“Every morning when I awake,” says cabin owner Thelma Pruitt, “I’m reminded that I live in paradise.” She’s speaking of the pastoral scenery of the Little Buffalo River valley
just one mile east of Jasper on Highway 74. The Pruitt ancestors, John D. and Vernetta Jane Pruitt, settled here in the 1800’s and made their home along the banks of the Little Buffalo River. A dirt lane on the property near a large meadow leads right down to the river. The Pruitt family cemetery is located a mile down the road.

Buffalo River Bunkhouse & Bungalow are 2 rental units on part of the original Pruitt homestead where 5 generations of Pruitts farmed and ranched. The property has evolved to fit modern times as the 2 vacations rentals were renovated from existing buildings and are rented out to guests who come to float the Buffalo, hunt, hike or simply visit family in the area.

Due to the winding roads and scenic beauty, this region is becoming increasingly popular to motorcycle enthusiasts. We welcome bikers at Buffalo River Bunkhouse & Bungalow. In addition to the convenient location so near Scenic Hwy 7, cyclists really appreciate the paved driveway and the covered parking for their bikes.

The Bunkhouse features a dormitory-style sleeping arrangement which groups find most agreeable with their lodging needs. Enter the Bunkhouse by walking through a 40′ x 20′ covered patio area outfitted with grill, picnic tables and lounge chairs. This veranda overlooks the Little Buffalo River and provides a comfortable place to picnic and lounge while protected from the elements of weather. Trimmed in white lattice and equipped with serving table, this pavilion is suited to host outdoor weddings and family reunions. The Bunkhouse sleeps up to 12 people. A nearby Bungalow with two bedrooms sleeps 6. Both units feature satellite TV service. Rented separately or together, they provide clean comfortable lodging for your vacation to the Ozarks. Rent both for larger groups as together the units can sleep up to 18 people.

Standard features of the 2 rentals are clean comfortable beds made up with quality linens and topped with handmade quilts. The towels are plush and thirsty, and the full-size kitchens, complete with microwave, coffee maker and toaster, are adequately supplied with cooking utensils, dishes and flatware. Both are decorated with family photographs, heirlooms and retired farm implements passed down by parents and grandparents. The Bunkhouse is handicap accessible and the Bungalow is semi-accessible.
