Your Backporch View of the Ozarks
Sky-Vue Cabins are open for business. Travel from all states is permitted except New Jersey and Connecticut and New York City and New Orleans. Since our property features individual cottages and cabins there is social distancing built in. We have suspended the breakfast service until such time as the spread of the virus has abated and as part of that are also honoring the 2019 rates which are approximately $10.00 per unit less than this year's published rate. We have always taken special care to clean and sanitize cabins after each stay. Most cabins have kitchens or kitchenettes so you can prepare your own meals.
We seem to still be having phone issues, mainly with ATT based phones, since the Memphis tornado disrupted fiber optic cables in early March. The message form on our website is working fine and we check email often. Please leave us specific instructions whether we should call or send an email reply.
Historic Sky-Vue Lodge is a family-friendly Bed and Breakfast with affordable rates, 15 mile back porch views, mouth-watering homemade breakfasts, and comfortable, modernized mountain cabins and well appointed lodge rooms.
The property sits near the top of Mt. Gayler in the Boston Mountains, part of the Arkansas Ozarks. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway with your spouse, an economical base for a family vacation, or a University of Arkansas football game weekend.
Sky-Vue is an inspiring location for office day retreats, regional business seminars, church retreats and family reunions. The Lodge is conveniently located halfway between Fort Smith and Fayetteville, Arkansas on beautiful Scenic Byway 71. We have modern amenities with yesteryear's feel.
Sky-Vue Lodge is just minutes from many attractions that the whole family will enjoy. Nearby are Devils Den and Lake Fort Smith State Parks, historic downtown Van Buren, breathtaking scenic drives, and the Arkansas and Missouri tourist train. Walk just across the street to Ozark Folkways for locally crafted art. Hike down and fish in one of our ponds, or just enjoy a good book on the covered back porch.
Whether you need the hustle and bustle of an activity filled vacation or a relaxing porch-swing get-away, Sky-Vue has it all. Come, sit, and enjoy your own....

Sky-Vue Lodge circa 1950
Perched atop Mount Gayler, high in the Ozark Mountains, historic Sky-Vue is a remodeled tourist court. Each cabin and lodge room is uniquely decorated, having modern amenities, and all the comforts of home. Every unit has its own coffee pot, refrigerator, cable TV, Wifi internet, heating, and air conditioning in season. All cottages, cabins, and lodge rooms have either a covered porch or a picture window with a nice view of the Boston Mountains. Several units also have fully equipped kitchens and fireplaces.
Enjoy the beautiful Boston Mountains in the Ozarks from your own back porch. Sky-Vue Lodge is located 4 miles south of Winslow, Arkansas on US Highway 71 and is just 25 minutes from either Fayetteville or Alma, Arkansas. While staying with us you are near 2 state parks, shopping, restaurants, Civil War battlefields, locally made crafts, and antique shops.
We have brochures of many activites in our area and can direct you to restaurants, shopping, flea markets, and activities for your family.
Sky-Vue operates as a bed and breakfast. All cabins, cottages, and lodge rooms include a full country breakfast from mid-March to about the middle of December and on weekends throughout the winter.
Our full country breakfast usually starts with fresh fruit in season and hot cereal with homemade granola when the mornings turn cooler. These are followed by platters heaping with fresh, hot pancakes with sausages, French toast and bacon, delectable egg casseroles and homemade cinnamon rolls, or many other things on a menu that is always changing. Of course, no breakfast would be complete without your choice of coffee, hot tea, or hot chocolate, and ice-cold juice.
The Main Lodge, seen here from Scenic Byway US 71, gives a new meaning to Mi casa es su casa. Our home really is yours too. You may stay in one of the cabins or lodge rooms but you will eat breakfast in our dining room; you read the paper and enjoy a pre-breakfast cup of coffee in our living room.
The Dining Room, is a spacious area with enough windows to imagine that you are dining outside. Watch the antics of the feisty hummingbirds or any of the many varieties of birds, native to the Ozarks, that feast at our feeders while you enjoy a hearty breakfast.
The Lodge is the main hub of activity much of the time. Come to the main office for ice or to check out movies, and games. Our courtesy phone is in the front hall of the office, and is available during office hours. (Usually 7:00am to 10:00pm.) The gift shop is located here as well. We have recently added a line of professional kitchen tools and gadgets to the giftshop. They are higher quality at a much lower cost than most catalog or specialty parties.
