Our Vaction here flew by & we sure don’t want to leave this wonderful place. We spent alot of time sitting on the deck, or by the river just watching the birds, butterflies & and other wildlife. Rode the Womble Trail on several days, and part of the Lovit Trail, absolutely some of the best riding we’ve had ( and why we keep coming back!). Also went for a float from Oden back to resort. Thank you for sharing your spot with us.

We arrived with mixed expectations – We were blown away with the accommodations. We were excited to see the washer boards and teether ball. The weather was not in our favor but we did get to fish for awhile. The grounds were gorgeous . We did some “long needed” relaxing. Before leaving we made reservations for Labor Day weekend. What a place..We loved our time here and the memories we made will last a lifetime.

Our family had a great time here. We fished, had a campfire and roasted smores, enjoyed horseshoes and washers. The residents black lab was a frequent guest who enjoyed playing with our children. The house was immaculate and well-kept. We loved the special touches like the baby toys, toiletries and internet. The bed were comfortable and the house was spacious for 3 children and 4 adults. We enjoyed the grill and nice patio deck. The grounds were beautiful and loved the proximity to the river! What a great time. We will definitely return!

What a beautiful cabin! We brought our daughter to Camp Ozark- what a perfect location. This is now our “official cabin” when we bring kids to Camp Ozark! Thanks for the bottle of wine and Anniversary card- So thoughtful! I highly recommend the Talimena Scenic Drive! Canoeing on the river was fun too-saw deer and a snake. Burls is the best for smoked meat. Thanks for a fun get away!

This was such an amazing experience! We came to Rocky Shoals to as a place to lay our heads between mining experiences. Our plan was to go to Arrowhead Mine, which was outstanding! Also drove to Murfesboro to Diamond mine. We went to visit Ted (one the owners) which was highlight of our trip. He has outstanding knowledge of area and mining. We love house #2 it is far better than any hotel. The cabin is beautiful, the area/view is so wonderful! We have already started planning our next trip and look forward to spending time with Ted, Kay, Bryan, and Michelle.

He also got an offer to go see fireworks at camp ozark and again had a great time! These are caring , fun and wonderful people who made our vacation even better. We love the dogs, my son had a great time playing with scooby. We cooked on the grill, had roasted marshmallows, and swam in the river. Great place and great owners. We will be back..Thanks

Our family had by far our best vacation yet here at Rocky Shoals. The river & grounds are beautiful and the house beautifully decorated & immaculate. Our only daughter turned 13 here & loved this place so much she can only talk about when we will be coming back. The games outside are great as well as the grill areas. The place truely felt like home and we are so sad to leave! I will miss waking before everyone to gather my coffee & things and go sit by/in the river in the mornings! Thanks for the kindness you showed to ole ferg as well. Til next time…Thank you!

A slice from Heaven! We just wish we could stay longer. Beautiful property with alot of charm. See you next year since we are planning to be back longer.
What a beautiful place here on the river! We also wish we were staying longer. So much to do without getting in you car: swimming in the river, washers, horseshoes and the firepit. The house is so comfortable. You have really thought of everything to make it feel homey. The basket of snacks is a nice touch! We expecially want to thank your dad Ted who was so helpful and interesting. Finally your dog Scooby has been alot of fun. Do all arkansas dogs retrieve rocks from river?

What a lovely, relaxing time we had here. Wish we had discovered your piece of paradise sooner. Now we dont want to leave. We could hang on the river for a few more days, growing lazier and fatter! We enjoyed a great visit with Ted on our last evening. Next visit we plan to spend more time with him , Michelle and Bryan, you are gracious “hosts”. Thank you for your hospitality. RE: Scooby- we were missing our dogs, but he is great subsitute. He might be the only dog that fetches stones.

This was a great , relaxing, wonderful week at the Rocky Shoals. We had a great time building a dam in the river, finding rock, floating and fishing (one fish was caught- a giant blue gill). It was great to visit with Ted, Bryan, and Michelle. Hope to come back to see you all again.

We had a blast! I think as a whole we liked the canoeing down the Ouachita. But we also had fun swimming and going into Hot Springs for a little site seeing. the cabin is awesome. We loved waking up and looking out onto the river. We even enjoyed our visits from Scooby and Bandit. We even got a chance to make some good ole smores. We even got one of our campers to finally try and Tv Dinner! Wow! So see this place does have miracles! We definitely recommend this to all families, this place is loads of fun. Plenty of activities are available for all ages. Thanks to the owners!

Thank you so much for everything and being so kind!

Michelle, Bryan you are such gracious host having everything ready for our arrival. Really enjoyed getting his truck tires wet. We truely enjoyed this relax time and hate to leave.

What an idyllic setting here at Rocky Shoals Resort! I can’t imagine a more beautiful landscape. We enjoyed being in the river looking at the interesting rocks, and sitting around the firepit and watching the numerous fireflies. Your home is so clean and well equipped. We loved the comfy chairs, and rustic furniture and cabin feel. Father and son were such gracious host, offering to help with every detail. Look forward to coming back for more Arkansas beauty and relaxation. Wish we could have stayed longer.
