It features beautiful tongue and groove pine walls and ceilings with available sleeping for 8: a queen-sized bed in a private bedroom, a futon full sleeper in the living room, and a twin trundle bed and two twin foam beds (that combined make a king-sized bed) in the loft. There is a full kitchen with a side-by-side freezer/refrigerator, cooktop, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster and a toaster oven/broiler.  The living room features a 43" LCD Smart TV (Roku enabled) with available streaming via the internet and a Jensen multimedia center for radio/DVD/CD entertainment and Bluetooth capability.

Home to the longest zipline in Arkansas

During the summer of 2012, we had the pleasure of Introducing “Iron Horse”, the Highest, fastest, longest zipline in Arkansas. It is one of the top zip lines in North America. It is nearly a half mile long and with a vertical drop of 277’ and top speeds of over 50mph, it is a heart pounding and yet very smooth, comfortable experience. You will sail 2300’ over the beautiful Canyon towards the main lodge. At one point you will be over 300’ above the valley floor. Don’t forget to open your eyes! Not sure if you are ready for the Iron Horse? No problem. You can start out on the 600’ “Pony Express” to warm you up. A perfect trainer zip line for those that want to ease in to adventure.
