The SpaceYou'll know you're on vacation when you walk in. Quaint wood cabin, but with all the amenities! Sunny and bright, cozy and comfy. You'll have trouble deciding whether to spend your days inside snoozing, on the deck watching the wildlife and scenery, or getting active on the lake and trails! Guest Access900 sq. ft. cabin with 1 bedroom, loft, den, kitchen and bathroom. Sleeps 6 comfortably. BBQ on the deck, or full kitchen for cooking. Washer & Dryer (stacked - so small), air conditioning or heat, microwave...but you'll have to wash your own dishes (hey - you have to have SOMETHING to remind you that you're "roughing it"!) Interaction with GuestsIt's all yours! The NeighborhoodQuiet & remote. Some folks on "the ridge" are full time; some come for the weekends to enjoy the serenity of the woods and forest. Getting AroundYou'll need a car to get to and from, as well as for getting into town for supplies if you don't bring them with you. Also, Ward's Landing is within walking distance, but the "designated" swim area is on the other side of the lake...too far to walk. Be aware that cell/gps service can be spotty both at the cabin and on much of the drive to the cabin. There are some maps and brochures you can use once you arrive, but consider printing instructions before you leave. Other Things to Note1) There are some fun outings if you want to drive to see them...besides the obvious (Ouachita State Forest), there's the Runestone in Heavener (a nice park - good for a picnic!) and the Spiro Mounds. 2) This is not a "plugged in" kind of place. We don't have (can't get) wifi or internet access. Some cell phones get ok reception at and around the cabin, others can't get reception at all. Plan ahead - you won't have internet and you might not have cell access. Oh my goodness - you might have to read a book! (P.S., we have LOTS of board games at the cabin!)

The SpaceIf you are looking for a break from the city, calm and peace with amazing lake-mountain views; look no further! Our cabin has 360-degree mountain views from atop your own hill with a 180 degree view of Sardis Lake. The cabin is well maintained, tidy, clean, with all the right luxuries! A master bedroom is on the second floor, with a private bath and personal balcony. This allows you to lay in bed and take in the views. The cabin is technically 1400 square ft and there are two bedrooms on the ground floor. When you arrive; just kick your shoes off, make a cocktail and enjoy the sunset over Sardis. This part of the country has unique heritage and natural beauty, as well as being a hunting and fishing paradise. (Please, no shooting when you are at the cabin at Sardis Acres!) You can go for a walk-up the mountain (down the hill and take a left and go up the road) or cross over the street to the Army Corps campgrounds and rest by the lakeshore. There are two State Parks nearby. The famous Robbers Cave State Park is only 35 minutes away and something to see, especially for young kiddos too. You can take a Cowboy guided horse-trail ride for a few hours as they take you through the forest. And, there is Clayton Lake State Park just 15 minutes away; a magical place! We highly recommend packing up a picnic of wine and cheese and throwing down your blanket and letting the serenity of Clayton Lake State Park surround you! Guest AccessYou will need an SUV, truck or larger/heavier car to get up the steep driveway. The 7-acre property is dense and rocky; we're making some trails, but be sure to bring hiking boots or tennis shoes and be careful when you tootle around the property. Walks are best up the mountain (we can explain more but you go down our hill then left and up the mountain and it will curve around and around so you get a great hike and then more amazing views) or across the street at the large camp grounds surrounding the lake. You can bring your own boat and rods and go for a fish; there is also a smaller quaint lake nearby that we fish and Kayak on. Let us know, we'll let you know! Interaction with GuestsIf you have any questions, want advice, or need any information about what to do, where to eat or what lures catch the fish; please contact us at anytime! We will contact you after you make your reservation, and will be reachable 24/7 while you there if you have any questions. But we won't bother you at all! To give you a sense, the cabin has played host to a Kung Fu retreat (7 men/1 lady) where excursions to the lakes and parks made excellent natural spaces to work-out (see one photo we posted of the beach right across the street!) and the cabin was perfect for small group lectures and watching instructional videos. Couples have visited for a quick retreat to celebrate their anniversary, despite the modest kitchen, they brought an assortment of food, wine, champagne and cooked up an authentic Seafood Paella (in a Paella pan!) over the outside grill under the moon and stars. We have had many guests come alone too; to meditate, to work on a manuscript/book, or do whatever