Beautiful Views!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is close to the Buffalo River and a short drive to a great swimming hole. Lots of birds, flowers and amazing views. My daughter spotted a small shy black bear on the property! What more could you ask for. We will definitely stay again.

Great Family get-away

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cabin. The views are incredible, and it was a relaxing get-away to enjoy nature while still having everything we needed. Close to the Buffalo River and some gorgeous hiking, cliff jumping, swimming and canoeing or kayaking. We'll be back again soon!

Amazing view, perfectly priced, plenty of space and an accommodating owner

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning of the trip planning, Ken, the owner, was very prompt in answering my questions. The cabin was just as we expected and more.

The back deck has a view that should not be missed! Our children spent many a night laying on the benches listening to music and counting shooting stars.

The cabin has a historical story that we all enjoyed learning about (see info book at the cabin). Evenings are quiet because the cabin sits off the road. The access to swimming areas and stores is perfect.

The kitchen was stocked with all the expected appliances and in great working order. If you will be cooking a lot, consider taking LARGE skillets or pans. The cabin offers plenty of dishes, bowls, glasses, mugs, basic condiments, coffee filters and two coffee makers but only has a few small frying pans. We made due though and loved cooking for our family.

The two bedrooms are spacious and the queen beds are nice but a little softer than my husband and I personally prefer. Pillows were fluffy and plentiful as were blankets (if needed).

The two bathrooms offered plenty of hot water. Towels were replinished and we always had what we needed.

Our children were on an "electronic detox" for the duration of our trip so we had big fun choosing what to play each night from the large game library. The long clothesline, grills and firepit ( plenty of wood just let Ken know you need some) were all nice extras that we fully enjoyed.

This property is perfect for those that like easy access to activities, like rustic/traditional log cabins, love a million dollar view and like spending together-time with loved ones. Truly a wonderful value!

Thank you for sharing your home with our family!
