About this listing
Stay in the private, air-conditioned cabin directly on the Buffalo. Enjoy our fishing dock, river views, and private put in/take out deck. Feel free to bring your own kayak! Rentals available a few miles away at Buffalo River Resort. Great star viewing. Amish country is just a few miles down our road for sorghum, pickles, jams, honey, produce, etc. [Note: Recent reviews refer to our former space, an RV. We have graduated to renting our cabin instead. All other info on listing is current!]
Full private access to the Buffalo River makes this space unique! The cabin is on stilts and is accessed up a short flight of stairs. The "front" of the cabin is really the back, because the front door faces the riverside. Walk down the slope through the backyard and you're standing on the bank of the river. Bring firewood and enjoy the firepit. Firewood is for sale locally. Chairs provided for campfire gathering.
Fridge & freezer, hot plate, coffeemaker, dishes and cookware provided in the cabin. Please note there is no microwave, so plan accordingly. There is a convection toaster oven that can fit a 12" pizza.
Your shower is inside the cabin, while the toilet facilities are in an "outhouse" on the porch. Please see the house manual for details on how to use the modern composting toilet!
We are on a flood plane here, but floods are rare, typically once a year. In the event that flooding affects your reservation, I will notify you as soon as possible and grant a full refund if a cancellation due to weather is necessary.
(Please note: If you have additional guests who don't mind camping, we also have a "BYOTent" option under a separate Eagle & Otter listing.)
Backyard & Private riverside dock for fishing or kayak put-in.
Smoker grill for charcoal or wood grilling
Interaction with guests
I will aim to be available to meet you at check-in if possible. It's a chill vibe here. I'm a songwriter so that's usually what I'm working on, or outdoor projects. I'm pretty quiet and will leave you to do your thing, but I encourage you to let me know if you need anything at all. Please check out our local guide here in the listing for recommendations on local food and other attractions.
Other things to note
I do provide coffee, tea, and grits if you want to cook your own. It's tough to predict what people want as far as breakfast foods, but coming later this summer I will be debuting a made-to-order room service/to-go menu. Animal lovers will find the place delightful. If you have a strong dislike for pets you may want to stay elsewhere. 3 cats and 2 dogs live on the premises. The cats are outside cats but they do mainly hang out on the cabin porch. The dogs are often outdoors but will be put up at night to keep things quiet. You also might see and hear some domestic ducks around the cabin. They visit underneath the deck when they want a snack, and I keep a metal barrel of corn on the porch... if you want to give them a treat, a single scoop is fine.
Please respect the ducks.
