I took the scenic route (well, one of the many!) home from Fayetteville and stopped at this viewpoint and shop off of US 71. The view was absolutely lovely. A great spot for photos and very quiet and peaceful. There were some spots along the drive that I thought would probably have been even more beautiful, but they were obscured... More

I was driving from Fayetteville to Fort Smith and had to stop here when I saw the view. Great view of the mountains and lake far below. It must be incredible in the fall. Because it was early morning I was the only one in the little shop checking out the homemade jellies and things for sale. It just happened... More

I love rustic artist point, the loud mouth bird, the breathtaking view, the local folk art, homemade jams and preserves. The old Indian Museum is kinda interesting. Arkansas diamonds are priced right. The owner is down to earth and very hospitable. Artist Point and Sky Vue Lodge, near Mountainburg, Chester, Mount Gaylor, Winslow...Absolutely, gorgeous views, especially in the fall. So... More

The trail is currently closed due to someone uncovering a sweat bee nest. The shop owner said after the first frost it should be fine, but I would call first just to make sure! The shop was great but i'll update my rating after I visit the trail.

We enjoyed taking in the amazing view and picking up some snacks, listening and talking to the parrot, and purchasing beautiful souvenirs.

I love the homey ambience and the courteous service. The view out the back window over the valley is breathtaking, and it's just a place to stop a spell, rest, and stock up on jams and jellies.

A truly wonderful view. Right beside the highway. No walking required. Fall colors are breath taking.;No need to go to New England.

My last visit was more than 10 years ago. One of those locations I always wanted to stop at, but we never had the time. So, on my birthday I decided to drive the 2 hours to visit it. I was very dissapointed. It was too wet to hike down the trails, said the owners and the gift shop was... More
