I happened across this property while searching for something close to where our family had scheduled a family reunion. After arriving I feel like we hit the jackpot. The house is a mile or so down a private road in the mountains. Totally secluded and built artfully into the mountain, nestled in the trees. The house is just cool. 3 levels of decks, one screened in to enjoy the evening free of bugs, plus the layout of the house is just so unique. Open living room with lots of windows to enjoy the view. The kitchen was fully equipped to do some baking and home cooked meals. We loved all the antique furniture throughout the house (and I had a nice soak in the claw foot tub!). So many thoughtful touches: bookcases with a diverse collection of fiction novels, another upstairs with even more nature and non-fiction books, a huge movie DVD collection, the fridge was stocked with a bunch of common condiments, and spices were the cabinet. The house was also spotless, my sister's boyfriend commented how he wanted to hire whoever cleaned because it was so impressive! At the last minute we found out that he couldn't find a sitter for his dog, but it was only $20/night to bring him with us! Definitely worth it. She even had some pet food dishes in the entry way. We wished we could stay longer and hope to plan a trip just to come back.

Leatherwood House is a charming, yet spacious cabin secluded in the woods. We stayed there for a family reunion and it was close & nice.

“Secluded, comfortable, and close to all the Upper Buffalo features”

It's hard to stay much closer to the Buffalo National River than Leatherwood House.

We squeezed two small families into the house a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Practically across the road from Steel Creek campground and river access, and just down the road from Ponca (and the Elk Center, the Buffalo Outdoor Center, the historic cabins, Lost Valley hiking trail, the elk viewing fields, and Boxley Valley), Leatherwood house is the perfect home base for a vacation exploring the Upper Buffalo.

Pam is a talented artist and the paintings she shares with visitors in the cabin will have you wanting to take a piece of her work to commemorate your stay. The cabin is beautiful and well equipped. I was especially impressed to see a washer and dryer (rare!) and with the multiple areas to sit and visit outside on decks, screened porches, etc. They make the house seem twice as large!

(Tips: Check out Low Gap Cafe just down the road for an amazing meal and a unique experience! Elk are best viewed just after sunrise and just before sunset in the Ponca/Boxley area; bring binoculars if you have some. If you make it to Jasper, Emma's House of Junk, the Chamber of Commerce artist shop, and the Cliff House Inn restaurant (south on 7) are not to be missed. Lost Valley Canoe has basic groceries if you forgot something... but nobody in Newton County sells alcohol, so bring that with you. If you get to Harrison, stop at Leonardo's Pizza for some amazing food and even more of Pam's artwork on the walls.)

This place is fantastic. The pictures on their website actually don't do it justice. Surrounded by nature and wildlife. This is a true get away from it all place to stay without sacrificing comfort and amenities.
The claw footed bathtub is wonderful.
The owners are a joy to deal with.
