    This is a beautiful cabin set on a large creek. We enjoyed the use of the kayaks provided with the rental. The cabin was spacious and very clean. We will come again.

    Loved this cabin, recently renovated and they couldn't have done a better job! Felt just like I was staying at an old friends house.

    We had a wonderful time! Jane's Bend Cabin is awesome. We wanted a place to unwine and reboot. We went onto town and shopped, we had a wonderful meal at the Rainbow Cafe. The 2nd day we ate at the Italian restaurant, it was awesome also. We would grab something for supper and go back to the cabin. We loved to set on the deck. Our son plays the American Native Flute, the sound of the running creek and the birds just added to the beautiful sound. My husban waded in the creek, I almost got a picture of him falling in the creek. LOL

    Jane's Bend at Sylamore Creek turned out to be THE BEST choice for a weekend away with grandparents to celebrate our youngest daughter's birthday. At first, we thought that we really wanted to be on the river, but are so happy that our daughter chose Jane's Bend. The cabin is large and has a great layout -- master bedroom on the main floor with an ensuite bathroom. There is another large bathroom on the main level with accessible features. Two large bedrooms upstairs and another full bath were icing on the cake. Jane's Bend is warm and inviting, and a lot of thought was put into furnishings, décor and amenities. We brought board games - didn't need them, the cabin is stocked with games and great books to enjoy while taking in the beauty of creek from the large deck. The creek side location was perfect, my family was able to fish and kayak just steps from the cabin -- and yes, kayaks are one of the many amenities. This was the first time with have traveled with both grandparents, and Jane's Bend did an amazing job with the accessibility factors - there are multiple stairs to the cabin as well as a ramp -- they also made access to the lower level fire pit easy for our parents with an adorable bridge. Large kitchen and outdoor spaces made for fun dinners. Our party of eight enjoyed meals on the and s'mores around the fire pit. Emily and Virginia were prompt, thorough, and thoughtful with all correspondence -- we so appreciated that, as well as the calendar of 'weekend happenings' in the Mountain View area. There are times when photos are deceiving, and you arrive at a rental feeling let down -- the photos of Jane's Bend are beautiful, but when you arrive, you realize that it is impossible for the photos to fully capture everything that this cabin has to offer -- we WILL be back!!

    We had a fabulous time at Jane's Bend. Plenty of space for the 8 of us. We really enjoyed the direct creek access, the amazing kitchen, and the firepit. We can't wait to come back!
  6. 5/5
    Jane's Bend is a great place and we had a wonderful time. Beautiful view and creek location with complementary kayaks made this a wonderful trip. The clear, spring fed creek is a great way to relax and cool off during a summer stay. Virginia and Emily were great as always in providing quality support and communication. We will be back soon.

    We loved staying at Jane's Bend. Everything was very clean and it was an overall great place.
  8. 5/5
    I highly recommend renting from Ivy Vacations. Our vacation spent at the Jane’s Bend Cabin was AMAZING!! These ladies have thought of everything. From the kayaks to the firewood and so much more. The private creek access is perfect, along w/ the deck overlooking the creek. This place left a lasting impression on our whole family. If your are looking for the perfect family vacation rental, this is it!! Thanks so much Ivy Vacations!!

    Our family vacation couldn’t have been any more enjoyable. The cabin was perfect for the ten of us. My three grandchildren 13, 9 and 5 had a blast in the gorgeous rock creek that ran threw the back yard. We all had a blast with the kayaks. It was a stunning place to stay!!! Close enough to town but a truly hidden gem! We certainly plan to return and share with friends and family that have asked about our photos! I’d suggest strongly going thru Ivy Vacations, it saved us a good bit of money by doing so.

    Our family if 12 ranging from grandparents to babies had a wonderful experience at Jane’s! The cabin and location were perfect!

