My daughter, 2 grandchildren, and I rental a cabin for 3 days at the Folk Center. The cabin was more like a large motel room with 2 queen beds. I would have preferred a traditional cabin with a bed room, living room, and kitchen. Folk Center staff is VERY friendly and the place a neat and clean. I recommend asking... More

We stayed over the 4th of July and first of all let me say the one thing I never saw in ANY of the reviews about Mt. View is that it is a DRY county. Now I do not drink much but I do love a cold beer once in awhile and my wife likes a glass of wine. And... More

Wow, this place is awesome! We came for a 2 day Sacred Harp singing/lessons at the center and spent that time on the auditorium stage. We loved all the little shops and spent hours wandering around, talking to the artists and staying in awe of them all. It was blazing hot with high humidity but the shops were all cool... More

Good source for Ozark history and lifestyle. Usually has musicians on hand who play and sing old Ozark songs as well as other bluegrass music. Lots of craft demonstrations, plenty of opportunities to pick up unique gifts for folks back home or to fill in a Christmas list with something truly unique.

We stayed in the Cabins and we loved it and the pool. We went to the Ozark folk center and enjoyed the music, food, and shops. We saw the show and we enjoyed it too.
