Mount Magazine View Cottage/Cabin - A Great Escape in Arkansas

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage


About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + queen size hide a bed sofa, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

TAKE A LOOK!! The Cedar cabin we call The Ranch Cabin is ready. If our calendar shows full, please contact us since cancellations do occur and don't always get posted immediately. . Many of our former guests have been eagerly waiting for this upgrade. I have added pictures to show the inside living room and the outside view from the covered porch.

Get ready for hiking, rock climbing, swimming, boating, fishing, golfing, bicycle riding, tennis, hang gliding, antique hunting, wine tasting, museums, and Subiaco Academy which are all nearby. We are much more reasonable than the Mt. Magazine cabins or the Petit Jean Mountain cabins and have less restrictions.

The Ranch Cabin is a luxury cabin nestled at the base of Mount Magazine, the highest point between the Rockies and the Alleghenies. The cabin is private and isolated and has a gorgeous view of Mount Magazine from the fully furnished deck and the covered porch. The little house is fully furnished with a hide-a-bed couch in the living room and a recliner for him (or her) Outside on the deck, a fantastic night sky will greet you with stars so stupendous on clear cloudless nights it will literally take your breath away. And August is especially great with visible meteor showers. Grab a quilt and a pillow and spend half of the night outside.

You can nap in the hammocks during the day underneath the trees, or roam in the woods, build a fire in the rock garden in the woods and enjoy a good old fashioned cook out with hot dogs, marshmallows, and more. Plenty of wood provided. You just have to gather it. If you get tired of being outside we have supplied the cottage with Dish TV, many, many games, books, and many videos for you to enjoy.

Nearby is great hiking and swimming and magnificent Mount Magazine, one of the jewels in the crown of the Arkansas Parks System. You will experience fantastic photo ops, hang gliding, hiking, and a visitor center at the summit. On the way up, stop at pristine Cove Lake for a great swim. Enjoy also award winning dining nearby, wineries, and museums, float the Mulberry just 40 miles north, and travel an easy drive north to Eureka Springs, South to Hot Springs, or East to Little Rock. At Jack Creek and Knoppers Ford recreation areas you may even catch a glimpse of a shy black bear as you swim, picnic, hike, and enjoy the bluffs. Deer and coyote, owls and other wildlife are regular visitors at the cottage. And the whippoorwills will serenade you to sleep in the spring and summer months. Enjoy butterflies In June and herb hunting as your knowledge of nature grows.

Why Walene Beeler chose Magazine

Ott Clare bought this property at the base of Mt Magazine in 1958. The original homesite, which originally had a log cabin, but a new house was built in 1990 on the same site. The cabin is on this property. Many locals have said we have the prettiest view of the mountain. Better than they have seen anywhere else in the county.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the peace and quiet here and the way the attributes of the mountain seem to be constantly changing. Sunrise and sunset can be dramatic. The whippoorwills in the spring and summer are so relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was trying to submit a review on your site and couldn't figure out how. First, I wanted to say how sorry I am for the misunderstanding about my inlaws coming up. I honestly did not think they were coming up this year. I did not find out until Thursday morning. Now for my review if you don't mind submitting it on your site for me ----

I highly recommend Circle C Cottages. The owners are amazing people. Jenny's cottage is beautiful. Has all the comforts of home. My boys thoroughly enjoyed being able to just head out a s go fishing (even tho they aren't very good at it!). The location is perfect for all the spots we wanted to visit this year. The views are great! We hope to see you again next year!! Thank you so much, The Purdons Naples, Texas

Isolated and uncomfortable. Would never stay there again for more reasons I have time to write about.

Nothing fancy, but something special.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Mt. Magazine View Cottage was wonderful. While the cabin is not a fancy place whatsoever, it is extremely clean and comfortable with great views. Very peaceful. The cabin is stocked with everything you might need, and the owner has gone to great lengths to anticipate what little extras her guests may appreciate. She left us a pie pan of cinnamon rolls that were awesome- a nice way to start your day. For us, the best part was the resident cat who lives on the front porch. She is a delight! Very friendly and loving, and sweet as can be. She made our visit very special, and we would return again just for that reason! Overall, our stay in this cabin was the highlight of our vacation, and we highly recommend it.

Very cozy

  • 5 of 5

Cozy and homey. Very comfortable. The owner met us when we pulled up and showed the property and made sure all of our needs were met. Very personable. The last place we stayed was nice, but we never saw the owners; never saw anyone but the maid a couple times. Great view of Magazine Mountain from the fron yard. It’s a 40 minute drive to the top of Magazine, but that’s to be expected with mountain roads. This place is away from town, 2 1/4 miles off the pavement, so be prepared for that. It’s secluded, but not remote. We will definitely stay here again if we ever come back to this part of the state and we’ll also recommend it to other people.
