Bella Casa Buffalo River can host a large family with 2 levels of living space. This luxury rustic cabin can sleep up to 9 with 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 baths. Maximum occupancy is 11 with 2 on the sleeper sofa. The main entrance located upstairs welcomes you to a living area with comfortable leather couches, a large screen TV equipped with DirecTV, and a lovely sun room with seating to view the panoramic views of the gorgeous Buffalo River valley and your own private natural spring flowing into a pond. It is not uncommon for neighboring horses to wander around the property and an occasional Elk visit.

The cozy dining room seats 6 and is adjacent to the kitchen which has everything you need to cook a gourmet meal including a refrigerator with ice maker/filtered water, stove/oven and dishwasher.

Please Note: 1. There is 1 mile of dirt road to the cabin and we would recommend arriving in the daylight hours due to the steep county roads. Please follow the BLUE BELLA CASA BUFFALO CABIN signs.

There is no cellular service in that area for about 10 miles east or west of the address and at the cabin. We do have a landline with unlimited long distance and WIFI for iMessage, etc. for your convenience. 3. Our cabin sits on 6 acres surrounded by private property. Please be courteous and stay within the fence around the cabin. There are some wonderful hiking trails in the Buffalo National forest. 4. No Four-Wheelers, ATV's or RTV's are allowed at the property.

This place was great! Unfortunately for us we planned our trip to the Buffalo River area at a popular mid-October time, and Bella Casa only had two nights available the week we came. In addition to the three bedrooms and two baths, this place had a downstairs game room with ping-pong table couches and TV, a washer & dryer upstairs (that we needed after getting all wet & dirty hiking around Buffalo National River Park), a full kitchen, living room upstairs with a huge big-screen TV, a BBQ grill outside, and a fire pit outside. (Picture of the front of the house is attached) We had a fire each of the two nights we stayed and made S’mores.(picture attached). With the added treat of being visited by the fire each night by the cattle herding dog, that was very friendly. It is a little bit of a bumpy gravel road to get here but well worth it. Its situated in the middle of cattle pastures ( picture looking out at one pasture from the front yard is attached).

Beautiful winding road over the Ponce/Boxley bridge following directions through a lovely wooded drive to the spectacular huge cabin in a clearing. Easy access to Jasper and the Buffalo Outdoor Center. A general store is near for anything you forgot to bring. The layout and amenities of this home are first class without being pretentious. Everything you need for total comfort and relaxation. The wrap around spacious porch keeps the sun at bay with two large decks for morning coffee overlooking the pond with fog drifting over the mountains. The larger of two decks has hammocks which look out on the awesome hot tub and fire pit. The sounds of nature abound and if your lucky you will see elk, deer and cows in route to this gorgeous home. The owners have thought of every detail!!! Don't forget to zip line- they take every precaution and it was a once in a lifetime fabulous experience.

Such a great location in the middle of the mountains -- with quick and easy access to Buffalo Outdoor Center, Kyle's Landing, Ponca, and all the adventurous places. A clean and roomy mountain-feeling cabin! We loved our stay.

Our group of 12 thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay at the Bella Casa last October. Not only was the house clean, roomy, well stocked for a large group or family, the location was serenely idilic. We spent our days rock climbing at the nearby Horseshoe Canyon Ranch and enjoyed evenings at the house with home grilled dinners, hot tubbing, stargazing, ping pong tournaments, and movies. We have made plans to return this fall.

We really enjoyed a long weekend at Bella Casa Buffalo River. The front and side porches are perfect for drinks or an outdoor dinner. There's a fence around the quaint house, with convenient places to park at the rear of the house. Because it's at the end of a gravel road, it's exceptionally quiet. Our teenagers got a kick out of the cattle that wandered by now and then. They also enjoyed the ping-pong table. The location is great if you're interested in exploring the Buffalo. You can't drive (or even walk, I think) directly to the river, but Steele Creek campground is about seven minutes away by car, depending how fast you're willing to take the gravel road back to the highway. Kelly obviously knows how to manage a rental property -- she called us courteously soon after we arrived to make sure everything was in order.
