Property description

Relax and soothe your soul to the sounds of the river at River song..... a beautiful retreat on the edge of the Arkansas River.

Come stay awhile in our 3000 square foot home plus 800 feet of upper and lower deck facing the Arkansas River gives everyone access to the river, mountain views and fishing. Maybe try panning for gold.
The river does run through our back yard.
Sip your coffee in the morning on the north end, cocktails on the south and bar-b-que dinner on the lower deck with your fresh catch from the river. 800 square feet of deck lets you lounge in the sun or shade or snooze in the hammock to the gentle sound of the Arkansas.
You will take in the magnificence of Mt. Princeton looking straight down the river from the cocktail deck as you plan tomorrows activities. Or watch the kayakers come by or just enjoy the peace, the quiet and the song the river sings.

Watch the stars come out at night or relax indoors with a Netflix movie, just read or listen to the stereo.
Nature comes indoors through the full length windows that face the river as you are bathed each morning in unbelievable natural light surrounded by nature.

Our favourite restaurant, the Asian Palate, is just a mile and a quarter down the road on Main street in historic down town.Try amazing coffee at BV Roastery .Great pizza at the Eddyline plus home brews & organic fresh ingredients.
The kitchen is fully equipped if you prefer to eat at home, inside or on the deck or sip a glass of wine before going out.

If you fish you’ll enjoy the close proximity to the river below, the “fish pond” just a hundred feet up the river or the hiding places along the river in front of the house.

Bring your bikes and ride the 8 scenic miles along the river going north from the house through the 4 tunnels. You can rent bikes in town if you prefer.

Fifteen minutes takes you to Mt. Princeton hot springs or Cottonwood Lake for a picnic and trout fishing.

Lots of activity to choose from; kayak, raft, climb a mountain, fish, play tennis, golf, rock climb, swim, horse back ride, visit ghost towns,or mountain bike.
Some other things that make life worth living such as romance and a river's song to lull you to sleep.
Come and stay; feed your soul, inspire your heart, enjoy our river.
