About Vernon Bogart

Vernon Bogart. I am a transplant from Kansas to Arkansas in 1996 and love it! My sons and I finished the house in 2018 and we take care of the cabin and the property.

Vernon Bogart purchased this cabin in 2018

Why Vernon Bogart chose Magazine

This house is located in the middle of our 145 acre farm. A great place for peace and quiet, or take a short drive to the top of Mount Magazine, or visit one of the many lakes that are close by.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin offers seclusion without being too far off the beaten path. It is large enough for families to come together, stay in one place and make new memories and traditions. Free fishing (catch and release) in one of our ponds. basketball, firepit (when there is no burn-ban on), horseshoes; 145 acres to hike and explore. Wildlife is everywhere around the cabin with spectacular views of the mountain ranges.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came here to get away for the weekend and this was a great place to do it! We really enjoyed the well-prepared kitchen, excellent organization and top-notch cleanliness. What we most appreciated over other VRBO cabins we've stayed in was Robin's wonderful professionalism, cheerful manner and promptness. We will be back!

Pleasant Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are seven friends who enjoy seeing more of Arkansas in a setting where we have comfortable beds and a fully furnished kitchen. Cherokee Cabin met the requirements beautifully. We enjoyed the frolicking calves, the catfish and bream in the ponds, and our visit to Mount Magazine where most of us saw the Lodge for the first time. All made for a delightful weekend.

Great, well equipped place for our family Thanksgiving. Kitchen pans could be updated. Plenty of beds for all 10 of us.

Peaceful, spacious, clean cabin with wonderful view. Great value!

  • 4 of 5

Four couples from Missouri, Texas, Illinois and Colorado stayed at Cherokee Cabin. College friends met for the weekend, to enjoy hiking Mount Magazine, sample the local wines and each other's company.

We thoroughly enjoyed the facilities, especially the view and space (saw some awesome sunrises). For eight people, we had lots of space; however, sixteen adults might be a little crowded (beds are full and queen size - not king - and a little bouncy. But there are eight beds; none are pullouts!). But the fact that it could accommodate as many as 16 is excellent.

But I digress. We loved the quiet; the view; the space (repeating myself); the large frig and freezer; the cleanliness; the access to both Mount Magazine (45 minutes) and the wineries around Altus (50 minutes); the fire pit; the deck; the serenity; and the price. Eight of us stayed here for about half the cost of staying at the Lodge on Mount Magazine. Great value!

Vernon was very responsive too. We had a very minor issue crop up and he and his son corrected it within a few hours.

One disappointment: No internet. But I understand how hard it is to get reliable internet in the country. And this cabin is in the country. And we survived anyway... :)

I highly recommend Cherokee Cabin, except for those that aren't just a bit flexible. After all, it is a rental and gets lots of use and abuse. Would love to come back every weekend.

Owner's Response: We're glad you and your friends liked your stay at Cherokee Cabin, David and truly appreciate your input and good review. We will look into how to get internet at the cabin ~ unfortunately, it's difficult to find a provider because it's in a secluded area even though just 10 minutes from town. G;lad you had fund and we invite you and your friends to come back and stay any time!

Needs updating

  • 3 of 5

My family and I rented the house the last weekend in August. We had a wonderful family time but it could have been made better. The beds, linens, and pillows are very poor. The pillows are flat so bring your own. Everyone complained of not sleeping well or having a back ache. New beds would improve the house drastically. There is a malnourished cat that hangs out at the house. I have a severe problem with cats but was told it didn't belong to them and when people stay they feed it. Consequently I had to stay inside the house all weekend instead of enjoying the beautiful scenery and weather out on the deck. The cat needs to be taken to a shelter as it was very skinny. There are lots of beds and a nice refrigerator. The house probably needs more places to sit downstairs. The house was very clean but mainly needs some updates. It is for sale so maybe they don't want to invest in updates. However, even with these negatives we had a good time. It is definitely secluded.

Stunning, beautiful cabin, amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous time. The cabin is gorgeous, the views spectacular, great location for everything we wanted to see in the Mt Magazine/Paris area. Very relaxing! Huge refrigerator and freezer, well appointed kitchen with lots of dishes, pots and pans, everything you need if you stay in and cook. Breakfast is our big meal of the day so this worked really well for us. Would be a great place to have a family reunion, milestone birthdays, etc.
