Mother & Daughters Trip...

  • 5 of 5

im so glad that I chose this property. very relaxing, fully functional. when bridget said "all you need is food", she was right. The property was in great shape, well maintained, as well as the 300 acres. there is a grocery not to far away from the property, but everything was there. Laundry Det, dish soap, garbage bags, paper towels, towels for kids/pets for the creek, linens,.. we felt so at home and so comfortable here. It was great. Been going through some personal issues, and this was a trip that just my teenage daughters and I took and it was EXACTLY what we (I) needed. there is a little fishing hole on the property with catfish and bass, there is also a creek that zig zags through the property, which was beautiful. the water was crystal clear. there is also a private swimming hole on the property, that is beautiful and crystal clear. I believe this is the Caddo River, so you will see people tubing and canoeing/kayaking. you can rent canoes or tubes just up or down ?? the road, less than a couple miles. Bridgette & Marty were very accommodating and helpful. There is some historical history relating to the property, regarding Indians. If you are looking for a quite, peaceful, relaxing get a away,. I PROMISE you will not be disappointed. there are at least 4-5 trails on the property to walk and explore. Hot Springs is about 25 mins away, the Diamond Mine in Murfreesboro is also about 20 mins away. We will be coming back. The view from the living room was very nice. and the STARS are BEAUTIFUL at night. everynight I would take the lawn chair and put in in the middle of the driveway or on the grass and just lay out there for a couple hours! Very relaxing, very comfortable.. Exactly what I needed to clear my head, and re-group! CANNOT WAIT TO GO BACK.. IF I WAS CLOSER, I WOULD BE THERE EVERY WEEKEND! I tried to find a job while I was down there! lol.. also have some great flea markets. it is a DRY COUNTY.

Best kept secret! Private clear swimming hole with rope swing! can't wait to go back!!

  • 5 of 5

Relax and enjoy the beautiful view of mountains cattle and sip coffee or sleep half the day in super comfy beds. Private swimming hole was awesome and very clear. We took our kayaks and paddled up stream to the rope swing and played in the water all afternoon. She also had tubes and float toys by the swimming hole for us to use. Bridgett & Marty were super gave us a tour of the farm. Cottage is very comfy roomy and fully stocked and super pet friendly! She had towels for the river & dogs! Only thing we needed was more time! Weekend flew by! Planning on returning with our family very soon! This is the perfect place for race fans plenty of room to park trailers and just few minuets from the track. best kept secret in caddo gap!

Our favorite vacation cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time back to Caddo Gap at this particular property. The cottage is always very clean with very comfortable beds and close enough to town to be able to get food supplies. There's no phone service at the cottage, but a short drive away, you'll pick up service. You will feel very secure at the cottage; lots of land with a few houses on the property away from each other. Marty and Bridgett are the most accommodating and pleasant people ever! Their beautiful scenic property is always kept up!

One day we ventured out to nearby Albert Pike Recreation Area and to Little Missouri Falls. Both places were nice, but we like Little Missouri Falls the best...a very beautiful area! Another day we spent our time on this peaceful awesome property. There's a private pond and access to the river on the property which allowed us to have an awesome time without having to travel and spend more money. We had such a great time! We grilled burgers by the river, relaxed and enjoyed being with each other and the privacy and peacefulness of the river. We came back to the cottage after playing in the water, kayaking and tubing in the river to great showers and a comfy place to eat, play games, watch a couple movies and comfortably sleep 6 adults. We bought our food in Glenwood and cooked at the cottage. There are fast food places in Glenwood to eat at and there are also places to rent canoes and tubes. The river is great, for just about all ages, to have lots of water fun!

All in all, the Buena Vista Cottage at Pea Patch Ranch is an awesome place with some awesome owners! We'll, most definitely, be back to enjoy the scenic mountains and rivers of Caddo Gap area.

Marvelous Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time to stay at Buens Vista. It is one of the most peaceful and comfortable places we have ever stayed. We've always gone in November to enjoy the fall leaves and to walk. The leaves were spectacular tis year and last. On each visit it's been too cold to swim, but the river looks inviting and we enjoy just watching it flow by. This time Bridget told us about the walking trails that we hadn't discovered on our prior trips and we got in two nice hikes through the hilly and wooded portion of the ranch.

We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing time and look forward to our return.

Wonderful property, wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Buena Vista cottage! Bridget and Marty were gracious and helpful hosts. The cottage is extremely comfortable and family friendly, and the farm itself is a delight to explore. The swimming hole was a great (and free!) way to spend many relaxing hours swimming and fishing in the Caddo River. We have vacationed in this area before and highly recommend the many wonderful activities nearby, but this stay we mainly just enjoyed the farm and were perfectly content and entertained. Be sure to pack sturdy shoes for hiking the farm and water shoes for canoeing and playing in the river. We echo the praises of earlier reviewers and highly recommend the Buena Vista cottage to others! Thanks Bridget and Marty for a great stay : )
