About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This rustic cabin, known as the 'Minnow Bucket' is located on a bluff 300 Ft above the White River and Inspiration Valley. The view is just awesome ( I can't find a better word to describe it-the photos will show you.)Your private deck, with gas grill, allows a panoramic view you won't forget!

This is an ideal Honeymoon or romantic getaway cabin! It is located only three miles West of beautiful and world famous Thorncrown Chapel. The sumptuous interior of the cabin includes an oversize jetted tub, a king size bed, a great wood burning fireplace with a comfortable love seat strategically placed to allow you to enjoy the crackling fire. Turn on the music, a little cheese and wine, forget the outside world. It is just for you and your loved one, ALONE! What could be better?

All this for a budget price! Hard to believe but true. $169.00 for weekends and Holidays or Special events with the same view as a $500.00 per night cabin!

Please contact us concerning pets before booking. Pet fee is determined by the number of pets and size.

About Carla Short

I was born in Jackson, Mississippi and educated in my home state as well as Tennessee. I am an entrepreneur with investments in real estate in the Florida Coast as well as Arkansas. I also am CEO of a high tech hardware sales company.

Carla Short purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Carla Short chose Eureka Springs

I was invited to spend a spring break in NW Arkansas by a college classmate. It was an amazing experience! I spend the time in Eureka Springs. A very unique small town located in a beautiful setting of mountains, streams, valleys that defy description. The residents are a microcosm of the entire country due to the tendency of people coming to visit but returning to stay for the quiet country atmosphere. I enjoy outdoor activities such as boating, hunting and fishing. The Eureka Springs area is a Mecca of these activities as well as a marvelous community of artists.

What makes this cabin unique

I purchased the cabin as a peaceful retreat from the corporate world. The view is serene..the privacy is rejuvenating. I spend as much time as possible in the area and this cabin.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Awesome View! Very quiet and comfortable cabin. You have done an excellent job. We enjoyed it very much. We are looking forward to coming back again.Thanks

Beautiful views!

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect cabin for the two of us to take a break and relax in. We spent at least half our time on the deck just enjoying the view! The location is perfect for access to town but it feels like you are way out in the country!

Perfect Getaway, Idyllic Setting

  • 5 of 5

The panoramic scene from our deck was so relaxing. Distant roosters occasionally crowed to remind that it was not just a beautiful painting. The cabin was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a relaxing week. We even had Wi-Fi and satellite TV with movie channels. There are lots of things to do in Eureka Springs, and we did seek them out, but to be honest, we enjoyed our time at the cabin more than anything.

Wonderful stay, no complaints!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at Minnow Bucket. This was a very cozy location perfect for celebrating an anniversary, honeymoon or just a romantic getaway! We loved how warm the cabin was when we arrived, with firewood, a jacuzzi tub and extra blankets. We loved spending our mornings drinking coffee and tea on the back porch and watching the cute little trainboard of a town below. It was such a beautiful place tucked away in the hills yet only 15 minutes away from downtown Eureka Springs. We will definitely be staying here again next time we visit Eureka Springs!

Great house in the Ozarks

  • 5 of 5

Totally impressed with the Hillcrest house in Eureka Springs. The house was modern, well appointed, clean and in a perfect location overlooking the white river and unspoiled view of the valley and mountains. The bedrooms were adequate for couple occupancy and the house and decks and screened in porch hot tub made for a perfect rest.;;

Tip, bring your own pillow; house pillows very large and thick.

Highlight...very clean and well maintained.

Biggest issue: three of the bedrooms downstairs with only one bathroom for the downstairs guest.
