About Sherry

We golf, fish, travel, but call the 'Ozarks' home. Charlie retired from the fishing/boating industry. We now enjoy fishing, golfing, traveling, spending time together with family, friends, and trying new activities and places of our choosing such as Riverside Vacation Homes (call us direct for reservations!). Being native and local we know the area, people, best restaurants, places of interest and fisheries well. There is nothing more relaxing than spending a day on the deck overlooking the river or in a boat floating and fishing. The scenery is so beautiful it just gives you a totally relaxed feeling unmatched by others. Seeing others have this experience; we've helped many find their retirement home and especially found pleasure in representing couples find and purchase their 'first' home through our real estate office the former Lake River Land Realty. Living in the Ozarks is the dream where many only get to spend vacation or short get aways.

Sherry purchased this House in 1995

Why Sherry chose Lakeview

Living here is a 'lifestyle change' for many. We're fortunate to live here year round in an area where many people only get to 'vacation'. We LIVE our vacation and love to share it with others. Because of this we know the people, the area, best places to go, and are happy to put you in contact with the right connections making the most of your Ozarks vacation. If you have special needs we do our best to see how we can help. Call us to reserve this home VRBO 178163 for family reunions, booking a guide for fishing, special area attractions for those who want to bird-watch, hike, or other activity - we can help you. Our housekeepers are meticulous in cleaning between guests making sure everything in the home is ready for your arrival. Prior to your arrival I will communicate with you to assist in helping with those activities. You don't want to wait til you get here to book the best! Having various or particular ideas planned ahead of time makes the most of your laid back, relaxed vacation.

What makes this House unique

Guests tell us repeatedly it's better than anticipated and most all return again finding the peace and tranquility so relaxing and the homes so clean, spacious and private. Clean, maintained well with all the comforts of a private home unike a resort, hotel/motel, cramped cabin or cottage where you don't have privacy or enough space to 'spread out' when you're not on the water enjoying Ozarks, decks, lakes, rivers, creeks, hiking trails, nature, etc . We have lived in a Riverside Vacation Home during a remodeling project and loved staying to watch. Many guests have stayed while looking to buy a home or doing an extended stay before making a decision to live in the Ozarks, too!

                                                                Small family vacation on the White River.

                                                                Julie P.Palatine, IL

                                                                This was our first time in Arkansas and renting a home from the Hoovers was by far the most enjoyable experience. They are so sweet! We rented the home that is featured on VRBO and it was exactly how it was portrayed. Sitting out on the deck was so relaxing! My husband and son-in-law-to-be took a fishing guide tour of the river and we also went out on the lake with some family and friends who have boats. All in all is was a great time! Comfortable sleeping and the house was very clean. :)

                                                                Riverside #1

                                                                This was our first (of many) stays with Riverside Vacation Rentals. The house was very clean and the location was excellent for access to the area activities. We spent a number of hours just sitting on the deck and watching the river. The fishing off the landing was great!!! We spent the week trout fishing and this fishery is wonderful. We would strongly recommend this home as a rental, just not on the weeks we want it for next year :)

                                                                Thank you!

                                                                My daughters and I stayed at the Riverside Vacation Home on the White River.

                                                                This is our second time staying at one of the Riverside Vacation Homes. It is such a relaxing spot. I love to get up early in the morning and sit on the porch and drink coffee and read, listening to the birds and wildlife waking up. It refreshes my soul to sit and watch the river flow by. There is excellent fishing just off the bank or choose to rent a guide. We did this both times and it was so much fun. There are many attractions for the nature lover, walking, fishing, hiking. Or my favorite just relaxing. The homes are very clean and have such a personal touch in furnishing's it is like visiting friends. Spaciousness for many family members as we had join us throughout the week. I would recommend River Vacation Homes to any family or even individual that just enjoys a beautiful view, peace and quite other than nature. The fog coming up the river each day is quite a delight. We could of stayed for weeks if home hadn't been calling us back. We will definitely come back again. The owners were most gracious and attentive to our needs. thanks so much.

                                                                Many of our guests are "repeaters" - they're almost like family. We are happy to hear your storybook vacation - it lets future guests know Riverside Vacation Homes is the place to stay for the cleanliness, beauty, whether fishing or not, peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. We look forward to your return trip.

                                                                Quiet long weekend

                                                                We had a wonderful time on White River. The home was very clean, comfortable and right on the river! The setting is beautiful. My husband is an avid fly fisherman and I am just a beginner, but we both caught a lot of fish right in front of the house. There is a fly fishing store next door called Copper Johns. The owner is very helpful and is also a great fishing guide. We are planning a return trip soon.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                There's a great spot in front of one of our homes where you'll even see professional guides taking their guests fishing! The river is so crystal clear you can see the trout swimming. Makes you want to grab your gear and start catching.

                                                                Wonderful and relaxing!

                                                                We had a wonderful stay. We especially loved the peacefulness of sitting on the deck watching the river. Easy access to fishing and boating. The house is very clean. We only had one issue with the internet and the owners were very quick to respond and handled the issue. Would love to return! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
