Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Mountain Home, Arkansas
Year 2 a total success
April 14, 2014
My family (12 people) and I stayed at the "Getaway" for our second year in a row. Once again, Ken and Marsha provided the perfect venue for a great family experience. Our grandkids romped and played outside while the grownups relaxed on the back porch. Our four days there flew by. Needless to say that we will be back again next spring. Thanks again folks for being such gracious hosts. By the way, the miniature donkeys and the deer feeder are great ideas. It kept the grandkids amused for hours. See ya next year.
Nice to see all of you again this year. The baby has sure grown as have the other little ones! Thanks for taking the time to leave your comments in our guest book and for the review. You guys left the house so nice....thank you! Glad the weather cooperated much better this year for your annual fishing trip. Your Trophy's were a great idea!!! We look forward to seeing you again.

We have stayed here before for a summer vacation. This time it wasn't for happy times... but rather for a funeral. Even so it was the best choice as we had 6 people and it was so much more comfortable than a hotel. The owners are so nice and accommodating. The neighboring burros were a great distraction. They LOVE carrots. One day we also had a beautiful doe grazing in the back yard. This would be my first choice when staying in this area, you can't beat it.
January 6, 2014
Great place and enjoyed the personal touches involved by the owners!! We had three couples in for a high school basketball tournament and the house was perfectly situated to enjoy Mountain Home, the lake and the White River/Cotter areas. We especially enjoyed a nice evening in front of the fire pit!! See you next year. Mark B.

Our family has grown so much that our house is not comfortable for all of us at one time. Ozark Getaway was the most perfect place for our family Christmas. There were plenty of comfy beds so no one was on the floor, the kitchen was so well stocked with utensils, small appliances and a double oven etc, it was a breeze to cook a large Christmas dinner. The big kids and little ones alike enjoyed feeding carrots to the friendly donkeys.Marsha and Ken made us feel welcome and at home. The house is beautifully furnished with large open spaces and immaculately clean. We will make this our home away from home for large family get togethers. Thank you Marsha and Ken for your hospitality.
Jeanie, it was such a pleasure meeting you and we are so happy you time together with all your children and their families this Christmas at our Getaway. Thank you for the review and for leaving the house absolutely spotless.....could hardly tell you had been there. Have a blessed Holiday Season and we wish you Good Health and Happiness in the New Year.

We had such a great time at the Ozark Getaway. It was a much needed peaceful environment. The place was so roomy and filled with beautiful natural light. We had fun watching the little donkeys and strolling through the nature walk.Ken & Marsha are such awesome and down to earth people. We were amazed at how quickly this place became a new tradition for us. We made a lot of good memories. We will definitely be back!

The days we spent here was the best of our vacation and we hope to return some day. The home was very clean, spacious and had everything that we needed. The quiet surroundings, the horses and donkeys made our stay very pleasant. My wife and I highly recommend this place to anyone.

