  • Perfect Getaway


    RiverSong is a perfect family getaway. Celebrating Thanksgiving together was easy with the fully stocked kitchen and the views of the Arkansas are spectacular. We saw a bald eagle fly by the windows and enjoyed watching the deer in the yard. It is conveniently close to town, but seems like a world away. We absolutely loved our stay!

    Every single thing about River song is 5 stars. I honestly can’t think of a single thing that would have made my stay better. The only complaint I have is I had to leave!!!

    This is the second time we have stayed in this home and we LOVE it. Love the location, the home itself, the privacy, the sound of the river, the amenities. It feels like it's remote, but it's really only a couple of minutes' drive from Buena Vista, which has several excellent restaurants and some nice easy walking trails along the river. (Plenty of harder trails in the area too, of course). A+ rental!

  • Paradise!


    We have stayed at numerous VRBOs and this one is a highlight of our family vacations.

    The river and birdsong are literally all a guest hears. The home is well-appointed with nearly every guest need or desire anticipated. Plenty of activities in Buena Vista and nearby for outdoors people. The home and it's 3-tier riverfront deck is perfect for a meal or a good read. One correction to the listing: there are 3 bedrooms (not 2 bedrooms). The homeowners are gracious and responsive. Thanks for a terrific time for our family.

    We had a lovely stay and it ranked as one of our favorite family vacations ever! One of the best VRBO vacation homes in which we've stayed. The river literally all you hear in this home and on any of the 4 decks. The home has 3 bedrooms, each on a different floor. Plent of space to gather together or find your own reading nook. The owners are very attentive and responsive. Plenty of outdoor activity in the area. Nice variety of restaurants in downtown.
