The Buffalo National River is home to the finest scenery in Arkansas, which makes it an excellent destination for couples desiring a romantic escape with inspiring surroundings.
And while our name may not sound romantic, we're actually Arkansas' most popular wilderness resort for romantic cabin getaways with secluded cabins designed exclusively for two, as well as hot tub cabins overlooking 30 miles of Buffalo River country.
While all of our handcrafted cabins for two offer escape and seclusion, Cabin X takes romance to a new level. This is the cabin you want for a special occasion, such as a honeymoon or anniversary. It's super private, mountain-top location affords you plenty of alone time with only a commanding 30-mile view of the upper Buffalo National River wilderness for company.
Couples' cabins book quickly, so be sure that if you have specific dates or a certain cabin in mind, the sooner you make a reservation the better. A $25 initial payment reserves your cabin, along with a valid Visa, MasterCard or Discover Card. So, unlike what other cabin rental places typically require, at BOC you don't have to make a sizeable advance payment months or weeks in advance of arrival.
Want to swing like Tarzan and Jane while you're here? Our Buffalo River Canopy Tour zip line will have him reaching for his leopard tunic and pounding his chest with its thriling tree-to-tree action! Not to be outdone, ladies love our zip line perhaps even more than men, as it's an outdoor activity that's easy, yet great fun for even the most feminine adventuress!
The Ponca area is home to Arkansas' most beautiful hiking trails. Our staff is well-versed in trailhead locations and suggestions for finding everything from waterfalls to wildflowers to wildlife. Speaking of which, be sure to tour the Boxley Valley area each morning and evening in search of our majestic Rocky Mountain Elk herd.
Visiting us in spring or early summer? Then a float trip on the beautiful Buffalo National River is in order for a day of leisurely fun on and in the water, plus, the chance to relax on a sunny gravel bar for a picnic along the way. Coming in July or August? Bring your lawn chairs or beach towels and splash together at a cool, refreshing Buffalo River swimming hole for the afternoon.
And, plan on visiting area attractions, such as beautiful Mystic Caverns or the unique shopping and dining found in nearby Branson, MO or Eureka Springs, AR. Let us arrange for you to take a pretty trail ride together at Rimrock Cove Ranch. And be sure to ask our office staff for area dining suggestions for the chance to savor some of the local flavor.
With advance notice, we can have flowers waiting in your cabin, as well as festive balloons or even a gift basket filled with great gifts from our store, from wonderful candles to Columbia apparel and t-shirts. Want rose petals scattered on the bed? An arrangement of festive balloons? Our office staff stands ready to help you add those little touches that will let someone know he or she is the apple of your eye!
As a popular couples' destination and nature-focused resort, we believe quality spa massages and body treatments are going to be a welcome addition to the BOC family of guest services. We are pleased to announce the opening this summer of Riverstone Spa---the little spa with the big difference! And what is that difference? You'll soon see and, more importantly, feel!