A Great Home Away From Home
September 23, 2013
Prior to attending out Navy reunion in Branson, MO we wantede to find a place for us and some friends from Oak Ridge, TN to just lay back and visit. We couldn't have found a better place. The house is just beautiful and is fully equiped with just about anything you'd need. We were there for three days and really had a great time. One of the best times we had was feeding the four donkeys with the carrots we had brought along knowing the donkeys were there. I would recommend this place as a great place for just a couple of people or even a samll family reunion as the house has plenty of beds. We hope to return again one day.
Labor Day Retreat
September 16, 2013
I returned again to the Getaway this time with my sister, brother and friends in tow. It was their first visit and they all loved it! Everyone was impressed with their rooms. Each of us having our own TV's, and private spaces. As always it was immaculate. Never a worry about this house being clean, tidy & having everything you might need! Marsha and Ken give attention to every detail. We cooked steaks & shrimp on the grill and ate out on the deck,(You were hard pressed to get my brother to come in from the back deck!!) then we all enjoyed time together downstairs and watched a movie from the large selection on the shelves. We rented a pontoon & spent the day Sunday on Bull Shoals Lake, just minutes from the Getaway. We all had such a good time & are ready for our next visit. The perfect getaway!!
Best Place in Twin Lakes Area
August 27, 2013
My family spent the last 9 days of July at the awesome Getaway...we've stayed there about 30 days total during the past 3 Summers, and we will definitely be back again next year. The other reviewers are spot on...the Getaway is every bit as nice as most folks homes! Immaculate, incredible spacious, exceptionally well equipped (including gas grill, washer/dryer, dishwasher, and more flat screen TVs than you can shake a stick at), with wonderfully comfortable beds, on a peaceful and quiet 2 acre setting surrounded on 3 sides by horse pastures or woods, and across the street from a newly acquired 6 acre park with walking trails (owned by the Getaway). The 55' deck (about 35' under roof) is my "sanctuary"--I retire there every evening at sundown to enjoy some quiet time in the pristine setting. I can't get enough of this place, it's absolutely perfect for me and my family. Did I mention the attached 2 car carport? What a great convenience, especially when it's raining (which it did far too often during our stay this year), or really sunny and hot (getting into a cool car is wonderful). We got to use the new outdoor fire pit this Summer (an evening in the 50s, in late July???), it's yet another great addition to the Getaway. The owners constantly improve this place, I can't imagine what they'll do next! If you're a boater, Lakeview Cove Marina near the Bull Shoals Dam is 8 miles (about 12 minutes) away, slips to accommodate nearly any boat are readily available at $15/night and there's a free boat launch at the adjacent Lakeview Park. Multiple marinas and free boat launch locations on Lake Norfork are about 30 minutes away. There's a new Dollar General Store 1.8 mi. North of the Getaway, and a giant Super Walmart as well as just about any other store you could ever need (not to mention many restaurants) are about 15 minutes away in Mountain Home. The owners of the Getaway live next door on the horse ranch referred to in other reviews. The owners are incredibly attentive, they will be there promptly to answer any questions or address any problems...they are also a wealth of information about area activities, restaurants, etc. We've stayed in several area hotels as well as many different resorts on the twin lakes over the years, but nothing compares to the Getaway. Thanks, Marsha and Ken, for making this wonderful Ozark retreat available.

Just like home!!!
July 19, 2013
We were blessed to stay at this wonderful place while visiting with family who lives close by. I have stayed at a lot of different places, but this was the best by far. The home is clean and spacious. The weather was very hot when we stayed and the house was so cool and comfortable. They have everything you can think of such as videos, grill, a kitchen with all kitchen appliances. This will be a place we will stay at every year. This is the best kept secret.
Thank you for the lovely review and for taking such good care of the property during your stay here. We could hardly tell anyone had been in the house that week.....housekeeping was a breeze after your departure! THANKS!!! We look forward to your return to our Getway in the Ozarks! Have a wonderful summer!
Will be back again and again
July 8, 2013
Once again, we had a great time at the Getaway. This was my group's third stay at the Getaway. The house is stocked with everything you need. All you have to bring is yourself, clothes and food. The kitchen cabinets are filled with bowls, plates, cups, cooking utensils, pots and pans. It's peaceful and beautiful, and Ken and Marsha are absolutely wonderful! We loved the addition of the TVs in the downstairs rooms. We look forward to our trip each year!
July 5, 2013
With 5 families we had plenty of space and loads of wonderful memories. Fishing, hiking, wildlife, family meals, and the list goes on. Thank you guys SO MUCH for the work you put into the getaway.

Wonderful Place to stay
July 5, 2013
We had a great time in this house. We had 3 families staying together. It was a great place, my husband and I have 2 children ages 18 and 19 and my brother and his wife had 2 children ages 4 and 6 and my other brother and his wife do not have children yet. The way the house is built it was perfect for our 3 families. We took the downstairs with the older children who tend to stay up late and get up later, and left the upstairs for the younger ones who get up early to have a kitchen nearby. With the 3 bathrooms each family had their own bathroom. It was very well kept and just perfect for us. It was great for all of us. Thank you Ken and Marsha.

