Sleeps 4. 1 Bedroom. 1 Bathroom.
Nestled in the Ozarks (near West Fork), this unique, 'modern' cabin is only 18 miles south/or 20 minutes from Fayetteville's city limits and 4 miles from Devil's Den State Park (terrific hiking trails, swimming, etc). This is an ideal place not only to enjoy the fun of Fayetteville (Razorback games, Dickson Street, wonderful restaurants and festivals) but also to visit sites in surrounding areas, such as the Victorian village of Eureka Springs, Lake Fort Smith Park for boating and kayaking, Crystal Bridges Museum, etc. Razorback fans are only a 20 minute drive from the stadium, plus other Northwest Arkansas festivals throughout the year are close by, such as Bikes Blues and Barbeque, NWA Craft Fair, and the Fayetteville Roots Festival. Not only can you enjoy city life but also enjoy the solitude and beauty of a relaxing getaway with terrific views and fresh air! The best of both worlds are available here. As one guest stated, 'Wow! Living here is like always being on vacation.'
This cozy cabin contains numerous amenities --- custom kitchen with dishwasher, stove, microwave, refrigerator, dinnerware, stemware, basic utensils (plus additional ones---bowls, cookie sheet, cutting board, kitchen towels, spatulas, coffee pot/with coffee provided, crock pot, blender, mixer, wine opener, and many other full kitchen essentials etc.) An antique pub table, which extends, and chairs add a nostalgic touch and the table is large enough for comfortable seating.
A large living area, which comfortably sleeps 4, contains the following: a queen-size bed, 2 nightstands, a leather queen-size sofa/ hide-a-bed, lamps, and a recliner. We also have a folding single bed tucked away, if desired. Other amenities provided are as follows:
a/c, heating, a flat-screen TV with cable, a DVD player, and WiFi, an iron and ironing board. Numerous brochures and information about local sites and events of interest are tucked in a basket on the kitchen counter. Otherwise, you'd never realize all the wonderful things offered in the area!
The updated bathroom has a custom granite sink with full tub/shower and numerous essentials: towels, toilet paper, shampoo, body wash/soap, hair dryer, clothes hamper, closet, etc.).
A washer and dryer are also available on the premises.
The grounds surrounding the cabin are as beautiful and user-friendly as the cabin interior. The cabin also affords both front and back porches with chairs, etc. so our guests can relax and enjoy the wonderful views. In the back yard, a table, chairs, glider seat, barbeque pit and fire pit are at your disposal. (Firewood is provided by us.) ** Guests will need to provide all other items, such as charcoal, lighter fluid, etc.
Also, both an open and covered parking space/s are available for vehicles or motorcycles.
Guest safety is important to us; therefore, the cabin contains a smoke detector, carbon monoxide detector, fire extinguisher, First Aid Kit, and Safety Card with emergency information.
Since we are kid-friendly, we've included some card games, chess, and others activities for your pleasure.
(A minimum stay of 2 nights is required in order to rent.)
(**If you wish to book for 7 nights, then a reduced fee is charged for 7 nights of $870, which is a night for free. If additional nights are desired, please contact the owners, Anne and Bill.)
The cabin is on property of over 100 acres which is also where we have our residence. But rest assured that our home is located at a distance far enough from the cabin to ensure complete privacy for our guests.
(Minimal contact with host unless requested.)
We're a fun, retired couple and available for suggestions/recommendations about the Northwest Arkansas area as needed but realize that most people want privacy in such a serene, beautiful setting.

About Anne and Bill Ratcliff
Bill and Anne are retired professionals who are originally from Louisiana. In fact we were childhood sweethearts who reconnected about 13 years ago and have lived in Northwest Arkansas ever since. We decided to trade in the hurried city life for a saner, more relaxed life-style and actually 'live our dream.' We've never looked back since making the move and have never regretted that decision.
Anne and Bill Ratcliff purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why Anne and Bill Ratcliff chose Cove Creek
This property is beautiful with breath-taking views which change with the four seasons. There's always something new to see and experience and ''getting back to nature' was one of our main goals. Both of us worked in high-pressure, stressful jobs and needed to lower our blood pressure in a healthy manner. Being around the numerous animals - birds, deer, butterflies, etc.- has been delightful; planting our own organic garden has also been one of our goals and we're making headway in that area. This property 'speaks to our souls' and has been one of the most rewarding choices we have made. (In some ways, kind of like the older tv show 'Green Acres')
What makes this Cabin unique

Cozy Cabin with Wonderful Views
My husband and I wanted to get away for some relaxation and this cabin was the perfect retreat. Anne and Bill are incredibly helpful and hospitable. Their property is beautifully maintained and terrific for our two dogs to run about. Devil's Den Park is less than fifteen minutes away with scenic hiking trails. We so enjoyed our time there and look forward to returning.
Wonderful cabin and beautiful land to be explore! Easy to get to Devil's Den. The kitchen is stocked with anything you might need to cook meals. Very clean and bright!
Fantastic 4 night stay at the cabin. Anne and Bill could not be better hosts and we enjoyed every minute. Great hiking nearby and still close enough to Fayetteville. Highly recommend!
Anne and Bill were very gracious and down to earth hosts! This cabin is on beautiful property, which Bill so kindly showed us around. The cabin itself has all the amenities you would need and it was very clean. Despite the weather being about 20 degrees or lower, the cabin is super cozy. So cozy that we never actually left the cabin! We would recommend this to anyone. I'm sure the fall foliage is just terrific in this area and would love to stay at this cabin again!
Wonderful cabin with beautiful views!
The cabin is small but perfect! It has a fully stocked kitchen and plenty of towels & linens. We were able to cook meals and grill. We loved taking walks along the beautiful property. Close to Devil's Den as well as Fayetteville. What a great and relaxing getaway for us! Bill and Anne are helpful and wonderful hosts. We hope to return!
Beautiful place with relaxing surroundings. We loved it!!
This was such a charming cabin. Very well kept and the property as well. Hope to return again when time allows
