If you're looking to get away from it all, secluded, rustic, calm and peaceful Cave Creek Cabin is the right vacation rental for you! It is Arkansas' best kept secret - an authentic 1840's hand-hewn log cabin in the Ozark mountains!

Ideal for family reunions and events, retreats, romantic weekends, honeymoons, elk and turkey hunts, float trips and hiking or mountain biking; this 2,600 square foot ridge-top cabin overlooks 125 acres of elk habitat. The acreage is a Certified Forest Stewardship property with 3/8 mile of year-round creek nestled in a valley setting below beautiful limestone cliffs. We're on Cave Creek and are surrounded by the Gene Rush Wildlife Management Area (no hunting on the cabin property,) and we are only five miles from the Carver Input on the Buffalo National River, known for excellent canoeing and float trips.

Mountain breezes, rushing creeks and great views abound here. Build memories that will last a lifetime around the massive fireplace and outdoor fire pit. Moved from Kentucky to this secluded spot, restored and modernized for vacation fun, the large, yet cozy cabin sleeps 17. We feature a full walkout basement, fully equipped kitchen, huge front porch and patio with picnic tables and porch swing. There are two bedrooms, a loft and a walkout basement "bunkhouse," a great hangout for the kids. For your comfort and convenience there are two baths; one has a tub/shower combination, the other a full walk-in shower.

When you are ready for some activity, there is a swimmin' hole, or fish the stream for small mouth bass and perch. Hiking, rock climbing, cave exploring, mountain biking, and magnificent star gazing are available right on the property. The bird and wildlife watching is great too! You may even see a bald eagle at the right time of year. Just look out the windows to watch deer graze by the barn almost every day. Grab your binoculars and take an early morning walk on the loop road around the cabin, returning to enjoy a cup of coffee on the porch.

The remote solitude here draws people to Cave Creek, but cell phone reception is good so you can stay in touch. If you can get them to come inside, or if a rainy day restricts outdoor fun, keep the kids happy in our "Kids Kave" for table games, foosball and Direct TV. Your smartphone's hotspot can get you online with the smart TVs. We have a variety of paperback books for those who like a good read. In cooler months, relax in front of the crackling fireplace or snooze in the lounger and slow down for a moment at Cave Creek Cabin.

You are minutes from Sam's Throne for a fine hike. Richland Creek and Mystic Caverns are not far away. Brochures and business cards at the cabin will put you in touch with opportunities for horseback riding, zip-lining and more! We're ideally situated near the middle river input at Carver (5 miles.) Outfitters for Buffalo River floats are at St. Joe (34 miles,) Jasper (24 miles) and Ponca (38 miles.) Floating is seasonal and rain dependent, but a short drive to reach your outfitter is a great way to experience the beauty of Newton County and enjoy some of the best vistas Arkansas has to offer.

This cabin exceeded our expectations! Very clean, comfortable, and spacious. As advertised, you do need the appropriate vehicle if you want to drive to the creek; we did and it was worth it! First cabin we’ve stayed in that we would recommend.

Mindy H.

It was peaceful and relaxing! There was plenty of room for all of us, we had 3 families go. Everything there was very thoughtful for all age groups and we hope to enjoy a stay in the future!!

Debra B.

Very convenient process. Finding, contacting, renting, etc

A great place to stay and stay there. Definately remote and that's a good thing for us.

This was a pit stop on our way back home from a long road trip and it’s sooo much better than a hotel! Woke up early to see the sunrise and drank my coffee while the birds chirped. The roads up to the cabin are mostly gravel so glad we had an suv. I pinned my gps coordinates in advance on google maps and found it easiest to get to the cabin that way. We’ll definitely come back to this location!

We spent a week with a small group of friends at Cave Creek Cabin and had a great time. We were there in late July and the swimming hole was still plentiful. We spent hours just enjoying the peace and quiet on the porch. The interior of the cabin was nice and cozy and we cooked in the kitchen daily. We took drives to the AR Grand Canyon and to the small town of Gilbert and found plenty of hiking in the area. We'd definitely come back!

This property exceeded my expectations. It was nicely presented and clean. When it says secluded. It really means secluded. I was not prepared for how removed it was. But overall we really enjoyed it. I would definately book here again.

Jesus R.

Definitely will be returning. Thanks!

The hardest part was getting to the cabin in our minivan- pretty uneven and confusing roads as you would expect for some place so secluded. But that was also part of the experience and it was something of an achievement when we got in:) After the kids explored the grounds and the game room and the adults took in the view from the kitchen, we settled in for the weekend. The highlight was the Buffalo river kayak trip (you put in from about an hours drive away) which was definitely beautiful and made our long drive worth it. There was ample space and a hose to set up a play pool for the kids by the cabin. There was enough cutlery and bedding. The only downside was that we set forth with the kids to the trek down to the river and that proved to be too challenging for our group and we had to turn back after a particularly precipitous section. There may be an alternate route but we did not bother to ask. Barring the spotty cellphone reception, Paula was very approachable and helped us with any questions. Maintaining such a secluded cabin cannot be without effort and I want to thank the managers and owner for renting out this little peice of heaven. I would again make the drive from Dallas just for the kayaking experience alone and I would not stay anywhere else.