Amazing place to stay
June 24, 2013
We went with another family which made for 4 adults and 8 kids.This house had plenty of room for everyone. The kids lovedthe ddonkey's which were in the backyard behind a fence. Everything was clean, was supplied with anything and everything you could possibly need. The owners were so nice and helpful. Definitely want to stay there again.
Thanks Paget for taking the time to leave the nice review. We enjoyed all of you Louisianna folks and are so glad you had a good trip to the Ozarks. Thanks for washing all the towels and leaving the house clean. Sorry we weren't able to extent your stay another night, but were glad you were having so much fun that you wanted to stay longer. We were already fully booked for July! Have a great summer and come see us again.

This lovely home was the ideal place for our family get-away weekend. There was plenty of space. Everything was well-kept, clean, and orderly. Marsha & Ken welcomed us our first night and were so informative of area amenities. It was quiet and relaxing. We had everything we needed and more. We loved our time there!

Wonderful Getaway - We'll Be Back!
April 9, 2013
We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation. The house was bright, spacious and impeccably clean. The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen was better equipped than my own. We enjoyed relaxing on the huge deck, looking at the horses and donkeys (so cute!), and sitting around the fire in the evening. The area is beautiful - lots of outdoor activities to enjoy. We will definitely come again.
Thanks Juli for the wonderful review! So glad all of you enjoyed your vacation here in the Ozarks and were comfortable in our Getaway! I am sure the Donkeys and horses miss all the attention the kid gave them...we look forward to seeing all of you again. Thanks for leaving the house so nice and have a wonderful summer!

Fabulous Place to Stay
March 31, 2013
We absolutely loved this house and the owners!! It was much bigger than we expected. The beds and pillows were SO comfortable. As horse people ourselves, it was very relaxing to sit on the porch over looking the horses and donkeys ( who live attention). The house is well stocked with glasses, dishes and all other amenities. Food shopping is just minutes away. My daughter and I enjoyed our 2 mile country walks each morning thru the hills. We loved it so much---we are going to relocate from Illinois to Arkansas! I would highly recommend this property for your getaway!!!!
November 26, 2012
The Ozark Getaway is a great property. The house is roomy and the six of us enjoyed the gathering areas as well as the seperate bedrooms. The kitchen was stocked with all the dishes, pots and pans and appliances we needed to prepare our Thanksgiving goodies. We also enjoyed the back deck for morning coffee and the fire pit for roasting marshmellows in the evening...and we can't forget the friendly donkeys.

My large family spent the weekend here. 6 adults and 3 children. There was plenty of space. Although we did not have the chance to cook, we noticed the kitchen was very well equipped. We were at an assembly all day both days so did not have time to really enjoy the property. We look forward to returning and relaxing on the deck, warming by the firepit, and more.

Great Getaway Experience!
October 24, 2012
What a great place! The Ozark Getaway was everything we hoped for in a relaxing fall holiday vacation. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and eating. The backyard was so pleasing to view with horses and donkeys grazing in a picturesque pasture and the fireplace pit was perfect for enjoying the evening while snacking on s'mores. It was so pleasant we couldn't bring ourselves to even venture out to see the sights for two whole days. We figure we'll get to that the next visit! Thank you so much, Ken and Marsha, for allowing us the use of your fabulous home.
Thanks for taking the time to leave such a nice review. We are so pleased all of you enjoyed your visit to our little corner of the Ozarks. Adding the firepit this year has been a hit a big hit with guests, glad you also enjoyed it! We recently purchased the 5 acres in front of the Ozark Getaway to hopefully have a walking trail and biking for children ready for the 2013 season. We appreciated you leaving the house so nice and clean and look forward to your return visit to our Ozark Getaway! Be safe and have a great Holiday Season..... Ken & Marsha

