Overview

Little Rock House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This is a quiet lakeside cottage located on a fenced 2 acre lot. The original structure was built in 1927 by J. L. Burgie and has remained in the family ever since. Extensively remodeled in 2000, our lake house is a perfect retreat from the pressures of the city. A private pier (not child proof) and concrete boat ramp provide easy lake access. Even in the winter the sunroom is perfect for reading, writing or just contemplating the sun setting over the lake. For warmer days relax on the screened in porch.

Horseshoe Lake provides excellent fishing, and many kinds of birds and other wildlife may be seen near the house, depending on the time of year, including white pelicans, great egrets, bald eagles, barred owls, orioles, cormorants, and warblers. The Cache River Nat'l Wildlife Refuge, where the ivory-billed woodpecker was recently spotted, is within about an hour's drive.

Fantastic Lake Experience

  • 5 of 5
The family took a weekend off on the lake to just get out of the city. We had a fantastic time. Perfect for people that love to be on the lake. Convenient location to Kamp Karefree and Bonds if you need supplies. It is a rustic, peaceful, location on a Lake so do not expect a stay at the Waldorf, but much nicer than the average lake cabin / house we have stayed at in the past. We plan to go back for sure! If you go during the warm months, bring some Wasp and mosquito spray if you are going in the warm months to fight off the flying critters.

Great getaway.

We had a great time. The house was roomy and comfortable. Large yard was great and the lake access was wonderful. We will defiantly go back for another stay.

Great place for the money!

  • 4 of 5
We recently had a group of guys fishing a bass tournament on Horseshoe Lake & enjoyed the stay here. We found this cabin clean & ready to use! With the big yard to park all our trucks & the boat ramp in the back yard this place is a fisherman's dream.

Safety issues and place needs some LOVE

  • 2 of 5
We had a good time but there were some problems. One of the main things we wanted to do was swim but the first day, we got in the lake and couldn't get OUT! The ladder on the pier was missing a critical rung. So we ended up having to come out by walking on the muddy bottom of the lake (ick) then up an EXTREMELY slippery boat ramp. Not pleasant so we did not swim again after that.

Another issue was there was only ONE key and you couldn't lock or unlock any doors without it. When you have multiple people, sometimes you need more than one key. It's also a pain every time you want to go out on the porch or out the front door or back door, you must hunt down the ONE key. More importantly, it's a safety issue. With every door requiring the key to open...what if there was a fire? You could get trapped in there. No way would I take children there because of that.

Fire was a legitimate concern too because one of the kitchen light switches sizzles when turned on. It needs to be checked out.

There was also something wrong with the fridge. The freezer melted and dripped water inside the fridge and ruined some of our food.

The yard was also in need of attention. We'd brought a croquet set but the grass was so high we couldn't play. In fact, I was afraid we might get chiggers. Bushes and things are grown up, trash down by the lake. Also, no outdoor seating other than screened porch. So if you want to sit down by the lake you have to just sit on the ground. There's no seating at all on the pier and no shade either.

Overall the condition of the house was disappointing. There's an old microwave sitting on the floor in front of one of the doors. Dirt and cobwebs...light bulbs out, peeling paint...general maintenance and a GOOD cleaning is really needed. The "decor" is old and cluttery. Admittedly, this bothered me more than my companions and some people would be perfectly fine with it. But if you're the least bit picky about such things, you probably should look at the house before renting.

On the positive side, it is VERY spacious and nicely laid out. We loved the dishwasher and the big kitchen. Bedding was good. Loved the fig tree. Screened porch was nice. Ceiling fans all over. AC worked well. Owner super-accomodating and pleasant. But the place just feels neglected and unloved. It's a beautiful old place and a beautiful location and it's kind of sad that it's not being taken better care of. I would absolutely go back if these things were addressed.

Great family time

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a great time. We were very comfortable the entire time and had a blast catching fish.

Very private and peacefull.

Sunrise on the pier is a wonderfull experience. Watch the birds above the pier and across the lake.

We will be back on our next visit to Memphis.