  12. 5/5
    Loved everything about this place! The house was amazing. The creek was so much fun. We enjoyed every second and everything was perfect! Thanks for hosting such a fun little family getaway!
  13. 5/5
    This was the perfect cabin for our girls weekend. The kayaks were the perfect extra. The cozy feel and large deck overlooking the creek was great. The location is perfect - a quiet valley, yet close to all kinds of activities. We will be back.
  14. 5/5
    We enjoyed an excellent stay at this cabin for 5 days. It is very comfortably decorated, spacious and perfectly located. The kayaks were a great bonus that we all thoroughly enjoyed. The beautiful trees surrounding the cabin give it a “treehouse” feel. The valley across the creek and mountains beyond are a beautiful backdrop. We made several trips to Blanchard Springs Park for hiking, swimming and a breathtaking cave tour. We also shared an amazing experience as a family at Loco Ropes. We look forward to staying here again!!

    The cabin is clean and modern. Great location on Sylamore, yet convenient to town.

    Our stay couldn't have been any better. This is our second time to stay in one of Emily's rentals (Ivy vacation rentals), so we were not surprised. The home was spotless first of all. Emily has great taste. The home is beautifully decorated & had all high end appliances. The beds are great, the mattresses are super comfortable. The only reason you will want to get out of them is because of the view! It is beautiful! My husband & I love this area, but we go mainly just to chill, because we have a little dachshund that doesn't let us do much. We spent most of our time on the huge deck that was soo lovely! One of the reasons for renting this house was for the creek access, & the kayaks were an extra bonus, YEA! That was a lot of fun & so pretty. So Emily, once again, we thank you. It's a long way for us to go to mostly just chill, but oh so worth it. We had a great time! One more thing, we loved that grill, real nice, but we couldn't find the spatula? Sincerely, Mike & Joy

    I rented this house along with Jack's Bend at the same time for my bachelor party (I say "party" but in reality is was more like a short vacation with a bunch of friends). This was my first AirBnB experience, and it was excellent. Absolutely no complaints or problems. Emily and Virginia where very fast communicators, very friendly, and very accommodating. The house was really clean and really stylish and it was clear that much work had been done to make the whole place very nice. It was impressive. My mattress was high quality, the sheets and towels and everything was perfect, the air conditioning worked flawlessly, the kitchen appliances were all brand new, the decor was really neat - like I said it was just very impressive. Nothing was low quality. Outside the house was even better though. The new deck and stairs were awesome and well built. But nothing man made can beat the beauty of nature - and that was proved by the Sylamore Creek that ran behind the property. The water was so refreshing! It was so clear and nice and cold in late August, and there was fish, mostly trout I think, everywhere. I saw a few big ones but we only managed to catch small ones. We also kayaked and canoed up and down the stream, and it was amazing. That was my favorite part of the trip! This place was the perfect Ozarks hideout! It was tucked deep into the forest far away from the bright lights (you can see the milky way with the naked eye!) and busy streets, yet the house has everything you need to live comfortably just like your in a big city hotel or something. The best of both worlds. I'm thinking about coming back here soon!

    I cannot say enough good things about this cabin and Ivy Vacations in general. This is my second stay with them and the first in this cabin. The balcony overlooking the creek may have been my favorite part. It's perfect for morning coffee. We had the use of kayaks for our stay as well and really enjoyed being able to paddle around that area. It really made the weekend special to have that option. I would highly recommend this cabin or let Virginia and Emily suggest the perfect cabin for your trip. They never steer me wrong! The kitchen is well stocked in this cabin as well, definitely more so than in any rental I've had with any company. Looking forward to coming back soon!

    Another great visit at Jane’s Bend! Such a beautiful setting and a roomy and charming house with everything you need. We heard some music at the Craft Village,walked to the double bridge daily, enjoyed the lovely patio, and cooled off in the creek by the house. Virginia, Emily and Dawnette are so accommodating and responsive. Thanks so much!

    This was our 5th year to visit the Mountain View area for the Sylamore 50k trail run. Jane's Bend was the nicest cabin in which we've stayed. It looks rustic from the outside but is fully updated inside with cute farmhouse decor. It easily sleeps 10. The view of the creek is outstanding- just feet from the cabin! We loved the deck and would have built a fire in the firepit had the weather cooperated! We'd also like to come back when we can use the kayaks. We had a "beeping" smoke detector the first night, and management sent someone to replace the battery the next morning. Thanks for a great stay in a beautiful location!
  22. 5/5
    Jane's bend is a lovely well appointed cabin in a beautiful scenic location.
  23. 5/5
    We were in aww of just how perfect our cabin/home was for us. It was very clean and nicely decorated. The creek and kayaks were perfect for our children ages 8-13 years old. They had a blast playing by the creek and fishing. We had plenty of beds and bathrooms for all of us. Very close to Mountain View and Blanchard Springs Caverns. We will most definitely be back as we were very sad to leave. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
  24. 5/5
    Wonderful vacation cabin and had everything we needed. Also loved the creek! Plan to go again soon.

