St. Joe cabin description

The Wits End Ranch location is private and secluded, yet less than 5 minutes from U.S. Hwy 65, ¼ mile past the Hwy. 65 & Coursey’s Dr. Junction. It is one of the most beautiful spots in the Ozark Mountains. The Wits End Ranch is located less than an hour south of Harrison, Arkansas and less than 2 hours from Little Rock, Arkansas and the Springfield/Branson, MO area.

The Ranch property borders the Buffalo National River Park N.P.. There are miles of hiking, biking and horse trails, spectacular scenery, wildlife and outdoor fun for every season of the year. Enjoy a beautiful sunset from the spacious deck. Relax in front of the huge fireplace on fall and winter evenings. A great escape from the hustle and bustle of the real world. Perfect for a family reunion, company retreat or romantic getaway.

The Main House sets high on a hill overlooking the 100,000+ acre National Park. It has two bathrooms, 2 large bedrooms, 1 with a king and 2 double beds, one with a queen, two double beds and a single bed. The living room has a sleeper sofa and two day beds.
