About Us

A Bit of Our History

Wagon Wheel Resort has been a landmark on Lake Norfork for over 70 years.  Our seven up-to-date, clean, affordable cabins on an Arkansas Ozark Mountain bluff and a breathtaking Norfork Lake view! While maintaining the integrity of our deep-rooted domain our regularly renovated accommodations are clean, affordable, and quaint.

We are conveniently located on AR Highway 101 so you won’t have to drive your boat down a gravel road.  We are also a quick 7 miles outside of Mountain Home, where you can shopping, dining and and down home entertainment. At the Wagon Wheel, guests can relax, take in the beauty of nature, or read a book on a hammock.  Or our guest can enjoy some of our outdoor recreation activities, hike through nearby park trails or drive/walk down to the lake to play on our dock! 

Whether you are coming to relax or to be active, our up-to-date, clean, affordable cabins offer a comfortable retreat, while maintaining the integrity of our deep-rooted domain.  We’ll even throw in some Southern hospitality for you!

Your Hosts

Jenni and Jared relocated here from the Chicago suburbs in the Fall of 2013.  Jared had vacationed on the lake as a kid and wanted to utilize his property maintenance/construction background for self-employment.  One year after spontaneously taking over the Wagon Wheel, they welcomed a New Year’s day baby.  After that, they added a little handyman, completing the Wagon Wheel family. 

Jenni currently runs the resort and stays home with the kids, while Jared supplements as a home inspector and new construction manager. Both actively volunteer in surrounding community organizations. The freedom for the kids to play in nature and grow up developing a strong work ethic makes all of the hard work worth it!  And they sure can’t beat the view from their “office”.
