About Ashley Leahy

Gabe and I live in Eureka Springs AR, we grew up on the river and after college both decided to become whitewater rafting guides up in Maine. We spent our early twenties running rivers in Maine, Vermont and Connecticut. When we married and started having children we knew we wanted to raise our kids near the water. In 2007 Gabe had just finished a float trip on the lower Buffalo and drove the loop around Gilbert, 53 Church street was for sale and the owner of the property which live next door was outside, they started talking and Gabe made an offer on the house that day. All the homes in Gilbert are at least a hundred years old so we knew we were in for a project, but since Gabe is a contractor and quite a handyman himself he knew he was up for the challenge. We made a few necessary updates to the old yellow house and have been enjoying it on weekends and in summers since. In 2011 or so the house across the street came up for sale and since we just love the town so much we decided to buy it and fix it up for friends, family and out of town guests. We hope you find the tranquility we do when we come down here to visit.

Ashley Leahy purchased this house in 2012

Why Ashley Leahy chose Buffalo National River N P

Like I mentioned above we have been bringing our boys here since 2007. We love that we can let them ride there bikes and play outside without having to worry too much about traffic etc. WE love our leisurely walks down to the general store or the rv park. And of course the beautiful National River right down the road . It is the simple life in Gilbert that keeps us coming back. WE hope you enjoy and find the beauty in the simplicity of this historic town.

What makes this house unique

Quiet road for children at play, large double lot for all kinds of activities for you and your family. Walking distance to outfitters who can take you on the petfect canoeing adventure for your family.

Return to the Buffalo

  • 5 of 5

We used to live in AR and wanted to return to float the Buffalo. The closer you get to the River, the more crowded and loud it is. This house was up the road and provided the tranquility and peacefulness we were seeking. House has a well stocked kitchen, it is very clean, lovely deck in the back. The bonus was having AC, especially when we arrived, the house was cool. The bedroom downstairs contains the stairs that lead to the upstairs sleeping quarters, which wasn't very private, but was fine.

Family Time on the Buffalo!

  • 5 of 5

Cozy little house in a cozy little town. My husband and I and our 3 teenagers loved the house at Gilbert. Ashley left bikes for us to ride and was very friendly and accommodating. The house was a 5 minute walk to the river. Gilbert has a cafe that serves wonderful food and maintains a friendly staff. We can't wait to plan another trip!

Better than a five star hotel!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an opportunity to stay here and were amazed at how wonderful it was. The house is welcoming, the location is perfect, and the back deck is fantastic. I would recommend this charming spot to anyone who is seeking a place to build some wonderful memories.

Cozy house, big deck.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. Our favorite feature to the house is the large elevated deck outback with a table, chairs, hammock and gas grill. This is where we spent most of our time. The yard is large which affords you a lot of privacy while on the deck. We would definitely stay here again. The house was clean and furnished well.

Best weekend ever

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying here just this weekend and it was amazing. The house is gorgeous and Gilbert is a beautiful area. I was part of a guys weekend with some old friends and we had such a great time here. The back deck was amazing to grill on and just have a nice place to relax and talk. Morning on the back deck with coffee while the fog gently drifts by was mesmerizing. I highly recommend this place for just about anything!