    Clean. Spacious. Newly renovated.
  26. 5/5
    This was a great cabin nicely decorated with plenty of room . I would recommend this to anyone for a weekend getaway.
  27. 5/5
    We loved the house and property! We were down playing in the creek everyday. House is secluded but still close to town. We had a wonderfully relaxing trip and would go back again!
  28. 5/5
    Our family enjoyed our stay at Jane’s Bend. From the kayak trips down the creek, to fireside chats every night, it made our family vacation perfect! We had everything we needed to show up and relax together. The grounds are gorgeous and so well kept! The beautiful rosebushes and flowers made me not want to leave! My kids so enjoyed the swingset near the cabin as well. This will definitely be one to come to again and again for us!
  29. 5/5
    Great family friendly cabin. Perfect location and super clean!
  30. 5/5
    Had a great stay at Jane's Bend. The house is even nicer than the pictures. Great attention to detail. Perfect location: 10 mins to downtown Mtn View, 15 mins to Blanchard Springs State Park, and a short 30 min drive to Gravity BrewWorks in Big Flat (beautiful little brewery making excellent beers).
  31. 5/5
    We had a wonderful stay at the larger of the Jane and Jack cabins (And had family stay in the little cabin—perfect place for grandparents!). The cabin had everything we needed—plenty of linens and a fully equipped kitchen. The property is just beautiful and the cabin exceeded our expectations. The owners always responded promptly and helpfully. We enjoyed the creek, the fire pit, and a couple of jaunts to town. We plan to return!
  32. 5/5
    This was by far the best place we've stayed on vacation. They thought of everything... a fire starter, kayaks, starter soap and laundry soap.the view is amazing and those kayaks were the icing on the cake... to be able to kayak down stream and see the beautiful views! Theres a fire pit perfect for s'mores. And the back porch is fenced in so no worries of your pet slipping out without your knowledge. Town is just about 8 miles away so if you forget something now worries.
  33. 5/5
    We recently stayed at this cabin last weekend. It was perfect! We took our three little grandsons and their parents. Everyone enjoyed it so much, we didn't want to leave. The cabin pictures online are good, but nothing compares to what the place looks like in person. It was very clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. A big plus of this cabin is that you have your own creek access and kayaks to use on site. We are already planning our next get away to Mountain View and will most definitely be booking the same cabin. The owners are quick to respond to your messages and are ready to help with anything needed. Loved it!
  34. 5/5
    This cabin was wonderful. It had plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy our long weekend. Plenty of beds and bathrooms. The deck was great and we spent a lot of time out there. The creek is right there and easy to get to. There are kayaks and large tubes to float on the creek. It is well maintained and very clean. Everyone is ready to come back again.
  35. 5/5
    Thank you for a wonderful stay on the Sylamore Creek. We utilized all the amenities this river cabin offered, from the kayaks and innertubes, to playing baggo and ping pong on the ground level. We cooked great meals in the spacious kitchen and enjoyed them on the patio. We will be returning! Please note-- I accidentally gave Jane's Bend a 1 Star rating on their VRBO listing-- this was MY MISTAKE!! They deserve 5 stars without a doubt.

