1000 sq. ft. of a rustic charmed cedar sided cabin on the Lake with a PRIVATE BOAT DOCK, welcomes you to 2 tranquil wooded acres in the Ozark Mountains. We like to call it a 'LAKESIDE HERMITAGE'. Stay 7 nights and pay for 6!
The interior of this 3 bedroom, 2 bath cabin is surrounded by a warm tongue and grooved knotty pine throughout. The great room with 17' ceilings boasts a full kitchen, solid oak dining set, living area w/ large flat screen TV/DVD and lots of windows. A patio door also opens to the deck built around a large towering oak tree for natural shade and faces the lake equipped with patio furniture and a gas grill.
The master bedroom has a queen size bed, massive country French pine dresser and nightstand, and a flat screen TV. The bunk room is off of the master and has its own separate entrance to the bath. The bathroom has a large shower with oil bronze bath fixtures and a granite vanity sink top. The loft features a bedroom with a daybed and attached pull out trundle (both with quality mattresses which can accommodate 2 adults comfortably), private bath with tub, and a sitting area with a bistro table and chairs overlooking the great room and the Lake where a game of cards, chess, or taking in a good book can be had.
At dusk, sit on your balcony or your private boat dock on the water, and enjoy the serene sounds of Owls, Bobwhites, Whip-poor-wills and Coyotes echoing through the valley. The evening also brings a variety of bats bug-surfing overhead for a midnight snack, and the occasional flying squirrel can be caught raiding the bird feeders under the cover of darkness. Or, perhaps gaze into the radiant night sky, absent of all city lights while searching for your favorite star, chase satellites to the horizon, or wish upon a shooting star while swapping stories around a warm crackling campfire.
Also, Mosquitoes are few to NONE!!! Yes, this truly is the 'Best of both Worlds'!
If you are looking for an escape from your fast paced world, basking in the natural tranquility and beauty of the Ozark Mountains, 'THE LAKESIDE HERMITAGE' on Bull Shoals Lake in Arkansas has what you seek. This clear blue lake was formed by the damming of the White River in the mid 1950's, and has been attracting all who love the outdoors ever since. It offers 45,500 acres of lake and 1050 miles of mountain shoreline, straddling the borders of Arkansas and Missouri. Fishing tournaments are held year round because of the outstanding fishing in this area and harbors species such as Walleye, Crappie, Catfish, and numerous varieties of Bass. The amazing cliff structures beneath the waters surface are not only great for fish habitat, but is well known for the great scuba diving and spear fishing due to the clarity of the lake. Pleasure boating is quite safe and relatively light, even on weekends and holidays. The White River, below the dam, is 18 scenic miles away via windy mountain roads, and is world renowned for its trout fishing, where your limit of Cutthroat, Rainbow, and/or Browns can easily be caught. This area remains to still be deemed as 'The mid-south's best kept secret' thus far!

When I was young I spent much time in Arkansas visiting family. However this was the first time I have ever stayed in North Arkansas, and what an amazing trip it was! The cabin was spotless, cozy, inviting and serene, and I cannot wait until we have the opportunity for a much longer trip! There were four of us, two kids and two adults, and it was the perfect amount of room to give everyone some privacy. Spacious enough for more people, but the loft was a perfect little area for my kids.
This is my family's 3rd vacation at the Hermitage. We discovered it when my daughter and son-in-law spent their honeymoon there. Her dad and I got to see it then, and we fell in love with it. We have scheduled our summer vacation there for the past three summers. It is charmingly decorated and always clean. It has a private dock where we can tie up our boat while there. We love the swim deck. My husband and I are ages 59 and 60, so we are grateful for the golf cart the owners provide for easy trips between cabin and dock. When we arrived for our stay last week, there was a sigh from each of us that said, "Ahhh, it's good to be back at the cabin." We love waking up to coffee on the deck with a view of the lake. After a quick breakfast, we always head down to the lake for swimming, wake-boarding, skiing, & tubing. It's a great place for fun and play, and with the secluded location, it's perfect for rest and relaxation, too. We highly recommend the Hermitage. Our heartfelt thanks to the owners for sharing their lovely place. We think its a real treasure.
This is our second vacation at the cabin and we had a blast. We enjoyed fishing, boating, tubing, and swimming. Only issue we had was getting our boys out of the water so we can get to some fishing. I did not turn the TV on all week and my boys only watched 2 hours while we were there. That is really impressive. The caretakers were extremely helpful with any questions and shared some worthwhile activities that we all enjoyed. We look forward to going back.
Our family has spent the past two summers as guests at the Hermitage cabin! The cabin is exceptional and super clean. This is an excellent location that provides seclusion yet easy access to your own personal boat slip. The location at Little Sister Creek Arm is ideal for wake boarding and skiing! The owners, caretakers, and cleaning staff have excellent service! Our family looks forward to spending next summer here!
My husband and I, along with one of our good friends, enjoyed our stay in the cabin in the woods! Upon our arrival, we noticed the fridge had basic condiments, there were ample towels in both bathrooms (as well as plenty of toilet paper & paper towels), and the cabin was stocked with books to read, movies to watch, and games to play. The location of the cabin was perfect for us! We love the woods, animals, trees, and Fall weather. We saw numerous grey squirrels and even one that appeared completely white. Also, the birds were plentiful and sang us songs every morning. :) The golf cart allowed us to get to the private dock, with ease, and though we did not take the pontoon out, my husband was impressed with it (he's a boat junkie). The deck off the back of the house was awesome, and we spent every night out on it, either conversing, listening to the trees & critters, or watching the Royals baseball game. Julie (the owner) is awesome to work with and answered all of our questions, without hesitation. Also, she gave us TONS of information on the area and where we should visit for the most breath-taking views of Arkansas. I recommend staying at the Hermitage and want to say "Thank you, Julie for everything!". The only reason I did not give this rental 5 stars is because I never do. I never give perfect reviews.... that's just me though. :)
Husband, Wife and our Lab dog treasured our stay at Lake Hermitage. We felt at home the minute we arrived. It felt like a treehouse relaxing on their deck! We spent many hours fishing off the dock as our dog played and swam near the shore and dock entry. The last night of October 15th, we sat outside and watched a beautiful thunder storm. I enjoyed going upstairs to soak in the quaint ambiance and fresh, clean bathroom. After an over 10 hour drive and arriving early, we called the owners and they happily let us drive on to the cabin several hours early. My husband and I always felt they wanted us to be happy and comfortable. A return trip has already been discussed.
WE HAVE A PRIVATE BOAT DOCK WITH A SWIMMING PLATFORM!! So, bring your boat/jet ski or rent one at the local marina. We also have a 7 person capacity fishing pontoon for rent! Tour Bull Shoals Lake Dam (the 5th largest in the US), view the mountains and the lakes for miles from the 'Top of the Ozarks Tower', go hiking thru many groomed/mapped trails in the Buffalo River National Forest or float the Buffalo River. Perhaps take a scenic drive down Hwy. 7, known as one of America's top 10 most scenic highways and hit a few of the several antique stores along the way, or just grill out on your own deck and take in the tranquility of wooded seclusion of The Lakeside Hermitage with the sounds of nature and the gentle waves hitting the shoreline just kickin' back and relaxing. The kids can stay busy with horseshoes, board games, DVD's, or fish from shore about 50 yards from your deck. Please note that shopping (Walmart Supercenter, restaurants, gas and other public activities are only 12-15 miles
