A Secluded & Rustic Ozarks Getaway on Upper Buffalo River

Resting on its own 120 acres of beautiful forests atop the Upper Buffalo River, awaits a breathtaking mountain retreat that cannot be matched.

The lodge features seven bedrooms, five bathrooms, a living area with loft and a game room. A cozy wrap-around porch completes this getaway, offering you ample space both indoors and out to relax and soak up the views. Enjoy a quiet morning with a cup of coffee as you view the wildlife right from the lodge before you head out to explore the area yourself. A variety of hiking trails are just minutes away, and one even takes you to the waterfall behind the lodge. A stocked pond onsite is teeming with bass, catfish, crappie and bream, where you can cast your line for a calm afternoon of fishing. Or, for a little more adventure, canoe the Buffalo River! No matter how you decide to spend your time, one thing is ultimately clear: this is an Arkansas vacation you will never forget!
