About the property

Premium Log Cabin with Great Views - Private, Secluded and on the River!

The privacy and seclusion of this romantic cabin is few and far between. There are no other cabins in site. Excellent choice for special occasions, anniversaries, and honeymooners. We also provide kayaks, canoes, and foot-paddle boats at no additional charge.

The first cabin is now complete (November 2016) and offers a great view of the beautiful Mountain Fork River.

If you love fishing and kayaking look no further. This is an AWESOME spot that has a path leading directly to the river along with your FREE kayaks, (4) person paddle boat or canoe.. Just another amenity that comes with your rental….

About Jody Stritch

From the time I first visited the Mountain Fork River / Broken Bow area over (12) years ago, it was love at first site. A time in Nature does a body and mind good. I loved the sound of the river flowing. The sound of rain splashing off a metal roof. Conversations late at night around the fire pit with family and friends. Spending quality time with those we love.

My wife and I live a fairly hectic life in Dallas like most and truly value our alone time we get a chance at a weekend getaway.

We begin with this cabin, “Just the Two of Us” for those times when loving couples are seeking that special time alone, with only nature as their neighbor and want privacy and seclusion.

We hope that you will visit us and take the opportunity to build memories that will last a life time.

Jody Stritch purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Jody Stritch chose Smithville

These cabins will offer the experience of being "slightly" off the grid" for privacy and seclusion but also close enough to the lake and restaurants. I believe that this area offers one of the BEST canoeing and kayaking from Arkansas to Broken Bow lake. We always have plenty of water for fishing and kayaking -- year round. Yes, even in the middle of August!

What makes this cabin unique

Certainly a one of a kind getaway. We have beautiful premium cabins with awesome views of the river but also provide "PRIVACY" along with great kayaking. Kayaks come with your cabin rental at no additional charge. We have a walking path down to the river, with beautiful rocky cliffs. We also have a deer feeders, not for hunting, but to allow others to see the beautiful wildlife that surrounds us. Lastly, the hot tub and fire pit are fantastic ways to end a lazy, thoughtful day.

Hesitant to Review

  • 5 of 5

Why am I hesitant to review? Because we want to keep this jewel as our secret! We have stayed in the area several times--always in a luxury cabin--but THIS is IT. "Just the Two of Us" is the keeper. This will be the only place we return to in the future when we want a get-a-way just for us! The seclusion is what sets this cabin apart from the others. It's farther from Hochatown and next time we'll stop on the way in and purchase our groceries so we don't have to leave the cabin. Once you turn off the main road, the awesomeness (is that a real word?) begins. Jody's dad has a cabin on the left--good to know someone is close by--but not TOO close--in case there are any questions or needs. Continue winding down the path and you pass the trail where you can get down to the river. There are 2 kayaks, 2 paddle boats, and a canoe--all included in the cabin rental. A short distance from there you'll find the cabin nestled amongst the trees. There is another cabin farther down the way but you really can't see it from this cabin. Once you open the door, all your stress melts away. Frank Sinatra croons away as you are greeted by the sweet aroma of the beautiful cabin. The impeccable decor is pristine. Granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, dark wood floors, leather sectional, large rock double-sided fireplace--the list goes on and on. You want fancy? How about auto close drawers in the kitchen; A dimmer on the shower light (which has a river rock floor and wood grain ceramic tile walls); and if you wonder why the bathroom light is dim...well that's on purpose, too. Who wants to get up in the night and flip on a blinding bathroom light? Well, this one comes on soft and dim and gradually brightens! (Who thinks of that?!) If you're not already transported to paradise, step out on the back deck and a bubbling hot tub is ready to soothe away any lingering stress of the world. When the hot tub shuts off, sit and listen...nothing but nature can be heard! Now fire up the grill and enjoy a steak dinner for two on the little bistro table. As your day draws to a close, you are met with a bed that is not only beautiful but it is like sleeping on a cloud! From the bed linens to the towels to the handsoaps to the dishes and cookware--this place is easily a 10 on a 1-10 scale! I'm a picky person and I cannot think of one single thing I would change about this place! We were both a bit misty-eyed when we had to shut the door to depart. But we will be back SOON!

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

A simple piece of heaven in the mountains is how I would describe our stay this past weekend at "Just the Two of Us." Every detail of our needs was anticipated in the cabin. We enjoyed the hot tub overlooking the river, cooked steaks on the grill, hiked for a couple of miles, and canoed up and down the river. The peace and serenity of the surroundings took us away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday life. We even had a dusting of snow when we awoke yesterday morning. We will definitely return!!

Relaxing and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay in this home, and it was as beautiful as we remembered.

The owner is amazing to work with and the home was clean and ready for us. The place smelled so good when we walked in...even the sheets and bedding smelled fresh and clean!

If you are looking for a private getaway, this is a great choice!

I am doing this for my son and fiancée that stayed at the property. First of all they loved the property, everything about it. They loved Broken Bow. They loved the scenary. My son proposed to her and they will be getting married 2020. Thank you Jody for your vision. People need relaxation, time and healing. I believe my kiddos did just that. God gave Austin the vision of life with Evelyn to be his wife, you set the vision.
