About Bob and Pam Hankins

Little Cabin in the Woods is the result of two couples dreaming of the ideal get-away. Rod and Anita, both educators, and Bob and Pam, a lawyer and an educator, are long-time friends who dreamed of owning a cabin as a home-away-from-home. Now retired, we enjoy traveling, grandchildren, the St. Louis Cardinals, corgis, and spending extended periods of time at the cabin.

Bob and Pam Hankins purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Bob and Pam Hankins chose Jasper

Little Cabin in the Woods was not purchased---it was designed and built by the owners! With the assistance of a Mennonite father-son team, the cabin took form over two years of persistence and hard work. Our 'fingerprints' are all over the cabin. We painted and hung the cabinets, laid the hickory hardwood floor, made and hung the curtains, and decorated.

Little Cabin in the Woods is a labor of love for us. It provides a get-away and a place of solitude that is unmatched in one of the most beautiful best-kept secrets in the US----Newton County, Arkansas.

What makes this cabin unique

We created the ambiances you will enjoy! The cathedral-like windows that stream the outdoors in, the wrap-around deck, the jacuzzi tub, the handcrafted cedar bedstead, the photos, the stain-glass window in the front door are among the unique features of the cabin.

Little Cabin in the Woods is remote enough to give you the feeling of solitude yet close enough to Jasper to allow you to run into the grocery story to pick up that forgotten item.

This cabin is gorgeous, the pictures don’t do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is as advertised, it had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable. Plenty of room for all of us (6 adults, 3yr old & 12 week old puppy) we spent a lot of time on the huge wrap around deck with the amazing view. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. Plenty of linens. We will for sure book this cabin again. Had a wonderful family weekend.

As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

All of the other reviews do a good job of describing the cabin, its location, and the surrounding area. We also had a couple of excellent saves by the owners--boiled water order and refund to offset the cost of bottled water, to name one. Anyway, thoroughly enjoyed the stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind note! So happy you enjoyed your stay at the cabin. Regardless of things out of our control, i.e., boil water order due to county water main break, it is important to us that we do everything possible to ensure our guests have an excellent experience. A refund for bottled water was the least we could do! We hope you can return in the future. Thanks again for staying with us! Anita and Rod, Pam and Bob

Great property

  • 5 of 5

The little (big) cabin was very cozy and clean. Everything you could need was available. The location was great and information packets/journals that was at the cabin from the owners and previous guest were super helpful. I would love to visit in the fall! Such a beautiful place to see and hike. Only thing that was disappointing was the river was way low so we couldn’t float or see any waterfalls. Can’t wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and for your review. Our goal is for our guests to always find the cabin clean, comfortable, and functional! We do hope you can return--mid-to-late fall or spring are the best times to find floatable water in the Upper Buffalo River, and fall is especially beautiful when the leaves change colors--best time for fall colors is usually last half of October or even early November depending on the weather each year. We look forward to serving you again! Sincerely, Anita and Rod Pam and Bob

Little Cabin in the Woods is located within miles of the first designated national river, the Buffalo National River. With multiple 'put-ins,' the river offers leisurely canoeing, off-river exploration of historical sites, hiking, and horse-back riding. The road 'up the mountain' (74 West) is a beautiful scenic drive. Don't miss dining at the Low Gap Cafe for unbelievable cuisine! Highway 7 South also provides a lovely scenic drive. Stop at the Arkansas Grand Canyon for a breath-taking view. While at the Arkansas Grand Canyon, enjoy lunch or dinner at Cliff House Inn.

Be sure to make a visit to the Ponca area part of your trip! Ponca is approximately 12 miles west on Highway 74. (Turn right onto 74) View elk from the comfort of your vehicle. (Elk were re-introduced to Arkansas recently and are thriving. Elk can be viewed by turning left onto Highway 43 and driving a short distance. Additionally, enjoy the historical 100-year-old Boxley Baptist Church which still holds services, the historical farmstead, and the Elk museum in Ponca. Jasper, the county seat for Newton County, has its own delights. The Ozark Cafe is a time-honored tradition that serves down-home cooking to visitors and locals. Antiquing at Emma's Museum of Junk is a treat not to miss. The Chamber of Commerce offers hand-crafted items from local craftsmen as well as information about the area. Want to float the Buffalo? Several concessionaires offer canoe rentals, drop-off and and pick-up services.

Of course, Branson and all its entertainment venues is just one hour away from the cabin.
