'The Codex' Secluded Murfreesboro Cabin w/Fire Pit

City: Murfreesboro, Arkansas Property ID: 399164

grand total: From $105 total Per Night

    Get away from it all and spend some time reconnecting with nature during your stay at 'The Codex,' a 1-bedroom + loft, 1-bathroom vacation rental cabin in Murfreesboro, Arkansas! Eight guests and their furry friends will spend their days exploring the Arkansas wilderness and their evenings gathered around the fire pit making s'mores! Even though this home is tucked away in the woods, you'll be a short drive from everything Arkansas has to offer.

    -- THE PROPERTY --

    Bedroom: Queen Bed | Loft: Twin Bed with Twin Trundle Bed, 2 Twin Mattresses | Living Room: Full Futon

    With hardwood floors, wood walls and ceilings, and exposed wooden beams, this hand-made cabin provides each guest with a truly rustic feel! In addition to that classic rustic charm, 'The Codex' has all of the amenities you need for a perfect vacation.

    When you get back from a day of exploration, kick back on the futon and stream your favorite movies or shows on the flat-screen TV. Use the wireless internet access to search for fun things to do the next day!

    On pleasant evenings, step outside to the picnic area and use the charcoal grill to make a tasty barbecue dinner. Stick around after it gets dark and roast marshmallows by the fire pit.

    All 8 guests are bound to sleep well each night during your stay at 'The Codex.' You'll find a queen bed in the bedroom, a full-sized futon in the living room, and 2 twin mattresses plus a twin bed with twin trundle bed in the loft.

    Wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and cook yourself breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen. Make a cup of Joe and enjoy sipping your coffee out on the porch as you watch the sunrise over the treetops!

    -- THE LOCATION --

    'The Codex' is ideally situated on the southeast side of Lake Greeson - away from it all, yet just a short drive from tons of outdoor activities for the whole family.

    During your stay, you'll be just minutes from some of the best fishing in the area at Lake Greeson and along the banks of the Little Missouri River, which feeds the lake. Rent a boat at Swaha Marina for a day of aquatic adventures. Canoeing and floating down the Caddo River is also a popular activity for those who love the water.

    When you're not in the mood to cook for yourself, head to The Dam Grill at the Swaha Marina for some fresh-caught fish and down-home cooking.

    Hunt for diamonds and keep what you find at the Crater of Diamonds State Park! This popular destination is less than 12 miles from the cabin.

    Travel an hour to Hot Springs National Park for hiking and unrivaled vistas! If you're seeking a thrill, rent an ATV and explore Bear Creek ATV/Cycle Trail which offers 31 miles of backwoods ATV trails.

    Secluded in the woods

    We lived the privacy and the woods we we're surrounded by. The cabin was very comfortable and cozy. We will be back!

    As a couple with a dog this house was good size. Never felt cramped even with the sketchy weather. It?s is one of the few places we just felt like sitting and doing nothing. The deck is great. I took my 16? Jon boat and had a little issue with turning it around. Not much just a little tight, use the second entrance. There is a small boat ramp five minutes away at Parker Creek park. I used the marina which is 15 minutes away only because it was bigger. Overall Great, will return.

    Just Perfect

    Reviewed by: Makala on


    This little cabin in the woods does not disappoint. It has everything you need for a quiet get-away but wonderfully close to lots of different attractions. It is wonderfully set up: from soft mattresses to just the right amount of cook-ware to get the job done, we couldn't have been more pleased.

    Perfect secluded spot for a sister get away or a couples get away!

    Going Diamond digging... this is the Perfect spot to stay!! My sister and I went for a weekend and it was just right for us! It is secluded and in the woods. We really enjoyed going hiking around the property which is right next to a camp ground. We were able to go explore in the woods and on the hiking trails. That was a bonus for us which we didn?t know when we booked this place.. don?t plan on cooking a lot while your there cause the availability of stove top cooking is limited but that was okay with us... there is a stove top and we managed just fine! I really enjoyed our stay! And the owner is easily available for any questions or concerns! A++++

    Beautiful place in the woods.

    Reviewed by: Anthony E. on


    We loved our stay here. It is very quiet and away from the big city. We had a 4 night stay with only two people and found the bedroom to small to get dressed for the day. Other than that the tiny cabin had everything we needed. Like I said it was very quiet. I really can't imagine more than a couple or a family with 2 children staying here. We had fun fishing Lake Greeson and playing in the dirt at the diamond mine. We even took a 2 hour drive to Little Rock for a day trip.

    This place was just incredible! We stayed for 4 days and had a wonderful time at this cabin. Beautiful wood decor tucked into the woods! The owner is a very nice man who communicated with us and made sure that our stay was pleasant. If you are looking for a getaway in the woods, this should be given consideration. The Crater of Diamonds is a short drive from here and the entire town is so cordial and friendly. A+++++

    We loved this place! If you are interested in small homes, this place is for you. It is the size of a trailer on the outside. Inside it has the feel of an alpine cabin, complete with gorgeous wood finishes, a sleeping loft good for kids, living space with vaulted ceilings, & bedroom. Kitchen has everything you need, well thought out & usable. Ingenious use of space. Set in a lovely pine forest, it is quite secluded. We appreciated the outdoor fire pit & picnic area. Minutes from the diamond mine.
