Murfreesboro house description

Little Missouri Fly Fishing Cottage at 16 Factory Site Road is within 3 minutes of all the best accesses to the Little Missouri, the best kept trout stream secret in Arkansas. And for you diamond hunters, we are 5 minutes down the road from the Crater of Diamonds.

Our cottage sits secluded in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains. Cozy in the fall and winter months, just sit back and enjoy a fire in the Fisher Stove. During the fall the hardwoods on the property add just a bit of color to the 2 acre spread.

Yes, the Crater of Diamonds State Park is the attraction around here, and they do find REAL diamonds almost every day out there. We are 5 minutes from the park, so you can go work your luck, and come back for an afternoon nap when you are ready.

Should you be a stream trout fisherman, or lake fisherman, bring your catch back to a fully equipped kitchen, or head into Murfreesboro for one of several cuisine restaurants. For you fly fishermen and women, our little secret stream down in Southwest Arkansas is stocked from late October to late April, with fly fishing year round. A novice and experienced fly fisherman's dream not too far from home. Local guide available. You do need a license and stamp which you can get locally.

Our cottage is accessible to the great Ouachita mountains just up the road for you hikers and outdoor lovers. If you like walks in the woods and along the river, this one is for you.

Just 2 minutes from Murfreesboro,5 minutes from Crater of Diamonds State Park, 5 minutes from Lake Greeson and Narrows Dam landing, Wegner's and Coleman's Quartz Crystal mines are 40 minutes away (nothing but rave reviews from rock hounds), 4 State Parks within short distance, and 1 National forest and the Hot Springs National Park within an hour.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: Mark and Suzanne are Texans originally, but found Arkansas 30 years ago and settled here to run a business and raise a family. Both our sons and daughter in law attended Arkansas schools and colleges. We truly love being Arkansans and everytime we leave for the crowded metropolises, we feel the warmth of the area as we return.

                  Why the Owner Chose Murfreesboro:
                  We love the closeness of a truly unique small town area with plenty of things to see in nature. From Mark's passion for fly fishing for trout, sailing, farming, golf and tennis, geocaching, and the outdoors to Suzanne's love of the beauty of nature, Murfreesboro and the surrounding area have it all. And the beauty is, people have not overrun the area. It still has small town appeal with a low amount of traffic, unlike other popular places in the area like Hot Springs and Branson. We like it so much we have purchased another home here and live here in retirement.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Fly fishing on a 5 mile stretch of water, a lake and boat marina within 5 minutes of the house, the Crater of Diamonds 5 minutes away, natural beauty of the lower Ouachita mountains, the color in the spring and fall, wildlife galore, and few people.
