About M. A. Shope
We purchased the property in 1999 when we were living in northwest Arkansas. Now, we live 3 hours away (to take care of my mother) and really wish there were more opportunities to visit and 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 the spirit. SummerSong has always been a retreat from the busyness and noise of everyday life, and we are glad to be able to share this experience with others. We know you will enjoy the cabin. We are always anxious to do anything we can to make your time at the cabin just the best, so always call if you have any questions or concerns. Look forward to meeting you!

Why M. A. Shope chose Lowell
Thanks for considering SummerSong for your Beaver Lake getaway. We 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 path or driveway 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
The cabin is truly “Right on the water!” The lake access is just about the best anywhere on Beaver Lake. Guests who have not been swimming in years have been coaxed into the water as the cabin is so close to the cabin. Also, the views are just FANTASTIC. There is an Immediate relaxing atmosphere when you arrive. We work on keeping the cabin stocked with items guests will need. A list is available by request. Excellent access for fishing. No drop-offs to worry over with children. Plenty of seating both indoors and out. There are four swings on the property. The upstairs deck has an extra-long one for those tall folks in the family to stretch out and nap. The front deck is great for getting that tan and enjoying a favorite beverage with friends or family. 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 us, find this a charming feature in a lake cabin and was one of the reasons we purchased it 20 years ago...in addition to its fantastic views and best-on-the-lake access to the water. Someone even built an indoor garden feature—rocks under the staircase—that we have never used except to store plants in the winter. The kitchen cabinets are original to that first room. We decided to keep them rather than replace them with modern ones. Our other touches have been to re-do the upstairs bath (adding a deep, soaking tub), extend the upstairs deck to the carport, replace the kitchen and bath flooring and completely tile the downstairs and both entryways into the cabin. We hope to add a sleeping porch to the south side of the house soon.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Best location ever if you love the water and have a boat. Easy to keep the boat pulled up.
Great place. Sit in the shade or in the sun. The cove was quiet and all ours most of the time. The house had all we needed and was very spacious. Only negative was having to put sheets on the beds and required to wash them before leaving. That was a big turnoff for people taking a vacation.
Summer fun with grandchildren
The home was a perfect location for having water fun with children. There's a gentle slope to the water and plenty of shoreline for play. The home was the perfect size, very comfortable and cozy. I loved that the basic staples were there for cooking. We had lots of fun just sitting on the porch swing deck visiting . The living area is nice, big and open with lots of seating. My grandson caught 16 fish so it was a great fishing spot for kids. Something for consideration if you're considering this home for rental is that both bathrooms in the home are located in the bedrooms so depending on how many are in your group people will have to walk through the bedroom at night to use it. It didn't bother us at all but it might someone else. I gave it five stars because it really was a great home for having children at the lake. Thank you to the owners for creating such a comfortable family environment! I loved the eclectic feel of the cabin.
Great stay. Not long enough. Coffee in front of the lake every morning with a cool breeze, birds singing and the sound of the water against the shore.
Nice & Quiet
Home was very quaint and right on the lake. We spent an entire day swimming right off the shoreline with noodles provided by the owner (could use a few more of those).
Second day rented a boat at a local marina for tubing. Please note the marina across the lake from the home no longer rents boats so we had to drive to the northern part of Beaver Lake to find a marina.
Third day spent visiting local micro breweries. There are many highly rated within a 30 minute drive from this home. Good beer. Also a few wineries.
Overall the home is great. Please note is an older lake cabin home that has been expanded over the years. If you are looking for the Ritz this is not the place for you. If you are looking for something that reminds you of visits to your grandma's lake house book it.
Perfect on the lake getaway
We wanted a house on the lake for a family vacation and this house delivered! It was wonderful to sit on the deck and watch the kids swim. We had 4 adults and 2 teenagers with room for all of us. The house was very clean and well kept. The only thing we wished that was different (but is no fault of the owner) is that it was closer to town. It's a 20-30 minute drive one way but if you plan your grocery runs and trips, it's not a problem. We had a relaxing week together and the house/environment meant we created many great memories together. Thank you for that!
Awesome let get away
It was a really really nice Lakeside house. With all the kitchen stocked nicely. My only complaints were having to stress out about getting all the sheets and towels laundered and put back before we left. If not we would lose our two and $50 deposit. So other than that it was perfect
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.
