Reconnect with your loved ones by visiting the Buffalo National River Park, America's first National River. The River flows 135 miles through the majestic Ozark Mountains and offers many outdoor adventures. Canoe the river, explore the trails, drive the scenic routes, or view the famous Arkansas Elk herd in the Boxley Valley. Saddleback Lodge is in the heart of the Upper Buffalo National River Park and just minutes from where the River flows through the historic Boxley Valley. Floating the Buffalo is fun and exciting, but the adventures don't stop there. Allow the Upper Trails to take you to historic home sites and numerous waterfalls, including the most popular, Lost Valley; most photographed Arkansas Landmark, Hawksbill Crag; or the highest waterfall between the Rockies and the Appalachians, Hemmed in Hollow at 204 feet.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Allen and I were high school sweethearts and were married a month after my high school graduation. We lived on Cave Mountain, just up the road from the famous Hawksbill Crag, for several years before purchasing this land that is now home to Saddleback Lodge. The land was raw with no road access, water, or electric. We built our dream home in 2007 and Allen has worked to make it what it is today. God has blessed us with three beautiful daughters and their families which consist of five grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Boxley:
This area has always been home for me. Both sets of my Grandparents were born in what is now known as the Buffalo National River Park. My 24 year old Maternal Grandpa married the love of his life when she was 15 and moved her into a 16x16 cabin which he had built on the River in 1927. The partial foundation and chimney still marks the location of this home site. My dad walked across the Buffalo River every weekend to date my mom. Saddleback Lodge is our dream home, but was built late in life when our kids were almost ready to leave the nest. We love our family get-togethers here, but now want to share this wonderful home with you.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Saddleback Lodge features Spruce Pine Logs, Native Stone, Cedar, and Aspen throughout the 6000 square foot structure. It offers many unique benefits, such as complete privacy, wood-burning fireplace, large game room, open fire pit, on-site hiking trail to the majestic waterfall, and the beautiful view off the back porch.
