The Amish call themselves “plain people.” They live simply, preferring the rural, farming life to 21st Century technology. Living like people lived before the turn of the 20th Century may not be something you want to do permanently, but a simple, rustic vacation in an Amish-built log cabin can be appealing. Vacation rentals in Arkansas include cabins made of local cedar logs handcrafted by Amish craftsmen. You can also buy a log cabin built by Amish craftsmen and have it moved to your property almost anywhere in Arkansas.
Eagle's Rest Cabin
Jack and Camille Carpenter operate Eagle’s Rest on the Mountain five miles from the Buffalo National River in Arkansas. Eagle’s Nest Cabin is on a secluded part of the mountain, and the nearby river is ideal for canoeing, fishing and swimming. Hiking the Hemmed-in-Hollow Trail also provides spectacular views of the forested mountain. The cabin was built with the help of Amish craftsmen, who supplied logs worked at their mill. The cabin sleeps six to eight people and has a bathroom with tub and shower and a fully equipped kitchen. There is a full front porch with handcrafted rocking chairs and a bench.
