Overview

Arkansas 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

Perfect Cabin Retreat, Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cabin retreat. Rustic, yet very well appointed. When in the backyard, you feel very secluded, yet you are very close to town. Camp David comfortably housed my Family of 5.

David was very helpful and accommodating. The fishing was great right off the dock.

We look forward to making Camp David a routine getaway!

Great Little Cabin on a Great Little River

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very nice, extremely clean, well appointed, and perfect for what we wanted. River access is easy on foot or by boat. Sleeping arrangements were great (queen upstairs, queen downstairs, fold-out couch, screened in porch), though with five men and a little boy we were packed in pretty tight.

Kitchen has everything you need for cooking, and the back deck has lot of room to hang out and grill (bring your own charcoal). We had a great weekend and will definitely be back at some point.

Quiet, great retreat

  • 5 of 5

Nicely designed cabin, finished beautifully, aged perfectly. Perfect getaway cabin for a couple or two couples to spend some time. The kitchen is not large, but has everything necessary, the beds are very comfortable, the screen porch is the perfect size to go and sit with coffee or a book, and everything fits in its place.

The dock is good for watching the water go by or casting a line and catching a fish...my wife caught 8 before breakfast the second morning of our stay.

This is a great place to use as a base of operations - close enough to the main roads to get where you want to go - or to get away and just relax for a few days.

The worst part of the stay is having to leave.

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Camp David was exactly the same as it was the first time my daughter and I stayed - it was perfect. This time I brought my mother along with us and as she stepped into the cabin she said, "Oh...this is beautiful!" Her favorite place inside was sitting in front of that massive stone fireplace watching the fire; her favorite place outside was in one of the two rockers on the back deck (although the front porch swing was a close second!). We found her peacefully sleeping a couple of time, there in the rocker! We all loved the quiet - even though there are houses on both sides, you really don't notice at all. The cabin is, as everyone says, clean and well supplied with everything you need other than food; and if you desire, you must bring your own 'drinks' as the cabin is in a 'dry' county in Arkansas. You have everything you need for a wonderful stay - dishwasher, washer and dryer - and someone 'magically' makes sure you have all the firewood you need! We will definitely return to Camp David again - soon!

Enchanting Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I wanted a place to retreat from the corporate city life. As many, we are constantly exhausted by the joys of parenting. We both LOVE our son & our careers but needed a place to unwind & relax. Arkansas is still home to many such places however Camp David provided an enchanting weekend. The first word my husband used to describe the cabin (I mean within 30 seconds of walking through the door) was romantic! I must say we have traveled many places across the world & he never describes a place as romantic. It felt like home!!! It's a place a man will enjoy for the fishing/hunting & a woman will enjoy for the wonderous sounds of nature that surround her. It was extremely clean. Everything you will need for your stay was provided. I recommend driving into Heber Springs to visit Jitter Bug Coffee (for this city girl with food allergies, they have dairy free/gluten free options), the Art Fix is a must for unique local art/jewelry/gifts. The owner is friendly & provided us her business card "call me if you have any questions about where to eat, shop, directions". We will stay again both with & without our son! Thank you for sharing your enchanting home with us!
