Imagine sipping your morning coffee or enjoying a tall glass of lemonade perched upon the front porch swing & rocking chairs of a beautiful & quaint 2 bedroom cedar cabin. Lovingly cared for and maintained, it has a 30x8 rear deck. Inside the gas logs will keep you cozy while you enjoy the 32 inch flat screen with satellite. There is an outside fire pit, so build a campfire and become a kid again while you stargaze into the heavens. Located on a hillside, this cozy cabin has everything you need for a 'getaway' vacation. Turkey and deer are abundant. Access to the White River, Jo Jo's Catfish Warf and Anglers Restaurant are just 1 mile down the hill.

Please keep a paper copy for the trip or save it on your cell phone for your convenience.

Friendships and the easy going pace of life. Everybody is a friend in Mountain View, AR! Many bargains can be found while shopping in Mountain View area shops. The privacy and location of the cabin is perfect too!
The cabin and setting is very relaxing. Our favorite activities are trout fishing in the Winter, building fires in our primitive fire pit, listening for wildlife and the train whistle down below in the valley near the White River! Love the getaway! The rear deck is a good sit down and take it easy spot!
We were looking for a weekend away with our young boys. They loved the cabin in the mountains. It was very inviting and had everything you need for a quick get away with the feel of home. We took advantage of the local attractions of the Ozark Folk Center & the Blanchard Caverns. The boys loved both places. We found a local brick oven pizza place, Portico, that we really liked.
Side note... I read a review with that mentioned the road to the cabin. We had no trouble even with it raining. A section is gravel but held up well.
Even though it was a quick trip, we had a great time at the cabin. We saw turkeys as soon as we drove up, and we all enjoyed sitting on the porch and reading. It was a nice relaxing weekend, which is just what we were looking for. The Ozark Folk Center was incredible, and we can't wait to start planning our next trip back.
When driving up the gravel road, we didn't know what to expect. But once we opened the front door, we knew we picked the perfect place. It is secluded, which is why we initially chose to stay here. The interior is beautifully decorated, and most importantly, CLEAN! Beds were comfy- like being at home. We enjoyed the wildlife: deer, rabbits, birds mostly. I enjoyed the back porch, especially in the mornings with a cup of coffee. Blanchard Springs, the National park, Loco Ropes, water craft rentals, the folk center... All just a short drive up the road. We will definitely have to stay here again. We would still be there if we didn't have to come home to tend to our dog & chickens.
We loved the cabin. We also enjoyed the peace and quiet sitting on the back porch. The cabin is not to far from town and activities. The owners were very nice and accommodating. We will definitely stay again.
My two sons and I spent an enjoyable getaway in the lovely area of Mountain View. The cabin was very private, no close neighbors to contend with as we sat on the porch and played our guitars and sang. All of the accommodations were perfect. I highly recommend it to anyone.
Gracie's Place is really quite lovely; beautifully decorated, fully stocked, very peaceful. But there are some things you should know beforehand. The road going up to the cabin is not paved. It's barely gravel since all the rains have left deep gullies on the sides and exposed large boulders in the center. Luckily we had 4-wheel drive, but after a few times negotiating the bumps and grinds it gets old. There was a stray cat on the property -- we reported it the first day but no one came to pick it up. As it turned out the cat had fleas and ticks, although we did not let it inside the cabin. The central air conditioning stopped working. The repairman did come and got it going again, but that lasted only one night. Luckily, again, it cooled off at night while we were there and the window unit was sufficient. But the central air unit should be replaced as soon as possible. Of all those, the road was the issue we least looked forward to negotiating every day and just might cause us to look elsewhere before booking Gracies again. Still, Mountain View is a unique place to visit and we enjoyed our time in the Ozarks.
