Overview

Sylvan Shores Cabin Rental Photos and Description

A unique experience you're sure to enjoy.

This fantastic property is located minutes away from the best vacation activities that Northwest Arkansas has to offer. Because of its unique layout, the property can be rented as one room or add one or two rooms for a large vacation get-away because all rooms are adjoining.

There is one bedroom with a queen bed, full bath, and kitchenette (refrigerator, microwave, sink, coffee maker, and toaster). It includes a downstairs patio with comfortable lounge chairs. The patio is serene… decorated with hanging baskets and only steps away from a beautiful hardwood forest. . .the perfect place to relax and enjoy your morning cup of coffee or afternoon and evening refreshments.

You can add a second room with twin beds or this can be made up as a King bed on lower level. Upstairs is a separate living room with a sleeper sofa. It is furnished with a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. The large deck area includes a covered seating gazebo that provides an excellent place to relax while enjoying the panoramic views of Beaver Lake and the beautiful Ozark Mountains.

Children are welcomed and pets are allowed (with a fee). No smoking inside any unit is allowed.

About Evelyn Cross

I am a the broker owner of New Horizon Realty, Inc. We have an office in Eureka Springs and at the lake area in the same building with the Sunrise-Sunset Vacations Rental. The building was originally built as a 4 unit motel, but has been a gas station, grocery store, restaurant and real estate office at different times throughout the last 50 or 60 years. We have just retored that part of the building to be a rental.

Evelyn Cross purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Evelyn Cross chose Eureka Springs

This location is ideal for those who want to stay near the Beaver Lake or the White River yet be close enough to enjoy the Victorian, story book town of Eureka Springs. Rent just one room for a comfortable room for 2; rent two rooms to sleep 4 or all three rooms for parties up to 6.

What makes this cabin unique

The property next to our building is owned by a lovely couple who have a knack for gardening, they keep chickens (you'll hear them clucking when they lay an egg and the rooster crowing in the morning). Also they raise rabbits so you might see a stray bunny roaming around the grounds. A little unique character that you don't get in your standard motel room or cabin.

And who knows you might just love the area so much you'll want to buy some real estate. We're handy, just upstairs!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were a group of 4 men and and their 4 sons who wanted to get away from the city for the weekend and play on Beaver Lake, fishing, swimming and boating. We loved the accommodations . . just perfect for our needs!

Eureka Springs, Secluded, great views

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 wonderful nights here @ this property. This place has everything! Some books to read, table games to play, 2 TV's with satellite, enough room to sleep 6 people easily, although we only had 2. Free WiFi (just to surf the internet) Evelyn has a code. There are 2 Full baths with a lot of extras provided, such as nice towels, bathwash and shampoos. The kitchenette downstairs was nice as well. There is a coffee pot and a small microwave available for the upstairs guests also. There was some coffee, filters and sugar provided, I am not sure if it was left by previous guests, but it was very enjoyable! It was like staying at your own home! We were 10 minutes from Eureka Springs, so close to all the activities available there, but also secluded, so it was very peaceful and quiet. There is a good sized deck off the top with a stunning view. We were able to enjoy our coffee here in the morning or a beautiful sunset in the evening. You can look up into the heavens and count every star at night. Everything was nice and clean, rooms and bathrooms. I had the opportunity to meet Evelyn as well and she is quite a nice lady. Her business is attached to the property, (real estate) but it is very quiet and pretty much unnoticeable. There is 1 close neighbor who was pleasant and I believe you can purchase fresh eggs from them as they have chickens (fenced). There is a very nice gas grill you can use and you could cook your breakfast or supper here while taking in the awesome landscapes! We cannot say enough good things about this property. We LOVED it! If you are sleeping on the ground floor, it is easily handicapped accessible, no stairs, but I am unsure if a wheelchair would fit thru the door. There is a lower patio as well with a great view and chairs to sit and enjoy the scenery. It is a short gravel drive of maybe 50 ft on a little hill and we rode our motorcycle, so this was a bit tricky, but we were able to get up and down the drive. There is enough room to park at least 2 cars, possibly 3, so a few families could stay. I think they allow pets, and there is a little yard for this. Evelyn has done a great job here and we think anyone would love this.

Nice little property!

  • 4 of 5

A group of 6 ladies stayed in this property for 3 nights. Plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably. It has a great deck with a view of the Lake and a nice covered patio with a table for breakfast each morning. Three bathrooms fully stocked were awesome.

This property does not have a kitchen! No stove at all! And the space was very very tiny. We brought stuff that could be heated up in the microwave. Refrigerators, one of each floor are apartment sized refrigerators and there is really no countertop area. You just need to know this going in and you can adjust accordingly. We grew a little frustrated with the lack of kitchen space but knew what to expect. It could use a few more dishes, utensils and dish towels.

The configuration of the house is very interesting! Two rooms on the bottom floor, but the bathroom for one, up the stairs. And the third room could only be accessed from crossing the deck to get to it. BUT it did have it's own bathroom which was a plus.

So pretty comfortable! Just be aware of the configuration and the need to use stairs to get to the third bathroom and the small kitchen area. We certainly enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle of town and enjoyed the view and the quiet!

Owner's Response: Glad you ladies has such a good time and enjoyed the deck and the view so much.Thanks for the tips on some of the supplies needed. . . .those have already been remedied. We do have a little bit odd floor plan and small kitchenette space but it is all very clearly described on the VRBO website so if one reads it, like you said, you'll know how to come prepared for your stay.

Great deck & patio with lake view

  • 4 of 5

The deck and patio are great and the deck offers a lake view. We loved having the gas grill to cook out every night. Everything was clean and as described in the listing. Evelyn was a wonderful host. I forgot a couple of items (that weren't easily replaceable) and she offered to ship them to me--what a relief! The location is good if you want to spend time in Eureka Springs but be out of town. Access to the lake is a 5-minute drive away.

One thing to note--spring is ant season in Arkansas, so bring resealable bags, plastic containers, etc. to store your food in. We attracted some unwelcome guests because we didn't have much with us.

We spent time at Lake Leatherwood, which is a quiet city park with extensive trails and kayak and paddleboat rentals--wish we could have spent more time there! Hobbs State Park is about 45 minutes away and has good hiking as well. We cooked most of the time, but did go out for breakfast. I'd skip breakfast at Myrna Mae's, but make sure you hit up Mud Street Cafe for their coffee and blueberry pancakes.
