About Owner/Manager

I grew up in a small farming town of Holstein, Ia. After graduation and Beauty college, I re-located to city life in Des Moines, Ia. I met my husband through a co-worker whose husband also worked at the Firestone Tire plant where my husband was employed for 32 years.My husband served 4 yrs in the Navy prior to his working at the tire plant.

We married in 1988 and have two daughters.

When my sister and her fiancee bought property on a mountaintop in Mountain View, AR we visited the area and decided to purchase property here as well. We fell in love with the beauty of the location and were fortunate to find property with gorgeous, mountaintop views! We moved here in 2004.Our daughters were just going into high school. As a result, it turned out to be a great transition for our family.

We started our Cottage rental in the fall of 2012. My husband decided to make use of the goose neck trailer we had and transformed it into the Tiny house on the mountaintop! My husband is the master of carpentry skills and landscaping. All the hard work that went into creating the place we call "Home " is credited to my husband's vision and talent.

Why Owner/Manager chose Mountain View

With the panoramic, gorgeous mountaintop views, we knew this had to be the place to start a new life with our family.

What makes this cottage unique

We have gorgeous, mountaintop views and solitude to enjoy! We enjoy the wildlife and the pleasure of Star gazing that you just don't have in the cities.

We've provided a setting that welcomes families and children to experience a peaceful setting. There are covered areas to enjoy the outdoors and yet, not have to be in the elements during inclement weather.

In 2015 both our daughters chose to come home to have their outdoor weddings here! They were both beautiful settings and we were thrilled to have them performed here on our property.

We are a small business, but, we sincerely enjoy our guests and treat everyone as family. I provide guests with some kind of baked goods to welcome them to our 'Home '!

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

The property is well maintained. Paul was pleasant and helpful. My husband uses a scooter. The entrances and doorways accommodated the scooter. However, the scooter was not able to maneuver in the gravel parking area.

Lovely cottage with a gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose to spend our 40th wedding anniversary at Cathy's Country Cottage. We were met by Cathy and her husband Paul. The decor was nice and Paul's handiwork as well as Cathy's desire to please was evident. We had a lovely time and if we return to Mountain View, AR, we will chose Cathy's Cottage.

Great cottage in Mountain View

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Cathy and Paul's cottage. The place is great for kids, the outdoor space is perfect and lots of room inside too. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed for a fun weekend. Very close to Blanchard Springs Caverns, and the view is great too. We loved it!

Owner's Response: The Webb family were delightful. They were very respectful of our rental home and we welcome them back any time! I would recommend them to any host as a future guest.

Wondeful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Cathy and Paul's lovely cottage for a long weekend getaway with our kids. It was a perfect space for a family to relax and enjoy some quality time! The cottage is equipped with anything you could possibly need, and it's setup is just wonderful for a family with young kids (although it would be equally nice for any demographic!). Our girls loved the swing set and we enjoyed nice meals on the covered patio. The cottage was spotless and meticulously maintained. You can tell that Cathy and Paul really care about their property! Paul was also kind enough to show us the amazing tiny house that he built - my husband and I would love to experience a stay there sometime too! We have found a home away from home in this property and will certainly be back! Thanks again!!!
