Allen Cabin Petit Jean Mountain Arkansas

Vacation Home Perched on top of Petit Jean Mountain – Allen Cabin

You are going to love this one! We all know that Petit Jean Mountain is a popular vacation spot for many of us. In fact, about 800,000 people visit this state park each year. That means that there are many people looking for lodging on the mountain every year.

I have stayed everywhere on Petit Jean. I have camped, stayed in a YURT, enjoyed the lodge, rented a state park cabin and even stayed in private rentals. One of my favorites is the Allen Cabin.

Today, I’m going to tell you everything you need to know about the Allen Cabin!

About the Allen Cabin

This beautiful cabin on top of Petit Jean Mountain is owned by Ray and Kathy Allen. This is their family vacation home which they also rent out and share with all of us!

During our visit, we had the privilege of visiting with Ray. He is a wonderful person who truly loves this mountain.

Watching the slow designs the farm equipment makes as fields are cut on the farmlands below us and listening to the far off calls of cattle lowing in the evening are mesmerizing and relaxing. We’ve seen lightning strike the ground over 60 miles away. Storm cells moving across the valley any time of day or night are captivating, and watching the occasional crop duster work the fields below is a real treat.

What I Love About the Allen Cabin

If you’ve been following along on my Facebook page or my YouTube, then you know I travel a lot. I travel all around the state with my husband and 3 children and we are usually on the road for weeks at a time.

We camp a lot in our 14 ft. cargo trailer conversion, but we also stay in hotels and in private rentals like this one.

We have literally done it all.

One of my biggest frustrations is when the accommodations really only have room for 4 people. Sometimes there is only seating for 4 at the dinner table or comfortable sleeping for 4 and we are a family of 5.

The Allen Cabin is not that way. There is room for everyone here plus extras. You can bring your extended family too!

We were there during December and it was so cozy!

Plus, the upper and lower porches run the full length of the cabin so there is room for everyone out there too!

You really can’t go wrong with this cabin.

How to Rent the Allen Cabin

The Allens do not have their cabin listed on VRBO or any other site like that. However, they do have a website or you can just call Ray to book! All the info you need is right here.

This is the second bedroom and it sleeps 6!
