About Sondra Rosson
We were both raised up in Polk County and have grown up around the Mountain Fork River. We enjoy all the benefits the river and outdoors has to offer here and wouldn't live anywhere else. We can't wait to share this property and all that it offers with our guests.

Mother’s Day weekend
We had a great social distancing weekend. No other homes within sight or sound. Very clean home, well maintained park like lawn and river front. Enjoyed the hot tub as well. Easy drive to a couple of state parks for hiking, though we mostly just laid around with our books and wine glasses!
Thanks for the great review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay on our property.
Found this lovely home after we had to cancel a trip to St. Louis. The home is lovely, very clean, secluded and right on the river. We are definitely looking into another stay when the river is a bit lower so we can “play.” We did have cell and LTE service (Verizon) on the porch. Beds were comfy and kitchen had everything we needed. I can’t say enough good things about this home.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to having you back.
Peaceful setting to unwind!
Beautiful setting nestled in the trees next to the river. The house was as clean as my own and I’m OCD when it comes to a clean house!!!! Everything you could have thought of was covered. We loved the sound of the river, the squirrels running about and the birds chirping. You can’t ask for a more peaceful and relaxing place to unwind! We will return when the weather is warmer and take advantage of the canoes!!!
so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to having you back.
Love this house!
Just tell everyone not to use GPS. Sent us to a scary situation. Cell service not great, but getting a hold of the property manager was a great relief and we then got to the right place. Need good driving directions to the house, not just physical property address when confirming your reservation
ATV's and Motorcycles welcome. From Mena, head south on Highway 71 to Hatfield. Turn west on Highway 246 and go approximately 5 miles and turn right onto Polk Road 38. Go approximately 1/4 of a mile to first driveway on the right. Gated entry. We also have 2 other property's listed if this property is not available- Rock Creek Cottage and Rock Creek Cabin.
