Guest Reviews

Amazing experience! My friends and I stayed in the treetop room after we had to get our car towed. Incredibly nice staff over the phone, easy check in and check out, and great room! Loved the balcony. Perfect place to stay in Jasper!

We have stayed at the Arkansas house three separate times, at least two nights each time. We always enjoy our time there. The owners are the nicest folks and always go out of their way to accommodate us. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The place is very unique. I enjoyed reading about the history of the building and the man who built it. Jasper is one of my favorite towns to visit and the Ozark Cafe is just a short walk from the Arkansas house. The Little Buffalo is in the back yard and the Buffalo river is a short drive away. I really can’t say enough about the place. I wish I lived closer. I would make it a regular weekend getaway.

This place is CRAZY. We ride motorcycles and usually stay in motels, but there were not a lot of options in Jasper, so we rolled the dice. We got the room with a balcony, lovely! I could have moved into the bathroom, it was HUGE and very nicely designed and decorated. The lobby must be seen to be appreciated. Rock garden behind the place and you can walk down to the river.

We loved our stay here! Very friendly staff and great vibe. We stayed in the Rose Suite and it was immaculately clean and spacious. Plenty of room for our family. And the MOST COMFORTABLE beds we have ever had in any hotel before. I highly recommend staying here.

Area Attractions

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.

Wildlife Viewing

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 Caverns

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.
