You home-away-from-home is located in rural Guion, Arkansas, on the banks of the White River. Here, you can relax by fishing for various types of trout for which this river is famous, such as: Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, and Brook Trout. Located perhaps a mere half an hour away from Mountain View, the “Folk Music Capitol of the World,” the opportunities for adventure and merriment are nearly endless. For your inner adventurer, there are attractions such as Loco Ropes, a treetop obstacle course, and Blanchard Springs Caverns’ “Wild Cave Tour,” where you can climb, crawl, and explore through caves with your friends and family (Be prepared to get muddy and have a good time!). For the more relaxed vacationer, Blanchard Springs Caverns has guided tours, in which you can walk through the caves and see a variety of stalactites, stalagmites, and little cave-dwelling creatures such as salamanders. There are also multiple hiking and biking tours near the Ozark Mountain Folk Center for those who enjoy admiring nature in all of its raw beauty. After your adventures, Mountain View is home to some unique dining options. Homemade ice cream and old-fashioned sodas are available at Woods Soda Fountain, Tommy’s Famous Pizza is home to delicious Pizza and Ribs, and Jo Jo’s Catfish House has the best Catfish in town.

Great place to get away
We met up with family and kids for a long weekend, and this place was amazing! There was more than enough room, inside and outside! Everything was very clean. The kitchen is fully equipped. The back porch is incredible at night! I cannot recommend this place enough!
One thing to note - there is no cell phone service once you get into the town. AT&T works some, but no other carriers had service. We ended up loving this aspect, but it was a bit hectic trying to get the maps and key instructions since I just assumed I would login to the app once we got close.
Great views! Super nice, plenty of space and ver well kept. Right up against the white river.
Fantastic house with great views! First class home with plenty of space near Mountain View. Really enjoyed the river views and how close to fishing it was. Very clean
Beautiful and Secluded
Me and both of my grown kids with children of their own all lost our homes to hurricane Harvey. The last five months have been very stressful for all of us. We wanted and needed to get away just for a few days.This was a great place for that.
My family of 13 stayed at the home in Guion for 5 nights. Let me tell you, you should arrive the first night of your stay in the daylight hours! We did not. We arrived around 8pm and our GPS was not working in this area. We went down the winding dirt river road for several miles until we got to the Williamson crossing mentioned on the map.
When we arrived we were in a valley surrounded by beautiful mountains. The house was beautiful. It was in a very quiet area. We passed very few other homes.
The inside of the home was great. There was plenty of room for all of us. But one of the counted bedrooms is a futon bedroom off of the master and one of the counted bedrooms is the loft which had 3 beds. There are actually three private king sized bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. The arrangement worked perfect for us because we were traveling with kids and grandkids. The house was very clean and aptly stocked. There was a major problem with lady bugs everywhere...in your bed, closets, luggage.
Outside, the house was surrounded by mountains with beautiful sunrise and sunsets. There was a nice fire pit to sit around but no chairs. It is a good drive into town so I would advise planning on cooking meals.
Some things that the owner should address are:
1) Instructions for the zoned heat/air controls. Some of us froze, some were too hot. Very difficult to figure out which thermostat controlled which room.
2) Map. I received a hand drawn map to get to the house. It was drawn correctly but it would help if some mileage were added and maybe add in some landmarks. We turned around a couple of times because we thought we had gone too far. GPS did not work here!
3) Address the lady bug infestation
4) Add folding sports chairs
4) Send contact information with managers name and number. We had to go to a neighbors home to get them to call for us when some pipes busted.
All in all I would rate our stay a 4 out of 5. The seclusion and lack of WiFi or cell service actually caused the kids and adults to be more creative and probably spend more time together talking and cooking. Some would consider this a drawback.
To summarize, we had a great time and the house was very nice and very quiet which is what we all needed!
Beautiful and breathtaking!
Amazing home with amazing views! The locals are nice and friendly! Many trails to hike and ride ATVs. The river is just feet away to do some fishing! Josh was great to work with and always had prompt replies! Our family had a great time!
We had a great time at the house. If you are looking for a beautiful and secluded place, this is it.
The home was clean and very nice.
Great space for fun with friends. The most beautiful views from the decks.
