"Wonderful week. " LOVED the house." "SummerSong is the perfect rental. Location is incredible. With kayaks we were able to almost paddle to back door. Cabin has everything you might need--even umbrellas for our one rainy afternoon. I would HIGHLY encourage any group to rent this property." "Great home for a Fun weekend. Our boys loved the lake and the toys provided. Lots of very nice touches to make things feel like home." '"Loved our stay here. House very well stocked with everything we needed. Wonderful view of the lake. being able to swim and fish from the backyard was incredible." "Had a blast." "Hope to come back in the fall." "Hope to use your house again in the near future." (Kansas); "Totally AWESOME." "Will be back again." "The twin bed downstairs was the perfect place for our 4-year old granddaughter. The cabin is wonderful and decorated in lovely decor." (Oklahoma); "We had just the perfect time away and just enjoyed being here and relaxing." "There is nothing better than this cabin,."

These are just some of the direct quotes from the 2016 guest book. Like them, you will soon learn that SummerSong is an inviting and relaxing vacation cabin and ideal for families, those who just love to fish, a couple looking for a relaxing get-away, or a group of friends who want to relax. Warm, quiet, and comfortably decorated, it is a great location for families who crave a lakeside vacation experience. Kids just love it here with access to he lake just outside the downstairs door with no steep hillsides to navigate. Parents can feel secure knowing there is a gradual decline into the water, with no drop offs. It is also an ideal location for people who love fishing. Fishing boats can be moored in front of the cabin or you can just stand in front of the house and cast your lines into the lake. Couples find SummerSong to be the perfect relaxation cabin. With its gentle slope to the water's edge, wonderful outside decks, and spectacular views, even those with limited mobility find SummerSong an ideal location. Old friends who need 'catch-up' time with one another find SummerSong to be ideal for porch-sitting and nostalgic remembrances.

Guest Book Comments: 'We always enjoyed the peacefulness of the lake. We look forward to coming back.' Guests from Kansas

'Thank you very much for a wonderful place. We will contact you again about future rentals of the cabin.' Guests from New Mexico

'We live in a condo, so it was so nice to be able to fish, and we really enjoyed having a fire every evening. It is really a nice place.' Guests from Indiana (November)

'SummerSong is beautiful, serene, and very peaceful. The fireplace was especially delightful. It was a wonderful trip for us.' Guests from Arkansas (December)

Perfect for....: Kids! They will love it here. From morning til evening, from one of two decks, you can watch them swim. You won't be able to get them inside. With a gradual slope into the water, you need not worry about sudden drop-offs in the water.

The Two of You! Take a moonlight swim, just feet from your bedroom door. Then sit by the fire and allow your mind to go blank.

Friends! Cook, eat, laugh, and visit on the deck until the wee hous of the morning while waves lap the shoreline.

Fishing! With easy access to your boat, you can fish any time of day with ease! Just walk a few steps and you are on your way. Come back to the cabin in the heat of the day for a rest and head out again for wonderful night fishing. Hickory Creek Marina, just across the cove, is stocked to help you with all your tackle and bait needs.

Resting! Wave at passing boats. Catch some sun on the deck. Relax in your hammock or yard swing. Enjoy a good book between naps. Walk the shoreline.

Boating: If you love to pull the kids on the tube, SummerSong is the place. The cove in front of the cabin is a perfect place for tubing. Away from the main channel of the lake, yet large enough for some long runs and lots of turns to churn up the waves, the cove is ideal for tubing. Close enough to the cabin, friends and family can watch the fun from their seats on the shore. Or you can take a day-trip up to the Dam and back while sight-seeing on Beaver Lake.

About M. A. Shope

I purchased the property in 1999 when I was living in northwest Arkansas. Now, I live 3 hours away (to take care of my mother) and really wish I had more time to unwind sitting by the water with a good book. I have ALWAYS felt refreshed after a visit, even if it was only for a day. I really enjoy strolling the shoreline at twilight or getting in my little dingy at daybreak with a cup of coffee to quietly explore. I like taking naps in one of the several swings at SummerSong...just looking up into the leaf canopy of the oak trees is a wonder. There is nothing like nature to restore our spirit. SummerSong has always been a retreat from the busyness and noise of everyday life for me, and I am glad to be able to share this experience with others and know you will enjoy the cabin as well.

Why M. A. Shope chose Arkansas

Thanks for considering SummerSong for your Beaver Lake getaway. I purchased the cabin in 1999 after looking at several properties on the lake. I like to swim, and at SummerSong, I could just stop the lawnmower when I got hot and literally, "go jump in the lake" to cool off. I didn't want a place I had to access by car or navigate (sometimes scoot down) a long, steep pathway to the water. No long treks with tubes, floaters, etc. Just walk across the yard. Exactly what I wanted--an enchanting place to enjoy and to play. Also "Don't take your ego to the lake" is a quote that resonated with me. I was looking for a simple cabin that would lend itself to immediate relaxation and comfort.

