If you're looking to get away from it all, secluded, rustic, calm and peaceful Cave Creek Cabin is the right vacation rental for you! You can see more about us on You Tube and at our FB page. There you can tour Arkansas' best kept secret - our authentic 1840's hand-hewn log cabin in the Ozark mountains!
Ideal for family reunions and events, retreats, romantic weekends, honeymoons, elk and turkey hunts, float trips and hiking or mountain biking; this 2,600 square foot ridge-top cabin overlooks 125 acres of elk habitat. The acreage is a Certified Forest Stewardship property with 3/8 mile of year-round creek nestled in a valley setting below beautiful limestone cliffs. We're surrounded by the Gene Rush Wildlife Management Area (no hunting on the cabin property,) and we are only five miles from the Carver Input on the Buffalo National River, known for excellent canoeing and float trips.
Mountain breezes, rushing creeks and great views abound here. Build memories that will last a lifetime around the massive fireplace and outdoor fire pit. Moved from Kentucky to this secluded spot, restored and modernized for vacation fun, the large, yet cozy cabin sleeps 17. We feature a full walkout basement, fully equipped kitchen, huge front porch and patio with picnic tables and porch swing. There are two bedrooms, a loft and a walkout basement "bunkhouse," a great hangout for the kids. For your comfort and convenience there are two full baths.
When you are ready for some activity, there is a swimmin' hole, or fish the stream for small mouth bass and perch. Hiking, rock climbing, cave exploring, mountain biking, and magnificent star gazing are available right on the property. The bird and wildlife watching is great too! You may even see a bald eagle at the right time of year. Just look out the windows to watch deer graze by the barn almost every day. Grab your binoculars and take an early morning walk on the loop road around the cabin, returning to enjoy a cup of coffee on the porch.
The remote solitude here draws people to Cave Creek, but cell phone reception is good so you can stay in touch. If you can get them to come inside, or if a rainy day restricts outdoor fun, keep the kids happy with board games, puzzles and videos. There is no cable, so bring the kid's favorites or watch some of our great collection of movies and see the cabin building process caught on "film" too. We have a variety of paperback books for those who like a good read. In cooler months, relax in front of the crackling fireplace or snooze in the "bunkhouse" lounger and slow down for a moment at Cave Creek Cabin.
You are minutes from Sam's Throne for a fine hike. Richland Creek, Hurricane River Cave and Mystic Caverns are not far away. Brochures and business cards at the cabin will put you in touch with opportunities for horseback riding, zip-lining and more! We're ideally situated near the middle river input at Carver (5 miles.) Outfitters for Buffalo River floats are at St. Joe (34 miles,) Jasper (24 miles) and Ponca (38 miles.) Floating is seasonal and rain dependent, but a short drive to reach your outfitter is a great way to experience the beauty of Newton County and enjoy some of the best vistas Arkansas has to offer.
