Great for family reunions! Time to get back in touch with life and loved ones!

We are tucked away, yet only an hour from Branson, MO. famous for it's many great activities and shows. As well as one hour in the opposite direction to Fayetteville: Rogers & Bentonville is home to our famous Crystal Bridges Museum. And of course Eureka Springs is even closer and always a hit to visit.

We are pretty centralized in location about an hour or less from shopping, nightlife, outdoor attraction and river enjoyment of all types. Canoe the Buffalo River. Enjoy scenic Jasper and Ponca, just 25 minutes away.

We are located 3 miles off Hwy 21. Locally, we're just a couple miles from the Kings River, for hiking and fishing, and the Buffalo National River reception area is home to popular attractions like the Lost Valley Hiking Trail, the Boxley Valley Elk Herd, the Ponca Elk Education Center and the Upper Buffalo Mountain Biking Trails.

Plenty to keep you busy in all directions. Or just enjoy the peace of being in the Ozarks with all our animals and us. We would love to have you stay at The Resting Place Cabin! Hope to see you soon!

About Julianne Leffert

Pete & Lynda Bowers, pictured above are the owners.

We enjoy traveling up the hill to our home and waving or stopping to introduce ourselves to our different guest. Love seeing children enjoying themselves playing outdoors and catching pollywogs in our pounds and other fun old fashion things kids used to enjoy doing.

Julianne Leffert purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Julianne Leffert chose Huntsville

Pete and Lynda's goal for purchasing Mountain Valley Ranch was providing a safe and peaceful place others could stay on site and relax, read, walk, watch animals and find respite in peace and quietness.

What makes this cabin unique

We have failed to hear one guest over the past 11 years say they wish they could hear all the sounds of cars, busy streets and loudness. NO, they say, they love the quietness and the peace provided through the sounds of natural breezes through the trees, the sound of our creeks and streams, livestock running up and down our hills and our lovely birds. Travelers love our porches with beautiful views. A time to reflect while greatly enjoying life in a quite tranquil setting.

The perfect weekend getaway with plenty of room for activities!

  • 5 of 5

My friends & I were looking for a place with enough room to accommodate up for 8 of us for a weekend & we all slept, stayed, & played comfortable at the Resting Place! We loved the fire pit, porch seating, & even the sporting equipment in the garage! Close enough to the Buffalo River that we escape to a swimming hole during the heat of the day. We would love to return & highly recommend!

Perfect place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was amazing, it felt like a home away from home. It was well furnished and had all of the necessities. The view sitting on the front porch was beautiful. This kids loved feeding the horses and the donkey and exploring the property. Every morning and evening we got to see deer roaming the property. I would recommend staying at the cabin, it was a great experience and we definitely plan on going back.

Roomy, Comfy, Private, and so Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We rented for 5 people for 7 days and it was so wonderful! We were a little all-over-the-place on our arrival time plan, but they were so accommodating and made it work for us. The cabin had plenty of room for us all - it was well appointed with big couches and a coffee table, seating for 4 at the dinning table and another 4 at the kitchen bar. It had everything we needed for our stay. The cabin was clean and well kept. We particularly enjoyed the front and back porch seating, the backyard fire pit, the view, deer every single day, and the horses that would occasionally head to the upper pasture for some petting (and carrots and apples). The cabin is secluded and private, yet not that far from the places we wanted to go play. There is a Walmart in Huntsville where we went to buy some snacks and supplies and there are parks, trails, golf, and food all within a relatively short distance. We were able to get wifi at the cabin and, although there is no cable TV, we found we didn't really miss it! We brought some games with us, but there are also some yard games in the garage and board games for inside. All-in-all - I'm so happy we found this place. It was the perfect mix of cabin stay and launching pad for our adventures and it was a perfect fit for our family!
