About Bob and Pam Hankins

Little Cabin in the Woods is the result of two couples dreaming of the ideal get-away. Rod and Anita, both educators, and Bob and Pam, a lawyer and an educator, are long-time friends who dreamed of owning a cabin as a home-away-from-home. Now retired, we enjoy traveling, grandchildren, the St. Louis Cardinals, corgis, and spending extended periods of time at the cabin.

Bob and Pam Hankins purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Bob and Pam Hankins chose Jasper

Little Cabin in the Woods was not purchased---it was designed and built by the owners! With the assistance of a Mennonite father-son team, the cabin took form over two years of persistence and hard work. Our 'fingerprints' are all over the cabin. We painted and hung the cabinets, laid the hickory hardwood floor, made and hung the curtains, and decorated.

Little Cabin in the Woods is a labor of love for us. It provides a get-away and a place of solitude that is unmatched in one of the most beautiful best-kept secrets in the US----Newton County, Arkansas.

What makes this cabin unique

We created the ambiances you will enjoy! The cathedral-like windows that stream the outdoors in, the wrap-around deck, the jacuzzi tub, the handcrafted cedar bedstead, the photos, the stain-glass window in the front door are among the unique features of the cabin.

Little Cabin in the Woods is remote enough to give you the feeling of solitude yet close enough to Jasper to allow you to run into the grocery story to pick up that forgotten item.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Little Cabin in the Woods, although the word "Spacious" is more fitting than "Little" - ha! This property exceeded my expectations in every way. The view from the porch is exquisite and it changes each day, it's just impossible to tire of that view. The house is so well stocked and easy to live in. I hated to leave. The proximity to town and great hikes is so easy. It's funny, as close as the house is to Jasper, you somehow feel like you are a million miles from everything - I loved that!

Thank you so much for making this lovely home available to rent. The time we spent with our daughter, son in law and two babies was so sweet and easy, thanks to your hospitality in letting us use the high chair, Pack and Play, baby gates and toys. The childs house on the deck was a huge hit as well. :)

I put fresh sugar water in the humming bird feeder and enjoyed watching the hummers come through out the day.

We didn't have time to do any grilling - which means we will need to come back again. Lol!!

Again, thank you so much for a wonderful experience!!

It's Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the Little Cabin! It's huge and has a beautiful wrap around deck. There's nothing below you or on the entire horizon. The storms, fog, and sunrise are amazing! It's a short 12 minute drive to some incredible hikes and the river! A short 30 minute drive and you open up the entire State Park and dozens of other amazing hikes and vistas! Kitchen was well stocked with supplies, the AC worked perfect, and the on demand hot water heater allows to fill the entire Jacuzzi without issue! GPS doesn't lead you directly to it, but the directions in her instructions from Jasper are perfect. We found it during storms at midnight without issue!

Beautiful, peaceful cabin in the woods of Jasper

Great get-away cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is great. Loved all the cedar. Wish there was more wildlife near the cabin. We were spoiled by Frannie's cabin (which is no longer available for rent) where there were deer and turkeys every morning and evening.

Owner's Response: We are glad you thought the cabin was great. We do see deer at times on the west and north side, but when we we built the cabin, we opted to perch it on the mountain with views of the valley from the deck. Thanks for staying with us. Rod and Anita, Bob and Pam

Little Cabin in the Woods is located within miles of the first designated national river, the Buffalo National River. With multiple 'put-ins,' the river offers leisurely canoeing, off-river exploration of historical sites, hiking, and horse-back riding. The road 'up the mountain' (74 West) is a beautiful scenic drive. Don't miss dining at the Low Gap Cafe for unbelievable cuisine! Highway 7 South also provides a lovely scenic drive. Stop at the Arkansas Grand Canyon for a breath-taking view. While at the Arkansas Grand Canyon, enjoy lunch or dinner at Cliff House Inn.

Be sure to make a visit to the Ponca area part of your trip! Ponca is approximately 12 miles west on Highway 74. (Turn right onto 74) View elk from the comfort of your vehicle. (Elk were re-introduced to Arkansas recently and are thriving. Elk can be viewed by turning left onto Highway 43 and driving a short distance. Additionally, enjoy the historical 100-year-old Boxley Baptist Church which still holds services, the historical farmstead, and the Elk museum in Ponca. Jasper, the county seat for Newton County, has its own delights. The Ozark Cafe is a time-honored tradition that serves down-home cooking to visitors and locals. Antiquing at Emma's Museum of Junk is a treat not to miss. The Chamber of Commerce offers hand-crafted items from local craftsmen as well as information about the area. Want to float the Buffalo? Several concessionaires offer canoe rentals, drop-off and and pick-up services.

Of course, Branson and all its entertainment venues is just one hour away from the cabin.
