Modern Mountain Retreat… Cairn Creek

Modern Mountain Retreat

It’s official! We’ve taken the first steps in creating our modern mountain retreat, Cairn Creek. Soon, you’ll find us nestled on 60 acres of pine and hardwood forest in the Ouachita Mountains of Southwest Arkansas near Caddo Gap, Arkansas!

Cairn Creek is centrally located for easy access to popular destinations. A short drive to Hot Springs finds shopping, restaurants, nightlife, and the healing waters of the natural hot spring baths and spas.

Lake Ouachita, AR

The area offers popular lakes known for spectacular fishing and water sports. Lakes Ouachita, Greeson, Hamilton, and Catherine are all nearby.

Access to the Ouachita National Forest is literally across the road! And, a short drive to Little Missouri Falls Recreation Area offers a great place for a picnic, hiking, and viewing the waterfalls.

Yoga on the river

If kayaking, canoeing, or floating the Caddo River is your thing we’ve got you covered. We’re just up the road from two exceptional operations that offer full equipment and convenient access to the river.

Cairn Creek Modern Mountain Lodge and Cabin

The lodge and cabin at Cairn Creek will offer modern mountain style, great food and service, and a helpful guide to the area. Whether sightseeing or relaxing at the lodge, you are sure to enjoy all the beauty and recreation the Ouachita Region has to offer.
