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.

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!!!!

Want to clear your head from all the madness of the city? This place is where you must visit. You will not want to leave. Sit on the large balcony at night and see stars you have not seen before and experience an overall sense of wellbeing.The owner and host of the property, Eric, was very gracious and informative.

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.
