NEWTON COUNTY, Ark.- Just North of the Ozark national forest in rural Newton county, is a road that leads to one unique spot in our state.
A place that is both natural and constructed, a grotto of elegance.
“Welcome inside the Beckham Creek cave, I bet this isn’t what you expected, 6,000 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, a gourmet kitchen, a bar, a sound system, this place is unbelievable and did we mention it’s a live breathing active cave, but this is the showcase, it’s one of the only places in the world you can find a Spanish piano.”
At every turn you’ll find formations, cave growth that can’t be stopped.
“Nature has a way of taking over, that’s right. We have done what we can to keep it dry, but it’s going to come through anyway.”
The water you see is the water you get, whether it is used for drinking, cooking or taking a shower.
“We have a creek that originates deep within the cave and we use that filtered water to supply water.”
However the excess water makes a mark like no other.
“And the rest of it flows under the floor and out the front of the cave and creates a waterfall outside.”
This extraordinary place is not a private residence. You and your family can reserve and rent this cave for a getaway like none other
“It’s very secluded, it’s very private, this is where you can come to relax and you don’t have to worry about neighbors or anything else, you can enjoy nature for what it is.”
With your reservation, comes all the outdoor you can handle.
“And you get the 280 acres all to yourself.”
One night in the cave with all its amenities tags out at 1600 dollars a night
“You are coming here to relax, and enjoy a once in a lifetime experience.”
An elegant night with nature , pricey or not. It’s one you’ll never forget
