Secret Romantic Hideaways Across Arkansas.
Lakeshore Treehouse Resort in Diamond City over spring break. There are now three treehouses at the north end of Scenic Highway Seven, with two more to come. Enjoy great views of the lake and comfortable accommodations including full kitchens, huge decks and -- if you get the Arrowhead Ridge lodge, a double jacuzzi tub. Check out my story.
Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge near Eureka Springs. That's right, there are actually lodges on the property with the over 100 rescued big cats and bears at this refuge, and you can spend the night on-park where the live.
this home with a private dock. There are a lot of Little Red River and Greers Ferry accommodations available right now.
these hidden accommodations above the hustle and bustle of the downtown square are certainly worth a weekend away.
Spend the weekend in a Wild West saloon, or stable, or bank, at Diamonds in Murfreesboro. The wooded cabins built in 2013 are set up like a Western town, and there's plenty of activities to engage in.
Anchors Away Houseboats.
Have a plane? Fly off to your own fly fishing destination at Cotter, where you can stay in a home with your very own hangar, no joke!
Inn at the Mill. The Johnson Mill dates back to 1832... the hotel property combines the old country charm of the mill with an updated, contemporary hotel within. A four star experience.
solar-powered pad in the Ouachita Mountains.
1882 carriage house with a secret garden tucked in behind a residence near Little Rock's hot new SoMa District. Enter through a garden and enjoy a relaxing weekend in this two bedroom, two story barn with whirlpool tub, full kitchen and about everything you'll need for your perfect getaway. Pets welcome.
own private home on seven acres near Texarkana, with a stocked pond? That's right, you can catch your dinner and enjoy having this 1700 foot home to yourself, complete with a billiards room.
Catherine's Landing offers several different sizes of yurt, a round tent that's perfect for "glamping" and enjoying the outdoors.
Escape to an English Country Cottage in Mena, where you can enjoy flower gardens on a wooded hillside, a Queen sized bed and a jetted tub, in this 1920s cottage a couple of miles from town.
Like steampunk? Dig an industrial feel to your temporary dwellings? You need to head to Batesville to check out this austere, sharp-edged loft. Two bedrooms sleep up to five with full kitchen and lots of space.
Really want to get away from it all? This three bedroom home ten miles from Ash Flat may be plain, but it's a quarter mile from the nearest neighbor and situated on 125 acres of great hiking mountainland, with plenty of deer and wild turkey to keep you company.
tiny home? Up near Mountain View you can try one on for size. The extraordinary small one bedroom, one bath will just fit two people, and you'll learn whether or not tiny home living is right for you.
20 feet from the White River in Allison. The home features a queen size bed on the upper level and a full kitchen and living room downstairs. And wait until you get a look at the sink in the bathroom - it's made from a tree trunk!
1960s style mobile home carefully decorated and restored to prime condition. Don't worry, there's also a nearby creek for skinnydipping, if you don't mind the cold.
Dogwood Hills Guest Farm near Harriet.
