My husband and I were truly blessed when we discovered the River Hideaway. We spent 2 months living here, and it was one of the most relaxing, healing places I have ever been. The cabin we stayed in was very clean, (the Blue Heron), and just being able to watch the sun rise & the blanket of stars each night while sitting on the front porch made us grateful to be alive, and to remember what life was about. Helen, the owner, & Galen (maintenance man) made us feel so welcome and took care of everything we needed, though we didn't need much, as they had supplied everything before we arrived. Helen "rescues" dogs, and though they may bark when you drive up, they are only welcoming their "guest" in the only way they know how.
We will be back for a vacation one day, and look forward to seeing "the gang" at Hideaway! Thank you, Helen...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- River Hideaway consists of 3 beautifully unique riverfront cabins, in Heber Springs, Arkansas on the Little Red River. The cabins are named 'Magic Mist Steampunk Cabin' , 'Over the Rainbow Cabin', and 'Hollywood Hills Cabin'. Each one complete with its own personality that have become individual evolving art projects for the owners. They are always adding to and changing the interior landscape with interesting and unusual antiques, furniture, and the purely unexpected.. Among the surrounding exterior landscape of flowers and fruit trees there are unexpected surprises, such as the Golden bike on the riverbank in front of the Over the Rainbow cabin. These are not typical river cabins! River Hideaway has been under new ownership since September 2015. There have been many changes, including adding the newest, most spacious (3 acre), Hollywood Hills Cabin in October 2016. The interiors of all the cabins have been continuously updated including all new linens, quilts, and towels throughout. The cabins have been renovated with creativity at the forefront. Each cabin has become its own unique evolving work of art for guests to enjoy the river with a new perspective. The goal of River Hideaway is to provide a comfortable and interesting space to create lifelong memories with loved ones on the magical banks of the tranquil Little Red River. This is done with comfortable accommodations and nicely appointed amenities, as well as beautiful , unexpected decor. All of the properties have access to private fishing docks just steps from the cabins, and each have a collection of games and art supplies to enjoy time together, as well as promoting individual inspirations. The cabins feel like a world away, when enveloped by the sounds and beauty of the natural setting with the river is flowing by. The mature trees scattered along the river creates a canopy in Spring and Summer- full of life and river creatures. There are several outdoor seating areas that are inviting for nature watching, or just catching up with friends or loved ones. Nothing compares to waking up to the sounds of nature and the river flowing by, or the stars and moon reflecting on the water after sunset. All of the beauty of the natural world right at the doorstep, day and night. ... more less
