.
