Located in the Arkansas Ozarks, the Beckham Creek Cave House offers visitors the opportunity to come and stay in a unique dwelling inside a natural cavern. The home is roughly 12 miles from the Buffalo National River and is the perfect getaway for those who enjoy adventuring in style.
The one-of-a-kind cave house has four bedrooms and four bathrooms inside a nearly 6000 square feet living area. The property also has an indoor waterfall that comes from an “under the floor spring originating from deep within the heart of the cave.” The house also features its own geothermal heating system and cathedral ceilings.
Guests can cook up a storm with the state-of-the-art kitchen, and a large wooden bar offers a perfect spot to share a meal. The kitchen also features marble countertops and modern-day appliances, including a dishwasher, dryer, and washer. The TV in the living room is mounted on the cavern’s walls and is the perfect spot for a movie night.
The bedrooms feature queen-sized beds with oversized bathrooms. Rain showers in the bathrooms offer a unique experience for guests while staying in the cave house. While enjoying the natural craggy rock features within the house, guests can also venture outside to more amenities.
There is a barn with an apartment above a horse stable. A helicopter landing offers an extra luxury amenity. The property spans roughly 260 acres, with the addition of a spring-fed lake where guests can fish or paddle. There are over 30 caves on the property, creeks, natural works, and wildlife like bears, turkeys, and deer.
The retreat is perfect for any nature lover, with the cave house nestled deep in the Ozarks. Guests can enjoy the stunning nature from the cave house thanks to the covered porch and patio.
The cave house was listed for sale in 2018 for $2.75 million. The rocky living cave was originally built as a bomb shelter in the 1980s when the threat of nuclear war with the Soviet Union was a concern.
John Hay bought the property in the 80s. He is the co-founder of Celestial Tea and spent $2 million over four years converting the structure into a bomb shelter just in case things got “hot.”
He converted the cave into a perfect hideaway featuring all the comforts of home. Once the war was over, Hay sold the property to the next owner, who renovated the space into a luxury hotel in 2014.
Rates for the night is now set at $1600/per night, with a complementary UTV tour of the property. A picnic spot with hammocks for relaxing and a deck area with incredible views are available during guests’ stay.
There is also a Frisbee Golf course, Horseshoe Pit, and Cornhole game for guests to use while on the property. The house has undergone several remodels throughout the years, offering guests the most authentic stay in the cave house.
