Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Little Missouri Fly Fishing Cottage at 16 Factory Site Road is within 3 minutes of all the best accesses to the Little Missouri, the best kept trout stream secret in Arkansas. And for you diamond hunters, we are 5 minutes down the road from the Crater of Diamonds.

Our cottage sits secluded in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains. Cozy in the fall and winter months, just sit back and enjoy a fire in the Fisher Stove. During the fall the hardwoods on the property add just a bit of color to the 2 acre spread.

Yes, the Crater of Diamonds State Park is the attraction around here, and they do find REAL diamonds almost every day out there. We are 5 minutes from the park, so you can go work your luck, and come back for an afternoon nap when you are ready.

Should you be a stream trout fisherman, or lake fisherman, bring your catch back to a fully equipped kitchen, or head into Murfreesboro, Nashville, or Glenwood for one of several cuisine restaurants. For you fly fishermen and women, our little secret stream down in Southwest Arkansas is stocked from late October to late April, with fly fishing year round. A novice and experienced fly fisherman's dream not too far from home. Local guide available. You do need a license and stamp which you can get locally.

Our cottage is accessible to the great Ouachita mountains just up the road for you hikers and outdoor lovers. If you like walks in the woods and along the river, this one is for you.

Just 2 minutes from Murfreesboro,5 minutes from Crater of Diamonds State Park, 5 minutes from Lake Greeson and Narrows Dam landing, Wegner's and Coleman's Quartz Crystal mines are 40 minutes away (nothing but rave reviews from rock hounds), 4 State Parks within short distance, and 1 National forest and the Hot Springs National Park within an hour.

As of spring 2018 new mattresses, refreshed floors and bath, fresh paint, new washer dryer, 40” tv on DirectTV, new air and heat unit.

About Mark

Mark and Suzanne are Texans originally, but found Arkansas 33 years ago and settled here to run a business and raise a family. Both our sons and daughter in law attended Arkansas schools and colleges. We truly love being Arkansans and everytime we leave for the crowded metropolises, we feel the warmth of the area as we return.

Mark purchased this house in 1997

Why Mark chose Murfreesboro

We love the closeness of a truly unique small town area with plenty of things to see in nature. From Mark's passion for fly fishing for trout, sailing and flying, farming, golf and tennis, geocaching, and the outdoors to Suzanne's love of the beauty of nature, and grandkids, Murfreesboro and the surrounding area have it all. And the beauty is, people have not overrun the area. It still has small town appeal with a low amount of traffic, unlike other popular places in the area like Hot Springs and Branson. We like it so much we have purchased another home here and live here in retirement.

What makes this house unique

Fly fishing on a 5 mile stretch of water (best season is February to June 1), a lake and boat marina within 5 minutes of the house, the Crater of Diamonds 5 minutes away, natural beauty of the lower Ouachita mountains, the color in the spring and fall, wildlife galore, and few people.

Pleasant relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We were at the cottage for a long weekend. It was very comfortable and relaxing. Close proximity to Crater of Diamonds State Park and Wegner's Crystal Mine. Mark was a gracious host even though he had been called out of town during our stay. He made sure we knew he was just a phone call away if we had any questions. We would definately stay again. :)

1st time visiting Arkansas

  • 4 of 5

My husband, myself and our little pup stayed 3 nights and absolutely loved it! The owner, Mark is a super nice guy and checked in with us throughout the stay to make sure we were ok. The cottage is a cool little house with chickens and goats in the back. If you want a quiet and out of the way place, this is for you. There is so much to do in the area, we ran out of time! We went to Crater of Diamonds State Park, Old Washington State Park, Lake Greeson, Little Missori River, and Hot Springs National Park. Visit Arkansas if you've never been!

comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a few days and enjoyed the area. Mark was accommodating and helpful. The interactions with the chickens and goats were a good diversion for my son. He loved feeding the goats. The beds were comfortable, the cabin was clean, and the road the cabin was on was quiet. I would book this same cabin when returning to the area. Thank you again for everything Mark!!

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting Arkansas for the first time! We stayed at Little Missouri Fly Fishing Cottage and we really enjoyed it. The goats and chickens were fun to interact with and it was nice to be just a couple of miles from town. We were able to walk every day we were there and if we needed to run back to town it took a minute or two. Mark was great and very helpful, we checked in with us and gave us great suggestions. We really enjoyed everything!

Love love loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house. It was so perfect for myself, my mom, and my two kids to stay while we were on Spring Break hunting diamonds. The house had everything we needed. Only things we had to bring were food and our personal items. Mark was so friendly and helpful. Super nice person. We plan to stay here every time we can make it to Murfreesboro.

long weekend stay

  • 3 of 5

We had a good long weekend stay in the house. Small but perfect for what we needed. Loved the goats & chickens. However, the house was dirty. Cobwebs everywhere, things splattered on the walls in the back bedroom, and the floor was so sticky & gross that we didn't take our shoes off. Also had a musty smell. Didn't seem like anyone really cleans the house, yet the 'cleaning person' had a tip jar out. My tip would be to hire a new cleaning person. Mark was very nice and helpful with recommendations of things to see/do/eat. We enjoyed our stay overall.
