A beautiful little escape

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Buena Vista Cottage! Wanted a secluded place to stay for a weekend fishing trip with our dogs. This place was perfect! The house is cozy and has stocked kitchen for cooking. Our dogs LOVED the swimming hole and the hiking trails behind the house were great. Bridget was a wonderful host. Will be sure to stay again on our next fishing excursion. Thanks again Bridgett!

Loved it!! Got to see and hear things we don't normally see and hear!! Brought me back into the 60's and I surely felt my momma's presence around me! Hope to go again when all the flowers are pretty and in bloom all around ! Did get to see some of the leaf color change, at least what was left to them....we were a lil late in the season to see it in full techno color!!! Thanks for the hospitality and WE'LL B BACK!!!

House tucked away in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Definitely a great place to get away from the city and unplug. Everything you need is a 15min drive. The Caddo river on the property was great. Really enjoyed our week stay. Will be recommending this place to our friends.

Beautiful, secluded spot

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for me and my daughter. We walked the nice trails and relaxed in the swimming hole, all on the property. We visited Hot Springs and Twin Creek crystal mine, both about 30 min from the house, while we were there. Would love to come back for a visit. Great host too!

Large, Roomy, Private, Pet Friendly Cabin with short drive to fantastic attractions!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four really enjoyed our stay at this Caddo Gap cabin for three nights in August 2017. We loved staying at this pet-friendly cabin because of the beautiful mountain surrounding and because it was a short drive to the Wegner Quartz Crystal Mine, Crater of Diamonds and Lake Ouachita.

If you stay in this area, I recommend going to the Wegner Quartz Crystal Mine because this place is loaded with quartz & you can take home all that you can carry. It was fun for our whole family and the 2 hour adventure seemed to fly by because quartz is everywhere, waiting to be picked up. Wegner Quartz Crystal Mine had beautiful finds everywhere, where as at Crater of Diamonds you'll find mostly tiny pebbles of jasper and rocks. I think Crater is a place to visit one time but Wegner Quartz Mine is a place you'll never tire of because of all the incredible finds. We drove to Caddo Gap from Indiana & I would drive her again just to visit Wegner Quartz Crystal Mine; It was truly a spectacular time! I would also recommend driving to Lake Ouachita, after visiting the Wegner Quartz Crystal Mine, to rinse off the red clay in the lake & to enjoy the beautiful, clean surroundings.

The owners of the Caddo Gap cabin are very friendly & it was a pleasure to meet both of them. When we first arrived in town, Bridget met us by her barn and we followed behind her as she lead the way to our cabin. We didn't have cell phone service or WIFI at or around the cabin area, so this was nice of her to do because we may not have found the cabin without her help.

We met the other owner as we were leaving the cabin & he shared some stories with us about animals he had seen on the Ranch & showed us pictures of a Copperhead snake that he found in his driveway recently.

We loved seeing the cows each day at the cabin and we also saw armadillos, deer and rabbits.

It was wonderful that the cabin had a washer / dryer, oven, stove, full-size fridge, 2 bathrooms (both with showers and bath tubs), & a separate indoor, back porch area to keep the dogs while we were on our adventures.

Bridget was thoughtful & let us know that it was tick season & to be prepared. I bought a special pair of tick tweezers with us & they came in handy because I did have to use them twice to remove ticks from our dogs. We also brought lots of insect repellent sprays to use on our walks around the lovely property.

Bridget, thanks for letting us stay at your cabin; We have made many fond family memories!