The most enjoyable stay
October 13, 2012
The Ozark Get-a-way was such an enjoyable place!!! We went there for our Fishing get-a-way with 3 other couples from all over, and let me tell you, we had so much room! The house was exceptionally clean, with just about every amenity that you could possibly want! There was room for our three trucks with boats, with more than enough room for 2 or 3 more! Ken and Marcia are so friendly, and laughed at us when we called to tell them that my husband had broke one of their lamps and won the "Oh Sh**" award! The Mules in the back were so awesome!! We fed them Carrots, and they laughed at us! The fishing was excellent, and the scenery is absolutely beautiful! I would highly recommened this vacation rental to anyone who is vacationing in the area.
Thanks Lorie for the nice review and the guest book entry, as well as the laughs we shared with you guys. We are also looking forward to getting your photos. Congratulations to Tony on his award.....we already have the lamp replaced. We appreciated you calling immediately to let us know about the accident with the lamp, which gave us plenty of time to find a replacement before the next guests arrived. Thanks gals for cleaning the house so nice when you left. Diane was cleaning the glass on the front door as they were leaving & Jerry even booked the house before he left to be sure you gotyour "SNACK SHACK BaaaaaBY" week secured for 2013'! Have a great year and we look forward to your return trip next year!!!

3rd Times the Charm
August 1, 2012
I have been here three times and love it everytime.The view is beautiful , with cute little donkeys in the back, which we named Kicker, Digger, Tigger, Sweety, & Billy Bob Joe Jr. The house has two levels, both levels have a living area. The downstairs has a full sectional that reclines. That was our spot! The outside area is great with a deck upstairs and a patio dowstairs, a fire pit with nice chairs, & and a covered carport. My friend, grandmother, and I stayed for a several days and loved it. We willl definitely come back again.
Debra & Abby....You girls were a joy to have at our Getaway! The Donkeys miss you already! Love the names you gave them....Glad you had a good time and enjoyed your downstairs "Teen Den", as some of our guests call the Great Room! We always look forward to your return visits. Have a great year and we will see you in 2013!

Wonderful, absolutely100 times better than a hotel

I would stay there again! House was very comfortable, clean, and spacious. Two floors provided more than enough room for us. The donkeys in the back field are extremely friendly and cute. Owners of the house were very nice and easy to work with.

Our Ozark Home
June 22, 2012
We really enjoyed our stay. Based on reviews that we read, we were expecting a nice place, but were really surprised by how well kept and clean the house was. The area is so quiet and peaceful. It is hard not to feel right at home. We just loved the country surroundings and yet it's just a short drive to town. The covered parking, just outside of the front door, is a great idea. The deck across the whole back of the house is a real plus. We had a great time, better than we would ever have at a hotel. The next time we are visiting Mountain Home, we would love to stay at the Ozark Getaway again.

Beyond all expectations!
June 6, 2012
an absolutely beautiful setting. Secluded yet only minutes from the Buffalo River, the White River, Bull Shoals and much more. The hosts were amazing. The house has everything you need and is way better than staying in a hotel. The natural setting was so peaceful and relaxing.
You guys were a joy......You made me tired just hearing about all the hiking, canoeing, fly fishing, etc. that you did in the 3 days you were here. Glad you enjoyed your visit to the Ozarks and hope to see you again when you get back up this way! Thanks for cleaning the house so nice upon leaving. The TIP was not necessary, but appreciated! Have a great summer!
June 6, 2012
We had such a great time when our family got away at your Getaway! The house was perfect for all of us and the hospitality was great. The scenic views in the area are wonderful. The pastures were so nice to watch from the deck. We even got the see a doe come to the pasture and leave with a newborn fawn!!! Can't wait to come back. Thanks so much.
Thanks for cleaning the house so nice upon leaving.....you gals went above and beyond! The TIP you left wasn't necessary, but appreciated! The doe still beds her fawn down behind the Getaway each day. Glad everyone enjoyed themselves and we are looking forward to seeing all of you again!

