What Our Guests Are Saying

Shelly A (Nov 2019)


Quiet and Soothing

The home was exactly where we needed to be. Near the road but not a very busy one. The organization and labeling of the home's kitchen was outstanding. The decor and comfort of the home made you feel relaxed and the updates in the renovation were done well. Plenty of room to just walk around and enjoy the outside. With all this home offers all you need to do is show up with clothes.

Perfect Home Away From Home

Myra’s Mountain Retreat was exactly what our large family needed to enjoy the holidays! Plenty of room for everyone and wonderful amenities. The homes location is secluded enough to get away for some peace and quiet but local activities are still close enough to enjoy if you want to get out. The property managers were easily available. We look forward to visiting again in the future!

Will Stay Again

More Than Expected

The property sits on beautiful Magazine Mountain. The house is immaculate and the hosts absolutely thought of everything. We enjoyed our weekend celebrating our grandmother’s 100th birthday knowing we had a nice place to rest and recharge. Thank you!

Lesleigh S (Feb 2020)

We Very Much Enjoyed Our Stay and Plan to Stay Again Very Soon!!!

Overall the property and location were amazing and the price even better!!

Mt. Magazine Retreat

The renovations and amenities with this property are above expectations. The location to what we were looking for was perfect and views of Mt. Magazine are beautiful. The reception for AT&T service doesn’t exist at the house or in the surrounding area, but there is WiFi.

It Was Perfect for Us. We Appreciate Your Sharing Your Home With Us

It was very easy.

Harold W (May 2020)

Beautiful House Beautiful Scenery

A group of friends and family decided to get away for the Memorial Day weekend. We found this beautiful house on the side of Mount Magazine. Excellent location friendly folks around. All in all it was a great weekend. We'll be staying there again hopefully in the near future.

Will G (May 2020)

The House Was Great

The best vacation rental we have stayed at. I appreciated your thoroughness in the check-in book and the labels. I am an engineer as well, in the aerospace industry, and can relate.

Michelle K (May 2020)

Comfortable, Well Organized and Clean! Love it!

Wonderful place. Couldn’t have asked for better!

Jacob H (Jun 2020)

This Place is Fantastic!

Just wanted to say thank you again!

Lewis H (Jun 2020)

Quiet and Beautiful Area

Ample room and supplies for our family of seven. Nearby parks with trails and lake provide outdoor diversion. Chiggers and ticks a constant concern.

Relaxing Mountain View Getaway

Beautiful view of Magazine mountain, watching the different wildlife (deer, birds, & squirrels) in the yard, playing games & just relaxing in a beautiful country style ranch house...what more could a person ask for? My husband and I had the most enjoyable long weekend here. Definitely a awesome place to visit.

Thank You

Thank you for renting out Myra's to us. We had a fantastic time! It's an amazing place. Our family is already looking forward to coming again next year.

The House Is Just Perfect

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at your house, thank you so much!

Great Location: Spacious, Clean, Quiet, and Safe

The location of the house is about 1/2 way up Mt. Magazine. We enjoyed the location because we had easy access not only to Mt. Magazine State Park and Lodge, but also to Cove Lake where my husband and boys enjoyed kayaking and we all enjoyed mini golf.

The house was very spacious. The 4 bedrooms allowed my family to spread out, and also having 3 bathrooms was a big plus. My teenager son enjoyed having his own bedroom and bathroom in the basement. The living room seating was very comfortable, and we especially enjoyed the DVD collection of family movies. Every evening we watched a movie together.

The house was very clean, and especially well organized. All kitchen drawers are labeled for contents and anything you may need is available, even down to extra light bulbs. The AC was on and very cool when we arrived, and it worked great and never had to be adjusted.

The inside and outside of the house is very quiet and peaceful. There is a patio table and chairs out back and it was nice to sit out and enjoy the nature. We would see multiple deer daily.

We felt very safe in the area. The house was very private, and all local people we encountered were very friendly. My teenage son is a cross country runner and he enjoyed running every morning down the main road some and off side roads and he always felt safe.

The attention to details in the house and the instructions provided by the owner were top notch. Pictures and instructions on how to enter the house are provided as well as emergency phone numbers. The owner provided excellent communication and did everything possible to make our stay a great one.

A hidden gem we really enjoyed was that we were only a 5 min walk to the Cove Creek Supply Company. Not only could we get snacks there, but every morning we walked there and ordered breakfast to go.

They have the absolute best french toast and breakfast burritos.

Overall, I would highly recommend this property!

Was A Perfect Getaway

The property was exactly as described, was very clean and had everything we could've needed. The kitchen was stocked with spices and pots/pans and utensils. The bedrooms were spacious and beds are comfortable. We enjoyed sipping coffee outside in the gazebo. The house is located about a mile off of a nice lake and just a few miles from Mt. Magazine State Park. Again, thank you for hosting us. We recommend this place 100%!

Terry R

(Sept 2020)

Very Nice and Clean

Just as described. The only thing I would recommend is locks on basement doors going to garage

Shelley A

(Sept 2020)


Second time we have stayed here. Such a beautiful quiet place. Deer came into the yard again. House was well stocked and ready for us. Instructions were easily understandable and well organized. We will definitely continue to stay at this home away from home.

