Whether you just take the opportunity this setting gives you to soak in the nature that abounds around you, read a good book relaxing on one of the decks or get the Guys together for an awesome fishing trip, (there is a boat launch close to the property so you can easily tie up to the end of the side deck (that is DECK, not DOCK...there is not a Dock available with this property), you can bet this will be the vacation spot you will not forget!

Sweet retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many VRBOs over the last several years and this is one of my favorites. It was a beautiful property! The house was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The shoreline was perfect! Rocks line the whole shoreline so there is no mud or mess to worry about and the water is clear and beautiful. In fact it was even deep enough in spots our kids were able to jump off a higher rock ledge into the water. The kids also caught several fish right off the bank. The cove was peaceful and the land gorgeous. We did end up with ticks all over us every time we explored the property though, even with bug spray so be prepared! Several people did get lost on the way to the cabin as mapquest took them the wrong way, so I would definitely suggest having the directions that Karen is kind enough to provide as a back up. We were really worried we were going to have trouble getting out of the long rocky driveway, but even those of us without 4 wheel drive were able to get out without trouble. It was wonderful to be secluded and unplugged for a week and the only time we really left the cabin was when we were out on the lake on the boat. Thanks for a wonderful family trip. It is one we will always remember fondly!

Owner's Response: Kim, I am so glad that you and your family had such a good time at my cabin. One of the reasons I decided to turn it into a vacation rental was so that others could enjoy the peace and quiet Beaver Lake has to offer. I’m glad you found the cabin clean and well stocked. My housekeeper is a neighbor and takes great pride in providing a well-kept house to all guests. The woods can be a great place to relax and enjoy nature but sometimes the pests do invade! Cutter Deep Woods is my favorite insect repellant to keep them at bay! I’m so glad you enjoyed fishing from the bank. I enjoy just watching the fish in the clear water. I appreciate you taking the time to review your stay and I do hope you will return again soon. Scott (Owner)

Beautiful cabin, beautiful scenery, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Terrific property. Very picturesque setting, on a deep cove. Saw bald eagle fly by on a couple days. It is very relaxing to stay there. We (total party of 10) were there during Thanksgiving 2015 week. Watched a lot of football on the Direct TV that is provided. It was actually nice not having cell coverage for the week at the house. The kids spent time building campfires, fishing, playing board games, watching movies vs. staring at their phones. Would recommend this Hamley Retreat cabin. We all liked it very much. None of us had 4 wheel drive, and we had a lot of rain while there, all of us were able to get out without any real issues. My youngest wanted to stay another week! Thank you for the terrific holiday week, we loved staying at your cabin!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know! These owners take great pride in the wonderful care of their home, and it definitely shows. Good to know about the road going out, even in rain! We always err on the side of caution when an unpaved road (and sloped) is involved. Thank you again!

We visited family at the cabin in 2011 and knew we would be there ourselves one day. We just got home after spending the week of 8-13-15 at the cabin. We are definitely retuning next summer. Love the location, the cabin is roomy and well arranged. It was clean, quiet, peaceful. Love the yard and wooded area as well as the cove and deck right on the water. Scott was very nice and a pleasure to talk with. Can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: We always feel so lucky to have such wonderful renters as these! It makes what we do truly rewarding. "Hamley" is definitely a special Vacation Rental, the cabin, the setting, the peace and quiet of nature; and the owner Scott, takes such great care of his home, it shows in the satisfaction of all of his renters! Thank you so much for "trying" us out, and yes, I've got you all set for next year! Karen Gaither & Melaney Matthis, Beaver Lake Vacation Rentals, LLC

A place to make great memories!

  • 4 of 5

This is a cabin with a great view, very peaceful and relaxing, good size bedrooms, comfortable beds, inside is clean and homelike. We didn't catch any fish but it was March, I can imagine it would be very good in the summer. It is about 40 minutes to a Super Walmart. We went to the War Eagle Cavern. Cresent Hotel Ghost Tour- got some amazing pictures, Turpentine Creek, beautiful animals, but spent most of the time at the cabin exploring the grounds. The roads are crazy but that is expected in Arkansas. We brought inflatable boats for our teenage kids and they had a ball in the lake! Great family game nights and bonfires, and we brought home great memories!

Done Absolutely Right!

  • 5 of 5

Scott, I must say you really did an outstanding job on your property. So secluded and peaceful, right on the lake and the house is so comfortable with many amenities.

Getting to your house is beautiful, with the trip through the woods (yes people, there is a road) is really neat. I couldn't imagine a better place to get away from it all. We will definitely be back!! Thank you so much!
