Wood Family Float Trip
Great time spent with family and couldn’t ask for a better place to stay!

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful view of the Buffalo River valley.
The screenshots do not do this place justice. The back wall of windows in the living area had nearly as good of a view as from the deck. The deck was a perfect place to breathe and have morning coffee. My 9-year-old dog instantly turned back into a puppy upon arrival. My 4-year-old loved playing checkers. Also proximity to coursey smoked meat wasn't terrible hehe.
