About Our Resort

Wagon Wheel Resort has been a landmark on Lake Norfork for over 70 years, evolving from Winns’ Lodge and Cabins to its’ current name and reputation. All seven of our regularly renovated cabins offer a modern cabin retreat while maintaining the integrity of our deep-rooted domain.  Our resort sits on a bluff overlooking the lake, surrounded by Arkansas Ozark Mountain Region forest and offers one of the most beautiful scenes in the area. We also provide a small office where you can purchase ice, frozen items, cold beverages, souvenirs, and other grocery and toiletry items to accommodate your last minute needs.

We sit right on AR Highway 101 so you can avoid driving your boat down gravel roads or take advantage of the quick 7 mile access into Mountain Home, Arkansas, for shopping, dining, and down home entertainment. At the Wagon Wheel, guests can take in the beauty of our property by relaxing on a hammock and enjoying nature; playing some of our outdoor recreation games including volleyball, basketball, horseshoes, or bean bag toss; hike through nearby park trails or drive down to play on our private fishing and swimming dock!  

Whether you are coming to relax or to be active, our four and a half acres of wooded, lakefront land and clean, accommodating cabins are sure to suit your needs!  Your hosts, Jared and Jenni, hope to have you

About Your Hosts

Jenni and Jared relocated here from the Chicago suburbs in the Fall of 2013. Jared had vacationed on the lake as a child and wanted to make self-employable use of his construction and rental property maintenance background, as well as get away from the big city hustle and bustle. About a year after taking the leap, they welcomed their New Year’s baby girl and a few year’s later, a little handyman. Jenni currently runs the resort and stays home with the kids, while Jared supplements as a home inspector and local handyman. Both are active in the community, as Jared volunteers on the fire department and Jenni volunteers on the fireworks association and lake chamber’s board of directors. The freedom for the kids to play in nature; the potential to grow up developing a strong work ethic; the comfort of this tight knit community and the beauty of this part of God’s country has made living this life-style an enjoyable experience…and a lot of work!
