Perfect little family get away!

We had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend with our family at this beautiful lodge! We highly recommend spending at least one full day at the lodge enjoying the hot tub, grilling under the pergola, and playing board games!

buffalo River Lodge, a great experience

First time a bed and breakfast, but what an experience. The owners were helpful and if we needed something they were there. Otherwise, they gave you your own space and time to enjoy the house and its surroundings. They were able to give us the recommendations needed for dinner and our kayak adventures. I would recommend them ! We enjoyed every bit of our stay!

Remote Getaway

4.4 on May 29, 2015

This is a great B&B if you are really looking to get away from it all. It's located off a very remote road near the Buffalo River. Beth and her husband Dan were very gracious hosts, and the breakfast Beth prepared each morning was very tasty. Highly recommended.

Lovely home and gorgeous view

paid for candy bars...we are spoiled on cookies or muffins available at all times. Very remote which is what we loved. Room hot tub not functioning but a room adjustment was made. Nice people

The best bed and breakfast I've ever stayed at

5 on May 03, 2015

My husband and I stayed and Buffalo River Lodge at the end of April 2015 and we had an absolutely wonderful time! Unfortunately for our hosts (but fortunate for us) we had the lodge to ourselves for all but one day (it isn't quite their busy season yet). It was so quiet and peaceful, and so clean. Beth made a great breakfast in the morning and would have coffee ready for 6am should anyone rise early. The property is in the country but it's pretty easy to access nearby towns. We visited nearly all of them around the town of Yellville. Yellville has great antique shops and a few restaurants. Honestly, if you want to stay near a busy bustling city, this place isn't for you; there aren't any big cities close by. But if you're an outdoor enthusiast and enjoy wildlife, come here. It's a wonderful place full of charm. The people in town are awesome too. A couple took us under their wings after church and showed us around town; even bought us lunch! Yellville is definitely the town you'd think of when you think of southern hospitality! Visit this lodge, you won't regret it!

Valentine and Anniversary Weekend

This was our best Anniversary and Valentines lodging experience in our 12 years together. We were very impressed with the picturesque beauty and panoramic view from the lodge. We are making plans to enjoy a summer visit as well as another romantic Anniversary. Couldn't have been more pleased with accommodations.

wonderful b&b!

spent 2 nites here. there are 5 rooms of which my husband & i stayed in one & our friends stayed in another. no one else rented the other 3 rooms so we had the house to ourselves! the host & hostess were most gracious & met our needs superbly! would go back & highly recommend to others.

Rare find that I call a treasure.

Lodge is a longs ways into the country but what a lovely country and an even more lovely lodge. Look forward to returning there for an more extended visit.

Disappointed, but nice and clean

4.0 on September 02, 2014

We chose this bed and breakfast based on what the website said they offered, specifically a hot tub in the room and an optional dinner on Saturday night. After they charged our card, we found out they no longer have the dinners and the hot tub in our room was broken. So they gave a small discount. There are extremely limited options for food within 30 to 40 miles. The breakfast was good but very simple and small servings. The location and view is beautiful for a weekend away out in nature. The place was very clean. The other guests did smoke just outside the door so there was a constant stale smoke stench in the main living area. Overall, it was unfortunately not what they advertised and that made it disappointing.

Should be renamed Serenity B&B

3.8 on September 01, 2014

The grounds are absolutely breathtaking. Every turn of our heads was another bit of nature heaven. Beth and Dan are detailed hosts who are there when you need and perfectly out of the way, keeping it intimate as we B&B-ers are usually desiring. There are many tucked away places to be outside, near the waterfall and stone scape, or the hot tub or wrap around deck underneath the canopy of trees. The flock of flittering hummingbirds is a sight we will never forget, hummers weaving around us and the trees and to the many hummer feeders they have hanging up. It is tucked away after a longer curvy road ride, making the serenity and peace of the B&B so appealing. The breakfasts were adequate, though we are much more clean foodists and would've preferred more protein than a carb breakfast. Be sure to follow the directions they supply and not the GPS - the GPS does NOT get you there, and its somewhat unknown by GPS. Rely on Beth and Dan for directions and you'll find yourself enjoying a place you will want to go back to over and over again just to get the serenity it offers. Thank you very much!
