Quiet Cottage, 2 Bd, 1 Bd, Outdoor Greatroom, Firepit, Private Cove & Party Dock
Hi! I'd like to introduce myself! I'm Sunny Lewis, the owner, architect, builder, decorator, repair woman, maid and Inn Keeper at Cute Little Cottage. …. a builder by trade, by compulsion and by God given gift; …. a lover of all living things both plant and animal; …. in awe of the beauty and wonder I see in the world. After 32 years I still can’t believe I live here! In 2002 I lost my high school sweetheart to cancer. I continue to live in my home here at Horseshoe Bend because the beauty found in the Ozark Mountain’s, Beaver Lake, and the great neighbors I have here…. (that includes the wildlife) gives me peace beyond words! I fish, swim, bike, hike, boat, and garden daily.... then when I choose.... I clean up, change turn back into a lady and with a 15-minute drive, it all changes into the world of shopping, dining, theater, museums, concerts, and the long list of entertainments. It is a life lived in two worlds! Cute little Cottage was built for my son, daughter-in-law and my grandson. Now I have the opportunity to share it with some new friends. Life does not get any better than living where you love, loving your work, and having new friends to share it with. Really .... Come on out, sit on the deck and rock awhile! What are you waiting for? You know you want to.... See you soon, Sunny Lewis
Sunny purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Sunny chose Rogers
In 1985, I moved to this property from Enid, Oklahoma with my late husband Dan, and our three children. We already knew Horseshoe Bend and Beaver Lake as the vacation spot we loved. It was quite different then. The options of things to do in no way resembles what we have at our fingertips now! What has not changed in the Horseshoe Bend Area is the same quaint, serene, almost pristine outdoor life. We really seem to have it all here.... Our Christmas Cards that year summed it up pretty well........ “We've found the rainbow’s end ... our new home is at Horseshoe Bend!”
What makes this Cottage unique
What makes Cute Little Cottage unique is that it was built on three acres with a location having a huge diversity of activities. And yet still allows for the privacy and solitude that we need to rewind on our vacations. Here is a sampling of the activities I'm talking about and the Distances * Horseshoe Bend Park entrance ----2 Minutes Boat Launch, Marina, Swimming, Play Grounds * Historic Monte Ne, AR ---- 4 miles Monte Ne Chicken Inn, Coin Harvey sites, * Business Hwy 71 Rogers ---- 7 miles Wal-mart Mkt, Frisco Park, Farmers Market * War Eagle Mill and Caverns ---- 9 miles * Hobbs State Park-Conservation ---- 9 miles * I-540 exit 83 New Hope Rd ---- 10 miles * Bentonville, Arkansas ---- 12 miles Wal-Mart General Offices, Cooper Chapel Crystal Bridges Museum of Art, Bentonville Old Town Square and Park Farmers Market, Wal-mart Visitors Center Peel Mansion and Historic Garden * Pea Ridge Nat.

Family vacation for 5 n a dog
Adequate but small....nice deck n dog run. The cottage is outdated but worked well for our stay.
Met all of our needs for a PERFECT weekend at the lake!
Dirty and outdated.
The owner was really nice. The place was not really cute. It was last decorated in the 1980s. The cottage was dirty from 5’ 6” up. The owner came in and repaired several things after we arrived. The air conditioning was came from two loud window units. One of them is located inches from the bedside. The lake side where access was available was trashy and steep. Available appliances were either incomplete or ancient. We left earlier. However the owner was very kind to allow my husband to return for the night after he found himself to far from home to return that night.
Great clean place and wonderful accommodations
My family and I enjoyed the atmosphere and accommodations offered by Sunny. The cabin outdoor patio was wonderful and relaxing. My kids enjoyed the remote location and the view of wildlife was remarkable. Definitely five out of five stars, I would stay there again!
Quiet nice spot, easy and comfortable.
Sunny was such a great host, she is just terrific. The cottage was clean and comfortable and well supplied with cookware dishes and everything you might need, except for food and drink. We cooked most days and got take out a few times. Sunny was kind to bring us fresh eggs. The scenery in the area is beautiful. The Cottage is about 15--20 minutes from shopping etc. in Rogers, AR, which has a really nice downtown. We were also right near the Park and Marina at Horseshoe Bend.
We were able to see wildlife, including deer and birds in the area near the cottage and at the parks (we went to Prairie Creek as well). We made day trips out to the Crystal Bridges museum for the Chihuly glass exhibit, Eureka Springs, Beaver Dam, drove the Scenic 7 and several other scenic drives, and did some shopping (Cabela's) and dining (PF Chang) at the mall. The weather cooperated most days. We fished but nothing was biting. It was June Bug season during our stay, which got bit annoying, other than that, things were very pleasant.
Scenic and Peaceful!
Sunny was very accommodating on scheduling our last minute search for a place to reunite with our grandson and his family. We found the accommodations are very clean, homey and comfortable. Everything you'd expect to be there is there, so you'll find everything you'll need for a relaxing stay. The expansive and fully furnished deck is a real plus! We spent most of our time there playing board games, dining, and just reuniting with family. There's a basketball hoop for the kids along with games and plenty of reading materials. We never got the time to use the outside fire pit, but Sunny had it all ready with plenty of firewood already in place.
Speaking of plenty, we lost count on the number of deer on this property!! Lots of chipmunks too. And take Sunny's recommendation on some of the best family style fried chicken you will ever have at the Monte Ne Inn restaurant...not to be missed!
Thanks for a great stay.
