About the property

5 BR, 4 BA with large patio, fire pit, and private dock on the Little Red River

Nestled on the banks of the Little Red River in the foothills of the beautiful Ozark Mountains sits JJ's Riverhouse. The ‘Little Red’ is one of the best tail-water trout fisheries in North America and is home to the 40+ pound world record brown trout, caught in 1992. This home is perfectly situated for your relaxing vacation, located between Cow Shoals public access and Jon’s Pocket, a local favorite. JJ's Riverhouse provides easy access to Heber Springs and Greers Ferry Lake, just seven miles away.

With 300 feet of riverfront and a private dock with boat slip, access to the river is just a short walk out the back door. A large patio provides river views where you can see trout feeding and also observe local wildlife such as deer, turkey, fox, heron, eagles, ducks, geese, and osprey. Fish from the dock, the bank, or just wade in when the water’s down.

JJ’s Riverhouse is a 2550 sq. ft., five bedroom, four bath home that comfortably sleeps 12. It is a fully equipped and furnished home including Wi-Fi, high-speed Internet, and cable TV with landscaped gardens and a large front and side yard perfect for outdoor activities.

Local Highlights include:

The Little Red River is a premier trout fishing tail-water that flows from Greers Ferry Lake. Brown trout are considered native here, since they were stocked in the 1960s and propagate on their own. Rainbows are stocked but thrive here, with fish of 10 pounds and up not uncommon. This is a fly fisher’s paradise with plenty of wade fishing waters. Local fishing guides and outdoor outfitters can provide you with the fishing experience of a lifetime, whether on the river or on the lake.

Greers Ferry Lake is a 30,000 acre, clear water lake from which world record walleye are taken. The lake is a playground for all kinds of water sports. Dam Site Park/Marina is located just eight miles away and provides boats, party barges, tubes, jet skis, and other rentals for enjoying the lake.

The Greers Ferry area is the home of dozens of wintering bald eagles. Across the river, Magness Lake is home to wintering Trumpeter Swans which can be heard on the back patio. For hiking enthusiasts, Sugarloaf Mountain trails are located just five miles away.

JJ’s Riverhouse is the perfect vacation home with plenty to do all year long in this beautiful Ozark Mountain setting.

About Ruth Landers

The owners live in Arkansas and love the outdoors, spending the majority of their time farming, fishing, and exploring the state's natural beauty. Having widely travelled and stayed in many vacation rental homes, it is our desire to make our riverhouse a comfortable and inviting retreat for the length of your stay.

Ruth Landers purchased this house in 2016

Why Ruth Landers chose Heber Springs

We bought this home because of its unique and secluded location on a great stretch of the river. It is an ideal place to relax, enjoy the local wildlife, and trout fish.

What makes this house unique

This is a quiet setting and neighborhood with lots of outdoor activities: trout, bass, walleye fishing; boating, water skiing, tubing, jet skiing, kayaking, hiking.

Great relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great house and sitting outside at night listening to the river flow by the fire was relaxing. Not a lot of luck fishing, but had a lot of rain the previous couple of weeks so that’s probably why.

Great Location, Property and Home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at JJ's Riverhouse. The home was clean, comfortable and well appointed. JJ's is in a perfect location for the areas we wanted to fish. The riverside dock and outdoor patio was a great place to unwind in the evenings. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

Beautiful house, well maintained and stocked with supplies.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation at JJ's River House. The house and property are beautiful and well maintained. The furnishings are classy and the beds are comfortable. The house was very well stocked with all the kitchen supplies we needed as well as plenty of towels. Thanks for helping us have a great vacation! We sure hope we can return to this house again. The 11 of us could think of only one improvement to suggest which is to change the faucet in the front bathroom sink with one that reaches further out over the edge of the bowl. We also noticed that the middle step of the front porch has a loose brick. We loved sitting on the patio and on the dock, fishing, and watching the geese catch a ride on the river when water was let out of the dam. JJ's River House was the perfect place for our vacation.