Becky K

(Sept 2020)

House Was Great

Loved our stay here. The house was exactly as described. Was nice to be able to park in the garage since weather was a little rainy. My daughter liked having her own space in the basement bedroom. Good location, close to state parks. Enjoyed seeing deer in the yard.

Anna G

(Oct 2020)


The pictures do not do the property justice. The house was absolutely perfect. It was spacious and had a kind of secluded feel with mountain views while being close enough to the amenities of the state park and a small little gas station. My favorite part was playing cards and dice games with the family at the spacious dining table. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was perfect. It had everything we could possibly need. The showers had amazing water pressure.

I loved everything about the property, including the occasional deer that would come up and graze while we were out on the porch sipping our coffee. The owners communicated well and answered any questions I had. (Which was a lot.)

I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Mount Magazine.

Amazing Place and Location

Excellent Place for Family

10 minutes drive from Mount Magazine, Very clean 10/10. Plenty of linens and towels. Kids had lot of fun watching movies and playing board games. Internet access (internet is bit slower). Lots of pots, pans and utensils for baking, cooking and grilling. Each drawer has labels which helped us lot to locate things easily. Jeff is an excellent host, helped us with all our questions and provided adequate information.

Wonderful Mountain Get Away

This was by far one of the best locations, cleanest, and most enjoyable property we have stayed thus far. The house is warm, inviting, and feels like a home versus just a house. It is very well maintained and absolutely clean. We look forward to returning next spring.

Weekend Get Away

Great place, super clean. Will stay again.

Thank You

Would like to start out by saying “Thank you” for letting us rent the Myra house. Home was everything we were hoping it would be. House was very clean and well maintained. We had 3 couples in the home and all of us where comfortable and happy with the accommodations. Being from the Malvern/Hot Springs area we don’t see very much snow but we were fortunate enough to have a little snow Saturday afternoon and early Sunday morning. We were also able to see wild turkeys come up into the backyard Sunday morning. We all agreed we would recommend the Myra Mountain Retreat to all and we’re hoping we can come back again.

Lots of Room

Nicest place to stay where you can ride to the trails. Extremely nice home! 4 bd 3 bath, lots of room!

Cheryl F

Spring 2021 Vacation

We enjoyed the property’s proximity to Cove Creek Supply to get fuel for our ATV’s and motorcycles. It is also only a short distance to Spring Lake road which we traveled on daily to get to trails. The house is well stocked and organized having labels on drawers and cabinets making the very nice gas range a game changer for evening meals. The property was well kept and 3 bathrooms made our stay less hectic. We look forward to future adventures based from this place.

Michael T

Thanks so Much For Letting Us Enjoy Your Home

Sam D

It Was Perfect!

We had the best time and loved Myra's Mountain Retreat! We loved how organized it was and the fact that you all had the small essentials that you typically need but forget. The kids enjoyed running and playing in the big backyard. The location also couldn't be more perfect. Easy access to Mount Magazine trails! We will definitely be back to stay again!

Aarthi R

Great Location

The property was great for my family and we were very comfortable. But the best part was the location and its proximity to so many family friendly trails! We will surely be back.

Great Spot Near Mt. Magazine

We chose this spot because we were looking for a great spot near the Mt. Magazine ATV trails. The place was great for our extended family. We enjoyed the large yard, house updates and the quiet location. Will rent here again.

Shelley A

Just Like Home

We have stayed here before and it has been perfect every time. Well stocked kitchen area, precise household instructions, extremely quiet and restful. Never a disappointment.

Patti T

Great location and equipped with everything you need

We will definitely be back! The view is spectacular, the location is perfect for trail riding in the National Forests and/or hiking at Mt Magazine, the home is updated and spotless, and the owners have thought of everything you might need. This is truly a hidden gem and I would highly recommend this property.

Amazing Getaway

We had such a great time getting away to the mountains and staying here for a couple of nights. The house was super clean and very well stocked. Great location for atv trails. No complaints. Plan to return in the future.

Great Getaway and Lake Nearby

Jeff was an awesome host; he had the AC fixed right away upon noticing it wasn’t working properly. He was easy to reach when needed, and a kind person overall! The home is exactly as described and very beautiful. The kitchen seems newly renovated, there are plenty of towels, supplies, and more than you would expect available for use (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, trash bags, three trash containers). The outdoor area is well kept and spacious. My only note is that shopping centers like TJ Maxx are an hour away, of course keeping in mind the location. Also, you can enjoy a dip in Cove Lake, which is very close by! Thanks for a great stay! We’ll remember this place in the future.

Fantastic Hideaway

The property was amazing. We saw deer everyday and had a visit from a fox. Very close to several different trails and the lake. Would definitely stay again. House was clean and had everything you could need for a getaway. Traffic was minimal. People were friendly.

Trail Rides

This house was like a home away from home. Very comfortable everything was easy to find. Very good location for trail riding and the general store people were so nice. We definitely enjoyed the stay.
