Little Cabin in the Woods is a dream come true! Nestled on a mountain side close to the Buffalo National River, our cedar log cabin invites relaxation, rejuvination, and lots of fun! Everything you need to make your get-away enjoyable is provided.

Come on in through the custom-made door that features a stained glass waterfall! The inside of the cabin will take your breath away! Drink in the cedar smell! This spacious cedar log cabin is an architectural jewel. The cozy great room features a fully-equipped kitchen, a conversation area built around a beautifully designed native field stone propane fireplace, and a roomy eating area. Completing the main floor is the Laura Ingalls Wilder bedroom with its queen-sized bed on a cedar bed frame and a large bathroom with the laundry facilities contained neatly behind hand-built folding doors.

Climb the stairs to the peaceful loft that features a king-sized bed with a private bath that includes a Jacuzzi tub for two! The view from the loft is stunning!

The cabin is more than 1600 sq. ft. with two bedrooms and two baths, a full kitchen, and great room. A third basement bedroom with a queen bed, bunk beds, and bathroom is available with owner approval depending on the number of guests. A huge wrap-around deck for enjoying nature, dining outside, napping in the sun or enjoying conversation with loved ones gives added value to your cabin experience! The cabin is fully furnished with a refrigerator, range/oven, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker, clothes washer and dryer. All utensils, dishes, glasses, towels, and bed linens are provided.

We know you'll want to spend most of your time on the deck, but just in case you are inside, we provide wireless internet and a variety of DVD movies for your use. And. . . you'll want to revisit your childhood with a rousing game of dominoes.

During your visit, please read our cabin journal and add your thoughts about the time you spend in our Little Cabin in the Woods.

PLEASE NOTE: CURRENTLY, WE DO NOT HAVE CABLE TV AT THE CABIN, BUT WIRELESS INTERNET IS AVAILABLE.

About Bob and Pam Hankins

Little Cabin in the Woods is the result of two couples dreaming of the ideal get-away. Rod and Anita, both educators, and Bob and Pam, a lawyer and an educator, are long-time friends who dreamed of owning a cabin as a home-away-from-home. Now retired, we enjoy traveling, grandchildren, the St. Louis Cardinals, corgis, and spending extended periods of time at the cabin.

Bob and Pam Hankins purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Bob and Pam Hankins chose Arkansas

Little Cabin in the Woods was not purchased---it was designed and built by the owners! With the assistance of a Mennonite father-son team, the cabin took form over two years of persistence and hard work. Our 'fingerprints' are all over the cabin. We painted and hung the cabinets, laid the hickory hardwood floor, made and hung the curtains, and decorated.

Little Cabin in the Woods is a labor of love for us. It provides a get-away and a place of solitude that is unmatched in one of the most beautiful best-kept secrets in the US----Newton County, Arkansas.

What makes this cabin unique

We created the ambiances you will enjoy! The cathedral-like windows that stream the outdoors in, the wrap-around deck, the jacuzzi tub, the handcrafted cedar bedstead, the photos, the stain-glass window in the front door are among the unique features of the cabin.

Little Cabin in the Woods is remote enough to give you the feeling of solitude yet close enough to Jasper to allow you to run into the grocery story to pick up that forgotten item.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Little Cabin in the Woods from October 16 - October 20. The cabin is beautiful and well appointed, very homey and comfortable. If you like to cook, this is the place for you! You will find all the things you need in the kitchen. The view is spectacular from the cabin deck and no neighbors are visible. The movie collection and book collection were fantastic also! It was a great place for us to relax and enjoy fall in the Ozarks.

expectations exceeded!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin manages to be both airy and very cozy. It is beautifully constructed. we spent far too short of a time here. it is located between Jasper and Ponca, so good options for hiking or dining out in both directions, which was perfect. We ate every meal at the cabin outside with a view that helped our shoulders relax. Our kids enjoyed the playhouse and our dogs looked to be in heaven sunning on the porch. Oh, and the sunrise, the sunrise through the windows was divine. Oh, and practical things: very clean, organized, easy check in and out, kitchen fully equipped down to a sharp knife, which is sometimes hard to find in rentals! We hope to go back.

Little Cabin in the Woods is located within miles of the first designated national river, the Buffalo National River. With multiple 'put-ins,' the river offers leisurely canoeing, off-river exploration of historical sites, hiking, and horse-back riding. The road 'up the mountain' (74 West) is a beautiful scenic drive. Don't miss dining at the Low Gap Cafe for unbelievable cuisine! Highway 7 South also provides a lovely scenic drive. Stop at the Arkansas Grand Canyon for a breath-taking view. While at the Arkansas Grand Canyon, enjoy lunch or dinner at Cliff House Inn.

Be sure to make a visit to the Ponca area part of your trip! Ponca is approximately 12 miles west on Highway 74. (Turn right onto 74) View elk from the comfort of your vehicle. (Elk were re-introduced to Arkansas recently and are thriving. Elk can be viewed by turning left onto Highway 43 and driving a short distance. Additionally, enjoy the historical 100-year-old Boxley Baptist Church which still holds services, the historical farmstead, and the Elk museum in Ponca. Jasper, the county seat for Newton County, has its own delights. The Ozark Cafe is a time-honored tradition that serves down-home cooking to visitors and locals. Antiquing at Emma's Museum of Junk is a treat not to miss. The Chamber of Commerce offers hand-crafted items from local craftsmen as well as information about the area. Want to float the Buffalo? Several concessionaires offer canoe rentals, drop-off and and pick-up services.

Of course, Branson and all its entertainment venues is just one hour away from the cabin.
