Now, let us tell you more about the unique Winterwoosd Estate.

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 and Mountains as well as 3700 feet of Lake shore 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 throwback 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.

We look forward to meeting and having you as our guests.

Why Eric or Sativa Schabacker chose Arkansas

The owners of Winterwood have lived in the Adirondack Mountains for many years prior to living in the Ozarks. They brought with them the architectural style of the Adirondacks and incorporated it in the construction of the Winterwood estate and its lake side cottage.

What makes this cabin unique

There are many benefits to visiting Winterwood that can't easily be found elsewhere. The natural setting of wooded mountains, lake views, gigantic limestone bluffs and its tranquil private setting add up to a unique and beautiful place to visit.

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.

Peaceful, Easy Feeling

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at Winterwood. As before, everything was fantastic. The owners are gracious and friendly, and the recording studio tour is fascinating. Staying here for even a couple of days is a great way to recharge your batteries and get back in touch with nature.

Wonderful cottage!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got back from our long weekend at this cottage. It was simply wonderful!!!!! The cottage is gorgeous and the grounds are lovely. We enjoyed hanging out on the dock all day and resting at the cottage in the evening. We couldn't ask for a better place to enjoy our long weekend.

Thanks Eric!!! We hope to return next year!!!

Our family had the most wonderful weekend at Winterwood. It is just lovely. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are large are very clean and updated. Our grandson had such a wonderful time that he never asked to turn on the TV!!!!! The deck is a wonderful place for your morning coffee and your afternoon cocktail. Bring your binoculars!!!!! I forgot mine and hated it because we saw lots of wildlife. There are many steps but hey, we ate and drank all weekend and when I got home I had lost 2 pounds!! Great dock at the bottom of the hill. We sat on the dock upon arrival and saw many fish and enjoyed the view. This an A+ rental!!!!! We will be back!!!!

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.

Eureka Springs and Beaver Lake have many reasons to be both proud and thankful. We’re proud of our neighbors and friends who live and work here and we’re proud of our talented artists and musicians who make our lives so enjoyable. We’re especially thankful to live in an area surrounded by a wealth of natural beauty. With so many mountains, lush forests, pristine steams and rivers, it’s no wonder Arkansas is known as “The Natural State.”