We met with our daughter, grandson and wife for a time to get aquainted with our new granddaughter in-law. Walking into this house was like walking into a home. It has that atmosphere of welcome and feeling of everything is alright. There was not a thing we could think of that was not provided in the way of convenience or comfort. We just had to hang up our clothes and unpack the food! We were amazed at the how clean and well cared for the house and property were. We will definitely return if we get the chance. I must add that the owners were always on the look out to make special things happen for you like seeing the animals in the fields grazing, the donkeys loved to come visit at the fence line, wood for the fire pit, movies for that time of relaxation after you have toured the country all day, and I go could go on and on. The best way is for you to reserve a time for yourself and experience it all.
Thank you for all the nice things you said about our Ozark Getaway and for leaving the house so nice. We are glad you found your stay here to be what you expected and enjoyed a nice visit with your family. Please come again, if ever in the area. You are always welcome. Have a great summer!
Epic trip to the Ozarks
May 8, 2012
My 5 buddies and I spend a week in the spring and one in the fall on motorcycles riding the Smokey Mountains. This year we wanted to try something different and found Motorcycle Nirvana in the Ozarks. Ken and Marsha's home was absolutely perfect for us. Wonderful hosts combined with excellent accomodations and amenities made for an epic trip. We really enjoyed the patio overlooking the woods and pasture after a long day on the road. Great place to wind down, drink a beer and watch the stars come out. We're already talking about /planning a return visit this fall. Thank you so much Ken and Marsha!
Home Sweet Home
January 4, 2012
My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary in the Ozark Getaway, and we loved it! Very "homey" touch with all the accomodations you would need. The best part of it was the downstairs, we called it -"Our Cave". We just kicked back and watched movies! Marsha and her husband are so very nice and hosipitable. We would reccommend it!
December 21, 2011
My husband and I have 5 kids between us and I was lucky to find Ozark Getaway! The house was beautiful, very well kept, and had everything that we needed. The hosts were by far the best I've experienced. The kids loved the downstairs and took it over as their 'lair'. My husband and I were able to spend time with our family upstairs while the kids played downstairs. I could not think of a better place to go to get away for awhile. The land was beautiful and the kids had a blast feeding the animals through the gate. I recommend this house to anyone traveling to that area.
Thanks Ali for the nice review. You have a lovely family and we are so glad you and your family enjoyed their stay at our Ozark Getaway. We enjoying sharing our 'little bit of the Ozarks' with guests. Thank you also for the Guest Book entry you left and we look forward to your return visit. Happy Holidays! Ken & Marsha
Great all around...
October 24, 2011
Super nice owners, super accommodating. Great location- pretty views, remote enough to be "away" yet close enough to Mountain home to have great access to all the modern conveniences. Will be back!
August 14, 2011
Our family 4 sons and spouses vacationed at the Ozark Getaway in August 2011. The house was perfect, very roomy for a large family or group. The furniture and beds were all very comfortable and the open floor plan allowed 10 people to easily visit within one space whether 1st floor or lower level. We loved having 3 bathrooms which are all very large. The upstairs is open for gatherings and eating. We found the outside deck and covered patio which is accessible via master bedroom or dining area sliders an excellent place to relax and have coffee or meals. The lower level walkout is very light with nice windows and an open floor plan. The media area with sectional and built in recliners was a huge hit with the men! Gas grill is newer and large. Air conditioning excellent, was over 100 degrees during our entire stay and house was easily cooled with separate cooling units. Parking is amazing, plenty or room with easy access for any type vehicle and covered as well. The home has tons of windows providing outside light, is well kept, clean, easy to access from the highway and the setting is picture perfect, very peaceful. We have stayed at many rentals in the area even a top resort on the lake and found this home ranked 1st place. I would highly recommend this vacation home, you will not be disappointed!

Perfect Ozark Getaway Vacation
June 23, 2011
We spent our annual family vacation this year at Ozark Getaway and could not have picked a better place. There were 7 of us and the house was spacious enough for all of us and more. The house was extremely clean and beautiful. We loved eating out on the deck and cooking on the grill. We loved watching the horses in the pasture and got to pet the donkeys that came up to the fence. We had so much fun playing games on the big dining room table and just relaxing. There was 2 deer in the front yard one monring when we we got up. Marsha was the nicest person and made us feel right at home. We would highly recommend the Ozark Getaway to any family!!

