About the property

3 Bedroom Remote Cottage With Sylamore Creek Access

Cabin at the Creek is a dedicated vacation rental located about 15 minutes from town and most area attractions. It is in a sublime meadow with direct access to S. Sylamore Creek (pronounced like Sycamore). You will experience full immersion with Ozark hollow living and most creature comforts for 8 people.


Cabin is 1300sf+-. 2 levels with ground level covered porch and upstairs deck for stargazing. (1 bedroom and queen sofa down, 2 bedrooms up.) It is located about 100 yards above the floodplain of the creek. You amble down the meadow to access the creek. Creek is good always except in high water events. You can expect it to be about 1-3 foot deep on average. It is spring fed, year round, gin clear and healthy. Trout will run it winter months. Smallmouh fishing is possible during higher water levels. (Please catch and release the smallies)


Guests have access to home and all amenities including stocked kitchen and W/D, wifi and internet streaming TV, creek frontage with easy creek access, bonfire area, grill and starlight that will melt you.


* There is a studio cabinette 20+ yards away from this remote cabin that is also available. It sleeps 2. VRBO# 955554 . We have set in motion strict privacy functionality for both properties. If you wish to retain the cabinette without access to it contact us for discount options. Otherwise it is on the market for regular rates. You are able to see its proximity in the photos.

*Last 1 mile to the Cabin is steep gravel road. Sedans can make it ok. If it snows while you're here, be prepared to stay a while. As mentioned I live downstream a bit with a 4x4 truck and can assist - after it's melted some.

*Cell signals iffy depending on carrier and location at the Cabin. There is a booster installed. Wifi calling and texting now available on newer model smart phones. Needs to be activated in advance. Also plenty of apps on the market that can keep you connected via wifi.

*Dog friendly property. Please state your pet guest intentions upon booking. Dog fees: $45 for 1st dog and $15 for each additional. No more than 3 dogs allowed. We go to great lengths to keep property welcoming to those not dog friendly. (and we have several rules you must adhere to if bringing your dogs. We love dogs by the way and oh boy do they love it here)


This is my friend Emily's Cabin. I've been living on this creek for 10 years. My hospitality hobby is now my profession. I will manage all details of your stay and insure you have all questions answered and are a satisfied and returning guest! I'm in touch by text, phone and email before during and after your stay. I can help make intros to local musicians, outdoors folks and artisans if you ask. Most likely you'll never see me, but I'm not far at all. Gravity keeps me pretty close to this creek. Speaking of, have you heard about our local craft brewery? Gravity Brew Works?


Upon booking confirmation you will receive an area guide and recommendations from myself and some pals. This will also include more details about the immediate environs. Directions. keypad access. trash. etc.

About Virginia Ivy

Former City Mouse that has been living on Sylamore Creek for last 9 years. This creek is my touchstone. I'm a river rat - or otter as the case may be; when not working am mostly on the buffalo river or the springs and creeks in this county 3 seasons out of the year.

The greatest guests I could ever imagine have walked through these doors.

I think I have visited over 30 countries and have always enjoyed staying in private homes - as long as I can remember.. When I return from trips now, I have a sense that I am still on vacation. This is such an extra-ordinary place with so many talented people and so much natural beauty. This place still has a feel that it is off the map.

I treasure witnessing the stress drip away from people just arrived from the rat race.

I recently left corporate life and am focusing solely on vacation rentals now because I love sharing this area with others more than anything. Am a realtor with Garland Co Real Estate - can find my contact there on the Arkansas tab.

Definately Coming back some time.

  • 5 of 5

We came in on Friday afternoon and kids were able to play in creek that afternoon until sunset. We had a bad thunderstorm Friday night which made creek turn into fast river so kids could not play in Saturday, but they were able to go to the Caverns and spend the afternoon and had a great time there. Lot's of room for the kids to play outside and run off the energy. Were able for the big one's to get kyak into water Saturday evening and they had fun. Sunday water had gone down enough for kids to play in creek again. Only bad thing was we had to leave by noon on Sunday so just not enough time.. When we come back again we are definitely staying an entire week. House was spacious and comfy. Only problem we had with house was water pressure for bath/shower is very weak, but other than that house was great..... The other 2 cabins were rented out also, but all was quiet. So hope we didn't disturb anyone with our crew. Thanks for the memories..

This is just what we needed. Everything is nice and clean. The kids had a great time running in the field, skipping rocks and fishing in the creek. It was so enjoyable there we didn't even leave until it was time to go home and we were not ready to go. Now we are counting the days til we can come back!
