Arkansas Cabin Rentals
RiverView Cabins and Canoes
Arkansas Cabins - There are many cabins to
choose from in the beautiful state of Arkansas.
A new favorite of ours is RiverView Cabins
and Canoes located just east of Mena in the
town of Oden.
This is a beautiful area not far from the Talimena
trail. The cabins are nestled in the Ouachita
National Forest with nice views of the mountains.
If you love the outdoors this spot offers beautiful
scenery, great outdoor activities, or a nice place
to kick back, relax and listen to the distant rustle
of the nearby river.
There are twelve cabins surrounded by over one hundred acres of wooded, hilly property located
along the Ouachita River. The property is very nicely kept and the staff is very helpful and friendly.
The cabins range from extra small to large. Many of them have sleeping lofts and decks equipped
with hot tubs. There is even a bunkhouse that sleeps sixty people to accommodate large groups.
We stayed in cabin #4 - Sunflowers. It is a small log cabin with a cozy living room, kitchen dining
area, a bedroom and bathroom downstairs and a small sleeping loft with two twin beds. This was
just perfect for our family of four, and offered a nice alternative to a hotel room. There was also a
large deck on the back with a hot tub and patio table. The deck offered great views of the
mountains and the rustling water from a creek down below was very peaceful.
We visited in April, 2008 and had a wonderful time. The temperature was just perfect at about 70-
80 degrees in the daytime, but still cool enough at night if you wanted to enjoy a fire. There are
plenty of hiking trails nearby and great fishing is available on the Ouachita River. The on-site
riding stables make it very convenient to take your family on a trail ride, and the guide is very
helpful for beginners.
Canoe rentals are also located on-site, and If you are adventurous you may even want to rent
one. However, be careful because the river is ever changing and fallen trees or other obstacles
may be present causing your canoe to flip over. This happened to us and it was a little more
excitement than we were looking for.
