About The Owner

I am married with 3 boys. The Little Red River and Greers Ferry lake provide great entertainment and is a great get away for the entire family. I grew up just 30 minutes away and enjoyed the activities the river and lake had to offer when I was a kid and want my boys to have the same experience.

Why The Owner chose Heber Springs

The Property provides the best of what the river and lake both have to offer. We chose this area because it was located directly on a great part of the river and just minutes away from the lake. This location is also minutes from downtown Heber which includes great shopping and the movie theatre.

What makes this cabin unique

You can boat all day on the lake and return to the cool air as it flows off the Little Red River while grilling out and relaxing. You can also spend all day fishing or just walk down to the dock for quick convenient fishing experience. What a prime area for a relaxing getaway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderfully peaceful getaway for our group of nine. Location was awesome. The men trout fished early in the morning while everyone else slept in. We played on the lake that afternoon and shopping was right around the corner as well. We will come back soon. Highly recommend this great vacation spot.

Beautiful spacious home

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in the woolly bugger for a family vacation with 5 adults and 2 children. The home worked well for all of us. Well equipped and spacious layout. Owners are easy to work with and responsive to questions. Would stay here again.

Christmas at the Wooly Booger!

  • 5 of 5

We just came home from a weekend at this beautiful property. We thoroughly enjoyed the Little Red river from the back porch and the dock. The kitchen was well-appointed, although lacking in a few staples (bring your aluminum foil and Pam)! We will certainlly be back!

Our family is staying at the cabin now. We love it! I must disagree with previous reviews on one point. I find the kitchen to be wonderfully appointed with everything I need to prepare meals for 10 hungry mouths! I am an amateur chef and am picky about bake ware and having the proper tools to prepare foods. It would be nice to have my expensive cutlery and stone baking dishes, but this a VACATION RENTAL! Mrs. Pontius has been absolutely lovely to us! The home is beautiful and comfortable with plenty of room for all 6 of us who stayed the nights and the others who visited during the day. We very much enjoyed catching trout for our supper right off the dock! I would have liked to have a gas grill, but charcoal cooks too! We will stay here again!!!

Nice place, Needs a better dock.

  • 3 of 5

Spent last 4 days at this really nice home with my family. First time to area and couldn't wait to take my kids fishing, and I chose this place for privacy and for the dock to fish off of, unfortunately the dock was in bad shape. The dock had recently been damaged by another dock running into it and was not covered so we baked in the sun, nor was there anyway to access a boat from it. In it's current state it's not safe to use. Like a previous review stated the kitchen is not adequately stocked so we came with baking sheets/coffee mugs, etc. but needed a better frying pans. House great overall with 3 rooms with queen beds, and 1 with 2 sets of bunks, the beds could be better and a king in the master would be appreciated. Home stayed cool despite the terrible heat outside, liked the foosball and ping pong but in the garage it was to hot to really enjoy fully. Charcoal grill was nice but not very convenient. Outdoor furniture was inadequate and lack in quantity. Would likely return in cooler weather and once the dock is replaced as I really liked the house and the privacy. For $350/night expected more.
