Don’t let the outside fool you! It may look like an ordinary old barn, but Big Red is the perfect getaway for large groups. Our rustic, yet luxurious, barndominium on the White River, is the perfect destination for a variety of events.
From family and friend gatherings to corporate team building events or church retreats - our barndominium will sleep sixteen comfortably.

The space
Pleasing everyone in your group is no easy feat, from the youngest member of your group to the oldest, there is something for everyone to enjoy! This beautiful barndominium offers multiple options for play or relaxation. If fishing is your pleasure, simply walk 230 yards, to the edge of the majestic White River, and cast your pole right off the shore! Need some help catching a big one? Talk to us about booking a trip with one of our professional fishing guides who will pick you up and drop you right back off at our property.
If fishing doesn’t interest you, your hosts rent kayaks, canoes, and tubes for a wonderful fun-filled day of floating down the river. We have plenty of activities for younger kiddos too! Right outside the barndominium is 4 beautiful, flat, manicured acres, perfect for a game of tag, corn hole, horseshoes, volleyball, football, or frisbee.
Too tired to play? Just need some R &R? Pull up a lawn chair, lay back, and relax with your favorite beverage, and watch the eagles soar!
The barndominium is equally divided into two suites that can be connected if desired. With two fully stocked kitchens, you will enjoy all the comforts of home for preparing gourmet meals. The two living areas, six beds, six baths, allows for tons of privacy for all. The extra-large water heater ensures no one takes a cold shower. The tin ceilings, cedar walls, and antique decor offer you a charming, rustic feeling of living in a barn with all the creature comforts!

Where you’ll be

Norfork, Arkansas, United States

Enjoy a great evening meal at PJ's River View Restaurant just 1 mile away. Great food & drink in a truly first-class restaurant! Check out Heidi's Ugly Cakes for lunch in the little town of Norfork, only 5 minutes. She's got the best deli sandwiches! Heidi's grilled cheese on a jalapeno cornbread is so yummy!

In 2019, my husband Doug and I made a life-changing decision. Since our youngest of four was about to leave the nest, we decided to buy a motorhome, sell everything we owned, and hit the road. With Doug working remotely as a Sales Engineer, it would be possible for us to pursue our dream of traveling the U.S. searching for a new spot to lay down roots while still having an income. We had not chosen a new state, but we knew it would be somewhere towards the south. From the moment our motorhome wheels rolled into the Ozark’s of Arkansas, we knew “ home” had found us. We wanted a property not just for ourselves, but where we could share our space with others. Doug and I both enjoy entertaining and along with our love for nature, and my passion for growing organic food, we felt a small resort would be just perfect for us. We rented a spot in an RV park on the White River and knew right away that we wanted to live very close to the water. We viewed over 10 resorts, but none fit our needs, then one night, I typed the words into my computer, “resorts for sale in Arkansas“ and up popped Riverside Retreat. We emailed the owners, set a time to view the property, and as the saying goes, “the rest is history”. We feel truly blessed to live and work on such a beautiful spot and we look forward to sharing our little piece of heaven with you! Welcome to the Majestic White River!
