Arkansas House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Queen Bed and Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-14)

Set on 12 acres with stunning views of Lake Norfork in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, Anedodi is an exclusive cabin rental hideaway. Decked out with premium features throughout the house, decks and landscaped gardens. Every detail is impeccable, from the luxury organic bed linens to the giant egg bathtubs and natural wood, silk and wool decor. A cleansing experience for mind body and soul - the house has been designed to be 'green' and create a healthy, relaxing environment for your family.

Named after the Cherokee Indian word for 'adventure', there is plenty to keep everyone entertained. From exciting water sports, to fishing, hiking, biking, climbing, crystal mining, antiquing - or just relaxing on one of the plush daybeds or hammocks scattered around the extensive grounds.

The perfect respite from city life - all you can see is green trees, the clear fresh mountain water lake, deer, butterflies and hummingbirds. Anedodi really is a taste of paradise - a chance for you to kick back, experience new things as a family and have no cares in the world for an endless week of fun.

Anedodi sleeps up to 12 people comfortably including a sofa bed in the lounge and 2 rollaway beds. The large 700 sqft deck is perfect for entertaining and could host an event for up to 100 people. If you are planning a wedding or a family event, there are plenty of stunning lake view locations for you to choose from throughout the 12 acres. The lodge would be delighted to help you plan your special event - flowers, decorated arch, marquis, tables, chairs, invitations and catering.

Have a dip in our 40 foot luxury heated pool then relax on the giant, plush daybeds or sun loungers, all with wonderful views of the lake. Try out your own personal 9-hole Frisbee Golf Course - Experience one of the most up and coming sports in America. Fun for all ages, test your skills through strategically placed baskets throughout our giant oaks. Also in the grounds is a shuffleboard game and a horse shoe pit. Rainy days can be spent in the games room enjoying the pool table, table tennis, piano, drum kit, Wii games; or in the living room with a DVD library and local wildlife books.

Tracey Marina is also just 3 miles away, so you can keep your boat here for the duration of your stay or rent a boat. The marina provides fuel, snacks and essentials for your water-sporting on Lake Norfork. There are also a few scuba diving shops nearby, where you can hire all the necessary equipment and even get your open water certification with a 3-day course.

About Hilary Altman

I run a luxury travel company based in New York. I have been organizing luxury tailor-made vacations around the world for 20 years.

Hilary Altman purchased this house in 2008

Why Hilary Altman chose Arkansas

The area is completely unspoilt and natural with clean, clear water, more wildlife than the Amazon! And something to do in every season... however there were no luxury accommodations. We wanted to add a new element to the region - an eco-friendly luxury vacation rental.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic views of the lake, complete privacy of 12 acres and use of a private pool, frisbee golf course, lots of deck space and luxury accommodations all with ensuite bathrooms. The marina is just 4 miles away, from which you can rent a variety of boats and equipment to make sure you hit the lake in style.

Guestbook comments from the owner

So sorry it has taken me this long to get back to you. We had a GREAT time! The cabin was beautiful as well as all the surroundings. We plan to go back next year! And, we have spread the word to our friends and family that it is a wonderful place to visit!



Hope all is well with you.



Take care and thanks again for the lovely accommodations!

A House That Felt More Like A Resort

  • 5 of 5

It is very difficult to narrow it down to our "favorite" thing about Anedodi! Every year my husband and myself take our two daughters, their husbands, and our five grandsons on a vacation to the beach. However, this year we decided to try something different and we are so thankful we found this VRBO! It is by far the BEST house we have ever stayed at for vacation. The minute we pulled into the driveway we were literally blown away at the sheer beauty of the setting. Then, we stepped into a beautiful home with gorgeous views of the lake from EVERY room!!! The beds were all very comfortable and each bedroom felt very private. The showers were amazing and each bathroom was VERY clean with plenty of room. The living area allowed for easy conversation between the kitchen and den. We were a little concerned that we might miss getting out at night for dinner and/or entertainment but we ALL wanted to have every meal in the beautiful and comfortable deck overlooking the lake. My daughters also loved the safety feature of the pool cover since they have small children. The week we stayed ended up being a little cool but because the pool was heated it felt great! We also loved the game room downstairs so the adults could visit while the kids played. An added bonus was the boat rental. Sean, the care taker, was so accommodating and more than willing to help us in any way he could... We LOVED going out on the lake and it was a very short distance from the home to the boat launch. Plus, it was very reasonable priced and Sean even packed us a well stocked ice chest. Lastly, we must mention that we loved the home being so pet friendly since they are a very important part of our family!! Thank you for a week filled with wonderful and lasting memories!!! We WILL be back next year!!!!

