For thousands of years we have gathered fireside to tell stories, be more in tune to nature and reconnect with our hearts and loved ones.

Fireside Retreats are the perfect place to unplug and reconnect to what matters most.
Every retreat has a well stocked kitchen, ample wifi and cozy furnishings and all with a space to sit around the fire.

I love to host the adventurous couples, friends & families, the spirited solo traveler and those in need of a sanctuary for restorative and quality time away from the busyness of daily life.

hi! i'm emily...

Welcome to Fireside Retreats!  


I was first drawn to the area as trail runner and quickly fell in love with the limestone bluffs, the cold clear waters of Sylamore Creek and the quaint charm and friendly vibe of Mountain View, Arkansas. The Ozarks felt like home from the very beginning.

My first cabin, The Studio, was originally an escape from the city for my kids and myself, but soon became a springboard for combining my passions for design and hospitality.  Years later, I’ve launched Fireside Retreats with 16 properties ranging from a tiny cottage for two to a converted school bus to a creekside cabin large enough for a family getaway. 

I’ve chosen and designed each property with coziness and guest experience in mind. My mission is to provide both spaces and amenities that are sure to make your trip memorable and relaxing.

As a guest, I hope you feel the warmth of Ozark hospitality and make lasting memories.


Whether you want to take in all that Mountain View has to offer or you stay snuggled in your cabin with your favorite book, there’s a place that’s just right for you at Fireside Retreats.

My hope is that you’ll feel at home here just like I did.
