Rimrock Cove Ranch

180 Acres of wilderness in the heart of the Ozarks

Stonewall Cabin at Rimrock Cove is a beautifully handcrafted log cabin that sleeps up to seven guests comfortably. The private bedroom downstairs has a handmade mission queen bed and the spacious loft has a handmade log queen bed and also a queen sleeper sofa. Air bed also available. It has a pleasing western decor blended with the Mission style of the Arts and Crafts era. Nestled on a hillside, the cabin overlooks a pond and has an expansive view of the valley beyond. Wrap-around porches and a stone patio add plenty of comfortable outdoor space for grilling out, eating and just relaxing. Stonewall Cabin is the perfect get-away spot for families or couples. Rimrock Cove is located only 9 miles from Ponca and the Buffalo National River. We are also in close proximity to Eureka Springs and Branson for day trips.

Located near the un-tamed Upper Buffalo National River.

This is horse country! So come join us for a guided horseback ride through some of the most beautiful country in America. You'll ride down quiet wooded trails flanked by large bolders, cross a meandering stream and venture into open meadows with sweeping views of the mountains beyond. Wildlife and wildflowers abound! Our horses are gentle and easy to ride. We welcome families with children.

At Rimrock Cove for the month of February we will be tapping maple trees and cooking down maple syrup.  Guests may want to participate by going out on the horse drawn wagon to help collect sap from the maple trees and come back to the "sugar shack" to watch as we cook it down into delicious maple syrup. Hayride prices apply at $15 plus tax per person for a one hour trip. Why go all the way to Vermont when you can have the Maple Sugar experience right here in the Ozarks? Call for scheduling. 870-553-2556.

Easily accessible from Fayetteville, Harrison, Eureka Springs, Springfield MO or Branson MO. Get away from it all on an adventure you'll remember for a lifetime!
