Cabin was great--not happy with neighbors.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was great, and just what we needed. However, I was unaware that there was a smaller cabin just a few feet from our cabin that was also available to rent.

We picked this cabin to "get away" and instead had to deal with a rather large group of men just a few feet from the front of our cabin the whole weekend. That was very disappointing for the price we paid for our cabin. Other than that, we were happy.

Owner's Response: We greatly apologize for the disruption on your stay. The extra cabin which faces away from the main house was rented at the last minute to some men "getting away " for the weekend and was unaware it was a bachelor party. We asked if you needed anything , if you had made us aware of the situation we would have indeed calmed them down. When you requested an additional day we reduced the price as well as not charge the additional people you said you had. For you troubles we'd like to offer you a weekend during the fall free of charge. Please let us know the dates with a little advanced notice when you'd like to come. Again, our sincere apoligies because our goal is for our guests to leave with complete satisfaction with their stay,

Stunning views and great location

  • 5 of 5

A great home base for all of your Buffalo National River adventures. The house has a giant deck with an incredible view, the perfect place for sunset dinners. We stopped at Wits End Ranch for only a few nights to break up our cross country road trip. Our only regret was not staying longer. The house accommodated my parents, two boys, the dog and I with plenty of room to spare. It was clean and packed with plenty of games to keep everybody satisfied.

A Wonderful experience

Good times

  • 5 of 5

Hi. We stayed at wits end ranch for location and the view and were not disappointed at all with either. Near the buffalo and white river and Blanchard springs. Cabin was clean and well stocked. Plenty of games to play and the deck and view were incredible. Plan to go back. Next year. A-1.

Clean and comfortable with beautiful views.

  • 4 of 5

These are new owners and there was an issue with the place being double booked, not their fault. The owner called and apologized and worked it our for both groups. They worked to provide a bunk house that would accommodate my group and allow the other group to have the main house since they were the first to book. The owners went to added expense and cut our original price by half. The location is the best for floating the river and served our needs better than other places we previously rented. This is a remote and secluded area with lots of privacy. Great cell phone signal, the kids loved that!!! We will be staying with Witt's End Ranch again.
