This is a great place to give your head & mind some rest and get away from the human race. You can use this place to enjoy the natural beauty of Montgomery County, i.e. fishing, water skiing, boating, hunting, canoeing, crystal digging and/or mountain biking.

This home has 3 porches, 2 covered. The front porch has a standard porch swing. The back porch has a outdoor table and chairs and chaise lounge chair.

Awesome location if you want to get away from the city. Very peaceful and Lisa was a great hostess and would stay again if we're in the area.

Quiet and peaceful, middle of the woods in the middle of the woods! The cabin is wide open with a great kitchen, tons of counter space, a large front porch, lots of chairs and 2 decks. Did I mention it was surrounded by woods? Very beautiful bathroom and convenient laundry area, new furniture and a pretty comfortable king size bed. We added to and compiled a folder of trails, and beautiful stuff in the kitchen drawer on the left. Check out the antique store in Mt. Ida, it's a good one.

The home was clean & very inviting. All the amenities you would need in a secluded setting with an amazing view of the stars on a clear night.

We booked this trip last minute, and Lisa's positive and professional demeanor was beyond expectation. The house was cute and secluded, and had a beautiful wood stove - which came in handy our last night of the trip, as the weather turned precipitous. I Highly recommend the location if your trip plans center around the ouachita national forest.

We went to Lisa's place for Thanksgiving weekend with our Lab so we could go hiking in the Oauchita National Forest and relax. The house was just as advertised and had plenty of room outside for our dog to run and play with Lisa's dog. The house had everything we needed except ESPN (we wanted to enjoy college rivalry weekend). When we asked Lisa about it, she immediately offered to have the satellite package upgraded - and she did! So, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay - there are many trails within a 30 minute drive, a great grocery and a few restaurants in Mt. Ida (10-12 minutes away), canoeing nearby, and Lisa who saved the day. She is eager to help but gives you all the space you want.

My husband and I recently moved to the area from Vermont. We had finished raising our children and it was now our turn to be "us" again. We immediately fell in love with the scenery and the people. My husband is a logger by trade and I work from home. You will not be disappoin…
