75 years of Ozark Hospitality

Arkansas House Hotel

Recommended by Southern Living Magazine, Arkansas House (c.1933) is the landmark hotel of the region and is celebrating its 75th year. We offer 3 luxury suites and 2 charming hotel rooms for guests who want more than a motel or a cabin. Cable, movie channel and HBO.

Boardwalk Cafe

The cafe, located right on the bank of the Little Buffalo River, features pure, local, fresh fruits, vegetables and meats grown by the organic farmers from the high mountains of Newton County. At the Boardwalk Cafe, you can experience the exotic flavor of a thick Buffalo steak or a lean Elk Burger. We also offer wild-caught Shrimp and Salmon dishes, great salads and sandwiches and zesty cajun dishes such as Shrimp Creole and Chicken and Elk Gumbo.  Click here for menu.

Little Buffalo Riverhouse

It features a full-size living room, fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, large bath with jacuzzi tub and washing machine and dryer. It has two bedrooms and will sleep up to 8.

"Finding a restaurant that serves locally-grown, organic food is something that I haven't been able to find in cities of millions throughout the U.S.  To find one here in Jasper, a village of 498, is a testimonial to the quality of people and visitors you have coming to this rare Buffalo River jewel, sitting on top of the world all the way from the Rockies to the Smokies and from Canada to Gulf."
