A Special Place Somewhere in the Ozarks

Mirkwood Cabin

Mirkwood Cabin

This is a special place located in the Ozark Mountains.  Several guys went in together back in the 70s and purchased a piece of land located in the Ozark National Forest that had been designated as a wilderness area.  They spent years building this cabin using timbers from a cabin close to Siloam Springs, Arkansas.  The timbers date to around 1852.  While planning where to locate the cabin, they discovered footings for a previous cabin located exactly where they determined to place this cabin.  They also discovered a well located a few feet away from the kitchen area of the cabin.

The owners of this cabin are generous in providing hospitality to others.  Those who are guests see it as a  treasure and show respect for this special place.  There is no electricity or plumbing but there is a surplus of quiet and beauty.
