Why Bryan Whisenhunt 870-867-7457 chose Mount Ida

History of Christina's Little Cabin-----

When Lake Ouachita was built, this rustic 1800's cabin was moved from across the lake on mountain farmland at the base of Twin Creek. It rested in an old settlement called "Elenora". Later known as "Silver" where silver mining took place. Presently called Twin Creek. -----

Our family recently acquired this cabin as a realtor's first purchase. A 20-year poultry and cattle farmer turned realtor. This property was a God send that eventually included this cabin. This cabin is named after our daughter. Thus we have: Christina's Little Cabin.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our vacation. The location is great for hiking, boating, four-wheeling. It's nestled in the woods on a very quiet road. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the large patio out back and listening to the sounds of nature. We had three adults in our group and the size of the cabin was just right. It was as clean as could be. The best part: there is no long list of "chores" you have to do before you leave. Just lock up and go.

Great place in the woods; close to lots

  • 4 of 5

Owner is very attentive and the cabin was spotlessly clean. The pictures represent the cabin well. It is a daring little place, The huge deck and front porch was wonderful if the mosquitoes aren't bad. Adding a couple of lounge chairs would be nice.

The kitchen was well equipped. The full bath is very small but well done. We found it a challenge because there is no place to set any personal cosmetics. The upstairs half bath has vanity space but no usable mirror for shaving or doing hair and make-up. A full supply of towels were provided. The bedrooms do not have dressers or mirrors so if you are travel with several people it would be a challenge for everyone to get cleaned up using only the one mirror in the main bath.

The air conditioning is wall mounted and had no problem keeping the cabin cool and comfortable. The units do however have a pretty loud hum like the sound of a phone off the hook. We were out and about a lot so it wasn't much of an issue, but if you were planning to stay inside for several days you should be aware of this. The TV channel selection is very limited if that is important to you.

We really liked to location as we wanted to do hiking. We suggest the Womble trail leaving from the trail head off RT 27 N across from the Fishing Village sign as a nice day hike.

We would stay here again of coming back to the area.
