About Steve Alford

My name is Steve Alford. I have lived in Memphis all my life but have always had a presence in Arkansas. I spent hundreds of days on Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs. I fell in love with Northwest Arkansas and would ride my motorcycle in the area a couple of times a year. I also made a yearly cabin trip to the area in the fall. That is where I saw and fell in love with House on the Rock. I purchased it in June 2015 and will spend my spare time turning it into a showplace! I always welcome any suggestions you may have after your stay there.

Steve Alford purchased this cabin in 2015

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoy the Rock Bluff and Cave on the property. Directly across the street are the White River views and City Rock Bluff. The elevated screened patio has two doggy doors and a beautiful view of the property.

Secluded and peaceful.

We loved every relaxing moment. Loved the cabin and the screened in porch. Enjoyed watching for deer and all the birds. It’s so nice that we were allowed to bring our little dog. Hope to return this fall for another visit.

This is the second year that our group stayed at this house. The property is just beautiful. The owner continues to make improvements. The only thing I could suggest to add would be a small freezer.

The extra freezer would be very handy for the groups that fish while at this property. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this location. The owner is great to work with.

Wonderful Trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a year or so ago and had such a great time that we came back this year. The home is extremely cozy with lots of privacy and land to explore if you have dogs. We brought ours and they had a great time exploring the property. There is very little traffic, so we didn't need to worry about them running out in front of cars or trucks. We only had a couple of nights free from work this year but we hiked Blanchard Springs state park on both days and the dogs had a blast playing in North Sylamore Creek. The grill and patio was perfect for grilling steaks and lounging each evening with a great view. I'm not sure what mattress Steve uses for the master bedroom (memory foam?), but as someone who suffers from horrible insomnia, I slept the best that I've slept in almost a year! The wood burning fireplace was very romantic and luckily it was chilly enough on both evenings for us to justify making one. It was so relaxing and lulled us both to sleep on both nights to where it was everything we could do to muster up the energy to go upstairs and crawl in bed. In short, we had a wonderful time and are already planning another return trip this fall if Steve will have us! As someone who grew up hiking in this area and has visited frequently over the year, staying at various cabin/homes, give this one a shot if you are planning a trip to the area because it's hard to find better.

Our trip to the House on the Rock was great. It was better than advertised. We planned to do more away from the house but there was so much to do on the property we didn’t spend much time away. We will definitely be staying here again one day.

Great time spent away from the hustle and bustle

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the cabin. The location was excellent for the outdoor activities we had planned. The view from the back deck was superb, and we felt very comfortable with all the available amenities. Our two dogs had a great time playing outside and relaxing on the deck while we grilled. We would definitely stay again!
