About the Property

3 Bedrooms / 2 Baths / Fully Equipped Kitchen / Screened-In Porch / Boat Dock

The River Bend Retreat is a custom-built single family home located on the banks of the Little Red River immediately downstream from the well known Jon's Pocket area of the river. Guest's have private access to 210 feet of riverbank which includes a private boat dock. The river area immediately behind the property is prime fly-fishing water for rainbow and brown trout. We strongly encourage catch & release.

River Bend Retreat is completely furnished, and has a fully equipped kitchen. There are 3 bedrooms, and two bathrooms to provide a comfortable stay for up to 8 guests. 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.

Outside there is a fire pit on the river bank overlooking the water. There is also an outdoor screened-in kitchen-dining area with charcoal grill that overlooks the river. 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.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: My wife and I bought this property from the original owners in 2014.

Why Heber Springs, AR, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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, crappies, catfish, and bluegills.
