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.

The place is right on the river and perfect for our group. The back patio was great to hang out on. The house was clean and had everything we could ask for.

Great getaway! Spacious, clean, and beautiful scenery

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time in Heber Springs and our accommodations were awsome. We had plenty of room for 4 families and had everything we needed. The home was nice and clean.

We will be back.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed at JJs the first week of June. What a wonderful place. Everything we needed was here. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well-stocked, and the annex was perfect for our 4 young-adult children. My only regret is that we didn't have more time to stay!

Great Spot on the Little Red River!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this home on the river several times. It's a wonderful location, close to wading shoals with trophy water, quiet and roomy. The back deck is awesome for relaxing after a day of catching rainbows and browns. The dock in the warmer months is like having your own outdoor air conditioning (the water on this part of the river is cold year round). I can't recommend it any higher. Oh, and it has room for several folks to stay comfortably. Spend some time here, you'll come back.

Great Stay at Jj's!

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasant place to spend a weekend. The back patio is very relaxing-- a great place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and a good book. An easy walk down to the water brings you to a perfect spot to sit and watch the water, or try some fishing.

Stayed here with a group of 4 which worked out well. Nice layout of the house, great furnishings. Great fishing nearby. Good restaurants and fly shop a short drive away.

Would definitely recommend to a friend and would stay again
