About this listing
Stay at this forest retreat in the Ozarks not far from Eureka Springs and Table Rock Lake. Your accommodations include a queen bed in a private room. You will also have your own bathroom. In your room you will find a TV, DVD player and a CD/Radio, or you can rock in the antique rocker and read a book. Also available is the covered deck overlooking a seasonal stream and the Ozark Mountains. There is plenty of parking
If you are coming to NW Arkansas for recreational opportunity both Table Rock Lake and Beaver Lake are nearby. Fishing on the White River and Roaring River is a brief trip. I have parking that will accommodate a boat (if you are good at backing a trailer) and there are several marinas within a couple of miles.
If you are here to canoe, kayak, bike or hike I am experienced in all and offer guidance and assistance with put in and take out of canoes and kayaks. There is a charge for this service and please make a request at the time of the reservation.
Finally, please read the house rule before making an inquiry or booking a room. I have specific requirements before I will book a room.
Guest will be given a 4 digit code to enter the house. It is usually the same as the last 4 digits of their phone number. The code is entered when they check in and deleted when they check out.
Interaction with guests
I allow my guest to choose the level of interaction. Some hang out in the living room or on the deck and talk while others close the door to their room and never come out except to leave. Either and anything in between is OK with me.
The neighborhood is secluded and quiet. Only one other house is partially visible through the trees. I have no lawn, only wildflowers and native plants and trees.
There is public transportation, both bus and trolley in Eureka Springs. There is no public transportation near the house.
Common sense rules. We ask that you engage in quiet activities after 11:00 PM. Continental breakfast served between 7:00 and 9 AM. No smoking inside the house. Please do not make a mess in the common areas. Limit alcohol consumption to reasonable levels. No guest without clear permission from you host. Your host appreciates a general idea of return times. I do not pass out keys, instead you will be given a guest code for electronic access. The code expires about checkout time on your last day.
I live in the Ozarks for the scenery, the recreation and the people. I am semi-retired, a fly fisherman and have a canoe. In the past I have kayaked and rafted the Colorado River in western Colorado and in the canyon lands of Utah. I rode my bicycle from Grand Junction, Colorado to Denver over 300 miles crossing two mountain passes over 12,000 ft. and one of over 11,000 ft. I have also canoed the Boundary Waters of Minnesota and Ontario, traveling over 80 miles in the process.
While not as active in these pursuits as in the past I talk a good game and if you are coming to the Ozarks for any of these activities I can give you some pointers as to where to go hiking, mountain biking, fishing and canoeing and kayaking.
My house is out in the woods, but within easy driving distance of Eureka Springs, Table Rock and Beaver Lakes. The White River and Roaring River are nearby. It is a great base camp for those who are coming to the Ozarks for recreation.
I do have one, very friendly Basset Hound who loves company. Judging by people’s reactions she is far more charming than I am. We both like guest and would enjoy having you stay with us.