65th anniversary get together
June 3, 2011
Family from Nevada, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas and Michigan gathered for a 65th wedding anniversary for my parents in Mountain Home. We found the vacation house to be perfect for our needs. We did have an infant and the house was pretty much set up for her. It had a pack and play and a high chair, as well as gates on the stairs. The house had lots of outside chairs for enjoying the scenic area. Several deer came into the yard and we enjoyed watching the horses in the pasture.

My family, 10 in all, came from all parts of the country, Connecticut, Utah, Colorado and Missouri to attend our son's wedding in Mountain Home and the owners of this home are AMAZING!!! They went out of their way to make us feel more than at home. The home was immaculate and if they home didn't have something, the owners made sure to get it for us. The deck is so peaceful and quiet in the morning, add coffee and it is the perfect start to the day. The rooms are ample size and the locati9on is just fantastic. We plan on making this Ozark Retreat the central location for all family reunions. Thanks so much Marsha & Ken
Clean by Home Economist Standards
September 30, 2010
Eight retired Extension Agents from different areas of Arkansas, who worked in the area of Home Economics got together for an overnight retreat at the "Getway". Everyone's first comment was,"It is so clean". We had a great time cooking in the well equipped kitchen, eating, laughing and enjoying each others company in a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere.

Better than ever
July 20, 2010
We are return guests from last year. With the addition of the covered porch and fan and new deck furniture, the house is better than ever!! So clean and neat, close to everything, very peaceful, and Marcia and Ken are just the best. Anything you need, they are at your service ASAP !! You can't beat this place and we will be back for a 3rd visit in the future. Thanks again Marcia and Ken for your fantastic hospitality and excellent retreat.

What a wonderful place for a family on vacation! The house was sparkling clean, fully stocked with the essentials and very comfortable! The new KS bed in the master suite was amazing! This will be our new place to stay every year!!

Holiday at Ozark Getaway
June 2, 2010
My family, seven adults and three children, spent Memorial Day weekend at the Ozark Getaway in Mountain Home, AR. We had a wonderful time! The vacation home was very clean, comfortable, and had plenty of room for our family to relax, dine, sleep, and just have a good time. The covered deck on the upper level was just great. We had other family members that live in Mountain Home over for a barbeque each evening, and there was plenty of room for everyone to be seated comfortably. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck in the morning watching the birds in the back yard and the horses in the field, and we enjoyed sitting out in the evening enjoying each others company. Marsha and Ken were very nice and really made us feel welcome. I felt that if there was anything that we needed they would have gone out of their way to provide it. I would highly recommend staying at the Ozark Getaway, and my family and I are hoping to plan another get together there in the near future.
Visiting for a wedding
October 16, 2009
We were SO VERY impressed with this house! It was SPOTLESS. There is plenty of room, and the view of the horses was a nice touch to help us enjoy our weekend getaway! Everything was perfect. We will be sure to stay here again when we return!! I spent a lot of time searching places to stay in Mountain Home, and this by far exceeded my expectations. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
Great place to stay in the Mountain Home area
August 31, 2009
This is one of the cleanest rentals we have ever had. Quiet, country setting within easy reach of Mountain Home, White River or Bull Shoals. Great for family get-togethers. Enough room to spread out and loved having laundry facilities right at our fingertips. Kitchen was large and perfect for cooking family meals. Two dining areas gave us enough room for everyone to eat. Just a perfect fit for our family. If we find ourselves back in the Mountain Home area, we will for sure stay at this vacation rental again. Owner are great people. Kind, helpful. Nothing bad to say about it. Don't hesitate...rent it and enjoy your vacation in comfort and style.

