Pam Ernst's Cloudland Property
CLOUDLAND for sale.
TIM ERNST, one of the most famous nature and landscape
photographers in the country, has decided to depart from his
beloved CLOUDLAND. Mr. ERNST's magnificent lodgepole pine
log cabin clings to a high sandstone bluff that rims the
unbelievably beautiful UPPER BUFFALO RIVER WILDERNESS AREA.
Hike right out the back door along an easy 15-minute
primitive hiking trail to the world famous HAWKSBILL CRAG.
This truly awesome natural rock feature protrudes out over
the rugged WILDERNESS AREA and draws visitors from around
the world. The views from the cabin are breathtaking. This
has to be the premier building site in the entire OZARK
MOUNTAINS. Located at the end of a private drive and, the
mostly wooded 40 acres is bounded on two sides by the
WILDERNESS AREA, providing for additional privacy. Inside
the cabin, one is treated to a spacious, towering room that
serves as the living room/kitchen, dining-room. The ceilings
are covered by nicely patterned T&G aspen. All of the
kitchen counters are topped-off in natural, durable, easy to
clean granite. A large native sandstone wood-burning
fireplace encloses the entire southwest corner of the
living-room and can additionally be viewed from the kitchen
and master bedroom/loft.
Enjoy your peaceful
slice of heaven sitting 500' above the Buffalo National
River in Newton County, Arkansas. Just minutes away and
above the same bluffline as Hawksbill Crag sits a beautiful
oasis called Cloudland. A place that Arkansas' favorite
nature photographer, Tim Ernst, has called home for more
than 18 years. This spacious log cabin and 40 acres is a
completely protected piece of property looking out over the
expansive Upper Buffalo River Wilderness and is surrounded
by the Ozark National Forest. From the back deck, witness
clouds being born after a summer rain, eagles soar, and
watch the emerald waters of the mighty Buffalo
right on by below. At night, enjoy some of the darkest skies
in Arkansas with the clearest views of the Milky Way spread
out before you.

permanent residence or a weekend getaway. A full walk-out
basement is loaded with special features such as a media
room, sunroom with hot tub, and a sauna to relax the weary
