Set in the gorgeous Ozarks, in the incomparable Buffalo River Valley, Beckham Cave Lodge offers a truly unique experience. Newly remodeled, the cave lodge has maintained the breathtaking natural formations that make it so exceptional.

It’s right here in Arkansas, near the small community of Parthenon.
Way before David Beckham kicked a football Beckham Creek was hanging around being beautiful and waiting to be discovered. Now a 280 acre estate, the centerpiece is the amazing cave lodge. It took four years to build with the outside façade full of windows to let light into the cave. Check out these photos… isn’t it amazing how they have created a luxurious living space inside a cave? And they have done all this without taking away the rock walls or natural waterfalls. Set in the magnificent Buffalo River Valley there are plenty of activities to enjoy. The main one here is obvious. Can you guess what it is? Yes, it’s caving or “spelunking” as it is sometimes known. The cave system runs into the earth revealing a mysterious world of underground lakes and natural caverns ready to be explored. You can also go rock climbing, take a nature trail and go horse riding. There is a large games room for socializing and a modern kitchen.
Located in Parthenon, Arkansas, this Flintstones-style home is built into a cave, and has been purposely renovated in a way to keep the features of the cave and its authenticity.
It’s been converted into a lodge so you can stay in the lodge for around US$1,200 a night out of season, but in peak holiday seasons prices pump up to around $2,000.

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
