What makes Winterwood Lakeside Cottage such a unique Beaver Lake rental?
Winterwood is an Adirondack styled 'getaway' tucked into the Ozark Mountains along the secluded shores of Beaver Lake. Here, with more than eighty-five acres of private woods at your door step, you can hike, swim, picnic or simply sit on the veranda and enjoy the breathtaking view of the lake, your own private dock and the surrounding mountains.
Crafted of Oak and Douglas Fir, this unique Arkansas cabin is a throw back to a time when building such an Ozark Mountain cabin or cottage was an art and living in rustic luxury was a way of life. Winterwood Lakeside Cottage is recognized by 'At Home Arkansas' and 'CitiScapes' magazines as the premier Arkansas cabin rental property in the Eureka Springs Arkansas lodging and Beaver Lake resort areas.
Winterwood Lakeside Cottage is operated in conjunction with Winterwood Recording Studios. Google Winterwood Studios. Please see our personal site below.
We are also proud to have Winterwood featured in the recently released book 'Cliffhanger & Hillside Houses,' a Schiffer book, by E. Ashley Rooney. We are convinced that you will never find another Beaver Lake lodge or Eureka Springs cottage like Winterwood.
Built in 1995, Winterwood Lakeside Cottage features open truss 24 foot ceilings, wood and stone flooring, Douglas Fir wooden plank walls and multiple French styled glass doors that provide a panoramic view of Beaver Lake and the Ozark Mountains. 'With attention to every detail, this elegant Arkansas treasure is a must for those desiring to stay at a one of a kind Beaver Lake vacation home and in one of the most picturesque parts of the United States,' said author E. Ashley Rooney in her recent book.
When you arrive at Winterwood, you will be the only guests staying in the cottage and on this magnificent 85 acre private preserve. That’s what makes your experience so much different from what you would have to settle for at other Beaver Lake cabins, Beaver Lake lodge or Eureka Springs bed and breakfast.”
Winterwood Lakeside Cottage is a stunning Arkansas cabin rental operated in conjunction with Winterwood Recording Studios. Until recently, the cottage could only be rented by artists who recorded in the nearby facility, but, because of the warm enthusiasm it received from the music industry, our Ozark Mountain cabin is now being offered to musicians and non-musicians alike. You don't have to be a musically inclined to visit any of the area Beaver Lake cabins but, if you are, why not consider a “recording vacation” while staying at Winterwood? Our staff has earned over 100 gold and multi platinum albums worldwide.
Winterwood Lakeside Cottage is a really well built cottage on the lake, just a few minutes South of Eureka Springs, near Quigley Castle, and Turpin Creek Zoo. It was a perfect retreat for the 2 of us, and it will easily accommodate our grandchildren, or a large family with 5 children on future trips. Great views and very comfortable setting. The Cottage was very private, the owners live in a home further down along the hillside. We would never have known that they were even around until there was a surprise snowstorm that changed the forecasted light dusting of snow into several inches of snow and ice. They were very helpful and are very professional hosts. We can attest, that if you ever happen to get snowed in somewhere, this is the place to do it.
Our family's stay at Winterwood was exceptional in many ways. Rest, relaxation, fishing, hiking, and even a couple of fun family musical recording sessions at Winterwood Studios with sons, daughter-laws, grandkids, and grandparents. Our hosts were very warm and accommodating to our needs, not to mention they have some great rocks on the property. Definitively hope to make staying at Winterwood a family tradition. Highly recommend this little slice of heaven and the Winterwood Cottage Beaver Lake experience!
Spent a couple of wonderful nights with my wife and some great friends! Accommodations were extra nice and the scenery was terrific!! Highly recommend this location for just about any occasion.
Spent Spring Break here with our son, daughter-in-law and our 1 year old grandson. If you enjoy the out-of-doors and peaceful isolation then you'll enjoy this property. We've rented through VRBO in Switzerland, Santa Fe, San Francisco, Savannah and other places but this property stands out. Far enough from town to decompress but near enough to get what you need as far as goods or meals or entertainment. Owners are right nearby, gracious and quite helpful.
Seven college friends for over 40 years met at Winterwood for our annual get together. It was a great 3 day reunion. This was a perfect place to reunite, share stories and visit the Eureka Springs and Bentonville area (Crystal Bridges Museum) In spite of the snow (yes, it was May 4) and rain we had a wonderful time. The secluded atmosphere of Winterwood helped us to enjoy the beautiful views, admire the unique building, eat great food and do a lot of relaxing and visiting. Thanks to our hosts, The stay was wonderful.
Simply put, perfection. Winterwood Lakeside Cottage is, we believe, everything and more than its owners intend for it to be. And from start to finish we could not have asked for a better experience working with them to make the reservation, have questions answered, etc...they are extremely accommodating.
The Winterwood "magic" began the moment we drove through the gates. We had a sense of "we're here on the top of this mountain, behind this wonderful gate, going into this fairy tale cottage and the world is not gonna bother us for a while." The beauty of that "dream" is we were only about 14 miles from Eureka Springs should we have chosen to leave the enchanted forest - which we did not!
We did not even make it in the front door before we were wowed by the owner's fine attention to detail in craftsmanship when building Winterwood: The Tree Sculpture on the front door of the cottage along with the hand forged iron hinges and hardware for the door (just one example). The interior is warm and inviting and in winter begs for the fire, a blanket and a book. We threw in a hot pot of soup to go along with that and it was perfection! And we haven't even touched on the views! I don't even know where to start...the lake is gorgeous, the sunsets, and oohhh the sunrises. I slept in every day, but the bed is situated so that you have a view of the lake from all angles so that if you just take a peek in the morning it absolutely takes your breath away - stunning. Then the walks through the woods.
Well, I should leave something for you to discover on your own! Of helpful information I should point out that as it is a ways into town you should bring a few groceries or snacks and go from there. I enjoy cooking so I did that and it worked great for us.
Your owner/hostess is wonderful and so thoughtful and will have a welcome basket with goodies waiting for you.
We can't wait to book this property again, hopefully for a summer stay, as we know the experience will have it's own "magic" to discover in that season.
Thanks to the owners for a great job and for sharing this property with the rest of us!
