This Historic property started its life after the turn of the Century as a 2 room boarding house and stable around 1910. We have been told that over the last 100 years it was added on to by different owners about 4 times.
After our purchase in October 2016 we began by gutting and rebuilding from the inside out but kept floor plan, with no additions. The original floors were kept where ever possible and they were refinished by a local craftsman. We asked him to please leave all the bumps, scrapes, bruises and variety of colors intact. Just love all that history under our feet.
The home is about 1100 sq. ft. under roof. We removed the 3rd bedroom and transformed it into a master bath and extended the living room space. Yes that’s right we have 2 bathrooms!
We opened our doors May 2017, so please contact us to book your stay and enjoy all
that the Twin Lakes area can offer!
Besides the Majestic World Class Trout fishing White River...yes we love it a lot.... :) We also have
Lake Bull Shoals, Lake Norfork, the Buffalo River and the North Fork River. Our area is rich with fresh clean water. We have fast food restaurants, sit down dining, fine dining, antique stores galore, 5 grocery chains, 2 Super Walmart's, 2 movie theaters, entertainment for children and families activities, and a whole lot more.
We are located in the town of Cotter which is the North Central part of Arkansas in the Ozarks Mountains just about 15 miles south of the Missouri State line. Cotter has a rich history that I will be adding for you history buffs on our new web site for Our Cotter Cabin but unfortunately I cannot share that link with you on this site, but we are confident you will be able to find it on your own. :)
