- Note - country amenities not listed for our lodge: It 's VERY RARE to find a HUGE log home to rent for a vacation that sleeps your whole family in their own bed and then some, all for a little more than you would expect to pay for a hotel or single family cabin. Please be prepared to relax, put on your shorts or blue jeans, and enjoy the country! This is a rustic cabin, built 35 years ago in the woods. Bugs or spiders may be present, especially on the two enormous porches. Let your children take a science fieldtrip and/or a wildlife tour on our property and again down at the river. This isn't the city, and that's the point. :)...moreless

This enormous cabin is five miles from the Cossatot River and Cossatot River State Park and 15 miles from Gillham Lake. The Cossatot River offers the only Class 5 rapids for kayakers in the southern middle of the United States. Cossatot River State Park offers camping, fishing, swimming, and hiking. The Army Corps of Engineers put a dam on the Cossatot River and the lake that was formed is Gillham Lake which is near Gillham, Arkansas which is south of Wickes 12 miles. This lake area offers fishing, skiing, camping, and RV sites. Although hunting is a big thing in this area, it is mostly done on Weyerhaeuser land which is leased. Hunting is available on Ouachita National Forest land and information can be obtained from forestry offices in Mena. Horseback riding is available from local folk who live on land that joins the river. ATV's are allowed on state park roads and information is available from park headquarters on Highway 278 about five miles from Cossatot Lynch House. As the crow flies, the cabin is about 10 miles from Oklahoma. However, because of Beaver's Bend State Park and lake, Ouachita National Forest land and Weyerhaeuser land, a trip to Oklahoma for shopping and events ranges from 17 miles to around 50 miles. There are events of all kinds in this area beginning in May through Labor Day for all ages, capabilities and preferences. County fairs and rodeos range from August to early September.
Year Purchased: 1980
About the owner: This guest cabin was built for our family in 1980, we occupied it before building the main family lodge. It was built by Bill Hedge and his son Bob, two native craftsmen.
Why the Owner Chose Wickes, AR, USA:
The owner was raised on these properties, in the small house to the east of the vacation cabin. Her personal home is on the lower adjoining property and was built in 1980-81. She moved out of the cabin and into the lodge during March of 1982.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
This is solid log construction! The logs were purchased from Arkansas Log Houses in Mena.