This place was clean and perfect for our family reunion. We had plenty of space for 6 adults, 3 children and a baby. We were able to cook and eat most of our meals using the cookware that was already there at the house. We loved the multiple common areas to visit, play games and watch tv. I visited about 7 other places in the area before booking this house. It was obvious that the other places took the pictures for the brochures in the 70's and 80's and have not updated the place since those pictures were taken. This was by far the best option of all of the places. There was no comparison. I can't stress enough how clean this place is.
Thanksgiving In the Ozarks
November 30, 2008
The house is very clean and roomy, could not of ask for a better place to spend the holidays. The kitchen had everything that you could ask for. We had 2 family's everyone had there own space. But we were there together to make it a great thanksgiving. This great property for all seasons at a great price. Thanks you Rick
October 22, 2008
It was a great pleasure to enter a beautiful house after a long journey from Texas. Ken and Marsha were great and took good care of us. The house was very neat and clean with all the facilities required. Would recommend the place to everyone and will come back to stay again

Best Place we've stayed in 30 Yrs. coming down!
October 11, 2008
I have to say that this was the cleanest, nicest place my family has stayed in the area. My family has been coming down to Bull Shoals lake and White River to fish and relax for 30 years. We are all neat freaks, therefore we always wonder how clean the place is going to be. With out a doubt I don't think you could find nicer! The home was big enough to spread out! The mornings drinking coffee on the deck watching the horses was great. Marsha and Ken came over to welcome us and make sure we had everything we needed. We would recommend staying here to everyone. Its a shame we couldn't have found it years ago. Guaruntee we will be back and enjoy it for many years to come! Thank you guys so much for the great memories and hospitality. P.S. Thanks again Marsha for saving us from the hotel room we were going to reserve! Had so much room to "get away" after being piled in the 4 man Jon Boat all day!!!!! Great Time and can't wait to see you guys and the House again!!!

Best place to stay in the Ozarks!
August 28, 2008
We love to retreat from busy city life to the relaxing beauty of the Ozarks. The Ozark Getaway is by far the most comfortable, spacious, imaculate, attractively decorated vacation rental we have found in this area. Lots of extra features and the owner's warm hospitality are the "icing on the cake." We plan to return often!

A week in Paradise
August 18, 2008
We had a great time and really appreciated being so close to Bull Shoals Lake. Everything is really close, the house is spotless, well stocked with every little thing you need, and so very roomy and comfortable. We plan on bringing more relatives next year. Think more than twice before you pass on this lovely retreat. Much, much better than a motel or campground.

We are three Co-workers that just needed a some down time. What a wonderful time! The house is exceptionally clean and well equiped. A great place to sit on the deck & vist, have a late night watching chic flicks or just unwind. Plenty close to lots of places to go out to eat or enjoy shopping or other activities if you can stand to leave this lovely home away from home. Marsha is attentive & friendly and never far away if needed, but not one to intrude. Already planning to get back! Had a great time!
June 23, 2008
This is a great place to stay for a family vacation. Very clean, quaint decorations, and plenty of room. Great location in Arkansas to explore different attractions but sitting on the deck enjoying nature was the best. Thank you Marsha for the great vacation house.
June 22, 2008
Having family that lives in the Mountain Home area, staying here was great! The house was big enough for us to have a very nice family dinner. Everything was so serene and just peaceful. I highly recommned this place. Marsha was very helpful. The mornings and evenings on the deck were so peacful. Thanks for a relaxing vacation.
What a great place!!

This little house is an incredible place to stay! Three of us girls needed to get away for a little break and it was everything we needed. The house is big and cozy and all we hoped it would be. The little surrounding towns were great as we were wanting to get away from the 'city' and enjoy quiet country. Arkansas is also a very pretty area and we'll definitely be back!
Cozy family time
March 17, 2008
A great place to draw your family close and enjoy what is important in life. Surrounded by nature, animals and good folks, there's nothing like the Ozarks. The Ozark getaway is a great place to get away to. There's plenty of things to do outdoors and the the bunk house is an inviting place to spend private time. Enjoy
November 28, 2007
WOW, we just wanted a place to take our little guys for Thanksgiving. Ken and Marsha are wonderful caring people. Thank you so much for your hospitality, the house is beautiful and very kid friendly. Again thank you for the basket of fruit for the kids, they loved it!

