My husband and I had a wonderful time. We stayed in the FireFly treehouse, which was very adorabely decorated. I believe we covered all 120 acres on the golf cart and did some fishing in the very clear 11 point River. The owners Melanie and Byron went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed to...

It's a nice, sleepy get-away. It's also far from any cell phone coverage. The web site description tells us that each cabin has wi-fi and a phone. In fact, the cabin descriptions inside that tell you about calling 911 in case of an emergency include details for how to tell the responders to get to you-- except there is no...

This is really a hidden gem. Each couple gets their own tiny house which is uniquely decorated and well provisioned. Each tiny house comes with a golf cart that can be used to explore the trails or to drive to the river where you can swim or use one of the kayaks provided for further exploration. The nearby town of...

I stayed in the Firefly cabin which offers a treehouse bedroom. Yes, you get to sleep in the trees. And lest you think it's some primitive treehouse from your childhood let me assure you it is FAR from that. The owners have thought of every possible comfort to provide without compromising the beauty of the area or impeding the enjoyment...

My husband and I went with another couple to the Shady River property. My husband and I stayed in Firefly (the treehouse) and our friends stayed in Wit's End. It was such an excellent and relaxing weekend. We kayak a lot and were looking for a resort in northern Arkansas to kayak and that is how we found this place....

We enjoyed Memorial Day weekend at Shady River in Canebrake Cabin. My husband and I and our adult son were completely comfortable in the cabin. We also brought our dog Buddy who also enjoyed all the natural surroundings. I would recommend anyone wanting a place to get away from civilization to consider Shady River because they won't be disappointed.

My husband and I stayed in Canebreak Cottage. such a cute cottage perfect for two people who want to get away from it all. Our first evening driving on the property there were 10 white tail deer skipping around and grazing in the meadow just below the cottages! Our second night it rained in the late evening and we were...

What a cute cottage! We stayed at the Wit's End Cottage. My kids had a blast. Would be a great place to go with another family. They currently have 2 cabins but are building a tree house cabin that is amazing! Loved the swimming hole, sat in the river on lawn chair reading while the kids fished, kayaked and swam....

We stayed in Wits' End Cabin. It was heaven! Double bed plus two singles in the loft and a pull out sofa. Blue wash on the walls, a rope swing in front, a dreamy tub on the back porch. You get the use of a golf cart during your stay. We used it to trek down to the river and...

Our family of four (two adults, two kids under 10) stayed in the "Wit's End" cabin over the fourth of July weekend and had the most fun. The kids loved sleeping in the loft and there was so much for all of us to do! We swung on a swing, played horseshoes, took the golfcart through all the trails, went...

“The Firefly is perfect for a couple. The other two cabins sleep more people and are designed for families as well. But all three are private and offer the same beauty and tranquility.”
