About Owner/Manager

We purchased this house and over a few years, with the help of family and friends, renovated it from the ground up. It was a big, fun, successful project! We and our children enjoy time spent there whenever life allows.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2006

Why Owner/Manager chose Cotter

Cotter is a nice small town with natural amenities where we feel at home. Our place is a bright, clean and comfortable place to relax and have a good time!

What makes this house unique

We especially enjoy the large yard, the deck, taking walks around the neighborhood, swimming in the spring, renting boats on the lakes and rivers and of course the fishing!

Great for a family

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed in this rental in April 2017. Our reason for visiting was to meet up with a group of friends that were trout fishing on the White River. The house had everything we needed. Linens, towels, a fully stocked kitchen, crayons and coloring books for our kids, etc. The only thing I would had would be a basic mixing bowl to the kitchen cabinets--otherwise it was perfect. The Cotter, Arkansas area is truly beautiful. There's not tons of activities, but if you just want to enjoy nature, this is a great place. The cable tv was a bonus for our 5 year old. He enjoyed watching cartoons at night after being outside all day.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfectly situated in downtown Cotter. We had 4 adult guest sleep comfortably. Close to several boat launches, grocery stores, and a quick 20 minute drive to Mountain Home.

Perfect spot for Cotter fishing!

  • 4 of 5

My family of 3 planned a quick weekend fishing trip and this house was fantastic! Located in town, we were close to the trout dock, river, swimming hole, and not far from the highway. The house had all the necessities needed, was clean, and plenty of room to sleep and hang out. We played board games and watched movies. There wasn't cable or wifi, which I think was a shock for my son, but we had a great time not being "plugged in".
