A screened-in porch overlooks the river as do two of the bedrooms and the living room-dining area of the house. A gas log fireplace in the living room adds cheer & warmth during the cooler months.

This outdoor dining area is approximately 385 sq-ft, and is perfect for family reunions, rainy day bbq's or fish frys, and just hanging out in the summer.

About Jan Pilkington
My wife and I bought this property from the original owners in 2014.
Jan Pilkington purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Jan Pilkington chose Heber
The house was built in 2005 on 1.7 acres on the banks of the beautiful Little Red River. It is a beautiful, custom-built home on a prime section of the Little Red River. We love staying at this house, and the water views are fantastic. Fly fishermen will love the river area immediately behind the property which is just down stream from Jon's Pocket at the tail end of the island. The Cow Shoals Wade-In area is about a 1 mile drive upstream from the property. Bird watchers will be able to see both song birds and numerous waterfowl along the river plus the occasional bald eagle sighting. It is not uncommon for us to see deer and turkeys in the area or on the property.
What makes this Cabin unique
The view of the Little Red River from the back of the house and screened-in porch are fantastic. Fishermen have private access to the river bank plus the convenience of a private, lighted boat dock. We have both a screened-in porch and screened-in outdoor kitchen area overlooking the river. This makes the place perfect for family reunions, or a weekend getaway with the family or friends. Kayakers & canoeists have clear, open access to the river bank for launching their water craft. The town of Heber Springs is approximately 6 miles away. Greer's Ferry Lake is has excellent fishing for walleye, largemouth & smallmouth bass, hybrid bass, crappie, catfish, and bluegills.

Very beautiful views & everything you need for a great vacation or weekend getaway.
Staff is very friendly, great weekend getaway our family of 8 loved lt!!
Our family stayed here for a little vacation & family reunion. It is a beautiful place with enough room for all us--3 married couples & a toddler. The kitchen was well-stocked with nice applicances, pots & pans, & utensils, the beds were comfortable, everything was clean, & the view from the back was amazing at all times of the day. We just stayed here & cooked instead of eating out! We all enjoyed the screened-in back porch, especially the toddler, & we enjoyed the decks & the dock. Miss Carol & her assistant are so nice to work with!
family from Louisiana

Perfect place for our short retreat
What a great place! Not too far from town or from the boat ramp location !! The cabin was beautiful and clean and perfectly arranged !! Everything we needed was there !! Fully loaded !! I felt like we lived there ! It was the perfect distance from the river dock and the fire ring was an added perk ! And we loved the screened in kitchen for our big gathering one night after a day on the lake ! Ms carol was so good to work with and professional and knew all the answers ! I won't even look anywhere else next time we are ready to head to the little red !! This is OUR place now !!
Fantastic place for a girl's weekend. Right on the Little Red River. This home has a large open area where the kitchen and living room meet. It's a great space for mingling over the kitchen island. I could live on the screened in porch! It overlooks the boat dock and the river. Short drive into town, and we enjoyed shopping in downtown Heber. Nice area for walking and biking with little traffic on the roads. Home is tastefully decorated to make you feel right at home.
This private property is located alongside prime fly fishing waters, and also offers guests close proximity to the famous Cow Shoals & Jon's Pocket areas of the Little Red River. Guests wishing to launch kayaks or canoes have easy access to the water from this property.
