April update

We’ve been taking advantage of the Corona Virus staycation and working diligently on the cabins and the property. Landscaping has improved, we built a chicken coop (fresh eggs anyone?) we’ve added a flagpole (yay Murica!) and we’ve been staining the outside of two of the cabins. The exterior staining of the cabins is a slow process because it’s weather dependent and much of its labor/time that goes into stripping it just to prepare to stain. We anticipate being finished with that by May 1. We also have started working on the lodge, we were hoping to have it completed in April but now we’ve moved that back to June 1. It’s warmer now woohoo, and spring is beautiful, we are taking reservations for May, can’t wait to host you.

Latest updates and plans

As of Valentine’s day we now have a King bed in the main bedroom in each Cabin. We have updated some ceiling fans and blinds. We still have some blinds on back-order and some more fans to install as well as light fixtures.

The next major project is to remodel the Lodge. The lodge is our largest unit, a 3 bedroom log cabin home that adjoins the Luxury Cabin. We are putting in new flooring, paint fixtures, etc and will hopefully have it online by April.

Updates- king beds

We’ve begun updating the cabins, we are prioritizing and replacing critical items first. We have upgraded beds in some units already, a four post canopy king bed in the Luxury suite, a king size log bed in the Chalet and a king size log bed in the Loft. A king size log bed is being built for the Cozy cabin and then we will install it soon. We’re excited about upgrading our guests comfort.

Welcome to Bear Mountain

Melissa and I have recently purchased Bear Mountain Log Cabins and are very excited for this new adventure. We are in the process of updating and remodeling the cabins and grounds. If you have suggestions we’d love to hear them as we want to make this the best guest experience we can.

Location was one of the main drivers for why we bought Bear Mountain. The Cabins are close to several big attractions; Mountaing Biking at Leatherwood, Beaver Lake, White River, Table Rock, Holiday Island and of course Eureka Springs.

The peaceful settings and wonderful views from the cabin decks and from around the property really made us both see there is something special here, we hope you do to.

Life change and remodeling

Melissa, Liam and I are changing more than location.  I have had a career in Hospitality spanning 20+ years and so to buy a small cabin rental business and step out on our own was a big step of faith.

Part of the change will be living quarters, we are coming from a 3300 sq ft house on a lake in Bella Vista, AR. For the first year or two we will live in a 450 sq ft efficiency apartment that is attached to a garage/shop on the back of the property…. there is something about closeness and family that we know will be challenging but rewarding too.

We hope if everything is successful to build a cabin home for us but for now we have just finished remodeling our apartment and are about to move in.
