Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Blue Heron River Retreat is a custom built log cabin located right on the banks of the Little Red River near Heber Springs, Arkansas. Rustic luxury is what you will experience when you stay with us. Guests wanting to fish, bird watch, paddle the river, or just relax will find this to be the perfect place on the river. We are located approximately 5 miles from the town of Heber Springs.

The cabin is completely furnished, and has a fully equipped kitchen. There are 3 bedrooms and two full baths to provide a comfortable stay for up to 6 guests. A large screened-in deck overlooks the cool waters of the Little Red River. Gas log fireplaces on the screened porch and in the living room add cheer & warmth to these gathering areas during the cooler months.

Outside the cabin there is a large fire pit on the bank overlooking the river, and also a private boat dock. The lighted dock has a slip for one fishing boat, and a sink with running water for cleaning the day’s catch. The dock is the perfect place to enjoy a summer sundowner while experiencing the river’s natural air conditioning. The river banks behind the cabin are gentle and sloping; providing easy drag-in access for launching kayaks, canoes, or small fishing boats.

The ground level section of the cabin has a ping pong table. A horse shoe set is also available with plenty of room to play in the side yard. There is a covered area underneath the screened deck with two charcoal grills available for our guests to use.

Why Jan Pilkington chose Heber Springs

My wife and I rented the cabin for 1-1/2 years from the original owners. We loved the cabin and the location so much that we offered to buy it. Fortunately the owners were willing to sell it to us. We love the peace and tranquility this location has to offer. Trout fishing in the river, and wildlife & bird watching are additional bonuses.

What makes this cabin unique

Trout fisherman will have private access from the river bank, and also the convenience of a private, lighted boat dock on the property. Fishing in nearby Greers Ferry Lake is considered excellent for walleye, hybrid bass, catfish, largemouth bass, crappie, and bluegill. Dam site boat launch on the lake is located 5 miles from the cabin.

Bird watching at the cabin and the surrounding area is excellent. A large group of trumpeter swans makes nearby Magness Lake their wintering ground from November to February.

Kayakers and canoeist will find they have easy, drag-in access on the gently sloping banks behind the cabin.

Beautiful cabin on a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is the nicest cabin we have ever stayed in. Beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds. The screened in porches are heavenly. Five minute drive to several good restaurants. Teens enjoyed the ping pong and pool tables and had a bonfire in the fire pit. Kitchen has everything you need to cook if desired. Nice grill set up available also.

House was amazing. Caught tons of trout!

  • 5 of 5

This one if not the best VRBO properties that we have visited. Everything was perfect! The house has unique decor, and Jan was awesome! We spent a lot of time at the dock in the river a flock of geese visited and we caught trout every day. Can’t wait to go back!

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here multiple times and have enjoyed it everytime. The house is beautiful and well stocked. Screened in porch lets you relax in comfort with a beautiful view of the river. Location is very private and quiet. The private dock is excellent - we caught our limit of trout directly from the dock. The dock has a cleaning station and comfortable chairs. Don't know what more one could ask for in this location.

Upon arriving on Saturday, the air conditioner was not working. Contacted the management company and within 30 minutes they had a repair man on site. Truly amazing customer service.

Wished we could have stayed longer and looking forward to our next trip back here.

Wonderful property. Location and quality wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

The only negative I had while staying here was not enough time. The property was beautiful, cabin was perfect with a minor exception of no internet. Location on river was great and worth the price.
