Comments: This is the ideal setting for a relaxing and peaceful weekend getaway from city life or even a full time residence. No traffic, no hurrying, just simple life away from the hectic city. This is a very unique property that provides access to both Billy Creek and the Ouachita National Forest Recreational Area. This cabin offers “Off the Porch” access to the 4-wheeler, side by side and hiking trails on the National Forest. In my opinion, this property can be classified as true “Investment Grade Recreational Property”. This cabin could easily be rented out on a part time basis for a secondary source of income if desired.
