About the property

Peace And Quiet In A Beautiful Natural Setting. Not Too Far Off Beaten Path.

This is a great place to get your head on or get away from the human race. You can use this place to enjoy the natural beauty of Montgomery County, Arkansas i.e. fishing, water skiing, boating, hunting, canoeing, hiking, crystal digging and/or mountain biking or just to see if this is the community you would like to retire to. Beautiful scenery, and if you time it right you will see the deer crossing the property every morning. This is a 1,550 square foot home with 2 bedrooms and an open floor plan. This home has 3 porches, 2 covered. The front porch has a standard porch swing. The back porch has a outdoor table and chairs and chaise lounge chair.

Brian, LeeAnn and our Golden Doodles

  • 5 of 5

Well we spent a week at this lodging and found it very nice! 3-12-18 thru 3-19-18. The open floor plan worked well for us and our dogs. We explored during the day and came back to a comfortable place to enjoy our evenings. The kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms were nicely stocked. We enjoyed having Cricket ( the black lab ) come over and visit our fur balls. Lisa could not have been a nicer host. If we needed anything she was very fast at responding to us, usually within a few minutes. This is a place we plan to come back to.

Thanks Lisa!!

Very clean cabin, excellent water pressure, WIFI for my 3 year old at night, very well stocked with 2 Grills, plates, glasses and the cooking basics. The cabin is centrally located to Ouachita National Forest. This was our 2nd time renting here we always enjoy the porch swing during our stay and hope to return next year....

Nicely Equipped

  • 5 of 5

Nice home about 15 mins from the huge Metropolis of Mt. Ida. Clean and well furnished. Bring bottle water if you aren't used to well water, but everything else is provided.

Property owners were helpful, and right on the property if you need anything.