    2nd year with Ivy Vacations and 1st year at Janes Bend. We also rented the Jacks next door. I’m not sure I want to tell of my family’s wonderful time that we had. We would love to keep this place all to ourself if we could. We could not come up with a consensus of what was the best part. The kayaking at early morning was a 10. Being able to swim in clear, chest deep water or wade in the knee deep rapids was a blast. 2 guys that fished caught over 30 fish each of the two mornings they fished. My 11y/o and I flipped rocks in the rapids and caught a bunch of crawfish each day. The balance of sunshine and cool/cold water allowed us to swim anytime of day, which we did. The girls floated on tubes and floats for hours as they talked away. The house sits right above the water with porches and decks that allowed for easy access. We saw otters each morning from the deck. We had a turtle lay eggs on a sandbar. We saw deer every morning on our hike up the “hill”. We grilled on the upper deck every evening with the very nice gas grill. I think the only consensus we arrived at was that the 5 days went so fast that it really only felt like 2 days. We crammed so many things and so much fun into the mornings, days and evenings that we went to bed exhausted every night. We need to go back to work to recover from all the fun we had.
  37. 5/5
    Fantastic paddling and fishing right outside the door. Peaceful location only minutes from Mountain View and the trout-filled White River. Superbly decorated, no hokey "cabin" décor. Well-equipped, spacious kitchen. We were a party of six adults and never needed to elbow a body out of the way. Already planning our encore trip, we will stay longer next time. This is a place you kinda hate to tell others about because you are greedy, but must tell others because it is so unbelievably perfect.
  38. 5/5
    This is a wonderful place to stay, right on the creek, which is a requirement for our family! I love how easy it is to communicate with the owners. We will definitely stay in this cabin again.
  39. 5/5
    We had a wonderful time at Jane's Bend! The house was perfect for us and the kids (and adults too) loved the creek and kayaks. It was so quiet and peaceful, yet just minutes away from Blanchard Springs, Ozark Folk Center and the town square. Already planning our next trip! The Mayeaux family

    We took our second trip to Mountainview and this time stayed in Jane's Bend on Sylamore Creek and it was excellent!!! Best vacation we've ever had. Ping pong table was so much fun and we took the kayaks out and explored the creek! This will be our go to cabin for our annual trip from here on out!! So clean and stocked with everything you need to cook meals right in the cabin! We love Mountainview so much we've decided to move there when we retire!! I would highly recommend this cabin and one of the best features is they allow pets and our lab enjoys the vacation just as much or more than we do. All the pets in the area are very friendly as well!

    Fabulous getaway!
  42. 5/5
    Our stay at Jane's Bend at Sylamore Creek included my daughter, her two sons ages 17 and 20, and me. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all three generations of us. The creek is wonderful for wading, enjoying nature, and daydreaming. The kayaks are a real plus. The house was clean, attractive, and comfortable. My only suggestion would be to make the steps down the hill to the creek a little easier to navigate for us old folks. Each of the log risers is very high. I will recommend Jane's to others and hope to return.
  43. 5/5
    My family did a spontaneous get away and found Jane's Bend through another site and after having difficulty I actually decided to go directly through Ivy Vacations and I am so glad I did. Virginia helped me get everything set up within minutes and Dawnette called me the morning of to make sure I had all the info needed and answered all questions I had. The staff were amazing but the property... the property was all that we wanted and so much more! We went kayaking with the kayaks on site during the day and sat around the fire pit each evening. They supplied everything we would need minus of course food but everything else was there. They have a fully stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, board games for the family, tons of books, extra pillows and blankets, kayaks and tubes for the creek and so much more! We didn't have any cell service but with everything this place had to offer it didn't matter. There's a phone there if needed and the wifi was great! I have a preteen and another technology addict thats 9 and they didn't care about not having their phones/devices. So if you're looking for some down time, this is the place for you and your family to get away and enjoy nature and spend time together!!

    This was our third visit to Jane's Bend cabin (plus one to Jack's Bend) and it was as wonderful as our previous visits. This time we experienced fall there, kept a fire going in the cabin, had a really nice fire pit outside, and did a little fishing in the creek. Sitting on the deck and looking at and listening to Sylamore Creek is so relaxing and enjoyable. We took long walks past the Double Bridge and enjoyed the scenery and people we met. The cabin is decorated and maintained so well, very clean, comfortable and has so many nice features. The whole Ivy Vacation team is the best! They are very responsive and eager to make your stay perfect. We are already planning our return trip. Our group also rented Jack's Bend and the experience was a great as Jane's Bend. We love Jane's and Jack's Bend. What an incredible location and experience. You will love it, too! Many thanks to the folks at Ivy Vacations!

    My wife and I were spending a get away weekend with 2 other couples. The home has all of the necessities and many of the nice to have extras. We also throughly enjoyed our visit to Mountain View which was only a short distance away.