Some of my family members traveled here from Texas to attend my little girls wedding over the weekend. The weddng was at Bull Shoals State Park, which is just minutes away. It could not have been a more perfect location for them. The spacious house was absolutely beautiful with all the conveniences of home. They enjoyed their morning coffee everyday with a lovely veiw of the horses grazing next door. They were absoluteldy in awe of the scenery. Marsha was so kind and accommodating to them. Thank you again for making their trip extra special.

Carney Family Reunion
July 24, 2007
Where should I start? Marsha came by not long as my grandmother and I arrived. My parents arrived shortly after that in their RV. Marsha and Ken spent quite a bit of time calling around to campgrounds trying to help us locate a site for my parents RV. Marsha even went to a mobile home park to check it out for us! The house is beautiful! There are all the amenities of home. I love the huge deck and patio. It is very peaceful sitting on the deck, looking at the horses, and listening to the sounds of the country. The Citgo convenience/gas station is very close by and we were able to find last minute items there. My sons went to play basketball not too far away. My mom, brother and his family went fishing on Thursday...mom caught 10 fish! I took my grandson and granddaughter to the petting zoo, which was less than 2 miles from the house. We were able to pet a zebra, water buffalo, donkeys, horses, baby deer, and dogs. There is a bull there that has huge horns...each horn weighs 100 pounds! We didn't get to the riding stables until 1:00pm and they only have horseback riding in the morning because it was too hot for the horses. Grandkids enjoyed petting the horses. Loved the house and the hospitality of Marsha and Ken!

BEAUTIFUL AND RELAXING!
July 2, 2007
Bring your change of clothes and your toothbrush, that's all you need. The Gibson's are the loveliest couple. They will go beyond the call of duty to meet your every need. This home is just beautiful. The pieceful view from all windows is great. Waking up every morning to natures great sounds was wonderful. My children truly enjoyed seeing the horses grazing in the pasture everyday. There is a full size deck on the second floor for grilling and outdoor dining that is just fantastic. It is centrally located for easy access to everything you can think of. The site seeing is spectacular. The views from the Dam's are beautiful. Let talk food!! The Mexican restaurant down the road and the Brick Oven Pizza place in town is great (located in the Walmart shopping center). If you love BBQ, you have to try two spots. The mobile cart down the road from the Gibson's and Angler's Restaurant (WOW! what great food and WOW what a view). Take my advise. Look no further. This is the most perfect vacation home to come stay at. Why stay at a hotel when you can stay in the comfort of a home. Trust me you won't regret it!! P.S. Thanks Marsha for ALL of your help and for making small dreams come true!! The children ask that you please give a huge hug and kiss to Squa for them. If you ever need anything please don't hesitate to call. You have a huge fan club. We are your NO. 1 fans.
If you don't stay here, you are missing out!
June 3, 2007
We researched many properties in the area before deciding on this one and we were very happy with our choice. The house is enormous, tastefully decorated, and pristinely clean. There are beautiful views from both floors of the Gibson's horse farm. There is an enormous deck on the second floor and and patio on the first floor for grilling, enjoying the view, and down time during your stay, and a great movie-watching set-up on the lower floor where our whole group of 7 watched movies together. This house was centrally located for everything we came to enjoy - fishing and canoeing the White River, boating on Bull Shoals lake, and hiking. The Gibsons are a lovely couple and work hard to make sure you are taken care of and have what you need. If you have young children, there is a large yard for them to run in and a crib and high-chair are available as well. We highly recommend this property and hope to return for another vacation there!

Ladies week-end out!
April 22, 2007
Myself and 12 other ladies spend the week-end at the getaway and had a marvellous time. The place has a very quiet and peaceful setting for just a quiet restful get away but it also has so many things that you can do within just a few miles. We will return and have already discussed having a couples outting and I want to take my daughters and their families and spend a day on one of the lakes.

What a wonderful visit to the Ozarks! The scenery in the immediate area was beautiful. The "getaway" house provides all the comforts of home and convenient to many attractions.
I will return!
