Located near Buffalo City, Nelson's is a vacation rental home perfect for those who seek quiet privacy on the White River. Named after the family who settled and farmed here for many years, Nelson's is a true old Ozark farm retreat surrounded by fields and forests. Sitting on the porch gives you a view of the White River 200 feet away, and the Ozark National Forest on the other side.

The Buffalo City area is 20 minutes from downtown Mountain Home, Arkansas. Nelson's is about 1/4 of a mile downstream from where the Buffalo River flows into the White River at Buffalo City. The Public Access to the White River is 1.5 miles away by road, and 1/2 of a mile away by water. River boat rentals, as well as fishing guide services, are available at two operations less than a mile away. Dining, shopping, groceries, 18 hole golf at Big Creek, and other civil amenities are 20 to 30 minutes away.

Pets & Smoking
Many travelers have pet allergies, and many others do not enjoy staying in a lodging facility which allows smoking. Because the majority of our guests are those who prefer to stay in No Pet No Smoking facilities, Nelson's has elected to remain a No Pet No Smoking facility. We realize this may disappoint some travelers, but we cannot make exceptions. Smoking is allowed outside. Thank you for understanding!

The House
Nelson's is a comfortable brick home with 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, kitchen, laundry, and a large open living and dining area which has a captivating view of the White River and the Ozark National Forest. The full bathroom has a hair dryer and plenty of thick weave towels, wash clothes, hand towels and bed linens. An ironing board is also available. The house was upgraded in 2006 and refurnished in 2007.

Heating and cooling is by central heat and air conditioning with ceiling fans in the living room, dining room, each bedroom and the enclosed porch. The main bathroom has a shower tub so you can take a relaxing bath or a quick shower.

Outside the home are several hardwood trees and a well kept lawn where you can cook out on the gas grill. The large grass yard gives room for several river boat trailers and vehicles. The house sits at the end of a long meadow, and between the house and the river is a smaller meadow. Song birds, deer, and small wildlife search for their meals in the meadows and trees around the house. A pair of bald eagles have their nest in a tree nearby on the river.
For outside games Nelson's has provided horseshoes and lawn bowling (Bocce Ball).

Enclosed Porch
The enclosed porch overlooks the White River and is an inviting sanctuary away from the world. The porch can be accessed through an outside entrance, a sliding glass door from the living room, or through the laundry room. It is a place to relax and enjoy your morning coffee, or read a good book. A table and chairs, a twin daybed with pop-up trundle, a porch swing, 2 ceiling fans, and an air conditioner with remote control make relaxing here a true pleasure.

The living room has a view of the White River through this sliding glass
door which leads to the enclosed porch.

Living Room
The living room has Dish Satellite TV with remote, stereo, and a DVD/VCR player. An over stuffed sofa and chair, and new carpeting add to the comfort of this room. Please note that rooms appear a little larger in these photos than they really are due to the use of a wide angle lens. The White River is actually closer to the house than it appears here, an affect also created by the wide angle lens, which we used in order to be able to show you the entire room.
