Bring the family and stay at Heart of the Buffalo - Cabin! Sits on 4 acres in the heart of the Buffalo River. We are located in the middle section of the river, with the cabin joining the Buffalo National River. You will have your own private access to park land for horse back riding or hiking! The Buffalo River Trail is approximately 200 yards from the cabin! You will also be centrally located between 3 canoe rentals, with each one only being a few minutes away. Approx 3 mins to Grinders Ferry.
This 1,228 sq ft cabin is nestled in the Ozark Mountains with complete privacy. It is reached by a private drive that winds up a hill, but no 4 wheel drive is necessary. Inside the cabin, you will find all the luxuries of home. It is an open floor plan with vaulted ceilings over the great room. There are 2 separate bedrooms downstairs, with a king bed and a queen bed. There is also a laundry room with washer and dryer available for your use. There is 1 full bathroom in the house, complete with a tankless water heater, so you never have to worry about cold showers! An open loft sits over the bedrooms with 2 twin XL beds. We have also provided a bbq grill and fire pit outside for your convenience. In addition, there is also a private outdoor shower behind the cabin, with hot and cold water, to rinse off.
You will be centered between the 3 main canoe rentals in the middle section of the river: Buffalo Camping and Canoeing, Buffalo River Outfitters, and Silver Hill Canoe rental. The closest river access is approximately 3 minutes away at Grinders Ferry/Hwy 65 bridge. You will also be just minutes away from Tyler Bend or Gilbert access points. If you want a good swimming hole, Shine Eye is also close by!
If you are interested in hiking or horseback riding, the longest trail on the river, Buffalo River Trail, runs within walking distance from the cabin. We have a round pen with panels set up for horses. You can bring your horses and ride from the cabin! No trailering! You can venture up river towards Woolum, or you can venture down river towards Gilbert and back.
