About Karen E Ramsey

Rick was born and raised in Northeast Arkansas with a love of the Ozark Mountains and White River fishing. Rick moved to Louisiana back in the 70's where he met Karen and raised two wonderful children. Karen was born and raised in Louisiana with a love for nature and birds. The Cartney Rd. cabin was originally purchased as a family vacation getaway which allowed both Rick and Karen to pursue both their loves. Retirement has allowed us to move to Mountain Home along the river leaving our vacation home to share with others. We really hope you enjoy the cabin as much as we have.

Karen E Ramsey purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Karen E Ramsey chose Mountain Home

The cabin is secluded with a lot of nature and a chance to get away from it all. It's close to both the White River and Norfork Lake. Mountain Home is only a 10 minute drive with all the amenities of a small town and centrally located to allow day trips to Branson, Buffalo River, Ozark Folk Center, Jasper and Blanchard Springs Caverns.

What makes this cabin unique

No houses within view. Secluded but short drive to stores and recreation.

Perfect place to get away and forget about it all

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful if you want a place where you can just get away from it all this is it the river was right down the road and just a place to sit on the rocks and unwind. We got the chance to see 2 bald eagles land in a tree right by the back porch everyone was so excited to see these beautiful birds. It's a must stay place.

All around great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Between the wildlife, the view, huge kitchen, game room and loft for the kids with tons of DVDs and board games. There is something for everyone! We had a great time! Thank you! P.S. watch for the red chested hummingbird at the feeder by the bedroom. Very entertaining!

My family of 10 absolutely loved staying here. The view was so beautiful every morning!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed watching the hummingbirds, squirrels, & birds, also. We did see a beautiful fawn sitting by the water pond alongside the driveway, which our grandkids loved! The cabin was very secluded & quiet which was exactly what we needed. The owners were great people who made sure we had everything we needed.

Quite, Peaceful, and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I brought my son and his friends for some catch-up time since they attend different colleges. While they floated the Buffalo it gave me time to enjoy the beautiful views and animals. We had a great weekend and would definitely stay here again. I was even lucky enough to see a bear on our drive home. I would like to add the beds here are very comfortable!!