What makes this cabin unique

Right on the water! Fantastic views. Immediate relaxing atmosphere. Excellent access for fishing. No drop-offs to worry over with children. Rocking chairs on front deck. Swings for napping. Great deck to get that vacation tan!

Enjoyed our short stay here. Had everything we needed. Easy to fish from the beach. Loved watching the birds from the deck. Out door space was great. Very comfortable. Would like to come back.

Lake house was 'ewwwww'

  • 1 of 5

The house was just run down, out of date...

1- from the mismatched rag-tag furniture that literally lined every single room

2 - to the greasy/grime on the couches (we used blankets from home to sit on when on the couches)

3- and the furniture on top of furniture (there were shelve units on top of tables); dirt and rocks under the indoor staircase? extension cords and plugs everywhere, as in everywhere.

4- to EVERY single imaginable surface literally covered with 'stuff' - you couldn't really use tables because you had to relocate all of this 'decor'

5- the mattresses upstairs and downstairs were stained, (horrible)

6- one set of sheets was so full of hair - we put a second set (a light blue) that was bleach stained... finally we went and bought new at WalMart... I understand guests are to wash the sheets and towels - but even the towels were covered in various hairs. (we left early and neglected to put our linens in the dryer accidentally)

We're all about fishing and lake houses - but.. no.

Owner's Response: I am so very sorry that you did not have a good experience during your visit. The cabin has been rented seasonally ( 4 months a year) since 2008, and yours is the first negative feedback received, so I am taking it very seriously. SummerSong started out as a one-room cabin many years ago and as owners came and went, they added on to it in a “house that topsy built” fashion. Some folks, like me, find this a charming feature in a lake cabin and was one of the reasons I purchased it 20 years addition to its fantastic views and best-on-the-lake access to the water. Someone even built an indoor garden feature—the rocks you reference under the staircase. True, there are plugs everywhere; this came at the request of guests with multiple electronic devices. With each guest having 1-2 devices, and generally 8 guests at a time—multiple plugs have been a must. The table on top of the table is actually a small hutch on the end of a kitchen cabinet. It holds cookbooks for extended stay guests who want to cook, coffee cups, pens/pencils, binoculars, etc. for easy access for guests. I have tried to decorate the cabin in the “charming, yet rustic” fashion referenced in the website content and clearly visible in the website photographs. Most guests want and appreciate a cabin/cottage-like décor, and this has been referenced in guest comments. Mismatched furniture is often prevalent, even trendy, in cabins (and I have some—for instance the large coffee table perfect for table games for children), but there are several matching items -- Twin beds, dining chairs, matching Basset chairs upstairs and down, matching linens/quilts on all beds from Company Store, matching sofa and loveseat upstairs, wicker hutch, dresser, and lamp and some antiques. I realize that tastes differ—what I might find charming for a cabin, you might consider “rag tag.” I sent a third party to the cabin today, and they could not find the mattress stains nor have any subsequent guests mentioned them. They found no issues with the sheets either. The queen mattress is only a year old and all mattresses have always had mattress pads. I do wish you had called me with your concerns so I could have worked with you to remedy them while you were there. SummerSong has been enjoyed by hundreds of people; I am sorry you were not among them.

Wonderful house with perfect location

  • 5 of 5

House slept 8 adults easily. Decks are fantastic. One of the most thoughtfully appointed homes we have rented. Owner quickly responded to all our inquiries. Water so close and and easily accessible that even I (that hadn't swam in a few years) enjoyed floating around! Lovely home and would highly recommend. Hope to return in the fall.

Lake Lovers Dream

  • 5 of 5

Had everything you need for a lake vacation or if you want to just relax outside on deck or inside. All the comforts of home. We took our boat and the marina was just across the lake. Was able to park our boat outside cabin. We fished in the evening and rode boat during the day. Had few rainy days but didn't stop the fun.

Located about 15 minutes off of I-49, SummerSong is located on the shores of Beaver Lake in the Ozark Mountains. With 450 miles of shoreline, visitors can take in the natural beauty of limestone bluffs, natural caves, and wonderful lake and mountain views. A wide variety of trees and flowering shrubs offer many hours of enjoyment. In the fall, the Ozarks are unmatched for their brilliant fall colors of orange, yellow, and red.

SummerSong is near all the major cities of Northwest Arkansas: Fayetteville (Home of the Univ. of AR) , Springdale (Minor League Baseball), Bentonville (Corporate Home of Wal-mart), Bella Vista (Some of the best golf courses anywhere), and Rogers (great shopping and dining). Historic, quaint, and long a tourist attraction of Arkansas, the city of Eureka Springs is only 45 minutes away.
