Rustic Retreat is a fisherman's cabin on the banks of the Little Red River. A stroll down the stone steps and path to the custom dock gives you access to some of the best trout fishing in the area. Right from the private dock you can fish one of the local guides' favorite spots. Fire up the charcoal grill and you've caught supper! From the cabin it is about half a mile to the Red River Trout Dock and one and a half miles to Cow Shoals Walk In Access. What more could a fisherman want?
Families will love Rustic Retreat, our fully furnished cabin has two bedrooms and two full baths. A king size bed, 2 twin beds, and a convertible sofa provide room to sleep 6 comfortably. The open concept living area includes a fully equipped kitchen, eating area, 32" HDTV with cable package and DVD player, and wood burning fireplace. Sliding glass doors lead to the screened porch which is ideal for bird watching. Other wild life can be spotted all around deer, wild turkeys, bald eagles, and blue herons just to name a few.
For the non-fisherman the cabin is less than 15 minutes from the Dam Site Marina on Greers Ferry Lake. At the marina you can rent jet ski or boats for a day of fun on the lake. You can also swim at the recreation area on the lake, try rock climbing at Sugarloaf, or check out the new Mossy Bluff Disc Golf course. If hiking is your thing check out Buckeye, Mossy Bluff, Sugarloaf or Bridal Veil trails.
Rustic Retreat has something for everyone
We enjoyed the cabin and the dock. They had everything we needed for a nice quiet stay. The rock walk ways are a challenge but doable for an old codger like me. It was a quiet and comfortable week which is what we were looking for on this trip.
Our 1st experience with VRBO, was glad to be able to email actual owner with our questions & she responded very promptly. Very pleased with our accommodations, multi pictures of property helped make our decision. And price was reasonable.
We really enjoyed our time here the the Rustic retreat..Great place to just get away and relax. We loved the time warp 70's decor.. wouldnt' change a thing! .. well except maybe updating the cookware ;) but then we didn't come to cook! There are several great places to eat nearby.. El Rey was the bomb! Best meal we had in Heber Springs. We tried our best to catch some trout off the dock but they just were not biting.. however we did manage to catch a few with a guide one day.. i suppose they were just being picky! By far one of our best stays in Heber :)

We had a great time. The cabin was neat and clean and perfectly equipped. The steps down to the dock were precarious for two 80 year olds , but we made them many times. The fishing would probably have been much better if I knew more about trout fishing. Only caught two rainbows, but they were beauties. The fireflys at night made our stay magical . Brought back fond childhood memories.
Four stars for cabin.
My wife and our 4 kids (ages 3-13) stayed 3 nights at The Rustic Retreat. We had a blast! Perfect weather, great fishing (caught over 40 rainbow trout) all together, climbed Sugar Loaf mountain and hunted Eggs that the Easter bunny dropped off.
PRO's- great communication from owners, private dock( plenty of space with lights if needed), cool rustic appeal decor, screened in porch, stocked kitchen for everything you need to cook with, grounds were very nicely done and trimmed and cut neatly and a TV/record player/radio from early 1900's that worked!! I found it to be the coolest thing in the house!!
CON's- The rustic decor was nice but the couches, and bedding felt very old therefore created a bit of anxiety of bugs and cleanness. Wish i had a vacuum to help keep things picked up while there. The water hose was broken so i had to try and rig it to get water to the dock for cleaning fish.
I can guarantee that none of the CON's will keep us from going back though...really an awesome trip, great cabin and beautiful scenery.
Thanks to the Chesters for creating such a great place!!