they like. We relate whole-heartedly to all these reasons to want some time away in a safe, beautiful and serene space. It's an escape from Dallas or Fort Worth and a precious part of America that makes you love our country. We won't bother you when you are there, and we will do our best to advise you to design the perfect stay! Because we love the cabin and the area very much. The NeighborhoodThis property is secluded with very few neighbors. The towns of Clayton and Yanush are only 7 and 3 miles away; both are very small. However, you are just a quick trip to Clayton and can pick up anything unexpected; there is a pharmacy, liquor store, buffet restaurant, gas-station, Dollar store, and mini-mart. But we suggest you plan as if you are on your own with plenty of food and drink and merriment! Hunker down and enjoy the peace because this cabin is really for those that want to get away, relax, stare at the views, eat, drink, fish and explore lakes and State Parks. No cable TV or telephone but we have tested it and the cell coverage is great for connectivity, safety, and emergencies. We have a TV (DVD and VCR) - with over 80 DVD's for movie watching only (bring your favorite movies to watch if you want). If you need to work, the dining table turns into a great desk facing the lake and you will need to hotspot over your cellphone; guests with AT&T have had excellent coverage and bandwidth to do this. Ask if you have any questions and we'll surely guide you to make sure your stay is comfortable, peaceful, and serene. Getting AroundThings to do while staying at this lake house: -Cooking, Sleeping, Reading, Eating, Drinking and Merriment. -Use the full kitchen, smoker, grill or gas grill! -Trekking up the mountain or down to the Lake Park across the street. -Fishing Sardis and surrounding Lakes. -Visiting and hiking area State Parks (Robber's Cave and Clayton Lake) -Hunting Public Permitted Hunting lands. -Make an adventure! -My favorite.... Nothing and just relaxing! ***** It is highly advisable to bring an SUV/TRUCK especially to get up and down the steep driveway. ***** Other Things to NoteThere is a steep driveway that takes you up to the house. It is highly recommended that you bring a larger-heavier car, SUV or truck. Plan ahead for your meals, snacks and refreshments and bring them. Bring it all, we load up our juicer and small chopper because we love to make fresh juices for breakfast and cocktails, and then use the a small chopper to whip up our crazy salsa and sauces. The house has a septic sewage system so no oil, coffee grinds, grease or personal products down the drain. Have to stay on top of that! We have a Keurig personal coffee maker for guests so you can bring your favorite tea or coffee and the pods are manageable for disposal. There is a french press, you just have to go pour the grinds out outside; ahhh the country life! We love it.

The SpaceThe park and campgrounds are located in the "Poteau Mountains", just a few miles North of the Ouachita National Forest (Winding Stair Mountains). Runestone park has an overlook that provides an amazing view of the local town and countryside! At night you can see ALL the stars!... not just some of them... It's so dark, you've probably never seen that many stars! It's a great place for telescope use, if you do the star-gazing thing. If you like forest animals, you'll have a great time trying to figure out who all is "talking" in the night trees! Guest AccessYou'll have access to the restroom facilities (sorry, no inside showers), the playground, the hiking trails, amphitheater, and the Runestone itself. There's plenty of rocky areas to explore, waterfall (during rainy seasons), and other natural resources to find! Interaction with GuestsThe Park Managers (husband and wife team) live on the grounds, in case there is any problems. The park is monitored and patrolled by the local city authorities, to control issues within their scope. Daytime interactions: abundance of birds, small animals, and perhaps some larger animals. Nighttime interactions: there are stories of Vampires, Ghosts, Aliens, and Bigfoot! If these interest you, it may be possible to arrange a "play-date" with someone who can tell you some of the stories. (we also have several books, in the gift shop, that detail some of these stories) The NeighborhoodTall pines, huge oaks, cedars, and elms... those are the closest neighbors. The closest town (Heavener) is about a mile. Heavener has various gas stations, dollar stores, grocery store, laundromat, fast food, a couple of full service diners (including the Southern Belle, a vintage rail road dining car turned diner (URL HIDDEN) ) Getting AroundLarge parking areas... that's not a problem. Public transportation is not available. The driveway, up the hill, and into the park, is very steep. Be aware of this. Other Things to Note(URL HIDDEN) (URL HIDDEN) (visit here to find out about park events and to interact with the Park Manager) (URL HIDDEN) (some of that needs to be changed)
