Arkansas Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin - 4 Bedrooms - 3 Baths - (Sleeps 8)

NOTICE: Winterwood has over 3,700 feet of its own lake frontage and it's right outside of your door!! **Not all VRBO / HomeAway “Beaver Lake” listings are actually on the lake. They do not have their own lake frontage or access and don’t offer Beaver Lake views. Please read the listings carefully. If having these amenities is important to you, Winterwood is a sure thing. Please read on....

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.

Rustic Luxury, Fantastic People

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing, Awesome, Awe-inspiring

  • 5 of 5

Those are just a few words in how I would describe our stay at Winterwood. Eric and Sativa were extraordinary hosts and we couldn't have asked for anything more. They were very accommodating when you needed them but private enough to not even know they were there. Four of my friends and I are in a band and we rented out the cottage to get away from everything, no phones, no TV, no distractions and we're able to go out there and get inspired to write some new music and ended up writing 5 songs in the process while we were there. Great place to stay if you want to get away from the woes and stress of everyday life, very peaceful and tranquil. We will definitely be back maybe to get inspired again for our next record. Thanks again Eric and Sativa for an amazing experience.

We love to travel and have stayed at many VRBO properties. We have to say that this property was absolutely the best and our favorite getaway so far. If you are looking to get away from it all this is the place. It is a beautiful home and the kitchen had everything we needed to make incredible meals. The owners, Eric and Sativa, are the first VRBO owners we have ever met and they are wonderful, sweet people. If you do enough VRBO properties, you'll find this isn't always the case. Wonderful place. Wonderful people. Make your reservation now, because if you don't, I'll beat you to it. This is now our annual mecca!!!!!!

Huge Disappointment. 5 star reviews? Really??

  • 2 of 5

I am shocked at how misleading this place was, and sick at how much I paid to stay here. I actually planned our entire family vacation around staying here, and when we "checked in" we realized it was this guy's garage converted into a guest home. No luxuries at all and there is nothing private about staying in someones garage in the front of their house while they are still occupying the property.

Owner's Response: To whom it may concern: I received an email from the complainant with the following sentence which appears to be a request for money: " .... the only thing you could have done to make it better was to refund a couple days of my reservation so we could stay in a real cabin". We could have worked something out with her then and there had she told us of her dissatisfaction. ---------------------------------------------------------- Our Reply To Her Review: 1) Winterwood Lakeside Cottage is not a “garage” that was “converted into a guest home”. It’s a home on a private estate with a two car garage in it. The garage portion is used for maintenance and cleaning supply storage and is kept locked. There are no vehicles in it. Our staff did not access this area during the stay in question. The living quarters of the cottage are not a “Conversion”. Original dated blueprints are available and show that no “conversions” have been made. There are photos and a movie showing the outside and inside of Winterwood Lakeside Cottage on the VRBO and HomeAway sites as well as on our personal cottage site. These clearly depict what guests can expect before making a reservation. There is no reason for any surprises. 2) The Wnterwood Estate has 80+ acres of private lands which are shared by the owners and cottage guests. It is not unusual for the owner’s family and maintenance staff to come and go from the property. The owners make no representation that they will move out of their home or vacate the property when guests occupy the cottage. 3) The claim regarding the cottage’s location and privacy issues is false. The cottage faces Beaver Lake, not the owner’s home which is located on its own building lot some 200 feet away. A survey of the estate showing the location the buildings is available. Satellite images are also available on line. Extensive landscaping and vegetation provide a beautiful and natural visual buffer between the cottage and the owner’s home. Further, the cottage faces the lake …. not the owner’s home. 4) “No Luxuries?” The photos, video, live webcam and reviews on the Winterwood site speak for themselves. 5) The owners are reasonable people & live on the property. The reviewer had every opportunity to express her grievances but failed to do so.. 6) The above negative review is 100% contrary to every other Winterwood Review. Winterwood Lakeside Cottage Guest Comment Books are available.

Secluded Peaceful Beauty & Fun!

  • 5 of 5

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!
