My husband and I and our 7 year-old granddaughter just returned from a nice visit to Mountain View, AR. We stayed at the Dry Creek Lodge in the Ozark Folk Center State Park for 2 nights. The Lodge was located just outside Mountain View and should be considered the top pick of accommadations in this small town. The rooms are in pods of two instead of your usual motel, and is set among the forest in a very quiet location. The rooms, although not especially large, were comfortable, and very clean. The bathrooms had recently been remodled and also spotless. We hiked the easy trails in the cool mornings and had coffee and drinks outside our room on the concrete pads that were furnished with chairs and table. We even trekked to the on-site restaurant for a good (and cheap breakfast!) The pool is large and clean.
The next day, we visited the Ozark Folk Center, and my granddaughter loved it! We visited on a Wed. and it was not crowded. The people there were absolutely lovely to my granddaughter and we had a wonderful time!
