Where you’ll be

Pencil Bluff, Arkansas, United States

This is an easy to get to, quiet place on the River where we like to watch the sunrise (if we get up early!), the sunlight dance on the water, birds flying by- sometimes we see eagles or osprey-, and deer grazing in the pasture below the house. At night, star gazing is phenomenal. In the surrounding Ouachita National forest, there are great hiking and biking trails, crystal mines and shops, flea markets with old stuff, and beautiful Lake Ouachita. There are a few restuarants in Mount Ida 10 miles away, Mena (about 40 miles south west) has a good selection of restuarants and shops and of course, Hot Springs National Park is about an hour away with many restaurants and attractions.
