About owner/ property manager

We live in Texas but we love Mountain View and consider it our second home so we acquired this gorgeous property to have a place to stay when we visit. We wanted to make it available to visitors to Mountain View to have a great place to stay right on the Historic square!

owner/ property manager purchased this cottage in 2012

Why owner/ property manager chose Arkansas

This property is unique because it's just across the street from the Mountain View Picking Park where music gatherings are a nightly occurence.

What makes this cottage unique

Location! Walking distance from shopping, restaurants, theaters, parks and open air folk music.

Hear The Music From The Front Porch!
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

Wonderful cottage in downtown mountain View

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a weekend stay at the Pickin Park Cottage. What a great stay it was! This house really has everything you need! It's less than a block away from the park where all the musicians play on weekend nights. You can sit on the wonderful front porch at sunset and listen to the music starting up. Then you can walk down the street, grab an ice cream and listen to the music. Or stroll the streets and window shop. The food at the Rainbow Cafe is not to be missed, or a trip to Tommy's Pizza, just down the road. The house is nicely appointed, clean and spacious. Each end of the house has a nice bedroom, a separate living room with a pull-out couch and tv, and a roomy bathroom. Each end of the house can be closed off from the main living room/kitchen area to allow for privacy, making it ideal for couples/families traveling together. The living room is spacious, with beautiful wood floors and ceiling, ample seating, large tv, skylights, fireplace, and bookshelf filled with books to read during your stay, as well as several decks of cards and a few board games. The kitchen had just about anything you might need to prepare and cook any meal. Nice washer and dryer in this area as well. It also has a back porch with seating, a small fenced back yard with a picnic table and gas grill. The front porch is wonderful, and we spent a lot of time on it during our stay. This cottage is only a few miles from the Ozark Folk Center and Blanchard Springs Caverns. The Stone Drive-In movie theatre is only a few miles away on Hwy 87. It's also about an hour away from Buffalo Point, if your trip includes a float trip on the Buffalo River (which I highly recommend). Overall, this is a wonderful house to stay in, and we will be returning!

Family Fun in Mountain View

  • 4 of 5

We rented this cottage for our family to gather to celebrate my Mother's 75th birthday.....very comfortable accommodations (with the exception being the sofa beds) for 4-generations---lots of room and this is by far the best stocked kitchen we have ever had in our travels that have included condo rentals in Destin, Gulf Shores & Branson! We prepared all our meals here at the cottage. Everyone in our group enjoyed sitting on the front porch and the back deck. Nice to be only a block from the town square, right diagonally across from the pickin' park and short walk to the city park ampitheater (a definite must see). I could fully visualize enjoying every season in Mountain View at this cottage---perhaps staying a full week just relaxing, reading a book from the vast cottage collection, playing board games, strolling the square and soaking in the peace & quiet! Check-in and out was easy, fast & friendly.

Mountain View is know as the Folk Music Capital of the world. Impromptu music gatherings can be found in the town square most any evening when the weather is nice. There is a State Park and a Zip Line Ropes Course withing in I mile. Blanchard Springs Caverns, a world class cavern system is located in the National Forest just 12 miles away. Several music theaters are within five minutes by walk or drive. Trout fishing is abundant in the crystal clear streams and rivers. Plenty of shopping, dining and music are just a short walk away!
