A bed on the Arkansas. Not a bed and breakfast. Breakfast is cellophane pastries and fruit. There is no host. Overpriced for what it is. The room is spacious, clean and rustic. The kayak park in BV is way cool.

We returned as a couple to A Bed on the Arkansas and stayed for almost a week visiting family in Buena Vista. A year ago we booked the whole house for a family reunion of sixteen people and four generations. This year we did a variety of things in and around BV and found this to be the perfect 'base...

Overall, I would recommend A Bed on the Arkansas. It was not exactly what we were expecting. Yes, it is on the Arkansas, but you really can't see the river from the patio. You have to walk out a ways to see it. Maybe from the upper floors you can see it. We could hear it faintly sometimes, but the... More

House owned by The Adventure Company and did some rafting with them as their office and rafting facilities 200 feet from the rental house. It is not a B&B as only... More

We found this B & B on the internet, "A Bed on the Arkansas". It was perfect for our family of 12. The grandkids loved it on the Arkansas River and all of the adults enjoyed the sound of the river from the patio. A continental breakfast was brought in every morning which included fresh fruit and danish or muffins.... More

I found this B & B after I tried all the other B & B's with reviews on tripadvisor those were all booked. This surprised me since this is considered low season. So my 1st piece of advice is as soon as you know when your going, call and get a reservation. The view was beautiful, but to be honest... More
