Riverside Retreat is a haven for couples and families to enjoy a peaceful and secluded setting while having the river with beautiful rock formations right out your back door.
Besides enjoying the amenities and comfort of our well appointed cabin, guests can enjoy canoeing, fishing, grilling, roasting over the fire pit, melting away stress in the 2 person Jacuzzi jetted tub, and relaxing and enjoying nature.
The cabin sits on a bluff right on the Mountain Fork River with direct access to the river.
A 3 person canoe, life jackets, and paddles are provided complimentary for your use. You can paddle approximately 1 mile up river and ½ mile down river with lots of fishing spots and also fish from the bank off of the rock formations in front of the cabin. Fish most often caught are perch, goggle-eye, and bream. You can also catch bass, catfish, and occasionally crappie.

Riverside Retreat was built in 2005 and was our residence until 2012. We are making it available for others to enjoy. It sits on a bluff directly on the Mountain Fork River which is a very quiet river with beautiful rock formations on the property. We now live back in Mena to be closer to family.

It is such a peaceful, relaxing place to be. You'll feel it as soon as you turn off the highway and begin the path down the tree-lined county road. At the top of our driveway, there is a view of Rich Mountain. On a clear night, you can see the lights of the lodge. At the bottom of the driveway awaits your peaceful getaway - surrounded by trees and overlooking a gorgeous section of the Mountain Fork River. On the back deck, you are among the treetops that rise from the bluff. The cabin was built to provide amenities for a romantic couples getaway or honeymoon but will sleep a family of four.
Imaculate & clean cabin new to the rental market in 2012, located on a bluff directly overlooking the Mountain Fork River. Beautiful view from 12’ x 32’ deck on back of cabin plus a lower deck by river with built-in bench. All wood interior trimmed in cedar w/tile & laminate flooring - no carpet. Access to river for canoeing or fishing. We have a canoe, paddles, & life jackets available for use at no additional charge.
Two-person jacuzzi tub.
Two-sided fireplace (opens to living area and bedroom).
We cannot thank you enough for allowing us to enjoy your cabin. We leave here relaxed and well rested. :)
What a magical place to spend my birthday. The cabin had everything that you could ask for and more. The view to the river was spectacular. The owners could not have been more accommodating. They are truly gifted to know what a cabin rented wants so they can enjoy themselves.
This cabin is amazing! Every detail was thought of for comfort and convenience, from spices to nice pans to a fishing pole - anything and everything it seemed. The owners were so accommodating and wonderful. The location is breathtaking. I can't wait to return - simply one of the best trips ever!
We absolutely loved our stay! The cabin isn't too far off the beaten path, but just enough to feel like you are away from it all giving you the ability to focus on each other. On top of that, the owners are extremely good with keeping the cabin in tip-top shape and well stocked. We only had to bring food and clothes....and some lighter fluid for the grill. We were blessed to be there on a snowy weekend, which gave us an even more breathtaking view. The only downside to the snow was that we didn't get to utilize the canoe. However, that just gives us one more reason to visit again in a warmer month.....like we needed another reason! As for the owners, their communication was spot on. You can tell they take pride in their cabin and want to make sure their visitors are beyond satisfied. You cannot go wrong with this rental!
If you need to get away from it all, this is the place for you. We have been twice now, and we will return. It is cozy, secluded, serene, and immaculate. And the owners are so nice and very responsive to any inquiries.
Still, if you want to explore the area, there are some great restaurants and antique shops in nearby Mena.
Finally, if you stay for a few days, the drive up to Queen Wilhelmina Lodge is well worth the trip. The vistas are fantastic. The view from the lodge is fabulous, and the food at the restaurant is wonderful.
We look forward to our next stay at Riverside Retreat.
Had a great time. Enjoyed the cabin and its secluded location. Nice section of river to canoe and enjoyed the fall foliage.
Everything was to my expectations or exceeded it! Wonderful spot! Fully stocked with everything one could need. Love the privacy there! Thanks for a wonderful place to stay. Looking forward to bringing my family there!
