My reviews aren’t great literary work, but I try to give a lot of detail. New owners took over the place very recently, so this may be one of their first reviews. LeAnn has made a great start and communicates well.
We stayed in Cabin #1, Lazy Bear. The coded lockbox for the key is on the wall next to the door and works easily. Directions are under the cover. There is a driveway light outside to make parking and front door access easy at night. No fumbling in the dark to get in. There were three of us, but the cabin is well set up for ten. It was perfectly clean. The wood interior is in great condition with new-looking ceramic tile and good lighting throughout. The living area has comfortable seating for eight. The days and evenings were cool during our stay, but the AC/heat wall-unit kept the temperature comfortable and is easy to set.
The kitchen has enough plates, utensils, pots, and pans. The kitchen table seats six (could squeeze eight) with a table on the covered porch to seat four more. The water has no smell or discoloration. The water has a mineral taste, as one would expect of that geographic area. It is not a bad taste and did not affect cooking. We saw no need for bottled water. The refrigerator is clean and the freezer has six ice-cube trays.
The bedrooms are clean and practical. The primary bedroom has a queen bed with a mattress that is comfortable and on the soft side. The second bedroom has two sets of twin-over-double bunks. One living room sofa is a pull-out. There are plenty of towels, linens, and blankets in good condition. The bathrooms are clean with good water pressure and fixtures that work smoothly.
The hot tub on the deck was in great condition and very clean. The controls are easy to use, the jets and lights all work, and it is built to seat six. There is no view to or from the neighbors from the hot tub, but there is a nice view of the hillside across the hollow and a decent view of the stars.
The location is excellent. It is only about 100 yards off Route 71 along a graded road, and is easy to find. There are a couple cell towers nearby, but T-Mobile is obviously not one of them. The proprietor’s warnings about remote grocery stores and restaurants is accurate. Our trip included seeing a performance at the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville which is a pleasant 40 minute drive up Route 71, if you are looking for more than burgers or pizza. This is a very relaxing place to stay. We will be back soon.
The cabin was really spacious and had plenty of room for all of us! The hot tub was so amazing. It was so relaxing to sit in the hot tub and look out into the woods and listen to nature. We will be back!
The cabin was wonderful. The spot was quiet with a great view. It had everything we needed.
Super clean and perfect for a getaway. Would definitely book here again!
Great place, fun, quiet, great hosts. They even offered us a free breakfast after the power was out a bit (no fault of their own). Jacuzzi’s were fun and always hot. We had a large group so multiple cabins offered a lot of space and larger cabin was a nice gathering spot. Chester, Van Buren and Fayetteville had good restaurants, activities to entertain us on the rainy days. Train ride was awesome. Chester cafe had nice breakfasts and lunch and we were able to get boarding stables for our horses in Chester. Great horse trails near Chester and Devils Den was challenging. All nice people. Small town with a big heart. We enjoyed our stay in the cutest cabins in the mountains. I would highly recommend them.
Excellent little cabin getaway. Clean and well stocked. We recommend Cabin #5 for the most privacy and it’s just down the road from Lake Fort Smith State Park.
Stayed for our 1yr wedding anniversary. Very comfortable, had everything we needed, and was a very peaceful and happy weekend!! Would definitely stay there again in the future.
Great price for the quality of cabin.we stayed in cabin 1. Peaceful place. Clean hot tub and roomy cabin. Not far from the lake. 2 bed room 2 bath.
My cousins and I had a great time at Deer Hollow! This is our second time there and it didn’t disappoint. The cabin was very nice, comfy, clean and the hot tub was amazing! It was a great getaway catching up with each other and having a place to relax. We will definitely be back!
Had a group traveling the TransAmerica Trail (TAT) on motorcycles and 4×4’s and this was our last stop in Arkansas. Lazy Bear 1 was a sight for soar eyes and rears. It was clean, comfortable, and it was good to soak my old bones in the hot before a restful night. Anyone doing the TAT, this is close to the end of the Warloop Road segment. I highly recommend.
