We enjoyed the stay and the stop back in history…. that’s something we look for everywhere we go. Thank you again.
…here is a little token lagniappe, a tiny rose hat box for your lovely Rose Suite. We so enjoyed it. The food was excellent, the area beautiful. We felt so welcome. We will be back one of the these days, if the Lord is willing.
I loved the peace and quiet of the room. All of the amenities with a touch of history. Thank you for your hospitality.
After 55 years, I returned to where fond memories are, all the while listening to the meadow lark sing his rendition of Amazing Grace – how sweet the sound. Best wishes and God Peace to you and your guests.

The Buffalo National River
The Buffalo River region remains one of the best kept secrets in the US. The centerpiece is the Buffalo National River, a 150 mile wild river, the first designated National River in America. For more information on this national treasure, visit the Buffalo National River Headquarters website.
From September to December each year elk viewing in Boxley Valley is considered at its peak. During these months, bull elk fight for domination of the herds of cows in Boxley Valley. A popular past-time is to visit Boxley Valley in the evenings to hear the elk bugle and witness the elk up close. People come to the area from many states to view this annual spectacle.
Rare and endangered Trumpeter Swans can be viewed from the road on the Buffalo River between Boxley and Ponca, a 15-minute scenic drive from the Arkansas House.
Mystic Cavern was originally called Mansion Cave because of the large calcite formations that fill the incredible underground chamber. One of the most spectacular calcite formations is the “Pipe Organ”. It stands 30 feet tall and 12 feet thick. Mystic Cavern also features some rare calcite formations such as helictites, shields, and spherical stalactites. Just down highway 7 from Jasper. Visit MysticCaverns.com
Smith Creek Preserve
Smith Creek Preserve is 1,316 acres of Ozark forest in Newton County which is bisected by Smith Creek, a tributary to the Buffalo National River. The surrounding forest is home to bats, turkeys, deer, black bear and elk. It is a valuable property because the preserve helps keep the water flowing from Smith Creek into the Buffalo River clean and is a vital connector between the 1.2 million acre Ozark National Forest and the 95,000 acre Buffalo River National River Wilderness Area. The preserve is owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy. For more information, visit the Smith Creek Preserve website.