Great experience with Anedodi!

  • 5 of 5

Our family along with 2 other families spent 3 nights recently in this cabin. We had a great time and were very comfortable sleeping 6 adults 6 children. Even though the pool wasn't open yet (too cold), the kids had lots of fun playing on the 12 acres: basketball, campfire, disc golf, horseshoes, swing-set. Huge playroom with pool table and ping-pong great for cold days or late night games. Accommodations were very clean with 3 full size bathrooms. Great deck for grilling and visiting with friends. Very good experience and will stay again.

When we arrived at Anedodi, every single one of us said, “WOW!”

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to spend two weeks at Anedodi and from beginning to end, the vacation and the home were amazing. We were warmly welcomed by Sean with everything we needed, including arranging our pontoon rental. Everything far exceeded our high expectations. We simply could not have asked for anything more!

It is such a unique property - offering a quiet, private and relaxing setting with stunning lake views and up close wildlife encounters. The cabin is absolutely gorgeous, beautifully finished and furnished and with all of the amenities you could ever want. EVERY detail has been thought of!

Everyone of us - adults, children and teenagers, enjoyed the pool area. The adults found it to be a fabulous way to refresh and unwind, especially during our late night swims under the star filled night sky. Because the pool is heated, it is the perfect temperature even in the crisp morning or evening air.

We took full advantage of everything this property had to offer: the fire pit, eating s'mores, talking and laughing until our sides hurt. We had competitions of horse shoes and disc golf, as well as ping pong and pool. We had game night and movie night. Many of our days were spent cruising around on the lake in the pontoon - cliff diving, swimming, fishing and riding the "pull behind hotdog".

Our first day out, for a few hours, we were blessed to have Sean captain the boat and tour us around the lake pointing out the best fishing spots, the cliff diving possibilities and many interesting sites. Sean is delightfully friendly and a wealth of information. We all enjoyed his company so much, we were sad to leave him at the marina and embark off on our own.

I would be remiss if I did not mention the quality and comfort of the beds and luxurious linens. It was a superb sleeping experience. We all slept like babies every night we were there! Although we all appreciated the high end rain showers, the ladies and children especially loved the Jacuzzi and unique egg tub.

THE ONE THING WE ALL APPRECIATED THE MOST - THE CAREFUL CARE WE RECEIVED FROM SEAN. He made certain that our vacation was the best it could possibly be. And he certainly succeeded. We all agree that he must be one of the nicest, most accommodating people we have ever met!

This was a perfect family/friend vacation! I would not change one thing! It provided the perfect environment for each of us to enjoy and reconnect with each other. We are returning next year!

Awesome family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great and had plenty of things for the whole family to do. From the swimming pool or relaxing on the back deck with the lake view, to the front yard that looks like a park and has it's own Frisbee golf course and swing set. When we had enough sun we could go inside and play pool or ping pong in the game room. After barbequing at night, the wifi was great and we were able to stream movies on the TV, or sit on the back porch and watch as the fireflies emerged from the trees. It's 5 minutes to the marina, about 15 minutes to the white river, and about 15 minutes to a Wal-Mart so easy access to pick up groceries. I would definitely recommend this as a family vacation spot. You won't be disappointed.

Great place for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Anedodi (July, 2015) We had a great time! There are a lot of great things to say about the house. The lot itself is really beautiful. The front yard is probably 5 acres or so, in the mornings we'd sometimes see deer. The back has even more acreage including the beautiful view of the lake. We didn't use the fire-pit or the horse shoes or the basketball - but there is plenty to do both outside and inside. In the game room we did have a ping-pong tournament, played lots of pool and appreciated the old piano! The retreat is well-equipped with high-end finishes. Each bathroom is different so we had to try out each others tubs or showers! The beds are very good and provided a good nights sleep. The high speed internet is also wonderful. We were able to do live streaming of netflix movies and some music as well. The kitchen is well-eqiupped. We cooked most meals there, including blueberry pancakes after the fishing guide trip - and the eqiupment was all there. We normally take a sharp knife, which we did on this trip as well, but they had good knives, too -and lots of seasonings! The support staff onsite were very helpful, answering any question we had. Everyone in the area was very friendly and helpful.

The marina is a short drive away - that's where we went to rent pontoon boat. The lake was very high when we were there so we couldn't access the one that you can rent from Anedodi. We brought games, but there were several games there. A good time was had by all! If you are planning a trip to this area of Arkansas, Anedodi is the place to stay!
