About the property

Walk right into the shoals from this great location on the Little Red River, close to everything this quaint little town of Heber Springs has to offer. If you need to unwind, relax and wet a line, this place is for you. Sit outside and enjoy the sounds of the rushing water on the large comfortable covered deck overlooking the river. My cottage is right on the shoals so walk right into the water and fly fish or bait fish for rainbow or brown trout. Look up the river for a spectacular view of sugar loaf mountain. Inside this cute cottage you will find hardwood floors in the large master bedroom,large flat screen TV, and Egyptian cotton linens. Enjoy the large tiled shower in the master bath. The kitchen has everything you need to cook up your catch or put them on the gas grill outside on the wood deck. Enjoy-I know you will!!!!

About Lea Blackwell

I am a long time resident of Heber Springs. I love this quaint little town and having access to fly fishing (the reason I moved here) on the beautiful Little Red River as well as boating and jet skiing on gorgeous Greers Ferry Lake. I am an interior designer by trade and aslo am a licensed real estate agent with Crye-Leike Brock Real Estate.

Lea Blackwell purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Lea Blackwell chose Greers Ferry Lake

I bought this house in town and had it physically moved to my property on the river in 2011. I love to restore older homes and had lots of fun working on this one.

What makes this bungalow unique

The sound of the water rushing over the shoals from my comfy covered deck and the beautiful view of the river are my cottage best features. (the inside is pretty cute too if I do say so myself!!!)

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can assure all my future guest that this problem has been taken care of. I did have a mouse this past spring and called the exterminator immediately. Unfortunately I do have a few uninvited guest, as my property is located on 56 acres of beautiful woods and pastures, but not often.

My cleaning crew apparently missed cleaning in the very back of a bottom cabinet but that has now been taken care of. I can assure you my place is not, nor has ever been infested with mice. I take great pride in providing a clean, comfortable, casual place to enjoy your visit.

I obviously was not able to do that with these guest, as they also pointed out two other things they thought I needed to correct that no other guest has ever mentioned in 3 years since I have been renting my place.

As you can read from my other reviews I have had many happy satisfied guest who continue to come back every year and think I have the beat place on the river- and I agree!!!

Please call me if you have any other question regarding this matter and thank you for your interest😃.

Awesome weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This place is really great! My husband and I stayed for the weekend for his birthday. There had been a bunch of rain and the dam was generating so the river was really high, making the trout fishing hard. So we loved having the pond on site to do some bass fishing. The fire pit was nice and stocked with wood, which we appreciated. We hope to come back here again!

A couple things to note: 1. The gas tank in the gas grill seemed to be old and the valve wouldn't turn to turn the gas on. Luckily we brought charcoal and were able to use the other grill for our dinner.

2. The master bathroom shower is really nice but doesn't have a shower head - making the water pressure not ideal.

Owner's Response: I do have a shower head in the master bath- just replaced it! The water pressure is not as good in the back bathroom as the front bath but will get you clean! Not sure why she posted that and my gas grill does work- the electric ignition is broken ( and continues to get broken repeatedly by guest) so it has to be lit manually. I also do have charcoal grill on the property for my guest to use as well.

So Much Fun and so Beautfiul

  • 5 of 5

This was our first fishing trip. My husband is disabled but was able to navigate the easy steps to the home.

Inside was so beautiful and so easy to move around in. The step in shower was a dream and so large.

The entire home is professionally decorated. Fishing was a few steps down to river. The kitchen had everything

for fabulous dinners. The back decks are huge and breathtaking views. The property clearly marked and very private. Deer roamed each morning. Loved the fire pit. Quick drive for shopping and the town of Heber Springs.

Owner very nice. No neighbors very private. Would recommend this to anyone for fishing or just relaxing.

Relaxing weekend!

  • 4 of 5

Our trip was a ladies weekend. It was just what the doctor ordered! We loved sitting on the deck listening to the river shoals sounds, enjoying the beautiful view with lots of wildlife around and building a fire to sit around in the evenings. Shopping in quaint downtown Heber was enjoyable as well. The next trip we'll make more time for that. Thanks, Lea!

Fly fishin

  • 3 of 5

Lea has a gem of a place as far as location to fly fishing. There were 4 of us at the house and plenty of room for all...we loved the fact that we didn't have to drive somewhere to fish but go straight to the river from the house...The issue with the house was signs of mice! We had to wash all our dishes ahead of time and we kept them in refrigerator so mice could not walk on them...We had our giant Yeti and was able to keep our food in there as well as the frig....Lea said she was aware of this and had it exterminated before we arrived. But housekeeping had not cleaned out all the cabinets so we were grossed out with rat poop. Fishing Was great, location was great...but I just can't give it higher than a 3 star because of the aforementioned..

Had an excellent trip on the river. We kept 40 trout over a 3 day period. We spoke to Lea about a few minor house issues that she is fixing. We loved the acreage and being out and without neighbors and walking down to the river every morning to fish.
