Our tribute cabin to the one, the only Buffalo National River!  This beautiful mountain-top cabin rental is just the place to steep yourself in the beauty of the upper Buffalo River wilderness. Whether you’re relaxing on the front porch swing or enjoying a soak in the cabin’s hot tub, the cabin’s 30-mile view across the Ozark Mountain wilderness is simply spectacular. Love starry skies?  Our Buffalo River Cabin is the perfect perch for spotting shooting stars – and don’t forget to make a wish to return to Ponca when you spy one!

This fully furnished cabin features a roomy, split-level floor plan, with a King bed on the main floor and a loft with a queen bed and private half-bath.

Looking for Buffalo River adventure?  The Buffalo River Cabin places you within an easy short drive of Ponca’s most popular activities, including hiking the Lost Valley Trail, seasonal elk watching and access to the Buffalo National River.  Planning a summer getaway?  This cabin is within just a few minutes of our favorite Buffalo River swimming holes!

Bringing a Pet?  Please note that a pet fee of $29 per pet, per night is additional to the stated cabin rate.
