About Owner / Property Manager

Granny Iva helped build this home with her own two hands. The rocks walls, patios and walkways were all built by Granny Iva over her many years of living here.

Born and raised in the Ozarks, she loved Newton County and dreaded leaving the mountains for any reason.

She'd be proud to know that visitors from all over would one day enjoy her rockwork and the quiet and peaceful Ozark hideout she created.

40th Wedding Anniversary Hideway

We loved this house from the moment we walked in the door. Everything was spotless and it smelled so clean. We enjoyed the wildlife we saw everyday, fox, deer and birds.

The house is nicely furnished no need to go pick up anything all the conveniences are here. The Back yard and Deck are to die for plenty of room to spread out. Centrally located for day trips or just stay here and relax. Highly recommend this house and the people who operate it!!!!!!

Great location “off the grid!”

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was exactly what we needed.

Absolutely NO cell service, close to hiking locations. We got here later than we thought, and it was a little hard to find, it’s THAT secluded.

Plenty of what you need for cooking and eating at the cabin. We actually did the online grocery shopping at the Wal-mart in Russellville, picked it up and headed to the cabin. Once you are there, there’s not much else around.

The book with the hikes listed was very helpful, and we hit almost ever one of them. We found lightening bugs, and had a couple of visits from a fox.

The property is pretty well maintained. Looks like the rock wall is about to undergo some renovation.

We hope to be back soon. This was a very relaxing trip!

clean, well kept house centrally located

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the house for 3 nights. It was clean, well kept and well equipped with kitchen supplies including a microwave and crockpot. The queen beds were comfortable. There was DISH TV. There is also a lovely backyard for kids to play in. But we aware that there is little to no cell service at the house (little cell service in entire area) and no wifi.

The house is centrally located to several hiking trails in the Ozark Mountains. About a 25 min drive to town where there is several shops and eateries. Would recommend this house to others
