Getting permission denied errors with NFS

I have exported a directory using NFS. Have added it to /etc/exports. I can mount the directory without any problems on my client machines. I can view subdirectories and browse to all but one of them. When I try to browse to the one directory in question, I get a permission denied error. I cannot view it's contents or copy anything to it. Directory is owned by root and I am doing this as root. Even stranger, while I can't see this particular directory's subdirectories (I get permission denied when I do an ls), I can browse to those subdirectories. I have no problems viewing or modifying any other part of the NFS mount. Thoughts? thanks.
