Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

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, Nashville, or Glenwood 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.

About Mark

Mark and Suzanne are Texans originally, but found Arkansas 33 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.

Mark purchased this house in 1997

Why Mark 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 and flying, farming, golf and tennis, geocaching, and the outdoors to Suzanne's love of the beauty of nature, and grandkids, 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.

What makes this house unique

Fly fishing on a 5 mile stretch of water (best season is February to June 1), 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.

A Real Arkansas Gem

  • 5 of 5

The Little Mo Fly Fishing Cottage was excellent. Great setting, nice and quiet. Close to the diamonds, quartz crystals and fishing. The folks in and around Murfreesboro are the nicest people we had met in a long time, it was refreshing. Mark is extemly knowledgeable about the area and gave us great info on where to go for activities and dining. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. Thanks again Mark!!

Comfortable cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

Though we didn't find any diamonds at the state park, this little cottage was a gem! It was comfortable and quiet--the perfect place to relax after a long drive to Arkansas, and then after three long days of digging in the dirt. The house was clean and roomy, and it was fun to gather eggs and feed the goats just a few steps away. Mark was so kind and hospitable, and his recommendations helped us maximize the time we had during our short stay. The area is beautiful, with easy access to the Little Missouri River (we didn't fish, but we explored the banks). Town is a five-minute drive away if you need anything on the fly, but the cottage keeps you close to nature. If you're planning on being in the Murfreesboro area, I highly recommend staying here!

Cozy Cabin is an Awesome Rock Hounder Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I spent a Wednesday through Sunday in this 3 bedroom 1 bathroom house just 2 miles from downtown Murfreesboro, Ar. Our goal for this vacation was to dig in the dirt at Crater of Diamonds state park and to pound rocks at Wegner's and Twin Creeks Crystal Mines. Alas, no diamonds for us, but we brought home too many crystals to count! Following the digs, our cabin afforded us the perfect place to relax, cook out, watch t.v. and even have a small bonfire out front. We were treated with fresh eggs from the free range chickens and were able to pet the goats Diamond and Sundae! We would most certainly stay here again as our host Mark made us feel welcome and right at home.
