McJester Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

This beautiful cabin nestled in a wooded area on the Little Red River near Pangburn. “Camp David” offer guests a perfect getaway place for personal discovery or recreation. The cabin’s rustic charm blends with its natural surroundings and the location offers a feeling of seclusion yet it is conveniently located to the towns of Pangburn and Heber Springs and their plentiful options for outdoor recreation, unique shopping and dining.

The exterior of the cabin is Cypress with a metal roof (great on rainy days), features two great decks overlooking the river, a screened in porch with a daybed that is ideal for napping or sleeping to the sounds of the outdoors. A rock walkway leads you to your private boat and fishing dock where you can catch trout in your own backyard or just sit and enjoy the river and watch the trout rise and meet the two winged residents that include geese, ducks, kingfishers, bald eagles and great blue heron.

Beautiful Space: The interior is professionally decorated and features beautiful tongue & groove pine throughout; it is extremely comfortable and offers all the conveniences & style of contemporary living. The cabin has 2 bedrooms, each with a queen bed. There are 1 ½ baths, an incredible living space with an awesome fireplace. The couch doubles as a pull out queen bed, (couples use it even when they are the only guests to enjoy sleeping by the fire), and the cabin has a small perfectly appointed kitchen and adjoining dining area that seats six. The cabin will accommodate up to 2 couples or a single family. You can sleep seven if you use the pullout sofa & sleeping porch. This place is so cozy and romantic you will not want to leave.

Gateway to the Ozarks: Whether sporting or relaxing this Little Red River getaway is the perfect home base from which to enjoy the River Valley. While known for its world class trout fishing, this cabin is conveniently located at the gateway to the Ozarks, should you desire to venture out for some incredible Arkansas day trips. However, you don’t have to go anywhere; the nearby town of Pangburn (Pop. 601) is 2 minutes away. It has a grocery store; you can rent movies and Pangburn has a few restaurants including Southern Girls BBQ and a pizza and burger joint that delivers to the cabin. Heber Springs & Greers Ferry Lake with its quaint little shops and art galleries is only 15 minutes away. Heber has a hip coffee shop called the Jitterbug Coffee House where you can work the community jigsaw puzzle. The Gem Theater shows current feature films. Heber Springs has lots of dining options.

Local Flavor: We often recommend Café Klazer; located on the bank of the river below Swinging Bridge (Barnett Access) they serve a signature stuffed steak that is famous in these parts! Klazer’s also has a bar (private membership) & often features local musicians to entertain you. Greer’s Ferry Lake is also only 15 minutes away from so if you desire “big water” you can rent a boat or launch yours at Dam Site Marina and spend a day on the lake. At “Camp David” you can read & relax while enjoying the sights and sounds of the wildlife or fish the World Class Trout Waters of the Little Red River in your backyard. Nap in a hammock, sit by the fire or you may venture out and enjoy everything the area has to offer…it’s your time you can do everything or just enjoy doing nothing. If you would like help in planning your trip & to make a reservation please call or email us.

About David Ashmore

Southern boy, fly fisherman that moved to Arkansas from the cement forest of Dallas, Texas to finish college in 1977. I loved the Natural State and made Little Rock my home.

David Ashmore purchased this cabin in 2005

Why David Ashmore chose Arkansas

After years of spending time on the Little Red River and often dreaming 'one of these days I want a place on the Little Red River' one of these days finally arrived when we found the perfect cabin and location for our family.

What makes this cabin unique

Completely charming and romantic cabin with a beautiful fireplace that is a work of art. The cabin is nestled in a canopy of trees on a world class trout stream only an hour and 15 minutes from my house. What else is there?

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I visited Camp David for several nights recently and wished we could have stayed much longer. The cabin is cozy and comfortable, the porches are relaxing and the trout fishing is great! I would highly recommend this wonderful place to stay for anyone wanting to have an enjoyable and pleasant get-away! 5 stars!

Lovely cabin.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is so nice and relaxing. The bed with wonderful sheets was so relaxing. This cabin is a 10. The only negative thing it needs a relaxing chair in the living room. My husband had the couch. The straight back chair was ok, but would be a lot better with a comfy chair or recliner. It rained most of the weekend, but that was fine. We came to get away. Will be back.

Nice, relaxing cabin on the river

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two teenagers spent 3 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The cabin is stocked with basically everything you need except for food and drink. The fishing from the dock is good and provided hours of fun and a couple of nice grilled trout dinners. The front porch swing, sreened-in back porch, and deck areas are great for coffee sipping. Ready to go back!

we just needed some time away but didn't want to drive too far. This is a great get away! Porches, decks, fishing dock, what else do you need? Totally relaxing. The Cabin is great! I felt like I was thousands of miles away. Would definitely go back!

Owner's Response: Debbie, We are so glad you enjoyed Camp David and hope you will return soon. The cabin is great in the fall & winter when you can build a roaring fire and enjoy watching the migrating waterfowl that use the river as their winter home. David
